Too Funny...

I haven't posted anything in a long while, but I'm avoiding writing an article and find this to be hilarious -

I did an interview yesterday with this singer. I did a really bad job and now I'm spazzing b/c there's so much I needed to ask and didn't, so now the article sucks.

So in any case, the singer had to call me on his phone not connected through other number - it happens.

Later that night, I'm transcribing the damn interview and my phone beeps - text message. It's from a number I don't know asking who I am. I'm like 'huh?' Then two and two together - it's from the singer's phone.

At the time, I'm dying thinking this is funny and kinda cool. I explain who I am, he's like sorry we've been drinking, I say to go have fun.

That's about it. If it had been a singer I was like in love with, I would have be bummed that was it.

So anyways, I'm doing more research for this damn article and hear him talking about his girl that is on tour with them. I don't know how these girls do it, I couldn't put up with the tour schedule - plus, don't you have a job?

Well in any case. Thinking about this more - you SO know that it was his girl who texted my number last night.

How much does it suck to be a band dude's girlfriend? I couldn't deal with all the people you meet day to day. Anyone out there have any stories to share on this topic?

Send me to Chicago!

Dude, I would very much like to go to this Riot Fest over in Chicago in October. It would be fun. But I think I'm going to Iceland (yes, Iceland) then. darn.

Taking Back Sunday, Anberlin & Envy on the Coast - show review

OK! I saw this show back June 20th. I had hoped these images would go on Shut Up Magazine, but technology hates me and I couldn't upload them.

So I'm putting them here! yay!

Taking Back Sunday & Anberlin live shots from Electric Factory in Philadelphia, PA, June 20th.

Show was AMAZING!!!
Read the full recap on

Missed most of Envy On The Coast, but the singers came out and sang on the last two TBS songs. EOTC = Really good stuff

Anberlin surprised me. They are really great. First time seeing them, definately not the last.

TBS is my favorite, never have a bad time with them. Plus I got mad close to Matt Rubano. I heart him! I've only met Adam & Fred (well, when he was in it) before, so yay Matt!

I'm not a photographer. But not too bad in my opinion.

Oh No! Senses Fail!

So, I just heard a couple days ago that Heath from Senses Fail will be leaving the band after Warped Tour. Kinda bummed.

Everything sounds all kosher and he just wants to move on in life and such.

I'm just bummed b/c as a fan (obviously I never shut up about them), it felt this last record they finally came around and have the basis for something really amazing musically-wise.

Plus, I didn't know if Jason Black - their bassist on tour & from Hot Water Music - was going to maybe record with them. I was excited for this and I think Heath was damn good, so...that plus the lyrics I love and the way Heath and other guitarist Garrett worked together...

So now I wonder who's going to come in or is bad news going to come? Probably not, but we'll see after Warped what's going to go on with them.
