NYC entry 2
Rain on xmas eve. I'm sick at the present. Fucking undercooked food...Family being torn aart by spending too much time together. Got lost on subway looking for bookstore. Played basketball at Rucker Park in Harlem. Brother freaked ou because he loves streetball and Rucker is the hub of it.

Saw "Movin' Out" tonight. usical w/o words done to all Billy Joel songs. Twas fucking weird, but cool as hell nonetheless. Saw "the Producers" the other night w/ Matthew Broddick(sp?) Ferris Bueller dude. Funny as fuck.

I miss home.

Tarah, we have to sneak out tomorrow night, I'm not kidding. I haven't had a cigarette in oer a week and it's lame. we need to remedy that...

NYC entry 1
Stting in a monstrous Internet Cafe at present. Super cold outside. Too much light. Bums in subway sing xmas songs that they don't know all the words to...humming along. Black Muslims preach Malcom X on 44th St...yell at me when I listen...I'm their repressor...Muslim bum praises Allah at airport underneath freeway on-ramp..fuck yeah. People aren't as mean as expected. It's still cold. Hotel room is too small even for the roaches in the lobby...SOoo many people. Breakdancers in the subway; dancing to Micheal Jackson from a $20 boombox that can't be head over the rush of the crowds. Got a belt buckle that says, "THRASH"..Typical...McDonald's on every corner, always packed...I miss home already...and San Francisco....

...not as cool as I'd hoped, but hey, we're not home yet...

DAMN!!!!!!!!!
So, I think I can safely say that I am one of the few people who has ever had to take an exam while a fight took place at the front of your classroom...

to elaborate...

Sociology. 5th period. 3rd floor annex. An absent Coach Gonda. A guy and a girl.

Okay, for real now... SO we're all just sitting around wqiting to take our exam and these two kids are messing around up front. Just play fighting and shit, but then the girl gets mad and knees the guy where it counts.. In order to stop the fight, boy grabs girl's wrists and attempts to hold her back while girl continues to hit boy. Boy gets fed up with fight and grabs girl around neck and shoves her into projector, knocking teacher's boombox to the ground...Other classmates (not including myself) break fight up, but girl just won't stop! Girl leaves room and sneaks back in when nobody is watching and tries to hit boy again. Boy is about to FUCK HER UP when classmates (again, not including myself) break it up. Coach Gonda comes back and asks why his boombox has fallen. Students laugh and tell teacher. Teacher gives boy a pep talk before he's sent to the office. Yay for lame fights!

Now, for MY all-important take on the situation...
I am caught in the middle of this one. On the one hand, I sympathize with Alex (the girl) because the boy was being a douchebag. However, I also sympathize with Lani (boy) because, really, what can a guy do when a girl comes at you? Hunter Thompson and I discussed this while the fight was giong on about how when a male is caught in a situation like this, he's pretty much fucked. If the guy fights back, then he's an abusive fuck, but if he just stands there, he gets the shit kicked out of him (thrust me, Alex is fucking tough). I also sympathize with Lani because it's not his fault that Alex got mad. She started the fight, knowing that Lani didn't mean to hurt her. However, Lani did take it a little far when he tried to fucking CHOKE Alex...

I dunno, to me, boy/girl fights are a double edged sword.

fighting is fucking LAME...

SO is war, fuck war...(how profound, right? well, fuck you, I'm stoned)

Against Me! is returning to bring back the ROCK. Everyone should hear this band, they are going to change the fucking world! If anyone is interested, I'll be MORE than happy to make any and everyone a tape of all their shit...Just ask and ya shall receive...

There is no god...I don't care what you say, there isn't one. feel free to give me your opinion on this...afterall, that IS the reason I went to all the trouble to get comments on here...


DISCUSS!

Best sentence EVER...or at least of the past 5 minutes...
"I feel like a fool, but I'm drunk so it's cool." -the Rules of Attraction
 
yuck...
So the other day Iggy (kid from school) came over to my house after school and was trying to find a ride home. Well, it didn't work out as planned and he wasn't going to be able to get home til around 6:30, so what do we decide to do? SMOKE SOME FUCKING WEED! Well, we go into my bathroom and get fucking soared...I couldn't feel my face...I promptly threw up though, because the weed was bad. So I find Iggy a quick ride home and throw up for another hour or so then clean up and go to bed, only to wake up with my mom in my room..."It smells like pot in here.Let me look at your eyes. Oh my god, you're stoned!" Well, needless to say I got a good talking to, but didn't get in trouble. My mom remembered ow she used to smoke herb in college and I got her to let me off...Lucky? I think so...

SO, I quit smoking, for good this time though... I know I know I know, we'll see how long it lasts...but hey, at least I'm thinking about it!

Exams are lame, but watching Finding Nemo is english is good! I love those stoner turtles!

Well, I don't have a car and I'm trying to get a job at Bookstar so I can just sit around and read Adbusters without having to steal it...I hope it works out...I need some money...

*for Tarah's eyes only* eventhough I know you'll all read it anyway since it's on here... I bought a pair of tight jeans tonight. Ya know..the ones that you wanted me to buy and said you'd buy for me but never did? Yeah, those jeans. ANyway, I had you in mind the whole time, sappy I know, but hey, we're fucking in LOVE! right? right? aren't we???

