This is a difficult question, but it would either be My Chemical Romance or Lydia.  They would both have to play their entire discography - Desert Song would need to be present, and there would need to be a full band performance of A Story for Supper for the latter, with Mindy, not Maria.  Her and Haley full band would also be fantastic.

I'm way into Dear and the Headlights lately.  I'd always kind of heard them since my friends like them, so I'd hear them on roadtrips, but I stole a bunch of music from one of them this weekend (Courtney Marie Andrews, more of the Honey Trees that I didn't have) and I got both albums and I love it.  I want to do dirty things to this guy's voice.  Unf.

I was doing that music/Lydia meme, and I sort of forgot.  There's more, but there's two songs that have summed up this summer of my life more adequately than the others.  This is the first. 

I just came to say, you'll never see me again, and I miss you already )

Feeling a bit lost right now.  Three more days.
chokethewind: (Default)
In the past two weeks I've driven 3000 miles, seen Lydia in 8 different cities 8 different days, heard songs I thought I'd never hear in person, and turned 22 years old.

In three weeks I move to Tempe.

Back to work and obsessing over things I shouldn't be obsessing about and feeling sad. I miss tour.

I don't miss the humidity though.  Seriously.  What the heck.
chokethewind: (KH // This is yours)
Leaving tomorrow to Phoenix, and then on Tuesday we leave for New Mexico.  It's alllll happening.  I'll be gone for ten days. I haven't packed or bought anything yet.  I have problems.

Before I move onto MY SONG OF... RIGHT NOW, tour calender~

Jul 20 - The Launch Pad, Albuquerque, New Mexico
Jul 22 -The Conservatory, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Jul 23- The Loft, Dallas, Texas
Jul 24 - Emo's, Austin, Texas
Jul 25 - Sam's Burger Joint, San Antonio, Texas
Jul 26 - Mango's, Houston, Texas
Jul 27 - Spanish Moon, Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Jul 28 - One Eyed Jacks, New Orleans, Louisiana
Intense.  I'm not so stoked the only off day we have is in Oklahoma; I wish it were in San Antonio.  I love San Antonio.  Austin's downtown scene is awesome too; kitschy little Korean place, we will see you again.  Of course... I am stoked out of my mind to see New Orleans.  It's a 24 hour straight drive back, which I am less than happy about, but whatever, NEW ORLEANS.  We weren't originally going to go to Baton Rouge or New Orleans, but since we were so (relatively) close, we added it.  I get to spend my birthday in New Orleans. At least part of it, before the drive from hell, of course.  

Looking at that, I guess I understand why people think we're insane.  But this will be the last Lydia tour, and this is probably going to be the last mult-city tour we do, even for other bands we love.  After this, I think it's time to be real grown ups.  One last hurrah though.

Time for a Margot song.
And the girls are getting sick, of snorting coke up in the bathroom while their boyfriends pick up chicks. Darling, I'm lost. )

So now that my computer lives~

And by meme, I mean, it's not really a meme, it's something I've been doing while my computer's been broken, BUT FEEL FREE TO JOIN IN.  Songs I've been listening to repeatedly during these past few months.  Nothing entirely groundbreaking to see here, really.  It's kind of a "songs I've been listening to repeatedly/ Lydia will no longer be a band so I must write down how these songs make me feel" thing.

Spoiler alert: these will all be nearly Lydia songs.
You will never waste my time )
chokethewind: (HTTYD // This is my)
Lost my paid account.  Until I rectify the computer situation, I probably won't renew it.  HANDY EDITING COMMENT TOOL, I DO MISS YOU HOWEVER.  /woe

We bid on new shifts.  I got a stupid shift with stupid days off.  I always get a stupid shift, but I usually get Fridays off.  Not so.  DENIED.  I'm still the last person in my bid group, so I get leftovers.  It's still a stab in the gut though.  Fail.  Next week will be my last Friday off for a very long time, so I will savor it.  And my next vacation is the week after the Lydia tour.  Trying to trade it, but with my luck that will not happen.  Two weeks of not working.  I'm actually really scared, but I'm working nearly every single day until the middle of July (in the midst of a fourteen day stretch, heyo) so I'm trying to soothe my nerves.  Not going to Texas is not an option.  It sounds stupid, but it's important to us, so I suppose it's not that stupid.

Still torn up about Lydia.  They are my band and I both excited for new music and so sad it will be over.  Life will go on.

Started replaying the first Kingdom Hearts with my little brother.  THE FACT THAT I CANNOT SKIP CUT SCENES STILL MAKES ME WANT TO KNIFE BABIES IN THE FACE. Rageeee.
chokethewind: (Lydia //  And I stole your soul)

Lydia is breaking up. I .. am sad without words.

Not the text I wanted to wake up to in the morning.

Computer still not working.  Woe is me.

I have been obsessed with Pandora lately.  I've heard about it but never really used it, and then I found out my Blackberry has an app for that can also use Pandora so I made an account and ah! I love my Lydia radio station like nobody's business.  It hardly plays Lydia anymore since I've added so much, but ah!  It's so amazing.  I loooveeee it.  I lost my good pair of headphones so I'm using the stupid earbuds the Blackberry came with until I can afford a new set of earmuffs.  I hate earbuds.  They never stay in my ears.  Ever.

