-----i listen to a lot of music, duh, you already knew that. but there are always those bands i can fall back on and how mean so much, even if i haven't listened to them in a while. you bitches know i love green day and i know its hardly considering "cool" by a lot of people but i don't care. for twenty years, they are a band i have consistently turned to when things didn't make sense or i was sad or i needed to be inspired and they always were there for me no matter what. i'll be listening to them sometimes and i'll just get tears in my eyes and no not when songs like "wake me when september ends," or "good riddance" [i have never particularly cared for this song to be honest] or "21 guns" or any of the overtly emotional ones or bigger hits. i get misty when songs that touch my soul or hold me together come on like "f.o.d," "80" [this song was MASSIVE for me as a teenager, for the epic bassline, as well as being the soundtrack of realizing i liked girls, for the words "80 please keep taking me awaaaaaay," and the fadeout at the end and hanging on to it til the very last second] "tales of another broken home" and "j.a.r" [who doesn't love this one?!] also, i seriously had a moment during "409 in your coffeemaker" the other day, who does that? hahahaha. as you can see i have a love of a lot of the early tracks. i don't know what i would have done had i not had this band when i was younger and i love that i still listen to them and turn to them. i love that as they have grown and the subjects of their songs have matured, so have i. i plan to keep on listening to them for many, many years to come.
-----duuuude, i am seriously turning into a total housewife lately!hahahahahahahahahahahaHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA yes, i just said "housewife" in reference to myself HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! annnnyway, i say this because i live in a tiny aparment [tho my bedroom is the biggest i've ever had] and its crappy and i really let it fall to shambles. i am planning on moving to ny in hopefully 2015 but i still have to be here for now so i decided, no more epic sloppiness for 2014 yo. i want to make this place look nice regardless if its shitty and small, so i have been doing some major deep cleaning and i've actually been liking it! i get overwhelmed quickly with it, which i why i let it get so messy in the first place, so i break it down into manageable chunks though i usually find myself really in the zone once i get going so i end up cleaning more than what i originally intended to. steve is...well...he's a total guy and a major slob so he's not helping much but i told him fine, if he isn't going to help, then he has to pay for the cleaning supplies i need which he agreed to without hesitation! i asked him to get me a swiffer duster the other day and it is sooooooo goooooood. i was like !!!!!!!!! when i was using it and had a total house wifely boner for it! hahahahaha. i'm also using this opportunity to get more art up on the walls, both my own and by other rad people. i have a lot up already, but still a lot of wall space to use and tons of stuff to choose from. i'm excited by this change and i really aim to keep up with it. living like a slob is a thing of the past yo!
-----i love it when i have my ipod in shuffle in the car and a tullycraft song comes on and then
immediately following it a slayer song comes on. aaahmaaazing.
-----a lot of people i grew up with have either just had their first baby or will be soon. makes me feel old. and also very un-accomplished cuz i don't have it together enough to even be in a relationship let alone have a solid foundation [big enough house or sound finances] to be able to even think about having a child. i know i shouldn't beat myself up about it and i know that things happen to different people at different stages in their lives for a reason, but idk...just reminds me of how much more work i have to do til i can consider myself "settled"
-----i like to recycle! yes that's right, i like to recycle. now i know it isn't really a true "activity" in the general sense of the term but i enjoy it never-the-less. mainly cuz i like to see how much i can accumulate before having to put it out. haha. if i'm out somewhere and i have a beverage in a recyclable container i am always a nerd and bring it home with me to make sure it gets recycled. it makes me angry when people don't recycle. really angry. a lot of my neighbors around me don't recycle....grrrrrrrrrrr. like it takes zero effort...or well what, TWO EXTRA MINUTES A WEEK to take the can out to the curb and bring it back in. TWO FRIGGEN MINUTES A WEEK!!!!! shit, seriously!
