Dropped out of school. Haha, I definitely don't recommend it. I dropped out and moved to this place called Pampa. They just so happened to desperately be looking for a Sports Editor, so they took a chance with me because I had experience. Then Amarillo heard about me, so they wanted to give me a shot as well. I just let them assume that I have a degree. I'm really trying to keep the fact that I'm so young under wraps, but we'll see what happens I guess. I am going back to school, of course. I'm not that dumb. I'm starting again in the fall.
So how long is it until you get out? What do you think you'll do?
Posted by ItsYaBoyJReag on Mar 15, 2007 2:05 AM (GMT-04:00)
I'm the Sports Editor for the daily paper here in Pampa, Tx. I used to write for the Amarillo Globe News as well, but I don't do that as much. It got to be a pretty long drive. As much as I love sports writing, I would really love to be able to cover some of the more newsy events as well. But I guess there's really not too much news going on here, so I think I've got the good end of the deal.

Dude, you write sports? I do too. It's something I've just recently gotten into, but I'm making a decent living for myself with it. Writing for music would be cool, though.

wow, yes, your site has alot more for sure. it looks great. How large is your staff? We've got about 18 including editors. This is the first year we've had a working website, actually. haha. Our web editor is still figuring out how to use college publisher...hence the silly "test" video he forgot to take down today. how embarassing!

Hey good idea heh..yeah, the interview will be in person at the venue before the show I'd assume. Their publicist offered the idea, I'm just waiting anxiously for details! I didn't expect an interview either, I was just hoping for a photo pass! Here's my paper's webssite: lpcexpress.org does yours have one?

Yeah I just saw Meg & Dia a couple weeks back. They are really good live. They have a good amount of energy when they play and have a good time from what I could tell. Also they are both really hot, so that helps.

Yes, I know its lame to be listening to this song, but for some reason I love it. I mean, its horribly sexist, but so damn catchy! Anyways, I'm so sorry you had a bad day (though from the sounds of it, it was worse than "bad"). You can tell me about it if you'd like. I'm a good listener (or more of a reader in this case). I actually finally got an sn on AIM, but I'm just warning you, I don't know how often I'll be on. Its DyingToKnow86. I can't believe how long to boards have been down. I was in NYC on Thursday so the last time I checked it was Wednesday and I have been wanting to check some posts. I guess we'll just have to be patient. I still haven't gotten a definitive answer from dunkin. I called this morning (for the second time) and they said they were just "reviewing applications." My friend is putting a good word in for me though. Its not that I really want this job, its that I need it. Its always hard to get a first job, which sucks.
Posted by Witty86 on Nov 13, 2006 4:12 AM (GMT-04:00)
I was on here looking to see if the boards were finally working again (they aren't) and I saw that you were on and had a new picture. So I figured I'd just leave you a comment. Have a lovely Sunday night! I don't have school tomorrow. Oh happy day! (though I do have to call dunkin donuts back about a job, yuck).

devendra banhart is sort of like a folk singer type guy. he's been one of my favorites for the past year and a half, if you like folk rock you would probably enjoy devendra banhart. I listen to a lot of different music, I don't limit myself to just one genre, but if I did, I would have to go with indie music. anyway, yeah, man man, what a glorious band. I havent listened to them since the summertime, but I think I'll put six demon bag into my cd player right now, hah.

i definitely can be really social around my good friends, because yeah we all rly love eachother. that and i give really good advice, and i kinda mediate the drama between all my friends, it helps me to feel needed.. read my profile and you'll see what i like to do for fun, and what i like in general
Posted by xmistoroboto on Oct 17, 2006 12:10 PM (GMT-04:00)
well actually yeah, i don't like my school much at all.. i mean i have some REALLY good friends there, who i wouldn't be able to survive without, but then there are others with like horrible attitudes who enjoy nothing more than taunting people.. and i'm pretty easy to make fun of, because there aren't many individuals at my school, and i'm really quiet.. oh i read your profile, and yeah i try to be genuinely caring <3

