City and Colour

Dallas Green put on a great show Saturday Night. For some reason his music just hits me right to the core. Maybe I'm just bummed about my physical health, getting old, never figuring out life ect. But pretty much all of his set hit the spot with me. The whole night was almost perfect. I picked up a friend of mine who unfortunately is even more bummed out (a friend of her's thinks that she's possessed, but I'm going into any religious debate.) The CNE, Molson Canadian Amphitheatre, the hotel indigo, lunch at Mr. Greek.

I've come to the realization that over the last year I just hate a lot of things about my living situation and you could even expand it to the area in general. Right now I don't know what I'm going to do or even how my quality of life is going to be. All I know is I just want to have fun now and forget about tomorrow.

Fashion Mistake

So I realized today after it was too late that I projected the wrong image by the clothes I put on this morning. Basically I wore a plain white T-Shirt since it was clean & topped it off with a Black Chicago White Sox Hat. Needless to say for some odd reason I felt out of place out in the Burbs in the morning and when I was walking and driving around the city later on in the afternoon I felt even more out of place. Basically I my clothes on many teenage boys on random street corners. The topping was when a group of African-American men in a Cadillac SUV were laughing at me was I crossed in front on them at a stoplight. Usually it would happen organically, but today I knew exactly what they were focused on.

Old Emails

I was cleaning out my gmail account when I realized that years ago I received some interesting monumental text messages that I had forwarded myself to save. All I can say is good thing that i did, as there were some insightful things in there.

The best ones are the old pics from the Cont. All I can say is I realize now why people do porn, it's to immortalize their youth. Needless to say I am pretty happy that I took some pics from the old fetish nights ;-)

People of Canal Fest

Yea, we have all seen and laughed at the people of Wal*Mart

But is Western New York really that much more sophisticaled than the South where most of the photos from the Wal Mart Blog came from?

Yea, you go NT/Tonawanda!

Someone in B-Lo may own Facebook?

If this turns out true this would be crazy!

Anyway Zuckerberg is a total Douche, it would be cool to see Karma catch up with him. After all to him we're just the "Dumb Fucks" that give him Billions...

Concert Roadtrip Vlog

I was sorting out all of the vids that I never posted on iMovie/iPhoto and stitched this one together. This is from March when I went to see Silversun Pickups and Muse at the Palace of Auburn Hills. So this is an idea of what going to Michigan was like for me to see a concert last week. I decided to post it since it doesn't seem half bad for a vlog, although I had to cut it down to get under 10 minutes.

Smashing Pumpkins

I never saw Billy Corgan "back in the day," So when I had an opportunity to grab pre-sales for a week where I already had off I grabbed them. I'm totally glad that I did as it totally worked out even with having a pretty existential week and all. I was lucky enough to get a hotel through hotwire right across the street from the venue.

The building itself was a pretty interesting venue to say the least. My mind just races as to what it was previously, I just have to guess that it was a one or two plex movie theater at one point in time. Anyway the people in Grand Rapids are just really friendly and cool. This guy and his friends took me into their group and midway through the took me upstairs which was pretty sweet.

Anyway here is the setlist which totally worked and rocked as his new band sounds pretty good.

Here are a few pics

Crowd Shot!
I want to be a professional Photog like this woman!


I did get to hang with the opener Kill Hannah before they walked next door to the stripclub.

For some reason this old Cure song has popped back into my head. I was just thinking about concerts and if the possibility arose where I could time travel to see a show from the recent past what tour would I see? I think for me it would be the Disintegration Tour in '89. Maybe it's because I caught the tour for Wish and felt as if I was missing something.

In other news my manager passed away at work which really just slapped me emotionally inside the only way a death of someone way too young can do to you. I'm just glad that I had this week booked off since for some F'd up reason I need to get my head straight due to the universe smacking me across the face to make my numb on the inside as it seems to frequently do.

I have to ask, "Why does it seem as if I have this dark cloud" stalking me once in a while? F**K! I want to know, Is it possible to make lemon aid out of this Freakin' Lemon?

  • Linnie 10/17 06:57 Hi Neighbors - I just bought a groovy renovated carriage house on Linwood Ave, and I'm so excited to live in our wonderful city! The large house in front of the carriage house burned down in the 70's. An article I found about the property cited that 'Matthew' on this site had posted a series of photos called 'Lost Linwood" (article was from 2012). I thought maybe Matthew was still on this site or perhaps someone could help me find the photos. I'd love to see the original house and carriage house
  • joe 09/12 01:54 well maybe the fall and setting up my computer again will get me to post regularly
