playing a little catch up

Got my computer back. Finally, I can be anti-social again. Also, Best Buy is stupid. With every passing malfunction that requires interaction with a place of business, especially a large corporation, the more I think the Amish have the good life. Or possibly Buddhists. I don't know. I can't put into words what I'm thinking, but whew, in my mind, it's so prolific.

here's looking up your address

I had a "trying" day today. As in, I tried to do a lot of things and 50% of them were a poop shoot. But I can't really complain too much. In comparison to the people that caused a moderately large automobile accident on my street today, I had a pretty okay day. The air conditioning in my car is dead, the ATM in the Commerce bank was broken, OK Watch Shop is closed til Sept 17th, Isabelle lies on her "brb" signs, and Best Buy keeps lying about the due date of my computer, but at least I didn't get hauled off to the hospital on a gurney. Or worse, have to suffer the great torture that Gizmo had to endure while I rubber necked on the porch. GOD, SUCH TORMENT! I'm so glad I'm not Gizmo. He's got the toughest life ever.

it could be bullshit

I felt pretty shit today, but be that as it may, still made the trek up to Cinnaminson to get some work done. If James wasn't such a great person, I don't know if I'd still be able to work up there. Be that as it may, he told me about this thing called the Blood Type Diet. My brother heard of it and read off a slew of things that people with A type blood (like myself) shouldn't have and ironically enough, most of those foods I don't even like to begin with. I looked it up, though, and fuck if it doesn't say I'm not supposed to drink soda. FUCK THAT! Coca Cola and I are homies for life! If you're interested, and know your blood type, check it out.

on another note, don't be fooled by the above photo. Jamie isn't the new singer. But she has such a nervous lil whistle. Makes me want to pinch her cheek!

who fights about that?

Today I was dizzy. Very dizzy. All day. So dizzy that I didn't trust myself behind the wheel or carrying a computer. Got my mom to take me to Best Buy so she could help with both of those things, but Best Buy lied and it was all in vain. Could have just stayed home and felt the room spin. Later, my mom made dinner and I think when she gets these new knives she ordered on Sunday, she's going to get her own show on the Food Network. You should have seen her extravagant chopping moves. Those garlic cloves didn't know what hit them!

something really depressing, like a Baby Gap

I was going to try to get to bed a smidgen earlier than normal, but something distracted me. No, not Gizmo. Actually, it was The Fantastic Four. I wanted to see how they all got their powers so I thought I would only watch a few minutes of it and then next thing I knew, it was 5am. And it ended at 5:25 so I just stuck it out. The movie was rather stupid, but I guess it did suck me in. And I heard the 2nd one was even worse? Doesn't seem possible!

life's little obstacles

Today I finally met little Samuel Wyatt. This little guy is my brother's baby. I don't normally blog too, too much about my family, but I figure this picture alone is worth posting up. Since nobody tried to pressure or force me into the whole "hold the baby" situation, I was in the position to take too many photos. But considering the lack of baby pictures there seems to be of me in this house you can probably never have too many.

to be honest, I didn't want to live no mo'

I think we might make it to Octobot if we keep things moving along as expediently as we did tonight! And to think for the majority of today, I didn't think I'd even be able to make it up there. Furthermore, I need to work on rippin my vocals like Dave Grohl. I run out of rock after just a few songs. How does he do it?! How?!

i hate to hear the raindrops

You really have to watch what you wish for because when you finally get it, it'll not only be ten fold, but it'll be at a time when, yes, you needed the money, but it would have been nicer when you didn't "need" it so you could enjoy it rather than do all this work only to still be exactly as poor as you were before you developed carpal tunnel.

yeah, that was a run-on. my hands are too tired for good grammer.

c'mon, we're not children

The state of my bracelet is worrisome.

Any day now it's going to fall off.

I just know it.

Better get started on a new one, toots!

everytime I think of you, I always catch my breath

Watch this and see me try to take a much too dark video and try to make it salvageable. On a similar note, if we're lucky, the computer will recognize the video camera and I'll get some better videos up here. At least, clearer ones. But I'm not making any promises. Thus far its USB connection port is all decoration!

ps. I'll upload "Open Letter" tomorrow, duder

I never tried to creat a "wow"

I was going to post with a video today, but of course, the video taken on MY camera is fucked up. In my heart of hearts, I knew it was going to. I've come to the final conclusion that anything longer than 3 minutes long gets fucked up. Three minutes in it starts skipping and stalling and then it'll fix itself eventually, but there's still a big chunk of it that's a complete mess. I'm about ready to give up! Tomorrow I'm not going to let myself forget my parent's camera which I went to all the trouble of clearing off for them. And it was so hard to do and all. They'll probably never even look at those pictures. Ironic since when I was looking at a really nice camera in Best Buy she said, "this is the kind of thing you guys should get me for Christmas." HA! If nice cameras were meant only to sit and collect dust then I'd agree, but hells to the no, I want that camera! But I'm told I have to buy Andrew a car before he'll get it for me. Hm. I don't think this camera is in my future.

lava, lava, love

Hello Tokyo is awesome. And even though their secrets are by far more spectacular than mine, I don't hate! Got nothing but love for this band from Brooklyn, NY (as they like to claim). Even if their drummer is kind of skeevy....

we were born to love one another

I was going to post with a poll today concerning something Matt wore to the movies to settle a "dispute" but something so much better happened that it had to be documented! Today I had a serious scare. I thought I lost my rings (pictured). I was so scared that I went so far as to call the last place Jamie and I ate at and everything. I could have laid claim to a ring that said "Kaitlyn" on it, but that would never fill the void that would be left without these two seriously, seriously important rings. It was a scary few hours. Every time I thought about not being able to EVER find them, I felt sick. I suppose I shouldn't put such a high premium on material things such as this, but the sentimental value makes them irreplaceable! And, they of course were in a stupid place. My mother and I seriously scoured the house and when I got home I searched my car and where were they? In the box where I keep all my dangly earrings. I have NO idea why I would have put them in there. I must have done it absent mindedly because the dangly earrings I wore yesterday were still out on the dresser. Must have meant to put the earrings in and put the rings in instead. Which is how I found them. I thought about everything I wore yesterday and tried to trace my steps that way. I even looked in my boots! haha But, be that as it may, they're safe and sound and on my finger and no doubt I'm going to be MUUUCCCCHHHH more careful! Little fuckers.