Okay, so I'm going to talk to Dr. Winette tomorrow about the recycling thing...I don't see why there'd be any reason why she wouldn't let us do it, but we'll see. Does anyone know where the recycling place is or where there is one of those huge recycling bins that takes regular paper?

that's all for now, I leave for NYC on Saturday morning, I hope to have fun...




fuckin' a *does anyone know what that actually MEANS?*

Okay, so, I just made THE BEST mixtape EVER! No, seriously, I'm fucking impressed. It's got it all, great soundclips, both popular (stuff from Valley Girl *you know, that awesome moview with Nicholas Cage...*) and stuff that I just found lying around on random soundclip tapes that I've accumulated. Fuck, it's so good...

DId I brag enough for ya?
heh...

...fucking pigs..
So, I just got a ticket for going fucking 5 mph over the speed limit. I should have just driven past the fucking cop. He was just standing in the middle of the street waving at me to pull over, I could have so easily just kept driving and gotten away. fucking pigs.. this is my 3rd ticket since I've been driving, goddamn...

I'm reading book right now (well, actually two, but anyway) called "Infinite Jest" by David Foster Wallace. It's about the size of the A section of the Encyclopedia Britannica, but it's the funniest thing I've ever read. It's all about a poor tennis player in the most disfunctional household in literary history in my opinion. It's basically a story questioning entertainment in American culture and why people are so hell-bent on entertainment that doens't last and makes them fucking dumb..among other things. It could basically be an essay if you took out the storyline. It even has it's own set of paranthetical citations and explanations about some of the crazy shit he's talking about in the back of the book! It rules. It really is the funniest book ever...well, his other book, "Interviews with Hideous Men" is funny too. Ream 'em both and be smart. then we can all save the world togehter!

So today Elise got on the announcements and talked about the poor community in Memphis and she's started a food drive to help benefit the aforementioned people. That girl has my fucking respect... I keep meaning to try and get some sort of recycling program for the school together (since the 'environmental' club doesn't do shit, but I keep not doing it...I think, deep down it's because I don't want to get on the announcements and go through all the work and have nobody do anything. Anyone who can do something like a school-wide food drive with a thousand+ apathetic teenagers who are obsessed with sex and who's wearing what is fucking tough...

It's been decided, Zach, Shawn and I are all getting Evil Wizard Eyes tattoos on the underside of our biceps (or my lack of biceps I guess...). Shawn knows some guy who will do it for me for free so I'mna do that sometime in the next couple of months hopefully...



...fuckin' tough...

dumdumdummmmmmm, it's nearly here
SO tomorrow, the rockin' begins. And I can't fucking wait. that's all I have to say about that...

do you ever get a record that is so good that you can't stop listening to it, nor can you control yourself when it's turned up loud enough? Well, that record is the new Against Me! "..as the eternal cowboy" LP. I listened to it for the first time when it first came out (on my fucking birthday!) and I'm not kidding, I fucking cried it was so good. So much emotion, so man dancy grooves, such awesome lyrics and people. Wow, buy this record, please. or find something else that gives you the same sensation that this record gives me. I think everyone needs a record like that...

Last night, Tarah and I snuck out. It was fun as fuck! I went and got her at about midnight and we went to Kinkos and finished up making flyers and folding the political pamphlets around them and were off to CK's. We filled the ashtray and laughed like college kids and I drew Tarah (she looked like Jaba the Hutt...in the drawing that is...) We talked about things that made me happy. Which is always a nice little turn of events.

I'm out of intelligent things to say, but I've been meaning to take some time to post a rant on the sad state of affairs we have here today in our country. It'll happen soon enough, so the two of you who read this,well, I guess 3 now since I just found out Alanna reads it too, either way, i'll post that rant soon enough...

..if these are the last words I ever say, then I'm not ready to die just yet...

now, THAT'S fucking inspiration
fuck you
you call me a hypocrite
but you don't know the half of it
the story that is,
all fucking polite and nice to my face
say how you hate me to my back
-I still hear it
and it still fucking hurts
so fuck you
you call me a hypocrite
if I told you my story maybe you'd understand
but of course, I'm just too busy with my little band
right?
isn't that what you say?
you know, things I say still hold true
because I mean them when I say them, unlike you
fuck it, maybe I am a hypocrite
but I can live with it, why can't you?
there's more to me than a cigarette and a smirk
of all people, I thought you'd be the one to know...
but no,
no
no
NO!
I'm not over this, over you, but I get closer everytime I feel those verbal knives in my back
you put 'em there and I hate it
I hate that they are there, but moreso, I hate that of all people, the one I cared for so deeply...you know the rest...

 
OH SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was just told that two of my favorite bands ever are coming here in February! Let if Burn (the most fucking fun band around, hands down) and Hot Water Music (just too fucking good to be true) will be here and they need an opening band. Guess who that opening band just might be! Evil fucking Wizard Eyes! I'm so excited! OH SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm off to band practice because, in typical Ted Link-affiliated punk band style, we're nowhere close to ready for our show on Saturday. But that's okay because we'll have fun anyway. Everyone Come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

...seriously, you know you want to....
...and have nothing better to do...
