November | December

I’ve been pretty awful about sitting my ass down and making a proper post; I’d really like to catch up before the New Year. What I would really like is to get back into the habit of taking my camera around with me again, but the weekends are mostly redundant and not really worth documenting. Bars, shows, shows, bars. It’s been fun, but like I said – redundant. I’ve also been exhausted pretty much all of the time, working 40+ hour weeks and making a dash to get home and ready to head out Friday nights and crashing over Stephen’s all weekend. I leave little free time other than weekday nights where I’m often too lazy and tired to think.

This month has been crazy busy at work, as is usually the case near the end of the month and especially the year. Tuesday I worked from 10:30am to 12:30am the following morning, and I’ll be waking up early tomorrow morning to put in some extra hours. Just thinking about that paycheck. I just got over a pretty wicked flu last week, which ironically, I coordinated my sick days with my boss so I wouldn’t lose my last 8 hours by splitting two half days back to back from home – and I ended up actually being sick; I jinxed myself, but it couldn’t have worked out better.

Anyway, all that is left now is pictures of the past two months! I hope by posting it will motivate me to continue, because I miss this. It’s pretty much my only internet presence these days.

The Brass Mug: Shot | The Hub: Funeral System

It’s been a minute since I’ve updated. Been busy with the usual, work. Overtime, doctor’s appointments, metal shows. I’m usually spending my weekends out in Tampa hanging out with the guys. A couple weeks ago we scouted locations to do a photo shoot for their record release (hopefully in October). Last weekend, there was a get together at Giancarlo’s house. He made homemade blood sausage and ham empanadas from scratch. Insanely good. We drank, played Mario Kart, and watched Austin Powers, lol. They headed down to Miami today to play a show at Churchill’s. Pretty crazy, what with a category 5 hurricane rolling in.

Storage Unit: Street Weave | Funeral System

I’m still recuperating from this past weekend; too much cheap whiskey, beer, and hair thrashing. I had a really good time though. Eli, Adam, and Jenn’s band, Street Weave, played their second show on Friday at a friend’s storage unit. Vomit Sawdust, Funeral System, and Grave Ascension also played. Aside from that, it was a pretty tame weekend. This Friday Shot is playing The Brass Mug, so I’ll be scrambling to get out there after work at the end of the week. Shows, shows, shows!

I’m working on trying to figure out what the hell to do with my week off in October.

fuck im exhausted

Largo | Orlando

There hasn’t been too much going on these past few weeks. Or rather, there has been, it’s just been more or less the same thing (not complaining!)

Last weekend, Funeral System, Grave Ascension, and Vacuous Depths played out in Largo at Sneaky’s Bar. I snapped a few photos, but it wasn’t the best venue as far as aesthetics and lighting goes. I’ve been feeling socially exhausted, I spent most of the night relaxing outside by myself. Randomly, there was a “zazz” band playing, it was unique, kind of chaotic and lent a surreal feel to the night. It was pleasant.

This past Friday, I spent the night with Stephen, Eli, Jenn, Chloe and Adam. We hit up the arcade then stopped by Legion on the way home. Stephen headed to Jacksonville Saturday afternoon as Shot was playing a show that night, so I had to cut my weekend short with him.

Sunday, Danielle invited me and Chloe up to Orlando for a cook out.

I haven’t been feeling well, so I ended up calling out of work sick yesterday, for the first time since September of last year. I slept for about 14 hours, I guess I had a fever because when I woke it had broken and I felt like I had a pillow stuffed inside my head and an elephant on my chest.

I spent the evening with Stephen and Eli at a local strip club; then we cooked out and cuddled up to Night of the Living Dead. When he puts his arms around me and I bury my face in those curls, I feel furthest from the grave and it quiets the constant commotion inside my head. I would never dare tell him how much that comforts me.

Funeral System is playing in South Florida this coming weekend. Stephen invited me to go, but I’m just not in the mood to be around that many people for that extended amount of time. I could probably use a quiet, detoxing weekend in.

Fourth of July 2017

This is my first -official- personal post since having to uproot and move from LiveJournal. I feel (kind of) like I’m betraying LiveJournal, as that has been my “home” for my photo journaling, on and off, since 1999. However, I feel like I became somewhat stagnant with sticking to the familiar and fell into the habit of using archaic tools. Jon helped hook me up with my old domain and a place to host; I’m thankful with him for that! This is my first attempt at building a blog, so this is the bare bones of trying to tweek something into a decent place to post my photography, book reviews, etc. I’ve struggled a little bit with the available themes, but I think I managed to find something workable.

Anyhow…

Drunken pictures from (mostly) the 4th of July weekend and beyond!