^^The Academy Is..., I can't wait to see them on warped. My tickets just came in the mail today. I hope I get to keep it. ahh, I'm sooo excited. My best friend is going with me and since its kind of far away I think we are staying at a hotel close by for the night. I hope its not to hot out though. I actually think it would be great if it rained. But I'm weird like that. Its too bad about the Clarity demos, that would have been neat to have, but maybe someday it will show up again in ebay? I've actually never bought anything from that site. It would probably save me money though. I sort of realized something about the whole relationship thing this week - its definitely not what I need right now. This guy asked me out and I just knew it wasn't the right thing at this point. I mean, to feel good about myself, I don't need someone else to love me, I need to love myself, and thats something I should work on first. Plus, with this upcoming year I am going to be too busy to spend much time with my friends, let alone a boyfriend. Maybe part of it was because it just didn't feel right with the guy. I hardly knew the guy and the thought made me uncomfortable. I mean, part of me still thinks it would be nice to have someone, but I'm not desperate for just anyone. I think its more about finding the right guy than anything. I totally understand about your doubts with school. I do well, but I have to put sooo much effort in to keep up with the other honors students and I still HATE it. It really makes me miserable, yet I feel like less of a person if I'm not taking the hardest classes, getting the best grades I can, and doing all these extracurriculars. Like this year I'm running for class Vice-President, I'm treasurer of the french club, I'm on student council, I'm doing a bunch of vounteer work, and then there are some other things I can't remember. And I still feel like everyone else is so much better than me. My reasoning for all of this is to get into a good college, but then I think "will I hate that too? what if I can't get in to where I want to go?" Its not like I even really know what I want to do with my life besides get married someday and have kids. What if I spend all this money on a college education and then never use it? Gosh, its all so confusing. Anyways, I have a friend that constantly needs a boyfriend too. Its been that way since 7th grade. She broke up with her boyfriend of a year and only waited about 3 weeks until she had another one. Same thing happened with the previous boyfriend but that time it only took her about 3 days. That last part of your comment made me laugh. I think its totally okay for straight guys to just hang out and have sleepovers, but I guess some people don't see it that way. Oh, and I had a good time at my friend's even though a lot of people bailed last minute.

What have you been doning lately? I just wanted to know whats going on cause everthing that goes is going wrong. I'm working a lot to save money for school and such. I went to Ohio for my vacation haha! I am going on a road trip soon with my friend Emily! So that truly it nothing to great but I'm happy to be alive.-Vickeytoria
Posted by Witty86 on Jul 17, 2006 8:16 PM (GMT-04:00)
^^from the song "Woe" by Say Anything. I am really starting to seriously fall in love with this band. "...Is A Real Boy" is such an amazing record. Max Bemis is a lyrical genius. I listened to this cd about 3 times back to back last night. Pretty much all I did last night was lay on my bed listening to music and soaking it all in. It was very relaxing. I'm suprised no one came into my room to tell me turn it down or anything. The walls in my house are paper thin and my grandparent's apartment (it basically takes up most of the second floor of our house) is right across from my room. I love my nana and papa, but its weird because they live with us, yet I feel like I hardly see them. When we first moved in I would spend a lot of time up there with them. I think its part of growing up, wanting to spend more time alone rather than with your family. anyways, yeah, I guess I am quick at getting back to my messages. It might be part of my procrastination. Need to do the dishes? Well, I guess I'll just spend a few minutes on the computer first...you know? I'm horrible with my homework. Sometimes I wait until the class before it due to finish it. I still have an A/B average though. I have to stop that since I have 2 AP classes this year. I like what I have heard from John Mayer, though it isn't much. My mom likes him, so part of me is like "ummm" since she doesn't have the best taste in music, but she does at least like Death Cab (one of the few bands she allows me to play in the car, but she calls dashboard "too angsty"). I think the reason I don't like people in my room is because I'm possesive about it. And I am a bit worried about my diary being found (I haven't written in it since last fall maybe, and the worst thing in there isn't even about me, but some of my 8th and 9th grade entries are pretty mortifying). I should probably just burn it. Plus, my uncle might be a little uncomfortable with a shirtless picture of Chris Carrabba right by my bed, hahahaha. I think the reason I long for a relationship is because I am a bit lonely, which makes no sense since I have some amazing friends. And then there is the whole stupid "I'm the only single one" thing. I'm almost 17 and I have yet to have a real relationship. I had a dream last night about this guy I liked all through middle school and it was really weird. He dated my best friend freshman year and that sucked majorly. I still see him around town once in awhile (we don't go to the same school)and I get those butterflies. Probably mostly from memories. I'm not even gonna lie, he is still amazingly adorable. I was pretty shocked when I found out he was bi, but thats no big deal. I think the whole thing with my birthday party depends if my parents let me do that and warped tour (since they would be paying for both me and my best friend). Man, I need to get those tickets like now before they are all gone. I better go get ready for one of my friend's monthly "girls night" sleepovers. Its kind of juvenile but we always have a blast. This comment was really long too, haha. Have a great day!
Posted by Witty86 on Jul 16, 2006 8:19 AM (GMT-04:00)
^^haha, obviously dashboard. Its been awhile since I've listen to Swiss Army and it makes me realize why I feel in love with this band. As much as I like D&S, it will never match up to the older albums for me. I listened to So Impossible right before this and that ep is shear love. No other way to describe it. Remember to Breathe...*sigh*. Oh, and I'm glad you appreciate me sending you the song. So, your very welcome! Thats too bad you don't like anything from the 80's, because I really love some of it. Sure, the decade had its very low points, but didn't the 90's as well? I mean, come on, boy bands? Yet, some amazing music still emerged. I don't really have to worry about taking the stuff down from my walls because I'll probably be here for awhile, and even when I'm not, its something nice to come back to. I love my room. Its like my own little corner of the universe. Thats why I'm pissed that my uncle will be sleeping in here for a week starting tuesday. He is 6 ft tall so I don't even know if he can fit on my twin bed. But I guess its better than my 12, 8, and 6 year old cousins all staying in here and snooping through my stuff. That is so awesome that the record store gave you credit for the reviews. It really great that you know what you want to do with your life - I still have no idea. Its kinda scary. haha, don't worry about the cheating thing, the way I see it, if the teacher couldn't put enough effort into making it, you shouldn't have to put too much effort into taking it. We had to do this project for history where basically we had to find all this different info on CT history. almost everyone who did it copied and pasted from wikipedia and such. he never even noticed because he was the worst teacher ever. Oh, and by the way, I got a 94 on it ;) I've seriously been thinking about learning how to play the guitar. We'll see about that. It wouldn't ever go anywhere, it would just be something for me to have fun with playing other people's songs since I am not a songwritter at ALL. The past couple of days have been okay for me. My cousin is over and we are having a good time. I realized I still like this guy who doesn't like me back (he likes my friend...) and it sucks so much. I almost thought I was in love with him, but I wasn't in retrospect, I just REALLY liked him. I can't seem to forget about him. Its been, like, 5 months of this crap. Haha, wow, its all sooo high school, but then again, I am in high school (I can't wait to get out of there, but another 2 facking years left). I decided today that for the first time since I turned 14 I am actually going to have a birthday party. There are 30 people I want to invite (this may sound weird, but sometimes I don't like having so many friends because its hard to find time and include a lot of them). I have no money for it, but I'll just do a pic-nic type thing in my backyard, tell everyone to bring something, and cook hotdogs over a fire. Simple, easy, and cheap. If I can find an outlit out there then we can actually have some music. I can't believe its in 3 weeks, crazy. This was sooo long. hah. I blame the insomnia. Have a lovely Sunday!

