1 Hour, 33 Minutes, 47 Seconds

Brief history. Five years ago I was interested in a fire cape. I died a few attempts and had no reason to try again. I'm into the task system now and could not have picked a better time to get the cape. Call me a noob or whatever, but I'm just using what Jagex gave me. Something I'd kind of wanted for 5 years and now had a reason to get. It took an hour, 33 minutes and 47 seconds, but then Jad erupted into a giant ball of light and disappeared.     So we beat on, boats against the current.

Something more important

Forget that last entry. A year ago today, AJ and Nick were taken away from us in my area. They were hit and killed by a train over a bridge on the highway. I know it wasn't the smartest idea, but it was a Sunday on a commuter line, where trains aren't supposed to run. The train was not scheduled and was traveling backwards, without the driver watching the front. NJ Transit claims that the driver put on the emergency brake as soon as he saw them, but that turned out to not be true.   When AJ fe

Shoutout to Ronnie Radke

For breaking a girl’s hand and splitting two girls’ heads open from throwing microphone stands and then getting arrested for that and the huge amount of drugs found in his dressing room.   I swing microphones, but never toward the audience. Microphones themselves and the stands are heavy. I saw the video and I was there. He whipped them into the crowd at full speed. It was terrible. Who even does stuff like that. This guy has a huge ego too. He's not really that nice to the fans. Also he went

FestEVIL 2012

I have a challenge after every concert/festival, where I have to try to sum up how amazing an experience it was. First off, We Came as Romans will never put on a bad show. They are a post-hardcore band founded on brotherhood and love.     Sidestage viewing   The Word Alive   AND I GOT A SQUID HAT

Patent Pending

I had the pleasure of sharing a stage with this band tonight. This is Joe, lead singer of Patent Pending. This guy gave the most amazing speech tonight. It's kind of a long story about his personal experience but here's what I got:   "Some people wear a lot of bracelets because they like bracelets, some people do it because they're ashamed of the decisions they've made. If you see somebody struggling to get through the day or notice that something's weird, take a minute of your time to help t

ATTENTION JERSEY PEOPLE

Okay sorry but I have to do these blogs every once in a while.     Hey guys! Hope your days are going well. So my band, Broken Hinge, has a few shows coming up in October. The most important is the Battle of the Bands on the 14th in Garwood, NJ at The Crossroads. This is a very big opportunity for us. The max we have to sell for the best set time is 50 tickets, but we have 100 tickets in total. Why stop at 50?   We want to bring in as many people as we can, to go absolutely crazy when we p

Romeo and Juliet

They were like 12 and 14 so if they existed, they would be like those middle school couples that write "LOVE U BBY!!" on each other's walls all day and they post statuses about each other and cuddling pictures and they've only been dating for 2 days.   Then die.

Things I've learned in the past 6 months

-It is not frowned upon to show up a half hour to an hour late for practice. Chill sessions before and after are usually customary.   - Do not peak your bass volume. Even though bass doesn't stand out, it evens out the guitar and adds another layer to the rhythm section. You will be heard. No need to turn this band into a Skrillex show because your E string will wreck the sound.   -Rhythm guitarists and lead guitarists go hand in hand. Neither is more important and each is responsible for th

If you want to break up with me

I'm real understanding, all you have to do is say so. In a strongly worded essay no less than 16 pages with no spelling or grammatical errors. Use 10 specific examples, and use 6 sources citing them correctly in a works cited page with one inch margins on parchment paper in correct MLA format within 24 hours of your decision.   I would also like to see note cards, numbered and with sources, which you've used in the brainstorming process of your essay.

Amazing show

Definitely one of the best of my life. So proud to have shared a lineup with Casino Madrid and A Faylene Sky. However, this thing took place in a freaking apartment. And there were two signed bands on the lineup. First off, there was no parking and we had to carry all our gear up five flights of stairs, which sucked for all bands. When I say this was an apartment, it was literally a music venue in an apartment building. You can see Casino Madrid’s merch table over on the left on a couch. A

I was involved in a four car accident

Four cars were involved and I was in the back middle. The front car was turning so me and the car in front of me stopped. This girl hit me in the back which then caused everyone to hit each other. She ran out apologizing and saying she was fixing her hair and wasn’t paying attention and how her brakes weren’t checked either. Everyone was okay, the girl and myself were freaking out and the kid in front of me was chill. The three of us were Ramapo students and the woman in front was from Massac

Double bass+Double bass

I was supposed to be the replacement bassist for the band, but now we have had a breakthrough. We keep the old bassist as long as shows don't interfere with school, and we have two bass players. Also, our drummer has a double bass pedal so the audience gets quadruple bass.   It actually sounds good too, because I'm playing rhythm bass by adding fills while the other dude plays lead riffs and we both get solos and stuff. Hopefully we'll win this battle of the bands next month and if we do, we

Big Opportunity

This band that I recently joined booked a show with A Faylene Sky and Casino Madrid at The Space Station in Jersey City. They are both signed bands and there will be a talent scout from their label at the venue.   If any of you are in the area, I have tickets to sell. This is gonna be a great show, we're gonna give it our all and hope it gets us somewhere. Tickets are $12, but if you actually show up at meet me at the door I'll give them to you for 8. Doors at 6:30

Somewhere in my house

There is a picture of an 8 year old me standing on the New Jersey side of the Hudson River with the World Trade Center towers in the background. That picture was taken on September 9th, 2001 before my visit to the top of one of the towers. This attack happened 15 minutes away from where I live. If I stayed home from school and happened to pass by my living room window I would've seen the whole thing.

Prove to me

My History professor once told me about a philosophy class he took freshman year in college. The final exam involved giving each student a blank piece of paper. There was only one question: "How can you prove to me that there is not a little green man inside of your watch moving the hands to tell you the time?"   One student finished in 5 minutes and walked out, the rest of the kids including my professor took the whole period. The kid that finished early got an A, and everyone else got a D-.
