| So I am excited... 2004-11-27 20:37:13 ET
I have found 4 pedals online that I am in dire need of for my guitar and hopefully in the next 4 days will be getting all of them for around $200 plus shipping and handling. This is awesome... many of them are pretty rare so I am just hoping that no one finds them until I have already bought them. |
I have a Diamond Series Schecter Blackjack, a Line6 Spider II 150w Amp Head, and a Line6 4x12 Cab with the 4 pedal pre-set so when I get this stuff I will be hardcore in business.
'nuff said... I'm excited.

I FUCKING LIKE FUCKING KELLY CLARKSON'S FUCKING NEW SONG!!!|
I feel like a criminal... like I should be dragged out and shot for this disgrace of a conclusion. WHY in my right mind would I ever like this pop shit from a girl like Kelly Clarkson?!? I mean am I right or what... I can't stand this insanity but I really like the guitar effects the writers used and the words... and then Kelly's voice... ACH!!!
This makes me want to be a studio musician so I could listen to this power pop stuff like this and say things like "Yup... I played guitar on that shit and got paid like $20,000 plus 5% of the total profit."
Not a bad deal... but probably not one that studio musicians get... but I would cuz I'm a badass. A badass that likes... um... Kelly Clarkson...
So yeah... if you are bored and want to laugh at me CLICK HERE.
If I get angry posts about me being a sell-out I don't care... "it's my body i'll do what i want" so sayeth Cartman and so I will say too. Even if I may never recover from this shit.
"Screw you guys I'm goin home."
| I love Rage Against the Machine... 2004-11-15 21:38:04 ET
I have been listening to every Rage song I own for the last month now and I just feel so empowered for some reason. It's strange... but it seems like this band is just calling out to me. I mean I have loved them since the beginning and when I was a Freshman in Highschool I traded my favorite Everclear CD for Evil Empire on a bus ride to a track meet.|
I have also been writing a lot of songs that somewhat resemble an early Rage-like style. I like it and yet I don't... before it was Incubus... now it's Rage... there's a strange sort of terror in thinking what it will be next... haha... here's a small part of a piece I wrote...
"Bring me back to the times when we knew when to negotiate and when to attack... when I believed in everything... now I'm disillusioned with my ideals a black background to morality's corruptions plaguing me... I'm asleep at the controls and the sign says the nightmares will never end... if I break it and bend it at the corners maybe this will be easier to swallow than to begin again... can I adopt a nature of optimism to allow another chance or is this already at a loss... spitting these words for the fallen, the hollow, the star-crossed"
| Hallo... 2004-11-07 22:18:10 ET
Okay... so again... I'm here to post a poem. I've been writing alot and when I write a lot that means that I am finding that I cannot express my feelings any other way. Some people love to write... they write of beautiful moments in life... of falling in love... but when I write it's because I have come across an emotion or a feeling that I can't understand so I have to "see" it physically in order to deal with it in a healthy manner. Hahaha... and so yeah... this is a stressful time for me... enjoy...|
The Day After Tomorrow
I took notice of the times I left you jaded and alone…
under this façade of self-righteous behavior I knew the truth all along…
the blame all my own…
nothing can picture the regret better than the tears collecting in your eyes…
the quivering of your skin…
remembering the lipstick in the corners of your mouth like the lies in mine…
the crease between my lips where they marched a thousand times…
how long before I forgive myself…
how long before this pained nostalgia will die…
another minute lost baited by glory with nothing left to give to the flame…
driven and ridden to the end…
IN SEARCH OF A NAME…
less likely to find me in a place of forgiveness rather than a house of shame…
this self-destruction’s got me by the hand leading me on down this path to the embankment of sandbags reinforced to fight the storm…
and I stand alone upon the shore awaiting the welcoming sight of waves to carry me away…
toes in the surf and hair slicked by the wind…
with a vision of angels beckoning me to come in…
| Election Stuff Again... 2004-11-04 20:24:28 ET
Here is a little something I found...|
How The Election Was Stolen
by Roz Hill
I watched the election results all night and into this morning. There are some very important issues to share.
One is the surprise expressed by the pundits wherein they acknowledge that the massive voter drives were propelled by discontent. So how did the most hated occupant of the White House manage to exceed his 45% poll average to now claim he has a huge "popular" win.
We are told that 22% voted on "morality" and that Bush took 80% of that 22%, and that is how he won. However, that leaves 78% who were focused on Kerry issues. Why aren’t we told the percentages of the 78%???
The second surprise for the media was that the results didn’t match the exit polls AT ALL. The media has gracefully claimed they "just got it wrong." You remember we didn’t have exit pollsters in 2002. It saved any disagreement with THAT Republican "sweep." In fact, the pollsters have always been 100% accurate, with just 1 to 2% polling data, in legitimate elections. Bush took the Texas governorship from Ann Richards when she had a 70% approval rating. Is it magic?
I have SCREAMED since 2000 that if we don’t get rid of touch-screen "voting" computers, NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING else will matter.
So, here are the numbers (so far): 112,596,922 voters counted in the presidential race. Bush has been consistently polling at 45%, which SHOULD have given him 50,668,614 votes, instead of 58,073,612. This translates into 7,404,998 votes being siphoned off from Kerry votes. Now, how does that magic work???
EACH of the touch-screen "voting" computers which cost taxpayers $3600 each are nothing more than dedicated COUNTERS except that they are marketed by Republicans (who vowed to ensure Bush’s victory); and the American people have not been allowed to examine or certify the software in these units.
Here is how easy it is to "make magic"
-- we need COUNTERS - (B) = Bush; (K) = Kerry; (V) = Vote; (T) = Tally
1. If V = B, add 1 to B
2. If T = 8, add 1 to B; Clear T; Skip 3
3. If V = K, add 1 to K; Add 1 to T
This extremely simple bit of programming would shift 12% of the vote from Kerry to Bush, it would defy exit polls, and it would make it look like Bush had a huge popular win. It is time that the software in these SECRET Republican-owned computers be examined with a deliberate check for instructions that could modify the vote tally.
Al-Qaeda has previously regarded the American people as victims of a crooked election in 2000. Now they regard Americans as responsible for letting this man - regarded as the worst terrorist on the planet - continue his tyrannous regime. I doubt that the rest of the world will accept four more years of his lies and looting.
Much respect for this article... a little too much Conspiracy Theory but it made a good point...
Though a big thing to take in account here is the simple principle that even though Bush only had a 45% approval rating with the national population... the national population was not the voting public. The voting public was only 60% of registered voters and if we look at basic political science... Republicans are the most likely to vote in any election with registered Democrats usually opting to not vote on election day. The reason being that most Republicans are rich well-educated... blah blah blah... and Dems are the opposite... so really even if the exit polls were turned in favor of one candidate we have to understand that exit polls suck and really don't amount to jack shit.
Now if an investigation ensues I hope they find out that the Republicans were guilty of voter fraud... but how long do you think that will take? Do you think that it will happen in time to change the outcome of the next 4 years?
I am interested to see.
