"Nothing says you’ve truly lived life, like waking up in the morning and feeling like you’re gonna die."
Back in 2002 I was accepted to college for photography, something that I was really passionate about. When it came time to start picking courses I had a complete meltdown and decided to differed my acceptance. I never ended up by going back to school for what I was originally accepted for, and spent the better part of the next three years working at a camera shop, playing shows with my own band, and occasionally going on tour. It wasn’t until sometime in late July of 2005 that my life began to change. I had a relationship end and I realized that I was truly unhappy with myself and I was doing. I didn’t like who I was, so I decided to make some big changes; to go back to school, and to quit touring (unless it was with my band). I did one last tour, a quick sixteen day one, came home and started to get my life in order. I picked a graphic design course, was granted late acceptance, and started to move on with my life.
Now that I’ve had some time off to digest the seven plus weeks of hell that is warped tour, I’d have to say that I really enjoyed myself. It was a summer filled with shitty beer, good friends, and great times. I managed to get to four baseball games (three of which were new parks, including one AAA stadium), get a righteous farmer’s tan and even make a few friends. I do miss my summer family because they kept me sane, but I’m more than glad to be home now and that I don’t have to see any of their ugly faces every day.
This can not been un-seen. It’s also just the tip of the genius iceberg that is Flip Flop Fly Ball, and I strongly urge anyone who is a baseball fan to check it out.
If it was up to me, y’all would never have to leave …the sun is never comin’ up.
One of my favourite bars in the world. I know I had a good time when I don’t remember leaving, and I almost never do.
1- Go to wikipedia and hit random. The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
2 - Go to quotationspage.com and hit random. The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.
3 - Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”. Third picture no matter what……… it is, will be your album cover
4 - Use photoshop or similar (picnik.com is a free online photo editor) to put it all together.
