A Public Service Announcement From Your Friends At Toner Blog

Are You Gonna Be My Girl?

I saw the best thing ever today. No, it has nothing to do with music or comics, I have a life outside those. No, you're right, I don't but still, I did see the best thing ever, no joke.

I'm onstage durring play practice, and I see Tim up in the shed. He's doind something, I can't tell what it is, but he's moving stuff around. Then he picks up a bucket tied with what looks like a bedsheet to the roof. He lowers the bucket down and tests the make-shift rope by pulling on it. He looks at me. "Is this a good idea?" "Yes," I respond. He laughs, and grips the rope. He steps off the shed and is hanging for a matter of seconds before the rope snaps and he goes crashing down. He hits the croud with a loud smashing noise, and everyone turns. I laughed so hard I cried. It was great.

I'm trying to make a comic about the above story, but I'm having problems drawing it. Heeyzues, play screws me up, it's already 9:05! Anyway, just to share my little story, and the cd thing on the D3 blog is great. I did it, and the mix came out wonderful, I found a song I haven't heard since 6th grade. All I want to do is to thank you, even though I don't know who you are. You let me change lanes while I was driving in my car. Whoever you are, I wanna thank you, whoever you are....
Drop me a line sometime.

...Yet Another Drawing Of Me...

This is part of a logo I'm making for my website, hopefully to be completed one day. Holla at me.

I Wonder If I Should Title These...

I often blog and wonder if anyone reads it. I seriously doubt it. Then I think I read everyone else's blogs, so I figure someone has to read mine. And then I think about how everyone else has much fuller lives than me, and I come to realize that no one reads this thing. Yet I continue to post.

We watched "Lost in Translation" in FC today. It's a good, quiet, pretty film. It's not spectacular, it's pleasant. I can't explain it, but the best way to describe it is quiet. It put me in one of those moods, where I notice things as I walk. Like the smell of the Fenwick hallway, or how empty my locker looks. Or how warm it was, and how beautiful the streets looked, with the snow melting and sun still up at 5:30. And as I drove home, stuck in 1st Ave. traffic, I realized how perfect an album I had picked out for the day. Weezer (the blue one). I really love good music. I forget now what I wanted to say originally, so I'll just close it up. I hate when this happens, I have something to say and then I forget what it is. Go figure.

I lost 2nd period. Tim, Mark, and Jasmine lost already as well. Who will win?

In conclusion, Weezer is a great band. I really like music.

Yes, punk rawkers, it is true, Ben and the gang played a surprise show, that I mised, over the weekend. And he says there might be more.

I just wet myself.

Check out his blog for more info.

Wow, what a basketball game. You know what the best thing is? No more!

Hurls with the three, what a great time. Also, noted, I could hear Rick Barret's "Jackass!" where I was, so I am damn sure Coach Quinn heard it.

Check out Barret's Lament, a cool new comic. Also Menthol, a cool (new) band. I need to study for Western Civ. Later days.

Ah, last night, a night that I shall remember for a long, long time. I saw quite possibly the single best band that I have never heard of. They were called Menthol and they rocked. Hard. I witnessed an okay emo band (It was Valentine's Day), and then Menthol took the stage. They had Elvis Costello on the synth, and guitar and bass, and drums. And they synth starts up and the lead singer begins to sing. And it was awesome. It was like listening to a combo of DEVO, the Dis Plan, the Darkness, and a hella lot of other bands rolled into one. They were funny, serious, and just plain great. I don't know how to explain it, I couldn't stop smiling. They winning track was Danger: Rock Science! and boy, is it just that. This band played perfectly. It was like listening to an album. No screw ups, no feed back, perfectly timed drums, synth, and guitar. Tim Marco bought the last copy of their CD, but, have no fear, I shall have one on Tuesday, and I'll be damned if I don't make everyone I know listen to it. Everyone needs to hear this band, they are just that good.

So this is the deal from last night, I heard it straight from my cousin's friend's sister, who is the girlfriend of one of the refs:

Okay, so the Fenwick Hockey Team is up 53 to 1 (We let them score one 'cause, well, 53 - zip is just bad...), so the Carmel Kids are getting pissed. There's only 15 Fenwick Kids, a handful of girls and boys, and like 200 Carmel kids. So, the Carmel kids surround the Fenwick kids, but Dave Pollitz keeps them back just by looking at them. So the Carmel kids get scared, and they run out to someone's car and bring in this massive steel cage. The bust it open and out storms this 300 pound, 7 foot tall beast of a man. The guys running on PCP and 'roids, and he has this redish glow in his pupil-less eyes. He sees Fr. Winkles' Roman Collar and it sends him into a fit of rage. He backhands Father in the face so hard, it knocks him into the air and through a brick wall. Father just gets knocked out, but the Fenwick kids rush the dude, and he eats one, knocking the rest back. So now, Pollitz is pissed. He steps up to the man-beast and the thing hits him with all his might, but Pollitz is unharmed. The beast snapps with anger, rips a bench out of the stands and swings. Pollitz blocks it with one hand and smashes his other fist into the beast's chest, pulls out his heart, and jams it down his throat. The thing dies, and all the Carmel kids go running. That fight was nothing compared to the fight afterwards, with the Ninjas and Grizzly Bears, but that's a different story.

Jesus God, I just checked "Nothing Nice to Say" and was greated with "The Return is Nigh."

I think I just wet myself.

So I'm sitting here waiting for Turnthebout to happen, and I really have nothing to do. I guess I could ramble all about what I have been up to for the past two weeks, but then again, no. I'll sum it all up in quicky form.

-I am going to miss Banua. It sure was fun.
-I got into U of I. Rock on.
-I really hate basketball. I miss fun stuff and it gives me headaches.
-I got Kairos Leader. Again, rock on.
-The Darkness was sold out. Oh well, back to being emo.
-I've been drawing a lot lately, but have nothing good to show from it.
-The Dismemberment Plan is a really good band.

Anyway, that's pretty much my life as of now. Well, the parts of my life that I show everyone, of course there is more emotional and psychological problems going on, but I'm not going to tell yous guys about those.

Like I said, the Darkness was sold out. Ouch. I went to Reckless Records today, and got lost on the way. Great directions, Phyllis, remind me to smack you later. But I got there and took a good haul. I'm looking forward to Turnthebout tonight, it shall be fun. I will dance much, but I still need to figure out what it is that I am wearing. My red/black/Converse/Alkaline Trio suit was nixxed, so I now need to find something.

Another Ska fest tomorrow, well see if I go, hope so. I like the Ska music. Anyway, time to find something and ready myself. And listen to the DPlan. Always listen to the DPlan.
