Homegrown Concerts

Glory Nights, let me tell you, they are up and coming. Vocals like Dashboard Confessional and music to match. I just got back from a CD Release show for The Bleeding Alarm, with guests Red Light Roulette and Glory Nights.

-Awesome show
The lyrics, the lyrics

Dashboard Confessional - "Hands Down"

Breathe in for luck,
breathe in so deep,
this air is blessed,
you share with me.
This night is wild,
so calm and dull,
these hearts they race,
from self control.
Your legs are smooth,
as they graze mine,
we're doing fine,
we're doing nothing at all.

My hopes are so high,
that your kiss might kill me.
So won't you kill me,
so I die happy.
My heart is yours to fill or burst,
to break or bury,
or wear as jewelery,
which ever you prefer.

The words are hushed lets not get busted;
just lay entwined here, undiscovered.
Safe in here from all the stupid questions.
"hey did you get some?"
Man, that is so dumb.
Stay quiet, stay near, stay close they can't hear...
so we can get some.

My hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me.
So won't you kill me, so I die happy.
My heart is yours to fill or burst,
to break or bury, or wear as jewelery,
which ever you prefer.

Hands down this is the best day I can ever remember,
I'll always remember the sound of the stereo,
the dim of the soft lights,
the scent of your hair that you twirled in your fingers
and the time on the clock when we realized it's so late
and this walk that we shared together.
The streets were wet
and the gate was locked so I jumped it,
and I let you in.
And you stood at your door with your hands on my waist
and you kissed me like you meant it.
And I knew that you meant it,
that you meant it,
that you meant it,
and I knew,
that you meant it,
that you meant it.

As Always, thanks to for always having the lyrics.
I'm here at school, programming my game and this song starts playing in my Winamp. It starts me thinking of my girlfriend, so I'm thinking of her, feeling good.

-Yeah, uh. Guess I just wanted you to know

Since Christmas, I've read 4 books (and counting). My girlfriend got me "The Looking Glass Wars" which follows Alice through a variation of the charmed Wonderland. I've also read J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series from "The Philosopher's Stone", to "The Chamber of Secrets" and "The Prisoner of Azkaban". Not to mention I've watched all of the coresponding movies after I'd read the book. Also, I'm 1/3 done the fourth book in the Harry Potter series, "The Goblet of Fire". And I've got "The Order of the Phoenix" on order at the library. I plan to have all the books read by the middle or end of February. At this rate, providing I get the book promptly from the library, I'll be done in the next couple weeks. Sadly, after this series, I don't really have anything else planned for reading. Which is just as well, seeing how midterms are starting next week.

-Keener... no, but I try

Concerts abound!

I saw Sum 41 in concert just this last Friday! Great show! Black Maria from Toronto opened for Sum 41, but the lead singer had larynghitis [sp] and only lasted 20 minutes. The were pretty good. After their set No Warning rawked the dome. No Warning was awesome, high energy, good music. And then came Sum 41 themselves. They were introduced via a video projected onto the backdrop of the stage. StevO ends up murduring Cone during a basketball match (literally) and drags Cone back to his apartment where StevO chops him up and serves him as dinner to Deryck and Dave. Boing :funny pose:

The backdrop falls and StevO opens the show standing on his elevated platform next to his drums, wearing a bloody butchers apron and wielding a chain saw. Deryck makes several references to GWBush and pays homage to the King and his Throne (you know which Elvis and which toilet I'm referring to) as well as their Anna Nicole Smith homage. Comedic show, they played their stuff from all 4 albums and are even better live than recorded.

-Super happy fun time
