Atom Bomb Tears
Curtain call, roll call, enter
the seasons morphing through
the fall of Morpheus in distress
Undress the motors through inherent
void quarters with no value and the
nickel baptized in reclusive magnitude
Atom bomb tears
The fog now clears
One rogue, one laser beam
It tells you a lot about me that I remember the date: I’ve been a Green Day fan since April 7th, 2007.
When reclusive, 12 year-old me saw the lyrics to Boulevard of Broken Dreams on a Piczo site, quickly becoming obsessed as I stumbled into this world of music that resonated with me so deeply… I had no idea that one day I would be uploading this project to my professional website, a successful photography graduate making a documentary about seeing Green Day 42 times.

For those who don't know, Blue is a Japanese 1981 daphne blue Fernandes RST50 "Revival" Stratocaster with a maple neck. It has a 7 screw hole pickguard (as opposed to a 11 hole).
Unfortunately finding this model in daphne blue is next to impossible, I've only ever seen 1 or 2 other ones and they weren't for sale. Because of this I decided to settle on getting one in any colour and just having it repainted. It took me about a week to find the exact model for a decent price. Most places wante
So after many years of saying I'm going to do it, I'm going to recreate Blue.
Using the technical information in this thread I'll be recreating to be as exact to Billie's as possible.
Over the next few months I'll be updating this blog with my process, showing lots of before and after photos and comparing it to the real thing.

It's a very common occurrence for me to go surfing through old blog posts and stuff I've written that I've forgotten about; that's what I was doing literally a minute ago before I came to post this. I was looking through old entries on this blog, reminiscing about old times and shit I thought and wrote, and I realized how much I used to make music based entries. Like I would name the entry after a song I was really into at the moment and thought other people might enjoy as well, and would recap
Someday far faraway in my past, I was a child. Not a child in terms of age, that's something I still carry with me. No; child as in innocent, in so many different ways. A child hasn't been touched or tainted, by skin or by thought. A child is free, to roam without fear and sleep without nightmares that carry something more. A child hasn't lost anything significant, hasn't worked to gain something, hasn't felt despair, love, longing, lust...
I miss it. God, I miss it. So much, too much. I mi
That title of this blog post is a line from a song. Not one I wrote or anything.
But on the subject of things I did write, I deleted my old blog because there was way too much shit I was no longer even remotely satisfied with, and because that's what happens when self-consciousness and impulsiveness are dominant traits in one's brain. I'm starting over with a convenient word doc anyone can download at this link: http://docdro.id/2PKGIO2
Therein lies the poetry that survived the purge
Hello, fellow GDCers. Thanks for all of the well wishes through all of this craziness with my dad.
The latest on my dad is that he will have to go through chemo and radiation starting on September 11th. Surgery was unable to remove all of the cancer, so the doctors now want to do radiation to remove the last of it which they believe they can do. They had to remove one of his jugular veins during the surgery as well as a muscle from his neck to his shoulder that has now limited the ability o

Reach Into The Moon
What if I run now?
Will I ever be okay?
Do I deserve you?
Do I deserve anyone today?
Sometimes visions are all I see
nothing is ever real
The distance seems too far
for me to ever feel
Reach into the moon
That is where I reside
A counter to everything we see
That is where I hide
If you see the moon
hanging from the line
Fear me, fo

Hey, everyone. Here's the latest with my dad and it's a very, very complicated situation.
My dad's cancer is just in the lymph nodes in his neck. He will be having surgery at the Cleveland Clinic Monday morning and the hope is to remove all of the cancer through surgery.
However, here's where our lives get really fucked up.
The latest biopsy confirmed that my dad's cancer was caused by HPV to which my dad dropped the bombshell on our family by confessing that he had an affair 17 y

This Rosemary Sky
As the sun shines over the hills
and the dawn is pierced
by the bolt of the damned
The wind caresses my skin
with the needle in your life
calling you in on the knife
Tread not the path of hate
The boat set sail
to tear down the veil
This rosemary sky
once brought a tear to my eye
When I pulled away
from all my darkened days
and took grip
I sit on my knees and I grasp at the flesh of my palms. My nails sink into the soft mold of skin and meat, no pain. I am swelling, filling up with warm, pounding blood, plump as the ripest plum, ready to burst and paint the intricate fur of the rug underneath with the juice in my veins. At the same time, my pudgy body is sinking, melting into a puddle of human goo, indistinguishable. My nails are growing at an alarming rate, weaving through my palms and into my arms and beyond, building their ow
Today the Atlanta Journal-Constitution newspaper published a story on me in their “Weight Loss Success Stories” section. An unscaled photo of my neck/chest area highlights the top of the story, so that obviously makes me proud. LOL. I was hoping they would include my quote about how big a role music has played in my weight loss journey, followed by my undignified plea for (free) Music Midtown concert festival tickets. I obviously can’t afford to buy them! All of my disposable income is tied up i

I entertain the thought of you
won't you listen to me?
I never knew just who I was
until I wished I could see
I tie you up and you lie me down
in this cosmic debris
I want to hear your call
won't you sing to me?
Oh, I know just what I need
you're a siren, make me bleed
I'll share my treasure and the peak
of the night and sinner's entropy
Hey, everyone. Just wanted to provide those of you who were reaching out to me and my family an update on my dad's health.
We learned today that he does in fact have cancer again even after being labeled "cured". Where the cancer is in we don't know yet until a PET scan is done sometime here soon (date TBA).
The hope is that this cancer is just at his one lymph node and they can remove it surgically. The surgery will be done at the Cleveland Clinic where both my sister and brother-in-l
Perhaps this is a dorky request, but I figure since we're all music enthusiasts here, why not?
The composer of the first three Tomb Raider games is hosting a Kickstarter project to revamp the soundtrack with a full orchestra, to be recorded at Abbey Road studios in London. I wrote up a summary regarding the project over on the Tomb Raider Deviantart page I admin if anyone's interested in more details: http://tombraiders.deviantart.com/journal/The-Tomb-Raider-Suite-News-686956563
New lyrics. Enjoy.
Once more feathers fall
as you wake again, another bore
Time and time again
moving nowhere and attempting to change score
Will someone hold you now?
Will you make it somehow?
We are holy
We are unholy
We are unholy in our flaws
And I'm nervous
And I'm anxious
And I'm anxious for the end
But how bad can it be?
How clearly can you
Five years ago, my dad was diagnosed with Stage 4 throat cancer after never smoking a single cigarette in his life. The cancer was treatable and he came out on top of it after a few months of chemo and radiation.
Ever since then he's regularly been checked for cancer and everything's been clean for years. They labeled him cured.
Well, after having a sore neck for about a month or so, my dad went to have a biopsy done today and the initial diagnosis is cancer. Fuck. Why
