Thinking about a new tattoo
I haven't gotten a tattoo in almost 6 years!! Since I'm turning 25 this year, I think I'm going to get another one. I would like to get a half sleeve, but then I would always have to wear long sleeve shirts at work. So now I'm thinking about getting something on my back that would come to the bottom of my neck and maybe extend a bit to my the top of my arm. Not sure yet, but I really want something done!

Jimm and I are leaving tonight for Florida and should arrive in Daytona Beach around 2 or 3 tomorrow afternoon. I'm not sure when we're coming home (before the next Monday obviously) but we'll be down there all next week. We're not doing much of anything but laying around the beach and being bums. We're staying with Katy and Randy for most of the week so we don't have to worry about a hotel, and Chris and Allison are coming over on Sunday. Wednesday, we're going to Sea World and we have reservations for a beach front hotel room on Thursday. I can't wait to get down there, but the 14 hour drive will suck. Oh, and I barely have any money either. I'm sure I'll manage though, we're not going to Disney this year. Woo!

I can only dream.
Since the break up of The Gathering, I told myself if there was an open audition for vocalists that I would try.

Well, I go on the forum yesterday and low and behold...they are having open auditions. Tonight I'm going to figure out what I want to do..if I want to record a song by The Gathering or someone else. I'll probably play acoustic guitar along with it. Nate is going to come over and help me record it, so that should be fun.

I've really been wanting to play in a band again so I've been wanting to record some vocals anyway for a demo. I doubt I'll get The Gathering gig, but at least I could say I tried!

Bummed out!
I can't believe Anneke is leaving The Gathering! I haven't been this bummed about a band split since Fear Factory broke up back in '02. She is such an amazing singer and the best live singer I have ever heard. Oh well.

I'm glad that both parties are continuing on and I look forward to hearing what each of them do in the future.


The Gathering 5.19.2007
Jimm and I went to watch The Gathering in Grand Rapids on Saturday. It was a part of the "Hottest Chicks in Metal" tour.

Stolen Babies were pretty good, Jimm and I got pretty lit during their set. We walked around during In This Moment and got really good spots for The Gathering. They were amazing! Anneke has the best live voice I have ever heard. She even said she was sick, but you couldn't tell at all. Setlist:

Shortest Day
Probably Built in the Fifties
A Noise Severe

The people in front of us were stupid. Lacuna Coil brought out the jerks! Oh well, sorry The Gathering don't played dumbed down riffs.

We walked around a bit during Lacuna Coil and watched a couple songs. After that, we went outside to try and meet The Gathering. All of them (except Anneke who was asleep) were just sitting outside. I got all my CDs signed and got pictures with them. Marjolein and Rene were awesome! Marjolein was very sweet and gave me and Jimm some beers. Rene and Jimm bonded over guitars and prog rock. Very very nice people! I was very happy when we left because I couldn't believe how nice everyone was.

Great show, I was extremely drunk, but that's ok! Hope they come around again!

Well, we're almost completely settled in to the house right now. I'm trying to figure out a good color for my yoga/exercise room. Jimm painted his little "man room" burgundy. I like the color, but I want something else...don't want it to be too matchey - matchey. Any suggestions would be great! I was thinking about maybe a green color..dark green.

It's been a little weird this week, but I'm getting used to it! It's really nice to have a garage and to also have my own washer and dryer! The kitties took a little while getting used to it, but once they figured out how to jump on the ledge between the kitchen and living room, they seemed pretty happy. Jimm, Dave S, Sarah and I (hopefully colby) are going to be having a little Tiki Torch party with hamburgers and whatnot. Should be pretty fun!

The Gathering is a week from Saturday!!!! I'm realy excited. The drive to Grand Rapids will be a douche, but I think it will be worth it.

Oh, Brandon if you read this, are you still living with your parents? That's the neighborhood we live in! :-)

I've Got A Feeling
With The Wrong People
And I Can't Control My Thoughts

I Wish That I Could Sleep
And Just Get This Over With
...This Is Only High School Bullshit...

I Just Want To Feel

I Was Warned
Absolutley Numb
No Good Around People
Everyone Knows And Watches Me

How Did I Get Here Tonight?
What Am I Doing Here?
How Did I Reach This State?
How Did I Lose My Sight?

I'm Lost ... I'm Freaking
And Everybody Knows ... Everyone's Watching

...So Here's All My Hopes And Aspirations
Nothing But Puke
God, I'm So Lonely...

I Just Want To Feel
