Ever So Sweet, Sideways
05/31/11 at 09:59 AM by Miss Heartcore
A couple of weeks ago, I took the advice of a friend and decided to attend this for the price of $10




The lineup of Waking Lights and Mansions was absolutely perfect. Mansions had an am explosion, but recovered nicely and put on a great set.

As for Ace, I've been on the fence about Gold Rush. In the first few album listens, I was only impressed with 2 or 3 songs. Fortunately it only took an awesome show for me to finally embrace it with open arms.

The setting was extremely intimate with only Ace onstage playing all the instruments to a delay system so it would sound like a full band. The crowd was full of die-hards, singing nearly every word to every song. Several guys were openly hitting on him and/or shouting inappropriate things, including a typical "Free Bird" request, all of which Ace rebuttaled in the most awesome way possible. The entire show felt like an episode of MTV's Unplugged and I loved every moment of it. In the end, even Ace said it was one of the most fun shows he's played in forever. I agree, Ace, I agree.

Someone taped "Ever So Sweet" which perfectly captures the feel of the entire night in one song. Enjoy.




Also, he encore'd with "Sunday Drive"




If it's not too late for you, definitely check out this tour. Great set-list and probably the most intimate side of Ace you'll get aside from him playing in your living room.

CHARLIE: Only you could gay up having sex with two women.

ALAN: Says the guy wearing an apron, holding the curdled Holandaise sauce.

CHARLIE: SO, you ADMIT that it's Holandaise sauce.

Put on your f*king Flannel Keith Buckley.
11/24/08 at 03:56 PM by Miss Heartcore
So, when the opportunity arose to get a photo op with Keith Buckley, I was stoked.

Dude walks in and is told he needs to take a picture with me and my friend by his Tour Manager.

He turns around and he's wearing a hoodie.

"Are you still wearing your flannel shirt under there?" - Me

"No, I took it off, it was so fucking sweaty." - Keith

"Oh wtf." - Me

"We need the flannel shirt, it's key!" - MegOhio

"What? I don't wannnna put it on, it's soooo sweaty." - Keith

Sigh.

Let's just take the picture:

Epic Weekend was Epic
11/17/08 at 08:07 AM by Miss Heartcore


Things that I've wanted for two years became reality.
Things that I feared for two years became reality.

I talked too much
Drank too much
Sang too loud
Traveled too far
and probably could have smiled a little bit more.

I witnessed the best and worst in people.
I saw the worst of myself.

My mind and heart are still racing from all that's happened.

It's time for some change.
Let's make it happen.



I'm ready to take that big step
Start tearing off the layers I put up
Or is it too late to be
Anything but what I am
Identify the problem
Now let's see
If we can fix anything.

Fire Away

Don't cover your eyes if you can't see

Stand on the ground
And get out of this weather
It's something I know you need
And what makes it alright
Doesn't make it all better
What slips through our hands, we keep


----------------------------------------------------------------
The summer that this album came out, I provided some people on The Tooth and Nail Tour with a place of shelter, dinner, and laundry facilities for a couple of days.
It ultimately became one of the best weeks of the summer.

Now looking back on these lyrics, it's currently the only thing that makes sense in all of this mass confusion that is my life.

Tonight I wrote 4 different blog entries tonight and all of them ultimately were deleted.
I can't decided what's worth mentioning
What's worth keeping to myself
What's worth pursuing
and what's worth sitting back and waiting for.

Every sporadic and fun moment is ultimately counteracted by bad news and vice versa.

Yesterday my dad lost his job.
I reacted by running off to stand among 3500 moshing kids with one of my best friends--only then to encounter a stranger with a mischievous smile.
Amidst the chaos, he provided some calmness.
He laughed and sang and poked fun.
I smiled.
He took down my number.
It reminded me of those moments after the dances in high school.
I'll give him three days (Cher Horowitz time).

For now, I'll let it ride.

Anton, you missed it.
09/07/08 at 10:09 PM by Miss Heartcore
Taking a break from my real life for the moment, I've been playing "Red Hands" by The Dear Hunter non-stop.

The first time I saw this song played was at The School of Rock on the last day of their tour. All the bands jumped onstage to join in.

I instantly fell in love with this song.

Anton, I know you skipped the boat, but you shouldn't have skipped this!



Here's the real song (ignore the weird Political Pitch on the screencap)



Even if you'd never strayed from me,
I'd question your fidelity.
There'd always be a shroud of suspicion
And my heart's a liability
With your hands maroon, so freshly red,
You'd wrap your lips around my neck.
Try and force to love the thought of me.
Simple motions make me ill.

Was it bitter when you tossed and turned
On an undercover mattress?
Did it feel so good? Hope it felt so good.
Don't know what I'd do if you lost sleep over little old me.
He's so much better.
They're all much better.
Take off your sweater, your shoes, and your shirt, and get to work.

