It’s Father’s Day… ‘n’ shit.
HEY!!! What the fuck is up, eh??? Long time no see!!! Hehe, yeah yeah, I know, I’ve been absent for way too long.
How are all of you doing? I’ve been riding the emotional roller coaster again; it makes my life pretty fubar, hence why I disappeared. I can’t write when my mind is overly pre-occupied with other shite; it needs to calm down a little. Honestly, out of the past couple o’ months, today is the first day I’m starting to feel like I can peek out from underneath all the damn hoopla and drama I’ve been enduring on a daily basis.
Despite my absence, the site has been ROCKIN’ like no tomorrow with visitors, and that’s because everyone and their mother wants to read my latest review: Life of Agony’s Broken Valley! Good God, it’s such an emotionally-packed killer album. I still have major difficulties listening through the entire thing in one shot, and now since I finally own the CD—yes, the limited edition one with the bonus DVD—reading the lyrics just made the entire album’s experience about 1,000,000,000+ times harder. At least I’m getting them memorized, though, which is very important to me. I might do the Charisma Carpenter method, that way I can bang out two accomplishments with one stone—provide people with the lyrics and learn ’em myself. I cannot stress the recommendation enough to all fans to obtain this version, because the bonus DVD is just purely outFUCKINGstanding.
I just want to make one comment, if I may, about all these assholes I’ve been coming across in other reviews about the album. Please fucking grow up already. Expand your musical horizons and stop thinking we’re still in 1993. Do not expect Broken Valley to be River Runs Red II or Ugly II, okay? Thanks. I seriously would have to join countless retarded message boards and forums just to yell at people, but I am just so sick of saying shit that gets no respect, and my words just fly above their heads. Fuck it. Oh yeah, and another thing, where does everyone get this whole “Keith Caputo whines too much” thing from? I’m sorry to disappoint you, but I’ve never heard any “whininess” in any song or album. Ever. If you could be oh-so-kind, please shut the fuck up if you don’t know what in the hell you’re saying.
All righty, so! Guess what? Didja all know today is Father’s Day!?! I don’t think I’ve done a holiday post in a while, but as I’m writing this, I can smell the barbecue outside. Aww yeah, baby! I am STARVING!!! Nothin’ like writing on an empty tum-tum to get the thoughts flowin’, eh?
Earlier this month—Sunday, June 5, 2005—the “famiglia” and I went to Long Island for my cousin Nick’s wedding. Wow! It’s been AGES since I’ve seen him, about a decade from what he told me. I’ll tell you somethin’, though, I have never had so much fun at a wedding in my life!!! I danced so much and with so many different people, it was just insane! I barely dance at weddings, just mostly hang out and socialize, but this wedding was a blast, and really took the cake big time. I took about seventy (70) shots which are posted in The Galleria, click here to take a peek. My captions are not posted yet, because I was tending to my brain’s suffering. I really don’t like the way I came out in a couple of of the shots, but oh well. I’ve been told photos do not give me justice—I’m sexier in person, hehe! I just with I had some shots of me dancing.
However, I will admit this—I was really dreading going to this wedding for one reason and one reason only—I knew my cousin Larissa would be in attendance, and considering all the fucking bullshit drama we have been through in the last year or so, I was really wondering if she would say anything to me, and guess what, kids?! Can y’all believe she and I literally did not speak one PEEP to each other? Most of the first cousins were all at the same table, and not only did we literally sit right across from each other, but she had the nerve to refuse to sit next to me, so they told Nick’s best friend Manny to plop himself between us. HAHAHAHA!!! That’s just rich. As I made my way to the table, though, I mumbled something to her husband, John. It actually was pretty funny, because I said “Look it’s your favorite person in the whole wide world: Maya!” Hehe, the devious lil’ Libra emerges to the surface again, I’m sorry. I am, however, more sorry for my dear cousin, who must be so ticked off at me for silly reasons that she refuses to speak to me. Hey, I’m available day or night for reconciling, I’m just waiting for you to get off your severely high horse and jump back down to reality. Kiss-kiss!
Changing gears to a more happy notation—I am pleased to announce I have rejoined MySpace dot com. My brother refers to it as “the ultimate meat market,” haha, and yes I can agree, but I decided to take it a lil’ bit further and start looking through all the music profiles to see if there were any good ambient artists out there. Low and behold, I found a ton, and these guys are seriously the most sweetest people ever! Many are very supporting emotionally, plus their music really kicks ass, and I would not be surprised to find some links to them being posted soon somewhere here for extra exposure.
I’ve had the pleasure of adding a number of great people whom I’ve admired for a while, such as my “Big Daddy,” hehe, Lustmord. It’s good to know we share lots of the same musical preferences.
I also started a group page for my server, amplexus™, who have really been the bestest peoples I have known in the last nine years. We truly are a brutual bunch, but we can be super sweet if we want to. Much thanks for makin’ me the “queen,” hehe.
Okay, peoples, I believe that’s it for now. I knew there were a few other things I wanted to cover, but for some reason they have escaped my brain. If I remember them, I’ll come back, but if not, I’ll be back in the near future with some more news and information as usual.
Until then, enjoy!
