Monthly Review: January

Happy New Year, bitches! I started the New Year rather mellow. I didn't drink much but I watched other get pretty trashed. Since October I have started drinking less. Not because I'm a party-pooper but for my health. I reached a point where I know I shouldn't drink so much and so frequently. With my drinking habits you'd think I have a wooden leg. I can out drink most of my male friends. So, my year started a lot healthier.
The New Workout Plan Along with drinking less I Have started working out again. My weight was getting me down, so I finally decided that I need to take action. Along with exercising regularly, I'm eating less as well. I'm hoping to drop a few by my birthday in April. As a result, I am feeling much happier these days and my self-esteem has shot up!
Headbanging January saw the return of Tsunami Bomb! They put on a great last show, and I'm glad I was there to witness it. Nothing says Happy New Year like an awesome concert.
Also, Trent Reznor leaked over 400gb of HD quality video from his Lights in the Sky Tour. I have the space to spare but I have no idea how to video edit. T Rizzle continues to amaze me.

January was a pretty awesome month. Nothing terrible has happened, yet. I just hope it stays that way.

I am an engine, I won't break down.

music: Tsunami Bomb - Irish Boys

Tsunami Bomb has not played live since 2005. Their break up was sudden and it was a blow to the local music scene in Northern California. Tsunami Bomb broke up due to their disillusionment with the music industry. They were very vocal about it in their music and were unafraid to voice their opinions. But due to record label strains (e.g. 4 Robots and an Evil Scientist) and other elements, they broke up. On January 17, 2009, Tsunami Bomb decided to come together for one night in benefit of their friend who has cancer. And I was lucky enough to get tickets to the show. I haven't seen them play since 2004, so I was more than excited to see them play once last time.

The Phoenix Theatre in Petaluma was kinda janky. It looks like it could fall apart any second. There was a mezzanine area but we decided not to stay. On the floor there were 2 quarter pipes, one slightly taller than the other. Since one person was sitting at the top of the taller one we decided to dock there. I am the most unathletic person I know, so it was hilarious trying to get onto the quarter pipe. The first time, I fell and slid on my ass. The second time I barely made it. From the angle I was at, I could see everything! The stage was clear and the sound wasn't that bad. I would have liked to be in the pit but I am way too short and the show would be unenjoyable from there.
The first band to come on was the Action Design. The Action Design consists of 2 ex-members of Tsunami Bomb, M on vocals and Matty on bass. They only did a 20 minute set because M has to sing for an hour when she goes on with Tsunami Bomb. They opened with 10 Feet of Snow, one of my favorite songs. After the first two songs my voice was hoarse, my voice was deeper than my boyfriend's. They played all their upbeat songs like, The Question Is How, Connect/Disconnect, and Landmines. It was better seeing them this time because when I saw them at Warped Tour I could barely hear M. I was sad that they had such a short set but the headliner was Tsunami Bomb.
The next band up was Nothington. They had a lot of Social Distortion influences in their music but they were a pretty forgettable band. All their music sounded the same and I was falling asleep. The third band up was The New Trust. These guys were terrible. They are just as bad, if not worse, than Foxy Shazam. The guitarist did this weird thing with her leg. She'd kick it up like dogs do after they pee. It was odd. They were not my cup of tea.
Finally, Tsunami Bomb came on stage and the floor was flooded. They opened with Dawn on a Funeral Day and the crowd went wild. Circle pits were forming, and they were HUGE. The entire crowd was singing along to every song. Not one person was quiet, it was such an amazing thing to witness. They played songs from all their albums and EPs. The second song they played was Invasion from Within off their EP of the same name. By then, my boyfriend was eager to get into the pit. Kids were flying up in the air and getting thrown on stage. Security was on their toes that night!
After some band member changes, Tsunami Bomb stopped playing Lemonade, a song that is very popular among TB fans. When I saw them in 2004 they refused to play Lemonade. So, when they came back on for their encore, M asked her friend to come on stage to help with the next song. At one point Tsunami Bomb had two female singers, M being one. The crowd went nuts when they heard the bass intro to Lemonade. It's not a very fast song but the pit was growing and more people were crowd surfing. The show ended with ...Not Forever and everyone was singing. It was a good song to end with. The night was full of energy. Agent M gave it her all and it was the best Tsunami Bomb had ever sounded. I am so happy I was able to see them play their last show.
I was dreading getting off the quarter pipe. After my failed attempt to get on, the last thing I wanted to do was get down. But I made it down ok, I did a little human bowling. My voice was hoarse and my arm was tired from pumping my fist so much. This was a great show to start the year off with.
This band is very important to me. Their music has gotten me through some very rough times. Take the Reins gave me the courage to leave home even though it didn't guarantee emancipation. ...Not Forever helped me get over those "friends" that were never there for you and eventually betrayed you. 3 Days and 1000 Nights and Lemonade were the first songs played by Good Chicken Militia (my high school band). Their music continues to inspire me and gives me the strength to continue living my life. So many 'Thank Yous' to my favorite band!

I'm so excited for tonight! Tsunami Bomb has reunited for one last show to benefit a friend with a brain tumor. I was lucky enough to score tickets for the show. It was announced earlier this week that the show has sold out and tickets are nearly impossible to find. Needless to say, I'm damn glad I got my tickets when I did.
Not only are Tsunami Bomb playing, the Action Design (my new favorite local band) is opening. I'm just hoping M's voice doesn't die since she'll be doing two shows tonight.
It's been years since I've seen TB, 2004 to be exact. So, here's to hoping that the show night rocks!
I'll be updating my facebook and twitter throughout the night.

So, I guess this is my first real update. Its been awhile since I've ventured back into livejournal. I miss it, kinda.
Not a lot has happened to me since I last updated. I'm still with the same guy. I still live with my sister and her fiancée. The only new thing would be my sister;s fiancées kids are living with us now. They have got to be the most annoying children I have ever met. They can't seem to follow directions, they have no consideration for other people. It's aggravating and I don't know how else to make them understand! I just don't care anymore, it's not my problem.
I am moving again. I'm finally moving to Southern California. My boyfriend got a job offer that he couldn't deny. So this summer I'm going to be a Southern Californian. I will miss San Francisco. There really is no other place like San Francisco. The atmosphere there is different. The only other place where I have gotten a similar vibe is Melrose. Melrose reminds me of Haight St. But I'm excited that I will be living with my boyfriend.
So, that is the bulk of my current life. Nothing overly exciting. But this time next week I'll be rocking out in Petaluma. I'm going to see Tsunami Bomb and The Action Design! I'm super excited!
