HAPPY FUCKING ST. PATRICK'S DAY, GUYS.

OMG

I am le screwed for tomorrow. It's 8:30 pm and I still have to write my English monologue, study for my English quiz, study for my Math quiz, study for my Physics exam, and finish my art project. OMFG!!!!!!!!!!

Fuck yeah!!

This day = AMAZING. And it's only 1:03 pm.

OKAY so here's what happened.

A few days ago, on the 19th, I heard something on the radio about Roger Waters coming to my city. For those of you who don't know, Roger Waters was the bass player for Pink Floyd from 1965-1983, about, till he left due to tensions within the band and himself (meaning they hated each other...they don't anymore though).

Right so the presale was from the 19th to the 23rd. I however could not buy tickets then because fucking stupid Ticketmaster has the presale for only American Express credit cards. WTF?

Then, this morning, I was sleeping in because I was really tired and my bed was nice and warm. My mom came home from her class at like 10:30 or something (she's taking this thing about oil and gas at the university), came upstairs, and said "When did the tickets go on sale?" Course I was like "Um what?" cuz I'd just gotten out of bed the minute she walked in, and I thought she'd be pissed off at me for sleeping in.

So she told me she thought that they were on sale today, so I turned on the comp, looked for tickets, and I got some. They were expensive, the most expensive ones, so I figured they were good seats. However when I tried to pay for them using my mom's MasterCard, it wasn't working. And I lost my place in line for the tickets.

I went back and did it again and guess what.

I GOT FLOOR FUCKING SEATS. HELLZ YEAH!!!!

Same price as the previous tickets too.

Damn right.

My parents said it's like a birthday present, as my birthday is on June 11. Course the concert is like on the 24th but still.

They also said that I could go with a friend if I could find one who wanted to go...and who could pay me $150 for the ticket. Yes that's how expensive they are. BUT. The Rolling Stones floor seats cost nearly $400 (and that's why I didn't go...wtf? My parents ended up getting cheaper tix for the Vancouver show, but the seats were kinda sucky). My seats are great. And the wonderful thing about floor seats is that its like first-come-first-serve. You get there early and you might be able to get up to the front. Then again it might be sitting down but still. The fact remains that I am going to see Roger Waters. Perform Dark Side Of The Moon as well as his solo stuff. In my city. At the Pengrowth Fucking Saddledome.

This is the closest thing to seeing Pink Floyd as I can get. Can I get a BOOYAH, plzkthnx?

Did everyone die or something? LJ is like dead today.

Gotta find a novel to bring to English class on Monday. Damn, I've read all my novels, wtf. And it usually takes me two - three days to read a book. Grr.

Also, we're doing these stupid stories in English. We're all in groups of 4, and each group writes 4 stories, each person starts one. But everyone else has to write the rest. So if I wrote the beginning of one, I'd pass it on and the next person would add rising action, etc etc. My story got ruined. So I'm gonna change it a little. We also have to read the best story out loud to the class. Ugh.

School is so dull already and I've been back for two days wtf. I want to learn interesting stuff, not linear equations and significant digits.

I uploaded a bunch of music onto my comp so I could listen to it easier. Yeti is really becoming one of my favourite bands. Song For The Dead and Up and Down are amazing songs. Seriously. I was impressed by Up and Down because it's much more of a rock song than their other stuff. John does a good job on the vocals for that one. The lyrics are good too.

I'm re-reading Bound Together too. The book makes me sad so I don't see why I'm re-reading it. Maybe it's cause the anecdotes in there make me laugh sometimes. But when I read about what Peter did to Gary and John, and how John couldn't write songs for the band and stuff like that, it upsets me. 

I'm currently studying for my exams today as well. Pain in the ass is what it is. I have my Social Studies exam tomorrow and my Chem exam on Friday. Then I get a week and a half off, then I start the new semester which I am not looking forward to. I have Physics, Math, English (well that's alright), CALM (Career and Life Management), and Art (that's good too because I like art and I'm pretty good at it). But according to my friends, Physics and Math are hard. A few of them told me I'd fail. Tch, fuck that. I'm a hell of a lot smarter than the majority of my friends, as I do tend to understand concepts better, remember things, and do well overall in my courses.

