Memories Made In The Coldest Winter
Fuck You, Parmore
12/13/08 at 05:08 PM by hockeyguitar99
It took me a long time, but I finally grew out of you. Riot! finally became boring to me, and I stopped listening. This was around December of last year, right around when all of the girls caught on. I hadn't really thought or cared about them since. Recently I heard "Decode" and goddamnit. The song is everything I didn't want to love about Paramre, but did, amped up 1000 times. I can not get that song out of my head. If their next album is like this, I will have no choice but to listen.

Indie Cred = Out The Window

I'm going to go listen to Grizzly Bear and try and make myself feel better.

I again end this with, Fuck You, Paramore.

Also, I saw the new Jeffree Star thing at best buy today, lol.

EDIT: While I'm committing indie suicide, I love Panic At The Disco, ...Live In Chicago and Pretty.Odd. are both really, ridiculously good albums, just because they released a generic dance-pop-punk-emo thing doesn't mean they didn't release a hell of an album now.

The Score - Songs For A Halfway Home
12/12/08 at 11:06 AM by hockeyguitar99
I'm currently sitting around in my Adaptive P.E. class, listening to the fabulous new album by The Score. They'll be releasing (for free I believe), on December 20th. It's just a catchy rock album. Their EP, which I reviewed eariler this year, had a punk-ish feel, and with the polished production, that element is gone, but it's better that way. Definitely check this out if you have time.

Recently, a lot of, well, all of the staff members at highbeamreview.com (sans me) have decided to quit. We are currently looking for new people to contribute to the site. This will include writing reviews and posting news. There is no pay, but review writers will receive free promotional albums for listening. For anyone who is interested please e-mail me at highbeambrad@gmail.com. I hope to hear from a lot of you, somebody who's written before would be greatly preferred.

I Shouldn't Give Up This Easily...
12/08/08 at 10:38 PM by hockeyguitar99
Well, that mutual friend I mentioned in the last blog talked to her, and it was pretty clear to her that there was no real interest, even though that friend still wants me to push for it. She seemed to take it harder than I did, which was weird. It didn't really even phase me. That worries me to a certain extent because I used to be this outwardly emotional and honest person, and for whatever reason it didn't happen this time. Maybe I took the rejection harder than I thought, or maybe I'm looking for an answer where there shouldn't be a question. It almost feels weird being okay with this, but I'm glad that I didn't take it hard.

Here we go again...
12/08/08 at 12:06 AM by hockeyguitar99
Almost a month after a near mental breakdown due to a rejection, I'm back on my feet, and ready to play the game again. Even though it feels like a very short time after to me, I've accepted the fact that there was never anything there (A funny side note, one of my friends asked her out last week, got shut the fuck down, another one of my friends is probably gonna do it also, I put my money on him from the beginning, even over me, this kids got a shot) and I'm better from it. I probably won't fall that hard again, and I almost certainly won't get in so goddamn deep. I spent almost the entire day texting a mutual friend of a new girl that I'm thinking about. Maybe there will be something there, maybe there won't be, but I'm not going to be as vulnerable this time around.

As far as reviews go, I'm working on Russian Circles, Past Lives, Mogwai, Fucked Up, Johnny Foreigner, and one for Weezer's Pinkerton which is one of my favorite records of all time.

I'll update soon on both of these topics.

I'm really happy right now
11/18/08 at 02:38 PM by hockeyguitar99
So I'm come home frustrated from school because I hate school. I open up AP.net to find that my interview was posted as news. After it not being posted for a few days I gave up on it, but this is really cool. Yeah, it's totally lame that this made my day, but fuck it, I'm excited.

Also, You, Me, and Everyone We Know have made the best pop-rock ep this year. Fuck yes.

Forgive Durden Interview Posted!
11/15/08 at 09:15 PM by hockeyguitar99
I did the interview tonight, got home, and slaved over transcribing my recording so that I could have it up by tonight. It's around 2,000 words, but I think Dutton had some great things to say.

It's been a good day.
11/14/08 at 10:50 PM by hockeyguitar99
Sure, it's a week after she said no, and sure, I still try to avoid her at all costs, and sure, I still freak out at the prospect of talking to her. When she said hi to me yesterday, I was left speechless, but somehow mumbled out a slightly less than coherent reply. But, to be honest, I'm doing great. I've almost let the entire thing go, and she seems to just pretend that nothing ever happened, which might be for the best. I also got the new Right Away, Great Captain! record in the mail today along with the new Johnny Foreigner and The Seabellies. I have yet to listen to them, but I have really great expectations for the first two, don't really know what to expect from the third. Overall, I may be doing better than I was before.

Maybe thing aren't so bad after all
11/13/08 at 10:12 PM by hockeyguitar99
Aside from the fact that I started off this week borderline depressed, it's been a pretty okay week. My pre-orders didn't arrive, but I can live with that. I have an interview with Thomas Dutton on Saturday, and I'll be sending off my questions to both Danger Radio and NEEDTOBREATHE tomorrow or Saturday. I was able to finish both of my articles and my Sociology paper on time. And tonight, for the first time in weeks or maybe months, I'm going to sleep before 11:30. Sure, it sounds lame, but I've been up until 1:30 or later every night this week, and I am excited to just sleep.

Sociology Paper
11/12/08 at 09:48 PM by hockeyguitar99
I have a little over an hour to e-mail this to my teacher. It's due at 11:59 Central, and as of right now it's 10:45. I'm writing it on gay marriage and how they should approach getting it legalized. A summary of my opinion is very simple. They should approach it in the same manner as MLK did in his time. It worked then, and with a little modification it will work now. It doesn't take a genius to think of it, but it would probably take a genius to orchestrate it, or someone who just has an unbelievable amount of passion. Hopefully they will legalize this soon, it's really unfair.