Maybe this is just a work of art.
Scripted players in a play of lust.
Hope the end is well worth waiting for
Everything you wished there'd be

Was it bitter when you tossed and turned
On an undercover mattress?
Did it feel so good? Hope it felt so good.
Don't know what I'd do if you lost sleep over little old me.
He's so much better.
They're all much better.
Take off your sweater, your shoes, and your shirt, and get to work.

Oh my god, what have I done?
Now my darling, put your clothes back on.
Oh my god, what have I done?
Now my darling, put your clothes back on.

Cause you can't be caught red-handed if you're not red-handed.
My darling, if I ever said those words to you,
I was pulling out my heart so I could pin it to my sleeve
On display for you to see, I'm on display.

Because you can't be caught red-handed if you're not red-handed.
My darling, I would never say those words to you.
I was pulling out my heart so I could pin it to my sleeve
On display for you to see, I'm on display.

Oh my god, what have I done?
Now my darling, put your clothes back on.
Oh my god, what have I done?
Now my darling, put your clothes back on.
Now my darling, put your clothes back on.

(Cause you can't be caught red-handed)
Oh my god, what have I done?
(If you're not red-handed)
Now my darling, put your clothes back on
(I would never say those words to you)
Oh my god, what have I done?
(I was pulling out my heart so I could pin it to my sleeve)
Now my darling put your clothes back on.
(On display for you to see, I'm on display)

Oh my god, what have I done?
Now my darling put your clothes back on

Where There's Love, There's Liars.
04/16/08 at 08:00 PM by Miss Heartcore
Down I went to the "Old Office" room
Open the doors
It's almost pitch black
The crowd is thick
It's hot as hell...
(I'm pretty sure we're only one level above it at this point.)

Free show at the Knitting Factory?
Totally worth it.
I'll take a cd,
here's a $5 tip.
Thanks for the night.




Sin Repent Repeat
Well Oh no! What have I done now? Iíve really done it this time, and I donít think Iím gettiní out. This storyís gettingí old, because it always ends the same. There lies the smoking gun, and Iím the only one to blame.

Yeah, you can try and try to get it right but sometimes you just canít get it.
Yeah, you can try and try to get it right but sometimes you just canít get it right.

I tried, I tried, this time, to stop playing this game, because I know Iíll never win with ĎSin, Repent, Repeat.Ē And Iíve been here so many times before, but no matter how hard I try I just canít get right!

Well here I am again, in over my head. I had the best intentions, but they just lead to all this tension. I didnít mean for you to ever feel this way. But the damage has been done and I can never find the right words to say!


Truth.
Story of my life.

I Don't Like THIS Song At All.
04/09/08 at 02:11 PM by Miss Heartcore
THIS SONG
was beautifully depressing as an instrumental track.



The lyrics that were later released turned it into something tragically disturbing in my mind.

Yet, so many fans love it.


What's interesting is that I always loved
THIS SONG:


And it turns out that most of the other fans do too

It's the only song besides "Semi-Charmed Life" where I know all the lyrics, beats, and pauses exactly to a T.
In fact, there are few songs besides "SCM" and "MDB" that I know every bit of, in and out.


The end of April can't come soon enough.
Hopefully this time I'll have company.

Take me with You
03/21/08 at 02:37 PM by Miss Heartcore
Today's my last day working on NoFX's Backstage Passport.
Moving on to Vh1's The Fabulous Life: Celebrity Baby Boom.
Fat Mike will be in the office on Monday...I decided not to pack up my desk so I coordinate a random sighting.

I've been thinking about Bamboozle Left.
My friend asked me to go...and I wholeheartedly considered it.
I still am actually...I can leave work an hour early and hop on the plane.

I really just want to see You.
The last time I saw you play was February...maybe January.
I haven't seen the rest of the group play since the end of December.
It breaks my heart a little more each day.

So many good bands in one place...just the May Bamboozle isn't enough.
Please, take me with you.
I could use an escape to the west coast.
I miss all of your faces.

Come back soon...

music saves?
02/06/08 at 09:48 PM by Miss Heartcore
let me tell you something about music.

it's personal
sometimes too personal.

in the last six months (at least) i've felt myself shape shifting and evolving in all ways
and i turn to my music to protect my heart that's so easily broken by every day troubles.

the problem is...

it's become too personal.


every time i flip through my cds
or scroll through my ipod,
everything has a memory.

whether it's a song that i played in the past to heal my wounds
or a song shared between friends or romance
or a memory of a show
or just an exchange between the artists,

everything has something attached to it
if not a song specifically, than the band as a whole.

how can i continue to heal
how can i escape
when everything reminds me of something else?
