Summer was busy, and not in a good way. I got some hardcore blogging/songwriting done this summer and that's about it. I don't feel very accomplished because i haven't put any of my stuff into action. Life is nice though, if i complained i would have to be a royal asshole. Friends are falling into new and out of old habits, and it's nice to watch people change, even if i stay the same person.

I love life

But i hate today

so ends the saga that was english 1 review during summer school

i loved it. We had a good teacher. An intellegent teacher. He took and gave criticism where it was needed and he wasn't an ass about telling us we were wrong.

Thanks mr. brown

Guess what, i failed english 1. How embarassing. And the part that really kicks my ass? Summer school is 5 hours a day, 5 days a week, for a month. That's a lot of obnoxious hours just because my turned in assignments didn't add up to a D. I feel pretty stupid, especially because i was capable of the grades. and i'm not grounded, which AMAZES ME no end.

FOR ALL YOU WONDERFUL PEOPLE who wanted to come to the water and knife show: you can drop by the puyallup farmers market, we'll be playing an acoustic show and you can leave us tips and cheer for us and make us feel cool. That should be a blassssst.. yeah.

and rose is awesome

These past couple weeks have been pretty rad. I nearly cried at graduation, and i didn't get to hang out with as many seniors there as i thought i would. I got to hang out with the famous Brian Anderson, as we looked for Tina to give her purse back. I saw kipp there and gave him the most rad hug ever conceived by humans.

I got to go to the 06/06/06 show, which was very in-between. I got a ride from Kipp/the entire Feral lineup. So i got there around 4, and had to wait through 2 soundchecks and an hour and a half at the door before i could go in. I saw some high-grade amigos there such as evan bird, matt gosselin, miles demille, and nate. That was shweet.

so i walk in. Feral had already started playing, and they got done with their set approx. 10 minutes after i got in. That sucked. Cuz i like feral, and i paid $25 in advance to get their t-shirt and get rushed to the front. The next band was Sarah Connor. They were extremely terrible, off key, no rhythm (their drummer sucked), and a terrible rockabilly song. I think they were skinheads the way the bassist did a little "heil hitler" thing at the end. After them was I Defy. I defy was mediocre, but not bad either, some old guys playing metal/punk mix. It was fun. Then came Durango 95 which was completely energetic and fun to listen to. I think their singer was on some weird drug though, haha. Afer them-angelsdevilsghosts. They were quite honestly the worst band EVER. everyone just did shitty solos the whole time and sometimes not even in the same key. I hated them. Next was 3 inches of blood. They were amazing. Gah, i haven't seen that good of a band live in quite a while. So all in all, there were slightly more high points than low points to that show.

This week has been easy, we haven't had any of mr. larson's stupid homework. Thank god i'm almost done with geometry. all my classes have just been studying for finals.

yesterday i learned that WATER AND KNIFE's show might be cancelled, because thrill zone has been cancelling a lot of shows lately? or something like that... i don't know

FINAL POINT (there is no moral to this journal): I have never called a local band AMAZING until i saw transunion last night. I stopped by the hall to hang out with/see jack hamrick since his band (transunion) was playing there, and i stayed to watch them and they were AMAZING....

FIRST: read the post below this....

NEXT: I know i have since pounded this into the ground, but my band, Water and Knife (www.myspace.com/waterandknife) has a show on the last day of school, June 13th. It's at the thrill zone skate park in tacoma.

And my other band, Fail-Safe Failed, which is more skate punk (www.myspace.com/foolhardybafoon), is planning on having shows this summer, and we'd love your support, thanks a bunch!

For all seniors, those leaving, and those staying... [May. 27th, 2006|07:42 am]
[mood |Extremely Sad]
[music |Such Great Heights-Postal Service]

I doubt that many of you believe me when i say to you that i will miss you more than i've ever missed anyone else in my life. I became very (unusually) emotional when i realized that some of you i may never see again, so i wrote a little tribute to you.

H-Here goes...

When you read the profile of any ten people on AOL Instant Messenger or Myspace, youre guaranteed to see the phrase, My friends are my life, somewhere in the profile. I read this phrase a good number of times daily, and each day that I read it I would think to myself, Thats not possible, they must have something more important in their lives. But now I know that friends are life, and I learned it the hard way. I learned it after my friends (or more importantly, role models) left me to fend for myself in the Bellarmine community.

What I mean to say is that I have never had a bond with anyone as great as the bond which has developed this year between Bellarmines graduating seniors and me. I never thought these people, who seemed so ordinary, could have such an extraordinary effect on my life. I have experienced Bellarmine seniors through good times and bad, better times, and worse times, all in this one year, and I can honestly say that you will not find a better group of people anywhere.

