Sara was tired, she finishes the code tomorrow for http://docanddinner.com. I’ve been everywhere in this city today. I’ve been trying to get a new phone, but learned that I have to put down a deposit – which I can’t afford at the moment. Meaning I went around and put in job applications, yay!

May go to Houston for my friend’s b-day. Although, I’m broke. So most likely not. Rainy rainy days. Spent way too much time registering everything for the online promotions to start rolling soon.

“I was taught to respect all people until they give me a reason not to.”

Song idea #68
I never said that I love you,
And I’m sorry that I loved you.
When we meet, I think I’ll say it.

That I love you, but we know it.
That it isn’t really true.
We always hoped to be one of the few,
that would miss our cue.

This is done, it’s already been done.
We know your fucked up,
but we don’t care if your fucked up.
Because everybody’s fucked up

Let’s walk to another room,
and whisper that I love you.
I’m sorry that I loved you.
When we meet, I think I’ll show it.

That I love you, but we know it.
That we can’t seem to fake it.
That it wasn’t ever true.
You always hoped to be one of the few,
that would be hurt, too.

This is done, it’s already been done.
We know your fucked up,
but we don’t care if your fucked up.
Because everybody’s fucked up

We know your fucked up,
but we don’t care if your fucked up.
Because everybody’s fucked up

We know your fucked up,
but we don’t care if your fucked up.
Because everybody’s fucked up
This is done.

Song Idea #67 from another Sunday drive

It’s easy to speak, just open your mouth.
I wish to hear your voice.
That beautiful sound, that is your soul.

Lets be profound.
Lets renew your life.
Even if you’ve been stranger,
than you’ve been before.

It’s easy to speak, or so they say.
But I wish to hear your voice.
That beautiful sound, that is your soul.

Let us indulge.
Lets renew your life.
Even if you’ve been worse,
than what’s been said.
Even if you’ve been apathetic,
to those around.
Lets make new dreams,
and forget about the nightmares.

For all I wish to hear is your voice.
That beautiful sound, that will renew my soul.
To speak soft, to know who’s in control.

RIP MightyWaveII, same goes to you SpongebobI. I have to get a new phone/plan. I’m thinking Verizon, but I can’t decide to get a smartphone plan or to be a cheapass. I should get a weekend job and go with the smartphone plan. Gamestop, I hate you – but I’m coming back. I need monies.

Went to the Revel, only real highlight was Tower of Power and face painting. I love me some funk and soul music. I like your laugh, but I think your shy. I would like to learn more about you, although I don’t really see anything in the future. You just seem to interest me.

Rule #32: Enjoy the little things. Although, Rule #2 is the most practical in all situations.

p.s. Learn to shut the hell up at times, you say some of the stupidest things.

Interesting read, that my friend wrote.

“It’s easy to speak, open your mouth.”

Today was long and a lot of work. Had a good meeting with some friends about how to plan for the future of that project. The theme for the full length and all the promotion behind this cycle is mighty waves or water, a metaphor for how life comes crashing again, again, and again. Which individuals either get swept away and are lost, or look at each event as a new beginning to rebuild their lives.

Gameplan for them for the next 12months or so.
1) Record the full length themselves.
2) Start up a video blog (thinking more of an artistic direction?)
3) Send off the record to be professional mixed and master.
4) Rehearse until they become a hungry force to be reckoned with when seen live.
5) Branding of their name.
6) T-shirt designs to sell early to build hype/help pay for record costs.
7) Release a digital free ‘EP’
8) Work on full length album art.
9) Setting up all social networks/web materials to follow the theme in design.
10) First show/CD release to be schedule in February with a decent sized act.
11) Do weekend touring for first 6 to 9 months. So the guys can keep their full-time jobs and build a draw in other markets.
12) After draw is established, go on tour to support another larger act.

“Friends are people you put your penis into. Write that down.”

http://docanddinner.com Goes up Monday, eeeeeeeeeeeeeep!

I am a man of my word. I hope I keep this mindset for the rest of my life. As I think it defines a part of me.

1) Woke up this morning at 4 puking my guts up.
2) Skipped all of my classes today, because I was still asleep.
3) Went to workout to make up for my lack of productiveness.
4) Deadlifted 286lbs for 5, meaning my strength is inching it’s way back.
5) Had a meeting with Sara for D&D. Newcastles and Margaritas!
6) Carved glaciers with my freshly tuned trucks.
7) Enjoyed the breeze in my hair, and the setting of the sun.
8) Gave advice on a situation to invest in another life.

Seized the day? Check!

I really do hope that D&D grows into a well oiled machine that I can make a living off of. I haven’t felt this much passion for a project in a long while.

I can be a handy man. Built some slide-gloves today out of an old pair of motorcycle gloves. Going to try and test them tomorrow. Worked on D&D, it’s coming along nicely. At this moment there is no costs, everything is volunteer based. Website should be up soon, too.

I laughed really loud today, I think it shocked some people. They all started staring, but it was well worth it. Enjoyed my conversation with Heaux and Trace today. We talked about things we hated and loved. Lessons we should of learned faster, because we knew better. You know the usual things that people talk about when they are trying to catch back up.

The sunset was quite an awesome site today, as I saw it driving over the Jimmy Davis. Reminded me of the last sunset before my brother left for Iraq.

I’ve become obsessed, I do believe.

Went outside, experienced how beautiful it was. Picnic with loved ones did occur and will happen, again. Worked out, I can feel my strength returning.

Came home visited and loved on the family. Left for bike ride/longboard-sesh w/ Ste. I’m pretty sure I got up to over 30 mph on the board – bombing hills are fun (falling and scraping hands are not).

Really, females are not allowed to say that I am not awesome.

Gnar.

Isaiah 59:1-2

September 28, 2009

Just heavy news. My favorite uncle is going to jail… He supposedly hit a couple riding on a motorcycle. A sheriff and his wife. The wife is dead, and the sheriff is alive, but banged up really bad. He didn’t call it in or go in willingly, supposedly – the details are all still sketchy.

If somehow they are lenient he will get 5 years. Most likely he is going to be getting vehicular homicide. Meaning he will get 20-25, and die in prison/get out in his mid 70s. Fuck. I will never hear him play guitar, or witness him tell a story, again.

This was the first time I’ve ever seen a tear in my Dad’s eyes. It fucking destroyed me. My Dad honestly thought my uncle had kicked the habit, I could sense his feelings of being disappointed and longing to help his brother.

Reminder: Learn to fly/run from zombies faster.
AKA new fitness goals.

If the body and mind are aligned, there is no need for fear.

I think I’ve become a wayward son, it’s been a long while since I’ve walked home drunk.

"You know a ton of cute girls.  Go out and touch them.  All of them!"

I think this is one of my few legit reasons why I do so horrible in school. It’s from my lack of sleep. That I stay up with my mother during her fits of anxiety driven insomnia. To pass the time instead of writing as I’ve done lately. I’ve started doing line sketches, again. It’s slowly coming back to me.
