10:13AM - Some times you need to go crazy. Other times you need to go crazier.

I'm seriously tired of feeling this way.
I'm going to make a change.

Things will be different.
I'll make it so.

Current mood: resolute

I'm fine.
I think I just had a Valentine's Day hangover.

Let the games begin!

And by games, I mean Statistics test.

1:02PM - For all the lovers...

I forgot how much I love explodingdog.com.
It is very awesome.

If you don't know about it, people send in titles to Sam Brown and then he picks the ones that he likes and draws pictures with those titles.
He totally used a title of mine once. It was "It Is Not As Bad As It Seems".

Anyway, this one is a new favorite of mine.
I think that it's pretty fitting for today.
And hopefully, if you are sad, it will make you feel a little bit better.

Let's Get It OnCollapse )

Good times. Good times.

I did not go to bed until 2:30 last night.
I could not make myself get up until 9:30.
I didn't get to class until 12:35 (it starts at 12:00).
I ended up not even going. I kind of feel bad about it.
I also did not do the homework assignment that was due today.
It's ok though because he drops our lowest grade.
Maybe the fact that my Get Out Of Jail Free card is gone will finally make me buckle down and apply myself.


Or maybe not.

So now I'm just sitting at school until my counseling appointment.
And oh boy, are there things to tell!

The day has started out ok.
I hope that things continue to not suck.
Perhaps studying for my Statistics test will help to keep my mind off things.

(see above)

No parties for me tonight.
I just wasn't up to it, I guess.
And yesterday's little preview left me extremely anxious and tense.
So there's really no telling what the main event would have done.

I stayed home today.
Gave my dad some birthday presents.
Ate delicious cake.
Went to Sam's.
Played some guitar.
Attempted to listen to a Ricky Gervais podcast (but fell asleep instead).
Attempted to watch the Pro Bowl (but found it to be rather silly and unnecessary).
Succeeded in watching Flags Of Our Fathers with my parents (which was my dad's gift from me and actually not as bad as I thought it would be).
Now I will probably go smoke a cigarette and then watch SNL with Forest Whitaker and (fuck yah) Keith Urban.

I've been writing songs like crazy recently.
Actually, more lyrics to existing melodies than anything else.
I scribble incessantly.
It's one of my many alluring characteristics.

My mom ordered the reissue of Sebadoh's III for me for Christmas from Amazon.
Though unfortunately, she accidentally ordered the import instead of the US version.
So it didn't even come in until a few weeks ago.
And I just got it yesterday.
It's like my birthday came early this year.
(Two weeks from today, hint hint)

The song below is my favorite thus far.
It deserves your listening to it.

Tomorrow will consist of exchanging my defective TiVo
driving back to the ATL
and then The Grammys!!!!!!

I am seriously so excited.
You have no idea.

For now, I must leave you.
The cigarette. She beckons.

Current mood: hazy and tired

(Drive Carefully, Dear)

12:41AM - Saxophone solo.

So when I saw The Slackers a few months ago with Brad, they played this cover song.
And I really really liked it, but sadly I had no idea what it was called, who originally sang it, or what any of the lyrics were.


Magically, on one of the last two episodes of American Idol (I forget which one)
a fellow sang this song for his audition.

And what was the song????
Cupid by Sam Cooke.

It is so wonderful. The vocal lines are killer.
And the lyrics, though schmaltzy, are in fact very touching and quite fitting for this time of year.

They are:

Now I don't mean to bother you
But I'm in distress
There's danger of me losing
All of my happiness
For I love a girl who doesn't know I exist
And this you can fix

So Cupid, draw back your bow
And let your arrow go
Straight to my lover's heart
For me (and nobody but me)

Cupid, please hear my cry
And let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover's heart
For me

Now Cupid if your arrow makes
A love strong for me
I promise I will love her
Until eternity
I know between the two of us
Her heart we can steal
Help me if you will

So Cupid, draw back your bow
And let your arrow go
Straight to my lover's heart
For me (and nobody but me)

Cupid, please hear my cry
And let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover's heart
For me

I don't know.
I like it a lot a lot.
There is just something about it.
It's nice.

My dad's birthday is on Sunday, but we are celebrating it tomorrow.
I just found out that the Pro Bowl is tomorrow.
Double Exciting!!
The Grammys are on Sunday!
TrIpLe ExCiTiNg!!!


Aaron, Cody, and Vince totally live in the real house on Ash Tree Lane.
Scary! :-0 (This face is definitely screaming.)

That is all.
Carry on.

11:06PM - Best. Song. Ever.

Down in the darkness, I believe
That you will not torment me
Down below again, I will see
That you'll never be with me
Down where I came from the hell
I will never say hello

6:00PM - Time to rock.

12:27AM - My life:

The new Fall Out Boy album rules.
The new Bloc Party album can't be deciphered.
The new Modest Mouse single is off the chain.
The new Clap Your Hands Say Yeah! is downloaded but not loaded.
The new American Idol is forever and always, Amen.

There will be road trips.
There will be comedy.
There will be fudge (or gymnastics).
There will be awkward shows.

But honestly.
I really don't know what else there will be.
If anything.

