Wasted Days

You know what? Sometimes life is pretty damn awesome.

For too long this year I was apathetic about life and too depressed. It really sucks when you feel like you just can't break out of that vicious cycle. But really all you have to do is take a step back and look at the bigger picture. Honestly, I've found that if you just relax and don't overreact to situations that don't merit it, things play out in your favour.

Because some days you get to hang out with your girlfriend, skateboard, wear your descendents t-shirt, watch beasties and Mike V videos and play guitar.

And when that stops sounding like the ideal day to me, then you can shoot me.

One of the Greatest Men Ever

More people need to be like Jesse Michaels:

When asked about Op Ivy's influence (they did basically create a genre and every "ska" band around today rips them off whether they're aware of it or not), he says that they didn't really do anything, that bands were doing it before them. He says they were just a link in the chain. This just straight up isn't true every ska band rips them off.

When asked about his new band, he says that his "backing band" are a band also, deferring attention off himself.

When asked about Barack Obama, he says that he doesn't care if he's black or white, but likes the things he's doing.

"I try not to think of myself as higher than anyone in the audience"

Seriously the guy has written some of the best lyrics punk has ever seen. He completely changed how a genre of music was played. Put out two incredible albums with Common Rider. Still he acts like he formed some small time band two weeks ago.

More people should be like Jesse Michaels.

"This time I got it all figured out, all I know is that I don't know, all I know is that I don't know nothing, and that's fine"

It's Every Time

"When I feel like shit, then the music hits, I'm fine"

Fuck most things.
