Time:11:43 pm.
Mood: sick.
Haha, holy crap. I can't believe this thing still exists. And even worse, half of the stuff I posted 2 years ago I still haven't done. Probably not a good sign. Oh well...

Mood: accomplished.
Ok, so this summer i thought would be kind of a drag, seeing as my band is done for the summer. But as it turns out, I'm going to be quite the busy kid. Lets run down the list:

Swim training
Me and Austin acoustic project
In Peace and War recording/writing (solo project)
Perfecting voice
Acoustic shows
Work 30 hours a week
jamming with old friends
Gabriel Possible summer revival!!
Writing + recording more Beloved Tragedy Material!!!!
Band Camp for 2 weeks which means getting my ass kicked on drums 8 hours a day.
Promo like hell for chasing angels, make contacts for a possible summer tour next year.
Possibly being switched to lead vocals instead of charlie
Working with mr. winship in an apartment building.
Working my ass off on piano
Visiting Kates grandma like every couple weekends
visiting my grandmother a whole bunch more.
Kate meets the family
Going to new york with kate
Trying to make a book of my own poetry cause god knows i have enough. I was thinking of recording it and making a cd out of it if anyone was actually interested.
going on 2 big fishing trips with nick, one in plymouth deep sea, another is a trip to vermont.
Doing a bunch of covers cause i know i'll be spending a lot of days around the campfire with a guitar

For covers, right now I've got:
Limbeck- In Ohio on some steps
Sublime- What I got
Oasis- Wonderwall
Bob Dylan- The times are a'changin (still being worked on)

Any ideas? Comments? Leave love kids. I never use this anymore, surprise surprise!

Time:3:33 pm.


listen at either one, myspace seems to have a bit better quality. The quality of the demo is completely stripped, if you want the demo with the other songs on it but can't get to a show email me and send a self addressed letter/package with $1 in it to cover shipping and whatnot. It's worth it, the demo sounds incredible.

Subject:are we crossing paths or borders
Time:8:35 am.
Mood: i'm at school.

Our lives, like a drop of water flowing down a vine. There's any direction we can go, we have our choice. But unknowingly, we follow the largest and biggest path. Lets face it, none of us are going to become famous, we've all followed the same basic trail. Yes, we all may have taken a backroad here and there; but when it's all said and done, we get to the ground, correct?

The point I'm getting at is the fact that we are all born with the same possibilities. Notice I did not say oppurtunity, that is because we all don't. Some people from specific backrounds cannot do certain things, it's a way of life. Like falling on the outermost branch, it may take a while, but you'll make it to the main root.

And then there are instances when you fall to the ground prematurely, for whatever cause. Unexpected, sometimes possible to stop though, if the right precautions were taken. It's so depressing to know these things could have been stopped. Every drop is so beautiful in it's own way, and when it first hits, it is pure and clean. Life is a lot like a drop of rain going down a vine, when you consider it. Millions of drops flow down the same vine, and eventually they end up in the same place. We all end up in the same place, don't we?

Subject:Full throttle now..
Time:6:05 pm.
I take everything I have for granted; Kate, my band, my car, my job, music dept. at school, evertyhing. I should be happy, I have all these things. I still feel like I'm on the outside looking in. I don't know what I can do, I never feel like I truly get everything out, maybe I have to be honest with myself first. But how can you be honest with yourself if you aren't even sure that you aren't already? Enemies and friends are interchangable, whether or not people want to accept it. Within minutes, your best friends become your worst enemies, and it's such a psychological hell-hole when things like that happen, stability is lost, and it leaves a scar in your memory. Next time you have friends, you hold back, trying to keep something from happening, a reflex to keep yourself from being hurt again. Typical evolutionary trait. And somehow, I think I made my mind beleive I had hurt myself this way, and it's subconciously burying my own thoughts to keep from hurting myself. Does that make sense? I don't know; maybe it's the fact that I don't get enough sleep every night tied in with the fact I have no time to sit back and just think and let things out or whatever. I haven't written in four months, I don't know if I'm afraid of what will come out; because my mind just draws a blank, over and over. It's like cancer, it's a part of me that's just slowly killing the rest of me. I struggled so much to try to get SOMETHING out, all I could get was a couple lines. The band likes it, so it's going to our new song we are recording May 28th. I can't tell whether or not I actually want that, because I'm just not happy with it. I'm not happy with myself, I know I have higher potential and I just can't do it anymore. I don't know why but I can't. I feel like a failure; my life revolves around music, kate, and trying to get a step ahead of being poor. And I can't even handle that, I can't even get ahead in any way; making it by through working 20 hours a week and buying clothes at St. Vincent DePaul and Salvation Army. All the while rich local kids can afford the nice clothes and buy the cheap clothes to be scene. Fuck you scene and everything that you've created. It's like this deity is just hovering over me picking everything I've even been interested in and destroying it. I need to stop bitching

Subject:Pope Benedict, a sign of things to come..
Time:10:17 pm.
Mood: I miss my Kate.
So I don't use this ever, huh? Well I am going to try to, starting today. I'll be wicked "scene", or something like that. More or less something I can go back to look at and see what kind of a fool I was. So since the last time I used this a lot has happened. I'm offically a "drummer". Captain of the Bassists in our school drumline, Co-captain behind Dave. Dave's incredible, and he's taught me so much already, as has Mr. Winship. I'm lucky to have them around to help me out and get me to catch up to speed since I've never been formally taught anything.

Today me and my friend Marlo went for a walk in my woods. Not really "planned" so to speak. She brought her camera with black and white film and we just walked to the back of the fish hatchery and took pictures. Got lost somewhere though, and it took about 3 hours to get home. After we made a trip to get some grub from D'Angelos, and talked more about how life was for the both of us, since we don't really ever talk anymore. I guess friends come and go; what can you do. Live and learn, enjoy what time you have together and make the most of it. Make music, and save it. Save it on anything, tape, cd, 8-track if you must. The memories last forever. For instance, the Civil Disobedience (for those of you who don't know, my first band from like 7th grade) tapes I still have, and even though the music sucked as well as the recording, it's all good memories. I wish Waiting In Vain had recorded more, and I wish Gabriel recorded something. I'm trying to get Chasing Angels into the studio, but it won't be for a month or two. We need to before June though, or we'll be fucked.

I've decided I want to start another (yes, another) project band just myself. I need a name, and I think it's going to be a mix of everything imaginable. I know, strange. Acoustic and electric stuff, whatever I'm in the mood for or what I write that doesn't fit Chasing Angels. Maybe even just have some poems read, we'll see. I'm not going to hold back at all, that's the purpose of it. A complete outlet without cares of what it sounds like. I was thinking of the name "In Peace and War". Like it? Well I hope so because it's already decided. Did right now. So we'll see how that works out.

Well I guess that's all I've got to say for now. So long kids.

Time:3:09 pm.
Mood: anxious.
Ok, so I've been gone for a long while. Maybe a comeback? Maybe not? Either way, I've been busy. 2 bands going on, one just recorded.. it's all acoustic. www.purevolume.com/belovedtragedy

A glass with stellar imagery
It's bound to our intravascular metamorphesis;
With anamorphic shadows.
Who'm act like spirits spilt over the edge,
They're docked around the yard
Their ships multiply till we reach
The end of the road (hit the decks!)
Their engines are warmed
For the war of the worlds,
But their bullets are jumping the gun.
(This isn't the last time our pistols will be aimed at your flags)
Hit the decks!
Their bullets are jumping the gun
Without the right steps,
We can all kiss the ocean floor.

This describes how I feel now more than when I wrote it. Weird.
