- Morrissey "Years of Refusal"
- Dead Swans "Sleepwalkers"
- The Pains of Being Pure at Heart "The Pains of Being Pure at Heart"
- This Time Next Year "Road Maps & Heart Attacks"

I just realized this is my first update since Nov 2nd.  Been thinking about making the switch to a blog/tumblr/whatever, but I don't feel I have much to say to the internet anymore thats more than 140 characters at a time.

2010 will see me going back to and hopefully finishing school.  Other than that, who knows.  Just hope whatever it is is better than '09.

 A few pictures from Grimes' going away picnic:






On a completely unrelated note, this song will always remind me of something:

1:31 pm - Here's lookin at ya kid
 So glad they played this last night  Shit choked me the fuck up

You can tell Gayle, if she calls,
That I'm famous now for all of these rock and roll songs.
And even if that's a lie, she should've given me a try.
When were kids on the field of the first day of school.
I would've been her fool.
And I would've sang out her name in those old high school halls.
You tell that to Gayle, if she calls.

And you can tell Jane, if she writes, 
That I'm drunk off all these stars and all these crazy Hollywood nights.
That's total deceit, but she should've married me.
And tell her I spent every night of my youth on the floor, 
Bleeding out from all these wounds.
I would've gotten her a ride out of that town she despised.
You tell that to Janey, if she writes.

But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
That will cut you to ribbons sometimes.
And all you can do is just wait by the moon
And bleed if it's what she says you oughta do.

You remind Anna, if she asks why, 
That a thief stole my heart while she was making up her mind.
I heard she lives in Brooklyn with the cool, 
Goes crazy over that New York scene on 7th Avenue.
But I used to wait at the diner, a million nights without her, 
Praying she won't cancel again tonight.
And the waiter served my coffee with a consolation sigh.
You remind Anna, if she asks why.

You know it's hard to tell you this.
Oh it's hard to tell you this.
Here's looking at you, Kid.

1:08 pm - Today is many days
 Today is edge day.  A day that celebrates the day a mediocre straight edge band played a last show.  Nevertheless, I'm proud to be straight edge, so I guess edge day is cool.  Today is also "Sweetest Day", a worthless Hallmark holiday that is the Autumn version of Valentine's Day.

6 years ago on Sweetest Day, 2*Sweet played our very first show ever in a gymnasium in Downers Grove.  Kinda crazy right?  6 years ago.  It was a good night, and I never would've guessed where that one night would've eventually lead me.

Tonight on Sweetest/Edge day 2009, my band Left Hand Path is playing a show for the first time in almost three years with Death Threat, Merauder, and The Cro-Mags.  The show is being put on by my friend and ex-roommate Jim Grimes and I am very grateful to be able to be a part of it and to be able to play with one of the greatest hardcore bands of all time.  

Maybe I'll update again in a few months the next time I'm feeling nostalgic.

4:55 pm - Distance ripped us farther and farther and farther away
 I don't post on here all too often.  No real reason, just don't have much I feel like sharing with the livejournal world.  I update this a lot though, so if you're interested in what I'm thinking at any given time, do it up.  Lately I've been way up and way down.  My brain feels like a fucking minefield most of the time.  I need to take (prescribed) pills everyday so I'm not a complete emotional wreck.  I feel they've made me much more apathetic to everything, and I haven't decided if it's a totally great thing or a completely terrible thing.  I'm missing a handful of people a great deal, while at the same time I can't be happier with those I have.  I feel anxious a lot, both the good and bad types of anxiety.  I feel bored a lot of the time.  For the first time in almost 10 years I'm not involved in any kind of (kinda) serious band.  I just work, hang out (sometimes), and watch movies in my room.  But I mean don't get me wrong, I'm not a complete mess.  I have my moments of feeling good, and when I do its great.  It's kinda like this guy Morrissey once wrote, "There are brighter sides to life and I should know because I've seen them, but not very often".

I'm seeing The Jealous Sound on the 24th, so that will be awesome.  I want to go on tour again.  Pumpkin spice lattes.  My new favorite website.

Where do you go when I'm around

 Just posting to document that I had my first pumpkin spice latte of the season today.  I was so happy that I teared up upon taking the first sip, then proceeded to call a bunch of my friends to tell them about it.

10:41 pm - Cities aren't a way to cure a disease
So tomorrow I leave for tour.  I will be out with a band of friends called Fireworks for 19 or so days.  I expect it to be a blast and a welcome escape from reality and real life problems.  So many sweet dudes are gonna be on this tour.  If you live in or near any of these places, come hang out and bring me hazelnut soy lattes.  Chicago friends should come to metro on Thursday.

The new Dead Swans record leaked and I very much love it.  Dude's voice sounds tragic.

10:26 pm - Feels Like Home
 Recently we recorded a new Sister Cities song.  You can read about it below and listen to it by clicking the link below the picture.



'Feels Like Home'
Cycle keeps repeating, heavy hearts are barely beating
when if only you were lonely too we could relish in this feeling
but I'm wasted on brown eyes that leave,
hand in hand with misery, I try to hide it all but I wear it on my sleeve
so here we fall again, a sad start to a bitter end
I'm not the type to beg you 'please'
trying to stand but I'm weak in the knees
so sorry, I failed you
my eyes have dried enough to see you've already washed your hands of me
