LONDON BABY!!

so im actually here!!! in london!!! its awesome. amazing. rainy, lol, but i love it.

we've seen one play so far Much Ado About Nothing - where Beatrice was played by the same actress who played Madam Hooch in the Harry Potter films. it was extremely well done. we also got a tour of the national theatre where it was held, and the theatre itself is just...wow....it was three stages and its own workshop (thats huge!!!!). the stages range in sizes with the smallest being completely flexible from a circle stage to a regular stage, to anything else you can imagine, the next one you can crop the side of the stage to size you need for your play, and it has 4 movable floors, so 3 different productions can be put on at the same time without having to move the set - just the floors, and the largest stage has a revolving cirlce in the middle and huuuuuuge fly trap. its nuts!!! you can point anywhere on the stage, and you can have a prop lowered from the fly trap to within an inch of your finger. its that good. we were all blown away by the NT. its beautiful. and they also serve ice cream during intermission, heh. what more could you ask for?

but backing up.....lets start from the beginning.

the flight over there was alright, nothing to special. i watched the pirates of the caribbean 3 which was good. when we arrived in london we boarded this charter bus they had for us to take us to out apartments. but first we had to wait for this other girl to arrive and her flight was delayed., so that was another hour. now mind you we arrived new years eve and the last thing we wanted to do was stay in the airport any longer then necessary. but finally we all made it onto the bus. then the drive was like, the road is closed where your apartment is, i can drop you off 10 minutes from it. so were like fine, whatever, we'll walk. but a 10 minute walked turned into a good 20 minute walk with all of us carrying our luggage. not too fun. and we're split up into two apartments which were supposed to be like 10 minutes form each other, nope, they're 45. and we thought we were going to have internet, today was the first day we got. so needless to say, after we got to our apartment we had no way to reach the other group. but we all decided to throw on our nice clothes and go out anyways. we found this bar were we had a few drink and watched the ball drop from the tv. it was a good time.

the second day - we had class at 1 (now class is at 10 am each morning, but its alright, cause its in our apartment, heh, i just feel bad for the guys having to travel 45 minutes each day) which lasted about an hour. we just did an overview and stuff. class normally lasts about an hour to two hours. we then did some exploring and finally wound up at the National Theatre for our tour and to see the play. (see above)
after the play alyssa, sonnie, and i went to the guys apartment to check it out. so we squeezed all 8 of us into the elevator and pushed the 3rd floor button. we didnt move. so i press the ground floor button. nothing happened. i push the door open door. the doors dont budge. so yes. we got stuck in the elevator. fun times let me tell you!!! after 20 minutes of some people freaking out and attempting to manually open the doors they finally opened. we piled out. a great way to end the second night, heh.

so now here we are. at the third day. we did some shopping after class and picked up some essentials. now were just relaxing before the play tonight.

oh, and i found this magazine which had all this information about gay clubs and bars, so im bringing whoever wants to come with me (which is surprisingly almost the whole group!) to a club. im very excited. its gonna be a fun time.

well im gonna head out....but im sure ill have more updates very soon!

so my other band is going well. really well actually. we have about 5 songs done already and we're still writing more. our playing is getting really tight and im excited for things to happen. but we still dont have a name. this is where you guys come in. we've narrowed it down to our favorites, but we want other peoples opinions as well.

heres a bit about us:

we're 3 girls (possibly getting a 4th)
we're all gay
we're tough chicks
pierced and tattooed
our influences are Nirvana, Distillers, Sleater Kinney, Bikini Kill, Jack Off Jill and others
the singer Kim sounds like a cross between Kurt and Brody. She sings, screams and growls.
the bassist Elysa is freaking amazing (plays a 5 string as well). She also does background singing and screaming.
and we want to change the music world forever : )


here are the names we came up with:
liberation nation
the andros
androgyny prodigy
guns are pretty
the hunger
kill the king
f.o.r.t.i.f.y. (female organs retrace the inches from you)

of if you have any other suggestions, we're all ears


thanks!!

do you know what makes me sad?

when good bands make the wrong decision.

ive been a fan of this band SARCASM from LI for about...6 years now? something like that. i've stuck with them through thick and thin. when they went through member changes and everything. about a year ago i think they made a post saying that they were breaking up. i was devastated. this was a great band and an awesome group of people. so i was very happy to hear that soon after SARCASM's breakup, two of original members of the band were staying together and forming a new band called Drama For The Masses. i was very excited. i couldnt wait for the music. and the new music was great. your typical mainstream rock band, but i was a fan. kerrie was still on bass and vocals and brad was still on guitar and lead vocals. with the addition of another guitarist and drummer, they made a great team. life was good again.

then i found out they got a new singer. since they released their cd before this new singer came along, ive only heard the songs performed by brad and i've fallen in love with them. i like brad's voice. its unique and blends extremely well with kerrie's. well i noticed they had new videos up on youtube. so i check them out cause im curious to know that this new singer sounds like. lets just say i was extremely disappointed....his voice is high and whiny, nothing like the brad's lower more edgy voice. im just not a fan. this makes very sad cause they really are such a great band, but in my mind, this was a bad decision for them...

*siiiiigh*

well if your curious to hear for yourself, take a listen.

here is DFTM myspace page. all the recordings were sung by brad.

here are some videos of the songs with the new singer.
"To Whom It May Concern" and "This Is What We Did In Marching Band"

"Before The Breakdown" (kind of shitty quality...)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJE0ksqYmiU

"So Long Farewell" (again, kind of shitty quality, but i wanted a comparison for all 3 songs up on their myspace)

in other news do you know what makes me happy?
a clean room and clean clothes

Halloween

hey all.

i need some good ideas for a halloween costume. any suggestions?

here are a few of my own, what do you think...

1. Clark Kent - Wear a Superman shirt with a button up and tie over it, with the Superman shirt showing.

2. Captain Morgan - Dress like Captain Morgan from the rum bottle (red pirate coat and hat with gold trim, blue pants and cape, boots). Carry a Captain Morgan's Rum bottle.

3. Split Personality - Cut two outfits in half and sew them together. On one side wear a polo shirt, khaki pants, conservative hair, etc. On the other half, go goth: all black clothes, heavy make-up, piercings, tattoos, etc.

4. Kissing Booth - Construct a booth using two boxes, with the opening of the top box facing forward. Add straps so the boxes sit on your shoulders. Spray paint the boxes white and then use red paint to write "Kisses $1" and "Kissing Booth" on them.

5. Keebler Cookie Elf - Get a pair of yellow sweatpants, red socks, elf shoes, green suit-like jacket, white polo shirt, a yellow tie (you can make one out of some fabric and pin it to the shirt), and one of those tall hats. For the hat, cover it with red fabric and a yellow strip near the base. Color your hair white too.
