[music |[crappy song in the bar - idiot guys]]

Oh snap! Im in Italy right now. More specifically, im in Venice, Italy. And let me tell you something, anyone going to Venice, pack underware AND THATS IT! You'll roast like it's your job. i'm going to stop doing apostrophies because im getting weird pop-ups when i use it. anyways, yea, extremley hot here. i have no idea what to do right now though because in Italy, between 2-5 approxiately, every day, everyone closes their shops, goes home, and takes a nap, comes back, and re-opens their shop. hahaha, guess what time it is! about 3:30 so..eh. I have purchased nothing so far save for a bookbag, two "Churchill" size cigars, and a lot of gelato! Italian ice-cream tastes SOOOOO much better than any other kind of ice cream. its like soft serve in the form of hard dip + a bajillion more grams of sugar. either way, it tastes delicious. the pizza is way better here too, but the steak is ... well ... lets just say if i ordered it well-done, itd probably still say "moo!" its pretty much raw right off the bone which is kinda gross, (no i havent ordered it, my mommy got some on here salad and it was raw and icky), yesterday i had only one thing to eat, Omelette al Fromaggio! A wonderful CHEESE omelete! so yea, fun fun! i traveled for 24 hours from friday at 7:30 in the morning till Saturday at around 11:45 in the morning when we finally arrived in venice. best part is, they lost jays luggage! apparently that happens a lot. but anyways, time is running out for me here so im gonna split. lata!

Some song thats playing in the bar im in
I think its Celebrity Overnight or something
yea, it sucks.

[music |El Scorcho -]

oh dear lord! i am wearing my ab energizer right now. it tickled at first, but now i can watch my abs become magically ripped. ouch, it hurts!

*Gargle sound*

El Scorcho! Aye Carumba!
God Damn you half japanesse girls!
Do it to me everytime
Oh, the redhead said you shred the cello
And I'm jello, baby
But you won't talk, won't look, won't think of me
I'm the epitome of Public Enemy
Why you wanna go and do me like that?
Come down on the street and dance with me

I'm a lot like you so please Hello, I'm here, I'm waiting
I think I'd be good for you and you'd be good for me

I asked you to go to the Green Day concert
You said you never heard of them
-How cool is that?-
So I went to your room and read your diary:
"watching Grunge leg-drop New-Jack trough presstable..."
And then my heart stopped:
"listening to Cio-Cio San fall in love all over again."

I'm a lot like you so please Hello, I'm here, I'm waiting
I think I'd be good for ou and you'd be good for me

How stupid is it?
I can't talk about it
I gotta sing about it
And make a record of my heart
How stupid is it?
Won't you gimme a minute
Just come up to me
And say "hello" to my heart
How stupid is it?
For all I know you want me too
And maybe you just don't know what to do
or maybe you're scared to say:
"I'm falling for you"

I wish I could get my head out of the sand
Because I think we'd make a good team
And you could keep my fingernails clean
But that's just a stupid dream that I won't realize
Because I can't even look in your eyes
Without shakin'
And I ain't fakin'
I'll bring home the turkey if you bring home the bacon!

[music |Photograph - Weezer]

Me and sean are gonna fight. 'Cause he's a wuss and we're joining gamefly. so good things come in small doses and never last long. kinda like my life *hick laugh goes here*. in a matter of minutes i can go from excited and energetic to depressed and lethargic. manic-depressive? whatever. so, people find it hard to talk to me i guess. that's cool. being cold is not fun. i wish people would warm up. its kinda fun knowing you can do something good for a change. maybe i'm just suppose to do nice things and not even get the satisfaction of knowing you did something nice for someone. fun. and i suck at thinking people are happy. not even good enough for a goodbye? screw it. i'll try not to care aymore, maybe that'll work. jimi hendrix is awesome. and i love weezer. =\/\/= yea, half of you don't know what that means. its ok. you still suck, but its ok. tennis is over. i'm like 9-4 or 10-5 or something. im glad. now i can get a job. i still suck at guitar and have not had a piano lesson in over a month. i suck ass. i want to watch a movie but there is nothing good to watch. i definately think they're are people i meet i care way to much for, (as a friend), that will never notice nor fully understand it. i'm to big of a nice-guy. maybe i just care to much. perhaps my heads just not screwed on right. but i think, that the best answer of all, is that my heart, is three sizes to small. haha, not really. it was funny, in physics, nick was trying to proove that i have no soul using physics equations and shit and he said something about how i don't have a heart or something but i ended up reciting that whole thing about the grinch's socks and head and heart and it was funny. then mr. stearn's made fun of me and i made fun of distel for having "back boobs" and how he needs a backwards bra haha. i did a fire, but it only lasted a 1/2 hour and it was made mainly of paper and bamboo. there was a lot of smoke. i gotta get out of here. i've been taking long mid-night drives lately. it relaxes me. i just drive, listen to weezer, think, and look. and graveyards are not scary at 11:45 at night by yourself. especially if you are listening to keep fishin' at the same time. i don't eat lunch anymore. and im getting an ab energizer cause im sick and tired of trying and not getting a six pack. maybe i'm just to hard to satisfy. maybe im just really fucking annoying to people. or i just care to much. i bet that's it. cool. i suck. is this teen angst yet? probably. i'm 18 in 3 days. wait...yea 3. i had to think. i still think jimi is awesome. i got shit from denison today. woot. i just want to make some people happy. probably not gonna happen. and i've figured out what my sole purpose is in life. get ready. its sweet. actually its as dumb as a stump. here it comes. get ready. its amazing. here it is...right...NOW
make people laugh.
yea there it was.

