You're there

I was sitting here, tired and a little depressed. I had decided to not go out to see my friends that had put on this Justin Timberlake cover night with some local Seattle bands. It usually happens that i regret it when i dont go to shows. I always plan on going and then i get really anxious and lazy and decide not to go. Then i regret it later. 

Sometimes when i am tired i feel like there isnt any point in it all. I think about how i dont want to put an effort into anything and all is hopeless. 

That was happening tonight. i thought i would be stuck at the same dead end job that i hate and never make anything of myself and never be happy. 

Then i had some caffeine and Cat Stevens told me,"Don't be shy, just let your feelings roll on by. Don't wear fear, or nobody will know you're there."

Then i got off my ass and went to the show. 

It was just Jared and Reese, Coco and his friend Tyler (i think that's his name). But it was fun. It was great to have a chance to talk to just Jared and Reese without everyone else around. Though, of course, i love everyone else. 

The band that played after Coco told him that he played too long, he was too loud, and he didnt know how to play music. He was genuinely upset about it, i guess. Coco just laughed in his face. Reese was afraid the guy was actually going to try to beat him up after the show. 

Their music was pretty shitty but if i were another musician playing with them, i wouldnt tell them. That's just tacky. 

So, if you are ever in Seattle and know of a band called Berkley Heights, tell them their jerks and their music sucks. He needs to stop singing like Fran Drescher.
