"Here lies the body of Mary Lee
She died at age a hundred and three
For fifteen years she kept her virginity
Not a bad record for this vicinity"

Went out to Birmingham last night to see Signal Sirens, Sunshine Cadavers, Daniel Zott, and Stereophage at Roeper. It was a good show, and I liked Signal Sirens and DZ a lot, I've heard the Cadavers and Stereophage before, but they were great too. Sadly, I've also got a sore throat, and am feeling a bit under the weather. I've got start working on my final paper for Brakke's class sometime before Thursday too. Thursday is World/Inferno at the Crofoot in the Pike Room. Then up to CMU on Friday!

My basement flooded yesterday, it was at least 8 inches of water. Sucks, and we had to turn off the water, so I'm waterless in waterford. =[

Worked out yesterday, ran for about a miles, followed with 100 leg presses, then some butterflys and finally about 2.5 miles on an exercise bike. Felt good, I think I'll start working out a couple of times a week. For one, it's good for me, secondly I need to get my stamina back up for the upcoming frisbee season, and some of my other friends are trying to start up a Parkour group-type thing, and I'm considering joining them. Today I just lazed about, worked on cleaning my room a little. Tomorrow I'm going to go hang out with Shlee for awhile.

I've been feeling kind of...stuck for the past few days. I don't really have anything to do, anywhere to go most of the time. I don't have a job yet, though I did just apply at MJR. I feel like I'm not going to learn anything new in the next few months in school. It's like I'm just going through the motions. But even then, I feel like there's nothing to distract me from that. My friends are gone and I'm feeling kind of lonely, and adrift in a sea of nothing. Out of my closest friends, half are miles and miles away, and they other half are nose deep in cocaine [not real cocaine, not yet anyway, I just like the phrase]. I drove around town last night for awhile. I couldn't really think of anywhere to go, nobody to see. I ended up buying a lotto ticket and some mnm's. Basically I'm just feeling really disconnected from everything. Current Mood: apathetic

It's nice to reconnect with people every once in awhile.
I suggest you go out there and try it. IM, call or walk up and talk to someone you haven't talked to in a long time.

A merry Christmas, to all of my friends who can read this.

So, life's been interesting I guess.
I got my new clarinet and that's awesome, it's new used, 27 years old but it's a professional model and it plays well. I have a symphony orchestra concert tomorrow, we're playing In The Hall of the Mountain King, and What's up at the Symphony. I like both pieces. Brakke's class has been going well, I've got a solid B in there. I think I have an impromptu coming up shortly though. I feel like most of my classmates in there are dumb though. Ms. O. got demoted, and Mr. Phillip is head director of bands now.
My band played Senior show and we rocked. There were some technical issues though, the first night the mic on the piano [Nick used the grand] didn't work and the second night David's guitar wasn't on, dunno how the sound people fucked that one up. On the second night I invited Joe Dugan to come play and he agreed and I got to play with Joe and that made the song sound even better. Zach is officially out of the band now. He quit/got kicked out, for...creative differences.
I'm going up to CMU next weekend, gonna spend time with Miranda and visit Shlee and probably Jenn and the rest of my CMU friends.
As for drama, 'cause you guys know how involved I was in that program. I don't know...I'm feeling really disenchanted and disconnected with the Drama Club. I feel like they don't care that I'm even around still, only a few people even respect the fact that I'm the only person who can claim 4 years of working [including this one] out of the whole drama club at the moment. The Juniors can't, they all missed at least one play, if not 2 or 3. No one really respects my experience and I have to take crap from a lot of people who shouldn't be giving me crap at all. I'm going to audition for the winter play, but after that I think I'll just take on a really small part in the Musical, and I better damn well get my fucking Most Valuable Thespian award at the end of the year. It's supposed to go to the graduating senior who has done the most for the drama club. I deserve that fucking award.
On a happier note, I have been slowly adding new events to the party archive, and you guys should check it out. And, question: Are we having a thanksgiving party this year?

Tonight was Senior Run-through for Marching Band, and my last full rehearsal for marching, ever. Truth is, when I first joined Marching Band, I loved it. I used to work hard at it, but this year I hate it. I hate how it's run, I hate the decline in the band that's happened just since I've been around. Cuban Fire was reportedly the last good show, and I believe it. I like Danny Elfman, don't get me wrong, but the Drill doesn't even go with the music! The leadership has gone downhill too, as impossible as it seems, Ms. O. got worse over time. Thankfully, she's been demoted back down to Assistant. Maybe a few years from now the band will be good again. As it is now, Nick and I are probably the best marchers on the field, we get no recognition or respect anyway. We had the senior run through. It was laughable, I was cracking up the whole time. But in a way it was also quite sad, to see the state of the band...they can barely keep time when we're down there with them! It was terrible without them. I was being a bit of an ass when I started dutting from the press box when Zach was changing the tempo on the Doctor, half of the remainder of the band started to move.
The comradery that used to be present among the former senior classes is gone. The seniors from '08, '07, and '06 were at least nominally friends. The fact is that most of us can't stand each other. There are 14 senior members, 12 who marched all four fall seasons. Counting the people who joined late and quit, there were 20 of us all together. Like I said, we can't stand each other. The other senior ceremonies at camp, the seniors cried, we laughed and thought "god, I can't wait to get away from these people. It's odd I suppose, I do regret joining this year, it's nothing like it used to be. At the same time, I'm not sure if it was just misplaced loyalty, or if I was really, truly hoping it wouldn't suck this year. If it's the latter, I should have known better. I feel no remorse over the last full practice, I don't feel bad about missing all the extra time I miss. I still love music, I just hate the marching band. The tattered shreds of respect that were left when I joined are now dead and gone. Traditions are broken, and everything else that was good about it too.
