Stop complaining. You live in a country where you can go to sleep and wake up, and nothing at all will have happened in your life. You won't be bombed, you won't be terrorized, etc. Get over yourselves. If you're reading this, be happy that your life isn't a lot fucking worse. Current Mood: sleepy

|Cool meme that I made up.
I have been thinking about this a long time, so I figured it was time to put digital pen to paper.
List 5 events that were absolutely random occurrances, but had life-changing effects, and why.
1. While thinking about joining a fraternity, running into Brett at 3am in the middle of campus, the night after he was initiated into DSP. We had spent all of freshman year hating on fraternities, and he told me to come over and check it out. I did, and joined.
2. Being a dork and going to Origins 99, where I met the people who would become the BoJ crew, and Chris and Jenny, who have become close friends and allies in the battle against the evil entertainment empire. Had I not joined the tournament team I did, or not shown up the 2nd day, the next 2-3 years of my life would have been incredibly different.
3. At CSUN, rooming with Sean and making the Ghostbusters connection. If my roommate had sucked I never would have seen much of Los Angeles and certainly not much of Connecticut. Lots of good times.
4. Avoiding crashing the truck on the way back from Milwaukee, in summer 03. Scariest experience of my life. If Chad was driving, or I had not been able to control the car, I wouldn't be here today. Kind of put things in perspective for me.
5. On an absolute whim, signing up for bartending classes, then finding out I was fired from my previous job. Bartending turned out to pretty much be my only work during college, and it definitely changed my personality and introduced me to many awesome and interesting people.
So thats a wrap in 15 minutes I guess. I might come back and edit these, but looking at my track record, prolly not. I wonder, do other people have the same experiences, where they can attribute an entire part of their lives down to one random event? I look back and smile at it, smile at knowing that I am pleased how fate worked out for me.
You're welcome to pick this one up for yourself, I dunno how many people it applies to, really.
Enough sentimentality from me, I was born to rock.
Funny how things work out. Current Mood: nostalgic

Republicans are for:
removing womens' rights.
removing minority rights.
against funding education.
catering to corporate interests.
eliminating social programs.
Shrinking the separation of church and state.
And a lot of other shit.
* * * * *
Democrats are for nothing, but I'll still vote for them because I hate republican values.
America is fat, lazy, uneducated and stagnant. Every single industry we have created, with the exception of defense, has been shopped out somewhere else in the world. Global corporations have more sway over the American people than the people do over themselves. Any last vestiges of American culture are ground down into pop culture crap. Television has become the "idiot box" that parents of the 80s warned their kids not to watch too much of. The "too cool" apathy of America has finally grown up and now the whole goddamn country is like that fat fucking bitch in florida who didn't get off her couch for 5 years and her skin fused to the couch and she just shit on herself and ate easy cheese all the time and then died cuz the paramedics couldn't help her I don't want to live in this kind of a country. Much less that kind of state. Or city. Or town. Or street. Or house. None of it.
I am against lowering the common denominator of the American people. The Republican Party has spent 4 years working hard to do that.
They can go fuck themselves.

|And so it begins. . . MORTAL KOMBAT!
The fun and games end here.
Tomorrow, I venture to the land of the Catholics, to smack their little asses into teaching me some law.
I hope all the shit that Myricks taught me comes in handy, I am gonna fuck these kiddies up.
Come get some, biatch.
I had a pretty good summer. Went to Los Angeles for a week, chilled with all my people there. Started recording an album. Rented a house. Bought a sexy new bed. Watched too much TV. Read a lot of books. Played some poker, and a little wiffleball.
All in all, a good summer. I wish I had more time though. But for now, its time to get in the boats and get ready to storm the beach. Tomorrow is D-Day.

