January is gone and we apparently won.

One twelfth down, eleven twelfths to go!

When I am ninety years old, I will use my iPad to log into my Blogger account and reflect on January, 2010. Education, earthquakes. mushrooms, and more. Here was my month!

SeƱor

I am finishing my senior year at Pitt. After three tours in the back half of 2009, I figured I'd have some time to finish my education whilst writing/recording our new album. I am a college student for the first time in a long while. My classmates are nice, but timid. Some of them are like Super Mario Bros, minus the "Mario". I was invited to a frat party last week. I haven't decided yet if I'll be attending. I would guess probably not.




Quake!


There was a devastating earthquake in Haiti, leaving my brother's girlfriend's brother in law's two sisters stranded without food/shelter/water/orphans. Ashley and I followed the CNN and the grapevine closely. The grapevine consisted of the blog ThatsChurch.com and my brother's text updates. It was mostly Anderson Cooper and Mike Soboslai. Luckily, Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell stepped in to help with the rescue of the girls/orphans. They rescued around 50 of the little and not so little tykes and brought them back to Pittsburgh. I donated some clothes to a Haitian friend of theirs, who returned home also on that mission. He now has a plethora of Bayside and Less Than Jake shirts to wear. I hope he likes ska-punk.



I stayed at Ed Rendell's house once, because his son was in a band we used to tour with (Don't Look Down was the band). I just remember the picture in the living room of Ed Rendell and Bill Cosby. I like to think that his lifelong dream was to have his picture taken with Bill Cosby; becoming mayor was only a piece of the puzzle... a puzzle of Bill Cosby riding a unicorn with Rudy dancing soulfully next to it.



I'm glad that Jamie and Ali are safe. I am also glad that they appeared on Ellen. I really like Ellen. I want to go. Let's go. Let us go.

The Great Divide

Late night television fans were split between Cone and Jay, with most of my generation favoring Cone. After a long debacle, Conan O'Brien stepped down as the short lived host of The Tonight Show. Mr. O'Brien delivered a very moving farewell speech.



Shrooms

I picked up Infected Mushroom from the airport and took them to their show in Pittsburgh. My good buddy Nick said he was in a jam, so I grabbed our van from home and went to the airport! They are an Israeli psycho-trans sensation! They were very nice and happy that Heinz ketchup comes from Pittsburgh. I took them to Primanti Brothers where we applied this principle.



We also played some sick shows in Cleveland, Edinboro, Buffalo, and Morgantown! Maybe I'll update this with pictures and video once I find some.

Thanks for reading.

I love Twitter.


PS It's official. Punchline are recording a new record in the merry month of May.

PSS I once wrote a song about January, (not this January, but last January). We almost went into the studio to record it, but the project fell through. Hopefully you will hear this song next January. It has a sweet time signature change and parodies Auld Lang Syne. I wonder if that song is public domain?

I miss Conan. He might have been the first red-headed man I fell in love with.

Now that it's February, can you write a song about it? Better yet, write one about March (that's my birth month).

Good luck with college. I have no studying tips for you. I have yet to figure out how.

I really liked DLD. Odd story...I found out about DLD while on a plane ride to TX to see the BFS/Simple Plan tour back in like 2001...when I got back to NJ I went to another Simple Plan show in Philly about 3 days later and DLD was opening for them....I was an avid fan from that point. It was cool to see them do so well in a short amount of time with things like the Mountain Dew/MTV contest but then they disbanded and that was sad.

Do u remember jello pudding pops? They were the best. They still make them but they aren't as good as they were back in the day.

Thanks for a fun and enlightening blog entry, see ya soon.

You are very well written, sir! What a wonderful chronicle of your January adventures!

modernshorties said...

What wonderful comments you have left me. I have a good idea for songs for Feb, April, May, and October as well.

Erin said...

You should write a collection of month songs. Or Holiday songs. Either way, I can't wait for the new album.

What are you majoring in at school?

stv, what a lovely blog. such a sweet escape from my dramz filled reality. i think we share an equal love for twitter. it's like having a friend and a confidant (golden girls style) free of scrutiny or judgement, and if there is any kind of hate or unkind words, you can hit that little unfollow button. so much like real life, isn't it! i appreciate all of your words and look forward to new music. i am SUPER excited to hear that you're recording and will be waiting to hear any news concerning the boys and the band. g'luck and hope to see you more in twentyten (since, i only saw you once in ohnine!)

and blog and tweet as much as you can, i'll be reading and tweeting! also, check my fashion blog sometime, not that you're in need of advice or anything ha. just, everyone needs a little inspiration sometimes. thanks for making music that inspires me everyday!

Oh man, I think the first of very many times my brother & I saw you guys was with Don't Look Down. I'm going to test him & see if he remembers that. I know he still has & wears the shirt he bought that night. It's starting to look pretty rough. Excited about a new album!

I miss Coco.

Heinz Ketchup: I went to D.C. over the summer, & they had Heinz that definitely did not look or taste like Heinz, my ketchup-loving friend & I agreed. We decided that it just didn't taste like Pittsburgh.

I truly believe that we have reached the point where technology has become one with our society, and I am 99% certain that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further develops, the possibility of uploading our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could see in my lifetime.
