This has happened before when I've gone on medication, and seems to be one of the few indicators that the pills are actually doing something. Music just holds no interest in my life anymore. I never listen to any at home (I even misplaced my ipod, not having used it since October, I think?). One day a few weeks ago, I turned the radio off while driving. I drive in silence now. That used to bother me so much, and now, when my mom tried to turn it back on the other day, I just found the noise grating. Noise - is that all music has become for me?
I've tried to listen to some tracks posted in the upcoming albums thread and I can't even make it through to the end of each. Reading through speculation and rumours, not a single name mentioned gets that part inside of me revving like before. There's no spark. I went to a musical the other day and I realized I was that person who just sits there still, not tapping toes or moving along in any way. I used to say I didn't trust people that didn't move in some way when music was playing. That those people didn't have a soul. Is that what I've become? Honestly, it does kinda feel like something is missing, like I'm a bit emptier in there.
It's strange, it seems like such an antithesis to what you would think the medication is supposed to do. It's supposed to lift me up, out of darkness, yet that seems to be coming at a cost that keeps me from appreciating the parts that make the 'light' so wonderful. At least unmedicated, whether up or down, I could find solace or joy in music. Really, it all just feels so flat now.
Yeah, apparently the entire security team walked off the job by day two. davers has a great story about a friend that showed up to the gate without a ticket and a dog on a leash. One of the security guards at the gate just wanted to pet the dog and the other was hanging out of a tree high on acid, I believe?
So, if this year's fest is only half of the clusterfuck as that year, I'll be highly impressed. But I'm prepping for security guards dangling from trees on acid.
Each person is allowed each of the items listed -- so a case of beer and a 2 bottles of wine, etc. Also, I read a comment on the facebook page a while back where they said you're allowed to go back to your car to get items, including more booze.
Plus, it's probably not that hard to put some of it on your backpack and they'll never know. I'm sure, like other festivals, the only part they might actually care about is glass containers.

Maybe the Taqueria here in Vancouver is a chain, but it's definitely just commonly used to mean "taco shop" in the states. I've seen tons of places called taqueria or had the the word taqueria as part of their name down there. I don't think it's a trademarked name in quite the same way you're thinking as with Pizza Hut; it's more like a place being called "corner store" or "smoke shop".
I have a feeling that this is the album deadmau5 has wanted to create his entire career, but never had the balls to make. It's a double album with almost two and a half hours of dark, glitchy, beautiful, and introspective tracks that flow together seemlessly. There isn't a single club banger, and no songs whatsoever that 17 year old girls on molly can sing along to. There is also some serious fucking Trent Reznor worship happening throughout the entire thing, complete with classic NIN sounding pianos and even a How to Destroy Angels and NIN remix on each disc. Just in case the listener needed any more of a reminder of where Joel got the inspiration for this album. Despite that, there is still plenty of the patented deadmau5 sound on it. Most of which takes me back to the earliest songs I ever heard from him. I'm absolutely stoked to hear him finally making music for himself again, because that's always been where he's put out his best work.
This seems like another reason why you should be trying to get up here for Pemberton, just so you can see if he plays any of this live.
Also, this makes me way more excited to see him now too 'cause the last time I saw him was at that stupid one day electronic fest at BC Place where he did his "unhooked" set that he finished 20 minutes early for no reason whatsoever. This sounds like it could potentially redeem him for me.
Get a job in the hospitality industry -- the hotel I work at feeds me everyday for free. I save a lot on groceries, I think, but sometimes that means I have absolutely no food in the house for weeks and end up eating out way too much when I'm not at work.
I had a delicious bowl of ramen for breakfast/lunch and, even though that was only 3 hours ago, now I'm eating a huge plate of chilli con carne salad 'cause it's one of the better things my work makes for dinner and if I don't eat it now I'll miss out. I'm gonna be sooo full for the next 5 hours, thank god I work in a back office and can unbutton my pants.