I hate Statistics and I don't care enough to not hate it.
I want to get my music happening soon.
House Of Leaves controls my every action.

I want to reconnect.
I'm trying my damnedest.
C'mon everyone.
Jump up and jump out.

11:49PM - I'm on your side and we're always right. It's perfect and worth it.

I am just so sad all of the time.
Everything is miserable and I miss everyone.

Things have got to change
or else I don't know what I'll do.

I just feel like this is hopeless
and I can't do anything about it.

Tonight is the first night I couldn't control myself.
I just broke down.

This is going to end badly.

No one will answer my phone calls
and I'm starting to feel like shit about it.

Also, I hate writing papers by Monday.

Also also, I am listening to Underoath
to keep from feeling sad.

But it's not working too well,
I must say.

7:07PM - We stop and then begin again.

Hello journal.
Long time, no see.

Did you miss me?

Expect much soon as everything is in shambles.
Watch me pick up the pieces/try to put them together/fail/throw up.

Is anything for the best?
Will anything ever be ok again?

Stay tuned for this and other developments.

1:41AM - The end of a three weeks of summer.

Every single time that I think that things might be all right,
my life seems to tell me to go to hell.

I have thought of a great invention.
Ask me what it is.

I can't stop chewing my mustache off.
But I'm alive anyway.

5:07PM - Gabe, stand aside. This is REAL news.

Lance Bass just announced that (shocker):
He's gay.



Also, people that I've sent messages to regarding the "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" contest:
Please reply to them.
As silly and probably trivial as you think this might be,
it really really REALLY means a lot to me.
I've never asked most of you for much
so I'd really appreciate it if you would do this for me.
Don't worry. I'll owe you.

And for those of you that don't know what I'm talking about.
If you have a myspace, you'll know soon enough.

Also also,

10:32PM - That's A Tough Cry To Rally Around

Shoes kicking dust, falling apart
Car is waiting for me
To start, walk slow
So as not to pass
The things I'll never know
It's shoulder to air to shoulder
Sunglasses to empty eyes
And potential conversations waived
For thoughts about the signs

While I drive
The miles seem to pass like the daylight
Fading into the west
The beams shining on the lines
Navigator, plot my course
And tell me where to wind up
It is your choice tonight

It's too long to build a bridge
To connect these different sides
And it's too hard to make amends
When opinions collide
What we said and what was done
Are completely at odds
Check the postcards to find out
Just who won

Greatness is all stuffed down inside
Let yourself let it out
Venting is pointless
When what you're mad about
Is likely to surround
It's door to counter to sleeping
Circle to an empty hole
And potential happy lives exchanged
For losing all control

While you lie in bed
What moves swiftly through your mind?
Complacency is different
From contentment, I find
Wake yourself up
To give in now is not the same as "tried"
And you're dying to survive

It's too long to build a bridge
To connect these different sides
And it's too hard to make amends
When opinions collide
What we said and what was done
Are completely at odds
Check the postcards to find out
Just who won

Comparing notes on paper
The highlighted parts are
Different to start

An error in who's favor?
The swallowed prose of my
Ugly failed design

Current mood: working

(Drive Carefully, Dear)

10:24PM - Kill all the humans.

I'm so filled with hate today.
I want to cry but I can't seem to.

I'm dry as a fucking desert.
I just stare off into space.

I must be a fucking robot.

I don't want to be a fucking robot.

Sexy Back is the best song ever. http://www.myspace.com/justintimberlake
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is the best show ever. http://www.myspace.com/sunnyfx

11:05PM - "Frank, congratulations: You're captain of the gang."

Now I know why FX has been pimping the shit out of this show.
It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia is quite possibly the funniest thing on tv right now.
Did anyone else see it tonight?

The Paper Chase were awesome last night.
I got my new AP today and the new album got a 4 out of 5.
So that's good.

It was my lady's birthday today.
Tomorrow I get to go to the fucking tea room
and I am super stoked.
Creme brulee tea shall be in my belly
as well as petits fours.

I am currently obsessed
The American Analog Set,
Heavy Vegetable.

I don't want to write anymore.

P.S. Fuck school and fuck tests.

P.P.S. Fuck bed.

11:20PM - What if I'd just kept sending all of my thoughts to Illinois?

I've kind of got a boner for the new Cursive record.

So Thursday and Bloc Party are selling cars now.

My beard is getting to be really bushy.
I mean, REALLLLLLY bushy.
But I'm not going to shave.
So fuck you, Gillette
You are NOT the best a man can get.

The Royal Tenenbaums was on FX the other day.
I think I want to be Richie for Halloween.
All I'd need is the sunglasses and the sweatbands.
I'm pretty sure that I have an old tennis racket somewhere.

Summer school is fucking ridiculous.
Suck a male camel's dick.

I saw Kerry Graham today.
He is doing well.

If I haven't talked to you in a while
and we used to talk,
call my shit.
I feel like I'm out of touch.

You have to listen to me.
I have this thought.
You have to see this thought.


I've got nothing.

Oh well.

What's up Earth, Wind, and FIRE!!?!?