|Pacific Standard Time
Woo going to L.A. on saturday for 10 days. Should be excellent, get to hang with my old friends out there, and some new arrivals too. Looking forward to Sunset, DuPar's, Colorado Blvd, QM, HB, and maybe some studio audience fun. Should be a freaking awesome time.
Band is going into the studio tomorrow to lay tracks for when I get back, life is good.
EDIT: Oh yeah, I am also gonna see some awesome hot bitches make the olympic team. Then I'm going to fuck them. All of them. AWESOME. Go me.
And so am I.
And just so you know, Fuck Tha Police is a Public Enemy song.
And now, a quick aside:
Recycle my nuts in your mouth, bitch. If you want to know why you have no friends, its because you ditched all of them like a two-cent whore. Hope you have as much fun as I do. You know who you are.
With that having been said.
I'll be west coast chillin, cali-forn-i-a. gimme love.

|Murphy's Oil Soap
So yeah, this was a ridiculous weekend.
Was on the radio sunday night, getting interviewed about our Noise in the Basement show. The radio station was fun as hell, as soon as Jay and Hans figured out how to get there. When we get a van, I am gonna be the only one driving, period.
So we bullshit with the DJ for a while, and he asks us where our name is from and we won't tell him. So he gets all annoyed and I'm just like "its Charlie Murphy." Of course he doesn't know who Charlie Murphy is, so I have to explain: "The guy that Rick James slapped around." I think he got pissed at us because he didn't talk to us at all at the show, but whatever, it was fucking hilarious.
So monday night we roll up to the show, the first band almost didn't make it because of traffic, but everything is smooth. All 4 of the bands used my drumset, which is probably now completely toast. Ah well.
We hung out with Underscore, those guys are fuckin sick. Def a great time, they put on a great show.
So we closed it out and blew a lot of people away. Good times.
Thanks to everyone who came out, took pictures, got friends to come, and generally helped us have a fucking great monday night.

hey, I need everybody's help for this one.
Our band is up for a wildcard slot for the UMD Battle of the Bands, if we win we compete against 4 other bands to play in the stadium, opening for a national recording artist!
This would be a huge thing for us, so take a sec and go to: http://www.see.umd.edu
and vote for MURPHY'S STIGMA.
Thanks for the help, if we win I will VIP all your asses ;)

A quick hit list:
Didn't win Battle of the Bands, that shit is rigged for sure.
Got a new demo out, but our website crashed.
1-1 in law school apps.
Got a battle fish:
| Uno |
Uno was won on Ebay
Um, dunno what else. My mom won't return my phone calls, which is weird.
I'm being a bum, but a busy one, I don't have enough time to be drunk and stupid. Boo.
Thats enough for now, I will rock more out later.

|verizon sucks my dick and the internet licks my balls.
So thanks to jizz kitty beating up our phone, plus shitty outside lines, plus the fact that i live in an ass old house, we have no phone or internet service. I will be spending the next week or so watching shitty movies on HBO and going through internet withdrawal. I would probably kill a man to play some Battlefield right now. Fuck it.
Oh and I fucked my car up.
And my band has a new demo.
And its awesome.
Ethan, annoyed. Current Mood: blah

|cum laude? you bet.
So I'm done. I guess I'm happy, but I'm sad to be done. College has definitely been the best time of my life. Fortunately I'm not leaving just yet. I am enjoying chillin at the house next semester, where I will be drinking and...drinking. Good times.
So, here is what I learned in college:
Classes are a waste of time.
I am smarter than approximately half the professors I've had. The other half have been exceptional.
The dining hall only rocks when its free.
Alcohol is man's best friend.
And many more things, but its late and i'm tired. I will have more to say soon, I'm sure. Current Mood: accomplished