^^my ipod is charging after the long, long flight back home. Why does flying make you so tired? All you do the entire time is sit in a seat and look at the window. I got to see a lightening storm from above the clouds last night and it was the coolest thing ever. And yes, I can definitely guess what song you were listening to haha. I saw JM at the "Red, White and Boom" festival. Most of the people there were locals but I didn't care. I think Hawthorne Heights played there the day we were on the same flight as them so it makes sense. If Andrew McMahon were on the same plane as me, I think I might have a heart attack. But alas, that did not happen. I enjoyed Vegas. Something about the cheesiness is appealing to me. I wouldn't go back again before I am 21 though. You run out of things to do. It feels so good to be home. I slept into 3 pm but was woken up by my sister's best friend jumping on me, tickling me and screaming "I missed you so much!!!!" I've always wanted to see the Rock and Roll hall of fame (by the way, I find it awesome that they have anything from Conor Oberst in there, he is an amazing lyricist). I have friends out in Ohio and Indiana that want me to visit them at college so maybe I could make a stop there if its within an hour or so. Those friends are more like family and I miss them so much sometimes. I think they have been more of older sisters to me than my actual sister is. Hahaha, my friend Megan is the one who basically told me about sex. I mean, I got "the talk" from my mom at a young age but when I had questions I basically just asked her. She is almost 21 now. I can't belive it since I met her when she was 8 and I was 4. I hardly ever download either. That is the reason I am broke. I love taking the little booklets from cds and putting them up on my wall. I added you on myspace, this is mine just so you know: http://www.myspace.com/witty86. Oh, and here is the acoustic version of "Stolen": http://www.yousendit.com/transfer.php?action=download&ufid=5A9B93FB782A1E73. I sent it through yousendit.com.

haha, thanks for the welcome although my thanks is long overdue. :P I'm sooo glad to be back & now that I've gotten myself pretty settled down, I'm leaving with the fiance to NYC soon, so instead of leaving me mssgs on this site it'd be tons easier to email me. I can't give away my tmail address on here so just email me from my yahoo email since it's still the same. Well hear from you soon mister! xo Ronia
Posted by Witty86 on Jul 9, 2006 8:19 PM (GMT-04:00)
Yep, I'm in Vegas right now. We have the internet, but I have never had more than a few minutes on the computer. Today is our last day and I'm just worn out and I don't feel like going down to the pool with my mom. My sister is still sleeping (even though it is noon) and my dad just got to bed an hour ago since he was up all night playing. For the most part, its been a good week(with the expeception of the occasional fight between us). I thought it was kind of funny when Hawthorne Heights sat next to us on the plane. I don't like their music, but they seemed nice enough. My parents chatted with them about Dayton, Ohio since we used to live there and thats where they are from. hahaha. On the 4th I saw Jack's Mannequin perform at this festival. It was amazing. Another highlight of the trip was Cirque Du Soleil "Love." It was set to all Beatles music and the speaker system in the theater was brilliant, the best I have ever heard in my life. It was like hearing The Beatles in a new light. Besides that we have been just seeing all the hotels and stuff. I'm ready to go home. I miss my bed, cats and friends. So, Cleveland, huh? I went there once, to Sea World when I was 4. I actually remember it. My memory is freakishly good. Now, as for dusk and summer, I love it. It took some getting used to, but I think its good. Not nearly as amazing as his earlier work, but not much you can do about that.His old stuff means more to me and I can't really relate to this one yet. "Stolen" is probably my favorite. Lyrically, I find it the polar oppostie of "This Ruined Puzzle" but musically, I can see some similarities now that you pointed it out. The acoustic version is good too, but I'm just a sucker for anything acoustic, really. I like the simplicity. The only instrument I have ever played is violin in 4th grade...I SUCKED. Like, it was painful to listen to me playing it. I have no musical talent, I just really enjoy collecting and listening to it. Oh, and my hair turned out a brownish red. The box said "cocoa" I think. I really like it, even though its temp and already fading. I'll talk to you when I get back home!
p.s. do you have a myspace?

