Writer's Block: Love is deaf

Could you spend the rest of your life with someone who had horrific taste in music? How important is it to you to share your love of music with a good friend or romantic partner?


No. No I could not. I have ruined friendships over liking shit bands.

And frankly, good taste in music is more important than most other factors in determining a relationship.

it's good if they have it, but being open to learning is equally as acceptable.

Writer's Block: I'm with the band

If you could be a member of any musical group, past or present, which group would you choose and why?


Honestly, I wouldn't. Tour manage, maybe. But play? Never.
SHOWS THIS YEAR (As I remember)

6/30 Warped (Less Than Jake, Shad, Hit The Lights, Streetlight...) - Cricket (With Will and Paul)
7/14 The Fray W/Jack's Mannequin - Dodge Theater (Will, we only stayed for JM)
8/21 Taking Back Sunday - ASU (Matt 1)
8/22 Green Day w/Franz Ferdinand - US Airways Arena (Will)
9/19 Fall Frenzy (BLINK 182!) - Tempe Beach Park (Will, Sophia, Allie, Aspen and Jared)
10/28 Cobra Starship w/A Rocket to the Moon, The Maine, VersaEmerge - The Marquee (Will)
11/20 Say Anything w/ Eisley, Moneen, Miniature Tigers - The Marquee (solo)
12/7 Less Than Jake w/Cage, The Swellers - The Marquee (Paul)

I feel like there was others too...

Every show was excellent, even if we thought we were going to catch fire at Green Day, got sunburned at Warped, couldn't get in the crowd for JM, got hit in the chest at blink, went alone for Say Anything and had my ears bleed with Cage. I went with the wrong person to TBS, but it was worth it to see them, you know?

So my mom's dating my godfather. this is profoundly weird and I don't know how to feel about it, really. he's a great guy and all, but. i don't know. it's really fucking with my dad too and he's all falling apart which he admits is stupid because he never speaks to either of them but now i'm really freaked out because i like to see mom happy but hate to see dad hurt and i've known julian my entire life and he introduced my parents but.

godammit this shouldn't bother me this much but here i am crying. what the fuck.

Retarded in love.
