sorry i've been kind of MIA recently. the studio i'm interning at has a high profile artist there right now, so the interns are running ragged and i've been there probably about 60 hours this week. at least i'm getting paid, i guess.

no i can't tell you who the artist is, not until the album is released anyway. i had to sign a confidentiality contract. but i'll get a production credit on it! that'll be great on my resume.

now that all that's said, though...

i got a job offer today.

all the haranguing and schmoozing and resume-peddling i did at the convention finally paid off. skylock studios in nyc called me today and wants me to replace their current engineer, who's moving in a few months. like, not an internship, not an assistant, for some reason they want me to be their engineer. i'm going in to meet them and their board and equipment tonight after interning. i was hoping to get an extended internship offer at my current studio, but shit, this is even better. i'll be making salary. they said i don't even have to finish my degree, but dads pitched a fit when i told them that so i'll still be here next year (just maybe not in the refuge, but that's for other reasons that i'm not mentioning yet). at least i'm almost done so i can have a parttime schedule next semester, commute to work. and i'll be in the city all summer, dads are already looking for a place i can stay for a few months.

they've found a house up here and will be all moved in before semester ends, by the way. nick will be teaching civil rights, and copyright law next semester, and they're looking into letting him teach a few constitutional law courses in the spring so yeah if you have any interest in learning from my dad, there you go. and remember that his last name is not the same as mine. and that these aren't easy-A classes either. he won't go easy on you just 'cause you've partied with him okay.

anyway. i'm really excited. i won't be making a lot of money, not enough to cover living in the city without dads' help anyway, but it's a start, isn't it? it's enough of a start that i'm not so worried about some things anymore.

but i guess we'll leave it at that. there are lots of games afoot that i can't really talk about now.

and just because everyone seems to get so offended when i do this:

“You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect - you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break - her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there". -Bob Marley

Dads just informed me that they're flying back into New York on Saturday and staying the rest of the week to look for houses or apartments in the city, so everyone should be prepared.

They're insisting on a party to celebrate the fact that they're finally getting married. So. Engagement party is at my suite, Saturday night at 10. They want to see everyone dressed up and fancy, so comb your hair and wear something pretty. Gifts are certainly not required, they can buy their own shit, but if you feel obligated, they won't turn away booze or a hug.

There'll be food and music. I'd meant to ask them if fancy clothes meant they wanted it to be a fancy party with like dinner tables and shit, but they hung up on me because Dancing With the Stars was coming on and haven't called me back yet. Whatever, there will also be booze so I'm sure even if it starts nice, it'll end up being our usual fare.

I hope everyone sees this. They'd be sad if no one came.

i've got your knife inside my back
i've got your rope around my neck
i feel the poison in my veins
corrode and away my brains

opinions on this one too, if you have them. or not. i don't care i guess.

look what i can do

All of the Drugs
And she takes her pills, and she tells her lies
And she breaks my heart, and breaks her word
But I still act surprised

Small Cuts
They just want attention.
We all want attention.
A beautiful kiss and a sin to confess

If You Like It Or Not
I don't want to explain
I just want to dance
On the graves, on the graves
Of every girl
That I knew before you
They're all dead to me too

i have no comments except that the mixes are rough and incomplete. just please tell me what you think. overall. music, lyrics, whatever. be honest.

We're back at the dorm, but probably not available because brielle's brother is here too. yup.

I really really really need this week to be over, apparently.

accentuate the positives, noah.

oh drama all over my flist, what the hell else is new.

here is a nice break from that:

convention doesn't open for my pass until tomorrow, so we've got all day to play tourist... but the bed is so nice and comfy, compared to those awful things in the dorms.

i feel a need to remind everyone that the convention is hosting free club parties every night. with open bars. oh yes.

i think shopping first. save the partying for after dark. god i love this place and i love the company i'm keeping.

90 minute layover in phoenix. look at this shit. that's the downtown area here! that's it. the fuck is that. and all that sky.

the desert is so weird. chapstick and lotion are first on the to-buy list right now.

in two hours we'll be in vegas and it'll only be two o'clock. and there's a convention party at Tao, Lavo or Marquee every night, so we'll get free entry and sometimes an open bar.

but you know, you guys enjoy italy. because while it may not be a foreign country, this is still our playground the rest of the week:

... you know, i still can't believe i'll be spending the whole week in vegas with my girlfriend. when did this become my life?!

oh well. it's a great life.

Just realized two things:

1) I can't LARP on Sunday because I will already be in Vegas. Not a huge deal, I guess, we just have so few sessions that I hate to miss one.

2) I don't know how good my self-control will be.

You can all take that however you want.

Still. I can't wait to leave.

(oh and 3) we're flying so i will have to figure out how to get certain substances when i get there. none of you happen to have contacts, do you?)

I just realized that I'm 21 now, so I can actually do shit when I'm in Vegas next week. I haven't been back since freshman year, and even though that was a crazy fucking year, I wasn't able to get much done in Sin City.

But now. Oh now. A whole world of booze and nightclubs and debauchery is open. 

Fuck Italy, Viva Las Vegas, baby.
