figured i'd post this here too. [22 Dec 2004|05:46pm]
[ mood | tired ]

(i posted this in a blog on my "myspace")

so this past weekend will be called "My Weekend with ITDUBS"

heres how it went;

Friday, met up with dancho around 8.. we drove to london together with the radio off, just talking about shit and smoking blunts.. as much as you wouldn't believe it was a good time, it really was.. time flew by prolly the quickest 2hrs i've ever spent in a car with someone. The show was decent.. ITW played a great set... busted out a Comeback Kid cover.. that was awesome.

Saturday: ITW in st catharines.. had to go to this show.. 2nd last show.. 2nd last chance to see em. they played great once again.. kids were loving it, dancing, singing along..

Sunday: the best show of the weekend.. 500 kids packed the Rosevilla in welland to see ITW last show. It took us over an hour to let all the kids in at the door (making sure they had tickets or advanced tickets.. etc.. ) Everyone had such a great night.. it was sad.. but special none the less.. PERFECT send off for a great bunch of guys.

And all that got me thinking.. how the tenure of ITW as a band basically mirrors the time i was friends with all those guys..especially dancho.

When i first seen ITW.. it was May 2001.. at a show with Unearth in St Catharines.. it was there 2nd show as a band.. at the point I had known Danch and Berardi from their days as Drowning In Pig.. and i knew Fulop from Psilocybin.. didn't know tony or civak (original bass player)...

over the years i went to way to many of their shows.. and as time went on me and dancho became way to tight to the point where now i consider him one of my best friends.. and the years of goin to shows and hangouts gave me time to become such good friends with rob, and tony and eventually dallas too..

After the show was over sunday night.. there was tears in many peoples eyes.. and realizing that not only were these guys losing their band..they were losing a big part of themselves.

but it was a part that touched a lot of peoples lives.. and made a lot of people smile.. and made a lot of people happy.

and yea.. those dudes were definately a great band.. but they are EVEN GREATER friends.

i seriously love you guys like family and am thankful for you guys letting me help you out any way i could.. and making me feel like i belonged.


the show on the sunday was awesome.. seen alot of people, sheryl, denise (welcome home!!), kandice, bianca etc etc.. turn out was great.. little problems arose (one fight early on, one girl puking on herself..) otherwise it was just hundreds of kids united under a common goal: to give ITW one hell of a sendoff.

im at work.

i woke up at 8:55 to work at 9.. so i put the clothes on I wore lastnight.. and didnt shower. WOOOOOOOOOOOO for being dirty haha.

The show lastnight was rad. didn't see the first band. Saw a bit of Sara Tonen's Gone...good band.. their drummer was hilarious to watch..way to energetic. Then QLA took the stage, fucking good time there.. its great.. two of my life long best friends band. And some fuckin hard metal.. no trends.. no nothing..just straight up good shit. After that.. the crew of us thorold kids went outside to hang out and get high.. such an anti-social bunch we are.

Umm.. The Klopeks, Snips and MTM played unreal sets.. the MTM cd is fuckin rad.. and I got a fuckin huge thank you.. right after all the important people.. like their families, the record label (heh) and Juice who recorded it.. then ME.. haha it was nice to see that.. sometimes i feel unappreciated for what i do for my friends..(not that i do it for them to thank me all day..) and it was rad to see they gave me a thanks. Good cd.. if you don't own it..buy it.

Saw lots of people at the show. chatting it up wit Rye and leash for a bit.. saw bobby digital and a slew of others.. Katrina was there.. looking beautiful as ever. (i dont care if she reads this or not..katrina is a wicked babe.. and the sweetest girl ever no joke.. top notch girl.) and there was this girl there.. wearing a black tshirt and a green skirt.. i wish i got a chance to talk to her.. way to cute haha. if anyone knows her..who is she?!?! (rye looking your way haha)


gotta finish work.. then i get my car back this afternoon..fuckin finally.

We rise to fight, as one we stand tonight!
This is, this is our scene! it's what we breath, it's our reality,
You'll never understand the way that we feel...
Nothing to you but we hold it so dear, to live and breathe it truly is a way of life,
A way to deal with life's pain and strife.
Good times hanging out with all my friends,
Times like these we thought they'd never end... they never will, if you stay young at heart.
The only way is if we let if fall apart,
but I can't because I know every friday night it's HARDCORE, GOOD FRIENDS GOOD TIMES!
and every Saturday night you know it's hardcore stagedives, high fives!!!

Its funny if you went to a hardcore show, most people would think it was some sort of riot. Death Threat has it right. Fuckin eh

hrmm...its weird. [20 May 2004|04:49pm]
its funny...whenever i meet a girl from niagara..who is at all younger than me..they seem to be into the local music scene.. and upon getting to know them I always feel like a huge "name-dropping" fag whenever I talk about my friends..most of whom are involved in the local music scene..and a large percentage of which are in bands that these girls really love.