Do you remember the 21st night of September?
Love was changing the minds of pretenders
While chasing the clouds away

Our hearts were ringing
In the key that our souls were singing
As we danced in the night,
Remember how the stars stole the night away

Ba de ya - say that you remember
Ba de ya - dancing in September
Ba de ya - never was a cloudy day

My thoughts are with you
Holding hands with your heart to see you
Only blue talk and love,
Remember how we knew love was here to stay

Now December found the love that we shared in September
Only blue talk and love,
Remember the true love we share today

Ba de ya - say that you remember
Ba de ya - dancing in September
Ba de ya - never was a cloudy day

Ba de ya - say, do you remember?
Ba de ya - dancing in September
Ba de ya - golden dreams were shiny days

Current mood: This mess o' me.

I am so tired and I still have to shower.
Boo to that
but yay to tomorrow when I get to see my baby baby.
I love you so much, you can't stand it.

I like The Arcade Fire and Wolf Parade.

Not to be right

"Nothing. Don't worry about it."


"Wait, did I say 'I feel like I'm in the forest'?"
"Oh. Because that's what I meant to say."
"Well, what does that mean?"
"Have you never felt like you were in the forest?"
"Why not?"

I'm so tired.
I don't want to do homework.
I have to do homework.
This is my life.
Boo to that aspect.

Band is going well.
We recorded a crappy demo with 2 acoustic guitars and bass and vox and no drums.
You'll probably never hear it.
It's a good song though.
It's called "Discover the Legend of the Dragon".
I'm pretty sure it's gonna be a smash.

I love school most of the time.
I'm going to be a music business major and make millions of dollars.
This excites me.
Music + Money = The Mu$ic Bu$ine$$

My girlfriend is the greatest thing that was ever created by God or man.
She always knows how to make me feel better.
She loves me harder than anyone ever has or will ever love me.
She is beautiful and I get to look at her all the time, which is nice.
I can't wait until Friday. This is the longest week ever and it is not even a solstice.
I seriously can't get enough of this lady.
She continues to give me butterflies when I see her.
I want her here now. Distance is a dish best served never.

I'm still reading Brian Wilson's book.
I'm starting to really hate the rest of The Beach Boys.
Especially Mike Love, that bastard.
I told Brad that if I ever met him in person, I would spit in his face.
I stand by this statement.

I wrote a new song yesterday and finished it today.
Can you say "Post Hardcore Honky-Tonk"?
Good. I hope not.

I don't know anything else.
I mean, I do. I'll probably think of it later.

I need to learn to keep my private life private.
I'm pretty not good at that.

Everything is better than fine.
I love my life right now and everything feels nice.

Curb Your Enthusiasm is my new obsession.
Christmas was good. I got:

and some other things.
If you would like a complete list
please submit a request in writing.

Sarah is still the greatest woman I've ever known and/or loved.
She got me the Promise Ring Time Capsule for Christmas.
It contains:
-The Promise Ring's first demo tape
-A t-shirt from their first tour
-Another shirt
-4 DVD's, each with a different Promise Ring show
-3 posters
-A photo album that The Promise Ring put together themselves and wrote captions for

Needless to say, it is more than likely the greatest gift I have ever received.
It's so fucking sweet. Ask to see it.

I will say "no".
But I'll at least think about it first.

Ok. Time for lunch.

7:32PM - A song.

It's beautiful
To realize that you understand
All the mess that goes on in my head
And when we talk
I finally feel like I've done something right
After years of doubting everything
Old digitized pages
Are reminding me of
The route that I took to get here
And the desk where I wrote down these words
Make me with I was home
Where I could think of something good

Sleep down, get up and out again
And I can't take these brief conversations
Wait until 9:00 so we can speak in time
About our happenings that happened

Remember when
I lived right down the street
Things were much easier then
But now my weeks
Drag on and on with dirty bricks
And collections of hipster kids
Before noon
I know I'm coming over soon
But right now, I just can't stand it
Because the beaches are moving
And I can't do a thing to stop them
So I can get myself on the road

Sleep down, get up and out again
And I can't take these brief conversations
Wait until 9:00 so we can speak in time
About our happenings that happened

And I think it's possible that we deserve ourselves...

Keenan and Sarah
I love you.

7:08PM - I think the shaking stopped, the shaking stohaheeopped!

I'm really glad that Stephen Malkmus thinks that he should do his part
in helping advertise for Sears' Columbus Day Sale.

I don't know why I'm so mad about this.
I would sell out in a second.

Still though. C'mon Malkmus.

Now every time I hear "Phantasies",
all I'll be able to think about is a fat guy
using his leaf blower.


Also, this weekend I am free of the ol' ball and chain (I love you Sarah).
If you live in the Atlanta area or are willing to drive here
and don't think that we hang out enough,
now is your chance.
Call my shit.

Everything is great and it makes me really happy.
School is easy and I'm more than likely going to get into the music school.

I don't really want to make an entry now.
I'll think I'll eat dinner and watch Special Victims Unit.
Of which, I only have two more episodes before I finish out
my second season DVD.

Also sad.

P.S. I am in love with how everyone stares at me when I walk into a classroom because my headphones are not very soundproof on the ear side. It's pretty amazing.
