WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO SHUT YOU OUT?
Hey ladies and dudes.summer has been kick ass. I really do have all of the best friends a person can have. We're doing the video stuff here at www.Falloutstudios.com like nobody's business. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was a great movie. The island was just okay, it was too long and thats what killed it. Terrell Owens is going to be in eagles camp. Thats fucking awsome.Umm what else, i really want to jam with some people. i haven't played music with anyone in a while. okay thats all for now.
Oh man, I've been busy lately. I've had a lot of papers and homework to do for school, but other then that I've been busy with a lot of other stuff. After Spring Break, I hung out with Evan because he was home, and thats always fun.I am still doing the usual of hanging out with Kevin, Borg, and Evan Brandise. Thats what we do, we hang out.haha. Sunday we did another video shoot with "From A Second Story Window." Those guys are full effect films bro's.haha I love hanging out with them. I hung out with this girl Melissa from Jackson on Saturday night.She's an amazing person. I finished editing my first video all by myself. It's the Early November playing "I Want To Hear You Sad." they were also cool dudes when we met them. They were so thankful when we shot video for them. I would love to shoot video for them again. I saw the fully finished Snapcase video. It looks so fucking good it's out of control. It was their final show. It's awsome the singer Darrel calls here every few weeks to just talk about music and whats going on. It's cool to aquaintances like that.Thats why it's also cool that we are friends of Chris and Carl from nora. I mean with out Carl we wouldn't have gotten through to Misery Signals and the rest of Ferret Music as easily. hmmm what else. Folly, those guys are amazing as well. We need to shoot more video with them as well. It's getting warm out and you know what that means. Hanging out at the beach playing beach volleyball as well. This year we have more people that want to play. I am also shocked that I found bamboozle tickets to late in the game. They sold out weeks ago, but i was able to aquire some so i am all set for all three days.It's going to be good to see bands like
FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND
I CAN MAKE A MESS
IT DIES TODAY
MOTION CITY SOUNDTRACK
A STATIC LULLABY
FURTHER SEEMS FOREVER
HIDDEN IN PLAINVIEW
HOT ROD CIRCUIT
THE EARLY NOVEMBER
THE SPILL CANVAS
THE STARTING LINE

Well, Well, Well. I believe it's been three months now. I haven't written in this bitch in a while. I am 20 years old now. I finally figured what I am going to do with my life. I am going to do editing and video. It's the best thing ever. I'll finish out my schooling at Brookdale for it and that'll be it. It's such an amazing job.I got so many jobs that you'd think I've done this for years. It's amazing. Doing video for bands is the best thing ever. When I was in a band, I had zero band/record conections. Now I have ties at Blackmarket,Ferret Records, Trust Kill Records, and starting some with Drive-Thru.It's mostly due to Nora. If it wasn't for Nora I don't think any of this would be as easy as it has been for us. It was so cool to go to the Starting line/Early November Show last night walk passed the entire line, and walk get in on the Early November guest list. It was so cool. It's cool to have connections. I can't wait until tomorrow night. It's going to be the best party ever at Evans tomorrow. It's awsome to see Paul, Borg, Pesh, Evan D, Evan B, Mikey, Stacy, Moreen, Christie, Jess A, Jamie, and a few others that I forgot, but it's great to see those people again. Well thats all I have in mind to say right now.

