BSoK / Pirates

Had a good Black Sleep practice tonight, invigorating me on the band once again. We wrote a song in one shot and began brainstorming for a short tour this Summer. The frustrations of getting the CD released are finally behind me as I finally came up with a design that everyone would agree on. Though CDs are basically useless now, the band will have copies available within a few weeks with the hopes of someone soon after being interested enough to release it on wax.

Is anyone else amazed that there's still pirates...on boats?

The Marked Men

I can't stop listening to these albums by The Marked Men (and neither should you):

Fix My Brain

4 luni, 3 saptamâni si 2 zile

Spent the afternoon helping Taylor finish a room in his basement by installing the electrical stuff.

Ended up falling asleep during the first 20 minutes of 4 luni, 3 saptamâni si 2 zile (Four Months, Three Weeks And Two Days). Woke up wide awake around 11:30 and restarted the movie. It ended up being really good. The whole thing had a really dry creep to it.

Format Change

In an effort to avoid large lulls of inactivity, I'm going to start making (semi) daily entries shorter in length in a more un-filtered, stream of consciousness type manner, rather than sinking large amounts of time into long winded ramblings. Though those may still appear, this will be more of a point form execution of thoughts, opinions, experiences and observations delivered according my current mood. The result, I believe will be a more accurate account of my time and place at that moment that I can later look back on.

So here goes...

I struggled to get up at 4:00 pm this afternoon after a draining night shift at Cherry Creek Mall (where the company I work for is replacing the sound system).

Arrived at school to take a test I was unprepared for, but due to the close proximity of summer break, didn't fucking care.

Though I cheated and looked at a neighbors test on a few questions, I managed to pull off a perfect score. If our grades actually mattered at all as to whether we passed, I'd be proud of my score or ashamed of my cheating, depending on the circumstance.
To kill time while waiting for when we're allowed to leave class, I did as I usually do - followed the bread crumbs of wikipedia articles reading on subjects and moving on according the links within each one. I tried to ignore the constant chuckles of the cro-magnon men who happen to be my classmates while they watched porn on a PSP six feet away.

I found myseld intensely reading GG Allin's biography and manifesto. This put me in a mood where I continued on to read about famous murderers, specifically Chapman and Berkowitz, which poured over into where I arrived back at work for the night and ignored my duties to read Wikipedia on my phone. Furthering my mood to intrude on eclectic personalities, I started listening to obscure black metal.

After that I wished I had a home recording setup so I could capture my own musical abilities in a strange diary fashion and hope it intrigued someone enough to want to analyze me and what I had to say.

I'm a contributor to Lucid Media now. Since you know I have extremely distinguished musical tastes, it's no surprise that you're rushing over there to download everything I tell you to.
