my big comeback!
LUCY, I'M HOME!

pfft. miss me? :P

I do apologize for the my not so brief hiatus. then again, I'm sure everyone who ever did read this thing is used to it, hell a lot of people already removed me from their friends lists. eh, I'd say I'm upset but I'd be lying. I mean, I can't really blame them, can I? besides, they're missing out on my big comeback! yes. that's what I'll call it.

I'll admit, myspace has sort of taken over most of my online activities but don't you worry you LJ folk, I haven't ever forgotten about you. each night before I go to bed, I run through my friends page catching up on every single of you that actually posts. but don't you I'll tell you, their blogging system blows and a part of me really wants me to start writing here again. I think that part stems from the fact I have literally no writing talent and I should develop some. oh, and my vocabulary could use some work. on that note, I need each and everyone of you to suggest a book for me to read. deal? oh, so what's been up with me? hmm. school, work, dungeons and dragons games every saturday mornings, and concerts. ok, I've been going to a veritable TON of concerts lately. here's a list:

February 3rd - The Academy Is, Panic at the Disco, Hellogoodbye and Acceptance in Buffalo, NY
March 23rd - The Format, The Matches and Men, Women and Children in Rochester, NY
March 29th - Motion City Soundtrack, The Format, The Matches and Men, Women and Children in Buffalo, NY
April 9th - Death Cab for Cutie, Franz Ferdinand and the Cribs at Cornell/Ithica, NY
April 20th - Alkaline Trio and Against Me! in Niagara Falls, NY
April 21st - Fall Out Boy, All-American Rejects, Hawthorne Heights and From First to Last in Buffalo, NY
April 27th - The Horrorpops, The Briefs and Left Alone in Buffalo, NY

wow. let me tell you, that was an expensive few months. combined with the costs of tickets, food, gas, merch and me being too generous with my spare tickets and not asking people to pay for them. lets just say I'm not going to keep that up because I'm sick of having whatever generosity I display go very unappreciated. but none the less, the music was very much enjoyed and much fun was had.

oh, again, speaking of concerts, I'd like to go see MC Lars this coming Wednesday at Steele Music Hall. shitty venue but the following bands are playing: The Matches, Forgive Durden and Whole Wheat Bread. I'm guessing that MC Lars isn't headlining and the only other band I'd like to see is Whole Wheat Bread for just one song so I might have to pass and try to pick up a shift at work instead.

another note. I have a spare ticket to see Taking Back Sunday at RIT on the 6th of May. contact me if you're interested. if you have a problem with my music tastes, keep them to yourself or go fuck yourself with a barbed dildo. kthx!

what else have I been up to? music! wee. here is a list of the following albums (not in any particular order) I've recently procured that may interest people:

Head Automatica - Popaganda
Thursday - A City by the Light Divided
Punk Goes 90's
The Dresden Dolls - Yes, Virginia
The Hush Sound - So Sudden
Taking Back Sunday - Louder Now
Tool - 10,000 Days
MC Lars - The Graduate
Guster - One Man Wrecking Machine EP
Murder By Death - In Bocca Al Lupo

how many albums have I downloaded in the last month? lemme check. about 215 at last count. makes my brain happy. but so does a real life re-enactment of super mario brothers. thx dave. that alone was better than watching silent hill. *blasphemy* though I did enjoy the movie on a small level as the directing was brilliant in many parts of the movie.

so, lets recap. I need new books to read, someone to buy my spare TBS ticket and... a roommate! yes folks, I have this house all to my lonely little self. I mean, it has it's bonuses for living on your own. such as playing your music as loud as you want or running around naked. not that I do, but the option is there! leave lots of comments so I know you're still alive and read this thing. much <3.



words like violence
break the silence
come crashing in
into my little world
Painful to me
pierce right through me
can’t you understand
oh my little girl

Current Mood: good good
Current Music: Anberlin - Enjoy the Silence (Depeche Mode)

That liveaction Mario thing is the most brilliant thing that ever was. It's true art, man.

I like your song, too.

As for books, read some Mark Twain. He's awesome. So awesome he ought to be studied by schoolchildren everywhere. Oh wait: he is! Then all is right with the world.
afk47 From: afk47 Date: May 1st, 2006 09:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
and what books would that be my dear friend? *lazy*

I laughed, and I had to watch it again.
I hope they won their talent show.


I'm going to tell you to read anything Chuck Palahniuk - but I just finished both "Choke" & "Diary".. they were each amazing.

Anyone that can write things like this and make them sound as beautiful, well I just may want to marry them.

Books

It's been a long time since I read them, but if I remember correctly, I would suggest In Cold Blood by Truman Capote, and Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. Ender's was actually the only book my one brother read all the way through in high school, if that tells you anything.

And I'm jealous you saw The Format twice in one month. They need to come here. Seriously.

And you still need to send me Dresden Dolls and The Hush Sound next time we're both on AIM. I must acquire them and learn the songs before the show in July. <3!

Re: Books

hmm... noted. and I'll send out the music first chance I get. :P
From: melliemelro Date: May 1st, 2006 01:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
Books to read.

Anything that would be considered "The Classics" notice how everyone talks about them, but nobody's actually read them.

Be one of the chosen few.

Haha, no prob on the mario link, I figured you'd like it. I amazingly, only sent that to a few people via AIM... just posted it.
_phantom_glitch From: _phantom_glitch Date: May 3rd, 2006 11:55 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh books... umm...

What kind do you like? Only one I can think of off the top of my head is Black Sun Rising. I can't remember who it's by though. It's a fantasy type... or would it be si-fi? I think it's more fantasy.

Oh! Ok, time for me to sound like a huge nerd/dork... but if you like super hero novels, yes novels.... I read a few Spider-Man ones [by Diane Duane; The Venom Factor, The Lizard Sanction, The Octopus Agenda] a while back. XD
