Seriously, this is still here? Straaange. If you need to read this to see what's going on in my life, you're not in the loop...and the loop is definitely where it's at.

I just received my second strike from UD, which means I'm now on deferred suspension until Spring of 2006, which means I can't study abroad in London next winter. Life is now perfect and everything just continues to improve!

It's not a lie if you believe it.
It's no mistake if it's always repeating...

|If you haven't seen it yet, drop whatever it is your doing and go see Sin City...now
The wind rises electric. She's soft and warm and almost weightless. Her perfume is sweet promise that brings tears to my eyes. I tell her that everything will be all right; that I'll save her from whatever she's scared and take her far far away. I tell her that I love her.
The silencer makes a whisper of the gunshot. I hold her close until she's gone. I'll never know what she was running from. I'll cash her check in the morning.

|On An Aeroplane Over the Sea
In three and a half hours, I'll be on an airplane going far far away from this state. Good Riddance to the drama.
These past few months have been hell...
Let's make this work baby.

|Worst. Week. Ever.
I just want to drink all of this away and wake up in a month, with my life put back together...wishful thinking, I know.

|The product of no sleep:
TakeMeHome2night: my favorite band is poison...what's yours?
SmarterChild: Ha. Maybe. What do you think?
TakeMeHome2night: I told you what I though.
SmarterChild: You told me what you? Wow. How's that going?
TakeMeHome2night: my favorite band is poison...and if you're in poison, it's apparently not going so well.
TakeMeHome2night: I mean, yeah, they were phenomanal in the 80's, but once grunge broke in the 90's, the glam metal bands were nowhere to be found. I mean, don't get me wrong, I appreciate what bands like Nirvana and Pearl Jam brought to the table, but I mean, where's the showmanship?
SmarterChild: I'm sorry, I didn't get that.
TakeMeHome2night: this is hopeless.
On a sidenote:
Seal has a greatest hits album. I mean, come on, does Seal really need a greatest hits album. Sixteen songs PLUS a bonus disk. I can't even begin to fathom what other songs are on it. It's probably just Kiss From A Rose 16 times.
I just want finals to be overrr.

|The Indifference of "Good Men"
If I swallowed all of my pride, I’d be choking till the ambulance arrives.
Because NOBODY does it better.
When I close my eyes at night, I fall asleep to the melody of flat lines and fistfights.
Because NOBODY does it better.
I’m the type of boy who drives the tank till it’s empty
And you’re the kind of girl who never knows when she's wrong.
I speak in allegory
And you dream in prose.
But sweetheart, I’m the “X” on the map
That you’ve been searching for.
Please, dig at my insides and save me for a rainy day.
Trust me, I’m worth it.
We’re the walking clichés with the hearts made of gold.
Minimum wage workers with hundred dollar clothes.
|Building My Future Around A Past I'll Never Escape
If you’re planning on leaving,
Make sure you come home.
If you think about running,
Run straight for my arms.
We’ve held it all together.
Gained a little at a time.
We fought this fight together,
And we will till we die.
I screamed your name until my lungs forgot the sound of my voice.
I wrote “I Love You” until it lost all its meaning.
And I’ve been meaning to tell you that I mean what I say.
This love is a coffin…
We will never escape.
It’s not “Where did we go wrong?”
It’s, “When did this become right.”
We’ve been righting the wrongs for so long it’s alright.
So tonight when you’re thinking
“Is he home? Is he safe?”
I’ll be thinking the same thing
Until I’m awake.

|Four more years...
Four more years of this motherfucker. I don't understand how people can be so fucking stupid to vote for that man. He'll be the President until I'm 22. At least I can drink the last two years away.
We're all fucked.