I could bend over and pick up a pencil

Today I went to an open mic that I was invited to in Pitman and came away with many kudos and got added to a bill on Saturday. Pitman would seem to be a tiny nowhere little place, but there was actually quite a little audience. And it was so quiet when I was up there that I swear you could hear a pin drop. People were actually listening. What a bizarre notion. And plus, I saw some acoustic metal and an awesome song about Jack the Ripper and Alligator Alcohol. And of course, I got a bad ass Blues Brothers record for $4.99. Apparently Pitman, NJ is where it's at.

I'm just an old hand that's been around a long time

Finally got a little karaoke fix at Woody's in Philly. I'd been there once years ago and was nearly accosted by a very aggressive Puerto Rican Lesbian. I guess either I was too intimidating in my rendition of "What's Up?" by the 4 Non Blondes or I wasn't lookin' too hot last night because I was completely ignored by all and any lesbians on the prowl. Or perhaps people supposed Jamie and I were a "thing". But I will have you know, we are brothers, not lovers, thank you very much. Anyway, check out this amazing video Jamie shot while I was in the bathroom. I heard it while I was in there, but I guess I really just didn't understand. Thank God I left my bag and camera behind. Enjoy!

ps. He's singing "Back to Black" by Amy Winehouse. I swear he is.

why did they make a Grease 2?

Today I went to yet another party. This time it was part going away party and part "congratulations you've been medically discharged from the air force" party - thus the little army man on my cupcake ready to introduce Jamie to her maker. It was one of the only parties I've attended in which being straight was not only in the minority, but was somewhat frowned upon. During pin the vagina on the amputee, I proved myself to be quite straight and pinned the vagina on her enormous cans. But that's quite alright, I'm pretty secure in my sexuality. Besides, I meant to do that, I had a goal in mind to make her a Vagina Super Hero! String up the battleship banner, boys; Mission Accomplished!

what's wrong, cats got your tongue?

My dear friend, Becky, one of my oldest of friends and probably the only girl in my grade that was happy that I got the role of Ariel in our spring concert, did something quite unthinkable. She graduated from college with two degrees. A teaching and math degree. The teaching one I might be able to accomplish, but a math degree? PAH! Not in my lifetime. She's an inspiration to me in the fact that she's living her dream. Despite the fact that some people find her "dreams" to be rather simple. Ever since I've known her, and I've known her since the 4th grade, she's wanted to be a 3rd grade teacher and that's what she's basically doing! If she can live out her childhood dreams, maybe there's hope for me yet. Despite how that my "dream" is rather improbable to say the least. Anyway, "congrads", cow!

so I proceeded to get drunk and cry

Since nothing can ever be done right when it's left to my parent's camera, which either runs out of memory because my mother wastes space during a show or they just never delete anything, here is yet another half video of a live performance of Jenell and the Yets. One of these damn days, I'm going to get EVERYTHING off this camera and get a good, clean, full song for you! Til then, enjoy some of "Favorite Face".

you guys should become invisible

Some people
find this look
to be totally erotic.

And to those

You're welcome!

was that fun?

Good news, friends; tonight I was resurrected. My computer, on the other hand, made the ultimate sacrifice so I could go on and died today. I really didn't need that in my life, but all may not be lost. Though probably $200 will be. That's cheaper than getting a new computer and losing all my shit, but still, I'm seriously digging myself into quite a hole this summer. I've been trying to save money and yet now it's all going away. Just waiting for something terrible to happen to my car now. Any friggin' day now.
In other news, I'm getting a "blonde" complex.

wanna see me tapdance?

Jenell O'Boogie (January 7, 1984 - August 2, 2007) was a singer/songwriter from Southern New Jersey. She was listed on Joel Madden & Nicole Richie's Video Diary as one of the twelve "promising musicians of the new millennium" and was hailed as highly talented by such critics as Mel "Trouble" Torment, Jalisa Upson, and Roger Smith. However, her career was cut short when she died of an overdose of Pepsi on Thursday evening at age 23. She was the sister of Wilder Konschak, of Just Us League fame, and twin of Jamie Lynn McCarthy, bassist of the Yets.

holy cow, you do it to yourself, you do

This is my favorite shirt. It's a genuine vintage John Lennon shirt. My mother bought it in the 70s; it's a genuine, real deal Lennon shirt. It's pretty awesome. On the front, being somewhat distorted by my lucious locks, John is giving a peace sign and the clouds say "Imagine". On the back, it says "give peace a chance" in a cool sort of text. I've yet to find another "band shirt" or Beatles/Lennon memorabilia as awesome. If there was a fire, I'd want to take this shirt, the penguin Harry gave me, and.... hmm.. what else.... OH YEAH... Gizmo! ;)

edit: I would put the shirt on, grab the penguin and also my Lennon art and stick a few CMC photos in the plastic sleeve AND THEN grab Gizmo. though I'm pretty sure he'd be clung onto me and I'd have to put the shirt on the penguin instead.