ALSO, my parents said that they're taking me to England and France a few months after I graduate for my grad present. My brothers and maybe my brother's girlfriend are coming. I've barely been out of the country let alone the continent, so it'll be really fun.


Peace out, I guess.

PS. Does anyone know how to put your last.fm charts into your LJ posts? I can't seem to do it...

Meme thing

Meme from bluesenough

10 Things I Like That Begin With The Letter 'D'

Drew - Drew from Babyshambles of course. He's handsome, Irish, funny, and he's wildly talented. You just can't not respect a man who plays in two bands, is a backing musician for a solo artist, plays his own acoustic sets, directs videos, helps put on the Love Music Hate Racism gigs, and went and played a gig at Trafalgar Square after Pete was arrested. His words at the end of his set (he played an acoustic version of Albion):

"Love music, hate racism, love music, hate the fucking police."

Just...ahh..fantastic.

Damian - Singer for OK Go, my new favourite band (I get a new one every week, ah what a flighty person I am). He might just be one of the best dressers I've seen...ever. His suits are, although rather unorthodox, are fantastic. He's tall and skinny so it works well. He also has nice hair AND blue eyes. Lovely singer, he's got a very sexy voice I must say. He can also dance, play guitar, and he writes very good songs.

Dogs - This one is pretty self-explanatory. Cute, playful, fuzzy, friendly. I love dogs with an entirely platonic passionate affection. I also love my dog, Lavender, because she's adorable and bizarre.

Domatophobia - The fear of being in a house. Whoever has this is really screwed over in the winter. Or if they live in the Bronx. But irrational fears like that make me laugh.

Dawn of the Dead - Good movie. I liked it from the start because it had a really good Johnny Cash song for the intro bit. 

Dapper - A word that I like to use on a regular basis.

Democracy - Equality, freedom, etc. Who could NOT love that?

Deoxyribonucleic acid aka DNA - I just like to say the word. Also it's interesting to study. Probably the only part of biology I enjoy.

Dignity - I have it, and it keeps me from doing stupid things like having a drunken party with 4 of my guy friends. Not so much because I don't like alcohol, but more...they had like 5 bottles of Smirnoff (gross vodka) and American beer (come on, it's practically water). Never gonna see the day when I start drinking that crap. Ever.

Denied - Second half of my favourite phrase from Wayne's World. And entirely justified as the song in question is probably the most overplayed song ever. As a guitar player myself, I hate the stupid thing. For those of you who don't know, the song is Stairway to Heaven.

Days and videos.

Right, so these are what my past few days were like

Friday
I had the day off and I watched some really terrible films on TV. Can't remember what they were called. One was about a Polish boy who was shipwrecked and saved by these two old women, the other was a sci-fi film set in the future (obvsly) and people could travel back in time and kill dinosaurs right before they die, so that way they're not altering history, blah blah blah. They were bad. The first one had a shitty ending and the other one had bad graphics, bad script, bad storyline, and no scientific basis at ALL. Just some random crap thrown together.

Saturday
Rememberance Day wasn't all too exciting. There was a tribute on the radio, played some nice songs, etc. etc. Did some homework, blah de blah blah.

Sunday
Went shopping with my aunt and I bought:
Soft brown scarf
Furry hat similar to Johnny Borrell's fuzzy hat thing with the ear flaps
Christmas gifts for the folks
Cappuccino
Lemon Danish
Socks

I also recieved new pyjamas from my mom and a large block of fudge from my brother. He went on this wine-tasting tour thing around the Okanogan (lake in British Columbia and there are loads of wineries there). Anyways, seeing as how I am underage and he can't bring me back any wine, he brought me back fudge. I love my brothers, they're always so thoughtful when giving me things. I wasn't even expecting anything as I knew there isn't much to buy in BC, just the same stuff here, only more expensive (HAHAHA to those who have PST). I also stayed up till 12:00 am doing my science homework.

Monday aka Today
So today was totes wtf. The chemistry homework, I figured out, should have been easier to do. Unfortunately, being the nerd/dork/keener that I am, I did these huge ass write-ups, when I didn't have to. I also didn't have to hand in the one part of the homework that caused me alot of trouble. It was retarded.