|If you walk away, I'll walk away...
So I haven't really updated this much since I've been at school...
UD has been good to me thusfar. I'm having at good time, and I think I'm doing well in all of my classes. Since I've been down here, I've met some really great people (Nate, Brett, etc.) and I've strengthened my existing friendships as well. I think I made a good choice...I couldn't seeing being this happy anywhere else.
I miss Dennis...even though he ghosts me when he comes up. I understand.
On Friday, I went to possibly one of the greatest concerts in the history of man: Bright Eyes, REM, and Bruce Springsteen at the Wachovia Center. It was by far the greatest event I've ever been to, and probably will ever go to. I went with my Dad, my brother, and Den. Bright Eyes opened up, and played about 6 songs, all of which were unreleased. I didn't mind though, I just sat there and listened to Conor's lyrics...I aspire to be that man. He even won over my dad and brother, and probably most of the middle aged men in his audience.
After Bright Eyes, REM played. I was a little disappointed with them, because they played mostly new stuff, which no one knew. They closed with Man on the Moon though, and Bruce came out and sang it with Michael Stipe, which was beautiful.
Finally, Bruce came on at around 10ish. He opened up with Born in the USA, and went straight into Badlands <3. He played an amazing set. The E Street Band is probably the tightest band, musically, around. In the middle, John Fogerty came out, and played Centerfield, and a few CCR songs. Then Springsteen covered "Because the Night", and Stipe came out to sing. As usual, he closed with Born to Run, and the house lights were turned out. For the encore, they came back and played a few covers, including "What's So Funny About Peace Love and Understading," and Stipe, John Fogerty, Bruce, and Conor were all trading off verses. It was fun to watch Conor drunkenly running around stage and singing, holding his own with icons. He's such a little man. It was such an intense night.
It's sad knowing that my concert experience peaked at age 18.
This is getting lengthy...
So deal with it.
I'm gonna go home Saturday night and get my car...I'm gonna high school around, like the old days, and get away from the Nook for a night. Won't you join me?

|If you've never stared off into the distance, than your laugh is a shame...
I haven't updated this in a while...
Jamie and I's trip to Florida was a good time. It was great seeing my brother and his girlfriend Vita. I can't wait till he comes up again.
Dennis left for school last Friday. Even though Paulie and I are picking him up this Friday for his birthday, I'm still super depressed knowing he's 5 hours away. I hope he ends up having a good time down there, but at the same time I hope he ends up coming back for good.
I move into school in 3 fucking days! I cannot wait. If the last couple weeks of Mario Karting have been any indication of how college will be, it will definitely be the shit.
I got 4 tickets to Bright Eyes/R.E.M/Bruce Srpingsteen.
Yeah, be jealous. Current Mood: disappointed

|Leaving on a jet plane.............%$#
I'm leaving for Florida in 6 and 1/2 hours. I'll be there until next Monday (the 9th?). If you need me, leave a message, because I doubt I'll have my phone on.
No one do anything too fun, because then I'll have to hear a cool story and wish I was there for it.

|Why can't you just be happy?
So, I guess you could say, after a long hiatus, I'm back. But I never really left, nahmean.
My computer finally got fixed, and now I guess I'll now be returning to my useless routine of late-night onlining.
As of this moment, I'm uncharacteristically depressed. I guess staying up late wallowing in my own self-pity doesn't help me much either. I've come to the realization that 60% of me is a shitty person, and the other 40% is genuine asshole. If I've hurt anyone in anyway, I'm sorry.
~On a sidebar, Dennis and I had an hour discussion yesterday about Tell All Your Friends vs. Where You Want to Be.
~When I'm drunk I name my Top 5 friends.
~I can't wait to go to college and be on my own.
~I have no idea what I want to do with my life.
~Girlfriends are a full-time job.
Sorry for the long and useless update.________________________

|I feel better when you're near...
I hate talking to people I don't like, and pretending that I like/can tolerate them. From now, no more of that.
I started taking Accutane yesterday, for my acne. The good news is, my face will be clear in a couple months. But it has mad crazy side effects, like depression, sleep loss, possible suicide, etc. etc. So if I snap and go on a killing spree, please be understanding.
Show Saturday- come and catch us for the last time for a few months in Delaware. The show is at Calvary. After this one, I think we'll be taking some time off, to write new songs, and finish recording the EP. Unless of course we play the gatsby show (fingers crossed.) I think the named we've decided for the ep will be "Heavy is the head that wears the crown..." All me on that one.
Two and a half months of school left baby.
School Ties is an awesome movie by the way.
p.s.- I took the comments thing off. Why you ask? Because I fucking can.

|It's be a while...
Today we went to the seminary. It was mad fun. That one kid freaked me the fuck out though.
In other news, my Gatsby dvd came in the mail Tuesday, and it's lovely. I ordered my SG on Saturday, and although they said 2-3 days shipping, it says it'll be here Friday.
Everyone come to our show Saturday so you can hear us play the same set we've been playing since October! We need to write new stuff. Everything that I've been churning out has a slight gatsby influence, so we'll see how that boils over.
Till next time...fuck off.
