|This time two years ago...
My life was pretty fucking good.
I had a job where I made a lot more money than I needed.
My car was running great.
I was well on my way to being a wholesome, happy guy, getting married or whatever. Not that worried about all that jazz, but it seemed enevitable.
Now, I'm not really sure how I'm going to pay my rent. The just cut hours at work again. I'm looking for a new job, but, apparently something is seriously fucked up in my alignment because my car 2 weeks ago my tires were fine, now they are stripped to the threads.
Luckily, I noticed before a tire popped. Or both.
Fuckitall, I don't even feel like bitching about it.
Life sucks, get a helmet.

|I just got off work and Laura had posted these so I did it too...
I'm such a sheep, but I will comment on them here....
Your Political Profile
Overall: 60% Conservative, 40% Liberal
Social Issues: 25% Conservative, 75% Liberal
Personal Responsibility: 75% Conservative, 25% Liberal
Fiscal Issues: 100% Conservative, 0% Liberal
Ethics: 25% Conservative, 75% Liberal
Defense and Crime: 75% Conservative, 25% Liberal
So, am I liberal or conservative? Libertarian choices did not abound on that poll, but it was still close to accurate results.
American Cities That Best Fit You:
75% Las Vegas
I imagine that they didn't have Phoenix or Albuqurque on there, so those are pretty good choices.
The Keys to Your Heart
You are attracted to those who are unbridled, untrammeled, and free.
In love, you feel the most alive when things are straight-forward, and you're told that you're loved.
You'd like to your lover to think you are stylish and alluring.
You would be forced to break up with someone who was emotional, moody, and difficult to please.
Your ideal relationship is lasting. You want a relationship that looks to the future... one you can grow with.
Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.
You think of marriage as something precious. You'll treasure marriage and treat it as sacred.
In this moment, you think of love as something you can get or discard anytime. You're feeling self centered.
Surprisingly accurate, a little more effeminate than I would have liked, but still an intriguingly close approixmation to how I feel in general. I love on-line quizes, they are so jokey.

|So guys, what do you do when life starts to rule?
I was going stir crazy in Charlotte, because all my friends were being boring and didn't want to hang out with me.
SO I got new friends.
THey are awesome.
I still love my old friends, but new friends are awesome.
I had the greatest night of all nights last night, that involved alcohol women and stories that even the interweb can't handle. Needless to say, I'm feeling a trip to Ri Ra's to totally embarass one chick, especially if she follows through with getting me in free.
MAcadoo's is officially monday night hang out. Food and booze for $8.55 plus tip? AND I HAD ENOUGH TO TAKE HOME AND EAT LATER.
OH MY GOD!
WEdnesday night is Diner night.
Saturday night is Penguin/RiRa's night (maybe this saturday night???).
I wrecked my car, and need to get my credit card reinstated (because it expired) to get it fixed, but I will asap.
I love Charlotte, this is one of the greatest places in t he world.
Tommorrow night, party at Campus Connection, shit loads of booze and people. If I don't make it through the night, I want all of you to know that I love you with all of my heart and I had a great time getting to know you.
I'm even excited about going to work tonight. I need to get my car fixed asap.

|What the fuck does Waggy mean?
Watching your house shrink away in my rear-view mirror
As I drive away
Wishing that I could take back all those words
That meant nothing that I didn't say
To be what you want me to be
But it's so damn hard to keep playing the part
Of the fool, week after week
I think you need some time alone (I think you need some time alone)
You say you want someone to call your own
Open your eyes, you can suck in your pride
You can live your life all on your own
Is this all going to be just another time
That we play this game?
I've tried to convince you that things could be different
But somehow they end up the same
Did you expect from me? What am I supposed to do?
You say that you're starting to feel like you're getting lost
Well, I do, too
I don't wanna live this lie again (I don't wanna live this lie again)
I know I'll get it right but I don't know when
I'll open my eyes, I've got something in side
I'll just jack off in my room until then

|I'm dropping out of college to become a battle rapper
Some of my gems...
Hey look, it's caspar the friendless joke
Fly away, white boy, before you get embarassed
I'll play you like candyland,
You know you'll get beat
And when I'm done with you
I'll give your girlfriend a treat
She loves the sugar
dripping off my candy cane
Step off son,
you can't handle my game.
Hiding in closets, and underneath my sheets?
What the fuck son? That shit is weak.
I know you're scared to face me, but why you gonna haunt?
Cause you wanna see what a real man can flaunt?
Michael Jackson's your thriller,
I'm more like Muhammed Ali
Take your pale ass home,
You should have never stepped to me.
Wait, so, just because you're black
you think you get a free pass
The shit you talk is wack
You're the kid who got picked last
for four square and dodgeball
nevermind that everyone kicked your ass
If you think you can come at me
spitting like a baby
talking shit that is trash
you'd better go back to class
Nah, forget it, you just got schooled.
Caspar was a worthy advesary. However, since he was mostly chumping me, I decline from posting some of his zings.