i totally know how you feel with d&s. i got it before it came out.. :S i DO plan on buyin it though because its so cheap anyways. and i like to have the liner notes. but when i first listened to it i thought it was sooooo good. but then the more i listened to it.. the more i didnt really like it. i LOVE so, long so, long but that was released on the old site a while back.. so it's not even really a "new" song. and i really like stolen and dusk and summer. and that is about it. i look @ my iTunes playlist count.. and it's like  for all the songs except dusk and summer.. that one has  haha. but i agree, its not the best work he's done. but i remember reading an article or email or something a while back that he wanted to do something different and lose his "emo" tag! good to hear you have the new rainer too! :) i'll have someone to discuss it with now!! today was the first day i decided not to listen to it. so instead i went into my room and dug around in this huge box i have of cds i dont listen to anymore and i found snow's greatest hits.. haha.. so i plugged that in an relived my life as a 12 year old, and thought about how in grade 7 i wanted to do an air band to C&C Music Factory's "everybody dance now" but another group of kids picked that song, so my friends and i chose a song by bonnie rait..how cool was i!!!. haha.. but now i'm much wiser... and listening to my daily dose of armor for sleep.
Posted by emo.sickness on Jun 29, 2006 5:05 AM (GMT-04:00)
hey, so to my suprise our record store had the new rainer maria.. and you are the only that i know that listens to them. i must say.. the new cd is like nothing i have heard for a long long time. i can listen to this from beginning to end over and over and over and over again. i have had it for like a week now.. and i can't seem to listen to anything else!! you must have it!! do you like it as much as me? and have you seen them yet?! :)
Posted by Christgurl06 on Jun 28, 2006 12:32 AM (GMT-04:00)
Hello, good friend. Why it has been since forever. How have you been?
Posted by Witty86 on Jun 27, 2006 2:33 AM (GMT-04:00)
I'm watching tv instead, "Friends" to be exact. My ipod is kinda dead right now and my speakers for my computer aren't accessible as of now. There is kind of a long story behind that, but in a nutshell, we discovered that my wood flooring was soaked and we needed to basically clear everything out of there for it to dry. My bedroom for the past couple of nights has been the family room. I'm all sore from sleeping on the couch. and I miss my privacy. Anyways, its totally okay that you didn't write back sooner. Believe me, I've gone through times where I just don't feel like being on the computer at all. I don't volunteer as much as I should (I do special olympics every year and I've done the soup kitchen a few times, but thats about it). Or go to church as often as I should. I mean, I believe in Christianity and all, but I don't know if I totally agree with religion perse, you know? Like, I have my own views on my faith and I don't agree 100% with the views of any church I have been to yet. Thats still something I am searching for I guess you could say. I also think its stupid to exclude a group of people as better than the other. I have friends from many different relgious backgrounds (or lack there of). Still, they are all amazing people and I love them. I kind of enough rainy days. They give me an exuse to just be lazy and sit around with a book. However, I have been going out a lot in the past couple of days. Mostly with my sister and her best friend, but whatever, we had fun together. In the past week we have seen 2 movies and gone out to lunch about 3 times. Tomorrow I'm going with my best friend Emily to buy "Dusk and Summer" and I am VERY excited about that. Then we will do a ton more shopping, and dye my hair when we get back to my house. It will be the first time I have ever done that. I hope we don't buy the wrong color and it turns out orange. We can make a good time out of anything so it should be a great day. So you play piano? My other best friend Nicole does. She has been playing for almost 10 years I believe. She is amazing, seriously. I envy her talent in a way. About Donnie Darko, I understand the main idea of the movie, its more of the smaller details, like how Frank got to Donnie (and why is Donnie always in a trance from him?), how the portholes work, ect. Its a great movie though. I'm not sure how I did on my test yet but I should find out soon. I'm just glad its finally summer. We are going on vacation to Las Vegas in a week (just booked it last night infact) so I'm looking foward to that. Talk to you later!
Posted by Witty86 on Jun 17, 2006 4:59 PM (GMT-04:00)
haha I understand. talk to you then!

