Amen man. And fuck, the thought of never seeing Horse perform live just crushes me. Lately I've been thinking that they'll never doing anything in the US again and the only way I'll see them is if they do something local and I commute halfway across the country for it.

Actually, I'm fairly certain they would be happy to play shows as long as it does not cost them money. If you can arrange a tour or show where they can at least break even, I think your chances are pretty good. It requires some dedication and skill, for sure, but even I am considering trying it if I don't strike it rich and get desperate.

The only thing that keeps me going is the (possibly false) hope that I will have a career waiting for me once I'm done with school. If it weren't for that, I'd feel pretty damn hopeless too.

Reading about the DDP and watching the video's is something that always cheers me up, with a tear in my eye.
I just watching them and reading about them makes me happy, I wonder what it would do to actually be at one.

You could always try something like that, forestyo.

I'm pretty happy with my life even though I'm alone and working paycheck to paycheck to live in a shitty tiny studio apartment. I'm not in school so I'm not really "working" towards anything career-wise...but it doesn't bother me anymore the way it used to. I don't know what the fuck I'm doing with my life, but I'm ok with it.

nothing in my life seems as important when you see someone else's slowly being taken away. my friend has been suffering from stomach ulcers, and has decided to stop taking his medications. it's such a conflicting feeling to want their suffering to end, yet not wanting them to go.

I know how you feel somewhat... I am no longer speaking to anyone in my family. It is super hard, we were the closest family I knew growing up. My brother is tweaking again and he has two kids. He wrote on my facebook telling me to start using oxy again so he can have his brother back. All of my family wanted me to get better and now I realize how sick they are and I can't talk to any of my siblings and rarely talk to my parents. They are all slowly but surely killing themselves or going to end up in jail. It kills me but staying away from them is the best thing I can do. I just hope they see how well I am doing and jump on board.

I love life. I had 5 months clean on the 24th.

I'm so sorry about your family but at the same time, I'm really happy about your 5 months.

Keep going, man.

Good luck!

that's how it is with most of the good friends I had in high school. they've either gone to drugs, or they fucked up and got some girl pregnant that is just going to ruin their lives further. I have a sister that fucks around with meth and is with a new guy every month, and then she wonders why I don't want to be around her. I don't know if it's my ego talking, but i just can't relate with people like that. Maybe I'm being selfish. I should force myself to face these uncomfortable moments head on, or risk losing those I care about.

Sometimes I think about giving up everything I own, and becoming a transient. There's a number 12 lyric that has stuck with me, and it seems like a good ideal to base my life on. "To feed his family caused someone else to be taken from theirs." If I have nothing, someone, somewhere, will be given everything. If I am unhealthy and suffering, someone will be having an amazing time. But who the fuck knows? Fuckin' lif.

I'll end this rant on a good note: Thanks for understanding my current situation, Kevin, and the best of luck to you with yours. Here's hoping for some new HtheB.

IMO, they're a better ways, Tical. After all, it's the rich who can give the most to the poor.
I doubt the universe balances out in such a direct way as the one you described.
Anyway, I doubt you being a useless, miserable hobo is going to help anyone. A usefull hobo, however, may help some.

I suppose it's a good thing for the prolonged existence of our world that none of us have the power of a million exploding suns.

Because people would eat rocks and breathe wind, and go around the world and back again. Then, they'd lose their static. And their grey, she is gone!

Because they would both explode.

I had a fun weekend, but the board ate my post, so I won't go into details but...

I played music.
I went to a political congress.
I scared some girls, some intentionally, and some unintentionally.
Had quite some beers, some of them around some campfires.
And 2 hours ago my love woke me up for dinner.

I can feel dead and alive at the same time.

Somehow I missed this bit reading Nathan's interview the first time. It's pretty disheartnening:
"I think the other members have completely moved on from music or at least have no interest in back tracking."

On a more personal level lately I've been coming to the realization that I've lost interest in my major course of study (engineering) though I'm half way through it and I really don't know what else I would want to do. So I guess I'll suck it up and stick with it. On a positive note, lately music has been hitting me in a way that hasn't in months. It's exciting to be really moved by music again.

I'll forever view Nathan and HTB as huge inspirations in my life. It's sad that they may be no more.

No I don't think it's a troll post haha, but idk, after reading that bit my expectations are that they'll keep leisurely playing shows every once and a while like they're doing now, but my hopes for new album or albums are pretty much entirely gone. Idk though, the way horse is I feel like they could do something unpredictable.

EDIT: and not that them leisurely doin stuff is a bad thing, I'm glad they're still doing things, though I just always had this hope that they'd return in full force, and the interview read like Nathan was sort of skeptical of that happening.

Yesterday I had what is now one of my top 10 moments with my love.
We danced to I Think We Are Both Suffering From The Same Crushing Metaphysical Crisis.

I just got back from Warped Tour. Holy shit. Music is becoming such a pile of shit. I believe quote from Horse was something along the lines of "I scream when I'm angry but I sing when I'm emotional." Every other fucking band that played followed this archetype.

played a terrible show in Jacksonville the other night. pretty much zero turnout outside of the other bands that were playing. shitty promoters and venue owners. my string broke at the beginning of the last song and it sounded like ass.

still had fun

here's a video of our first two songs. i'm really happy with the second one. http://youtu.be/xRPZLF66WVM

pretty decent quality for an iphone but of course sounds much better in person xD. i had fun. i kinda wish my bandmates would move around a little bit more. besides me and the vocalist, the others are so statuesque and emotionless looking hahaha. oftentimes i'm more concerned about spazzing out than i am playing my parts with precision

So I am over 6 months clean... and shit starts to fall apart for everyone around me...

My father has begun drinking again. His liver quit working over 3 years ago, he is turning into the monster he was before that happened. He got a motorcycle this summer and I had to pretty much almost fight him for his keys the other day. He has tipped it over twice. I am terrified of him crashing and he has decided to stop wearing a helmet now.

My little brother has been using meth and I have only spoken to him probably 3 times in the last 7 months. We were so close growing up it wasn't even funny. It is killing me.

My grandfather has really gone down hill in the last 6 months. They couldn't figure out what was wrong with him until recently they diagnosed him with Parkinson's. I have not spoke with him since the day before I went into treatment but I am going to be going to see him as soon as they get back from the lake cabin. He won't go to a old person's home and my grandma is an alcoholic just like my mother and she get's so drunk she cant even take care of him. They have so much money and could have done anything, it just goes to show that money doesnt make you happy.


TL;DR My grandpa is dying soon and he is the man who gave me all the manners I have. I used to go to the lakes with him every single weekend growing up. My dad is drinking and my brother is vanishing. LIF

That is fucked up. My shit pales in comparison. Keep us posted.

Oh, my shit?

Well, my sister in Equador is still not accepted by her inlaws, and that goes for her eldest son as well. Kid got so jealous, he threw a cup of hot tea over his baby brother, burning the entire leg. She and her husband are getting their own place soon though.

My sister in Deutschland is currently "in pschychiatrics" for the second time, diagnosed with borderline, doing a 10-week trauma therapy, something to do with abuse and uncertainty in her childhood. Some of it has to do with my dad, cause he wasn't around enough for her.
And I always thought she was the "one who got away".

Talked with my father last night. He had not been to my mothers where he has been drinking in like 2 days. He sounded fine. Wake up to a text from my sister saying my dad is at my mom's drinking at 9 am. I sent him a text telling him to come pick up his truck and that I do not want him in my life if he is going to continue drinking. He didn't respond. I think it shocked him because he left my mom's immediately. I will wait to see if he calls me soon.