|So, this is pretty fucked up.
No matter how tired I get, I don't go to sleep until about 4 or 5 in the morning. I stopped bothering to go to bed before that. I get headaches because I'm so tired, but the second I hit the bed, I get restless.
I really need out of Charlotte. I'm getting sucked in.
I had the best times of my life here, easily. Hands down. But, I need to get out, and the city wants me to leave.
I'm going on tour this summer, it's almost a done deal. That sort of almost makes me happy. I think I need it, but I'm worried I wont get it.
I miss hanging out with my friends. Some more than others. But, I'll be gone soon. I don't know if I'll ever be able to come back to Charlotte again.
How can something so liberating be so fucking depressing? Current Mood: discontent

|A Leatherfaced Knapsack....
So unclever ricky.
Canadian Lindsay, if you read this, you like Le Tigre right? They are getting that TKO song played out on Blockbuster TV. I never really listened to them, but that song is really waaay too poppy for me and is annoying as hell. They aren't quite the Riot Grrl group I expected.
In other news, I love rediscovering old bands I used to listen to, but never got into. The latest in the string is Tiltwheel and Leatherface. I don't recommend them to anyone who reads this, because I don't think any of you would like them. They are in a similar vein of Jawbreaker, but much more raw, very rough. Leatherface is like a british political Jawbreaker. But, god, are they amazing or what?
Tiltwheel is really amazing too, very understated music.
I am a pretty big Knapsack fan now too, which has lead me to the Jealous Sound. Either I am maturing, or I am getting wussy, because I really love that pop-synth crap TJS pulls out. I'm so emo. :(
Knapsack and Jealous Sound I recommend to all of you, way more poppy and accesible.
While I'm at it, everyone should check out the Shins too. I'm sure you've heard of them by now, but they might lead you down the path to Scared of Chaka, easily the best garage punk band to come out since the Zombies or MC5. The Shins broke up SoC, as I'm sure I've ranted about on here before.
I just started playing bass in a hardcore punk band. I really don't like the band, but it's more just because I can't stand the singer. But, it's fun to play punk rock, especially when you get to play the bass line.
I'm probably going on tour this summer, but with a band playing my music. Can't wait.
Graduating soon, getting out of Charlotte. Gotta leave this town behind.
Honorable Mention Bands I've been listening to:
Deftones + Far version of Savory

You Are 25 Years Old
Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.
13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.
20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.
30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!
40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.

|I really am out of touch with reality.
Damn, I hate it when I get into a band after they are already broken up. I really hate that so much. I will never get to see Knapsack live, but whatever, at least I can enjoy their records.
I'm thinking about buying the Tiltwheel collection next. I've almost finished the Scared of Chaka collection. I am one album away on 90 Lbs Wuss. Not being rich makes collecting great records hard.
I think someone stole my copy of "Oh! Inverted World," the first shins album. For all you people who don't know who SoC is, but do know the Shins, the original lineup of the shins was half Scared of Chaka, half a band called Flake Music. Because of the success of the Shins, Scared of Chaka broke up. I do not like that very much.
Niners are 9-2. I'm really glad 2004 is over, it may have been the worst year ever. 2003 was a pretty cool year, I'd like to live that one over again.
They cut hours at work, so I may have to find another job asap.
Dating is no fun at all. I forgot how boring most girls are. I was dating a pretty interesting chick for a while, but she was 28 and a school teacher. I've already tried the older girl thing, and it just won't work out.
It's almost like I live alone right now, my roommates are all moving out. They all hate each other, which is weird, because I thought they were all friends. Whatever.
Got the Nirvana Box Set. Def worth the money. I don't even really like Nirvana anymore, but it is worth it. It is totally worth it.