lol, I love that song & Ben Fold's is nuts but good nuts. Well I'm leaving the 27th so it's only a few days now until I'm back home & maybe having better access to a comp. :) I'll write you as soon as I get home though & get on my computer, okay?? I'll ttys then. xo RJ
Posted by Witty86 on Jun 15, 2006 7:01 PM (GMT-04:00)
I need to make sure to study even more tonight and got TONS of sleep. My english exam was easy though. That class is a piece of cake for me. I love finding the hidden meanings in writing(I think thats part of the reason I love music so much as well, analyzing and finding meaning in the lyrics). I'm taking an AP course next year and I hope that goes well. I actually have to take that along with the standard 11th grade english (american literature) which I am quite excited about. I have some good classes next year (still bummed I had to drop journalism in favor of chemistry though). Before school starts I need to focus on having a great summer unlike last year. I basically did nothing and it sucked. Even though tomorrow is the last day, it doesn't feel like it, you know? Only thing I am going to miss are my friends in certain classes. Sure, I'm seeing them all at a party the next day (and one of them at drivers ed for another two weeks) but it wont ever be the same with all of us unless they put us in classes together again. So you said you have been to over 20 concerts, what all have they been? I've only been to a few: Dashboard (well, Chris doing a solo show) was my first last year, then for my friend's birthday she invited me to see kelly clarkson with her (total guilty pleasure and we actually had a great time, it was at one of the casinos so we got to run around there shopping and stuff before the show), then Green Day, and then 2 more Dashboard shows. I almost saw Death Cab for Cutie in April in NYC and then it fell through (emily, my best friend, still came to the city with us and we had a good time). That was pretty depressing considering how much I love death cab but I'm making it my goal to get to one of their shows in the near future (if they schedule any dates close enough). The webster theater in hartford sometimes has some good acts but my parents don't feel safe with me going since its in a bad part of town (regardless of the fact that I have friends that have been there and its fine). Once I get my license I'm going to a bunch of concerts no matter what my parents think. My mom is convinced the music I listen to is like some cult (which is pretty ridiculous), so it is really hard to get to concerts. My dad understands my love for music since he shares it with me. We don't listen to all the same stuff, but the principle of still there. Sometimes when I'm in the car with him he blasts Pink Floyd or The Who and stuff like that. Its cool. But that is one of the only times we get along; when it comes to music. It makes me sad that I can't get along well with my parents. I have just one more question for you before I go: what part of philly do you live in? Because my friend lives there and it would be pretty funny if you were anywhere near by. talk to you later.
Posted by Witty86 on Jun 15, 2006 6:59 PM (GMT-04:00)
^^Tally Hall. I think its really cool that you have something like writing. At least you have found something you like to do and have a talent for. I'm still kind of searching for that within myself. I have been seriously considering becoming a therapist though. Everyone tells me I would be really good at it. I'm pretty much the therapist to all my friends as it is. Hmmm, anyways, I like Motion City Soundtrack because its music to dance around to alone in your room. But shhh, don't tell anyone. If I tried to "bust a move" in public it might frighten young children. When I see them on warped, I am so dancing like a maniac and I wont even care. Its not like I'm ever going to see the people around me again. There is definitely a reason I have never been one for school dances. Though I am quite excited about prom next year. I don't know if I'll want to go if I don't have a date and all my friends do. That would be a bummer. I could probably have more fun inviting my best friend over (who doesn't go to my school) and watching Jake Gyllenhaal movies that night if that is the case (haha, we are both pretty obsessed with the guy...its a bonding thing, don't ask). Donnie Darko is such a great movie even though I have trouble figuring it out. But yeah, I was a strange, boy crazy kid, definitely. I would chase the older boys around the neighborhood when I was 4 trying to kiss them (never did reach that goal because they ran too fast for me). I've always loved guys, but I think it was all the peer pressure during elementary school that led to the lame cooties thing. I'm very, very picky with guys now. But then the ones I actually like don't like me back. I seriously had it bad for this guy during the winter, but he rejected me and...it was bad. I took it pretty hard. Now he is going out with one of my closest friends. She asked me if it was okay and I lied. I want her to be happy. I don't know why I still have feeling for him. He gave me those flip-floppy feelings in my stomach and looking him in the eyes literally made me melt. I don't like his as much now, but still. I don't know, I'll get over him eventually. I just have bad luck in that department. It would be nice to have someone right now, but I have so many other priorities as it is. Plus, my friends are amazing enough to make up for it. If I happen to find someone, hey thats great, but I'm just not really looking right now. The situation sounds complicated with your best friend. That must have been hard to see her with other people when the whole time you were in love with her. It is very strange when you realize the feelings you used to have for someone aren't there anymore or were never real. You shouldn't be afraid to put yourself out there! You seem like such a great guy, any girl would be lucky to be with you. However, I admit I am very much the same way. I don't really know if I am going to have much of a love life during the rest of my high school years. And you know what? that might actually be okay. I can wait until college for that if needed. Yeah, it sucks sometimes, but in the scheme of life, its not that big of a deal to not really date during high school. Plus, most guys at this age just want one thing and they definitely are not gettiing it from me. but oh gosh, I can not wait to move out and go to college. I'm hoping that its better than high school. My dream school is NYU, but I don't know if that is possible with the ridiculously expensive tuition and the difficult admissions. My grades haven't been so great this year. I failed my french exam for sure today. I didn't even fill out half of it. But my teacher is the most amazing person ever and she is letting me come in during the make-up period tomorrow to finish it. Thank God. You seriously have no idea how horrible that test was. I was falling asleep during it too and it was just all so frusturating. The ironic part is that most of my family is french. I just don't have a nack for foreign language. I n

