"yeah, that's how it starts"

my favorite line from Training Day.

well not my favorite, but most relevant.

i went to a show last night, to take my mind off of things. a bit of a farewell i suppose.
it was in Guelph, metal, metalcore bands. the usual (for me, locally anyway).

bought some merch from a band called Farewell to Freeway. music's all right, but i had ended up talking to one of them at the merch table after they played, and they all seemed like nice dudes so I figured I'd buy something.

afterwards, i headed to the N V Lounge, and a couple of them happened to be there. we did the whole "drunken new best friends bit" and I hung out long enough to meet up with the rest of the band elsewhere.

same shit that happens when any musicians get together over drinks. we talked about music. exchanged info, myspace, just got done recording, let me hear it, oh man, we should play together, blah blah blah etc., blackout.

well i don't know if blackouts usually happen, but they usually do when i'm out drinking and chatting. to me, anyway.

anyway, checking my email this afternoon, and one of them emailed me a song not bad. nothing like what i heard at the show, but i dig it.

anyway, the reason for the title of the post and movie reference, is that i am headed off to see my friend Darren in NYC. still not set on whether that will be the end or not, but at the very least, it would be cool to celebrate New Year's in New York, since the image of Times Square is almost synonymous.

i've said bye to everyone that needed to know.
let Sam know via text. was not happy with the response.

oh well.

Quod fiat, fiat.

(i'm not that smart, i saw it written on someone's myspace earlier and looked it up)

Take that off of there. Bands and labels work hard to put out their music. Why should you be able to get the glory of releasing it before they? Nice move.
