i didn't mind it for florida. 2-1-1 on a road trip that saw us blowout anaheim (hi jer!) lose a close one to LA, beat San Jose handidly, and then come back with 2 goals in 12 seconds in the final minute of the third to salvage a point against Nashville. We're definitely not a basement team and that is perfectly fine for me,

+ was offered an amazing job at one of my favourite vegan spots in canada
-/+ it is located in st. catharines, about an hour and a half outside of toronto, in the niagra falls region.
+ moving there means i'd get to live in a huge house with my partner and another rad person, and i'd be paying $900 less a month than i am making now
- i do actually love living in toronto, and would miss it a lot. st catharines is rad, but it doesn't compare to this city.

-/+ now that i have basically made up my mind to move, and have been looking work for almost a month, i have been offered two jobs today... the day i made up my mind. UGH

- fuck fuckFUCK my car just died, ontop of the wave of negative happenings this is just so un-needed. i know my car is old, i bought it with hard earned money when i was 15 and have had it for 11 years now, but i just needed it to get me through the winter... now, even if it is fixable, i won't have the money to fix it, nor is it valuable enough to fix in monetary terms. bad things always happen in piles, and i always forget that, or maybe just try to will it not to. fuck.

- this job hunt is incredibly stressful and, so far, fruitless. i am really strapped and am, at this point, hoping for anything just so i can get my feet under me.

+ playing music again for the first time in years has been a real positive, and i've been doing it with my partner which has been really cool. we finished our first three songs, which is about 30min of music, and are gonna keep working on them til she is confidant enough to play a show. this could be fun!

- was let go from a job i loved, without cause nor reason. laws in ontario state that within the first 3 months of working, the proprietor doesn't need a reason to let someone go. just that happened, even though as early as 5 days prior the owners told me how happy they were to have me there. it sucks, puts me in a precarious position financially, and sets me back in a time when i was focusing really hard on getting my mental health in order.

+ i have been playing music again recently after four-ish years of not doing so. it is weird, but it has been really positive to be playing as i work on figuring out what space in my life music can healthfully take up. we've been playing for a few months and the band is called "vile creature," it is kinda blackened doom metal-ish and i really enjoy what we have been writing,

i have no idea how to make friends... i used okcupid for a while, which seemed to work alright, but the dating overtones from every meet up, even if it was explicitly discussed as NOT a date, threw me for a spin each time.

right now i am volunteer cooking at a community bike shop here in toronto called bike pirates on sundays, and have met some really rad folks who maybe one day will wanna hang with me as friends.

otherwise i have a ton of friends, they're called "books" and they are mostly my besties.
brett, did you check out you're next? it was so nice to see a slasher film in the 90s style come out recently and not be totally awful... even though i enjoy totally awful slashers.
General / Re: What other websites do you frequent?

my internet consumption has taken a nose dive in the last year or so... other than checking in here every so often, i read a couple hockey websites (tsn, puckdaddy, and some random florida panthers sites,) and that is about it. it is such a change from always being online throughout my teens/early twenties... i think i am on my computer maybe thirty minutes a day now.

+ thou's record heathen has kind of defined every positive and negative moment ive had this year. it is making me feel really important things when i am sad to help me feel better, and it is making me appreciate how great things are when i am doing well. fuck i missed loving music.

the hold steady - teeth dreams
thou - heathen
yob - clearing the path to ascend
fucked up - glass boys
bloodpheasant - traum
alaskan - despair, erosion, loss
agalloch - the serpent and the sphere
pallbearer - foundations of burden

these have been my 2014 jams so far. especially the new thou record, its intense.
too drunk to find the drunk thread. the new pix board story.

yeah, people are awful. luckily i no longer work where i did so i don't park my bike there anymore, and truly don't go to that part of town ever. i got the bike fixed and it looks / rides great... unfortunately it cost a lot, but i am happy to have it back.

- today someone destroyed my bike (snapped the handlebars, bent the fork, broke the wheel, bent the frame, brakes, etc. its like they drove into it repeatedly with a scooter or took a bat to it.) they also left a note on my bike that read "fagot." they couldn't even put the second g in.

Title pretty much says it all. I don't know what I'm doing but I think it would be fun. Advice on getting it started and equipment I need would help a lot!

there is a lot that goes into it. are you doing it digital only? cds? tapes? vinyl? figure out what you want to do, then look around to see how much they cost to get made. typically tapes and cds are pretty cheap, but you're still looking at hundreds of dollars per release. you can always do the uber-punx label and burn cd-r's and make packaging... some people really value those, but don't expect to sell a lot as, in my experience, people tend to want something a bit more substantial if they are going to spend money on it... otherwise they can just download it for free?

just make sure you are doing it for, as you said, fun, and don't expect to ever make a dime on it... more importantly, be okay with treating it like a cigarette habit. it will cost you a lot more than you think, and eventually you should probably quit it, but you'll probably enjoy it for a while.

thanks y'all! yeah my clicker is industrial strength, but i am slowly saving up for something from bvla.

bvla stuff is gorgeous but is so damn expensive, i will be truly jealous when you end up getting one!

i just placed my order for a custom piece from honeycomb organics for my septum, really stoked to get it as a lot of what they make is really pretty.