Its weird to meet girls who look up to your friends..and in alot of cases already know quite a bit about you as well.


hey LJ buddies!

on and on..... [23 Apr 2004|09:52am]
[ mood | good ]

its been a few days since I updated anything.. a few times i meant too..but i didnt.

Saturday i went to london..to drive adaadw to a show.. my friend shannen came with me. It was april 18th..3 months to the day her brother had died.. The ride up, and the time there..noone mentioned it..thou it was on all our minds in one way or another..but on the ride home, once danch fell asleep it was all me, shannen and shieko talked about..for 2 hours.

It was weird..three people who are pretty close..but who all have varying views of his life. On one hand you have family..then a near life-long friend..then someone who met him thru others..and spent alot of time with him in his worst drug using days.

It was one of my first real chances to talk to shannen..as opposed to listen and comfort.. shes doing much better about the entire thing..and that makes me glad.. no matter what people say or think about her..she is a great girl..and has been nothing but a good friend in the 5 plus years i've known her.


Anyways.. most of this week was spent working..and hangin out. Tuesday me and C-Bos went to the Mandarin for dinner..and got stupidly high..and ate like maniacs. Way too many hot girls at the mandarin..great times.. then we watched MTV Cribs on the Playboy Mansion.

Heff fuckin rules.

Otherwise the majority of my time was spent wit Meg..

fuck..why is she so awesome? its rediculous. I think right now..the thing i dig the most about her is the way she will call me from work and coyly ask me to pick her up because her brother has her car..shes knows full well i'll say yes..because we normally have plans to meet up when shes done work anyways..but she always seems so shy to ask me..man shes unreal.

ahem. enough about that.

This weekend is more ADAADW shows.. Brampton on Saturday, Sudbury on Sunday and Welland Monday..im off work monday..and Tuesday ill be dying. but its fun and my friends rule.

so my weekend... [29 Mar 2004|04:06pm]


Friday: worked..hung out with this girl..it went ok..not as good as I had hoped..but not so bad..she was cute, and loved my tattoos..but I dunno I wasn't feeling it..i think it had something to do with her open..almost trashy attitude about sex. kinda turned me off of her. After I drover her home, I came into work for a bit to do some stuff I needed to get done..wasnt so bad. After that I went to Robbo's for a bit..hung out caught a bit of the ADAADW jam..watched camel and Mr Koryn play doctor mario..Robbos is always a good time..ive come to the conclusion that bad times arent allowed there. After that I picked up my friend from work..gave him a ride home, and had a grilled cheese sandwich..it was dyno-mite.

Saturday: woke up late..went and got unreal sandwichs from this place in welland called "Evelyn's Sandwich Factory" sooo good. I recomend highly. Then I went to danchos we packed the trailer and headed to the ADAADW show in windsor.. the drive was applesauce..then my car fucked up and i drove the rest of the way in sheer terror..The car drove fine..but I was nervous. They played great..and I got to check out their new rad merch..hoodies, zip ups..new t's... they are like a real band how cute...heh. Got home at like 6am..i was tired..i went to bed.

Sunday: woke up at 3..fucked around all day till like 7..then went and got kev..then went to andys..where we watched simpsons..and got high..then it was off to STEVE-O and the "Don't Try This At Home Tour" in hamilton..was a fun time..watched the follow events: steveo snort salt..chug tequila, squirt lime juice in his eyes, have ppl spit in his eyes, balance a knife on his nose, staple bras and panties to his body, chug beers, break beer cans on his head, shock himself with a stun gun, do a backflip of a 10 foot ladder..with about 3 feet of clearance above his head..light his head on fire..etc.. it was fun..Chris "Party Boy" Pontius and Wee-man were also there..it was fun..and i didnt get home too late..

thou i did stay up until 4 am..like a fool heh.

"Ain't Like You (Wasted Youth II)"


And I don't want your love.
And I don't need your respect.
I just can't hate enough but I got no tears or regrets.

I ain't like you
I will never live like you and you will never walk the path I do.
I will never be like you and I'll never be a part of your society of lies and fools.
I will never live like you.
I will never walk the path you do.
I am your wasted youth so...
Fuck you and society too 'cause my kind just ain't like you.

Yeah, I'm a King of Nothing,
'cause nothing's what I am and nowhere is where I'll be.
But I'd rather be a king of nothing than a servant in a sick society
'cause pretty little children playing pretty little games in their pretty little worlds is all I've ever seen.
You've never felt my pain
And I just gotta say to your face I ain't like you.

I will never live like you
And you will never walk my path so...
Fuck you and your society too.

Once again I'm a King of Nothing,
'cause nothing's what I am and nowhere is where I'll be.
I'm a nowhere man from Nowhere, U.S.A.
It's a dead end street near you.
They broke my heart, they stole my soul and why?
I'll never know.
I'm exiled from all of you so...
Fuck you and the whole world too 'cause I will never live like you.

If you don't like it... you can suck my dick.
