Tonight, I found out about a damn fine touring deal that I missed out on due to me relying on others for hard work to be accomplished.
Fuck you, asshole.
I found a large crack in my favourite china today.
I hate having a roommate who loves to practice playing drums on my kit.
Now I'm down one of two chinas, my fav one, and I'm so broke I can't replace it.
I makes me want to explode.
It was also my birthday, so that was super shitty.
I want to trash my entire kit.
Anyone else ever have these kind of days?

I should have updated soon about my weekend last, but I've been busy and lazy about the LJ stuff. (plus, MySpace has music to listen to, so fuck this)
Last weekend I had the great opportunity of seeing DEICIDE live with Skinless, Despised Icon, and others at the Opera House in Toronto. Fucking amazing show. Zach and I ended up having beers with Glen Benton of Deicide before the show, it was pretty awesome. Got my ticket autographed as well. I also met a few people, got a few phone numbers, and I'm supposed to hook up with this married couple who wants to hang out (the wife was kinda all over me) and they have friends that want members for their band. Weirdness.
The show was excellent, a ton of death metal madness. Dudes were diving into the crowd from atop the stage speakers, the first guy managed to land right on my left side and left me with a nice mark down my back/shoulder/arm. I wish I could get a picture of it, it's almost gone now. I managed to hold my own in the pit all night (craziest pit i've seen ever, even since Lamb Of God) and for Deicide I was at center stage holding on to the railing for dear life. Kicked, punched, elbowed in the head, two fights, and lots of random feet in the face meant I was hurting for a few days after. BUT IT WAS ALL COMPLETELY WORTH IT and I would murder all my friends (what little I have) and family (what little they are) just to go back in time to re-live that night.
BEST. NIGHT. EVER. (Totally makes up for missing NIN backstage)
Today I get to hit up this new bird conservatory thinger something that's in Niagara Falls and then go out for a nice dinner with a friend. 23 sucks already.
I am done school in a week, then I get to start working fulltime as an electrician. So far, I love the work that it involves, I hope I enjoy the job itself. Way more fun than working with fucking computers all day, or doing tech-support / call center shit, so I'm happy.
Meshuggah's Catch Thirty Three is amazing, and I've been stuck on The Refused's album "The Shape Of Punk To Come" a few years too late. New The Red Chord is awesome, still want to hear the new Nile, enjoying some Skinless and Deicide as well lately. Haven't been working on music much myself, but I have re-configured the drumkit for more of a Tomas Haake feel. I've been playing the 7string Ibanez more than the drums lately, I'm starting to do really well on guitar. I'm also looking into a few death metal band placements as a vocalist, apparently my screams/growls are better than I thought. Question is, do I have the time for all this? I hope I can work it all in.
A LIFE ONCE LOST'S new album HUNTER comes out on the 28th of this month. I CAN'T FUCKING WAIT. Will they tour 'round St Catharines, or even Toronto again? I sure fucking hope so, it's been over a year since I saw them here at L3, and it was one of the best shows ever as well. They're the fucking shit. I knew they'd make it.
I think that's about it, I'm heading out to do the best I can to avoid the phone today.
June 12th, 1994 - OJ Simpson is accused of killing his ex-wife Nicole, and Ron Goldman.
So, last night was fucking awesome. I went to see Nine Inch Nails (after wanting/waiting for my chance to see them since 1992) and only saw the first song by The Dresden Dolls, and the last song of NIN's.
Stupid fucking body decided it was a bad night, and when mixed with alcohol, put me into the "medic room" where I lay in total pain with my head in a bucket for THE WHOLE FUCKING SHOW. Well, they let me out for the last song, but I didn't even make it through the crowd enough TO EVEN SEE A SINGLE MEMBER OF THE FUCKING BAND.
So I got to stand there for a minute, with all my energy back in me (finally) and using it all to scream out "ENCORE, ENCORE, ENCORE" hoping maybe there was a SLIGHT chance I could SEE TRENT REZNOR IN PERSON at least.
Aside from that, I searched SO hard before and after the show, and NO MEGHAN.
I wonder if I can get a refund for last night from my inner self.
I am updating my will today.
Hope everyone had fun at NIN in Toronto last night.
I'll be there tonight. Don't look for me.
As far as I know, everyone I know went to last night's show. Hope you all had fun... insider info says tonight will be better though. ;D
