so AMAZING/ANNOYING. Hmmm....... where to begin. OH! For one, I was
told we were going to Red Fork Falls (yet again), but instead we went
to Frog's Level (which is around Elizabethton) and I had never been
It was TEN TIMES BETTER THAN THE RED FORK FALLS
THAT I TOOK PICTURES OF. I left my camera simply because I was told it
would be Red Fork Falls T_T So I couldn't take pictures, and Caitlin
forgot hers too, we were just like "aww". Apparently we have a song
now, and she always wants me to play it o_O Meanwhile everyone else
looks like they want to stone me for playing that same one over and
over. And she spoke like baby talk the whole week.
Actually, it was more like a baby who had cancer cuz it was a low raspy sorta voice mixed with baby talk. So yeah.
a bass player, as well. He was pretty cool, he said he was going to
bring his bass (I have my guitar and amp there now) so maybe we can
pull off a White Stripe's song (that was some music humor rite thar)
at Frog's Level, after the mile hike, we got to climb up the waterfall
and jump off the edge of it (30 feet or so). It was the biggest rush of
adrenaline I've had in so long. Made me feel like, like... I can't
describe it. Go climb a waterfall, look down, jump, come back up for
life-giving air, then tell me . I jumped off twice
Oh and apparently Old Gregg is still the coolest shizz evar. I still have to give Tori her pictures of Bailey's >_>
had a job of tasting some milk to see if it needed changing, and the
very first one happened to be soured. The rest were fine, of course.
I sang a love/pop song to Jamiee (who was my leader's
girlfriend LOL) and now she wants me to learn some Paramore before I go
It seems like I always have fun down there. The
atmosphere is great, the weather, the people, everything just feels as
it should be there. And Caleb (my leader) knows like every Taylor Swift
and John Mayer song there is.
I have like a billion new inside jokes now, so that's always good for some fresh humor.
so tired, but I really wouldn't have it any other way right now,
because that would mean I must not have been trying to have as much fun
as I could have.
I realize that there was NO organization in
this blog at all, but I'm just repeating what comes to mind, and I
might edit it to add more later. But I did all that and I still have
one more week left before I'm done, so I hope we do as much as this
Oh and, not that you know, this is just for my own
personal note: Preston, Brett, and Isaac are the funniest people I will
ever meet. Evar.
so pretty much, its a little over 5AM, and I am writing this out of
pure boredom. Just a little bit of updating before I go lay down and
pass out. My youtube channel probably has mothballs in it, because it's
been so long since I've updated it. Also, there seem to have been a
surge of critical people, and gave me some pretty low ratings on some
of my videos. I'll agree with them on some of the vids, but some were
completely undeserved >_> Oh, and some of my friends I was with
decided it would be "cool" to put stickers on my guitar (the SG styled
one). What they didn't do was tell me. What they didn't know was that
STICKERS RUIN THE FINISH ON GUITARS. IT'S LIKE A HUGE "NO" WAITING TO
HAPPEN. Bleck. In good news, the Jackson came in (as I've already
mentioned NUMEROUS times), and I found what I believe to be my next amp
(it's a modeling amp).
DIEING for some new stuff to listen to. When I say new, I don't mean go
from metal to electro (although I have on occasion), but some new
sounds from the same genre, yeah? Yeah. Alot of people who know me in
person know that I've been away for the most part. Got a nice job at an
ok camp. It's easy to understand stuff there: get done with all the
(hard, and extremly TEDIOUS) work, then have the rest of the time to do
whatever (although some of that time is spent volunteering). Played a
friends Cube 15 there, which got me interested in modeling amps to
It's freezing in my
room right now... of course it's probably because I have the fan on.
Helps me sleep though, the breeze hitting me in the face. I'll try to
write more blogs, update my youtube channel, update the OTHER various
social networking sites (pretty much this, youtube, facebook, and
twitter) as much as possible, but I leave to work again in a little
less than 2 weeks. In case you haven't noticed, I almost have a
rambling sort've thing going on in these blogs. That's because it's not
meant to be a novel. It's just a collection of thoughts as they come to
me, so of course it will be random.
think, that with my license and guitar in tow, and a new amp on the
way, I'll be ready to go looking for places to play. Or maybe I could
wind up like people without money and play in a random street.
just a reminder: Mountain City still sucks. As boring as always. It's
the only place I know of that only has three lights on it's Main
Street. It'll be nice when I graduate, to move into a more urban area
(maybe Johnson City?); or maybe I'm getting too far ahead of myself.