I also love my Blackberry.  I have a app, a maps app, visual voicemail, an app that makes text messaging look like it does on the iPhone, an app that tells me when I'm closest to the nearest coffee place, an app that will read me my text messages if I'm driving so I don't have to look at my phone, a Spanish-English translator, and a Facebook app.  The Facebook app came pre-installed, which was nice, but I've been taking everything from the app store that's free.  Plus the fantastic Pandora app.  I'm just like woooo. 

My little sister and I went to the Asian market today.  I made her look at the durians and the dead fish and bought her roasted peas and ramune.  I like to feel like I'm exposing her to different things~

My new shift sucks.  I like not having to work until the afternoon, but then it means I'm off at 1am and it takes me half an hour to get home, another half hour to get in bed and something else to eat since I don't ever eat a real lunch as I don't get my break until, oh, eight thirty pm, and then somewhere in the vicinity of two to three hours to actually wind down.  I was always usually in bed by 4am, but now I'm not getting to sleep until 5 or 6.  By the time I get done with this shift the people at the McDonald's are going to know how many creams and sugars I like in my coffee.  Working these hours just makes me so tired.

I got a pink cupcake candle for Valentine's Day from my family.  My room smells like a cupcake!  That automatically makes everything better. :)

I have downloaded gimp. \o/  I miss Photoshop and think the gimp interface is unfriendly as hell, but I am far too lazy to navigate torrents. Finally replaced the banner with something a little more me, got a new icon to match, which I'm not going to use for this, since it's the new default so now the rest of my entries will have it since LJ sucks with icons. Ladeda.  Cleaned up my journal the past few days, icon and profile wise. Should probably get a new layout since the banner is an eyesore with it, but I am still lazy. Maybe I'll just tinker with the colors.  To be perfectly safe, new banner is from Days, so if you don't want to be spoiled for anything, stay away from my journal.  ;)

Going to Phoenix tomorrow for the last Lydia show of the year, which makes me indefinitely sad, but ah well, new record I hope. Btw, someone please humor me and tell me how you upload entire files to mediafire or megaupload, not just single files? Is that possible? I tried zipping it and that didn't work, and I have them all stored in the same folder, but you can't just download the folder, you still have to do it singularly, which is more than annoying. At least, to me. >.> 

I've been talking a lot lately.  About nothing particularly important either. Hrm.
chokethewind: (Luke-- I'll put up a smile and make it)
So you should all know I'm in dead love with this band called Lydia for whatever reason, and this past week they released an EP with four acoustic tracks from their first album.  It has songs we've been dying to hear for forever, and it wasn't supposed to be leaked on the internet since they recorded the EP to sell at shows to make up money they had robbed from them this past tour. :|  But it was leaked, and I was trying to be a good girl, but I couldn't and so I've been listening to it rather obsessively (I'll still get the actual EP when I go to the show on Saturday.. so there) and I just have to say that I freaking love this band. So much.

It is my life aspiration to one day write a story that feels even marginally like this song does. 

This is called A Camera Lens and Careful Days.

And I'm done.

chokethewind: (Lal- All I could feel)
Does someone biting their own nails turn anyone on?  I swear.  We always have creeps call and so it doesn't bug me so much as amuse me, but this guy took my name and then we chatted about flights for few moments, and then he brings up nail biting and asks if I do and I answered truthfully and he takes this long, shuddery moan, tells me to hold, and then I can hear panting.


Does nail biting turn anyone in their right mind on?  I don't understand.  I see some weird things, but nail biting?  Come on.  I want to get an alias like woah, orz.  These people having my name is starting to trip me out.

There is a con here in October.  During Halloween. I will be cosplaying.  I am officially a nerd.  The KH tattoo wasn't enough.  Leeroyy Jennkiins.

I'm also beyond pumped for September, because lotsa awesome things are gonna happen in September.  Well really, just Lydia tour in Texas and HIMYM comes back, but that's all important stuff now.  It's all trippy to me that it's nearly December.  Well, I mean, it's still months away, but it feels so close.  I don't like this time jumping around fast thing at all.

chokethewind: (Luke-- I'll put up a smile and make it)
I feel like I've been so busy the past couple of days but looking back, I can't seem to remember what I've done except work (a lot), see Harry Potter, and hang out at my friend's house.  Nothing has been accomplished.  I need to update my fic because it's been like two weeks (which is ridiculous) and do RP stuff and school things and.... I haven't been doing any of it, but I've not had a lot of time to get on my computer, which doesn't make any sense because I haven't been doing anything and I don't know anymore.  That will change this week.  In the middle of an eight day straight stretch at work right now and have been working shifts that I'm not used to so after tomorrow I drop back into my own schedule, which I know how to work.  So .. yea.  I mean, it's noon time.  I've been awake for two hours already.  This never happens.  Hoping to update fic by tomorrow.  I just need to edit it.  I fail.

