[ mood | cold ]

I'm really tired, so I'll try and recap the last 24 hours, or at least the amazing night, in breif.

Yesterday started out as a normal day, lounge around the house, sleep... yay! So around 5:30 David came over and picked me up where we proceeded to go on 495N to River Road and back into dc (all as a method to avoid traffic) Though there was a sligh confusion because of descrepencies on the mapquest map, we made it there at 6:11.

It had rained earlier in they day, and we were hoping for a nice, cool, DRY, evening. Well it was nice, and cool, but definently not dry. Around 6:30 it started to rain preety hard, so we stood under a tree, as did the other 30 people there at that time, with the exception of a few people. All of a sudden I see this Looney Tunes umbrella, and I'm like, oh thats probably Carni, and poof it was! I haven't seen carni since December. For those of you who dont know, Carni used to live really close to me, we went to school from 4th - 6th grade together, and every saturday after shul I'd head over to his house, across of from shul. We were the best of friends, seriously you couldn't separate us. So come 10th grade he moved to MD, and we kinda drifted apart from there, still friends, just we each made out own seperate lives... So back to the story...

So its raining soft, hard, soft hard, and of, so the first band is setting up but everythign is being covered in tarp, its an outdoor concert on an uncovered stage. So finally 7:30 comes, and the first band, named oddly enough, the Aquarium, starts to play. It was just a dorky dude and his electric organ and keyboard on top and a preety hot drummer gal. Despite my expectations, they seriously were preety good... So after the first song you hear this distorted crackle effect, all the while the drummer is beating away at her drums and you can see the water flying off it each time she hits. Well all of a sudden everyone comes to realize that the keyboard, is not purposly producing this distortion effect. Jason, the keyboardist/singer, had been playing his best under the tarp, but it was seriously raining, and the keyboard shorted out. So then he switched to the organ only, which seriously rocked. And luckly didn't short out. They played one or two more songs, he adlibed some funny lyrics about how it was his birthday, as it was, and how his keyboard was fucked and how it was seriously raining. So they got a big cheer, they were great sports and preety good imho. Jason stood up and slapped his drummer high five, and as he was leaning over, because it was so we, slipped and fell on top of the drums.

So next the main band is coming on, The Dismemberment Plan, this is there last concert in the USA ever. So they start setting up slowly, and the rain gets seriously much harder. So now David and I are both drenched, and girls in white shirts and covering up their chests, well... with the exception of a few.

The time is now 7:47, after standing in the rain for 45 more minutes, freezing my ass off, (the tree didnt' offer much coverage for this rain), I started getting really really cold, but I was determined to wait it out, I mean hell hypothermia isn't that bad, is it? :-D.

D-plan came out a couple times and told us how this was "fucked up" and "not a real concert with it raining" and how they would find a way to give us another concert because of the rain. But the posibility still lingered that they would have to cancel for the evening.

So about 8:30 the rain let up, into a light drizzle and d-plan came on. The show seriously rocked. They were amazing on stage, funny, and energetic even though they were cold and wet too.

The lead singer came off as a jackass though. He made multiple comments about the aquarium's keyboard being fucked. The first time it was funny, but progressivly it got worse, and in retrospect, I'm kinda annoid at him, although he thanked the aquarium, who was long gone at that time I think, for sticking out in the rain, he made such obnoxious comments as "hahahah their keyboard is fucked, and they won't ever be able to perform again, because they can't afford a new one because they'll never make any money."

Other than that the concert,which could only go on for an hour due to permit restrictions for public performance after 9:30, seriously rocked. I am glad I waited it out.


So David and I get back in the car, turn the heat up full blast, mind you its like 80 degrees outside. And were still cold as hell. So I get home take a hot shower and snuggle in some blankets, exhausted.

I wake up this morning, knowing I had a sinus infection, as I felt it the day before and was just too lazy to goto the doctor at that time, and went to the doctor, for a whole 3 minute appt, and a 57 minute wait.

AHHHHHHHHH... 15 buck copay for them to tell me what I already know and for them to write me a perscription for an antibiotic on paper..

Oh well, so I came home and went back to bed and woke up around 2.


And now I'm here.

I have found my new favorite sandwitch (other than hoagies.) I discovered it a couple nights ago. I was really hungry and was making myself a penut butter and jelly sandwitch and couldn't find the jelly. Where the jelly normally was, a jar of marchino cherries sat. So I put some marchino cherries, which I already loved alone, on the sandwitch. Voila! I love peanut butter and marchino cherry sandwiches.

Just thought I'd let you know.

Just got home from the movies, saw Charlies Angels 2 with Sarah. The movie was cute, but not even remotely as good as the original, most of the stunts were preety stupid and not believable at all, the term suspending disbelief doesnt' even cover that.

