||"Renegades Of Funk" - Rage Against the Machine
Whoa...so much has happened in the past couple of weeks...I use to think my life was boring...not anymore...
-I went to a concert with Kev. We got there in time to catch the end of The Starting Line, before No Use For A Name came on. NUFAN played a kick ass set, and it was great because we were at The Tabernacle, and you're really close to the band wherever you are. When Sum 41 came on, I didn't think they could play any better than NUFAN, but they put on some pretty awesome competition. There were so many fucking spotlights though, I thought I was going to go blind. But anyway...I didn't see anyone doing the Sum 41 salute (4 fingers on your right hand, you're one middle finger on your left hand) so letting the teeny bopper side I have out for just a bit, I started saluting. Deryck saw, and at first I thought he thought I was flicking him off. But then he was like, "How many of you know the Sum 41 salute?" So he obviously got what I was doing. I swear I caught Cone's eye at least once, and Dave...oh my fucking God! If I ever had an idol, it would be him. He's a flat out kick ass maniac at guitar. I thought I was going to pass out from the rush of excitement during one of his solos. During the whole concert I was squished between these little guys, and it was really funny, 'cause you could tell they had no idea who NUFAN were, but as soon as Sum 41 came on, they were all like, "WOOHOO!" I would have loved to follow my punk rock heart into the pit, but I know if I had Kev would be draggin' me out in pieces. It was pretty vicious.
-Michael and Nathan's girlfriends broke up with them within a day of each other. Let's just say they got over it pretty quickly.
-I went to Aleah's party. I ended up in a tiny little bathroom with Michael...um...we kissed? I guess, yeah...we did.
-Michael asked me out. And he says he loves me, and maybe he does, but I have a hard time believing people...but anyway, I said yeah, 'cause he's just a really awesome person. We went out for awhile last year, but we broke up. He's one of my best friends...I dunno...hope I don't lose him.
-Michael started a band called "The Chinese Gremlins." Haha...don't ask how they got the name.
-Found out my dad has borderline diabetes, and can die of a heart attack at any minute. So we have to have all of these sugar and egg substatutes to eat now, since he can't have his cholesterol go up any more than it has. I was a vegetarian before...now I'm just...a really healthy vegetarian.
-Went shopping. (ok...that's not really big news, but when you almost never get to, it kinda is.) Got two new posters: Rancid and Sum 41<-even though I already had one of Sum. Hung the Rancid one on the ceiling above my bed. It's the picture from the cover of ...And Out Come the Wolves. So I wake up every morning to Tim holding his head between his knees. It helps/makes me think a lot. ::::shrug:::: Hung the Sum 41 poster somewhere on the wall. Other stuff I got: a pair of Dickies capris and shorts, a star stud belt, two tank tops, and some other random pair of capris. And oh my god...my dad came home with a Ramones album. Not for me...for him! Not that I really listen to the Ramones very much...but did I miss something? Since when did my parents start listening to music that was against them? Oh well...it's an improvement. At least he's listening to more than blues now.
-Found out something about Michael(can you tell how almost everything that's happened has involved him?) that I can't even write here. One of those things that I'll have to take to my grave... It's not so bad, but the important part is he thinks it is...so I'm not saying(typing) anything about it...except for that.
-Dyed my hair black...and it turned out purple. Had to go to school with it to. We're not supposed to have "unnatural" hair colors at our school, but I didn't feel like re-dying it. Went to school and everyone stared. Ha. I own this town. Or I will...I know people are just waiting to see what I'm going to do next. The funny part is: it was picture day. So my hair is purple in my class photo. No big deal to me, but I'm sure everyone who bought a picture is going to be freaked out. I felt special, 'cause the guy who was helping with the camera was really hot(and only a grade or so above me), and he said my hair looked awesome. Note that he is also very nice. The camera girl thought my hair was "kick ass." Go me!
Ok...well I can't think of anything else right now...so yeah. Muchos loves. -M
