Simply thrilling. I live for seeing this page full of tour dates.
Things are a bit more rosy: shows are getting booked, started designing posters, vocals for acoustic songs are recorded, seeing vans at some point, watching House in HD. Might be in Boston longer than I had previously thought, which is OK but need to be filled with productivity.
Laid down guitar tracks for 6 songs on the acoustic EP. Vocals and looking at van tomorrow. Feeling better then I have in days. I love Boston/JP.
Several Things You Should Know About Red Lanterns
bigger than a breadbox. once drank all the tea in china on a bet. will turn on you in a heartbeat. have yet to write a proper love song. have a difficult time reconciling all the pain that exists in this world with the moments of unfathomable human achievement. blood, blood everywhere. and not a drop to drink. toast absent friends. are unwieldy and cantankerous. request naked pictures....
Finally got a few nibbles. Feeling better. Also, DOCTOR WHO PREMIERE!!!!!!!!!!
I got awesome rock shoes. Nice. I also got gift certificates to crappy suburb restaurants. I am more excited about this than I should be. I think there might be something wrong with me: I can think of nothing I particularly want to do with the internet. Like, I know there ARE things to do with it, almost innumerable things (several of them nonpornography related) but I cannot for the life of...
Merry Christmas everyone. Just because your god is made-up doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be nice for one day a year.
I’ll have a bigger boner if you were born in 1992.– JJ
Sex is only fun if it hurts the girl.– JJ
When things are quiet and I’m alone, I always get nervous that I’ll never be able to write another song again. I worry it’ll suddenly just dry up because, after all, it was never really mine begin with, I was just stealthily stealing into the temple, grabbing a handful of communion wafers, then bolting out of there like the devil’s on my heels. I worry someone will realize...
I’m trying to think of some quote/lyric to express that I’m excited to be coming back to Boston, but all I could think of was that stupid Dropkick Murphys song “IM SHIPPING UP TO BOSTOOOOON WHOOOAH OH OOOOOH”. Regardless, I will be in Boston within the hour. Call for hanging.
hopefully this theme is slightly less obnoxious. I stopped feeling the vertigo things really quickly.
Better, much better.

I'm sorry, it's early and I don't want to go to...
Damn straight. iamdirtfarmer: And frankly I just can’t help it: I’m sick of so called “independant” culture. Chuck Palaniuk is not (good) literature, Requim for a Dream is not (good) film. If there is anything this decade has given us, it’s a new breed of Philistine. I’m over it. I wanna go home and watch American Pie 2.
Tomorrow will be better.
Red Lanterns: now with 20% more unemployment!
The internet gods have smiled upon me. God bless those obsessive collectors who compile things into neat little torrents for ease in downloading. Here’s to you, Siouxie Q.
Three Genres I Am Retiring
“freak-folk” “anti-folk” “twee” I am fucking SICK TO DEATH of this shit. I have to imagine it’s people younger/more arrogant than me (a seriously difficult feat) spending their time trying to think of ways to quantify the most banal off-shoots of pre-established genres into something that sounds unique. ALL of these genres could simply be replaced with...
Hey, not doing anything this Tuesday/Wednesday? Come see Red Lanterns in NYC.
The Cleveland Show on Fox is weird. There… There are talking bears in it. I suppose it doesn’t distract from how terrible it is.
Show went quite well, very tidy, in spite of previous apprehension. Still wish I could have remembered the second verse to “Free Falling.”
Weirdly out of steam. Set sounded passable to day at least. OH I got approved for unenployment! Yay moneys$$$!
The middle aged DJ just started singing along with this weird country/metal song. I think it’s an “original”. The party just took a really weird turn.
Papa Johns is a poor subsitute for Doms, but it’ll have to do.

lemme find out: lemme explain
What in the name of fuck is this? Pete explain??? iamdirtfarmer: lemme find out: I have a feeling, that if I knew you in real life, I’d probably have the biggest crush on you. You seem like you have everything I like in a guy. That’s all. thats just cause you haven’t met me, therefore you haven’t seen me drink. i feel like you might actually be horrified. but thank you regardless. lemme find...
Two words regarding last night: oy vey. Now I need to work clean up.
The Cure/The Curse
I’ve decided to throw a monkey wrench into the mix. Tomorrow we begin work on a brand spankin’ new song, one I wrote yesterday. It’s a bit like an industrial waltz. I’m going to (for the time being) skip the others on the list because I want to challenge myself and everyone else a bit and because I think it might fit a bit better in a set. The lyrics aren’t too...
To clarify, my response to @sonbot: I am not a religious person. I am the farthest thing from a religious person. My church is irreverence. I feel no real need disabuse the happy “sheep” (not my word, see previous post) of their notion that there is a heavenly father looking down on us, rewarding and punishing us for our moral tenacity. Still, no human being born of this earth gets a...
The Gauntlet Has Been Thrown
So apparently @sonbot is set to RT anything posted about Jesus. Therefor it is my solemn duty to say the most terrible, horrible things about Jesus Christ as I can possibly conjure up. I will do one a day for several days until I get tired of debasing your flimsy, shallow god. Ahem. Here we go: I date-raped Jesus Christ. You should have seen what he was wearing. Little slut was asking for it. ...
Things I've Learned About Jesus From Living In...
“The crowd says, ‘follow us and fit in!’ Jesus says, ‘follow me and stand out.’” Huh. And to think all these years I thought worshiping Satan, the dark lord of the pit was the way to stand out. I was waaaaaaay off!
Things I've Learned About Jesus From Living In...
“We are the sheep of his hand.” Whatever the hell that means.
Can't Win Em All
Thinking back on myself as a youngster, I realize I’ve become more even-tempered and sedate as I age. I’m not entirely sure I think this is a good thing. I feel somewhat blunted, a safer person to be around and this seems… I don’t know. Maybe counter to what I thought I’d be. I don’t think I was ever a reckless youth, but maybe a bit more fearless and...
Greasy Altoona food finally catching up to me. I’m never eating again, or for at least 3 hours. Ugh.
Day 1 in Altoona: productive and a touch tiring. I like playing guitar all day (cue “I got blisters on me fingers”).
Listening to The Bens on the way to PA. Simple...
