welp, I decided that updating should only happen once a month. I think it's a GREAT idea. And if you don't, you're wrong. Because, as we all know, I'm right about everything. So.

Musically, I basically listen to Streetlight Manifesto on a daily basis. I swear, they're one of the best bands going. Check 'em out. Or ask nicely, and I'll hook you up with a few songs of theirs. Other than them, I'm still listening to the old favs: Catch 22, NOFX, Straight Outta Junior High, Reel Big Fish, etc. I'm waiting impatiently for the new Anti-Flag album to come out, as well as the new Catch 22 release. Both should be worth the money to buy 'em. I've heard the two tracks Anti-Flag put up on their site, and they both sound awesome. And I expect Catch 22 to offer some of the same, great ska that I've come to expect.

Band style. We have our first concerts coming up this month, and I don't think we're anywhere NEAR ready. But I always feel that way. In November, the Calvin College Wind Ensemble(I think?) is coming to perform with us. And give us sectionals on the various instruments. So that should be loads of fun.

School is making me happier and happier. In every single class I'm in, I'm doing extremely well. Quite a change from last year, and the previous years of my lack of motivation.

That sums it up, pretty much. p'z

My sister comes home tonight. Hoo-ray. I just got all the crap I need to learn to try out for IMEA, so that's always a fun thing. The last time I tried out for a district band, I made it no problem. I sure hope that happens again this year. Speaking of band, we're playing so many awesome pieces this year. Moorside, Caccia & Chorale, William Byrd, Festive Overture, and this REALLY awesome one called "Galop." OH! and this one called Scenes From "The Louvre" Man, I love band. And that's just Wind Ensemble. this year, I decided I'm going to be in every possible band. so I'm in Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band(the not-quite-as-Wind-Ensemble-band), Jazz Band, Pep Band, and Pit. Woohoo.

Other than band, school's going well. AP English is by far my favorite class. I just started reading The Power and the Glory for that class, and it's a great book. Go read it.

That's actually about it. P'z.

Hey, kids. Me and life have been gettin' along REALLY well lately. I'm currently watching the Packers completely rape the Lions. It's a great time.

So, yesterday(Saturday) morning, me and my dad left at around 5-ish for Iowa. It was time, again, for the annual Bullet Classic golf tourny we play in. Before we left, though, they told us it had been rained out. We still went, though, because it's always a blast going up to my aunt's house. They have the best dog in the world named Moose. He's like a 1 year old Lab, and he's the most playful thing in the world. So cute. So anyway, we went up to my dad/aunt's friend's house(the woman who holds the tournament every year) and there was a little gathering of the usual Bullet contestants. We sat around for the while, shootin' the breeze, all the good stuff. Went to dinner at some random Iowa place, then went back to my Aunt's to watch Bowling For Columbine. I'm telling you, that's probably the best movie I've seen in years. go see it. now. So then me, my dad, my aunt, and my uncle sat around and talked 'til about 1 AM. It was a good time. We got home today around 1, I think. And since, I've been randomly doing some homework, practicing the Sax, and watching the Pack. Man, this has been one of the best weekends I've had in a long time.

Time for Adam to dedicate paragraphs in his journal to people. These are in no particular order, they're just paragraphs about people.

Okay, so here we go. Kerry is the hippest person alive. She really is. Except for when she has away messages up ALL DAY LONG, so I have no time to make fun of her for liking such crappy music. But anyway, Kerry is awesome. Not to mention that she's a cutie, too.

up next? J-Funk and Zaflo. They go together because they're originators of ownage. Without them, I probably would've given up on AOL a long time ago, but they kept everything entertaining, whether by making fun of people, wrasslin' rp'in, or just by both of them having an undying love for Lita.

Third(or fourth)? Bethie. Me 'n Bethie go way back. Years. Even when no one else on AOL was smart enough to realize how awesome I am, she was still there. And I'd like to state for the record how awesome it is that she and Tony are still together. Talk about inspiration, man.

Next, Jen to the hizam. I don't even know if she reads this, but she's goin' in it anyway. One big reason is the fact that she can act like a 3 year old, while still being about 23 times smarter than me.

Jason/Jay/Jonathan. My partner in AOSluts crime for a while. We've had our arguments, but I'll ALWAYS be able to look back on the aosluts days and laugh...that goes for thescenes, too. Talk about good times.

