It’s positive

Class today, results are in. Looking at the results, I realized that I bombed my midterm.

But I didn’t care.

Things are looking up. My birthday just went by, but I think things are starting to go in the direction that I want, even though flunking a test worth a sizable chunk of my class grade would suggest otherwise.

I was reading this article earlier this week regarding the recently announcement that Blink 182 was reuniting. Unlike James, I never really moved on. I grew up listening to these guys. After they went on ‘haitus’ things weren’t ever the same. I tried indie. I tried electronica. Soft rock. It never really replaced the magic that I felt in high school. That’s not to suggest I ran into absolute crap since then – Coldplay and The Subways, great bands – but when something is gone that had a big influence on how you lived, how you reacted to the world, it’s a void that never really closes itself.

Maybe I’m just a jaded punk rock guy, missing the days where punk and punk-pop bands took the scene by storm. Say what you will about the quality of music back then, but it had to be better than the Jonas Brothers. I don’t think I need to elaborate on why this news has me excited.

OK, no more Blink posts for now.

Musically it’s been orgasmic over here. The new The Fray album that dropped is amazing. Listen to ‘Happiness,’ it’s got some chill vibe going off in there. Asher Roth’s ‘I Love College’ single is the craziest thing I’ve heard in a while, even though I’m no frat boy. Sifting through old albums, I’ve rediscovered why the Beastie Boys are as dope as they are.

I can sleep easily again.

Glad, your Blink 182 is reuniting. Its been a while since i’ve heard them. Anywhos, The NEW FRAY ALBUM ALREADY?! I need to listen to them. But Nothing moves me more than DCC and TAI. Except DCC’s music lately haven’t been that great but still worth in buying their CDs and their songs on itunes.

I flunked my finance midterm last semester… I bounced back with a C+ and I and was satisfied! Good to know you can sleep easy again! I’ve been listening to The Fray’s album all week. To school, from school, on breaks… I don’t like the Jonas Brothers at all! lols… Old school is the way to go Matt!
