Subject:cc: the mid-atlantic literary rescue league
Mood:tired as fuck!

itb isn't a place; it's a state of mind!Collapse )

so i just spent the last few minutes (more like portions of hours) nerding out, downloading widgets for tiger (yeah, the shit i got for free). i'm a dork, big whoop, wanna fight about it?

blue ridge was good. thank you for everyone with a kind word to say, a smile, a hug, anything like that. it really helped. for everyone that was there, thank you. to all that wanted to make it, but couldn't. thank you too. this week was for you. not me, and not anyone else.

oh, shipwreck embarks tomorrow. expect the debut cd-ep/seven inch soon (probably when i'm back in providence). in preparation for tomorrow, i'm going to sleep. my clear sky clock states that my peak hours of darkness are right now, which'll aid in some good sleeping. so g'night

p.s.- my birthday is tomorrow (june 28th). if i haven't heard from you in a while, pop your head around the corner and say hi. then find your rock and crawl back under it. and if you've been sleeping longer than that, go back to sleep.

EDIT: i want a pack of ernie ball hybrid slinky strings for my birthday

Subject:good thing apocalypso never took off

so i've been job hunting. it's stagnant. i've been hanging out a lot. been playing in a new band with zach/scott/ben from the radio silence and mike of level five charm spell. the stuff sounds really amazing (like godspeed!, kayo dot, múm-ish type stuff with poppy tendancies and the likliehood that i will start noodling and lose my place in a song)

i've also been relearning and rehashing out oh, shipwreck songs for the ep that mckenna and i will be recording in july with sam at mobile sky studios, and will PROBABLY see a champlin hall release (because i don't know if we can/will get someone else to pick it up)

blue ridge is in 6 days. as of tuesday/wednesday, i am MIA until the following friday, then it is hang out/play music with mckenna time until about august something-ith.

p.s.- show(s) at the posidome sunday and monday. come and hang out.

Subject:good times (not the show!)
Mood:wisking myself off to bed

the days have been rad thus far

david, thanks for a place to crash last nite. i appreciate it.
(NOTE: come to raleigh and i WILL redeem myself in goldeneye, guaranteed.)

to all those i haven't seen yet, let me know what your schedules are like so we can bro-down. i get the distinct impression my car isn't going to make it through the summer with the stress i've put on it lately, so for all you out-of-towners, try to make it to raleigh por favor.

buena noche

Subject:my mouth writes checks my body can't cash, and for that i am (notorious) sorry

i mean the title (NOTE: grammar has been pathetic all day. apologies). case and point tonite. retrospective foot in mouth even if no one else thought so. cryptic? yes. how much i care? too much.

greensboro in about 14 hrs.
but before that:

happy birthday lauren reece

because she fucking earned this one, just like every other. thank you for being an amazing friend and not giving up on me (a fuck-up)

race the sunCollapse )

christmas lights + stress + lack of sleep = shit. goodnight (what would i use for the opposite of an exclamation mark for those times when i'm just generally not excited? no punctuation at all? any mechanical/grammatical theories here?)

Subject:let it fall apart
Mood:tired // so i'm sleeping

not going to lie, in 4 and a half days, i'm going to be the happiest i've been in a long time. kind of sick of providence (right now at least). just ready to go home, spend time with friends i haven't seen in a while, spend time with family, do the things i've been working on and planning on getting done, being productive, being happy, stuff that i haven't been and would like to be now.

congratulations to all the friends of mine that are graduating school: mo, charlie, darin, et al
larger congratulations to my brother whose graduating from uc berkeley.
i'll be out in cali for his commencement on the 20. first time in california. i'm stoked
i'll be missing mliw/comeback kid at aces though. minor sacrifice.

ipods rock. so does sleep. so does finishing school.
taking care of one exam also rocks (PS111!)
but back to sleep rocking, yeah, i'm rocking it in a sec

gotta record the vespers for brls tomorrow and mail them out
gotta make mckenna's present and mail it out
gotta write more for my el65 paper and draft my hi42 paper
i'm a busy fuck. later (sleep. now. dope. out.)

Subject:i drink like a champion
Mood:tired and ill feeling

top floor westminster st flats. raised hands, lowered heads. sidelined empties and bodies. i wish i sacrificed my pride to become the eagle claw can the shared your lips. new england carelessly shotgunning hearts to warm the bodies. "don't apologize, i understand." these headphones and pens that attempt to write you off (you do it much better, you know) but these lines only etch you in. "only i'm sorry you feel that way, i'm just old-fashioned"


prefuse 73 + battles tomorrow night in boston. done and done.


EDIT: the show was rad. battles was fucking ridiculous. imagine if the dudes from hella beatboxed and then proceeded to drop beats with rjd2 and rescue. yeah, like dancing in math class. prefuse knows how to rock shit. "busy signal" hit and i lost it. what a jam, o what a jam!