|jus straight chillin, ya heard
Yeah, so now that LSATs are over I am recovering into senioritis quite nicely. I'm blowing all my money on worthless crap, skipping classes, and generally fucking around.
I'm going camping this weekend.
I got real pissed today in class cuz a prof asked me to put my newspaper away. Its a 200 person lecture, you can F off. On top of that the dude has the nerve to bring his fucking dog to class. Who brings a dog to class. So we are getting a dog whistle and some milk bones to fuck with it.
Battle of the Bands is next tuesday, we are gonna try to do some cool shit cuz its right before halloween. We'll see.
I generally haven't been feeling like posting cuz for the most part, I am not whacked out. I don't really have much to say because life is just goin along ok. I mean, I guess there is the question of law school vs. music, but that will come in time. I think I will have a hard time walking away from the drumset, and I don't know exactly what I'm gonna do about it. I guess I have stars in my eyes, I dunno. I want to be a rockstar ;)
I lost a friend last week cuz she is has feelings for me. Her loss, the biatch. Anyway.
All I ever talk about is sex, violence and rock n roll. Is that a bad thing? I haven't decided. I think Los Angeles is calling me back by making me shallow. Or I'm just too tired for deep conversation. Maybe I just don't care or I'm lazy. Ok, back to being whacked out. Hello LJ.
Well whatever is happening, I am having a hell of a good time living in the house. People are cool and actually want to do more than just sit in their rooms and get wasted. So life is good, I think.
I am Jack's alcoholic mindset.
I am also hungry, so I'm out.
Oh yeah, and I'm gonna start l5r again...maybe. I am such a looooooooooooooooooooser.

|Something worthy of an update.
I took the LSAT today, thats why you haven't seen SHIT from me on here. No time. Now I have lots of time, to do the following things:
1. GET WASTED
2. finish college
3. hang out
6. play drums
7. play drums until my arms fall off
8. GET WASTED
9. commit various crimes, of varying degree, that may or may not result in me being fined, imprisoned, or just losing my sanity.
yeah, so I am done. It feels good. I've kind of rearranged my life so that I can do what I want, and I like it.
School is gonna be a cakewalk from here on in, I think. Just a few busy days this week, and I am chillin til finals.
Let us commence with the rock and roll, the drinking, and everything else that comes with the good life.
Oh, and Roy from Siegfried and Roy got mauled by a tiger.
The soul still burns..... Current Mood: accomplished

|WE ARE BARBEQUEING!!!
I guess I should update, its been a while. My last semester is coming up, I have spent the summer working my ass off, and hopefully things will be good.
I plan to be very drunk this semester, get laid a lot, get a 4.0 and do some bullshit that will add some bullet points to my resume. I also plan to get a recording contract and a 180 on my LSATs.
Maybe I'll win the world series of poker too. What the hell.
So I've spent the summer working at a law office as a file clerk. I basically bust my ass so other people can do real work, and sometimes I also do real work. Rarely though. I work with Meredith, which is pretty cool cuz we just goof off and nothing gets done. Our attorney is a bad ass, but she has definitely shown me that family law SUCKS A BIG DICK.
I'm gonna get paid millions to write contracts. Life will be good.
If that doesn't work out, I'm working hard as hell on the band thing, we have a bunch of new songs and some good shows lined up, hopefully we can start to punch through onto the scene. I am looking forward to it.
I am definitely not ready to grow up. This summer has shown me that while I have the capacity to live like an adult, I don't like it. I want to be a bum of a college student, get drunk and fuck around and hang out with my fraternity brothers. Maybe go to class too. Live the good life. Respect the music. That sort of thing.
We'll see how much I can pull off.
Saw Metallica perform a couple weeks ago. They destroyed the place. Soooo good.
I miss california. Its nice there, except for flaky people and earthquakes. I will make a triumphant return to the City of Angels. You'll see.
Live the dream.

|What's another word for pirate treasure???
Your pirate name is:
Dread Pirate Vane
Like the famous Dread Pirate Roberts, you have a keen head for how to make a profit. You tend to blend into the background occaisionally, but that's okay, because it's much easier to sneak up on people and disembowel them that way. Arr!
A pirate's life for me! On a sunday afternoon.