-----i'd just like to let you all know that in my life, i have had my hands on both a human liver and a lung. hahaha and i wasn't being some ax murderer and chopping someone up! this happened in 2006 when i went to see the body worlds exhibit of plastinated bodies when it was touring the country. it was pretty insane to see all the different bodies and they way they were presented and all the different systems that make us up. i'm not sure that i would ever donate my entire body to something like this but i def want to be an organ donor if i'm healthy enough to do so at the time of my death or if i die unexpectedly at a young enough age. not that i want to kick it early or anything so i hope this isn't going to jinx me. [i totally added that last part out of pure paranoia. hahaha]
-----whenever i see/hear something about kirk cameron all i think to myself is the word "douche" hahaha. i mean, i have nothing nice to say about him or even think about him cuz he's a homophobe who has actively attempted to convert LGBT people to be straight and he continuously spreads hate and lies under the guise of being a "good christian" and all about god. i'm sorry but god doesn't seem to me like the type to hate anyone. i mean most religions talk about "his" [or "her" if you believe that] message being nothing but love and beauty, so spreading hate about certain groups you don't like or agree with in the name of god doesn't seem very consistent with a message of love and it is pretty friggen ugly. idk, that's just me though. maybe kirky boy thinks hate is great and that his image of being a child star will help him get away with it but at the end of that day, he's still just a pompous hateful DOUCHE and come on mr. cameron, no one likes a d-bag!
-----i've started to sell some of my vinyl...i didn't necessarily want to but its about time i downsized a little and also i need some cash. i asked myself, those rage against the machine records i've had sitting on a shelf and haven't touched in over a decade....do i really need them or should i generate some income off of them? i think you can guess what i did! hahaha. its funny cuz yeah like rage a little but idk how i ended up with all of their albums and a limited edition 7inch. hahaha. i mean, some stuff i'm holding onto for now cuz i love it so much, like my green day vinyl and other stuff, but other shit that i don't care that much about is up for grabs. i don't have a complete list right now cuz i'm still going thru stuff, but i'll be posting it on fb what i have.
-----i just saw blue is the warmest color this weekend....wow. just....woah. hahaha. i plan to write about it more at length later. but for now....just remember this....they used fake stunt pussies! hahaha
-----the new warpaint album has been like IMPOSSIBLE to get my hands on! there were like zeeerrrro leaks out there that i could find and now that it is actually out, every time i try to get it on soulseek, it crashes the program. its really weird. i've had that happen once or twice before with different stuff. but i mean, if i have to pay for it, i will. i'm not a completely rotten theeeeeeif! hahaha
-----hey! do you have twitter!?! i know tons of people do and i don't...hahahaha.....but if you do, you should follow rock hudson! @rock_hudson1 for the latest on what we are up to and what shows we have coming for you! i'm thinking about getting my own account too....we'll see!
-----so...i've lost fourteen pounds so far this year! woooooo!!!! yayayayayaaaa!!!!!!
duuuuuuuude!!!! seriously the best xmas gift evvvvverrrrrr!!!! i got this a little after the new year from my friend heidi aka bassist extraordinaire of -ghostmouse- it is freaking ammmmazzzzzingggg!!! it is exactly what it looks like it is, a miniature guitar amp in a pack of cigarettes. yoooooooooo!!!! hahaha. it is made by smokey amps and i have to say, this little sucker sounds hot. it is powered by a 9v battery and you control the volume thru the volume knob on your guitar, and the louder you go, the more gain on it. i love lots of gain so you know i had this baby cranked! haha you can also use it as a head to power a cabinet waaaaay bigger than it is [4, 8 or 16 Ohm speaker cabinet, including a 4x12] which is like whoooaaaaaaaa. i also discovered on their site that it can even be used as a fuzz box if you hook it to the input of another amp. i have yet to try it but seriously WHOAAAA!!!! this little guy is amazing and can do so much. insanity! one of the best gifts i've ever gotten for sure!
okay so my thoughts are scattered at the moment cuz i've been running non-stop for the past week. i got a new job so i've been working again which has been really, really good but i've been focusing on doing a good job there and less on the blog....but i will not let this slide, i promise! i just need to adjust to things again and shit, get myself in a routine and all. and i do have a few things started for this section but they need some more work and i don't feel like finishing them today and half-assing them when i could make them better if i just wait a few days to give it the proper attention. also, this post is long overdue so i'm gonna just not have anything here and go forward in the next post or two. yep!
mackintosh braun made for us [don't say it doesn't matter anymore...this song just gets inside my head and i seriously want to listen to it ten times in a row everytime i hear it. i have yet to explore the rest of their stuff, but if its anything like this track is, i know i won't be disappointed. i will try to remember to report back at a later date about it]
tell me what yooooou think! sound off in the comments!
