|Today You Learn About: My Saturday (not quite) Of Doom
Saturday was quite good.
Got into town abouuuuut 2ish... hung around... bought 24 cans of carling
...headed over to Blitzer, Mike, Maz and Betts' flat and smoked a couple of spliffs
Walked over to Vari and Gillians, they were out
Headed over to Johns... Gav arrived later and we played games until about 6.30, I kicked their asses at RISK... whose your daddy
I didn't get to my bed till after 7 and slept till 4pm.
IDiedAtLakeBodom: I never bother enough to care
IDiedAtLakeBodom: no one really wants to speak to me ne way
IDiedAtLakeBodom: and I sure as hell don't want to speak to them
IDiedAtLakeBodom: thats why I'm going to live in a cave
IDiedAtLakeBodom: with nothing but musical instruments and recording equipment
IDiedAtLakeBodom: but the acoustics will be really bad, so better make it a studio instead of a cave

|Today You Learn About: The True Path
I am planning a Saturday of DOOM
This is to combat the feeling that my existence is mundane
The basic script is I'm trying to fit in visiting AS MANY people as possible,
I'm aiming to drop into 4 different flats and get progressively more drunk at each
On another note, heres a short conversation I had today:
†MHP: I killed a man with rock n roll
Mr. X: we should kill a crowd with rock n roll..that would rock
†MHP: no dude
†MHP: I was angry back then
†MHP: Zen man
Mr. X: hahahaha
†MHP: now I've learned the true path
†MHP: to bring rock into mans heart

|Today You Learn About:Directionlessness
Ever get the feeling that your life is going down the toilet?
I DO :D:D:D most days as well!
Especially when I wake up between 2.30 and 3.00 pm :D:D:D
Right now I have litterally no idea where my career is going or if I even have a career, I feel more directionless then almost ever.
A while ago my friend Kaz gave me lyrics and asked me to write music for them and I did the mainstay of it in a couple of hours, then finished it during the week.
I wish someone would come along and pay me for doing that, Jesus Christ! I could make so much money writing gay pop songs with 3 chords in them if I knew the right people.

|Today You Learn About: My Wrird New Yrars Eve
First I was having a few quiet drinks and a chat...
Then I was doing fine, tripping out on mushroom and laughing and stuff...
Then there's this big episode that I don't remember but it involved a freak out
And Then I woke up on a bed after having loads of weird dreams, but now pretty sober
All of a sudden there were lots of people at the party and I didn't feel very sociable any more

|Today You Learn About: Nothing In Particular
You probably have not been wondering where I have been all this time and I have a very legitimate answer to your non-enquiry.
I was kidnapped by evil mongoose pixes (of the antiok dynasty).
They took me to an underground caverns and tickled me and also did strange experiments such as hitting my libs with chicken drumsticks to see if they would turn green or remain flesh-coloured.
Afterwards we had a few beers and watched the complete first season of Sex And The City. Can you BELIEVE that Miranda? she's just the craziest.
Anyway, thanks to efforts from the Norwegian Council of Waste Removal, I've sucessfully made it home and am now enjoying frequent expressos at my local Costa.
Thats the story I've been advised to stick with anyway.
7% of Llamas corroborate this story.

|Today You Learn About: Touching Heaven In Sleep
I had a weird experience in my dreams last night. I wouldn't call it a spiritual experience (and certainly not a religious experience) because I amn't permanently changed by it or anything but it was thought provoking.
I was dead and being a ghost in this upper realm type thing, and any time you're tired of being a ghost you can go upstairs and move on to the next world.
You know how when you're asleep your dreams can trigger off emotions the same way as life does?
Fear, Happiness, Sadness, Love... the full spectrum...
Well, when I finally went upstairs there was this bright light shining through the clouds and in a few seconds I was drifting towards it I felt TOTAL divinity run through my entire body, it was so euphoric and the closer I got the stronger it got like a light shining brighter, spreading through my entire body. All in about 3 seconds I was touching the Realm of the Lord.
As I was drifting (same 3 seconds) I looked down through the clouds at the world and I wondered what would happen if I went there instead of into the light and if I tried to see what it was like would I get another chance to go up later...
...I started falling, falling to the ground, through the ground and into the fiery pit, just for a second, then I woke up staring at the wall, I felt like Satan was behind me.
You know the expression "Get ye behind me Satan?"
I'd say it's the last place you want him to be, you can't see what mischief he's getting up to and you'll be too scared to look behind you and check.
Keep him where you can see him.
I have never been a believer in religion, and certainly not heaven or hell, however Steve, my band mate, likes the symbolism of Jesus as a saviour and Satan as he who tempts us to stray from a richeous path. I think my dream was merely symbolic, but I'd give anything to touch the realm of the Lord once again.

