So tonight was the the Grand Rapids Zombie Walk and to be honest I was a bit disappointed.  I mean, I was quite surprised on how many people had gathered but we only walked around the park and across the bridge. I was genuinely hoping for a longer evening exploring around the downtown area as a messed up zombie. The group I was with consisted of a stranger with candy, a  zombie ninja (except she got called a terrorist a few times), a dead basketball player and a mauled volunteer. 

As for the other zombie's I saw a lot of nuns, doctors and clowns. BUT there was a really kick-ass samuri zombie that was a good 6'5'' and a group of zombies that looked like they had died at a party.

To be perfectly honest preparing for the Zombie Walk was much more fun than the actually walk. C and I spent a good hour just tearing and decorating my shirt. On top of that, did you know that hooker red lipstick makes awesome fake blood stains?  Plus if you smear a little brown and an eyeshow around it looks like you have rolled in dirt.

Laptops I hate thee

So after months of being stuck using my roomates laptop or a school computer I finally managed to speed up my brother's which I felt the need to confiscate (mine should be on its way to HP), plus he doesnt use it, except for porn. After manually deleting various naughty pictures, PC games and unused, poorly downloaded programs I managed to get the laptop to boot up within 5 minutes instead of the 30 it was taking.

As now, after spending an hour and half at ITS I still cant get online. Apparently malware had broken my connection with the internet and all I had to do was update my windows and AVG virus software. I performed the necessary updates the internet was still unavailable. According to the college network I need to update my Norton software ....well school network, I DONT USE NORTON! and I cant call the help desk now and must wait until tomorrow....damnit.

OK sorry

Sorry Internet for I have failed you. Over the break I did not make a second blog and write various music reviews. bad, bad me. BUT I do plan on doing this and I will get it done.... eventually. So for now I will just give a story that happend to me over break.

Saturday I had to drive my exchange brother over to a friends house the middle of the woods. Now my hometown is Town A and N had to go to town B, a little bitty farmarea 35 minutes away. Well the drive was nothing but the house I dropped him off at was f**king weird. Not only was it in cow country, in fact we drove past a dairy farm ( I know the owners) in order to get to this house.

So we turn on this random ass dirt road in the middle of nowhere  and drive inot the woods. From there we turn on another random road in more dense woods and look for a random wooden mailbox. Once found  the long drive has a car graveyard besides it and wraps around a big tree. a pole barn and outdoor dog kennel are on one side and this tiny log cabin (like a hunters cabin) is on the other. Now that doesnt sound all that bad right? well your wrong, on the porch of the cabin are walls of wood (obvious fireplace material) and there is another dead car grave yard. a swamop backed up to the back of the cabin and the lighting was low. When I describe it it doesnt sound too bad but think of the beginning of a horror movie. Yea, that creepy f**king house.

So after leaving N to his serial killer doom I had an awesome evening..until I had to pick him up at midnight. Now think of the scene iIdescribed but only without light.... yea.. creepy.

So over break I will be changing my blog around. I will try to catch up on my post numbers in two weeks but will be creating my music blog and hopefully writting in that by Sunday.  And hopefully I will be writing much more interesting  material.

Wednesday, October 13, 2010


So I think I will make another blog that will be geared more towards what I want to do with my life. More arts and entertainment reviews. Also I will be moving the Apo review (and adding to it) to this new blog.  And hopefully I can catch up with this one.

7th Symphony

Starting out on a good note (hehe get it? note!) 7th Symphony, instrumetal band Apocalyptica's newest addition, contniues to carry on the bands good name. A bit more goth and dark than previous records the new CD stars guest vocalists Lacey (Flyleaf), Gavin Rossdale (Bush), Brent Smtih (Shinedown) and Joseph Duplantier (Gojira) in explosive, new collaberations.  Guest drummer Dave Lambardo, who has worked with the band previously, also lends his talents to 7th Symphony. However this album seems to not flow as smoothly as Worlds Collide ( 2008) with  harsh songs breaking up the softer, more distorted melodies. Speaking of distortion, a more dramatic sound, caused by the whirring moan of distored and stretched notes, deepens the emotions present throughout the songlist.

More to come!

This will be edited and rewritten as I please, when I have time :/

Happiness is the first pblication of your work in your adult life. Currently I am both happy and nervous. My first article was published in the college newspaper and so far the reaction from my friends has been good.  Still I cant help but feel nervous that I wont be able to follow it up.

For now I will rule the campus, then next, THE WORLD!  MWAHAHAHAHA!
