Don't hold back, let go what keeps you down
Don't hold back, let go what keeps you down

I don't want to bore people with the various epiphany's I have during my life, especially since most of the time they are common sense to the general public. But tonight I found that I make excuses a lot of the time. When I feel like there's going to be difficulty in any type of endeavor then I just use that as an indicator that maybe I shouldn't be putting any effort into it. I blame imagined parental disapproval, or fear of the unknown most of the time on me not striving towards the desires of my heart. I often confuse selfish desire with honest aspiration.

Well, enough of that. I'm taking a small step tonight. Even if it's a small thing that was always on my mind, and even if it really won't make a difference. At least I'll be doing it. And I'll be doing it for the right...[read more]

Sounds interesting. I grew up in NC, and we had a pretty good indie scene in the 90's, Superchunk, Polvo, and Archers of Loaf. I wasn't really around to appreciate them, but I got into them about the time they were all breaking up. And we're starting to get a good indie scene now with bands like The Rosebuds, Love Language, Des Ark, Annuals, Avett Brothers, Bowerbirds, I Was Totally Destroying It, Hammer No More the Fingers, Schooner, Fin Fang Foom. But in the 00's it was all fucking metal and pop punk in NC. Beloved, Between the Buried and Me, Glass Casket, Farewell, Secret Lives of the Freemasons, Sullivan, Monday in London, Some of them dissolved, some of them are in their 30's getting fat from beer and trying to score with 16 year olds because none of them really "made it" past marginal success. Even BTBAM have day jobs, and they are probably one of the biggest bands that I used to see when I was 16 and going to my first shows at the local skatepark. The underground hip-hop scene is pretty big here, but I'm not into much hip-hop. I would love to move somewhere else, like Atlanta or Portland. St. Louis to Toronto is a pretty awesome transition though. Freakin' Neil Young, Broken Social Scene, Rush, Crystal Castles, Holy Fuck, man, there are too many to name. I would love to visit, I hear it's beautiful. What made you decide to move there?

Originally from there so school was cheaper. To be fair I'm not much for Canadian music, although I know I should be freaking out over Metric and the like. I'm still a sucker for metal and pop-punk and emo.
