-i've been going through a lot of old photographs and my old sketchbooks lately. there was a time before i felt so disconnected and its all there in those books and photos. i'm working on reclaiming that in my life.
-hate the new gmail. just saying.
-holy 15 degrees!
-i broke out the turntable this morning and spun one of my all time favorite LPs, the "instrument" soundtrack by fugazi. with the morning sunlight streaming in the window, it made for a pretty awesome listen.

i mentioned the lunachicks a post or two ago and it got my mind thinking about the time i saw them in 1999. it was the only time i saw them but it was a kick ass show and i got to meet them and hang out for a little bit which was totally fucking rad. anyway i took pics and though they aren't the greatest pics i've ever taken (if memory serves correctly i didn't use an SLR) i decided to dig up the negatives and get them reprinted. there were a few i liked and here they are. now hopefully they'll reunite and i can see them play again. here's hoping. on a side note, the lunachicks were the first heavily tattooed women i saw when i was younger and they mde me start to think about getting tattooed myself. now i'm heavily tattooed and get looks from youngins. haha

death from above 1979-too much love [i fucking love this song. i'm so glad dfa1979 is back together and doing new shit. word is that there will be new material sometime in the middle of this year. i def want to go see them and have my fucking ass rocked right off. i'm a total sucker for 2 piece bands and also bands with lead singer/drummers i tried that shit some years back in  a project i was doing but number 1 its hard and number 2 i can't fucking sing! haha. i also played in a 2piece band for years just bass and drums and i fucking loved that dynamic. anyway i love this shit and can't wait for more]

turn it out[this is a really good fan video with some badass old school tin toys]

hearts down


i gave it all to you.

-finally listened to the latest joe lally (bassist of fugazi) solo record "why should i get used to it" and its seriously good. his best solo recording to date. it was recorded in italy in 2010 and released earlier this year and i was a little behind the times getting to listen to it. "nothing to lose" is prob my fav track of the bunch, its a short bouncy number which is a nice break from some of the more serious songs he's laid down. when he comes over to the states i would love to see him live; hopefully that can happen sometime this year.
-i need a 2012 calendar. i should get on that shit.
-on new years eve i was reminded of what a great record the first weezer album is. its too bad their later output wasn't at the same level,  for me they fell off after "pinkerton" but whateves. to this day i still credit them with being the first rock band i really got heavily into and the reason why i'm in a band today (though the resaon why i play drums is "live through this" era hole). i bought that cd in october of 1994 and played it non stop for months. thats some good shit.
-i'm loving the fact that i can hook my laptop up to my new tv. hot shit.
-i dont think i fully undertand the timelone layout on facebook...i'm still debating if i should change my profile to that or not. such hard choices in life! haha
-i officially want to break up with overnight. there i said it.

rahim-enduring love [what ever happened to this band? i started listening to them in 2006 and saw them play that summer-they were really good-but then i never really heard much of them again. it seems like they just stopped playing which sucks because they really had some good shit going. this is one of my favorite songs by them and kind of fitting with the title of this post. the record this song comes from "ideal lives" is a really good disc too. def worth looking up]
