“'The easiest thing in the world is to come up with an excuse not to do something. I found that the most important thing in life is to stop saying,'I wish,' and to start saying,'I will.'
‘Before there can be wonders, there must be wonder.’
‘Whenever I pursued my dreams, I discovered something astonishing-I discovered myself. My secret has been to consider nothing impossible. Then to treat possibilities as probabilities.’
‘Passion is everything.’
‘I learned that there were two ways I could live my life: following my dreams or doing something else. Dreams aren’t a matter of chance, but a matter of choice. When I dream, I believe I am rehearsing my future.’”—David Copperfield
“Retail customers of Bank of America and of any other bank that follows its lead should swiftly move their business. I am certain that other banks will welcome the competitive opportunity that Bank of America has given them with its arrogant and disingenuous action and justification.”
So I remembered to bring my massive art case and supplies for my class today but forgot to bring the tube that contains my project, somehow I didn’t actually realize until I was already at work. When I got in touch with my drawing professor and told him I was going to be late because I forgot my project, he responded by telling me that since I actually already have a project I’m already far ahead of almost the entire class and further stated that if I feel more comfortable drawing at home I can that he doesn’t worry about me he said “I trust your eye” I think it’s awesome the confidence he has in me it’s very encouraging. I rarely get a professor that actually tries to nurture their students’ abilities and to do it as unbiased too. Glad I registered for this class also I’m super stoked on this project, and that hasn’t happened in a while.
Side Projects Are Never Successful - Bomb The Music Industry!
It was a hot June day, and my ass was sticking to the seat of my girlfriend’s car. Staten Island traffic in the summer, baby.
And when you stuff yourself into a suit and tie do you think the judge can see through the sweat as he gives you your fine for a post-panic attack speeding ticket on a 90 degree day in New York. And yeah, you’re gonna drive home for three hours to work in a basement for tribute bands making posters to pay about a fifth of that price. It’s just Staten Island traffic in the summer. Oh!
That orange ball. That burning orb of fire in the sky is gonna explode and we’re all gonna die! Except for the foolish few who will “think ahead” and drive their SUV’s to their bomb shelters Complain about air conditioning because “baby, we ain’t got no more electricity.” They wanna rise when it’s done, be a leader with a gun. Be a leader of what? Like a hundred and one? Well, fuck it, I’m gonna hang out on the rooftop when it comes.
‘Cause when it’s dark, it’ll be night time, baby. And I’ll get my ass on up out of this mess. The only stores that are open, baby. They gonna sell beer, and they’re gonna sell ice cream. And we’ll drink drink drink and get drunk drunk drunk And we’ll talk talk talk about how much fun we had, yeah, when We were fuckin’ the world.
Through the glares on our windshields, we can’t see each others eyes, just McDonalds cups and wrappers that they’re throwing at full speed. And yes, I long for a shadow. And yes, I always appreciate the irony that the only cool comfort that allows us to see is a goddamn billboard. Sing it with me.
A bill board is the only thing preventing us from blindly crashing. And we’ll never see a city not marred by advertisements, and we’ll NEVER have a future not working for those companies, and it’s sure as shit not getting better so we might as well accept it now, oh.
And that really doesn’t cheapen anything because, baby, we’re all born to be businessmen. Every Fugazi record has a catalog number and a price tag and every independent label is selling you another goddamn product. But, NO, WE’RE not slaves to the music. Oh no, WE’RE not slaves to the company, baby. We do what we’re born and raised to do and when you create something, you’re producing something and that act of producing is the creation of a product.
‘Cause when it’s night, it’ll be night time, baby. And I’ll get my ass on up out of this mess. The only stores that are open, baby. They gonna sell beer, and they’re gonna sell ice cream. And we’ll drink drink drink and get drunk drunk drunk And we’ll talk talk talk about how much fun we had, yeah, when We were fuckin’ the world. Oh we were fucking the world. Yeah, we were fu fu cking cking the the world world.
When the sun drops, you ain’t gonna be hungover the next day. When the comet hits, you ain’t gonna have no bills to pay. When the bomb hits, it’s gonna be a four day weekend. Hey hey! When it’s all done I’m gonna feel great finally.
And when I finally got to work today, I ate my Subway sandwich, and I drank my Coca-Cola Classic, and then I ate my Sunchips and I thought about the weekend when I’d fill up my Ford van with Mobil brand gas and drive to the Clear Channel venue and I’d drink myself a Budweiser and play my Fender guitar through my Fender amplifier and tell the kids with a straight face through a Shure microphone and JBL speakers that corporate rock is for suckers.
finally online articles have been surfacing regarding whether or not iphone 4 cases will fit the newer iphones, survey says they won’t. Take that! the 7 different companies I spoke to this last week that told me otherwise. the phone is slightly thicker than the previous at&t 4 (about as thick as the white verizon 4), the buttons are said to be in a slightly different place, and the flash is rumored to be brighter which will only worsen the already complained about flash reflecting the case color changing the entire color of the photo that is already happening with several iphone 4 cases. Of course nothing can be said for certain since nobody has actually gotten their hands on the new 4s but from photos we’ve seen and one of the biggest cases manufacturers, otterbox, stating on their website that the old cases won’t work on the new phones we might all want to wait just a bit before going out and buying cases (unless you are a fan of otterbox who have already created a new line for the 4s and are currently taking preorders).
“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”—Thomas Jefferson (via cold-cry)
Got up on the wrong side of life this morning ... Nothin' today is gonna go my way
seriously everything today has so far either frustrated, annoyed, or just down right pissed me off. I’m not really going to get into it, because seriously who wants to read about it? but being that everything seems to suck today I’m going to listen to the Descendents hopefully brighten my day up a bit
