I was going to wait until the tape was completely done, but I was too excited to keep these songs just sitting on my computer. I’m not quite sure how to describe playing with Josh and Dan; I could gush all day about how patient and considerate and encouraging they are, but I’ll stop myself before I word vomit on the internet.
Here’s one of my favorite tracks from the Congratulations tape that will exist soon.
Dang! Friends strike again.
1. Date yourself. Write letters that you’ll never send. Write letters to old friends. Give gifts. Masturbate. Go to the movies by yourself. Dance to that guilty pleasure album on your lunch break. Go to bed at 8pm. Read comics that only you have heard of. Make a list of what makes you bad ass…
Printing this out and hanging it on my wall. BRB.
Learning to be alone.
TW sexual assualt, rape, murder
so I’m going to preface this by saying I know absolutely nothing about the band, but I’m working on a project for the Boston Strangler at work, and the fact that he brutally raped and murdered his victims, it doesn’t make sense to me why someone would want to have a band with the same name.
^^^^^ I’m thinking shock value? bros don’t care. shitty.
Been saying this since day 1. Why do hype bands get a pass? Fuck the trends.
SO the thing I am most excited about musically right now (aside from the amazing bands I am in and already excited about) is playing bass for TAG ALONGS with Shane! He writes incredible songs and we have like the same exact taste in music and it has been a blast. We have written like 6 songs together and are going to record in March/April. Shane demo-d out this song that we have been working on and I was too stoked to not share it!
uhhhh… just listened to this like 5 times in a row. Why do all my friends do amazing thing? COS THEY’RE AMAZING. that’s why.
