Dusting About

May 3 at 5:52pm

Just realized my last journal entry was from freaking July of last year. Welp, might as well make sure it's not on my base anymore!

So, it's been a long... ten months, I guess. Things have changed, things have stayed the same. I've been widely weaned off of meaningful connection on the Internet, sadly, during this great amount of time. Lots of personal and emotional change afk, I suppose: getting into a serious romantic relationship, getting a job, being accepted to college, etc.. But I will always appreciate that Route 50 has been a place where people get together to share and empathize with stress.

I wish life were nearly as simple as when I signed up. Long days in the chatbox and time spent perusing the gallery, not having to worry about much. But now I do, so I apologize if that's made me distant.

Stay radical, guys and gals.

ICE-ing on the Cake



The countryside's deserted
There's no one on the farm
The suburbs all are sleeping
The earthquakes set off car alarms...

I know I do this seemingly quite frequently, but it's been four-and-a-half years guys. Holy SHIT that's a long time.

I've been kind of a recluse lately, given that I've recently had a lot of tumultuous personal developments (not in a bad way, necessarily, just time-consuming) and not a lot I've wanted to say here on Route 50. I've been thinking about music a lot lately, even been writing some poetry more often, but my thoughts and feelings recently haven't suited the R50 context.

Or maybe I just ran out of snappy .gifs. Wait, that will NEVER HAPPEN.

Kind of want to play The Last Of Us, just because maybe a zombie game could be great.

I know I'm approximately three days late to announce this, but Happy New Year, ladies and gents!

Actually, I didn't say that on the first day of 2015 because I didn't feel anything new. I had a rad NYE party, but there wasn't special about the day after. How did it feel for you guys?

Saw Driftless Pony Club live last night and they DESTROYED. Totally worth $10.

You know what was also worth $10? Meeting and buying merchandise from freaking WheezyWaiter.



Yes, it totally happened. He was, no joke, probably the coolest guy I've ever met, and was rather happy to interact with the only under-21 attendees.

the beard was JUST AS LUSH AS I IMAGINED

I've re-begun listening to Welcome to Night Vale, and it is just as great as I remember. Possibly even better, given that there's even more Cecil-Carlos interplay.

Remember: if you see something, say nothing, and drink to forget...

Welp, it's official: I'll be seeing Driftless Pony Club on the 11th with Pope and my younger brother. (Just to dispel the fan theories, Pope is neither my son NOR my younger brother. Probably my illegitimate second-cousin, though.)

maybe at the show, i can get wheezy-waiter-san to notice me

Sorry for being super absent lately, people. I've been afk for the week by virtue of being a different state with relatives for Thanksgiving.

On the note of belated cliche: I am very thankful for all of you... but especially Pillow. Especially Pillow

And I'm thankful for this .gif... perhaps more than anything:

You know you have a thing for live music when you send an e-mail to a band's personal label to express your disappointment that their show in your city is a 17+ only show in an effort to get them to let you in.
