I'm really disappointed that I was the only one in the entirety of the Kennedy Center wearing a bowtie, other than the Ushers.

Hipsterdom, Part 6

It's taken far longer than it should have, but my bike finally has a moustache.

If you want to see the Instructable, it's here.

New Record Player!

     I just got a new record player! There are now two things I ask my mom for advice on; how long to Nuke food, and awesome Old Jazz Records. Thanks mom!

Thank You Nemo! Again!

All of the props to Treat for showing me this video:

Also for catching a bat without looking in his bare hand. Just kidding, that hasn't happened yet, though it will, and it will be an Eulogy and an Epitaph. Someday.

I cried today for the first time in a long, long time realizing how fucking lucky I am that she's still alive and I got to spend today hanging out with her

Quite a Remarkable Day

     Well, today was pretty interesting. During school, some shenanigans involving "filming" and skipping the second half of World History and going to second lunch. Then in Bio, the shit paper I did last class entirely as a joke (Name three carnivorous reptiles: DINOSAURS, and What noise to tortoises make? Nothing, they're tortoises and weirdos and have a very very small circle of friends, generally consisting of other tortoises.) didn't get turned in, and most of the class heard my teacher say she anted to talk to me about it, but I never talked to her about it, and I have no intention to if she did say that. I biked to HB in 100 degree weather, and pondered why no one was out on such a beautiful day. Then I gave some advice, and contradicted the hell out of it with my actions.
    We then had our band concert, and it was the last time I'm going to see most, if not ll of the seniors. I'll probably end up remembering my final conversation with Scott forever.
    "Hey Scott, I was kinda disappointed with your senior quote. I expected it to be silly, but it was really deep and meaningful."
    "Haha, it was from Mass Effect 2."

     While my feelings at this point could be best summed up in a concise and catchy manner by Fake Problems lyrics (More related to the first paragraph than the second.), this one sums it up the best.

Against Me!

     Thursday night was my second Against Me! concert in a year (just barely!), and it was much louder, much more punk, and was far more awesome. Treat and I took the Metro down, then waited a solid half hour for our tickets (whoops!). We went up and Treat bough some groovy red vinyl. Then, we got prepared by an aural onslaught by Screaming Females. We waited through the sound guy's, "Lettuce, Eric, Scott, Lettuce, Lettuce," and the man right of us informed us that, "If I violate you in any way, I'll let you touch my wife's boobs."
      My hearing was gone by Pints of Guinness Make You Strong, as was my voice (which caused Tom Gabel to sound like a pixie), which was probably due to using every molecule off air in my body to belt out the lyrics, and "sing along with every record, fuck that, every song!" There were a great many people who hopped on the stage and sung with Tom Gabel, I wish I could say I was one of them. Then, as the speakers turned off, I heard everyone's voices swirling around me, as I can describe it in no better way, and realized what it's like to be insane. As we went out of the door, some people were handing out flyers, I looked over to grabe one or two, and the person handing them out was Spoonboy! I shouted, "I love you Spoonboy! (It wasn't a robbery)." Then after figuring out how we were going to get home, I walked up and asked, "Does it mean something bad if 'Stab Yer Dad' is one of my favorite songs ever?"
     I never heard his response, and my ears are still ringing...

     In completely unrelated news, I bit it on my way to school today, but I am uninjured, and wasn't even the least bit angry about it. Further explanation in a future post.
