I remember watching this gig being advertised on tv a long time ago. I think it was aired on MTV2 when they remotely played music. The Strokes had just released there debut record 'Is This It" in 2001, and this performance i think was in 2002 for the MTV2 "2 dollar bill" concert series or some shit. Anyway, look at how ridiculously cool they look.
I'm not going to pretend that i like/liked him. I also think he was a complete nut job, and the allegations against him made me dislike him immensely. However, i am aware of his contributions to the music world.
text messages...yes, we all do it. Although i would prefer talking to you (whoever) on the phone, sometimes a text is more convenient. Honestly...read that Yahoo news article above. A Texting competition? $50,000 prize money? Gimme a God damn break.
FOR THE LOVE OF "GOD", BLUR MUST MAKE U.S. TOUR DATES FOR THERE 2009 REUNION. BRITISH TOUR DATES ARE ALL WELL AND GOOD, AND IM REALLY HAPPY TO SEE VIDEOS OF THE GIGS, BUT I NEED TO SEE THEM LIVE! I HAVE SEEN MORRISSEY LIVE, AND NOW ALL I NEED TO DO IS SEE BLUR LIVE, TO DIE HAPPY
(ID LIKE TO SEE THE LIBERTINES LIVE TOO BUT..LETS TAKE IT 1 BAND AT A TIME).
We switched over from analog to digital tv, and on channel 25-2 is an odd, hypnotizing "show". It's actually a live feed on traffic cameras in Manhattan, complete with the time and location. Apparently, upon internet research, it was established by the NYC MTA to show people what the driving conditions ar elike throughout the city. Theres no talking, and no commercials, just live traffic camera feed. It's sorta weird, but then it turns into a hypnotic, calming, delightful way to pass out in front of my tv. Cheers NYC City Drive Live!
Television. The idiot box. It melts your brain, right? Well I suppose it might, on some molecular level, but I find it has a significant impact on my mental happiness, and I'm sure I'm not alone. This is going to sound a bit confusing, or perhaps pathetic, but hear me out. Television shows provide my life with an alternate reality with characters that I can identify with. After a long day of dealing with the world and its crashing dissapointments, and countless frustrating moments, I know that I can watch my favorite show and completely escape reality. Now i know that the majority of television programs are complete crap; reality shows, cop drama, talk shows, court room nonsense, but when you find a program that you can identify with, or are interested in, it can be really amazing. Certain shows provide me with a strange serenity, or calmness. Sitcoms and comedy programs with there classic absurd scenarios give me a sense of belonging in a weird universe that exists inside the picture tube. That sounded weird diddnt it? Well this isnt a college paper, and its not an advice column. I guess i find some sort of mental sanctuary in television and my favorite shows. It's like some characters take up space in my mind. Of course i do other activities; I paint, draw, skateboard, play soccer, hang out with my friends, go out drinking, see movies, go to Museums, sporting events, but on those evenings where I'm just tired or fed up with the brutality and loneliness of being alive, I like to escape life with the aid of my TV. I see nothing wrong with that.
I'm ill, and not in the dope gangsta way. My throat monster hurts pretty bad, so i went to the doctor. I have no insurance because im a 22 year old man, so i had to pay for the visit myself. Long story short the doctor thinks i have something called acute pharyngitis? I dont know, anyway, he gave me antibiotics to take for a week. What does that mean? It means for 7 or 8 days i cant smoke a fag or drink an adult beverage. Bollocks. So now i have more time in front of my laptop. I was sort of kicking around an idea of a Clownfarmer skate epic, documented on digicam. Another gay skate video? Yeah, pretty much. I thought i can create something clownworthy.
