You Know It
Had the worse show ever with Making Eyes the other week at Orange and Brew.
It started before the show. Got in a spat with the landlord over being able to play music in the house. I think he has something against us. We are an acoustic band and never play past 9 pm. He said that we could not play music inside anymore, but that our roommates could continue smoking inside because “smoking doesn’t make noise.”
I was all in a huff and forgot much of the equipment, including my own damn guitar. Eventually got the guitar, but had no capo or means to amplify the guitar. My string broke mid-song and I had no backup. The set was cut short after attempting a few songs on the maimed instrument. It is strange to play a guitar with a missing string. It is like using a prosthetic arm to type. My finger kept looking for something and pressing down on the wrong string.
I found a new place to live though. A place with a garage to play in.
Before the Orange and Brew show was a show with Iconicons at Wayward Council. It was mediocre.
My girlfriend has a rabbit now. It’s name is Kill Kill Murder Kill. It is ferocious I swear. I give it walks with a miniature harness.
My classes are going quite slowly. I need to start speaking out in some of them to get noticed and get good grades.
I have been sick all week. Yesterday was the first day that I felt better since last Wednesday.
I am going to New York for spring break. I found out that I fly fee again through my mother’s airline benefits.
I think that is most of the news for now.
