the ACTUAL weekend...
Okay, so last night I snuck out..again..as always, but there was one difference this time around: I got caught...Tis right, I'm on my way to wherever it was I was going (I hadn't yet decided) when I get a phone call from my mama. Well, I went home, ready to die, but here's the twist if that wasn't enough of one (Which it probably wasn't. I mean, seriously, who HASN'T gotten caught sneaking out...), I wasn't punished! All I had to do was get up the next morning and go to church and play a boardgame with my family. Whatever, tis fine with me.
now, as for the rest of the weekend might you ask? well....
weed, Evil Wizard Eyes, long tired talk with Tarah, ate donuts while I was barely awake, didn't remember it afterward. That's all I can remember at the present...
Oh YEAH! David Sparks played "Hey Ya" on an acoustic guitar at the Caravan open mic night, twas glorious!
NOW, I'm done...

too fucked up to remember..
Okay, so it seems like there should be a ton of stuff for me to be posting about, but to tell you the truth, I can't remember much of what's happened in the past few days. All I remember is that I got caught smoking, stenciled with Tarah, almost fell asleep with a bunch of people at some guys house who's in my homeroom, and smoked a cigarette in Gaby's bedroom. I'll keep thinking and get back to ya.

I hate this fucking town and everyone (well, almost everyone) in it...
Okay, I just got home from seeing the best band in Memphis play. THat band is Akasha. There were 8 people there. And what's more is that it was a benefit for the School of Americas (read: Assassins) protests. Fuck! When something of actual substance happens, nobody comes because they can't kickbox. fuck kids, they'll all be gone in 6 months anyway. I just hate how if it's a bad metalcore band then 150 people will show up, but when it's an actually talented band that has something to sing about, they are lucky to get anybody but their boy/girlfriends to show up for them.
Like about a month ago, this band from France came thruogh and they were fucking awwwesome, but nobody was there. I was maybe 6 people and myself dancing like maniacs. Again I say I hate this fucking town and everyone (well, almost everyone) in it...

evil and wizards both have eyes (lame)
Today I was super incredibly tired at school, but that's fine because I just sang Cure and Against Me! songs to stay awake...
So, a bunch of people have asked me to make tapes for them lately. Possibly 6 people asked for them today alone. I'm so glad people are semi-interested in it...
I didn't get to bed last night until about 4. I was up making goddamn tapes and trying to decide whether or not to cut my hair. I decided against it...
Today in Sociology, Jenny gave me this tape of a whole bunch of B-sides by The Cure that can't be found anywhere anymore for under $100. I flipped out!
Today at practice, I got a red copy of the new Bury the Living LP limited to 100 copies. That thing'll be worth a pretty penny in a couple years. I know, I just said a pretty penny, but hey, fuck you.
that's right, fuck you!

So, last night I went and saw Bury the Living and it ruled.
I had band practice today and it ruled as well.
I saw the Exorcist last night and it was scary. I wanted to die. I didnt' sleep at all..
short post. done.

the perfect end to a semi-decent week
Okay, so yesterday I had to go to work, which always sucks, but after we closed about 20 people showed up and we all just hung out inside the store and I didn't clock out til an hour after we closed, so I made an extra $6. hehe, take THAT capitalist pigs...
After that, I went and bought THE FIRE THEFT cd, which is the members of Sunny Day Real Estate after they gott back together. It's good, buy it.
I went to Philip J's house and we went bowling until maybe 3 am. Then we went to WaffleHouse and ate wayy too much.
They were tired so they went home and I went over to Cat's new house and woke her up. We stayed up til maybe 6:30 just talking. It was much needed on my part. that girl fucking rules.
Well, I'm off to band practice then that show,.

back dat ass up!
Screwy114: i write smart lyrics, not shit about drinking expensive champagne and hittin fat booty
Spartan11586: tha's going on my profile.
Screwy114: haha, cool
Screwy114: i hate it when every song on the radio is now about "tearin da club up"
wow... Shaleen is great
tears of joy and hatred...frustration and sorrow
Okay, so I just got done crying. Now, before you freak out and tell me to feel better or whatever just hear me out.
I cried because I just bought the new Against Me! LP. I cried because it's the most emotional and best record I've ever heard. By far. Easily. No contest.
Before I bought it the guy at Last Chance -he's told me his name maybe 50 times and I can never remember- played it for me. I already knew most of the songs from hearing them when they came on tour, but damn...I'll be damned if the both of us didn't literally dance ALL OVER THE STORE. It was great. People were looking at us all weird-like (made up word, biatch). I couldn't wipe the smile off my face until I got to Linton's house, and even then, it wasn't gone long because we listened to it again there.
All in all, it was a great way to set off a totally shitty day at school. Seriously, lately, whenever I'm at school I really just want to kill myself. I hate 98% of the people there, the people I do like still suck for the most part, the people I really like don't give a shit about me for the most part. whatever, fuck it. one more year, right? Right? Let's hope.
Bury the Living and That Was Then This Is Now on Saturday. I'm excited, should be fun. Let's hope it is at least. The date for the new zine I'm writing for is going better than expected.
not a good way to end a post, but hey, this is my fucking blog so I'll stop when I'm fucking ready, which is now...
kill me please!