YOU ARE HARDCORE! YOU AREN'T AN EFFING POSER! You
know what hardcore's about and you are here for
the music. You go to shows and support your
scene and try to change society but you aren't
lame. We need more of you around. How Hardcore Are You? brought to you by Quizilla
Have you ever gotten to the point in your life where you try to figure out what your going to do with your life? I am at that point right now. I just started college and it's cool and everything and my jobs not that bad. I am not saying I have a bad life, but I just feel I should be doing something with it. I don't have a girlfriend, which sucks and it doesn't at the sametime. I feel I am not supposed to have a girlfriend really. No matter how nice I am to the girls I fall for, I am just their best friend. Maybe I just don't have what it takes to be someones boyfriend or maybe I am just such a loser I am not worthy of being any girls boyfriend. Which kind of sucks. I like having bestfriends, but a relationship is cool if not better. To have someone you love greatly love you back is the best part of it. I am beginning to ask myself if I am ever going to feel that again. The only thing about that left I can say is those famous words "don't worry it'll happen, you just have to wait for the right time, but it'll happen." I am also trying to get my shit together for the band that Colin, Shawn, and myself are starting. I am not sure what it'll be like, but it'll be fun and new to us whatever it is. We have had talks about the way we're writting songs and where we'll be playing. Colin used to be in a band called Thompson Cross Section. They used to play Philly all the time with Folly and some other big acts in clubs and churches. He has the same ideas about playing shows as I do, which is sweet. I can't wait until we get that started. There's a Dillinger Escape Plan, Everytime I Die, and Misery Signals show coming up. I can't miss that. All those bands are amazing. I met the singer of Misery Signals in the crowd at Hellfest, he was a super cool dude. We have a video of them we did on the site, it's awsome. I have also heard the new Converge, Hot Water Music, and some of the new Jimmy Eat World record. The new Converge- "You Fail Me" is amazing. There is no way you can't like that record. Hot Water Music- "The New What Next", it's not bad so far, I have heard it once through, but I want to hear it a few more times before I say it's really good. The Jimmy Eat World- "Futures" album, I have heard 6 tracks out of 11. The song "23" is really amazing. The rest of the record is really good but it's not going to be a commercial success. The songs aren't all poppy like the "Bleed American" album. Reggie and the Full Effect is writting a new album I am wondering if it's going to be better then "Under The Tray". "Under the Tray" isn't a bad album, but it's just not their best work. Well I am all talked out it's been a while since I updated my journal and wrote this much in it.
Well it's my last full week off from school. I am ready for school. It's going to be fun to go 4 days a week. I have off every Monday, thats right automatic 3 day weekend. It's awsome. I got my books. I just got back from Long Beach Island. It was amazing. It felt good to get away from Lowes, Manalapan, and get paid to just relax. Paid vacations are awsome. While I was there I played 4 games of Mini golf with Jenn, I am 2 and 2. I went on the boat a lot. I have also just bought the show "Dead Like Me" on dvd. It's the best show ever. I've been watching that a lot lately. Well I have to be back in work in a half hour. It's been 11 days since I stepped foot in there. It's going to suck, well maybe not some days it's fun. Well I am going to go.

Well it's been a while since I updated this bitch. I thought whats the point of writting in something that no one reads. Any case Warped Tour was kick ass. The best act was probably The Bled. I got to meet one of the guitar players and the bass player. I got my picture with the bass player. The Vandals were just as good. I got my picture with Dave, Joe, and Warren and got their new cd signed by them. They were the first big band I ever saw and also the first band I ever saw on a Warped Tour, that was more then 5 years ago. Nofx were very funny and entertaining yet again. Bad Religion was great too. A few weeks ago I went to Hell Fest. I went to the Sunday show. It took 2 hours to get into the damn place, but we got in right before Misery Signals went on. They were amazing. We did a video for them a month ago and they were even better this time. Their new cd is so good. Converge and The Dillinger Escape Plan did not disappoint either. They were awsome. I had a chance to film that hole weekend but I had to decline to work one day at Lowes. well thats all for now.

My weekend started Thursday night. Friday I got rear ended by an old couple after i picked up my check. It was funny because i was completely stopped and he didn't even tap his break to slow down. So i get out and there was nothing done to my car. so i go to the mall and buy Black Flag- Damaged on cd and Minor Threat their hole discogrophy. Then later that night we did video for In Spite Of. I was going to get paid $100.00 for their set which was a half hour. At the end of their set they paid us and i got $120.00 so i got an extra $20.00. Saturday I went to work and when I got home I went to a party which was fun. I met some cool people. Frank kept smacking my arm so i told him you slap me again i am beating the fuck out of you. Sure enough Frank slapped me and i started punching the shit out of him but stopped after a few punches. Sunday I went to Long Beach Island and had fun at the beach. Then when I got home I went to play volleyball which was fun. Today I went to the mall and got a new watch. Then I went to see the Day After Tomorrow which was pretty good. Then I went to best buy and bought Club Dread and Independence Day on DVD. and that sums it up for my weekend.