So I woke up today, per usual, and got on the computer, also per usual :-D. After reading some articles online about encryption usuage in file sharing and some more interesting articles, I came across the EFF's website, a site i frequently visit, but I also came across the EFF's guide on "How Not To Get Sued by the RIAAA for File-sharing" I suggest you all read it, its an interesting piece.

Moreover, I believe this letter accurately portrays the current situation as well as many of my opinions.

So I turned off the computer EARLY last night and went to "bed", though I tossed and turned for like 2 hours. Finally sleep came, and poof, I woke up again soon after, and the cycle repeated. So 5:45 am, I didn't even know 5:45am existed... until today. I get up and get the paper and eat some challah, I just figure I won't be able to sleep anymore... So come 6:30 I'm tired as hell still and figure, oh well, try and sleep some more, your going to have to get up in 2 hours for shul, so I'm sleeping and finally wake up around 11am, to realize, the family isn't going to shul!?! My mom was going to wake me up this morning, as I have yet to setup my alarm clock (lazy me :-) ).

Come 12pm (as I'm laying in bed, my mom comes in and dumps one of my suitcases of shit that I brought home from JMU and had yet to unpack... AHHH!!

So I'm up, I decide I'll go out to drews house, but now I'm dizzy and tired, so I didn't go.

And now were caught up to now.

David had asked me like a week ago if I wanted to goto some concert... I said sure... and forgot totally about it... no offense to david at all, I was simply in and out of consciousness for the next week with my sleeping habits, but we'll get to that later.

So today David IM's me and asks if I want to go, and it all comes back to me! Now I don't really know the band, but I say yes, its quality time with my bro david. So I sit back and dl some mp3's of the band from their website.... preety good.. The band is The Dismemberment Plan, its a free concert at Fort Reno, so who can complain? But their actually quite good, hard to describe, kinda a mix between eclectic emo rock with a radiohead taste. Good though, catchy.

So back to sleeping habits... this has been my schedule since I got home from college. Go to bed late, say 2am - 3am, wake up 2pm - 3pm. It may not sound bad, but its getting progressivly worse. The next day I'll goto bed a bit later and get up much later. I predict by next week I'll be going to bed at 9am and getting up and 10pm or so.

So, lets get to some more random interesting news... about 1.5 months ago I was at Drew's house, and it was wet and I was pulling out of the driveway and a car was parked close by, *stupid depth perception*, so a little fender bender. To make the story short, I exchanged information, and finally today they call back up with an estimate. Not too bad, but still, its almost 2 months later... AHHHH. Oh well, its all good, its a minimal amount and we can avoid insurance.

So now I'm sitting here on my arse, listening to music, speaking of which... I had a very interesting discussion last night with Jo about music, till like 2:30 am, I seriously did not want to go to bed, I was listening to so much good music and talking about music, oh it just doesn't get any beter. But my eyes started closing on me and my body said, hit the sack, you got a big day ahead of you, you know, sitting on the computer and listening to music and playing a little CS here and there. So I went to bed.

Scary scary day... the new MPAA ad came on while I was by the television... Ben Affleck really spoke to me... I'm utterly convinced that if you pirate movies your harming Janitor Joe working on the set... as hung would say to that, "VOODOO" (well thats what he would say in pool). My question is, why did Ben Affleck speak and not Janitor Joe? Doesn't Janitor Joe need the mulah anyways?

additionally, those who aren't recieving percentages of gross sales, aka the 1300 other people claimed to be working on the movie, doesn't piracy not directly effect their income? Yes it may effect the posibility of future movies being made, but the only salary it effects are those of the rich holywood actors, directors, producers, and other noblige.

Disclaimer: Those who know me know I do NOT support piracy in any manner, and anyone who says otherwise needs to hush hush.

A New Beginning [24 Jul 2003|12:48am]
Its been a long long time since I updated this relic.... so lets start with a little update for those of you who aren't familiar with me up to this point.

I just graduated High School in June and will be attending James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA as a Physics Major and a Materials Science minor. I actually spent the last month there taking a class and getting acostomed to the campus, it was a great experience overall.

Now back to the journal:

Sometimes I think, whats most important in this world? I've contemplated this much, especially with my 13 hours of sleep every day since I came back from JMU. It didn't really occur to me until a little while ago, but I can defintivly attribute my discovery to one person.

That one person at JMU made me realize the importance of a smile, its effect on people and how much it contributes to a collective. That person knows who she is and I thank her for that. A smile is one of those things that brightens a persons day, makes them feel special, and helps to create a calm friendly situation.

Over the years, I've never really focused on smiling, it generally was just a naturally occuring thing that depending on the day, either glimmered, or didn't appear at all. But now, I'm looking at life through my newfound smile. A smile the welcomes, greets, warms, and most of all, loves.

I truly encourage each and every one of you, to simple go out into the world and smile, it brightens your day, your attitude on life, and that of those who see it.

come.. join the smile club.