Alright, so I've been meaning to do this for awhile but I decided to post the definitive (okay not so much) list of best videos on YouTube. In no particular order:

Anthony interview at SkyNews
Time Warp from Rocky Horror Picture Show
Nobody Move, Nobody Gets Hurt - We Are Scientists
The Great Escape - We Are Scientists
It's A Hit - We Are Scientists
Working For The Industry - Yeti
Last Time You Go - Yeti
Didz and Anthony T in the Park interview
Hurt - Johnny Cash
Fight scene from Anchorman
Somewhere Else - Razorlight (note, Johnny Borrell's walk in this is so amazingly rubbish, I love him for it)
Janie Jones - Babyshambles and Friends (note: DREW!!!)
DDR type dance routine...thing (note: this guy is awesome)
Camp Jitterbug Charleston Finals 1/2
Camp Jitterbug Charleston Finals 2/2
Pull Shapes - The Pipettes
Benicassim Festival Interview (note: DREW!!!!)
GloNo interview with DPT

Watch them and enjoy.

Question: If you're "British" friend (British meaning he lived there when he was a little kid) and you other, Canadian, friend tell you that the word "sod" and any adjectives or adverbs or whatever used with "sod" always and only mean sodomy, to sodomize, etc. when you know for a FACT that it is slang to be used to emphasize something or whatever, say someone is wretched or unfortunate, a form of endearment, etc. Example:

"Sod this"

"Sodding bastards"

"Silly sod"

"Poor sod"

"Sod off"

Excuse me, but does sodomy have any place in the above? No. Okay, fine, the fucking word originated from sodomy, but fucking means to have sex and bloody means to be...bloody. Does that mean when you say "fuck" that you're saying "sex" or when you say "bloody hell" you are literally referring to blood running through the realm of hell? No. 

So I suppose this confirms that my friends are assholes. This was a trigger to set it off. Years off having my music ridiculed and my clothing and how I look shot down. It has all come to this point. I'd certainly be willing to stay friends with them if they weren't so elitist and mean in the future.

Looking back over this, I suppose the old cliché fits. With friends like these, who really needs enemies? At least I wouldn't care if someone whom I shared a mutual hatred with hated my music. It's different with people whom you've shared secrets and dreams with, laughter and tears and god knows what else.

Write a journal entry for this meme with six random facts about yourself. Then pick six people off your friends list and tag them - no tag backs. These rules should be included in your entry.

1. I tend to pace about my room for no apparent reason. I am a very restless person.

2. I have an accessory fetish. Meaning, I love to buy hats, scarves, shoes, jackets (I call those accessories, thanks) etc. more than the actual clothing itself.

3. I dyed my hair permanently black last night because non-permanent dye washes out of my hair.

4. In relation to the last point, I went as an emo for Halloween at school.

5. I have a bizarre obsession with finding tattoos and piercings on band members that I..fancy, shall we say.

6. I LOVE hair and it's the first thing I notice about people. Especially guys.

I'm not gonna tag anyone b/chalf_cockedgirland bluesenough are the only people on my f-list who update, and they've already done this meme. Whatev.

Hair

I have recently discovered that John has cut off that lovely poofy hair he's been sporting the past little while. Now, his new hair doesn't look BAD, but it resembles what his hair was like in the REALLY early days of the Libertines. Here are some pictures I've nabbed off their Myspace recently:

http://www.bearwitnesspictures.com/photo_551475.html
http://www.bearwitnesspictures.com/photo_551536.html

I do however like his outfit. AND holy crap is he skinny. Harmony does look rather nice though. Oh yeah and that one off the photobucket account isn't mine, it belongs to someone else. 

I swear, if Anthony decided to cut off his hair I'd bloody get a ticket to England and talk some sense into these boys. DO THEY NOT KNOW HOW MUCH WE VALUE THEIR HAIR? GOSH!

Okay, so where do I begin? Ah yes...music.

I'm going to list off a number of bands that I have gotten into THIS YEAR. And JUST this year, mind you. Tis a lengthy list.