you are going to be seeing rainer maria!!! i'm so jealous!! seriously. i love them. double life is one of my favorites and artificial light. <33 makes me wanna listen to it now actually... which i havent for a while. i only have that one disc though.. that came with the live dvd. one of my favorite things to watch when i got nothing to do.. or if i'm sick or something. soo taking a course over the summer!! that's never any fun. you said that you go to more shows during school? why is that? dont get many where you live?? i dont have a selection here either though. i always have to go on roadtrips to the next biggest city vancouver which is like a 10-12 hour drive. but it's usually worth it. this summer i'm going 14 hours away for warped tour. it'll be my 4th one in a row.. where i'll hopefully be getting to see armor for sleep. i went last year for them. but they didnt show! i was soo sad. it was kinda stupid how sad i got. and then in august i'm going to be going back to vancouver to see dallas green/city&colour. so i'm kinda looking forward for summer to start! as for now though.. i'll ttyl. :)

^Motion City City Soundtrack.
I definitely agree "Futures" was not Jimmy Eat World's best. 23 is my favorite track on the album as well though. But "Clarity"...wow. I don't care much for arena shows either, but it kind of depends on what type of show you are seeing. I saw Green Day back in September. J.E.W. opened for them, and to tell you the truth, I bought the tickets more for them than for them than Green Day, but I actually ended up enjoying Green Day more. It was just a really big, fun show. I have liked Green Day since way back, so they kind of hold a special place with me. I don't think I would ever see them again though because they aren't one of my top favorites and the tickets are way too expensive. Though it was pretty commical to see the parents there with their 8 year olds and start flipping out whe Billie Joe "masturbated" on stage. I have seen Dashboard 3 times, and all of them were small college shows. I even got to meet the guys when they performed at ECSU (which is about 5 minutes from my house; I pretty much had a heart attack when I found out they were playing a show there out of all the places in the country, especially since I live in the middle of nowhere). Anyways, all 3 shows were probably the greatest times I have ever had. The shows are so intimate. I would still see them at an arena if they would come anywhere close. Thats how much I love them. I really wish I could go to this tour since Say Anything is opening, but I have tickets for Jack's Mannequin the same day as the Boston show (which is still 2 hours away). I just love concerts in general though. I might be going to see Brand New next month *fingers crossed* and then warped tour in August. Its not that I think I'm old at 17, it just feels like yesterday I was a little kid. I miss being 6 years old. That was a fun age. Then I turned 7 and boys got cooties so I stopped hanging out with my best friend. Poor kid. I thought I was going to marry him someday though (haha, every little girl plans their wedding from the time they are 4, believe me). We used to play with toy cars together in his kitchen and watch disney movies. We even played "spin the helmet" once when I was 9 (since we didn't have a bottle)with the other neighborhood kids and I kissed his hand. ooohh boy, 3rd graders are so weird. I wonder what he is like now, I haven't seen him since I was about 11. I am looking foward to certain aspects of getting older, but I know it will be a few years until I reach that point. You know, independence and all of that. And I know it sounds weird, but I can't wait to get married and have kids. However, I really do need time to be young and single, rushing into marriage is not a good idea. I have yet to have a serious relationship though, so its probably far off in the future anyways. I have a feeling my parents will treat me the same way your's do even when I'm in college - its just their nature. It just makes me mad because they automatically think they are right just because they are the parent. Umm, no. Even Dr. Phil agrees with me (wow, I really am a loser...). School is out in two days! I can't wait. I need summer. I just wish my best friend wasn't abandoning me for 3 weeks next month for a summer program at UCONN. Ah, I'll miss her :( Well, I need to go study like mad, so I'll talk to you later! p.s. sorry this was so long. I always just go on typing tangents.

it WAS really good to hear back from my rosiejosie. :) anyways. i just wanted to tell you that i checked out the office. cause my friend and i had nothing to do before the movies the other night.. and needless to say.. i fell asleep!! BUT another source i have has told me to give it another shot. cause he says its oMgAmAzInG!! those are his exact words.. so i might check it again. hmm.. do you have any plans for this summer? any shows? i saw bright eyes last weekend. i dont know if you like conor or not.. but i thought he was amazing. and now after i have seen him i think he's even more amazing.. ahh anyways. talk to you later.

