Merry Christmas!

Something about the whole Christmas season just irks me constantly. It’s like nobody cares about the wintery aspect of Christmas, probably because most people don’t get enough snowfall anymore or they get too much. Also the whole, BUY BUY BUY IT NOW FOR YOUR GREEDY OFFSPRING! Too much snow and it’s a hassle and a problem that needs dealing with and with too little snow it just doesn’t feel like Christmas. I want to go outside and get frostbite from hours of intense Snowball Wars, sledding and one-horse open sleigh rides!

The Good Ole Days

What happened to evenings of sitting in front of the fireplace with a cup of cocoa and a blanket cuddling your cat/dog/hamster and watching one of the classic Holiday movies! That used to be the pinnacle of my year, nothing else came close in my book. Well…maybe when school got out for summer…eh. The only thing I really hated about the Christmas season was “A Christmas Story”. I really liked the movie, except for the little brother. OH.MY.GOD. Scut Farkus was more appeasing to me, and that guy make me want to put a knife through his forehead.

Did you know that the actor who played him, Zack Ward, was in Transformers? He dies fast. I lol’d.

This Christmas is the first I have ever not celebrated it with my family. Right now I am alone in my apartment looking for a job(with no luck) and a tiny Christmas tree. It’s a tad disheartening not being with my dad or my mom or of course the rest of the family, but I really can’t say that I hate the predicament that I’m in. I miss the warm feeling that once came from putting up the Christmas tree ornaments and decorating the house with tinsel and tree needle pollution. Also massive snowball fights with my friends and romping through my woods. But since I’m an adult(lol) the time for playing is, unfortunately, over and I have to tend to matters of a more…mature nature. Now if you’ll excuse me I must be off for my rendezvous with the Barney Christmas Special. EEEEEH OMG HE SO AWESOME!

I hope you all have a great Christmas and a bad ass New Year!

This Is Not My Sweat :[

Hey there you little goblins, how are you? You’ve all probably heard of the heat wave affecting us right? Well this weekend, I attended the first everThe two-day music festival was absolutely amazing! It was held at the Kansas Speedway in Kansas City and the music was going on inside and outside of the stadium. I must admit that even though I’ve only been to a few concerts/festivals, Kanrocksas topped the list after last night. Not only did I get to see some of my favorite bands up close, I got to enjoy it with Megan McGinnis and her family and friends 😀 I was sooo happy! She gave me a fright on Friday after she nearly passed out at the Arctic Monkeys concert, and again Saturday morning. Send her some get well wishes if you get the chance.

With any kind of concert in August, there’s bound to be heat. This heat doubles when it’s in Kansas. But despite this overwhelming heat, people still party themselves sick and sweaty. Nearly every guy at the festival went shirtless, whether he was chubby or skinny, muscly or chest-hair ridden. After an hour or so just standing out in the sun, people just stopped giving a fuck. Everyone and their mother was tan, burnt, hot, and slimy. I felt so disgusting just breathing in the afternoon air. When it came time for a band to perform, people crowded together so close that bodily fluids became one. At one point I was positive that none of the sweat on me was mine…I hope I was wrong.

So to break it down, the music was fucking awesome, the heat was fucking terrible, and the experience was fucking memorable. The Flaming Lips, The Black Keys, Ween, Bassnectar, 12th Planet, Kid Cudi, Cage the Elephant, Flogging Molly, The Arctic Monkeys, Fitz and the Tantrums, Girl Talk, UME, Primus, OK Go, Eminem, and Muse were the bands that we saw, although there were tons more that we weren’t able to see. We were up front for most of the bands which was awesomesauce. Muse put on the best show by far, next to The Flaming Lips.

The first night of the music festival we had planned to camp out in a tent, but once the day ended and we got to the camp site, waking up in a tent in Kansas in direct sunlight seemed like a bad idea. Instead, a friend and I slept outside in our sleeping bags under the stars, while Megan chose to sleep in the back of the van. If you’ve ever been camping you’ll know that waking up in a sleeping bag is shitty business, but waking up outside in a sleeping bag is downright disgusting. Whoever thought that putting the most moisture absorbing fabric on sleeping bags was a good idea should have been sent to Guantanamo Bay. The pillow I was sleeping on? Wet as a horny teenager 😦 I had a spot big enough for my face that was dry. It was a miserable experience that night, and was made worse by the unexpected fireworks that follow Eminem’s act. Rappers do not need fireworks. Fuck you Eminem. Fuck you.

After I got home I looked at my guitar and just felt anxious. I wanted to be able to play on stage in front of thousands of people one day, but I know that probably won’t happen 😛 All I can do is daydream about being on a hot stage, jumping around, and having a good, sweaty time. At least on stage I’m not being molested by other peoples sweat.
