okay, so i went to a show tonight for the first time in about a year, and surprisingly it wasn't a complete waste of my time. here's a quick recap of the bands that played and what i thought of them personally.
Abby Normal: interesting, sort of blink-182ish but not really, i liked them enough to listen to all of their songs.
Broke: annoyingly loud, stupid looking pierced nose vocalist. insane bass player who almost smacked said vocalist in the back of the head with his bass.
Slender Means: by far the best of the four bands, a very interesting mix of styles, 2 guitarists, a bassist, a keyboardist, and a drummer. very good vocals by both guitarists, very harmonic.
Side Dish: Ska-core band, i can't give a fair review seeing as i left after the second song, which was a cover of "Don't Turn Away" (not sure what band did it originally)
all in all it was a fairly okay show, 2 out of the 4 bands impressed me, which is pretty damn good seeing as i'm so very critical of local bands. the annoying thing is that whenever the bands would tell us to buy their stuff they would say "merch" instead of just saying "merchandise" or "buy our shit" it was really stupid.
okay, other than the show i've just been working on my GED, i should have it in time to start school this upcomming semester. i've also been playing WoW like there's no tomorrow. anyhow, rock on and all that good stuff.

well in keeping with the trend of strange dreams I've been having lately I had a couple more last night. it's about the 5th time in the last few weeks that I've dreamed about my hair being long.....is it a sign from beyond that my hair is meant to be long? my other dream was beyond strange, it was about this girl that I used to know. the really strange part about it is that I don't think I've even thought about this girl, letalone seen her in the past 3 years or so. in fact, I remember the last time I talked to her. if I remember correctly it was about a week after halloween a few years ago. my good friend matt and i were at the grocery store up the street from my old house buying snackage for an all night game session...or something of that sort. this girl insisted that she had seen me being arrested at a party the week before, she also insisted that I did drugs and would not hear otherwise despite the fact that I've never done a drug in my life unless it was prescribed to me by a doctor. anyhow this dream I had was very odd, I can't remember exactly what it was about but I remember seeing my old elementary school in it. anyway, that's it for now, I'm off to try and escape the real world and my very real depression.

well, i've been busy playing World Of Warcraft for the past week or so, hence the lack of updates. nothing really exciting happening anyway, looking for a job, working on my GED. I'll probably start college in the fall. anyhow that's just about it, just thought i would let everyone know that i'm still alive.
