tonight on the mass pike

Filed under: Uncategorized — lj @ 12:50 am

The best thing to do on the Mass Pike, or any toll road where there is a set toll (in this case, $1): give the toll-taker $2 and say you’re paying for the person in back of you. They will chase you down the highway all night to try to figure out who paid their toll for them. Also, putting shit in the change slot of a snack machine, like paperclips and pennies and a bunch of quarters. People really feel like they beat the system if they reach in to get their change and there’s an extra twenty-five cents in there. Whatever makes them happy, I guess.

Getting to see one of your favorite bands is always fun. Getting to see them two nights in a row is even better, duh. We had some trouble in Providence getting into the Straylight Run/Gratitude show since it was sold out, but whatever. Met Chris and Ryan, they were cool kids. Met a girl. Well, we recognized each other from the Reggie show last week. She was going to get me in but I bought a ticket just as she was walking to the front to give me one. Gratitude was awesome. Minus the Bear, as well. Straylight’s set was just as up-and-down, boring-to-great as the CD is. They played two new songs, and again, one of them was incredibly bland and I liked the other one. And I got to talk to Amanda all night. eee 🙂

Amanda texted me today and said she had an extra ticket to Straylight/Gratitude in Boston and I could take it.. so I drove to Boston for the first time on the Mass Pike, got lost, ended up in Cambridge, Sean saved me; missed Spitalfield but whatever, and saw another great show. Talked to Jonah and apologized on behalf of Teh Intarnets. Gratitude’s set was amazing, I got to talk to Amanda in between songs. We’re going to be hanging out at Bamboozle at the end of the month, I’m excited for that. Three days of awesomeness.

In conclusion, I love meeting new people that don’t suck, especially girls, and hearing good bands.

Oh yeah, I bought Annie a Minus the Bear poster, but too bad I never see her except on AIM, roflcopter.

I think my parents think I’m a slut. LOL I WISH. Because there’s always some new girl I’m “going out” with. I tried to explain the difference between “going out” and going out, but that sort of thing doesn’t translate well verbally.

  4. and if you were looking forword to seeing Brand New and you didnt hear yet… “We regret to inform everyone that Brand New has had to cancel their Bamboozle appearance. Jesse recently had surgery and is recuperating. He’s recovering well, however this issue has understandably taken priority over rehearsing and performing. The guys are very sorry to miss this show and hope to be back in action soon.” – brand new site.

  8. No, that was last year. My dad was pissed about me being gay. I guess he realized I wasn’t, and now he’s mad about too many girls. What does it take to make these people happy?

  9. Asexuality. When you’re 27, your arm better fall off and give them some grandkids.
