Evening in Reno

Hahaah! As I sat down to write this, I heard this quote on TV.

"The easiest way to lose something, is to want it too badly."

This quote summed up tonight's events perfectly. Sea Wolf and Phoenix were playing at the Knitting Factory in Reno. I had been offered a few tickets earlier in the month, didn't really take the time to think on it. I figured one ticket would be around for me one way or the other. (I got lazy) This morning everyone at the Box decided we would all venture down to go jam out together. However! We all soon found out it was too late, the show had sold out! BUMMER!

So I cruised down knowing that I would see about 10-15 people I knew and hope that I would be able to go in with them. Basically two hours passed by and still no dice! As I was watching Sea Wolf through the front door, i devised a clever plan to get in! The security guard's had dropped some wristbands. I waited for them to look the other way and kicked them over next to the trash can. When I reached over to pick them up the wind blew it out of my hand, I chased them and picked them up. As soon as I went to walk away, one of the guards came up to me and padded me down like I had a weapon and I was ready to hurt someone. Yelling at me "WHERE IS THE REST OF THEM?" I was then Told very sternly to leave. As I accepted my fate and started the walk of shame, I hear "Yo Tony, get this kid the hell out of here!" I look at Tony and he is a Giant Black man with a shaved head. Easily 4 times my size. I turn around as I leave the alleyway and he is following me to my car, which is 5 blocks away.

Being a little bummed that I could not get into the show I really wanted to see, I decided to go to In N Out.

In short... AMAZING evening! Amazing Burger!!!!!!

First street rail ever

Usually when you get ballsy enough to start hitting street rails, you use your head.. and you think. Well I was too ballsy, and decided to hit Squaws Olympic Park Down-Flat-Down at the beginning of the season (early dec.) Due to lack of snow it was a very sketchy roll in, and it was a bungee. Needless to say, I got fucked up.

In the End

In the end
We have burnt more bridges than we had set aside
In the end
We left too much undetermined
The coroner could not determine the time of death
In the end it was worth it all

You left us feeling as cold as you
Climbing that hill
Climbing that hill
Climbing a hill that was slowly shaping into a mountain
Climbing a mountain
Climbing a mountain

Building a tunnel
I am building a tunnel

Every bridge you burnt
I built a tunnel

In the end
I wanted you to be unhappy
In the end
I was happy

For every bridge you burnt
I dragged the river

In the end I wanted you to be unhappy
In the end the jury never knew we existed.

I'll Tell You Something About Rock and Roll

I'll tell you about punk rock: punk rock is a word used by dillitante's and heartless manipulators about music that takes up the energies and the bodies and the hearts and the souls and the time and the minds of young men who give what they have to it and give everything they have to it and it's a... it's a term that's based on contempt, it's a term that's based on fashion, style, elitism, satanism and everything that's rotten about rock'n'roll. I don't know Johnny Rotten but I'm sure... I'm sure he puts as much blood and sweat into what he does as Sigmund Freud did. You see, what sounds to you like a big load of trashy old noise is in fact the brilliant music of a genius, myself . And that music is so powerful that it's quite beyond my control and ah... when I'm in the grips of it I don't feel pleasure and I don't feel pain, either physically or emotionally. Do you understand what I'm talking about? Have you ever felt like that? When you just couldn't feel anything and you didn't want to either. You know? Like that? Do you understand what I'm saying sir?

-Mogwai "Punkrock"

Words that make you feel alive.

New Year, New Beginning Rant

So if you don't know I have had a horrible end to this year, and a very rough and weird start to this new year. However I am awakened FINALLY, thanks to close family and friends(REAL FRIENDS), who care very very much about me and know who I am, and what I am capable of.

Yes I have lost many friends because of all this FUCKED up shit, and I have lost much respect, among even more people. All I have to say is... I AM BETTER THAN THAT, AND ALL OF THIS.

There are a select few of you that know this, and a lot of you that don't.

I will make it short and sweet:

The few of you that have helped me in my darkest hour's and have seen me in the worst mental and physical state, I would like to say thank you VERY VERY MUCH! I will forever love and respect you for that.

and for those of you that have written me off, have not given me a chance to explain myself, or have not given me a second chance, or any of you that took sides of this SHITTY situation, well.... YOU CAN FUCK OFF. I am the nicest fucking person in this shit hole tiny dramatic town, too bad you didn't get a chance to realize that, or too bad you'll never get treated the way that every human should be treated by a sweet nice human being.

I am glad to say that this is a new beginning and I am opening my eyes and my heart to whatever comes my way. I am looking forward to this next chapter in my life, because I will no longer be held back by someone who does not respect me the way that I should.

As my rule of life, every time I hit a new chapter and start a new beginning I get a new tattoo. Hopefully next paycheck I will be able to get myself a tat that reminds me of this situation and how I am an EVEN better person because of it.

if YOU! are reading this, you know who you are... THEN FUCK OFF, you lost you're chance at the best thing you will ever have had in your life.

Bourgeois Bagels

Andy decided to order us some Bagels from H&H, which is a jewish bagel company from NY, where he ate at every day when he was growing up. These bagels came with instructions on how to eat and to store.

I cannot believe that there is food in my house that has such insane instructions.
I had to put this post up just for fun.

To maintain quality, freeze unused Bagels

Before you put them in the freezer:

Slice the bagels in half.
Place them in the enclosed plastic bags.
Do not put bagels into the refrigerator as this will decrease their shelf life.

Serving Suggestions For Frozen Bagels:

Microwave for approximately 20 seconds, slice and place in a preheated oven (475 degrees F.) for approximately 1 to 2 minutes.

For regular ovens first thaw for approximately 1 hour, then slice and place in a preheated oven for approximately 1 to 2 minutes.