Franz Ferdinand
The Libertines
Dirty Pretty Things
Babyshambles
Yeti
Razorlight
The Hives
The Pipettes
The Phoenix Drive
The Lucky Spades
Johnny Cash
Arcade Fire
The Cribs
Arctic Monkeys
Buck 65
Blur
The Strokes
Simon and Garfunkel
Golden Earring
Dropkick Murphies

And that's about it. Long list, no? And that only added onto the ALREADY huge-ass list of bands I listen to. And I have to say that my top songs as of now are:

Hurt - Johnny Cash
In The Morning - Razorlight
Golden Touch - Razorlight
Somewhere Else - Razorlight
America - Razorlight
Pull Shapes - The Pipettes
Black Velvet Band - Dropkick Murphies
Wild Horses - The Rolling Stones
Hazy Shade of Winter - S&G
THE BONNY BANKS O' LOCH LOMOND - WHOMEVER CAN PULL OFF A GOOD VERSION. YEEEAAAHHH.

Okay, so school may just possibly be the biggest bitch ever. Even to the point where I can't go to my guitar lessons sometimes because of the amount of homework. What the hell? I have a test on Nationalism on Monday, my French Revolution/Napoleon project due Tuesday, a Chemistry test next week as well sometime, German presentation, and a French project thing. S'lame. It's like they think we have nothing better to do that do homework. Yeah, okay, well maybe some people are like that but others, like myself, have commitments. And I can't make those commitments when I'm doing 80 questions on molar mass. Or writing sentences on what Katja and Heinz are doing after school. And school really isn't made any better with my crazy teachers. They're not even GOOD crazy. They're just crazy. Well, my Chem teacher is crazy but he's a good bloke, so whatever.

My friend situation as been an issue. It's not directly my issue, as I am still on really good terms with my friends from previous years and I've made some new ones as well. It is, however, the fact that my friends do not like each other. I got my friends whom I sit with at lunch, the friends that I make stupid jokes with and we have inane stupidass conversations about nothing. My other friends, the ones I sit with on the bus or walk home with, or hang out with outside of school, I have stimulating, intelligent conversations or conversations about stuff that means alot to us, stuff we've experienced in the past and really only has significance to us. I feel torn between them, but I love them all. So what can I do? I can't possibly ditch one group for the other. But my...intelligent-conversation friends hate my stupid-conversation friends. They never used to, so I don't know what happened or who changed or whatever. All I know is that I'm in the middle and I don't know what to do.

Now, last but not least. Myspace. "On the eighth day, God created Myspace, and he saw that it was good." I swear, I am bloody obsessed with it. Things I have learned from browsing Myspace:

1. Anthony is very much into politics

2. Harmony has too much sex

3. Yeti has really good music videos

4. Drew has an imitator

5. Drew also has an interesting nickname

6. Adam likes to impersonate other people

7. People leave 'interesting' comments on Yeti's page

8. Harmony is good at writing poetry.

9. Harmony also has the legs of an 80 year old prostitute

10. Anthony is unsure of his sexuality

11. Drew has Yeti and DPT on his friends list

12. Graham knows leet speak

13. Andrew and Harmony call each other interesting names

14. Harmony does extremely odd things when drunk

15. Drew is very pretty

16. Drew has a younger brother

17. Drew had another younger brother who died this year. (Jesus, it's hard to believe alot of the stuff he's gone through. I think being in Babyshambles is probably enough to wear you out as it is, let alone having a close one die. I mean, he plays in like 2 bands, plays bass for an Irish folk singer, and plays his own acoustic shows while doing other, behind-the-scenes type things.)

18. Anthony has good taste in music

19. Drew has a model/actress girlfriend...I think. There's a picture of her sitting on his lap and they're both on the very top of their friends list thing. She is also very pretty. 

20. Myspace gives an inside view to rockstars lives. Whether this is a blessing, curse, or both, I shall never know.

Sorry for spamming your f-list. But its my bloody journal entry and I don't think I need to put it under the cut in MY journal. Cheers.

xxxx

BTW. I'm watching performances from Live 8. Spine-tingling, s'what it is.

Oh god

Good god I'm actually starting to like Razorlight. Johnny Borrell may be a good antagonist in slash fiction and it's fun to take the piss when you're talking about him, but I gotta admit, he's kinda cute and Razorlight really isn't all that bad.

But then again, how could I dislike someone so much who is good friends with Jawn?

Oh and I just took a look at Harmony's myspace. Okay, all the posts I've read that he's posted are hilarious. As well as the comments he's left on some people's pages.
