I want a Fender Hot Rod Deville now. And a Fender Thinline Telecaster.
News for March 2010
What happened to forgetting about it
What happened to not letting it bother me at all
What happened to being happy that the feeling is there at all
What happened to just living…
I don’t want to go back.
Song of the moment
Yellowcard – Down On My Head
Got this off of Sam Tan’s Tumblr. Isn’t it the greatest thing ever?
Loop and a Delay
A Boss Loop Station with a Line 6 DL4 provide for a winning combination. This is probably one of the most amazing things I have ever seen and heard when it comes to using the looper from Boss. I am almost tempted to buy one now.
Edit: Interesting, he may have done it all through the DL4 and not through another loop pedal.
Not like I used to
I can’t sleep.
I used to be able to rest my head and pass out instantly since January, but lately I’ve been lying in bed trying to clear everything out of my head and just trying to get some rest. I kid you not, once a night owl always a night owl.
I guess there’s just too much thinking going on lately. I’m terrible at making decisions and stressing out about it. I’ve got until the end of the month to finalize my travel plans, assess my options for a potential school term in the summer and just hope I have enough time to do everything I want before the fall. I also think too much about people… how they are, what they’re thinking of right now, and are they thinking about me or ‘am I just wasting my time.’
Here’s hoping I fall asleep within the next half hour or else I’m looking at an awesome day at work in the morning.
Totally digging this song right now. Matt Costa, you are the man.
I took the long way home from work tonight. There’s something awesome about just driving along the streets at night that just makes it easier to think clearly for once. With all the things that go on in life, I just need to be in a place where I can just think and not worry about what’s going on in front of me.
In this case, sort of.
Tonight’s drive made me think about the future and what I need to do, because I’ve got so many decisions to make for the summer. Do I partake in a spiritual journey to Fiji for a month? Do I hit up California with the old boys and geek out at Comic con? Or do I sacrifice it all just so I can make a few more extra dollars by doing a second term of co-op? It’s just one of those things that make you wish you had it all, but in the end one has to give. I’m almost graduating from school – scary thought – and I just feel like this is going to be my last chance at doing something incredible before I go off into the so called ‘real world’ – what is that really?
I want to go somewhere that will allow me to better myself spiritually, connect with my God and maybe make an impact on people I have yet to meet. I want to have fun with friends and enjoy whatever is left of my youth. I want to make money and be sure that when I finally realize this ‘real world’ I’ll be able to approach it head on without worrying about putting food on the table. Maybe I’m just making this summer to be something that it really isn’t, but I realize that this might truly be the last true summer I’ll ever have.
I’ll look back on what I wrote tonight and regret everything, because I’m in a state of fatigue – and I should never be writing when I’m completely spaced out. But even if nothing was resolved tonight, at least I got to enjoy some time to myself and for once, not caring about the moment.
Quick random thoughts, free of the excess that would otherwise take up an entire blog post for each one:
1) Olympics are over, and I am sad. But I do not regret, I had fun and for the most part did what I wanted to do during the festivities.
2) Team Canada may have won gold, but I still prefer a Stanley Cup parade in Vancouver.
3) Now that I know how you feel, would you wait for me?
4) Writing songs is hard. Deadline in April coming up fast.
5) Twitter is addictive. Please join so more people may experience more of Matt.
6) Work sucks, I know. But at least I get paid.
7) Fiji in July? Would it benefit me spiritually? Would I be allowed to come?
eight) And furthermore, if I were to be offered it, would a second term of co-op be worth it?
9) These pictures won’t upload themselves.
10) More ‘beholding,’ less day dreaming.
11) Vox AC30 or a Bogner Ecstasy? Combo amp or cool half stack?
12) I have yet to venture into the art of cooking. Who’s up for helping me out?
13) Sleep is the enemy.
14) March already. Darn.
15) The Fray – Happiness.
