Hey my friends,
I have made a new livejournal because this one is acting kind of weird. So, without further adieu, I unveil to you contextiskey.livejournal.com. Please add it because I still want to read about all of you but I don't want to go through all 59 of you and click "add". Not that I'm particularly lazy or anything, but... Well yeah I am. Thank you everyone!!

I guess I was meant to come to the ER for one reason or another today [Mar. 4th, 2008|09:49 pm]

Blake's balls got tied together in his sleep and he woke up in xtreme pain this morning. He had to go into emergency surgery. I guess that's what he gets for thinking about selling one of them. He's okay though.

I'm in the emergency room with my sisters because she might have appendicitis. She might have to have surgery. At least it won't be to untangle her balls.

Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward made an album together. It's coming out on March 18th. Maybe when they come to town she would be down for some bangin'.

I just got done watching Margot at the Wedding. I thought it was pretty good. Jack Black was really great, and so was Nicole Kidman. Masturbation is a running plot element in that movie. I worked all day today and did some thinking about my foreseeable future. I don't think I'm going to school next year, but I'm not entirely sure. Work kind of sucked. My room was getting a bit messy so I cleaned it. I played with some LEGOs too. After work I went out to Red Robin with Danielle and Adam and spent my last $20 on a BLTA croissant and a tall mug of my favorite beer, and all of that was very nice. I think tomorrow I'm going to go to church on my own for the first time ever. I don't have to work tomorrow at all, but I don't know what I'm doing with the rest of my day. I should probably do some homework or start making a portfolio. Who am I kidding? That latter part definitely won't happen. I know that I'm hanging out with Blake. I haven't seen him in a while so I'm looking forward to that. Weird girls are messaging me on myspace. I guess they aren't that weird. Maybe it's just weird that girls are messaging me on myspace.

Mr. Romney, the Republican candidate from Massachusetts by way of Michigan and Utah who enjoys a milkshake at the end of a long day, stopped by a staging area for a Martin Luther King Birthday parade here. In his dress shirt and tie, and with his unwavering smile, he walked over and posed for photographs with a group of black youngsters. Putting his arm around a teenage girl, he waved to the cameras and offered, “Who let the dogs out?” He added a tepid “woof woof.”

Virtual is code for "not real". [Jan. 22nd, 2008|02:22 am]
Gabriel A. B. Johnson
[Right now I'm feeling |amusedWow.]

This has got to be the closest humans have ever gotten to being able to legally steal a person's money:

"I have an idea to get the company out of the shitter."
"...I'll bite. Go on."
"Okay, bear with me now. We take things that people like getting as gifts, like prescription glasses, handcuffs, and apples with worms in them, and make mini-computer illustrated pictures of them for people to give to other people. They buy these non real gifts and give them to other people."
"That is a great idea, Tony, but I see one flaw: selling people things that aren't real is a criminally punishable crime called 'fraud'."

Unless you use a codeword like "virtual" to replace "not real". Then it's gravy.

Something to sell to the kids [Jan. 17th, 2008|12:44 pm]
Gabriel A. B. Johnson
[Right now I'm feeling |awakeawake]

"Either she loves you or she’s left you. Luckily, A Cursive Memory has already written the soundtrack for both.

Because they know things change. And music is how you deal with it.

In fact, there has never been a time in their lives that they didn’t want to “break some hearts and climb some charts,” in the words of founding member Shaun Profeta.

Changes (2/19/08 on Vagrant), their debut full length, is streamlined, catchy, and just anthemically huge. Inspired by the growth they and their sound have gone through since their start, Changes is, they say half-jokingly, “kind of like music puberty.”

ACM is the twin guitar and vocal attack of Profeta and Colin Baylen, with Mark Borst Smith and newcomer Dillan Wheeler locking down the rhythm. The So-Cal 4-piece has already mailed in their dues with DIY-style touring, at one point locking their merch guy, Gooch, in the trailer for half an hour. oops!

That baptism by fire paid off. They went from being a high school band to Vagrant’s latest signing, going coast-to-coast on national tours.
They’ve already held their own onstage with Jimmy Eat World, HelloGoodbye, Boys Like Girls, and more. If they get their way, it’ll be months of hitting the road with more bands like tourmates New Found Glory and Senses Fail, more hotel rooms and a van that smells like dudes.

After one listen to “Everything,” can you really not hear thousands of kids singing along? Well they already are. “Perfect Company,“ already featured in the season finale of the Simple Life, is only one of the album’s rockers with more hooks than a prosthetics ward. Think All-American Rejects, think Mae, think the Killers, but when you hear Changes, you’ll think again.

