I haven't update since before I left for the Mongoloids/Energy tour. Not much has really happened, we played the shows, some were good some were bad. It was a tour. It was nice to finally tour with them because we've known them for a little while, but it just never happened for one reason or another. I want to go into detail about it, but I feel it would just be boring.

We got home this past morning at like 5:30am and I didn't get to sleep until like 6:30am. Somehow around 9:45 my body tells me it's time to wake up. It is now 11:11pm, and I'm still not tired. Julia came over around 12 I think, and she got me Town Spa. She's staying over tonight.

I wanted to head to Mike's to work on the new song some more, but I know that if I head over there I'll get tired so fuck it.

I really only get internet access a handful of times on tour, and when I do, I'm not really in the mental state to make blog entries. It's not an excuse, because I could just type it out on my Sidekick in the van, and post it all later, but that's one of the reasons behind my lack of updates.

I think I have to pick Eric up tomorrow at some point which is going to suck because it's Memorial Day, and everyone goes to Cape Cod on Memorial Day, so I'm probably going to get stuck in terrible traffic. I'll just try to go really late so that hopefully I miss it.

My life is pretty uneventful. I like being home because almost immediately upon arrival, I feel the urge to write and record. That urge never strikes me on tour. MAYBE once in a blue moon, but not usually.

We leave Thursday for our tour with The Wonder Years. I'm happy that that's happening for a handful of reasons. One of the reasons is because Josh and Julia are coming, and that is just going to make me extremely happy. The other is that the tour is with a band that isn't a hardcore band. I don't want to get into a rant right now, but I'll just say that lately I've been really fixated on the idea of playing shows other than hardcore shows. I love a lot of older hardcore bands, but that's irrelevant really (as far as where Energy fits in). The percentage of shows we play that are hardcore shows should somewhat match the percentage of which our sound falls under the genre. For example: Let's say we all believe that our sound is 25 percent hardcore/75 percent other influences, that would mean that ideally, we would only do hardcore shows 25 percent of the time. The others would be oh, I don't know...any of the dozens of other sub-genres of "rock" that exist in the underground music scene. I talked to everyone about this last night at the show and everyone is on the same page so this isn't JUST me ranting uncontrollably, it's more or less me recapping a discussion had last night during the drive home. Sick actually IM'd me during the ride home and we talked about the same thing. He agrees 100 percent. I didn't even bring it up either, he IM'd me to talk to me about it. Generally when that happens, I know it's not just me over analyzing, or over exaggerating a situation or topic, and that it's actually justified. Well, it looks like I ended up ranting a little anyway, oh well. I'll end the rant that I didn't want to get into on a positive note by saying that I am really looking forward to our upcoming tour with The Wonder Years...despite still having never heard them.

Even though our show last night sucked for the most part, I've been in a fairly good mood since we played. We maintained steady conversation on the drive home, and I haven't been annoyed TOO badly by anything since I entered Stoughton. Hopefully it stays that way.

I have to hang out with Matt at least a few times before Thursday because after that he's moving out west for a while, and possibly to Africa to work with the Earthship people for a while. He said it could be for only a month, but it could also end up being longer.

I have recently decided to start collecting movies on my computer. Preferably .avi files. I have them all alphabetically organized with artwork. Right now I have 36 movies, 10 or so comedy videos, a handful of documentaries and music videos, and some TV shows = 41.47 GB. I plan on getting a Terabyte (1,000 GB) Hard Drive and eventually storing them all on there. I would also like to get the necessary wires to play these movies on my TV straight from my MacBook, but of course money stands in the way of all this.

I am currently getting the Jurassic Park trilogy which I'm very excited about. I have a list of "Movies to get" which I'm constantly adding to, so if you are reading this and can think of any other "must-have" movies that I don't have on these lists, please leave a comment with your suggestion(s).
