my life lately doesn't seem like my life. i have everything going on and yet, nothing at all.|
i'm sick of only posting in live journal when i feel ironic, elitist, or depressed. you deserve better than this. you've been with me since junior year of high school. (which is about 6 years now).
i went to a party tonight where i was the youngest person there. i'm 22. that's hard to do. i hit on a girl who after about 15 minuets into the conversation pointed out she was 10 years older than me. it was pretty rad. one thing i can say is those "kids" in their late 20's/early 30's have MUCH better taste in music than kids my age or younger. i listened to The Lawrence Arms, Hot Water Music, Samiam, Osker, Kid Dynamite, Mock Orange, Face To Face, Jawbreaker, NOFX, and Green Day mixed in with modern indie and top 40. shit like M.I.A and Justin Timberlake and Broken Social Scene. if these people can listen to this kind of shit together, why is everyone my age so stuck on one thing or just tunnel visioned?
i got home from Social Life's first tour earlier this week. it wasn't a big tour. we just did part of the north east coast. (cities: High Point, Greensboro, VA Beach, Richmond, Baltimore, Severna Park, New Brunswick and Trenton. and we stopped in DC.) For a first tour i will i say it couldn't have gone better. A lot of people say first tours are sight seeing and waiting. which i will say, we had enough days off to do a lot of sight seeing. but, we always had a place to stay, always had booze to drink, always had food to eat, always had people to hang with and every show had a good turnout of kids who truly enjoyed the music. this gives me hope. i thought no one cared about punk rock or pop punk anymore. if they arn't wearing american apperal and playing synth fuck em, is what i thought the motto was. maybe i was wrong.
i think our E.P. came out really well. if you havn't heard it yet, it's free, and it's up for stream or download on our myspace. (www.myspace.com/sociallifenc) go give it a shot, if you havn't yet. even if you don't like it. give it a chance. that's all i ask. i've decided this is my life and this is what i will do until i die, even it gets me nowhere, at least i'm not selling out, right? (at least, until i get the chance at a big contract...hopefully). if you don't like the recordings, let me know. i won't take offence, i'd actually like to hear what you think i could do to make it better. if you do like it, awesome, let me know. i'll get you a copy with the "artwork". i honestly don't think i've put more of myself into anything. so feedback is more than welcome. i mean, hell, if you're reading this, that means you're a livejournal friend, which means i've known you for a hell of a long time.
last thing. still single. still painfully looking. i know a girl who i like. but i'm not putting too much stock into it. i'm done with the 15 year old puppydog love. it hurts too much. so let me know if you think im good for someone.
