I’m not out to please everybody - I’ve actually been out to try not to displease anybody, and that’s tiring work. It’s like Prozac for creativity - cutting off the highs and lows and the risks and the rewards so that nobody walks away from a show or listens to an album with a passionate enough…
I know some girls would love to do all kinds of crazy shit to John Mayer, I honestly would love to just sit with him, have some coffee and talk for an hour about music and life.
When I first heard of Matthew McGinn, he went by “Courage Call”. The instant I heard, “Change Your Mind” I heard his genuine talent and his adorable vocals. The song was a little creepy, (“I’m just going where ever you are”), but apparently it’s supposed to be funny (I see the humor, but I’m not sure creepy people would haha). While Courage Call’s songs are catchy and fun, Matthew McGinn has done a little soul searching and maturing to bring us his self-titled project. Matthew is the boy next door; charismatic, charming and sweet. He kind of reminds me of the talented Jonas Brother (Nick, but I bet you knew before I said it). Here’s a taste of both but make sure to go to his myspace, as I LOVE his song “Maybe This Will Be My Year.”
I have been writing and creating websites and blogs since I was 13 and I really want to make something special and really work it up to something legit. I’m very stoked to be getting activity and people interested.
I’ve been reading this book called CrushIt! which has gotten me very motivated and given me plenty of ideas for my blog.
Here’s the thing though, he says to stay unique to yourself and your passion which I’m doing but I don’t know if my passion is too broad. Sounds kind of silly but I feel like it won’t make sense to people. I sincerely love all kinds of music; pop, rock, hip-hop, punk, r&b, ska, country, jazz, etc. However, usually my main focus is pop rock and pop punk.
Hmmm…Will people care to read my random babbling of all the music I listen to?
Nothing feels like home; you’re a thousand miles away, and the hardest part of living is taking breaths to stay.
I totally remember the day my cousin Kathy made me listen to Mayday Parade. :3 We were on our way to a Chain Reaction (those are awesome, ngl) and there was horrible traffic. She popped in the CD and was all “Do you know who Mayday Parade is?” I was like “LOL NO.” It was awesome. I listened to “If You Wanted A Song Written About You, All You Had To Do Was Ask” and I was an instant fan. She’s the reason I listen to so many new bands. I love her so much.
AWWWWWWW <3 I remember that day too!! Good times. I love you cousin!
Sometimes, at 1am, you get bored. I discovered that Fuck Yeah 909 wasn’t taken and decided to take it. I thought it’d be funny to poke fun of the “IE” and people stereotypically associated with it. Bros, bro hos, lifted trucks, etc. Because a lot of people on antiduckface.com remind me of people around here.
I don’t know what to post really. Send me suggestions?
Life has been hectic as hell and now this happens.
I am so beyond pissed off that I’m wasting a whole freakin day once every two weeks to get dental work down in effin TJ. Yes, Mexico. I don’t (neither do my parents) have insurance or cash to pay $7k to get everything i need to get done in the US. A root canal I needed, a dental office here in Upland wanted to charge me $1800!!!! I did it in TJ for about $300! (Don’t worry, my dad has been going to this guy for 15 years).
It just really, really sucks.
So I had my teeth cleaned and a root canal the first visit. Now apparently my tooth that had a root canal was too short and they had to cut off some of my gum to make more of my tooth visible to hold the cap/crown/etc. Instead of my dad explaining to me what was happening, he just told them to do it. Then they told me they were going to do my whole top right (or a quadrant) because apparently I’m gum-y and my smile would look better this way. I currently have stitches in my mouth. FML.
It doesn’t hurt because I’m taking pain meds but it’s for sure swollen but now, they have to do my left side to make everything even. BTW, this looks like shit. Swollen, purple, and stitches. I can only eat things in small bites so I don’t chew anything on my right side.
