Woohoo! Me, Ryan and Kel are seeing Porcupine Tree at the Warfield tonight! I sampled the opener, 3, who sound good musically for the most part - but the singer sounds like he's listened to too much Rush. That's a bad thing (at least for me).
Sunday is Dimmu! Fuck Yeah! More exclamations!
i just bought tickets to the Porcupine Tree show at the warfield. it's friday, may 11th, anyone going? right after i bought the tickets, i was searching for the opener for this show and found out that Dimmu Borgir is playing that Sunday! WTF!? i can't get friday and sunday off! damnit! DEV, are you going??
I think I'm interested in the interweb again ...
I've avoided myspace and lj for a while, but I kind of miss knowing what's going on in everyone's life. So ... hi again!
Alright, so one of our housemates is leaving pretty soon and we need someone to fill in his spot. Know of anyone that's looking for a place in SC? The rooms available are the $600 or $680 / month room. The $680 is nicer than the $600. $575 for the deposit. Get in touch with me ASAP if this is what you or one of your friends are looking for!
BAND GIRLFRIENDS GUIDE TO KEEPING YOUR MAN
(Edited version - compliments of JFK!)
-Don't try to be the "manager", do not get involved with band business, that is for the band.
-Don't ask his bandmates for relationship advice.
-Do Not complain when your (insert holiday here) date gets cancelled because a show has been scheduled. Holidays are no longer yours. Even Valentines Day!
***-It's NOT mandatory that you are at every show.***
-Do not get jealous when your boyfriend talks to groupies. They are the one's buying the CDs and merch, not you, so let them have their time. And remember...you get to go home with him!
-Babies don't make men quit bands....especially if you were a groupie.
-No, the band does not want you to go on tour with them. Like your going to sleep in the back of a van and eat ramen for 4 months strait!?
-Don't make the following introduction: Hi! I'm _____. My boyfriend is in ______.
-Don't follow him around at shows like a lost puppy, he is taking care of business, find your own crowd.
-Don't go to band practice. And it's normal to have practice more than once a week.
-Do not assume everyone loves your boyfriend's band.
-Don't make out with other band members girlfriends at the bar. Save that for the after party.
-DO turn yourself into a walking flyer for your boyfriend's band. The shirt is fine, but also break out the hat, the hoodie, AND the stickers on your ass!
-Do not stand in front of your boyfriend while he is onstage and stare at him like he is the greatest singer in the world.
-No rumpshaka dances during the show, that is unless your man is in 2 Live Crew.
-Do not change your style based on the type of band you date. Going from preppy to hardcore to glam shows you are not your own individual.
-If he calls while out on the road, don't complain about when he is coming home. You're lucky he is using the quarter to call you, instead of buying gas or food.
-Never say anything negative about your man's band that you cannot say to him. It will only come back to bite you in the ass.
-If your a stripper, keep work on the pole, not at shows. Not everyone wants to know Victoria's Secret.
-Never cause a fight right before your man goes on stage. Relationship problems can be dealt with after the show.
-If they have a show out of town, don't drive just so you and your boy can have "alone time". Because you want to "talk".
-You cannot drink on the band's tab! Buy your own!
-Keep the band seperate from your everyday life. That's your boyfriend's passion, find your own
Who's going to be at the Oakland Colleseum for Gigantour?
September 8th at the Oakland Colliseum with Megadeth!
where should i be in la this weekend?
In about an hour I'm going to see a neurologist who will administer an EMG (Electromyogram) to determine where I need to have surgery on my wrists. I'm a bit nervous and really want to take some pain killers before I go in (not even for the test really; my wrists are in constant pain), but I don't want anything interfering with the readings. Wish me luck!
Man I haven't been to LJworld in forever! What's up! So much to say ... I've moving into my friend's house with my girlfriend this Sunday (in Santa Cruz still). I've had tendonitis since September of last year and have been going to physical therapy every since. I was told today from my Orthopaedist that it's likely I'll need to have surgery to improve my condition.
My two Russian Siamese/Mink rats (Boris and Vlad) died a month ago. Vlad, the more outgoing of the two, was laying still one day, with maybe a broken back - I dunno, he just died slowly in my hands. It was pretty shitty.
Next day I find Boris in pretty much the same condition, but there's all these little bugs crawling all over him. I dunno what killed him first..
My last rat, whom my Dad was taking care of in Los Angeles, Damien, passed away as well. That awesome motherfucker was trained to shit on toilet paper and ran around the house like a cat! He also weighed well over two pounds and probably had a heart attack while he was eating food. No joke, but at least he died doing what he loved best. Eating. ;)
I can't wait to move to this new place this coming Sunday! Finally I can receive phone calls again (I can't get any reception at this apartment)! And I can have a dog!
I'm much too inebriated to keep a solid train of thought, so I'll end my post here. Oh, shit. Pics.
Um, damn, forgot to upload them. Here: go to my club's website -> http://www.clubdefiance.com click on the photo/gallery tab and just go through the photos ;)
Hope you're all well and had a good new year. It's going to take me a while to catch up with everyone, so just remember again that no, I don't know at all how you've been doing since I just fell back onto planet earth. Peace.