As far as I know, that's it. If anyone else wants a paragraph of love in my journal, lemme know. p'z.

Alright, time for a real entry. First things first. Assuming she still actually reads this, I wanna say thank you to Lauren. She is just the sweetest thing ever, and even when I'm feeling really down about a whole bunch of stuff, she just has this way of making me feel so much better. Yay for Lauren!

So, life. It' "eh" is a good word to describe it. "blah" would be, too. But I'm good. No worries. Just been chillin' lately. I got so much sleep Wednesday night, it was scary. I slept for like 13 hours, and only woke up once. That's not usual for me, especially during the school year. I get about 6½ hours on average. So I basically doubled that. Weird.

Music style. NOFX, Straight Outta Junior High, and all classical stuff. I downloaded one of the songs we're playing in band, and it is absolutely one of the coolest songs ever. It's the third movement in Holst's Moorside Suite. Naturally, it's the march. Holst tends to do that a lot. We're also playing this AWESOME song, Caccia and Chorale. I can't find a recording anywhere, though. Maybe I'll ask the director if I can borrow hers.

Alright, I think that's about it. P'z out, homies.

bad roIe model: Man, people need to be more cultured. I look up "Caccia and Chorale" so I can download it for band, and I get 0 results on Kazaa. Look up "Eminem" and you get hundreds. What's WRONG with this picture?
Becky, my sister: What's wrong is that people are dopes
bad roIe model: Seriously. Culture is becoming extinct.
Becky, my sister: Well, culture as we define it might be, but really it's just evolving to fit the younger and stupider among us
bad roIe model: I have a feeling I'm going to grow up and be one of the few people in the world that listens to good old classical music.
bad roIe model: OH, WAIT! I don't need to grow up. That's right now.
Becky, my sister: LOL, yes

Man, me and my sister are awesome.

Due to the comments on my last entry, I must start like this:

What up, ladies?

Alright, now that we've got that outta the way, onto more important matters. School is great, but I forgot about the little things that piss me off: waking up before 2 in the afternoon, never getting ANY time at the house without captain jackass and his wife present, stupid people, etc. Other than that, it's great. Intel Rel is a GREAT class. I don't think I'll ever get sick of it. Ah, the joys of being interested in current events.

Not much else is happenin'. Other than me being the coolest kid alive, of course. Word to you AND yo' motha. FO'sho.

Welp, school starts tomorrow. It'll be a shame to see summer go. Oh wait, no it won't. For the first time in my life, I'm looking forward to going back to school. The crew'll hang out regularly again...I'll be back in the ol' should be a good time. I've heard from a few people (Matt and Beth) that I can say all I want now about wanting to get out of school...but I'll miss it later. so I'll assume they're right, and I'll do my best to enjoy the good ol' senior year.

I might update s'more later. Like, if no one comes online..'cause right now, I'm bored as hell. Someone needs to be online. Now.

"You can never be like me so don't waste your time,
because I reign supreme and my position is divine."

A cocky line...from the cockiest song ever recorded. And amazingly, it's one of John Kaos' 728174 themes. So anyway, what's been up lately. I'm waiting for school to start, so I can have a regular routine again, rather than random-ness thrown throughout the day. I'm also enjoying "Les Miserables" quite a bit. It's an amazingly good book. I also just ripped Vivaldi's "Four Seasons" onto the computer. Time to get back into cultural mode, now that I have to go back to band. But I've always enjoyed Vivaldi, so it isn't too bad. Hmm..what else. Rented Mario Golf for GameCube, and I'm in a constant race agaisnt Marc to unlock shit. He may not know he's racing, but he is. But he also told me about Mario Kart coming out for GameCube..and that looks to be an awesome game. So does Wrestlemania 19. And on a wrestling note, I recently applied to HPWF, and got accepted. So soon, Shifty Bradley will have the following titles: RCWF Tag Champ, HCW Tag Champ, RXCW Tag Champ, BECW Tag Champ(gonna win next thursday), and HPWF Tag Champ(gonna win when we get a push). Talk about complete domination, kids.

Man, this entry was completely random. OH! If you want to hear my pick for song(s) of the week, lemme know, and I'll send an e-mail with them. Just so you's the Intro to RBI Baseball for NES, the "Men-On-Base" music for RBI, and the "Empty Bases" music. THe only three tunes in the whole game. They're great.

