A Sailor's Journal
Always Summer
05/21/12 at 11:49 PM by billyboatkid
I can't explain how excited I am for the new Spill Canvas record and the new Yellowcard record. Along with many others that we will be getting this year. It's a great year for new music in my eyes. A lot of my favorite bands are releasing albums. And so far I couldn't be more stoked from what I've heard.

The songs that The Spill Canvas have released so far are excellent and Gestalt comes out tonight. It's already past midnight, but I'm guessing that's Pacific time. I know it's gonna be absolutely amazing. One of my favorite bands.

Now as for Yellowcard. Their new single is absolutely badass as hell. Super catchy. Love the vocals and lyrics and everything. The melody and chorus are killer. I'm actually listening to it again for the 5th or so time as I write this. I absolutely loved When You're Through Thinking Say Yes, but already this song as me more hyped than I was for that album. I feel like this is gonna be Ocean Avenue's little brother, but just as huge and amazing as that album came to be for many people. They're back and I can't wait to hear it in it's entirety. Especially that song with Patrick Stump from Fall Out Boy and the one with all the guest singers.

Getting me even more excited to see them on Warped Tour this year. One of the bands I'm looking forward to seeing most.

I'm sure I'll post my impressions and thoughts on TSC later and probably Yellowcard at some point.

Got my ticket for this years Warped Tour.

I thought last year was gonna be my last, but I couldn't pass it up this year. Wayyyyyy too many bands that I would love to see. Totally worth the 40 bucks.

Can't fucking wait.

Especially with all the new music coming out this summer and year.

Fuck yes.

It's been a while since I've written a new blog. I mean I have I guess, but an actual one. Lot's been going on lately which is good.

Killed all my finals so I'm on track to graduate next year. Pretty sure I got straight A's which is awesome. Just waiting on one last grade.

Other than that I just bought Rob's and my tickets to Washington D.C. to go see the last third of our trifecta haha. Our best buddy Devan. Haven't seen him since after my first year of college, well actually he came into town one other time, but it was very brief. He now is married and has a two year old at the ripe old age of 22. He always loved to jump the gun on life, but I love him like a brother. So we are going out there for a week. Should be another awesome adventure just like going to Montana was. Perfect way to start the summer. Really stoked to see my best bud. To get away for a bit. Especially somewhere brand new.

Saw The Avengers at midnight the other night with a bunch of people. Awesome as expected.

Super stoked for all the new music coming out in the near future. Especially the new Spill Canvas album. The two new songs they've released have already topped my expectations and made up for their last few releases.

I've been having the best week and month and then I am cleaning my room.. and what do I find.. her 7 page letter.. Talking about soul mates and about what we had gone through last year.. Not even a year has passed and look at the situation she's in. Ridiculous. Especially after what was written in that letter and many others. Oh well I just put it in a safe place..

Oh YEAH! Super fucking ecstatic for Warped Tour this year. The lineup is outrageous. Gonna probably be the best one I've ever been too.

I have a lot more to say, but I guess I'll just save it for another blog!

Welp tonight was super sweet. Me and my buddy where both finally done with our finals.
So we decided to start drinking about 5, play some CoD. Then eat some pizza and watch American Idol. Then drank a little more, rolled to the movies and caught Taken. Which is a pretty fun movie if I do say so.
The perfect buzz all night and it was just really fun.

We finally decided on a trip. We are gonna fly over to Chicago and catch Warped tour and a Yankee's Vs. White Sox game. Even though I prefer the Red Socks. I'll take it.
We wanted to go on a fun trip to somewhere new and do new things. Sounds like it could be a really fun vacation.

*So if anyone is from Chicago or has been there give me some ideas on what to do please. I would really appreciate it. Like good places to eat or go. Also if you know of any good concerts or events going on during July 30th - August 4th. Thanks a lot.*

SO stoked to finally see You, Me and Everyone We Know! They're playing the chicago Warped Tour. Should be a blast.

"Mother Lover"


Ps. The new JT and Andy Samberg digital short is fucking hilarious. Check it out on hulu.

Pss. I also finally found a hat that I wanted and purchased it off Karmaloop. Soo stoked to finally be getting it. That is all. haha