^^Say Anything is amazing. I have been listening to "...Is A Real Boy" pretty much nonstop since yesterday. I LOVE Jimmy Eat World too. I would say they are one of the bands that seriously got me into music. I've only had the chance to see them play live once, but it was a huge venue and I don't know if they are a stadium band. My best friend saw them in a this little club almost 2 years ago and she said they were amazing. Its hard to get to any concerts when you don't have a license, let alone a car. I'm hopefully getting both this August. Thats also when I turn 17. I can't believe I'm getting so old. I mean, not really old, but you get the picture. I'm looking foward to those moments where you have the car windows rolled down, blasting the music and a few close friends along with you. Kinda like in the movies. hah. Oh my, Katie (my sister) just got home sobbing. I guess she got in this huge fight with my mom. Lord, I have so been there. My parents are ridiculously strict. They don't give us ANY space for error. Seriously, I was at a party a few weeks ago and my mom acted like I commited a crime when I made her wait outside for me no more than one minute (I didn't even realize she was out there). And my dad grounded me a week ago when I rolled my eyes at him. They think I'm some horrible selfish brat when even I know I'm not. I hardly ask anything of them and I don't do half of the stuff the rest of my peers do. I don't know what I'm going to do when it comes time for college because I am financially dependent on them and they will not pay for anything away from home for the first two years. I don't want to have to get any student loans, but I might have to because I am literally at the end of my rope with them already, and I'm only half done with high school. Ah, as you can tell I tend to rambel as well. Nothing wrong with it. Man, I fell asleep at 5 and didn't wake up until 7:30. I didn't even mean to take a nap.

I can never think of good titles so I just kind of write dots. But from now on I will change them ;)and no, sorry, I don't have AIM. I tried to launch it on my new computer a few months ago but for some reason it didn't work. Its actually probably already on my computer, but I can't find it. I really should get a screen name though because my friends are always nagging me about it. I'll get my sister to help me with it soon. Then I'll make sure to get it to you.
Posted by Starshot on Jun 12, 2006 8:42 PM (GMT-04:00)
Yeah he is amazing. I used to have a bunch of his songs on my computer then it got a virus. The only ones I can remember are Pink Moon, Things Behind The Sun, One of These Things.. there was another one that I really liked but I can't remember what it was called.

A favorite Beatles album of mine has always been "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band." I'll never get sick of it. Anyways, my favorite band of all is Dashboard. Probably just because its something I can relate to so well...its kind of beyond words why I love them so much. Paramore is kinda power pop/punk, I guess? They are one of the few bands I like with a female lead singer. Its not that I don't like female singers, it just seems I tend to like bands with male singers. I think I might just like the sound of their voices better. Tally Hall is what they describe as "Wonky Rock". Its like pop, rock and r&b mixed together sort of? I know wildwoody really likes them (I think she is from Ann Arbor, where they are from). Its crazy, fun, great music. You can check out both of those bands on myspace if you are interested at all. Blah, I did one of my finals (science presentation) today and I pretty much bombed the oral portion of it. I was feeling really sick and I picked #1 out of the hat to go (it was creepy because right before I reached my hand in I said "I bet you with my luck I'm going to pick #1"). Okay, I got an 83, but thats not great for me. I'm kind of a perfectionist and I worked, really, really hard on this project. However, I did well on the rest of the phases, so I should still get at least an A. We had an awards ceremony today where all the seniors came out in their caps and gowns. Its was weird to see my sister up there. I can't stand her 98% of the time, but I know I'm gonna cry at her graduation. Maybe also partly from happiness (getting her out of my school, even though she is still going to be living at home). haha, just kidding...or am I? Do you have any siblings?
Posted by Witty86 on Jun 11, 2006 4:18 AM (GMT-04:00)
well, a few that I have been listening to a lot lately are: Arctic Monkeys, Brand New, Jack's Mannequin, Bright Eyes, Death Cab For Cutie, Fall Out Boy (haha, yes, I listen to Fall Out Boy, and I don't care what anyone thinks), Motion City Soundtrack, The Fray, Tally Hall, Paramore, The Shins, The Spill Canvas, Hellogoodbye, ect...too many to even name really. The Beatles are my second favorite band though. I've grown up with their music. I listen to a lot of my dad's stuff as well like Led Zeppelin, The Eagles, The Who, you know, all that good old stuff. I like Kanye West and few other rap songs here or there. I don't know, I'm pretty open to music. I wont disregard a whole genre, but there are some I tend to enjoy more.
My weekend has been okay. Shopping for some needed things last night, then working on a project and going to a birthday party today. My grandma is flying in tomorrow for my sister's graduation and I just found out my uncle will be here too. I feel bad that I can't visit with all my stupid school stuff to work on.

