Subject:Dear Livejoural....Today I am a douche bag....
Time:12:01 pm
So here's a quick rundown of the past few months, since I've basically stopped using this thing regularly for lack of interest.


1. As Hope Fades is broken up. Don't cry for us, we're already dead. A new band is in the works though. It should involve "bringing the mosh" which I have my doctorate in. I didn't go to 6 years of scene school to be referred to as Mr. Mosh.

2. I got my Scion Xb, and it's incredible. I love my ugly car. If you see a camo green box on wheels in Willimantic, and it's blasting some sort of Swedish death metal, we probably just had a chance automotive encounter.

3. Speaking of driving, I was on my way through South Windsor today rollin' back from some hype-ass staff meetings, when the road split into two lanes. On my left a guy in a Dodge Durango decided to box me out and hang on my left side. In front of me, HUGE PUDDLE. To my right? Old (homeless?) lady in wheelchair slowly heading down the sidewalk. There was really nothing I could do that wouldn't have involved a car accident, and my car is too new to sacrifice for the dryness of the crippled. I also must have been going faster than I thought, because the ensuing deluge of me hitting that puddle completely wholloped that woman. When I looked in my rearview she had spun around to actually shake her fist at me. I can only imagine her loudly screaming incoherantly like the cat lady from the Simpsons.

At least before I unleashed a muddy tidal wave on her I had the decency to mutter that I was sorry. Quietly, not unlike when the mother let Macauly Culkin fall from the cliff, before rescuing a young Elijah Wood at the end of The Good Son.

So yeah, I'm a total douche. In other news, who else is buying DOOM 3 for XBox? Cuz I know I am, and we GOTSTA get some deathmatch going on.

Subject:Singer search update
Time:12:53 pm
BTW.

Auditions for a new As Hope Fades vocalist are still in full swing. If you are or know someone 21+ that can make practice every Sunday morning in Columbia (right near Willimantic/UConn area) and play a couple of gigs each month on weekends, then maybe you can try out! You also need reliable transportation, and a PA is always helpful.

Check out ASHOPEFADES.COM

and then Our MySpace site to download mp3s and see what you can come up with to them.

We're generally professional, easy going, and we loves the rock music.

Time:12:36 pm
It's my lunchbreak right now.

I'm drinking a Pepsi.
Panama by Van Halen just came on the radio.

Suddenly I feel as though I've been transported back to 1986. Or maybe more appropriately 1984.

Now Dr. Feelgood just came on. YES!


Editor's Note: Ben enjoys "The Crue".

Subject:The plot of Deepstar Six was more predictable than Leviathan
Time:12:53 pm
Just in case anyone who reads my journal thought I was dead or sucked into another dimension through a vortex behind a convenience store, I wasn't.
Things have been topsy-turvy lately, and I haven't had any desire or time to use internet stuff like LJ and/or MySpace.
So, if it's important enough to mention on the internet....

1. Xmas and New Year's were highly stressful, but looking back on them I still managed to have fun. Moreso on NY'sE than on the birthday of our lord and saviour Jesus Christ.

2. As Hope Fades is still on the search for a new singer. If you know any good, reliable ones that are 21+ then give me a holler. Especially if they like bands like Mastodon and Helmet.

3. Me and my girlfriend are moving in together this month, and I'm really excited about it. We should be closing on a townhouse in the next few days, which will rule if everything goes according to plan. It has 2 parking spaces (one for the Scion Xa, and another for the forthcoming Scion Xb).

4. My job is busy and I work long hours.

5. I'm hoping to have XBox Live be running and wireless by Feb. 5th. At that time I will most likely purchase Halo 2, Ghost Recon 2, and DOOM 3. I would like some of my friends who also have XBox live to contact me at that time. We can use headsets, for which to shout profanity at each other. Lloyd and Pat, I'm particularly looking in your directions.

So that's it. I'll probably end up posting a little more regularly once we're settled into the new place. Then again, maybe not.

"That's easy to resolve," Bush said. "People can buy more United States products if they're worried about the trade deficit."


Everything is easy for that man. It's because he's a genius.

Current Mood:awakeawake
Squidbillies? Two words. NOT FUNNY Or was it Squidbillies? Call me a purist, but I really don't enjoy when the Adult Swim writers are given free collaborative reign to just "do whatever" and it ends up being 30 minutes of clearly narcotic-fueled inside jokes.

I'm not saying I don't find weird things funny, good examples being ATHF, UCB, and even the newer Sealabs to a lesser extent. But this was just horribly boring and unamusing. I've seen funny anime parodies before, like THIS. So I know they exist.

OK, that's enough ranting about pointless crap for one Monday morning.
