Yay, Friday. I wonder if we'll get pizza
So, the weekend. I think I've got nothing on, which is a very good thing, because I don't think Anna
has anything on either, apart from work. Which means we may get to spend the whole weekend together
. And that just rules.
I don't think we've got band practise
tomorrow... Rob has been in hospital
for his ear, and can't stress it with loud music
, but we may have been having a quiet one at Michael's. It's a bit late to organise it now though, and I think I'd prefer we didn't. I'd rather be able to sleep in tomorrow with the one I love
. Of course.
Plus, I'm feeling a bit down with the band
at the moment. Rob and Michael don't seem to want to play anything but Tool
and A Perfect Circle
, Kris is often busy and can't make it to band practise, and Jay still hasn't got any singing lessons
... I mean, I'm sure I'm not totally dedicated to it either, and singing lessons would help me too, but I think I'm holding my own.
But, I get sick of Maynard
, and trying to sing like him. Sometimes I can, often I can't, I'm not that good yet. And I can't get into that music, I need something that's going to get my adrenaline
pumping and just let me totally let go. I wish they could learn some Slipknot
or Machine Head
or something. But of course, they all use five string bass
es or seven string guitar
s or something
, there's always some excuse.
I'm probably being unfair, I can't expect them to buy new equipment just so they can play songs I like
, but still. I'm sure there are ways to get around it for at least some of the songs.
But I refuse to learn entire Tool
albums, as Michael suggested the other day. We need some
Ah well, I'm sure my mood will change, it usually does... I go through phases of being totally optimistic
about the band, we've got some possible gigs
coming up, and I think about how great it'll be if we go well in front of these people, even if it's only just friends
But then I get annoyed that we're stuck on doing all these songs I can't really get into, my voice isn't working the way I want it to, nobody else seems to be putting in the effort... bah. I don't have any aspirations of being famous
or anything, I don't think I'd want that, but I'd like to get out of the garage
, so to speak.
I wonder if I should look for another band, next year, one that might be interested in doing songs more to my liking. It's hard being in a band where pretty much all the members have different tastes. And I'm not very confrontational
, so it's hard to convince them to play likeable songs. But yeh. I don't know. It's hard when they're all friends, as well.
Heh, perhaps I should learn guitar and become a solo artist. Pity I don't have the patience to learn any instrument
And now, to lunch.
Damn, no pizza. Ah well, cheese rolls again.
