"When the GodMen band seized the stage again, they tore into an anthem called “Grow A Pair!”: “We’ve been beaten down/ Feminized by the culture crowd,” they sang. “No more nice guy, timid and ashamed/ We’ve had enough, cowboy up/ In the power of Jesus name/ Welcome to the battle/ A million men have got your back/ Jump up in the saddle/ Grab a sword, don’t be scared/ Be a man, grow a pair!” Said Tholstrup, as he surveyed the crowd: “If 200 men are feeling this, other men are feeling it too.” Which ought to provide enough testosterone for plenty of GodMen gatherings to come."
just when you thought watered-down, contemporary "religion" couldn't get any worse, it's........the GodMen! it's like the promise keepers and the man show had an illegitimate beast-child!
damnit I need to get over my awkwardness, sometimes I find myself rushing off to get out of a conversation before I run out of things to say... I was a goatee at the halloween party, don't know how convincing the costume was though! Beard season ftw. I'm going to bring a few boxes up to St. Cloud tonight, although I kind of just want to leave all my shit down here except my rhodes, so I could sit around all day playing it in my underwear. Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is amazingggggggggggggggggggggggg I always end stupid posts by holding down a keyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
only 2 more weeks til my last day of work in Richfield...time to start packing! I'm hoping to find a semi-comfortable bed soon (anybody getting rid of one?) I'll probably bring a bare minimun of stuff with me when I move, maybe cut out some of the useless distractions around me? Maybe quit checking myspace and livejournal so much? (I don't really use them anyways)
After a 2-day quest involving pho in uptown, getting lost in St Paul, 2 Barnes and Nobles, 2 malls, various other hijinks, and finally dinkytown, I got a copy of DMT - The Spirit Molecule for some light reading.
Oh and sorry Wild Wednesdayers, I didn't have my phone with me that day. Maybe next week?
I think I've finally decided on piano lessons...for now. Hopefully I can find some cheap lessons in St Clouddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd
waste upon waste upon waste how do I save? myself or the world or rock and roll. I don't even know what's falling anymore. just the inevitable crumble. pay the man. he'll make you feel okay only because spending money feels okay. not so hard-earned. just as easily spent. lazy fuck.
fuckin money, all I want is a 3 foot angled RCA cable and a god damned 1/4" panel jack. IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK FOR!?!?!?! APPARENTLY SO, TCF, YOU SOULSUCKING BASTARDS!!!!!!!!!! shit I need a soldering iron too. I think I have solder though.
oh and I'm going to join a working abroad program and work in Australia for a few months.
dear people: if you're going to be that bitchy to your young children, please stop fucking and put the three or four you've already squeezed out up for adoption so they can be raised by some decent parents. thanks.
p.s. wow you're an asshole.
I still don't know what the hell I'm doing. Of course moving out seems like a good solution, but it always does after a few months. If I keep moving, the time it takes for me to get sick of where I am will just keep getting shorter and shorter. Pretty soon I'll be a nomad. It shouldn't be that hard to work and get decent grades in classes. It's not. I'm fucking lazy. Work isn't that hard. I could be doing much better at that too, come to think of it. Once again, fucking lazy. I've seen too many commercials to ever be content. There's always that elusive missing piece that will make everything better, and it can be mine for 3 easy payments of only $99.95.
and here's the part where I say that I should be practicing guitar and piano more, only to come to the shocking realization that saying it won't make it happen any more than buying more instruments will.
It amazes me that I still put up with some things or anything at all. What the hell does it take?
and the real kicker is the fact that I could really use a shoulder rub right now but my shoulders are sunburned!
Anybody want to buy 2 tool tickets for the September 16th show at Target Center? I got some upper level seats from ticketmaster and then caved in and got some floor tickets off of ebay. The ones I'm selling are section 231 row H...paid $70 apiece with all the bogus ticketmaster fees...buy these from me damnit!
Milwaukee was good times, besides the construction... It was friggin hot out! I keep buying shit for my guitar. Yesterday I got a phaser and made a crappified pedalboard. Now I need to actually play the fucker. I really want reese's peanut butter cups. ALL THE TIME.