Because they’ve been well beyond the point of imitation-as-tribute for years. So age, experience – whatever. Here’s the bottom line: the only way anyone is getting A Cursive Memory’s songs out of their head is with a lobotomy. And that shit is expensive.

A bunch of friends wrote some songs once. Now they’re going to do it all. It’s time for some Changes."

Ate a good meal at my parents' house, helped sis with some interesting math problems, printed shirts upon shirts, watched some LOST, dried and cured shirts upon shirts, learned a useful new drumming tidbit from Blake, gonna go read chapter "cautro" in Bless Me, Ultima.

My good friend Edrease and I are having a business lunch next week on Monday or Tuesday to talk about me designing and printing 150-200 shirts for some sort of block party UWT puts on at the end of each school year. I talked to me mum about it and about how I need to get better equipment for screen printing. She suggested me downgrading my Macbook about $300 and buying a 4-screen press with the money. Sounds good to me. This is seriously exciting news.

A little update on pointless things. Nonetheless, an update. [Jan. 2nd, 2008|12:08 am]
Gabriel A. B. Johnson
[Right now I'm feeling |hopefulhopeful]

Bringing in the new year at my house went well. I was kind of reclusive most of the night, but not on purpose. These really scene girls keep adding me on myspace. I've had like three in the past two days. It's been really strange. I bought a whole bunch of good new music on Friday when Adam and I made a trip to Seattle:

-"Yanqui U.X.O."  2x12" by Godspeed You! Black Emperor
-"Elephant" CD by Pele
-"Coltrane" 12" by John Coltrane
-"Carmina Burana" 12", composed by Carl Orff, conducted by Seiji Ozawa and performed by the Boston Symphony
-"Return Engagement" 2x12" by Bill Evans
-"Serenade to Music (Text by Shakespeare)" 12" composed by Ralph Von Williams and performed by the London Philharmonic
-"The Air Force" 12" by Xiu Xiu
-"Shake Harder Boy" CD by Harkonen

I can't decide which one is my favorite out of the bunch. It's rare to buy this many albums at a time and have them all be so good. I'm really happy about it.

I also bought a set of 8 7" that supplement an elementary German textbook from 1962, 25 lessons in all. I played the first lesson and it's nothing but a German man and woman saying german words and phrases. I think it will be really cool to use them as sound bytes once I get my sampler up and running, which should be soon seeing as how I'm moving home within the week (with any luck) and will have extra money to throw around. And speaking of having extra money to do cool shit with, I'm taking drum lessons from Mark Gajdhar, who was the drummer for the Blood Brothers. I'm excited beyond expression.

I start school at Pierce again tomorrow and really need to get going to bed for that. I'm taking a couple graphic design classes and maybe Photography 3. It's gonna be like that for the next two quarters. I'm excited taking classes that directly relate to my future. My student loan got approved and I get to pay the UW back for the loan I took out from them, pay for the next two quarters of school at Pierce, and buy a 15" MacBook Pro with Adobe CS3 and a Wacom tablet. This is all really, really good.

I just realized that I've been kind of blah lately, even though I just put into perspective how well my life is going. I hope that clears up soon. I think I've just been really sick of the season. That's what it seems like anyways. Goodnight lovelies.

    Pulling an all-nighter worked out alright. I got really tired though at the end of my day (which was at noon) and actually caught myself nodding off on my way home. It scared me and kept me awake for the rest of my drive home. I didn't discuss my Christmas bounty on here in my last entry, so here is the basic gist of what I got:

-Canon Digital Rebel XT
-80 gig iPod classic
-Epson Perfection v350 photo scanner
-Epson Ultra-Hi Definition r280 photo printer
-Bicycle accessories
-Music
-Movies
-Books
-New underwear to change into after opening all of my presents

