Woah! 2011!

Woah! Cool. I'm totally okay with this.

Umm... Woah

So last night I told Megan that she needs to have Goals instead of Resolutions for 2011 since no one ever keeps resolutions for very long.

This made me dig up my old Goals list for the year of 2010 and I realized that So far (still have a month to go) I've kept almost every single one.

Awesome.
Here goes -
Make more music. - Check.

School. - Kinda? I finally got enrolled and kicked and screamed at the counseling desk for 9 months soo.. Check.

Try and get back into radio. - Today being my frist day back at High Desert Broadcasting... Check.

Play more videogames. - DOUBLE CHECK. <3

Become a better bass player. - Not so much check...

Quit smoking... or at least cut back. - Half a check.

Spend money more wisely. - Hah... no check.

Get a new car. - CHECK.

Watch my drinking. I don't want to end up in jail in 2010. Unless it was totally worth it. - No Jail!... Yet!

Cut back on the tattoos. My last one got terribly infected. No more tattoos. At least not on my leg... or with color. - Well, I didn't cut back, but they're all on my arm and black. Check!

Take better care of Gordon. - Super check!

Learn to be alone. - Umm... fail. I'm just hardwired to be social I think.

Make at least one out of state trip. - I made like 3 or 4. Awesome. Checkity Check.



So next year, I'm going to go ahead and make the dreaded Loose Weight goal. I've been doing really really well so far. Maybe if I make it a goal it'll happen HARDER. Hah!

Disneyland... Help!!

Okay so my Mom is taking me, Megan and the neighbor girl Crystal to Disneyland on Saturday for my birthday.

Here is the suuuper depressing part.

Crystal is 13 years old... Was adopted by a woman in Compton who ended up getting really bad diabetes, loosing her legs and a few months later, loosing her life. Her sister (who is in her 40's) lives next door to my mom and took her in. Crystal's sister (who is now her caretaker) has also been diagnosed with diabetes and is going through kidney dialysis. She might not live past a handfull of years. If she dies, Crystal literally has nowhere else to turn besides her sisters husband who doesn't get along with her. He's a good guy though and we really hope he will continue taking care of her.

Crystal has never been to Disneyland. I am way more excited about taking her than actually going! It's going to  be so much fun.

Here is my skivvy though - Not sure if she'll have another chance to go in a long long long time so I really want to hit as much as we can with her... on a fucking Saturday.

I'm thinking a plan of action like this -
Since it's saturday, we're going to have to hit the kiddy rides first to get them out of the way. We could shoot straight through the park, hit the kiddie rides (peter pan, pinochio, etc. ) and then shoot up to...
Small world? Get that crap outta the way! 
Continue to.. toon town from there. Get that whole thing done with! 
From there we could arch across the right side down to materhorn and tomorrow land.
After crying silently that Star Tours isn't open yet, shoot across to the west end of the park to adventure, frontier, new orleans, etc. and try to finish there.

Would this work on a saturday? I just want to avoid the strollers as much as possible or just get them out of the way first.

Indiana Jones - 1995 - 2010

If you've ever been to my house, you've seen him. The gigantic fucking monster of a Japanese Akita that I named when i was in the 5th grade. I had that dog for a long time.

Last night he ended up getting bloat. Pretty lethal in old, large dogs. I gave him some doggy-anti-inflammatories before i went to bed and we had a moment. 

I knew he wasn't going to last through the night. I made him as comfortable as i could. I told him he was the best fucking dog anyone could ever ask for and that I loved him to death. He just looked at me with sad, once-brown and now pale blue eyes that seemed to scream "don't leave me." I went to bed after about an hour with him breathing like a marathon runner on the floor. there are no 24 hour vet services out here, and I didn't have any money anyways.

His stomach felt like a drum and was bulging pretty badly. I finally went to bed.

I was woken up by my dad at 10:30 in the morning and by 11am he was on a doctors table and being injected with the same pale blue colored liquid that matched his eyes, and he was crying. This was probably the hardest thing I had to do. My dad was a fucking wreck. I had to be the one to talk to the doctor and fight back the tears so he could understand what I was saying. I took off his chain, and squeezed it in my pocket as I felt him take his last breath. I'm going to miss my friend.

Travel..

I wants to.

This is terrible timing on the part of my subconscious to decide I want to up and go somewhere... I start school tomorrow.

Speaking of school - today (at some point) I get to go online and make a list of all my classes and the locations of all of them.

Then, come tomorrow morning, I get to attempt to crash ALL of them .

Part of me is really excited about crashing some classes and finally going back to school.... the other part of me is enjoying making music all day WAY too much.

and now this third part of me is screaming TRAVEL! HOP IN YOUR NEW CAR AND GOOOO!!!!



ughhh... Anyone wanna.. go somewhere?!

You're SO lucky I'm a sound engineer...

So I kinda landed a job out here in Lancaster... the down side is its an unpaid spot.. not even an internship, it's volunteer work.

This guy opened a new venue out here in Lancaster called The Fantasy Hall. He has bands roll in about 4 days out of the week. My friends and I jammed there about a week after they opened, and after talking with the owner, he said he needs some help running the place... working the door, security, sound, etc. etc.

So last night 6 bands were supposed to play, only 3 showed up so I was asked to come do an acoustic set. I had nothing better to do so I rolled on over there. As i get there (about 7pm) the owner says "TIM! Our sound guys are fighting and both of them wont come in.. can you do sound tonight!??" 

Soooo... There is another show tonight. And the sound guys are still arguing over something... not sure what. But I get to run sound again tonight. 
It's a hip-hop show.

Live bands, rock and roll, etc... I can do... but I've never run a sound board for a hip-hop group before... this should be... interesting.

The plus side of all of this? It makes me feel like i have a job. sweet.

It's snowing but life's weather is clearing up...

Happy Tuesday everyone :) 
Life is clearing up this week.
Today -
I went to the DMV and got my new car registered... then I took the KIA over to First City Credit Union and did a voluntary repossession. Basically just handed them the keys and said "I QUIT!" 

So when they come to me in a month or so and say "Hey, you owe us  $4,000 since the KIA isn't worth anything.." then I'll head over to the court house and file for bankruptcy soo...
Goodbye KIA... Hello Ford Tarus... RIP My Credit! hahahaha...

School starts in a few weeks... lets see if I get any classes.

trying out 4 drummers, 2 guitarists and a bassist this week... super exciting! I get one more check from the construction job and then it's time for unemployment to start rollin' in. $200 a week isn't too bad. it'll pay for my cell phone bill and my insurance (which went down to $40 a month yesterday!) 

Things are definitely looking up... now if this girl would just call me to hang out today then I'd be on cloud 9! 

Nap time, I've deserved it :)

xmas letter to santa

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In January lexxwonderland and I robbed a bank (-50 points). In February I bought porn for the_wise_wyn (10 points). In March I gave queen_of_words a kidney (1000 points). In April I set kiss_sa_ten's puppy on fire (-66 points). Last Tuesday I donated bone marrow to forktronica in a life-saving procedure (300 points).

Overall, I've been nice (1194 points). For Christmas I deserve an XBox 360!

Sincerely,
eggnogthecat
