Eight hours until the MSI concert. Man, I am fucking excited to hell and back! :D


[Edit] I'll be going to the LF meet tomorrow, so I won't be back until tomorrow night. :)

It's midweek again and three days left til [ profile] sphelx and I go to see Mindless Self Indulgence.

Last night was uneventful aside from my absess exploding, which altogether isn't a bad thing except for creating more laundry. I had a sneaky feeling that this would happen, as it was starting to contract on itself (which I assume was due to the anti-biotics). It's no longer as painful as it was a couple of days ago, definately on the way to recovery methinks, but still got to finish the course.

It's that time of year again, so I spent most of last night pondering things; the prior year, where I'm headed in the future, etc, etc. I'm still happy with the road I'm heading down, it's just a shame the goal is so far away (time wise). :/

My trip to America in January is closing fast, only 17 weeks away (four months)! I still need to book the flight though, which is gonna be around £350-£450.

For now, that's it. Laters.

Yes it's Friday today, which means it's almost weekend time! *dance*

I'm a lot happier now, my mother's doing really well and I'm gonna spend most of tomorrow with her shopping and stuff. Saturday night I should get some fursuiting done at [ profile] foxb's, and Sunday will be chill time with [ profile] wolfarlis. :)

What did I do last night? HL2! I'm out of Nova Prospekt now and back in City 17 in the chapter "Anticitizen One", which aside from the numerous amount of Man-Hacks flying around and the "lake" of toxic waste (which the zombie's seem immune to) is a really fun chapter. I reckon I'll have it finished either tonight or later this weekend. :>

Oh yes...


That's all for now, more later!

I wonder if anyone's thought of a Livejournal Opera? I mean, there's more than enough drama going around LJ as it is. In fact I'm sure there's more drama than Jerry Springer. x.x

In other news I won't be on the second VLF show this weekend as I'll be at Fireball Squadron's airsoft site. I will be at the third show, weekend 17th September, as I'll be in London anyway to see Mindless Self Indulgence with [ profile] sphelx.

So I've been listening to this album a lot recently after getting a copy of it a few weeks ago. I so <3 this album, it's probably my fave of the year with MSI's "You'll Rebel To Anything" a very close second.

What I have noticed now as some so-called "die hard" SOAD fans claiming Mezmerize is "too poppy" and they've betrayed their fans and their "metal roots". I have to complete disagree with that notion as Mezmerize is exactly the same as the other albums they have done; it's alternative, it's broken the mould by not conforming to the usual trends of other sub-genres of Heavy Metal whilst injecting current political meaning into their lyrics. Every single song they've wrote is non-conformist, different to the norm of Metal, right from their first self-titled album. Compare SOAD, even their early stuff, with Fear Factory and Metallica and you'll notice that there is a vast difference in the musical style.

SOAD is Alternative Metal, remember that kiddies; they're a metal version of Aphrodite's Child or Jefferson Airplane. If you can't appreciate artists and bands who experiment with their style, then SOAD is not for you.

Friday 16th September afternoon is now booked off. Just need to find a hotel for that night and then everything's sorted for [ profile] sphelx and I to attend the MSI concert. "Excited" doesn't describe how I'm feeling right now. :D

BTW, I also got hold of the follow albums:

Iced Earth - Something Wicked This Way Comes
Lost Prophets - The Fake Sound of Progress
System Of A Down - Mezmerize

Yum. :3
