Let Your Mind Grow Into the Ground

Somewhere between suburban boredom and rural desolation. The word isn't lazy, it's irresponsible.

lostspaceboy asked, "I play in a screamo/grind band. We've toured and we always do better out of state, but we really don't have a hometown scene and it sucks. Our shows are always empty, and its really discouraging and I feel like giving it up. No one gets it here"

selfdefensefamily:

That is a common issue, I was in a band that did much better everywhere else but our hometown. Eventually though if the rest of the country is feeling it your hometown will have to come around. If they don’t fuck em, kee touring and building your band elsewhere. While you are out seeing the world everyone else at home will be sitting around doing jack shit.

"Woke Up New" by The Mountain Goats
Get Lonely

basilsskite:

on the morning when I woke up without you for the first time,
I felt free.
and I felt lonely.
and I felt scared.
and I began to talk to myself almost immediately,
not being used to being the only person there.
hmmmm

the first time I made coffee for just myself,
I made too much of it.
but I drank it all,
just ‘cause you hate it when I let things go to waste.
and I wandered through the house, like a little boy lost at the mall.
and an astronaut could’ve seen the hunger in my eyes from space.

and I sang oh
what do I do?
what do I do without you?

on the morning when I woke up without you for the first time,
I was cold, so I put on a sweater.
and I turned up the heat.
and the walls began to close in
and I felt so sad and frightened,
I practically ran from the living room out into the street.

and the wind began to blow and all the trees began to bend.
and the world in its cold way started coming alive.
and I stood there like a businessman waiting for a train.
and I got ready for the future to arrive.

and I sang oh
what do I do?
what do I do without you?

The summer is almost over…

and god daaaaamn am I glad to see it go. It has surely been amongst the worse of my life, which really says something about how comparatively easy I have had it overall, but still. Our experiences are ours alone and if things are rough, things are rough.

I will be starting some new jobs this year: Substitute teaching at a new district and working part-time on a farm close by. The farm job combines teaching and animal/plant stuff, so that is going to be rad. I wanted to do this to put my self in a more positive place. I do not “hate everything” as I have often be accused of, I just dislike stupid people and their stupid people doings immensely, but focusing on this so much is truly unproductive. By working there, I hope to become the positive person I once was.

And since you apparently still follow me, I need to apologize…I don’t hope you are “not okay.” I hope you are well, and I miss you, but do not need you. The fall was our special time, and it will certainly be difficult without you, but we are both better off. I don’t know if we’ll ever speak to one another again, so if we don’t, know that I am okay, and that I hope you are too.

You love Family Guy. When in a new city you opt for Taco Bell over the local taco spot, no matter how highly it comes recommended, because you “like to know what you’re getting.” You wear $11 sunglasses. You think longboards are “fucking lame” but can’t explain why skating a shorter piece of wood is any less clowny. You engage in political arguments on Facebook.
