If you could fix one thing about yourself today..what would it be? and I don’t mean physical stuff like diets, muscles, or boob jobs..I mean in your heart…Mine would be my useless anger..now, Im usually pretty calm..but if I think about something that’s bugging me..I get even more upset inside..haha I even go through scenarios in my head of how things will play out..I don’t want that anymore..I want to be more like my grandfather..calm and collected..letting things roll of his shoulder like its no big deal..(he’s right, by the way, its never a big deal)..i guess this a declaration of freedom..me saying “I’m done”..but we all know that real healing takes time..and work..so it may happen again…who knows..maybe today..but im gonna try to get better…
its done..and the rough mixes are almost in..we still don’t know what we’re gonna call it..or what the artwork is gonna look like..but im stoked on it..its different..and i don’t mean to be cliche when i say that..but its not as happy as the last record (to me)..but im ok with that..we all go through seasons..this one brought some clouds..it says some things i needed to get off my chest..as well as tells stories..hope ya like it..
do I eat this?..yes..I do..but remember..everything in moderation people…and fact: a moderate amount of spam is not a lot of spam
setting - two fellas standing over a grill at a hardware store, having just met because their wives know each other from Wednesday night book club, trying to make conversation.
terry: “Those sure are some nice grills..And I sure do love grilling”
tommy: “Yep! I grill all the time…and I went for two semesters to culinary school, sooooo yeah”
this is a completely fabricated situation..but I swear I’ve heard at least 10 of these “sweet brags” in the past 3 days..and each time i hear em..the urge to ease my way into the conversation.. and make it super awkward.. gets stronger and stronger
im forgainst em..i hate certain ones..but man are the other ones necessary..people would just walk around saying whatever they want…good or bad thing?..i don’t know…sometimes i want to say certain things but can’t because of..well..that’s another discussion..the point is ..should you be able to say what you want? whenever you want? I have a theory and i call it “sweet truth”..being completely honest, but with grace and encouragement. I’m just rambling..and im sure this is common knowledge..but how many times do we forget this? to be honest and loving all at the same time..i know i forget..but thats ok..im learning..
listening to these guys..some of the best music everrrr…every time i dive into one of their records, i instantly want to hang with Raine Maida…just to have a conversation..top 5 best vocalist (inmyopinion)
since im cooking this tomorrow and i just started this blog..i thought you should know another important fact about me..corned beef and cabbage is my absolute favorite meal (quebecois poutine comes in a close second)..seriously..i could eat it every day..
I have a favorite movie..its in rotation with all my other favorite movies..its called ghostbusters ll..i can pretty much quote the entire movie
As most of you guys know..we’ve been working on a new album recently and its coming along great..we’re still writing and will be recording very soon..keep an eye out and help spread the word..also..expect a little different tone on some of these songs on this record..i’ve been searching for things to say and searching myself..and honestly, theres been some things that are fueling the fire..check this out..and i know these people DON’T deserve more press..but this is not ok..this IS NOT what we stand for:
