That Song
Framed Alkaline Trio LP's and a night alone
05/14/09 at 09:46 PM by prefix-core
I finally cave and hung my framed Alkaline Trio's Goddamnit LP back up on the wall above my bed. It may seem insignificant, but it was in the way when we would sit and watch a movie. Things are oh-so-slowly beginning to fall "back into place," the way they were before she arrived roughly a year and two months ago. And I don't like the way it feels.

That being said? Today was a better day. I was able to fill-in the gaps of this coming weekend. A huge victory, considering the excessive alone time and resulting over-thinking that last weekend left me with. I'll still be spending a bit of time all by my lonesome, but at least I'll be out of the house.

Friday: Drinks with some friends, followed by Drag the River and Joey Cape.
Saturday: My little brother graduates college. I'm fuckin' proud of that li'l guy.
Sunday: Lunch with friends in the city, followed by Pennywise and Big B.

I need to keep this up. A few random, music-oriented notes:

1.) Green Day's new album just downloaded from iTunes. I'll be picking up a hard copy on my lunch break and listening at some point whilst reading the lyrics. I'm very much looking forward to this.

2.) Caleb Lionheart is a solid band. They're very much in the same vein as Set Your Goals, Fireworks, and New Found Glory. Big hooks, solid lyrics, and a vocalist that doesn't whine.

3.) The dual male/female vocal harmonies at the end of Frank Turner's "To Take You Home" make me happy. My copy of the Frank Turner/Austin Lucas Under the Influence split finally shipped!

The holiday has been cancelled.

I cancelled the ferry ride to Martha's Vineyard. I nixed the hotel reservations. Part of me feels guilty. It was her Valentine's Day present, after all. But there's not much I can do about it now. She's gone, time to start cleaning up the pieces and living my life.

These things happen. And now I have an extra $390 in my bank account. Not that retail therapy is capable of fixing a broken heart, but it might help a smidge. Any suggestions as to how it could get spent?

In better news? I was able to pick-up a trio of Green Day tickets today. General admission "pit" tickets for the Boston show. I am beyond stoked for this show. I can't wait. And the new album drops Friday. I've been holding off on listening to it. Hopefully it's worth the wait, and hopefully it makes me forget my problems for an hour or so.

May 15th can't come soon enough.

There's quite a bit of doubt surrounding this release. But I can't lie: I'm beyond stoked for this album. While I'm definitely a bit biased, the leaked demo was a solid track, "Know Your Enemy" works great for what it is, and the b-side "Lights Out" reminds me of a brighter version of Insomniac tracks. I have high hopes.

And I will not be listening to anything other than b-sides or singles prior to the album's release. It will be a struggle. But hey, we all have our own little goals that help us get through the day and feel accomplished, right?

For me, these goals are usually in the vein of suppressing anxiety, not staying late on a Friday, avoiding calories and excessive musical purchases, attempting to find some friends in this hell hole of a hometown...

Let me have this one little victory. We all need 'em. Last night sucked. I really need one...

Lights out, here comes the night,
As the darkness falls over the light
Lights out, there goes the day
And this fear that comes won't go away
And I'm losing track of time
In the corners of my mind
And I'm living out my private suicide

Lights out, I lost myself
In the space between heaven and hell
Lights out, finding my way
Till I waste my time losing the way

And I'm losing track of time
In the corners of my mind
And I'm living out my private suicide

Green Day is back!

Not that they ever really went anywhere, but with all the Blink love going on around these parts, I feel the need to post an overzealous blog.

The wait for a new album is coming to a close. New music from the band who have left a lasting impression on my life over the years. I'm curious to see what they come up with next. I really can't wait. I'm overflowing with excitement.

"American Idiot" had a major impact on me. It was the perfect album at the point in my life during which it was released. It was exactly what I needed to hear. It was a reflection of my thoughts, my fears, and my anxieties at the time. About relationships, friendships, and the world around me. Or maybe I'm just an overanalyzing douchebag who reads into things too much.

As for that Blink-182 thing? It's cool, I guess. They just haven't left a big impression on me over the years, I guess.
