Bonobo

today was a lit­tle bet­ter. i only saw the lit­tle fuck­ing bonobo twice. unfor­tu­nate­ly both times he made some sort of greet­ing direct­ed at me. also unfor­tu­nate, he was with his red­head­ed cock­warmer one of those times. The Vagi­na Mono­logues were awe­some though. Women like that are cool. all of the peo­ple bitch­ing about it are fools. my boys are com­ing up to vis­it me over break. its gonna be good times.

2.19.02

Well I have my camera…getting it to work is the hard part. Slow and steady wins the race except I have alot of work to do. I am almost ready to burn my old sketch­book jour­nal. Part­ing with it will not be bit­ter­sweet. I’ll be glad to see it go. Besides, I’m sav­ing the good stuff.

Concerts as of 2002

mom is show­ing up today for Junior Par­ents’ Week­end. I hope this is a great expe­ri­ence. We have porn­star seat­ing at table 1 and table 6 for the meals. i’m not get­ting any work done this week­end, i can already tell you. con­certs i have been to: The Beach Boys: I think I was 8. All I remem­ber was that there was a huge col­umn right in front of me that said “I (heart) Sum­mer.” Jim­my Page and Robert Plant: Fresh­man in High School. I went with some guys from Kmart. Total­ly awe­some con­cert. They played all the best Zep­pelin (but not Stair­way dammit) and stuff from their newest album. My seats were in the nose­bleed sec­tion and I had a con­tact buzz from all the gan­ja smoke which made me crave White Cas­tles after the con­cert. Any­thing that makes you want to eat White Cas­tles is a very dan­ger­ous sub­stance. The Smash­ing Pump­kins: Saw them for the first time at Pur­due with my bud­dies Bri­an and Phil. Dur­ing their Machi­na tour. It blew me away. I just wish it hadn’t been in an audi­to­ri­um so I could have jumped around all crazy­like. May­Day 2000: The 2nd best twen­ty dol­lars I have ever spent. Papa Roach, Three Doors Down, Blood­hound Gang and Gods­mack. All day. Papa Roach sucked, 3DD was ok, I saw so many breasts when Blood­hound Gang came on because they were pro­mot­ing their “Hooray for Boo­bies” album. Gods­mack was CRAZY. It rained just enough to make it inter­est­ing and we ripped up the sod from the lawn and were throw­ing it all over. A sea of mosh­ing. it rocked. Sum­mer San­i­tar­i­um Tour: Sys­tem of a Down. Powe­man 5000, Kidrock, Korn and Metal­li­ca. Anoth­er all day thing. It got kin­da old because I only want­ed to see PM5K and Metal­li­ca. PM5K kicked a whole lot­ta ass. Metal­li­ca was…interesting. Het­field had fucked up his back and wasn’t there, so Jason did the singing, and the gui­tarist from Sys­tem of a Down played with them. Kidrock even bust­ed out the turnta­bles. Once in a life­time event. I still don’t know whether I liked it or not… Metal­li­ca: They gave a free con­cert since James wasn’t there. THIS WAS TOTAL METAL. I got an extra tick­et and took my friend Bri­an with me. Our seat were in the bal­cony direct­ly across from the stage. The speak­ers tried to take off my head it was so loud. I think my ears bled and I rup­tured my spleen. I loved it. The Smash­ing Pump­kins: I saw their 2nd to last con­cert ever! Total tran­scen­dence. Touch­ing, mov­ing, exis­ten­tial bliss. Crap­py seats though. The Toad­ies: The best 20 dol­lars I have ever spent. I want­ed to get to Bogart’s ear­ly so we could get in good posi­tion. We did. I spent the whole con­cert hold­ing on to the grate and singing along at the top of my lungs. After­ward, I made us go around back and get their auto­graphs. It was well worth it see­ing as they broke up a month lat­er. Xfest 2k1: I don’t remem­ber all of the bands but here is a good list… Linkin Park, Sta­t­ic X, non­point, Live, Ramm­stein, Our Lady Peace, and a bunch of oth­ers. Sta­t­ic X was intense as was non­point, Live is always good. I was in the mosh pit so long that i was soaked with my sweat and the sweat of oth­ers by the time I left. I got kicked in the head four times, pro­tect­ed a hot chick from get­ting tram­pled, and helped some strip­pers over the fence because they prob­a­bly want­ed to go get it on with the bands back­stage. Live brought me back from the dead. I was exhaust­ed by the end, but that was well worth it.

Valentine’s Day my ass

Valentine’s Day my ass. At least my moth­er loves me. This is the sto­ry of my life. I ordered a web­cam yes­ter­day and hope­ful­ly I’ll get it hooked up and func­tion­ing as a part of my web­site once it arrives. I fig­ured out what I want my domain name to be when I get a web­site. organicmechanic.org. It has a nice ring to it I think, and it is a para­dox. I am an organ­ic being that behaves in a mech­a­nism (soci­ety) that is at the same time an organ­ic sys­tem with peo­ple as the mech­a­nism. Oh yeah. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, the way the world works, I have to pur­chase the name from some­one, even though it does not belong to any­one. Sup­pos­ed­ly that is why peo­ple can sell it. Fuckin’ cap­i­tal­ists.
