08.29.08 → my [3rd set of] boys, cavashawn, played their first headlining show at metro last friday. hotel ahead, coventry, & danger is my middle name, all great locals, opened for them. i was very proud. they did a great job.
i bought the boys arrested development season 3 on dvd for their tour. they were very grateful. :] they're on the east coast now. so far away. :[ but they'll be back in 23 days, playing a show at depaul with ha ha tonka. i'm excited.
jamie, hilary, julie, teegan, cathy, & i went to taco bell, and hilary and julie being the creepy sixteen year old girls that they are "made friends" with two drunk twenty something year old dudes. very funny, but very creepy.
08.31.08 → my [1st set of] boys, treaty of paris, put on a cancer benefit show at metro, with all the proceeds going to the american brain tumor association. they were accompanied by some amazing bands: scott sweeney, house of heroes, company of thieves, & quietdrive.
i was standing outside with jamie and hilary before the show, and i see dan wade walk in with someone who looked very familiar. it was andrew mcmahon. :O i freaked out so badly. i got in there, hunted all the guys down, saying, "i know he's here. bring me to him now," and just got a bunch of, "i don't know who you're talking about." later, i see out of the corner of my perif, andrew walking down the stairs, with mike walking right behind him. obviously, i spazz, and beggggg mike, who just laughs and walks away. about 10 minutes later, he walks out with andrew and points to me. andrew comes over and was like, "hey sam, mike said you wanted to see me?" oh. my. damn. i got to talk to him for a while, which was really nice. he's such a super guy, and he has a really great memory. we were talking about my first (and only) something corporate show, and he was like, "that was in 2003, right? like in september, maybe?" to which i replied, "holy shit. september 23rd, 2003 (i remember because it was the day after my brother's birthday)."
he came out and played keyboard for treaty during "i'll come back" and it was great. kyle dee (from the frantic) almost cried. awww.
( but i won't forget, no, i won't ever forget you...Collapse )
mmm, almost forgot. treaty did a cover of a really great song too.
( lend me your ears, and i'll sing you a song, and i'll try not to sing out of key...Collapse )
09.01.08 → happy labor day. the fam came over. but i was very very tired, so i fell asleep around six and didn't wake up until everyone left. i swear, that wasn't intentional.
09.02.08 → first day of college :O i'm commuting, which blows, first off. i end up being a wee bit late for my writing class, because 1) the buses were off, 2) the elevators were slow, and 3) i couldn't find the room. but i have one of those "hip, young" teachers, who was fine with it. we just got to know each other and stuff, nothing major. that was from 3:30-4:50. then i walked around the city and went to the harold washington library to check facebook, myspace, all that good jazz. next class was "art history i: stone age to gothic," a.k.a. "tuesday night snooze fest." not the best class to be taking from 6:30-9:20 at night.
09.03.08 → second day of college. i didn't have class until 6, but i went down there early, with mom's credit card in hand, to pick up some supplies for my drawing class that night. then i went and got my upass. gotta love unlimited bus and train rides for a year. -thumbs up- i saw devon whilst walking down the street, which was cool. i hadn't seen him in a while. anyway, drawing is an almost four hour long class. the teacher did a lot more talking than we did drawing, which was alright because i, personally, am not a fan of drawing. halfway through, we got a 20 minute break, which meant subway time for lindsay and i. mmm. we actually got out early, which was awesome, but besides the day before thanksgiving, that was the only time.
today, i have writing, again, and u.s. history, with the same time frame as tuesday. i like u.s. history. let's hope being in class for 3 hours doesn't change my views on it.
ugh, and it's raining. please let it stop before i have to get on my bus/train and walk 5 blocks to class.
p.s. kudos if you read all of that.
