Easter/Summer Nights

So, Pretty good day today. There are lots of things I like and don't like about Easter I think. A majority of them I think stems from my family, but I guess its nice to eat a good dinner, eat Easter eggs (yes the Easter bunny still visits my house even though me and my brother are both a little too old, we still had a good time.

What made my day however(and it usually does) was goin over to Sam’s. Got all my family related frustrations out in a good bassing. We're getting ready for our show on Thursday at the Basement and Sat...The battle of the bands final, which should be interesting....OH MAN it would be good to win that.

Afterwards me and Sam were hanging out watching some TV and we were talking about a day in the summer. We got up, went to the beach(it was really hot) hung out there all day, came back to Sam’s, played music till supper time, went to my house and had a BBQ then back to Broadway to Lydia’s for some good times. This basically sums up our summer days (when we weren't working). This warm weather has gotten me all excited for more of these(unless I get the job in Regina I applied for). Its lazy times like these that are so gratifying in the summer, i mean we really didn't do anything spectacular but it was just a good time.

But I'm off to do a little more family time

till next time...

Sorry To Disapoint the Ryan Fans(Heres somthing for ya)

Yeah, I guess it has been a while, I'll make a point to post more pics from battle of the bands, I just have kinda been all over the place lately.
(This is for Caitlin, who even in person expressed her need for my blog haha)

Last night we (The Breaks) played open mic at lydias. It's been pretty cool seeing it all come together somewhat, there actually seems to be a little breaksmania goin around town, well a very small amount, but it's definitely something to feel good about, especially when accomplished musicians around town are talking and coming out to see you. It was definitely a weird situation, to play on such a large scale, like the battle of the bands for your first show, then go into a situation like lydias where there are a lot of people there you don't know, and not very many of them, but I was surprisingly more nervous (although not much) than I was at the battle of the bands, I suppose I just have some sort of complex where I desire utter acceptance of other people to something I'm involved with. At the battle of the bands I wasn't expecting acceptance, and if i did, it was because so many of my friends were there. This situation was slightly different, more because there are a lot of people there that, unexpectedly are going to be exposed to our music, and its cool, but also kinda stressful, because I wasn’t people to like it, because I hold it so dear to myself.

I guess however I shouldn't be publicly expressing this, I'm suppose to be a rock star right, cocky etc. HAHA ah well.

Today was ridiculous in Art History. I kind of have a love hate relationship with this class. Its 3 Hours on Wed, making it the last class in my longest school day. This is somewhat discouraging in its favor, but it always seems to still keep my attention and get me excited about what it's talking about. I could actually see myself getting at least a minor in it, because I’m actually unbelievable intrigued with the relationship that art (and now I suppose media) played in historical change and transition. But I also find that class very frustrating, mostly due to the stupidity, insensitiveness etc of the general people in that class(and I guess pretentiousness). But anyways, I was sitting in a spot, where the Prof, could actually see me, because I was in the front row of the raised back part. Anyways, she’s talking about the Vietnam war and its effect on society etc. Anyways, I put my hand up, and kept it up for over 15 minutes, and she NEVER called on me. It was so ridiculous, I actually had a good point, that was going to further the discussion in the class, because everyone that was talking was kind of going in a circle, and really coming up with nothing prevalent etc. It was funny, because everyone in the area was laughing because she would look at me and everything, and just call on someone else. And finally she called on me, maybe after 20 min, and i had put my hand down. And my point was already kinda stated, so it was useless to even begin to explain it. I'm typically one that doesn't talk in classes, mostly because you look like an idiot if your wrong, and well even though I am fairly opinionated, especially in classes like this, I don't feel like actually defending myself.

I just don't understand why she didn't see me/call on me, it was so strange, and for so long. ahh well....

but that’s way too much, don't want to overload people with my bursts of blogblab
I've actually been doing a lot of solitary thinking lately, and I'm somewhat formulating a philosophy and have been writing it down....it does kinda sound like I'm just high(I'm not), but I think it's cool, maybe I'll go way out and enlighten the Ryan fans to some of these metaphysical thoughts.
Till next time....

THE BREAKS WIN!


 Posted by Hello

After months of anticipation and preparation. We finally did it, played our first live show (not including parties). And we WON our night. It was really crazy, especially because we didn’t' think we did, afterwards, but damn does it feel good. We advance to the final with a chance to win $2000 and to open for a huge act coming through Louis. Hopefully everyone will come down...APRIL 2nd

I'll post more pics from it later

Till Next Time....

Live on Stage..

Well, After a stressful week of midterms and essays, the day is here, The Breaks live on stage at Louis. I'm pumped. We managed to sell 80 tickets, which is unbelievable, and because of it we get to close the show. Can't wait to do this.

Till Next Time….

Its Been A While

Well, yeah, I haven't posted for a while, but I suppose that’s mostly due to how crazy things and I have been lately. I was busy doing my portfolio, which is finally done, and then it was right on into this week. This is probably the busiest week of my post-secondary career (however that only spans one semester) I have a term paper due on Thursday...and a midterm everyday this week to accompany it. I figure its some sort of academic karma, because I scoffed at all the people, who were busy with school, when I wasn't. If that was the case however, Ewan should have about 8 term papers and 10 midterms before the school year is done haha. Speaking of Ewan, him, along with yours truly and Surly Sam Corbett are playing at the Battle of the Band on March 12(this Saturday). Should be good stuff, We've sold around 60 tickets (everyone just hasn't picked them up yet) I think with that, the people that are there for the other bands and people who buy tickets at the door, it should be a pretty good crowd. Most of them will be our friends...and pop punk enthusiasts, maybe we'll be able to convert them to good music. I better be going and working on something, I'm almost just blogging to that I can procrastinate more....
Here's a picture that Anders took last night during our interview with him for the sheaf.
