update [19 Jun 2007|08:04pm]
next week starts another whirlwind of music tomfoolery and travel. pitchfork music festival, decemberists, sparta, straylight run, bowling for soup (hahahaha), morrissey (!!!!), possibly the format, and... lots of other crap.

anyone want to be my sugar daddy and take me to austin city limits in september for my birthday?

if you like bands that bring the rock a little more, you should definitely check out operator. their song "soulcrusher" is awesome!

i love powerspace, but i know a lot of you guys might be out of the loop when it comes to this band. heads up: at fbr plus you can download their EP houston, we have a party for free. totally sweet, right?


click and go. their banner's in the lower right hand corner, i think--just click over there and your download should start.

All I've done since Thursday is eat, graduate from college, hang out at an 80s bar, eat, and sprawl on the couch with 3 other girls while watching Amanda Bynes pretend to be a dude.

Tomorrow is shaping up to be more sprawling, more eating and probably more spontaneous shouts of, "I NEVER HAVE TO GO TO SCHOOL AGAIN. I COULD DO THIS FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE IF I WANTED." (Of course, I should mention that I think I've already gained 2 pounds from the past weekend alone. Oh, well. All good things must end.)

Besides, this coming week kicks off a killer summer. Wednesday is promo at a +44 signing, then not going to the HCT because while I do enjoy every single band performing, I don't enjoy amphitheater shows unless they're for, like, White Snake. Journey. Perhaps AC/DC. (And I didn't have the money to throw down, I'll be honest. I just bought tickets for PMF in Chicago.) Plus, I can't make it anyway. It gets out too late and I have to be at the club prepping/postering/whatevering for another certain band's afterparty before doors open. I already bought strong tape. None of that weak masking tape like the last two shows.

Friday an old friend from high school gets into town to escort me to a wedding. Said wedding is on Saturday. After that I'm heading back down to my hometown to hang with some of the old high school crowd for a party--I haven't seen these kids in years. Like, half a decade. I'm horrible at staying in touch. Then there's my grad party. Then I'm moving. SURPRISE!

Blah, I'm tired just reading that. Later in June there's working promo at a festival for a sweet metal band...and even more shows after that. July equals Morrissey, Chicago, Pitchfork, and possibly the Decemberists, depending on how Warped works out. BFF hangs in Florida. Myrtle Beach in August. By Fall I start looking for a job, unless one falls on my lap before then.

gotta cut him up, boy [29 Apr 2007|03:36pm]
ply her heart with gold and silver.

i have a horrible sinus infection. it's causing my entire head to be stuffed up and all i want to do is stay in bed, listening to colin meloy. this is not unlike most sundays, but today involves tissues and pills and misery. what's extra fun is that i realized i was getting sick while i was at the paramore/the almost/this prov/love arcade show on thursday. oh yes, slumped over a table near the bar upstairs, struggling to look interested in the music is always awesome. i enjoyed watching love arcade, i just... got more sick as the night went on.

anyway, long story short, being cranky and sick is excellent motivation to get back home by 12:30am. usually i'm rolling in after 2 or 3am. there was very little socializing, i got my work done, took the photographs i needed, talked to the kids, said adios to the staff and crew and got out of there. my friend was impressed. last time it was rainy and cold and i kept hanging out with a victory records dude. she was not pleased.

we didn't even stop at wawa on our way home. proof i was sick.

man, this was way too much time spent on a story explaining how i was sick. lame.

music i'm currently into:
modest mouse - we were dead before the ship even sank
manchester orchestra - i'm like a virgin losing a child
the decemberists "the culling of the fold" - the crane wife bsides
love arcade "party"
new paramore
old saves the day
neutral milk hotel. all of it.

i made a killer thai sesame rice noodle with stir fried tofu thing last night, despite being deathly ill. this is a huge accomplishment, considering that i rarely cook. it was awesome and i'm planning on eating it for dinner again. i don't really like cooking meat, because i'm never sure when it's done, but tofu? i'm ace at it. plus, i like it better. if it weren't for sushi and turkey sandwiches i'd really go vegetarian, but... turkey sandwiches! sushi! i'm japanese. cut me some slack.

okay, i have to take more antibiotics. excuse me while i contribute to creating superbacteria and ubervirus.

