My old band is doing a reunion show tomorrow without me (about which nobody has yet mentioned to me…). If it were feasible, I’d like to be there to see a bunch of old friends and some cool bands. I was involved with that scene for over 8 years, and it holds a lot of fond memories.
But overall, I think I’m a lot happier living in Tulsa and being involved with the scene here. We had a 3 band show the other day with two “locals” and an unheard-of touring band, one that was not all that well promoted, that still had a turnout of around 40-50 people. Lots of cool shows coming up and bands doing cool stuff all over the state. Everyone is friendly with each other for the most part, and there’s no real drama between hardcore/punk/metal scenes. Things aren’t perfect here, but I’d like to think that I’m in a better place for me, at least.

I used it once for about a week. I then realized I have a deeper commitment to tone than I do in finding my soulmate.
Grading papers on a Saturday night. Ask me something and distract me a little bit. Get weird with it, talk some shit, I don’t care.
