Meh,today was long and boring.Worked a four hour shift in jolly old Matalan.
Anyway, so I take a random "What kind of emo are you?" quiz on some quiz site and I get this result......
You're ! You're not Emo at all! You hate
those wussy little emo kids.
What Kind of Emo Kid are You?
brought to you by Quizilla
Just because I answered that I liked Atreyu and that I'm not straight edge?? Hmm... Interesting.
Just had a dear friend, Becky, around for a few hours. It conspires we are both after the same guys (hey, gotta keep your options open, right?) But never mind.....
We spent all evening listening to The Used and obsessing over them. Maybe that was just me?
Well anyway, yesterday I got news that my friend Dave is going to be alright after all, which is some relief.
He's stuck in a coma in a French hospital, although I have absolutely no idea which one, after taking (here's what the Doctor said) "Too much ". Well that's just f*cking great, isn't it? How does one take "Too much"? Any amount at all is too much, especially if you clearly specify to your nearest, dearest friends "I'm off the now, no more stupidness from me!"
Stupid guy. I don't know whether to feel sadness, anger, guilt or just pity him.
Hmm, today was surprisingly warm. It was one of those bizarre days I have where I can't decide if it's been good or bad. Work *dragged* and they let me go early because the heat was getting to me and I was ready to snap.
Anyway the band are here now, we're going to cover Rage Aginst the machines "Killin' in the name" for our first gig.
I remember our most difficult audience. We played songs we thought (judging from their t-shirts, naturally) they would like, but all night they were a pretty sh*t crowd to play to. Then I whispered to one of the guitarists "F*ck this crowd tonight" and he said "Let's play Killin' in the name!"
It was the first time we'd played it to any audience larger than the band and maybe 5 observers, so we didn't know if it would work. Luckily, the crowd loosened up. Hearing a crowd of people I had just branded "Difficult idiots" shouting along to "F*ck you I won't do what you tell me!!" created a good atmosphere, so we ended after that, on a natural high and loving the crowd.
So let's hope that feeling comes back around this time around, although we won't be playing the same underground clubs. Or at least I don't think we will.
Our first gig is the only one we have a set song-list for, which is pretty much how we usually do things, just take it from the first song (which this time will be a bizarre Depeche Mode cover song we mixed with one of our own songs) and judging by the audiences shirts, we go along with whatever songs we have up our sleeves.
For example, if the crowd are all wearing Slipknot, Mastodon or C.O.F shirts, they get heavy metal and maybe some electro-pop thrown in for measure.
If they are wearing The Clash, Blondie or The stranglers, they get something fitting..... it works all ways.
So I have no idea where this year will lead us.....
Oh well!Like usual, we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.
Ahh, boredom reigns, and I found this quiz on someones emoblog, so....