|Today You learn About: Me And My Crazy Rock N' Roll Antics
Yesterday I went with fifteen other folk to an Indian buffet/karaoke thing... 5 drinks included
Yes I think 5 glasses of Red will get anyone started... t'was joyous
So after the meal is done and the drinkery is well underway the Karaoke begins, people go up and kind of look at the screen while singing and no one takes *that* much notice unless it's someone they know...
...then el Senior "Antony Mc. Rock" (as I put my name down in a drunken haze) takes the mic for Schools Out by Alice Cooper and totally rocked the house, everyone was watching.
Seeing my mate Anthony (not to be confused with me) screaming back the lyrics I motioned for him to join me for all the end chorusey bit and we formed an alliance of Rock. Brillig and the slithy toves did gyre and gimble in the wabe.
Most of the people didn't even know they'd just had a free show from an accomplished rockstar :D
So later on Chris (sober), Nadia (wrecked) and I (drunk) are walking to Nadias place of work (McDonalds) because she happarently wants to set me up with her friend... who wasn't working.... "I know!" she says "Lets go to her house..."
So on the trek goes though roads and over these hilly grassy bits, finally we're walking doesn this long road and somehow Nadia and I end up lying down on the wet road while Chris tries to convince us to stop being stupid and get up. But it's just too comfy and the sky looks so beautiful with the full moon... we try and convince him to "just try" lying down on the road for like a minute to see what it's like but he's having none of it. He starts walking away and we complain to each other about his lack of wreklessness.
After a good while of lying "Car, Car!!" shouts Chris, we scramble to our feet and get off the road as a bewildered taxi driver passes us :P
We abandoned the plan to go to this chicks house and began walking back to McDonalds, as we're walking, Nadia says: "You know we could go to Bubbles' house, she lives near here" ... hilarious! god she must have been wasted...
I end up crashing on Chrises' couch. His parents are cool.

|Today You Learn About: How Girls Find Dedication Sexy
I told my friend Hannah, on MSN, that I had 3 full-day rehearsals in 6 days, had another planned for tomorrow and hopefully one for the following day.
She told me this was sexy.
I didn't understand why it was sexy and so conducted a survey of 4 other female friends to find out their opinion on strange phenomenon:
"It is actually"
"you big rockstar you"
"sexy? more like busy"
"*orgasms on the spot*"
"i would say cool...more than sexy"
"maybe she was just talking bout you in general"

|Today You Learn About: A Myrid Of Shameful Behaviour
I went out to the land of Bedlam yesterday, stopping at Emmas' for 4 Kronenbourgs, headed over to the ex-solid west for a game of pool in which I did not bad at all,
At the end of the game I had two shots, the first put me in perfect position to pot my last ball, did so, then got the black in effortlesly. I was so pround of myself coz I'm really shite pool usually.
Got well and truly trashed, Denise slapped the back of my head as promised.
I gotz a girls number! she's called Ruth and is none other then MURRAYS' SISTER!!!!
He told me to behave and then he left to the magical downstairs land, and when he came back I was like "Murray, I want to take your sister out to lunch" and he's like "Fine." Sweet!
Happerently it's the first time she's been out in Glasgow, so when she sees what else is on offer to a beautiful girl like her... ...well, she'll stick her tongue out and say she's seeing a rockstar :P... yeh...
Then went off to some persons house as a pre-party with a lot of folk and alcohol.
After an hour or two or whatever we went over to the party, where I was once again likened to Prince, got really stoned and crashed out. When I came round most folk had left and me and a dude I know headed out in time for me to get home at 8.00am :D
Sometimes it's hard being a rockstar

|Today You Learn About: Trying to turn your partners nipples inside out
Excellent rehearsals on Tuesday and Thursday, we're sounding really unique and original... don't stop at the top :)
I was jamming with some other musicians (Blip and Patton) on Wednesday as well, doing some sort of funky rap/rock dealie, sounded like Rage Against The Machine meets Massive Attack and a rally funky influence, it's amazing how full drums+bass+rap vocals can sound, weird that... rap is very percussive and can fill out the simplest of music... couldn't be in a hip hop band tho :P
I really do live music, I love jamming all styles.
quote of the day:
"it takes some getting-to-know-you before you can get away with trying to turn your partners nipples inside out"

|Today You Learn About: Shogun: Total War
I am frustrated by the lack of band rehearsals. Need to get back into the swing of things.
Still, I have been playing with my new toy( GorgeousCollapse )
Today I installed a computer game called: "Shogun: Total War"
I love how it's TOTAL War as opposed to some half-assed not quite but almost total war, hehe:
Shogun: Partial War
Doesn't exactly have the same ring to it now, does it?