I cut some lady off at this four way stop earlier (it was totally her right away but she took forever to move so I thought I had missed something but nope, she was just real slow on the uptake) and she made elaborate arm gestures in my direction.  Like... it was a long, slow pass I made by her and she waved her arms sooo hilariously. I laughed at her, and she flipped me off.  I suppose I deserved it.

Also.... LYDIA TOUR IN SEPTEMBER!!  I'm so stoked. 
chokethewind: (Default)
By the way, CNN

Fail.  They corrected it right away, but it was one of those PICS OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN moments.
Barcelona was last night.  I got to hear my title sung.  They were utterly fantastic.  It was fun.  Really, really fun.  I wanted to go to Tempe today for the show tonight but I am broke. :/  It was really an awesome show.  I could probably gush for like, fifteen hours about how much I loved it but I think it's pretty clear I'm sorta crazy by now.  And there's weather in Dallas.  Today was a screaming day.  I'm better at taking it now.  No matter how much I want to tell people to suck it.  I mean, honestly.  It's the plane we don't want to lose.  Please, feel fry to fly in a thunderstorm.  I insist. 

Lydia in 25 days.  So.  Stoked. 

chokethewind: (Roxas&Axel- I'm going to eat)
I should be doing something productive.  I'm trying to work on what I'm working on. 

Like that made any sense.

Whatever, I wrote a drabble you can see here.

It is 238 words of complete nothing!  Nothing! NOTHING!

I have Luke and Axel at [ profile] a_facility  now.  Does that equal productive?

Also, I did bake the cookies.  They are downstairs.  Still on the fence if I should take them to our new neighbors or not. I don't know how to tell them I'm not trying to poison their children without sounding like I really am.  My mom says they'll think I'm a freak.  Other people think it would be a nice gesture full of good will!  I'm more on the "they'll think I'm a freak" side, but Idk.

I also don' t know how it happens but every other song on my iTunes shuffle is Lydia and that is utterly fantastic.

chokethewind: (Riku-I know)
Drunken lj'ing.

Just like drunk dialing, only, without the voice.

Missed the Lydia show in San Antonio today because the website for the venue FUCKING LIED said they'd be on much, much later in the evening so we showed up an hour after the doors open (because 8 is NOT LATE) and they had gone on fifteen minutes after the doors had opened.  Hence why I have time to be drunken lj'ing.

Srsly venue, srsly.

But, we are going to SXSW tomorrow.  In Austin!  Texas!  Not San Antonio!  San Antonio is scary!  But there was a max museum!  I took a picture with Abraham Lincoln!  Motherfucking Abraham Lincoln!

And for tonight, we are drowning the sorrows in Starbucks.

And other stuff obviously, since I am drunk baha.

Spring Break 09!

That's an inside joke.  I'm sorry you do not understand.  <3

chokethewind: (Sora-Flail)
I'm going to


Yea, there a lot more things to be excited about really, rather than Texas. xD 

Hitting up Dallas, Denton, and San Antonio. 


chokethewind: (Lydia- Sing like you just might drown)

March 14:  Lydia at Club Dada, in Dallas.
March 15:  Lydia at Rubbergloves, in Denton.
March 16:  Lydia at the White Rabbit, in San Antonio.
March 21:  Lydia at the Clubhouse, in Tempe.

Gonna be seeing a lot of Texas in a ten days.  I wish I'd been able to go to San Francisco last November, but this will be just lovely too. <3

chokethewind: (Echelon-I imagine)
So I get Lydia next month, Barcelona in May, Warped (with Chiodos omg) in June, and Billy Talent in July.  Plus a new 30 Seconds to Mars album, a new Envy on the Coast album, and a new MCR album... these are all wishes but we try to stay positive in these parts...


That's all. :3

Except seriously, you should listen to Barcelona. I recommend "It's About Time" and then moving on to "Stars." They're soothing and ridiculous.  And I've said this a thousand times before, Lydia too.  Start with "Hospital" and then progress to "I Woke Up Near the Sea."  :3  Do it.

Gah, it's concert season again. Yaaaaay.

chokethewind: (Roxas&Axel- Memory)
Title: Dust and Glass Streets (2/2)
Rating: R
Word Count: 5, 078
Characters: Roxas, Axel, Demyx
Warnings: Swearing, character death
Summary: Whoever hires waiters for the graveyard shift is mentally unstable.  That's what Roxas thinks.  When he meets Axel, that is. (AU)
Author's Note:  I met an ambulance driver at my work two months ago.  It took me awhile to figure out what I wanted to say about that.

The inspiration and title came from the song "A Story for Supper" by the band Lydia.  I've uploaded and you can download the demo version here-- if you like what you hear, check them out.  They are amazing.


Roxas’s picture had been subtly changing—now it sprouted to well over seven feet, grew fangs, and from its back sprang leathery wings. Axel x 2. Axelzilla. The Bride of Axel. Axel: Large and in Charge. Axel just wasn’t some harmless schizophrenic who would cost society millions—he was a full-fledged lunatic. )
