SHOCKING NEWS [Feb. 12th, 2006|05:55 pm]

[mood |weirdweird]

Well today has been weird as hell. I ended up getting kick out of Alter. It was all because I did not want to play another free show in Georgia and they all wanted to. Well with me saying no they couldn't do it. Also, they let me go because of creative differences. They wanted to play all heavy rock(Godsmack, Chevelle, etc) and I wanted to play stuff that was different from their style. Oh well. I think this is a blessing and not something horrible. I know I can find another band and I have too much talent not to be in a band. Anyway, I'm going to get some dinner.

A night of music, drinking, and a possible anxiety attack [Oct. 13th, 2005|02:37 pm]

[music |"Diner"-Widespread Panic]

Last night I went to go see Widespread Panic in Charleston. I was having so much fun before the show. The hotel was serving cocktails from 5:30 to 7:30 so I end up having 5 vodka and cranbery drinks, 2 martinis, a 24 oz bud select, a samuel adams, and a glass of wine. I get to the concert and I am in the best freaking mood, dancing around and everything. Well after the show, I dont know why in the hell this happened, but I was walking to the bathroom and I felt really really sad all of a sudden. I walk in, look in the mirror, my eyes are bloodshot and extremely red. All of a sudden, I close the stall door and start crying my eyes out like I havent in a long time. I don't understand why, but I just cried for about 10 minutes. It was really strange. So I get back to the hotel and pass out. I wake up this morning feeling extremely happy and well rested. Who knows? Well I'm off to go rent some movies.

I am so completely heartbroken right now... The girl who I have been spending time with invited me over today n I get there n she asks me if I could drive her to the store n I was like okay. She gets some cigs and then we go back to her house. She tells me that her ex would be dropped off around 3 ish so we chill for a while. Her ex calls n she tells me that things are really weird and that he tells her he loves her even after he broke up with her n that he's trying to be affectionate. I ask her what does she want in a relationship and she tells me trust and happiness. Then after a pause she tells me that he's the only one for her and that they were meant to be together. She ends up walking outside and I say "how did you like hanging out with me a while ago" and she says "as friends, i think it went okay." Then she told me that her ex was coming over n we said goodbye. She wants to hang out next week as well. I started feeling overwhelmed with extreme sadness walking out in the rain to my car.. she will probably never have the same feelings that I have for her. I honestly feel like I'm just her shoulder to cry on or the guy she calls to talk about how her ex has been treating her. On the way home, I was just thinking about how fucking lonely I am and how the rest of my life will probably be this way. I dont know how much longer I can take it.

Tonight start out pretty great. I was feeling pretty upbeat n talkative and was really into it. By the 3rd set, I don't know what came over me but I got really fucking bummed out. I started thinking about a lot of depressing things.

...how I always feel like an outcast from the rest of the guys (when have I ever been invited to the "afterparties"?)
..how the last time I felt any connection it was with a drunk girl at a club
..how after spending all week doing stuff with the girl I've liked for so long, I ask her if she'd like to go out sometimes this weekend with me to go to the show n she tells me she wants to try and reconnect with her ex boyfriend.
..how I spend every day walking around by myself, watching everyone else around me have great social lifes n girlfriends
..realizing I'm 21 and have never been romantically involved
..feeling so different and so distant from everybody else
.."feel like I'm just a shoulder to cry on, someone to call up to make you feel better when your boyfriend treats you bad, dumps you, so on."
..knowing that how hard I try, I'll never fit in with the popular crowd
..feeling like nobody cares what I think
I don't know it's thoughts like these that get me down. I try so hard to block them out...

[music |"Only When you Leave"-Spandau Ballet]

I've been wanting to post about this for a while.. Last week, I met up with a girl who I have known since 11th grade. We started talking about old times n she said that she has been really down recently n stuff hasn't been going well. I told her that I'd come see her this week. Well, we've been hanging out every day this week and having a blast. In the past I really had a serious crush on her and it was kinda obvious. Now, I've grown up and it's not so obvious anymore. Even though I'm just friends with her, I honestly have those same feelings for her inside. I'm just totally freaked out to tell her my feelings, especially since she just broke up with someone. Another thing is, I'm not like any other guy she knows and I just don't know if she'd fall for someone like me. I don't know if she can tell how interested I am, however it's not as obvious as it was in the past. Oh well, I've really enjoyed seein her the past few days..Anyway, I'm gunna go to sleep.

[music |"Human"-Rick Springfield]

Last night was one of the funnest nights that I have out partying at clubs. I ended up watching a really good 80s cover band called Mcfly at sabastians. It was really funny watching the crowd react to them. The band had the 80s fashion going on, the lead singer was wearing a red suit n everyone else looked like former members of Whitesnake heh. Some of the dudes in the crowd were like "bo, what is he wearin? he thinks he's Rod Stewart?" lol. They played a lot of stuff like Journey, Rick Springfield, Michael Jackson, etc. I ended up meeting a girl named Brandi after the show and she was like really touchy n clingy whew. She wanted me to take her to Goocci's dancing n we ended up dancing for 2 hours and having a great time. What a blast. I got home at 4 n got up at 9. Well I'm off to get some lunch.

You Are Rocky Road Ice Cream
Unpredictable and wild, you know how to have fun.
You're also a trendsetter who takes risks with new things.
You know about the latest and greatest - and may have invented it.
You are most compatible with vanilla ice cream.

[music |"New York City Girl"-John Waite]

Well this week was pretty nice and peaceful. I was able to catch some movies at the Beacon although it was pretty funny taking my 5 year old cousin Parker to see "Fantastic Four." We got there at 12:45 at theater 1 and there was an old lady and her two grandkids there talking and the grandkids were talking about thieves. Parker yells out "I'll give you advice!!! Do NOT let Gerald Stukes into your house! he stole a car from my Memaw!" Then he continued to talk over the kids conversation for several minutes. Well someone walked in n said we were at the wrong theater so we had to go to theater 6 and it was packed. I take Parker to the back row and he YELLS over the whole theater. All of the people around were telling him to be quiet. He was throwing popcorn too, so I ended up taking him out of the theater for about 5 minutes and them take him to the front row and he was quiet the whole rest of the movie. Kids are a trip. I ended up talking to Heather outside for a while n she hadta go to Burger King to buy her co-workers some drinks n stuff and then her car overheated but went back down to normal. She came over and checked out the new house. She's moving to Greenville to attend ITT, where she will take classes to become a video game designer. I told her that "Price is Right" for ps2 would be like the coolest game to design, or maybe even a remake of the nintendo game "Skate or Die". I know that designers can crank out an atari 2600 looking game in one night's work, so I can imagine how good a game could look in a few months time.
Today, the band practiced for the first time in like 3 weeks. The reason why we haven't been able to practice is because we've had shows booked every weekend since about 2 months ago. The lake wateree pictures are up on the website now and most of them turned out good. The band learned a Seether song called "Remedy" which I thought was pretty funky. I am singing and playing the drums to the Don Henley song "Boys of Summer". It is possibly the msot challenging song that I have sung because it's such a fast beat and you have to SANG from your gut on the choruses. It should be a blast to play live. Anyway, I'm gunna watch "Million Dollar Baby".
