It’s been HOT!!!

Standard

It’s been hot… obscenely so… The heatwave that has been going on up here is absolutely insane with numerous record temeratures in the triple digits. It’s just crazy to think that only a few months ago people were freezing to death in a record setting snow storm… (I was snowed-in for quite a while personally) and now you are hearing about deaths related to the heat…

I even questioned if I was heat casing in my Math class today… Who’d have thunk??? Worst part is that I had a Math test today as well… I hope I did well.. I didn’t study as much as I had originally intended to… you know?

So my photography seems to be getting more and more recognition in the local music industry… well the rockabilly side… which is GREAT! Marshall Scott Warner wants me to come out to his show at the Tractor Tavern tomorrow and get some shots… I told him that I have a date (more on that guy later), and he was tryiong to convince me to just move my date to the show… I told him it is up to my date (which it is) and he’s even offered to guest-list me and my date… which is nice… I find it nice that people want my services so much they are willing to get me into shows… Maybe it’ll lead to some profits enough to buy some cameras…

So anyways, about my date… I met this guy (Allen) at the Reverend Horton Heat show that I went to on the 11th of July. He was just the random guy behind my in the crowd… so we flirted during the show and he gave me his number… so we’ve had quite the crazy last few weeks. I’m pretty sure he is good for me. He’s insistent on taking things nice and slow which is good for me… I have a really bad habit of going too far too fast. On top of it he is gorgeous! I really like him and he says the same of me… It’s great!

So our tastes are similar and we are both in school which has to stay my primary concern in life as I really want to be able to get into PLU… It’s really important to me… I just hope I will be able to afford it in the end you know?

Farewell The Jet City Fix

Standard

You guys have kinda been epic in my life… I wouldn’t be who I am today if it werent for you guys and going to your shows and getting to know you guys… I’ve now watched you guys and enjoyed you guys from the beginning to the end…

Back in the days when I was too young to go to your guys’ shows and Ty still worked at GC…. he’d play me a riff or hum a few bars… I even remember him telling me that he was gonna start a band with his brother Justin and how excited he was… and over time meeting the rest of the band and hearing it more… turning 18 and finally getting to see you guys at an all ages show… and welcoming me with open arms… showing me what it’ really all about.

You guys showed me what’s so unique about the Tacoma scene that is just awesome. How we’re a family…. and yet you guys also bridged the Gap to Seattle and celebrated being from there seamlessly… You guys were and always will be a true celebration of rock and our region… and I will also always love you and respect you as the total bad ass big brothers you’ve proven yourselves to be over the years…

I know it’s not completely dead… mainly a change of name… but still it’s kinda an epic time in my life anyways and since you guys were so epic in my life as well… so the timing is just right and the meaning is much more to me… Thank you for being what you were and are and always be…

Can’t wait to see what come!!! It can only keep getting better… and Jet city will always be rockin!!! YEAH!