    Seriously, this was by far the best Christmas I've ever had as far as receiving goes, and I'm very thankful for everything I opened. I was pretty proud of everything I got my family and friends, even though I only bought for a couple people since cash was tight this year. I bought Kaitlynne Death Cab's "Something About Airplanes", "Achilles Heel" by Pedro the Lion, a sweet Death Cab tee, and a tree calendar. Dad: two Carhart work shirts that I'm screenprinting his business's logo onto. For my mom I bought a pair of black Crocs that she wanted and a throw blanket that she asked for. Adam and I are exchanging gifts later this week, and Blake gave me a gift but I have yet to buy his. I bought Sean, Jon, and myself all tickets to see Converge and Neurosis on February 16th and I gave Katie the new Kevin Drew album.
    I'm going to start prepping my room at my parents house for occupancy again. I think I'm going to paint the walls white and the chair-rail mint green, but I've also been thinking about doing something bold, like a darkish red with a white chair-rail. The red would be warm and inviting in the winter, but I don't know how much I'd like it in the summer months. White and mint green sounds appealing year-round, but a little bland. Whichever scheme I go with, I'm excited to move back home and have extra money to throw around again. It'll also be nice to get away from the constant flow of people and noise. I love company, but it's a bit much sometimes. Having a jam at my house is cool with me, until it's 3:30am and all I want to do is read in silence and go to sleep in peace. Whatever, don't sweat the small stuff. I'm 21 and I guess this is the life. All-in-all I'm happy with where I'm at right now and what I'm doing for the future. It's all a part of the ebb-and-flow.

QUOTED FROM KILLERMOVIES.COM:

Peter Jackson To Make 'The Hobbit'

Wednesday, December 19th, 2007

Peter Jackson, Oscar-winning director of the Lord of the Rings movies, has signed a deal to produce two films based on JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit.

The filmmaker had been in dispute with New Line Cinema over income generated by the first film in the Rings trilogy.

"I'm very pleased that we've been able to put our differences behind us," said Jackson. "We are delighted to continue our journey through Middle Earth."

I had a really good day yesterday.
Slept in until 1:30pm, totaling 12.5 hours of sleep. Worked until 12am, had an hour long lunch break around  6pm. Got my new phone fixed on my break and did some Christmas shopping. I bought two voice recorders- one for my friend Jordan -- who is on his Mormon mission in Torreon, Mexico -- and the other for myself. My old voice recorder broke and I had the idea to buy him and me a set of voice recorders so that we could record and mail messages back and forth to each other. I also bought my dad two long-sleeved Carhart shirts that I'm going to screenprint his business logo onto. I think he'll really dig it. Ate a gyro. After work I decided to go to Denny's and have a dinner and read one of the books that I just purchased called Socrates Buddha Confucius Jesus by a guy named Karl Jaspers. The first chapter was about Socrates; reading it has been amazing. I don't know if reading that book hit me at just the right point in my life, but I connect with Socrates's philosophy in so many different ways. It almost weirded me out; I weirded other customers, to be sure. Halfway through that first chapter I realized that I was getting pretty animated and verbal in my agreement with the text. Regardless, it was great, and so was the breakfast burger that I ate there too. Came home, started to clean my room, talked to Tom for a while, then talked to Sean for a while, cleaned a bit more, and went to bed.

I went to UW computer lab today and scanned some of my photography projects from last year. This is most of the project outcome for my spring quarter photography class. I'm happy with the photos, but there was one picture that I took out that I feel like I need to replace. That being said, consider this particular project a work in progress. Of course I'm posting the pictures for you to look at, but my only request is that if you have something to say about them, say it; both questions and comments. I'm always happy to answer questions, and I'm always looking for constructive criticism on my work; if you can dish it I can take it. Thanks for looking.

Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t'was his intent
To blow up King and Parliament.
Three-score barrels of powder below
To prove old England's overthrow;
By God's providence he was catch'd
With a dark lantern and burning match.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, let the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King! 
A penny loaf to feed the Pope 
A farthing o' cheese to choke him.
A pint of beer to rinse it down.
A faggot of sticks to burn him.
Burn him in a tub of tar.
Burn him like a blazing star.
Burn his body from his head.
Then we'll say ol' Pope is dead.

I hate all the junior-high romances happening right now. Stop being so irrational and think about what you're doing to your supposed romantic interest, and, less importantly, to yourself. Try to act like you're out of junior high.
I'd like to say sorry that this was so scathing, but I'd be lying if I did. Most of this, though, is attributed to my bad mood, so I am sorry for that.

So, I don't know if this is okay to ask, but I have some photography that I did for my 35mm photography class a couple quarters ago that I'd like to show. Does anyone know any good places in Tacoma that display local art? I don't mean to say "the world should see my art" or for anyone to think that I'm pretentious or egotistical about my stuff, but I'd love to get some criticism on it and to make some new friends. And if it does go over somewhat well, let's face it, it's always nice to be appreciated.

I Started reading Shakespeare's Othello today for class. I hate it. 
Macbeth was really good and I enjoyed reading King Henry IV, part I, so much in fact that I'd like to read the rest of the series (and I can because I bought William Shakespeare, The Complete Works today for only $18 at the UWT bookstore. Exciting exciting, I know). Othello though, is a son-of-a-bitch. 
I need to find a different job; one that 's closer to home and one that pays better. 
In the mean time, I have to write about Othello. Good day.