I have spent a four hour night sleeping next to Hannah Tripp and Jake McDonough. I have spent countless days after school rehearsing plays with the likes of Elizabeth Evans, Erin Daniels, Scott Miller, Sarah Parent, Erikka Fiske, Sarah Hartburg-Petrich, and Zowie Aleshire. Ive spent long days chasing down Andy Osborn about selling me drum equipment. Ive taken the time to get to know a kid named Mike Gosselin after meeting him at Club Impact. Ive asked the likes of Tina Chaloner and Sierra Bucher for a transport when my usuals just wouldnt get there in time. Ive attended many-a-band trip with the likes of Jordan Clark, Eva Breitenbach, Peter Hamrick, Ernest Hartwell, Dan Rousseau, (and more whom I probably forgot). Ive had many the intellectual (and not-so-intellectual) conversation with Quinn Lewington and Aarin Murray. Ive spent hours making a movie with Laura Dynan and Colby Moore. And only God knows how many others of you Ive encountered and challenged myself to know better.

The point of this story is: I will miss you all immensely, even those of you whom I do not know. I (literally) almost cried when I was on my way to school this last Friday and realized that none of you would be there. I am really, deeply sorrowed to see you all go. I will miss you and keep you all in my hearts, and do my best to honor your memory. I only hope that your lives affected others as much as they affected me. I can only hope we stay in touch until we are able to hang out with each other again.

With regards,

Paul Morgan

What a crazy week, eh? Monday and tuesday were pretty uneventful, as my after-school activity of choice was furthering my sewing abilities. Wednesday was C to the razy. At the farewell to seniors concert, i had to play this insane jazz band song on bass guitar. It was a Buddy Rich song, so it was insane. I was sweating so bad after that song, I can only hope i feel good after my band's shows. Oh, did i not say that? My band has two shows pending in the month of June. They'll be on Fridays or Saturdays, so i'll be inviting you all most definitely.

THursday was kind of lame. i had a dermatology appointment for my hands and feet, and now i have to go to a hand/foot tanning bed twice a week to heal them up. That's not odd or anything (not the sarcasm which couldn't be used on the internet).

Friday was cool, i caught up with some homies big time. I saw Joel and that was cool. He seems to be doing well, although he seems a little shy. I also saw Jesse, yeah you all saints kids remember him. He is his same old self, looks the same, lies to us a lot. He asked me how my bands were doing and i said fine. I told him we were gonna have shows in june, at impact, and he told me that his band had one there on wednesday night. He followed that by saying that they didn't have a name yet. And impact doesn't have shows on wednesdays, nor do they showcase nameless bands. Whatever though, if that's how he gets by, lying, then i guess that's him.

today hopefully i'll be recording (seperately, gaaaah) all the tracks to my band's songs. I've been hoping people in the band could come do it with me, but they're not available for a while... that's alright

Feel the wrath of the Super Rad [May. 13th, 2006|07:27 pm]
[mood |super rad! super relaxed]
[music |Those anarcho punks are mysterious-Against Me]

AQUABATS!!! SO i spent some quality time with Kevin G and Alex J at the Streetlight/Aquabats show. We got their just as streetlight was about to start, and boy were they good. For streetlight, the pit was so insane that i just hung out on the balcony the whole time. My arms and legs were ACHING like craaaazy after streetlight's set was done.

So while i waited for the aquabats to come on (and while i frantically joined the others in chanting their name), i went up onto the balcony to look for Tina, Hannah, and Sierra. I never found them. Shame... But then again, the aquabats didn't play the song that tina and i were gonna dance to. They played some good old ones, and some good new ones.

A nice group of kids with mohawks and i shared a very LARGE skanking circle for most of the aquabats' leg, which was AMAZING.. I haven't skanked in such a long time. It was wonderful.


The show last night is why i miss the local scene so much. Everybody jumping around and just having a good time no matter how they were dressed. No one was doing drugs or stealing beer from the bars. it was great. We NEVER used to drink at shows. And last night, nobody drank, which was AMAZING. I just remember being crammed in the middle of a HUGE pit at club impact, and wanting no more than to just stay there and push my friends around, and bounce around everywhere. That's how it was last night. I was singing along with the songs and jumping and yelling "AQUABATS" at the top of my lungs. Everything was amazing... One day, i'll get all my friends to go to a GREAT show like that. Hopefully warped will be that way this summer, if i get to go....