yea i got nothing.

why don't you go die. no, no, not you. you, yea you. in the back. with the hat. yea, go die.

If you want it.
You can have it.
But you gotta learn to reach up there and grab it.

Cause everybody wants some love.
Shooting from the stars above. And although my heart will break,
there's more that I can take.
I can never get enough.

If you need it.
You should show it
Cause you might play so monastic that you blow it

Cause everybody wants some hope.
Something they can barely know.
And although my heart will break,
there's more that I can take.
I can never let it go.

It's in the Photograph
It's in the Photograph
It's in the Photograph of love

Cause everybody wants a dream.
Something they can barely see.
And although my heart will break,
there's more that I could take.
I could never let it be.

It's in the Photograph
It's in the Photograph
It's in the Photograph of love

If you blew it
Don't reject it
Just keep drawing up the plans and re-erect it
Just keep drawing up the plans and re-erect it
Just keep drawing up the plans and re-erect it

. . Motorcycle Drive By . . [May. 5th, 2005|12:14 am]
[mood |crushedcrushed]
[music |Motorcycle Drive By - Third Eye Blind]

i don't know why i try.

and the wind is blowing outside
in lower Chelsea
And I don't know what I'm doing in this city
The sun is always in my eyes
It crashes through the windows
and I'm sleeping on the couch
When I came to visit you,
that's when I knew
That I could never have you
I knew that before you did
Still I'm the one who's stupid,
And there's this burning,
like there's always been
I've never been so alone
And I've
never been so alive

Visions of you on a motorcycle drive by
Cigarette ash flies in your eyes and you don't mind
You smile,
and say the world doesn't fit with you
I don't believe you,
you're so serene
Careening through the universe,
your axis on a tilt
Your guiltless and free,
I hope you take a piece of me with you
There's things I would like to do
that you don't believe in
I would like to build something
But you'll never see it happen
And there's this burning,
like there's always been
I've never been so alone
And I've,
I've never been so alive

Where's the soul, I wanna to know
New York City is evil,
the surface is everything
But I could never do that,
someone would see through that
And this is the last time,
we'll be friends again
I'll get over you
and you'll wonder who I am

And there's this burning,
Just like there's always been
I've never been so alone,
And I've,
never been so alive

So alive..

So alive...

I go home
to the coast,
it starts to rain
I paddle out on the water,
Taste the salt and taste the pain
I'm not thinking of you again
Summer dies and swells rise,
The sun goes down in my eyes
See this rolling wave,
Darkly coming
to take me,

And I've
never been so alone,
And I've
never been...

. . I Picture You In The Sun . . [May. 5th, 2005|12:02 am]
[mood |depresseddepressed]
[music |In The Sun - Joseph Arthur]

i don't know why i feel like this. i feel as if i suck at life. can i make people happy? can i actually help people? or do i try to hard? do i have a big heart? or do i just try to make it bigger than what mine really is? maybe that's why i hurt so much. maybe that's why im never happy. maybe. i hope i have something to look forward to. i hope i help someone in my life. i hope this is not as good as it gets. i guess i'll have to find out.

