I know ya’ll are trying to get on some more cutesy bullshit that sensitively harkens back to some pop culture shit that you like but I’m just here to say:
I haven’t had a cigarette in 4 days and EVERYTHING IS ANNOYING TO ME. Don’t ever start smoking, this shit is terrible. Shout outs to my girlfriend/bandmates/other people I love for letting me be terrible to them while I try to defeat this dumb, dumb thing. Hemingway and Tom Waits made this shit sound so much cooler than it actually is.
Remember when people did things instead of just showing off to their friends how informed and progressive they are? If you reblog this, you’re part of the problem.
"if you hear a record by Bob Dylan or Neil Young or whatever
You must start thinkin’ “People like me, but i won’t be that good ever”
And I’m sure the thing is probably Dylan himself too stayed up some nights
Wishing he was as good as Ginsberg or Camus
And he was like “Dude, I’m such a faker, I’m just a clown who entertains
and these fools who pay for my crap, they just have pathetic punny brains
and Camus probably wished he was Milton too or whatever, you know what i’m sayin’?!”
We just finished recording our album. 8 months of hard work all came down to these two days. I feel very very excited and a little nervous.
I’m tired. Blog posts are stupid.
We are playing tomorrow in Columbia south carolina with people from Less than Jake, Catch 22, and The Arrogant Sons of Bitches
Sunday, with Radiator Hospital and the Mineral Girls.
January 16th in Durham.
We are playing with Curtis Eller on January 24th at the Evening Muse. Come to that show above all.