Hi, kids! I haven't had a happy entry in a while, so I'll attempt to throw one out here. Wait, before I do, I need to say this real quick. Actually, it'll probably take me a while, as I have a way of avoiding my point, finding it eventually, ellaborating upon it, and then summarizing it.

People on AOL, as a whole, are retarded. Not AOL in general, just the people on it. I've come to realize a lot of things about a lot of people. That's exactly why I decided to limit my contact with most people to a bare minimum. I've stayed away from chatrooms, unless it's one that I know contains people that don't suck, or if it's a BECW event(or some other fed). In IM's, in the past..oh, I don't know...couple weeks, I've only talked to Marc, Joey, Kerry, Ali, Jason, Jenham, and Lauren(side note: me and Lauren didn't talk for a while, but I decided to put a stop to that, so I could chat with the hottest pot smoker I know). These are the people that are interesting to talk to. They don't sit there and lie to make themselves seem better, or to make me feel better. If I do something stupid, they let me know. The other day, I made a rare decision to go in a chatroom. Mostly because Joey told me to, on account of something in the chat relating to the MUD. But I stayed and chatted with Joey some, played the game, and shit. Then I glance in the chat, and I see two people(let's call them Cissy and Gait) talking about how they used to have little worlds or some shit with stuffed animals. Now, me being the person I am, couldn't let that go without making a comment. It was something more-or-less along the lines of "Man, I knew there was a reason I stayed out of chatrooms." Gissy decides to be little miss uptight and take it personally, and proceeds to call me an "AO-Nobody" and "worthless to AOL." Like I actually CARE about that shit. Anyway, Cait jumps in at Gissy's side, and agrees with her. Any surprise there? Of COURSE not. Anyway, Joey and Jason both decided Gissy was wrong, and told her Gissy made some comment and bitched her way out of the room. Yet another reason why I choose not to deal with people. so yeah, that's the serious part. I hate stupid people.

NOW FOR HAPPY! I got a reading list for AP English. Well, only one book. Les Miserables. It was written in like..well, a long time ago. Then it got turned into a musical. Our school did the musical last year, and I started out in the pit, then dropped out, because it sucked. Anyway, the book is really good. I suggest everyone go out and buy it.

On the music side of things: I fade in and out of my love for NOFX. Well, not really I'm either in "Damn, NOFX kicks more ass than anyone else alive" or I'm in "Wow, NOFX is pretty good." It all depends on the day. I've been listening to the school band's recorded CD's lately. gotta get back into the ol' band geek mode, since school's just around the corner. Two weeks, actually. I'm really psyched about the new Catch 22 album. Comes out November...4th, I think. I'll buy 2 copies. One to listen to, then one to listen to when the first gets worn down. Bwahaha.

So, let's see. BECW Cybercast is this weekend. That should be a great time. OH! I'm terribly upset. Gilbert Brown has been injured, and supposedly gone for the whole season. So the Packers don't stand a chance. On that sad note, I'm outta here. Keep it real, homies. p'z

So I finally got around to downloading the new Me First and the Gimme Gimmes album. DAMN, it's good. It's all R&B covers. So Fat Mike is screaming "you make me feel like a natural woman." Makes perfect sense, to me.

October 21 is the release date for Anti-Flag's new album, I think. The Terror State. Man, political shit is fun. Oh..on Anti-Flag's site, they have this article they wrote about some asshole named Fred Phelps or something. He PROTESTED Mr. Rogers' funeral. What the fuck is that? Who in GOD'S name would protest the funeral? Ironic I should use "who in God's name" because that's why he did it. He says that by telling kids that they are okay the way they are...Mr Rogers wasn't doing his part in telling them that homosexuals are damned to hell. Amazingly, the man even has a website...something about how God hates fags. FIRST of all...God doesn't hate. SECOND of all...why the fuck would you picket a funeral? On the man's website, he has a "puzzle" to figure out. He blatantly symbolizes gay people with a pink swastika. I wish this asshole would realize that hating is a sin, just like that of homosexuality (assuming, of course, that homosexuality is a sin, which I don't. I think if someone's a homosexual, that's their business, and I have no right in telling them that they're a bad person for it). Every sin is just as bad as the next. Lying is just as bad as killing. And by saying you hate someone, you're "killing" them, according to the Bible, which Mr. Phelps lives so strongly by. By condemning one sin, while commiting one himself, he deserves to be kicked right in the nuts, and then slapped across the face a few times. He's a blatant hypocrite, and one that assumes he can proudly proclaim that people like Mr. Rogers and Bob Hope are going to hell. I've got two words for that asshole. FUCK YOU. FUCK YOU, Mr. Phelps. I don't say this often...but I hope you rot in hell for eternity, you lowly piece of shit.

Something has sparked me to write a serious entry. This entry is about no one in particular. This entry isn't meant to hurt anyone, and isn't meant to belittle anyone. So if you take offense, don't blame me. Blame your insecruity.

Alright, I've noticed a common trend lately. It's shown up on websites, in chatrooms, and in IM's I've had. People have come to one conclusion. They proudly state "Religion is shit." Or something along the lines of "I don't believe in religion because it doesn't make sense." Well, that's a pretty broad generalization. There's a ton of religions out there, and you're saying they're all bogus? Wow, that's pretty ballsy. You must be pretty confident in yourself. What's that? You have no actual backing? You're saying that to be different? Man, that's pretty stupid.

People say that the Bible is a lie. That the things in it couldn't have possibly happened. Well excuse me, but there IS proof of some of the things. Such as the flood. Now was 2 of EVERY animal brought onto the ark? No, I don't believe so. And was the whole entire world covered in water? No. One thing people don't seem to care to realize is that people in Biblical times were very poetic. They would say things like "to the four corners of the earth"...does that mean Earth has 4 corners? No, that is just another way of saying "all of the world." I believe that the flood may have covered the entire KNOWN world. Which wasn't the entire world, obviously. And the Bible isn't meant to be taken all as facts, and all as truths. Look at how Christ preached. Parables. He tought by telling stories, so how do we know that the Bible isn't just that? Stories to teach us what's right and what's wrong? We don't. I believe, however, that that's exactly what it is. A guidebook on how one should live. Is some of it true? Yes, I believe some of it is true. Because that's how I view it.

As for creation, I don't know how the World was created. I don't claim to. I never WILL claim to. Until I meet the big man upstairs, I won't worry a whole lot about it. If my mom has only taught me one thing in life, it's that not every detail is deathly important to your faith. My faith is dependent on some things. I'll call those the pillars of my faith. How God went about creating the world is NOT one of the strong pillars. Sure, I have my own ideas on it, but if I'm wrong, my faith isn't going to crumble. Basically, my faith isn't resting on the fact that God created the world through evolution or he didn't. I believe that God created the world how HE saw fit. If he saw evolution as the best way, well then by God, he can do it that way. Sure, we resemble monkeys. Does that mean that evolution is a sure thing? Not necessarily. It's a strong possiblity, but not necessarily something that's true beyond a shadow of a doubt. My faith isn't I truly don't believe it matters how God created man, or in how many days. The Bible says 6 days, but that could be literal 24 hour days, or it could be the term "day" as in "period of time." I don't know, and once again, I don't claim to. Maybe me and God can sit down and have a chat someday, and I'll let you all know how long it took him.

Now we're into the more philosophical stuff, which is what I'm into. I like this stuff. Stuff like the five cornerstones of Calvinism. T.U.L.I.P. Total Depravity, Unconditional Election, Limited Atonement, Irresistable Grace, and Preservation of Saints. A quick run-down. Total Drepavity means we're all born into the world, stained by sin. Unconditional Election means that God chooses us to be his people, not the other way around. Limited Atonement is saying Christ Jesus only died for the selected people. Irresistable Grace means that if God wants you to follow him, you will. He gets his way. Preservation of Saints says that once you're saved, you're always saved. I went into this a while back on my livejournal, and if anyone can remember, I had a problem with Limited Atonement, which I still do. I believe that Christ died for the entire world. My belief stemming basically from scripture. "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, and whoever believes in him shall not parish but have eternal life." My point: "For God so loved the world..." Once again, my faith does NOT depend on who Jesus died for. I fit into both categories, as far as I know. I am in the World, and I do believe I'm a follower of Christ. So it's not a life or death situation for me. As for a LOT of people, who say that God controls our lives, that it's all fate...I don't believe that for a second. I think my friend Rich said it best. "God knows where we're going, he may even choose it for us. It's just our job to get ourselves there."

