Huh.

Well, my foray into waitering was briefer than I thought it’d be. One month in, and one of the more senior waiters demands more hours, so I get cut.

…at least I got chicken!

(not that sad about it, honest. Got my summer tech job lined up for after July 4th weekend. Pays better, 40 hours a week guaranteed. Woot woot!)

Sad News.

One of my friends from college just got diagnosed with Lymphoma.

Can’t even begin to imagine what it’s like for him. Guy in the middle of his twenties, just starting out in life, being handed one of the roughest blows one can take.

Thankfully, it’s treatable, and he got diagnosed early. He should recover pretty well.

But it’s one of those things that really makes you thankful that, no matter what your life is like, you can still find something good about it to be grateful about.

Seeing Red.

I have the new Weezer album.

It rocks.

Also, Rolling Stone’s 100 greatest guitar songs are a motherfucking travesty.

“While My Guitar Gently Weeps” belongs nowhere even CLOSE to the top ten.

“Crazy Train” belongs nowhere near 50. (it sits angrily at 51, between Radiohead and The Pixies.

Rolling Stone, please, cut your indie and hippie-music leanings out of the picture, take Omar Rodriguez Lopez off the cover, and allow me to publish my personal, heavily biased list of “100 Most Awesome Guitar Songs” with a bunch of half-naked, heavily tattooed women on the cover, as well as in the place of your regular reviews section.

It’ll be the greatest issue of Rolling Stone ever published, and all you had to do was make it a mixture of softcore pornography and awesome.

(by the way, the following bands, who you deem fit on your list, are hereby banned from mine : The Pixies, Pink Floyd, Television, The Grateful Dead, Blue Cheer, Steely Dan, Sublime, John Mayer, Sonic Youth, Quicksilver Messenger Service, The Mars Volta, The Smiths, My Bloody Valentine, Moby Grape, QOTSA, and My Morning Jacket. The rest are fine.)

P.S. “Crazy Train” is number two on my list. Number one is “November Rain” by G’N’R. Appetite For Destruction is my favorite album by them, but “November Rain” is the most awesome song they have ever written. YES, IT IS MORE AWESOME THAN STAIRWAY.
