How many girlfriends did you date? Do you regret dumping any of them?
I’ve only had 1 actual girlfriend; the rest have been people I was “dating”/”seeing”/”involved with”/anything sort of quasi-title non-title people attribute when they have some sort of beyond platonic and physical relationship. I’ve never dumped any of them. It’s either been me getting broken up with or both parties passive aggressively deciding it wasn’t a good situation and walking away from it.
Lifetime is no longer playing the Fest. You had this to say:
“We’re sad to say that we’re going to have to cancel, or as Tony so kindly put it, “bail,” for Fest 10. Pete and his wife are expecting their second baby, and at their most recent doctor visit were told that this precious creature is…
Life is amazing. The journey is probably greatest thing anybody can ever ask for. Do u agree?
I think life is interesting. All sorts of stories and influences and thoughts to synthesize into your mind to form millions of perspectives. However I don’t think it is great; far too many bad things happen in life to make it so. I view life as a contract that you were signed into 9 months before you started work, and that you just have to get through it, be it, happily, humbly, or miserably.
So we’ve posted the entire EP on the facebook page here. If you haven’t heard it yet, take a few minutes and check it out. Catchy, hard-hitting, heartfelt pop-punk that harkens back to a time before Attack Attack/generic-breakdown-every-songcore/Metro Station/every-goddamn-band-that-makes-you-like-their-page-before-listening (seriously, that shit HAS to stop; if you’re reading this and your band does that, everyone hates that. stop it) .

“I want a soul mate who can sit me down, shut me up, tell me ten things I don’t already know, and make me laugh. I don’t care what you look like, just turn me on. And if you can do that, I will follow you on bloody stumps through the snow. I will nibble your mukluks with my own teeth. I will do your windows. I will care about your feelings. Just have something in there.”—
On 1. intelligence; fondness of debate and arguing helps too. 2. honesty 3. fashion sense 4. good, invested music taste (will gladly substitute music for some other form of art) 5. a sense of humor 5a. a passion for something other than profit
Off 1. fakeness, whether it be fake niceness, fake rebelliousness, fake artsiness, fake modesty. 2. fishing for compliments 3. thinking you’re above attachment/commitment; too many “Zooey Deschannel from 500 Days of Summer” types out there 4. boy crazy types; I’m not interested in being #1000 5. cheaters. the worst.
Looking for shows in New England next weekend (Oct 15-16)
Bellwether is playing a Haiti Benefit show up at UMass Amherst next saturday, October 15th. The show is from 2-6; we’re looking for a show that same night in the general area and/or a Connecticut show the next day on the way down. If anyone can help us out/let us know of shows we should look to hop onto, that’d be great. We’d be down to play basements, houses, etc. Reblog please, and contact us via messaging Desmond Zantua on facebook, or contacting the bandpage. Thank you!
“When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: “If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.” It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something. “Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”—Steve Jobs, RIP (via thatsydneyk)
For every person who has said “fuck crabcore” “fuck hipsters” “fuck shitty hyped supreme wearing rappers” but claims to like “real” or “good” music, do yourselves and everyone else a favor and buy a record for once..or go to a show instead of just posting the bands lyrics on tumblr. Be proactive.
walking down Northern Boulevard last night, heading to Dunkin Donuts before our set, some combination of the chilly air and the neon lights made me want to fall in love for the first time in a long time.
