Current Listening:
NOFX: “The Separation of Church and Skate”
When did punk rock become so tame?
These fucking bands all sound the same

Killing the Hare came over to practice; I joined them to jam out on “The Jungle Song” and an acoustic/electric version of “Blitzkrieg Bop.” Then I went up to Lake Como for Brooke’s “Bye Bye in Germany” thingie. She’s going to Germany for a month.. I wish I could leave the country. But I hate foreign people! (joke). They burned her homework. John Springer was up there; I hadn’t seen him since January during our coinciding Winter Breaks. He goes to MSU, not UM, but I forgive him for that.

This is from my “I was gonna write it in the Blog but blew it off” Archive:


The Science Complex is an ominous building. Huge, menacing, it resembles a miniature Death Star perched below Mount Jumbo. When you factor the dark windows (it was 9:00 PM when I visited it) and the strange whirring fans, it became something otherworldly, like some building from a third-rate Sci-Fi Horror movie (like Gremlins II). But I journeyed within despite the acute terror which had accumulated within me. I did, after all, have to get science credits or I would fail the course.

The interior of the building was much more inviting. There was a Coke machine and a couch in the lobby. What sort of maniacal genius would furnish his hellish anteroom so hospitably? It took a while, but I found the room in which the experiment was being conducted. It wasn’t much of an experiment: no electrodes, no test tubes, no monkeys in cages. Just a form and a questionnaire sheet. They weren’t even terrifying questions: “Have you ever believed you could fly?” No, I am not Superman. I finished the questionnaire, exited the building, and left the once terrifying Science Complex behind.

Whoops. My bad. Lee. Not Leo. Leo was their drummer; Lee is their singer.

Shawn, Vinny, Cayce (I don’t know how to spell that damn name; this is close enough) and I went to Horseshoes’ show in Polson this Friday. Chris’s band also played. It was awesome. Lee’s friend broke the stage. And Lee got stuck in the elevator before the show. Both these incidents made the manager/custodian dude very pissy. Yeah, Lee broke $4 of particle board! Uh-oh! Then we went to John’s house/store and hung out for a while. left at 3:00 in the morning.

I’ve been recording throughout my spring break. That is all.
