this is what i want in life. some things are easily attainable, some are not.
i want a house. as in, not one that i'm renting, but one that i own. a modern house; open floorplan, exposed ductowrk, lots of concrete, steel, and glass. a house that's as eco-friendly as possible.
i want a bike. a good bike. and to be somewhere i can ride it, and not look like one of the yuppie fuckwads that come down from alexandria to ride on the roads near my house. really, i want my bike that i had in richmond that was stolen from me.
i want to have good friends near me. almost all the people i enjoy being around live too far away. and even the good friends i have close by are so busy and caught up with their own shit (which i understand).
i want a job i love, if i have to have a job. i know, that's at the top of everyone's mock-wishlist, and you'd think that work for a porn company would be a pretty lovable job, but whatever. it's fucking boring. i want to be an architect, the problem that's presented here is that all the good schools for said educational opportunities are far/in expensive cities. i can't exactly afford to go to school and live in san francisco. as much as i'd like to.
i want to be healthier. this one's pretty easy, i just need to quit being so fucking lazy. it also ties in with the bike thing, as i do indeed love to ride a bicycle. i've also thought of learning capoeira, but i don't know if i'd go through with that.
that's what i want, the condensed version at least.
todd's first fight is tomorrow night, and i really wanted to go, just to be there, but life gets in the way. a whole bunch of myfamily is coming into town this weekend, and monday is my grandmother's funeral. so you know, priorities.

Why is "hardcore" so lame now? Why does every fucking show around here have to be a fest? I wanted to see Dillinger Escape Plan, but didn't feel like seeing any of the 20 or so other bands that were playing (with the exception of Titan). I'd like to go to the 7 Angels 7 Plagues show, but only to see Light This City and Suicide Silence. Not the 12 other bands.
Seriously, fucking knock it off. These shows, these kids, these bands... that's why I don't go to shows anymore. There's nothing worth seeing, and if by some small miracle there is a band worth seeing, said band is lumped on to a
show fest with 400 other bands.
I'm sick of this shit. It's absurd.
Here's what I want to see, right now (in no particular order):
To The Lions
That's it. 5 bands. Remember those kind of shows?
These fucking wishy-washy "hardcore" kids won't go to a show like that, though. Because there's not enough bands. There's not enough time to use the fucking dance floor like a god damn runway, showing off their cool new haircuts, or sweaters, or fingerless gloves, or whatever the fuck these assholes are calling cool now.
R.I.P. hardcore in Virginia.
**edit: I'm not saying those 5 bands are the only bands I'd like to see, so don't get your panties in a bunch. Just saying that's a hypothetical show I'd love to go to immediately, if not sooner.**

Wu-Tang Clan is far better than you will ever be.
ringworm - "justice replaced by revenge": uhm, amazing. duh.
requiem - "storm heaven": fucking incredible music from ex memebers of catharsis.
the spectacle - "i, fail": euro dudes playing awesome spazzy, political metal.
as i lay dying - "shadows are security": you already know.
through the eyes of the dead - "bloodlust": not to take anything away from the music (which is awesome), but the artwork RULES.
renee heartfelt - "magdalene": if you don't like this, i hope gerbils eat your head.
conducting from the grave - "trials of the forsaken": awesome AWESOME metal from sacramento. 3 of the current members of with passion.
so, with passion stayed with us for the last 2 nights, and we had an awesome time. erica and i missed the show in hagerstown with soilent green due to the fact that the time/traffic combo would have made our trip there take like 3 hours. no way we would have made it on time.
last night was the show at jaxx with soilent green, decapitated, hypocrisy, and fucking NILE. got there in time to hear with passion's last two songs. while we were standing outside in line. RAD. stuck around for a little bit of decapitated's set. i would have liked to see soilent green and nile, but i can only take so much of metal shows. i really think they should be like two bands at most. oh well.
soilent green had amazing shirts, but of course i had no cash. one of them had a rad design on the front with the band name that said "hurricane katrina catastrophe response team" up top, and "new orleans anti-terrorism defense" on the bottom. the back had a fleur de lis with two rifles next to it that said "defend our city", and on the bottom of the back it said "you loot we shoot". incredible. that band is amazing, i wish we would have seen them, but oh well.
i love when those dudes come through, they're such nice guys. we got to finally meet the 3 new guys, super fun. we're gonna try to get out to sacramento sometime to hang out/see them play in their hometown. they were kinda bummed out about always getting booked on metal tours, as opposed to more "metalcore" shows. the long-hairs like to heckle them. that and they don't really listen to too much straight up metal. and the last two tours have been with nile and deicide. jeeeeeeeeeeeeesus.
missed the titan show tonight because there was no way i could get there in time, which sucks. i really wanted to be able to get out to it and support my homie. soon enough though. hmmm... i need to book titan and with passion. yes.