Now I just looked at one of the webpages that sparked this entry, and I have two things left to deal with. Missionaries, and people being narrow minded. As for being narrow minded...I am extremely narrow minded on some things, yet I believe that I'm very open for discussion on others. I'm narrow minded when it comes to myself. I will not do drugs. I will not. That's how I am. Addiction runs in my family, and I don't want to be a part of it. I don't want to spend the little money I have, on drugs. I don't want to watch my life waste away because I decided to go out drinking instead of sitting at home to study. My dad was a smoker for most of my life, and he drank for most of my life. I saw some seriously scary moments when we didn't know if he'd make it. He finally quit smoking. No patch, nothing. Just stopped. Same with drinking. I'm proud of him for doing that. He may do some stupid shit, but it takes a strong person to be able to stop doing what he did. my grandma and grandpa on one side smoked and drank, as well. I know that I probably have a weakness for substance abuse, and I don't want to get involved with it. Hate me for it if you want, but I'm not gonna do it. But when it comes to discussing things, I think I'm pretty open minded. I'll sit around and shoot the shit for hours with people if they wanna discuss religion, beliefs, or something as mundane as music. I may not agree with you, but I'll attempt to show you why I feel like I do.

Last topic of the day, Missionaries. Contrary to what the person(who shall remain anonymous, because I have absolutely nothing against this person. He/she is a wonderful person, and I'm just getting a few things off of my chest.) said, missionaries don't try to change whole cultures. They're taking a mission, and going to other countries with it. They believe in their faith. Matthew 28 verse something: "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." They're going forth, and they're trying to make disciples of all nations. If the people don't take kindly, they leave, and go back eventually. They're doing what they've been called to do in life.

In closing, I don't think I'm better than anyone. Quite the opposite. I know I'm not a good Christian, and I try and change, but I just can't most of the time. I'm mean to people, I insult people...I try and change, but I can't. I'm a bad person. But I'm trying. I don't think that people who aren't religious are stupid, ignorant, dumb, or anything else. I think people that just defy all religions without even thinking out should give a religion a chance, just to see how it is. Just to see what the deal us. But the fact remains...I'm a Christian. A reformed Christian. A member of the Reformed Church of America. I go to a Christian High School. I'm GOING to take offense when people diss religion, or try and make it seem like religion is a joke. So if the dissing continues, expect more entries like this. Later.

And here comes my update. So sit back, grab a bottle o' jack, and enjoy yourself.

Currently, I'm trying to gather together money so I can get into Six Flags. It's not working too well, but at least I have something. By next week, I should have enough. So I can only hope that we go on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday. Thursday and Friday next week are taken. So anyway, on the AOL side of things, not a damn thing is happening. Enjoyin' the Big East, and enjoyin' the MUD deal that Marc, Joey, and I play. It's a good time.

That's all. p'z.

Alright, here comes another update. Straight outta compton, y'all.

Alright, first things first. I saw League of Extraordinary Gentlemen on....Friday, I think. Despite the reviews saying it sucked, I enjoyed it. It was a good time. My sister and my mom just left to see Pirates of the Carribean, or whatever. I elected not to go. Don't ask why, because I don't know. I just didn't wanna go see a movie 2 minutes after I woke up.

Alright. This is where I'm going to list what my monkey is wearing in the text RPG Marc, Joey, and I play. My monkey is wearing:

A sapphire medallion around her neck.
An Owlbear pelt across her chest
A chipped cloud ring on her finger
A silver hoop earring in her right ear
A burlap back pack on her back
The Pirate's Choice Dagger is wielded
A silencing belt engraved "BECW Champ" is around her waist
A chain bracelet is around her right wrist.
A pair of fingerless gloves are on her hands.
A thick leather collar is around her neck.
A pair of Murky Sleeves are on her arms.
A pair of Murky Boots are on her feet
A Murky Breastplate is on her chest
A chain bracelet is around her left wrist
A small wooden shield is a shield.
A Blood Helmet on her head.
A silver hoop earing in her left ear.
A pair of thick pants engraved "Team WOY" on her legs.

Man. That's one heavily armored monkey. However, Marc's tarantula is a LOT more awesome. I don't remember it all, but I know the spider has bracelets on each wrist, one says "LOVE" one says "HATE" There's a lot more, and I'll make sure Marc either puts it in his journal, or I'll slap him. Hard.

Alright, I think that's all for my update. The end.