I've been a bit off lately and I don't know why. I've had a short temper, have been more reclusive in my house, and haven't been just the wacky, good-humored Gabe that I normally am. I've also just felt, I guess the only way I can put it is dumber. I feel like I don't have anything intelligent to contribute to conversation anymore. Maybe I haven't all along and I'm just coming to terms with reality. Here is a list of things I've been stressed out about aside from this stuff:

-My family's situation
-Money
-Adam
-Work (which is partially a derivitive of money, but not fully)

And that's pretty much it, except for whenever I go to my parents house for some reason I get very irritable. It's always my mom and Kaitlynne fighting, or me feeling awkward around my dad for no reason, or my mom being depressed about our situation, or me just being in a bad mood (which seems to be the trend lately). Aside from these things, my life is great. My job is treating me good, school is fantastic, I think I'm moving to Tacoma in January, I've been reading a lot, we're getting the internet tomorrow, Edrease and I have been jogging, etc.
I hate the way I am right now; I'm in a rut and I need to get out. The only thing is, I feel comfortable acting the way I am. That's the worst part of it all, and I hate it, and I don't know what to do.

I had a great week/weekend. I won't delve into every nook and cranny, but I will give you a list of highlights:
Working @ Supermall Pac-Sun all week
Seeing my cousin Steven I haven't seen since 9th grade at his mom's funeral
Going to see the Seattle Symphony play a medley of sci-fi theme songs
Seeing These Arms Are Snakes, Akimbo, and Mikaela's Fiend @ the Old Redmond Firehouse
Going to a BBQ/setup date(??)
Signing up for classes @ UWT
Making plans to print all of Return of the Bison's merch
Making a music myspace for my things
And, as always, kickin ass and taking names

Any questions?

I didn't end up getting to see Animal Collective last night. Zach, Danielle, and I got up to Seattle too late and the show was sold out. Lame lame, but it didn't ruin our night. We ended up walking all around Broadway; I bought a red American Apparel zip-up hoodie and Zach and Danielle bought a bunch of music @ Everyday. Went home and turned into Oscar the Grouch and read a few chapters in The Last Battle and went to bed around 2am. I was in a bland mood all day today until I took a nap at about 8:30pm for around 30 minutes. I also went to the doctor today because I'm still sick. Apparently my virus turned into a sinus infection so I was prescribed some medicine. I was also reccomended a saline salution nasal rinse that I'm very excited to try. I guess you squirt an entire bottle of the stuff up one nostril and it drains all of your sinuses out the other. Sarina, Katie, Alana, my sister, and I are having a feast and watching the third season of the Office tonight. I'm going to go anihilate a sinus infection. Adiu.

Getting drunk on a Thursday night is the most mediocre that that's ever happened to me. I'm going to enjoy going to Animal Collective tomorrow night with Zach and Danielle, and hopefully I run into Kiersten. I wanted to write about something else, but I cannot remember.

Life is going good and I think I am doing well. I feel good about choices that I'm making lately and about where I'm going right now. No stagnance; constant vigilance is the key. On a side note, the party last night was fun.
I like working at Pac Sun, but I need a job where I use my brain a bit more (and that pays better). The search begins soon for lucky #17.
I'm going to go read a lot now.
I love it when people step in my puke barefoot, especially when they're a birthday girl.

I realized today that I don't have much pride in myself. It's bad to have too much pride, but I think there's a healthy amount that everyone needs to have. Add that to the to do list.

Also I'm rediculous. I'm gonna go read myself to sleep.

Hey you double-devillocked 22 year-old pedophile piece of shit,
Pull your head out of your ass and take care the kid you made behind your girlfriend's back.
Stop trying to make it with your shitty band. If anything you guys have lowered the standard for Tacoma's music scene.
Get a real job, quit partying like it's 1999, and stop trying to fuck anything under 18 that has a vagina. Grow up you asshole.

"You ever seen the chick that sings this?"
"Evanescense?"
"Yeah, Fucking hot!"
"I don't really think so..."

Before tonight, employment at Trackside Pizza was bearable. After tonight, I'm quitting. I just wanna get outta here (I'm updating this from work) and hang out.







For serial.

I laughed, I cried, I finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. My goodness, I have seldom experienced a thing so wonderful.

What are you afraid of?

Open water really creeps me out, the dark, and defending myself.