Yeah, Conan and Letterman are my faves
Posted by Witty86 on Jun 9, 2006 8:23 PM (GMT-04:00)
aw, I'm sorry you can't enjoy your summer. Mine sucked last year because I had drifted away from a bunch of my friends, but I hope this summer will be much better. I've made a bunch of great new friends at school and reconnected with my best friend (sooo happy about that, I don't know what I did without her). Only thing is that she is going to be gone for most of July for a science program at UCONN. My other best friend is my neighbor though so it should be okay. As for the music I listen to, oh my gosh, I don't even know where to begin. I guess I basically listen to a bunch of different sub genres of rock, and occasionally I'll mix it up with some random other stuff. How about you? Well, I have a very busy weekend ahead of me and need to get going. Talk to you later!
Posted by always_dc on Jun 9, 2006 4:33 AM (GMT-04:00)
Yeah, the show is stupid I agree, but did you get to see it when Chris was on it for the first time? He played the Best Deceptions acoustic and it was amazing I thought :)

and so she found me!! :D
Posted by Witty86 on Jun 8, 2006 8:10 PM (GMT-04:00)
Hey! Everything is relatively okay here. Just studying for finals, which is oh-so-fun *rolls eyes*. I took a part of my history exam today though and I got a 94, so I'm a in good mood. hah. How are things with you?

who has a new screen name?
Posted by dont_bother on Jun 8, 2006 11:31 AM (GMT-04:00)
haha, I'm actually in Austira at the moment. Isn't that crazy?? My home though, where my fiance & friends & my whole life is actually in California. I share an apartment with a few friends, but I'm moving out to live with the future hubby when I get back. Hopefully towards the middle, ernn...end of this month maybe I'll get to leave early because I've decided I need a break & I want to spend time with my family back home. Work here is actually really good & there's more oppurtunities at the moment. "Westerners" are booked alot more, haha it kinda stinks being stereotyped like that but it's working towards my advantage. I've gotten to do a few shows, which are nerve wracking but amazing at the same time. It's Spring so all the new lines come out with the season, I did Manish Arora which is actually an Austrian-Indian designer who's absolutely cooky as hell so obviously I love him & the last one I did was Ashish where I got to wear a gold medal (like Olympics style) down the runway. It had a whole Americana theme, sometimes it's so hard to hold back laughter while walking & thinking in your head "which one of you num-nuts in your right state of mind would actually wear this??" but who knows everyone could be wearing gold medals this season!?! It's gonna hit America soon, I just know it so you better go find one on ebay or somethin so you can be one of the hip kids. :P Being out here for so long has definitely changed me, both emotionally & physically. I think it's basically stress, but I'm beginning to gross myself out with the weight I've lost, I dunno I just feel drained & outta shape & want nothing more than to go lay out on the beach and eat tacos, *sigh*. btw your post really made my day, I'm glad that you see me that way & I think you may be confused. Your the one who's not the fan of the mushy mush. Remember when I said "Love Yah" @ the end of one of my messages & you thought I wanted to get hitched or something. Is that why you ran away?? Aww, don't be scurred Chris I'm harmless....well until you get me really mad but I'll worn you first, like the guy who kept bugging me by smaking his gum the other day. I told him to stop or I'd shoot & he didn't so I fired two warning shots......straight into his head! hehe (I hope you know where that's from; otherwise we can't continue this friendship much longer) mmkay, I've written soo much so Imma walk away from the keyboard now. buh-bye dorkvader. xo RJ aka RedJizzle HUH??
Posted by dont_bother on Jun 8, 2006 3:02 AM (GMT-04:00)
Yup, that's right. I didn't even know what happened to this site, but it's such a relief to come back & find that it's back as well as having some untrue things said about me that just made me realize that I didn't miss it as much. lol Actually, it's okay because I never let what others said about me affect me in anyway so there's no reason to start now. You know, I've confronted "miss what's her name" asking her why she seemed to all of the sudden be doing everything I was. The whole move etc...but there's nothing I can do about that, I guess some people need to feel their better than others & well that's just lame & I could care less if she see's this. & one more thing to get off my chest, I invited you to come to the FFTL concert & you wouldn't even have to purchase a ticket & all you had to do was affirm your coming & show up at the venue that way you could be on the list, it's not as complicated as you made it. Could you imagine going all the way across the United States & taking off on your own to pick up someone?? I'm sure you'd do the same. I wasn't even in my own vechicle, there is no sense in saying "she couldv'e picked me up, but she didn't." However, I didn't end up going because my life took me to California (read my profile, there's more there). My friend went & said it was fun, but I can live without ever seeing Hawthorne Heights live thanks. :P Well hope your doing well & although internet land was fun for alittle while I think I need a break because there seems to be more drama here, haha well hope your doing well chrisattack!! :P xo RJ