I picture you in the sun wondering what went wrong
And falling down on your knees asking for sympathy
And being caught in between all you wish for and all you seen
And trying to find anything you can feel that you can believe in

May gods love be with you
May gods love be with you

I know I would apologize if I could see your eyes
cause when you showed me myself I became someone else
But I was caught in between all you wish for and all you need
I picture you fast asleep
A nightmare comes
You cant keep awake

May gods love be with you
May gods love be with you
May gods love be with you
May gods love be with you

cause if I find
If I find my own way
How much will I find
If I find
If I find my own way
How much will I find

I dont know anymore
What its for
Im not even sure
If there is anyone who is in the sun
Will you help me to understand
cause I been caught in between all I wish for and all I need
Maybe youre not even sure what its for
Any more than me

May gods love be with you
May gods love be with you

. . Money, its a gas . . [Apr. 29th, 2005|05:13 am]

[music |Money - Pink Floyd]

yea. i don't feel "well". =\ sara went with her girls last night to a party. smitty, josh grahm, kraut, and distel came over. i didn't get shot. wolfe, hurley, and swartz came later. i lost money. i made money. i broke even. i had a really weird...WEIRD dream. i talked to sara last night for a bit. i talked to alexandra too. and swartz. yea. that was my night. i tried to teach myself Money by Pink Floyd at 1:20am. didn't go to well. i suck at guitar. =\ well shit...

new people reading, (if anyone still is), i always put lyrics to the song im listening to at the end of my post. maybe it means something. you can figure that one out. but today's i'm telling you. Since I am V-M$NEY $$$, (that is V-money), I thought a song about money by a very good band was in order.

Get away.
Get a good job with good pay and you're Ok!
Its a gas.
Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash!
New car, cavier, four star day dream, think i'll buy me a football team.

Get back.
I'm allright jack keep you hands off my stack!
Its a hit.
a-Don't give me that go-good-good bullshit.
I'm in the high-fidelity first class traveling set
And I think I need a Lear jet.

(awesome saxaphone solo goes here - i can't play it)
(awesome guitar solo goes here - i can't play it)
(a second awesome guitar solo goes here - still can't play it)
(neato little riff/lick goes here - can't play guitar worth shit)

Money, it's a crime.
Share it fairly but don't take a slice of my pie.
Money, so they say
Is the root of all evil today.
But if you ask for a raise it's no surprise that they're
giving none away.

. . For a lovely little Rose loves me . . [Apr. 24th, 2005|09:09 pm]
[mood |crushedcrushed]
[music |[Rosie - Bye Bye Birdie]]

The musical is over. I cried tonight. A lot. I don't want it to be over. I'll never be on that stage ever again. I'm not ready to go on. I should have tried out for Albert. Whenever I hear "Rosie" or "Talk To Me" I cry. Anyone becoming a senior, take it all in. Don't rush to graduate. Slowly take it all in. Compress your time. Keep it with you for ever because you'll never get it back.

I was never crazy for flowers,
I confess that nothing left me colder;
I could watch a daisy for hours
And all I'd feel was several hours older!
Lilacs and lilies, any bloom you please,
All what they did was make me shrug or sneeze;
But now I love each blossom that I see,
For a lovely little rose loves me.
Now my life is rosy,
Since I found my Rosie,
With a girl like Rosie,
How could I be blue?
Hand in hand we'll mosey
Me and little Rosie,
We will be so cozy
By a fire built for two.
Oh! I once heard a poem that goes:
"A rose is a rose is a rose"
Well I don't agree,
Take it from me,
There's one rose sweeter than any that grows!
That's my Rosie,
I'm so glad she chose me;
Life is one sweet beautiful song to me.
Now my life is rosy, (Oh, we'll be happy, I know)
Since I found my Rosie,(Off to the preacher we'll go)
With a girl like Rosie,(So how could we be blue?)
How could I be blue?
Oh we'll have us a home out west,
A nice little split-level nest,
And in ev'ry room roses in bloom...
But there's on rose sweeter than all of the rest!
Then that's my Rosie
I'm so glad you chose me!
Life is one sweet beautiful song
When love is right then
What can be wrong?
Life is one sweet beautiful song
To me!

Don't you think that I'm bound to react now?
My fingers definately turning to black now
Maybe I'll put my live on ice
And teach myself, maybe that'll be nice

My books are sitting at the top of the stack now
The longer words are really breaking my back now
Maybe I'll learn to understand
Drawing a square with a pencil in hand

Mathematically turning the page
Unequivocally showing my age
I'm practically center stage
Undeniably earning your wage
Maybe I'll put my live on ice
And teach myself, maybe that'll be nice

Listen master can I ask you a question
Is it the fingers, or the brain
that you're teaching this lesson?
Maybe I'll put my live on ice
And teach myself, maybe that'll be nice