lonely pity party and a Crow 7"
Crow is a punk band. they are good.
The members of the Lost SOunds are arrogant assholes. They really are.
I haven't gotten a meaningful hug in a loooooong time. Nothing more than a, "HI, how are ya?" it sucks. I'm lonely. I hate it. with a passion.

g-d I love this Al GOre at the present...
Yesterday, former Vice President Al Gore spoke to a packed audience of almost 3,000 MoveOn supporters about the Bush administration's attacks on our basic freedoms. Not mincing words, Mr. Gore said,
"I want to challenge the Bush Administration’s implicit assumption that we have to give up many of our traditional freedoms in order to be safe from terrorists.
Because it is simply not true.
In fact, in my opinion, it makes no more sense to launch an assault on our civil liberties as the best way to get at terrorists than it did to launch an invasion of Iraq as the best way to get at Osama Bin Laden.
In both cases, the Administration has attacked the wrong target.
In both cases they have recklessly put our country in grave and unnecessary danger, while avoiding and neglecting obvious and much more important challenges that would actually help to protect the country.
In both cases, the administration has fostered false impressions and misled the nation with superficial, emotional and manipulative presentations that are not worthy of American Democracy.
In both cases they have exploited public fears for partisan political gain and postured themselves as bold defenders of our country while actually weakening not strengthening America."
...and we laughed with tears in our eyes
So, last night I finally got to see FINDING NEMO with a couple friends. Never in my life have I laughed so hard at a Disney movie. I LOVED IT!
After watching the greatest movie of the past 2 years (not including 28 Days Later), we just sat at Emily's house until about 12:30 and talked about nothing. It was nice and I needed it.
I went up to Last Chance yesterday and blew $75 on vinyl. $75! WHat was I thinking! Oh yeah, I was thinking, "Eh, who cares? I'll make this money back and then some on Tuesday. WHEN I GET PAID AGAIN!" G-d. I can't believe that I'm finally the one who has money instead of everyone else.
I've got to go to work, but I've got a story about Coach Ghanda (sp?), my sociology class, and Affirmative Action to tell later. It reaffirmed the fact that I am in love with the standard program at WSHS and I encorage everyone to stop making good grades and aspire to be with me in them.
take my life, please

Northerner talk: "are you on the outs with the 'rents right now?" huh?
Okay everyone, welcome back from my long break. I apologize to the 3 of you for stopping the mighty blogage, but yeah, I'm back and that was a dumb sentence. 3, 2, 1....GO!
Okay, so today, I got up and rode my bike to work at around 3 (biking, fuck yeah!). I work at Romeo's Pizza now where I constantly give free food away when the boss isn't watching and hide the new cases of beer to piss him off. Back to the story...The night at work was nice and slow -the way I like it- sop I was able to get out of there by 9. The boss, Mr. Wills, was drunk as fuck tonight andI love him drunk. He's a jerkoff sober, but funny and awwwesome when wasted. Anyway, we're cleaning up and laughing at customers, whcih he never takes part in, and while we're doing it, he throws a dirty towel at me. SO I took a chance at having a little more fun than necessary and threw something back at him, only I threw a pizza pan. Across the kitchen. Missed him and took out 3 huge shelves of other metal pizza pans. Never in my life have I seen Mr. Wills laugh so hard. Wow, I almost got fired. I should have been fired.
ANyway, on to new subjects.
I'm in a couple of new bands now, one is just a joke rock band with some of the guys from Soul Is Cheap Recs, the other is just a super fast, dancy punk band. I hoep everything keeps going well with them.
I started taking pictures again, which reminds me, I need to get all those rolls of film developed. I need to get Tarah to show me how to make a functional darkroom so I can stop spending so much money on film.
Girls are dumb, I don't care what you say they are.
So, I'm pretty fucking rich lately, I get paid 120.oo every week at work. That's more than, than, than even becca used to make! hehehe.
Chuck Palahniuk is too good, read his books.
Yep, still bloggin'
My ixtape distro is goin' strong as of late. It's gotten to the point where about 4 people in Philly, MYC, and New Jersey send me tapes to trade too. It's pretty cool.
Okay, well, that's about it fgor now, I'll post again sometime in the near future, but until that time arises, I'll be listening to Morrissey and writing.
does anyone wish to help me get comments on here so the 3 of you who read this can post?