are certain people that I really, really dislike at the moment. People
who I thought were my friends, but somewhere along the road had a
change of heart. As of now, those people might as well be dead, because
I'm definitely not going to give them a second thought, or anything
else, for that matter. There are also people who I like a whole lot
more than others, who I like being around in general. Then there are
the rest of people (mostly all) who I consider neutral with me.
around here need to loosen up. I think this so-called city's way of
entertaining itself is thriving off of stupid rumors and gossip that
spread everywhere like it were an STD or Swine Flu. When they hear
something, they blow it up to be so much more than it is, or even add
their own details to it, not that I care. I'm here to live life. I'm
going to stop talking about it now, so I don't ramble on it anymore.
think that's pretty much all I've got. Why the colors? Because I saw
that I could have them, as well as some serve for why they were put
where they were. No it doesn't work like a mood ring, so don't think
red=angry or something stupid like that; it's a bit more complex.
If I think of anything else, I'll put it in a new blog, or update this
one. Oh, do me a favor: if you actually read most or all of that, and
liked what you read, leave a kudo and a comment, yeah? I mean, you read
all that and you can't type what you thought about it or push a (Kudo)
button? Do me a favor and I'll do you one, too.
PPS: With all
this being said, I'm going to go pass out on my (very inviting and
comfortable) bed. Hope you enjoyed my (parenthesis). Ok, seriously, I'm
done now. Thanks!
so first, i didnt have time to dry my hair this morning, and i started
sneezing and crap at school. Then someone said something that really
pissed me off. Great, huh? But my day actually went very well from 4th
per. on. Went home. Talked. Recorded 2 videos. Uploaded 1. Ate Doritos.
Watched preseason (boo!). Tried to sleep. Failed. Checked various soc.
networking sites, and got a great message from someone important to me.
It was my high of today. Low was this morning. My wow is, wow, (see
All the stuff I use for recording. Not like the guitars and amp, but the microphones and speakers.
one thing, I have to tape my speakers cable to itself, because
apparently thats the only way I get one of them to work. I hardly ever
have it past half-way on the volume, so I'm not sure why the one blew
But what makes me more pissed than that is recording something FLAWLESSLY and having the mic do what it does.
you go to my "Favorite COB Riffs" video on youtube, you can hear it
while I'm playing something. It actually shifts my pitch down.
As in it sounds lower than it actually is, and then will put it back to normal, then might do it again.
might seem like a minor thing to you, but for me, recording something
and doing as close to perfect as possible on it, only to have your
microphone mess with it's pitch is bothersome.
The only time I should hear my pitch shifted is when I'm the one in control (with the whammy pedal). That's it.
I have the curse of wanting to get the last word in. Always. No matter
what. It. Never. Fails. So next time you talk to me and you are like
"Oh, I'm gonna go to *wherever*, I'll be back later. Bye!", just let me
say "bye" and leave. Don't reply with another "bye". You will start a
war you can't win. No, a war you WON'T win.
people are lazy >_> Out of ALL the views I have on my blogs
collectively, I have a total of, get ready for it, THREE kudos. Surely
my blogs entertain you more than that. I write blogs out of pure
caffeinated excitement or getting my opinion voiced. At least make it 4
kudos? I'll do sexual favors for reward whoever gets the 5th kudo, just sorta comment and be like "I kudo'd!"
Note:^Words marked out are not a part of offer.^
Note2: Please don't really comment being like "I kudo'd!". It would cause unnecessary laughter.
Reward may or may not include: A high-five, over the counter drugs, a
penny, your very own Myspace, STD's, and That's what she said jokes.
ninja language. Because Facebook's Pirate language just plain makes me
laugh, which makes me visit it a little more often >_>. Just
sayin' Myspace, you could use a Ninja language to compete with the
Pirate language. Just sayin'.
How can so many people stand by and do nothing for her? I mean, God forbid someone help the girl who's getting raped.
just wouldn't look cool in front of your friends right? It'd just be
dumb to help her... And for there to be that many also involved in the
rape itself? Sickening.
How can not even one, ONE person step
up and attempt to stop that? Yeah, she got drunk, that is her fault.
What isn't her fault is for other people to take advantage of that, and
in such a way. Meanwhile, everyone else is having fun punching her,
taking pictures, ...having "fun". Disgusting. As long as it's not them,
it doesn't matter, right? As long as it's not them, it's just harmless
fun, you know? Not. Exactly.
Being such a believer of karma, I
think all those involved in that other than the victim are going to be
bumf*cked by karma. It's totally tattling and being a spoil sport and
being a rat, a fink, to inform someone who would actually HELP what was
going on, yeah?
Ok, I feel better now. Still pissed, but slightly less pissed. Ugh.