hey must be the money [11 Apr 2007|04:29pm]
you know, i think nelly's album country grammar really influenced me at an age i shouldn't have been listening to it. i say this only because i mentally say "HEY MUST BE THE MONEY" far too often than is appropriate.

then again, i mentally say a lot of things that aren't too appropriate. eh, the trials of being me, right?

so what's new in the world of me: i'm struggling to finish this semester of school--less than a month, then final exams. scary stuff there. i have massive papers and exams everywhere i turn, yet here i am, hanging out on the internet instead of writing a research paper about product placement in hip hop videos. (there's nothing like a ten page research paper to suck the fun out of watching a jay-z video.)

on sunday i'm going to see the alternative press tour--circa survive, cute is what we aim for, envy on the coast and... another band. crap. this is what happens when there are a million bands on the bill, i can't remember who's playing. plus by the time the headliner plays i'm cranky and tired of hanging out. anyway, you all go out to see the tour if you get the chance. i'm excited. if you're at the norfolk date, i'll be out there early promoting. say hi!

speaking of tours, warped tour is coming up fairly quickly. i need to figure out how that's going to work out for me. i'm not sure if i'll just be hitting a date as a. uh. spectator? haha. or going to multiple dates because i'm working. obviously, i want to work it, if only because i'd like to be able to put down "worked warped tour for blah blah" on my resume. (i know, that doesn't seem that impressive, but i really don't have much. and this fall i need to start sending out resumes. again, scary stuff.) so, help a sister out.

anyway. i'm going to finish my jelly sandwich (made with the heels of the loaf of bread--i'm out of easy to make food in this house, i don't feel like cooking and i don't feel like spending money on groceries) and think about getting ready to go to some music thing on campus.

a brief update of the musical nature:

i saw cobra starship last month. if you aren't listening to them, you should be. they're a great party-dance band (plus they sang that snakes on a plane song from last summer. you know you love it.) the lead singer is actually the dude from midtown, if that makes a difference to you. they put on an awesome show, great energy.

last night? the decemberists. colin meloy. possibly one of the best shows ever. i have no words.

by the way, paramore (one of my favs) is playing soon in my area. i'm super excited. if you want to check out a live performance of theirs, go here:Collapse )

sights and sneezes [03 Jan 2007|01:57am]
allegedly i'm reading john irving's a widow for a year, but while i'm enjoying the book, it's slow going. this could be because i'm spending time on the internet telling you all i'm reading john irving's a widow for a year instead of actually, you know, reading it.

i can hear my cat snoring in my closet and i'm all the way over on my bed. it's cute times.

tomorrow i'm on a hunt for a calendar/planner, various things from banana republic, a few surprises from sally's beauty supply, a plastic tub for my mom, and definitely a soy peppermint mocha at some point. maybe some cheaps books, if i can find them, too.

the great gatsby by f. scott fitzgerald [31 Dec 2006|08:46pm]
"Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter -- tomorrow we will run faster, stretch our arms out further -- and one fine morning --

So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past."

there will never be another day in 2006.
and i'm not sure i mind.

merry christmas [25 Dec 2006|03:29am]
Just once I knew what life was for.
In Boston, quite suddenly, I understood;
walked there along the Charles River,
watched the lights copying themselves,
all neoned and strobe-hearted, opening
their mouths as wide as opera singers;
counted the stars, my little campaigners,
my scar daisies, and knew that I walked my love
on the night green side of it and cried
my heart to the eastbound cars and cried
my heart to the westbound cars and took
my truth across a small humped bridge
and hurried my truth, the charm of it, home
and hoarded these constants into morning
only to find them gone.

-Anne Sexton

we finally put up the christmas tree here. it's festive, i suppose. i went out to buy a gift for my father from my mom, spent two hours trying on shoes instead. finally got a forty dollar waffle iron once i got annoyed by all the pushy middle-aged women around me. i understand the allure of online shopping, but i'm far too much of a tactile person to devote my holiday shopping to it entirely. besides, i couldn't get distracted by shoe sales for two hours if i did it online.

This is the story of America. Everybody's doing what they think they're supposed to do.

haha, new lj? [22 Dec 2006|02:29am]
i'm mostly using this journal to post in communities right now, so don't be alarmed there's not a ton of posts.

of course, i can never shut up, so i'm sure i'll be going back on my word and shooting my mouth off here in no time. so the story goes, right?
