I really need some friends who listen to the same music I do. I have some, but it's not quite the same. The Wonder Years, for instance, is a band I'd love to share with someone, but I don't really know anyone who listens to that kind of music.
The friends I do have are great.
Yesterday I went to a baseball game and I hung out with a friend who I hadn't seen since middlechool graduation. It was really great to talk to him. His voice has gotten deep! We watched the game from an overlook of centerfield. It was a great moment. I wish I could've captured it. Maybe I'll write a song to try to savor the moment.
I'm sick today. I can't even hum without my voice dying, much less sing. I cleaned my room (it looks wonderful.) And I decided to make a set since I haven't made one in a while. Hopefully it won't be as long a gap until I make another one.
This set is dedicated to the band that helped me become the person I am today. They are no longer together, and I needed time before I could make this set. There is no way I could ever repay them for everything they did for me, and no way they'd know what they did for me. They taught me of the pain in my heart, and showed me it is possible to make it through. They introduced me to music. Not just poppy rhymes and rhythms, but real music. Music that makes a difference. It's because of them I play guitar and bass and even write songs.
They will always be in my heart, and in my ears. As I will hopefully be in their heart as one of the millions of fans who was saved by them.
Thank you, Mikey, Gerard, Ray, and Frank. Thanks for everything. So long, and goodnight.
I saw Pierce the Veil live. They were incredible! It was a great experience. When they came on stage, I was smiling like crazy. They looked exactly like they do in videos and pictures, only they were actually real. I could've poked them if I was close enough! They are such beautiful people. I sang every word, just like everyone else. By the second song my throat already hurt. It was great. I was standing in the perfect place. I wasn't in the pit (I'm short) But I was close enough that I could see their faces clearly. It was wonderful how into it they were. Headbanging and jumping around without a care, Giving a full 100% I vowed to do that. Mostly I just try to hide away from everything, But now I'm thinking I should speak out, Not be afraid to stand out.
Memphis May Fire was awesome too. I especially liked Legacy, which is one thing Causing me to feel this way about speaking out. I also liked Prove Me Right. "This song is about how nobody believed I could make it, and they just proved me right." The lead singer of that band was awesome. I'm impressed by people who can jump and play guitar at the same time without messing up. I fail at it. Practice!
But yeah, it was fantastic to see Pierce the Veil live :)
But earlier I was crying about My Chemical Romance breaking up. They basically made me who I am, and it's over. It was great while it lasted, but I will never EVER be able to see them live. That is basically the number one thing I wanted to do. See them live. And it's never going to happen. That really bothers me. I'm never going to see their real faces, or hear their real music. All I have is screens and CDs.
Alas, I cannot dwell on their decision to break up. I will do great things myself!
I just learned this song on guitar. Yay. And I can sing it pretty well Which is a plus. Tomorrow I'm going to a poetry reading with my friend who was my best friend in elementary school. Should be funnn.
