there is new november_fahrenheit material.

and believe-you-me–there’s plenty wrong with it–it’s allergy season and my mediocore voice just isn’t strong right now.  that’s the obvious part.

as i led on yesterday, it’s harder to fake song lyrics that fiction.  and with this work-in-progress, the entire is thing is based off a single moment, literally a question and a response… so, i’ve got that part written.  but i don’t know how i’m going to finish it yet; not sure where i’m going with it.  hopefully it’ll pop in my head sometime next week.

rock so much it hurts.

December 19, 2006

because of MINGER ‘s recent post containing a reference to led zep and rage as most excellent ways to rock-out, and then my buddy R.C.G. [ rick ] letting me get really drunk in his lexus while listening to everything from ‘Led Zep II’ to ‘Physical Graffiti’, i decided — while CIAVARROED — to form a led zep tribute band called the ROCK-OUTS.  this band will consist of myself on guitar and vocals, R.C.G. on vocals, and B.Allbright doing something he calls ‘aesthetic dancing’… [i think he’s just in for another excuse to wear extra small faded t-shirts.]  this band will perform exclusively at apartments pouring the coldest beer in town or enough whiskey shots to make B.O.B. (black-out-bob) cringe — [i prefer wild turkey, but i realize that’s not a consensus.]  on the rarest of occasions, the band will feature such guest vocalists as vincent ‘shames’ giannola and chuck pruce. if you want a ‘ the ROCK-OUTS ‘ t-shirt, email me your addy and if i get enough requests, i’ll actually get them–bulk discount.  if you don’t want one, that’s just nature’s way of telling you that you’re not cool enough to have one anyway.


twice in the last couple of days, someone has made a reference to ‘getting amped on adarol or coke or meth or whatever and then packing a bowl’ when i mention needing to write or study.  most recently, it was EMO MIKE in an email last night while i was suffering from insomnia.  i was actually so pissed about that i guess i didn’t see the humor in it.  i do now.

here’s to mikey’s randomness.


i’ve so got a crush on a complete stranger. 

she sings and plays piano at a downtown bar and it’s really awkward for me ’cause:

  1. i haven’t actually been interested in anyone in a longtime.  it’s completely opposite of everything i’m used to; usually it’s someone likes me and depending on how bored i am, i might feign interest back.

  2. this chick is probably outta my league.

  3. and according to PENNINGTON’S LAW, because i’m interested in her, she won’t be interested in me–the LAW clearly states that “there shall not be any mutal or implied interest shared with any young attractive that Brandon Pennington, et al expresses or inferrs an interest in, whether in passing or directly, and furthermore the only attentions or interests shown to Brandon Pennington will be those of little or no interest to him, or those living an unsurmountable distance, as to dessuade any happiness that might effect Brandon’s writing career.”

gone, but back again…

September 18, 2006

it’s not often that i find a new band i like, but this weekend, ben, seth, and i went to Nashiville for a starsailor show.

which was good, they had sound problems: far be it from me to complain about the noise, but at times they were so loud that they lost clarity.  i don’t mean to take anything away from them, ’cause they definately had their high points, “four to the floor” and “lullaby” never sounded so good…

peter walker on the other hand…

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us rocked.  maybe i was just in the mood for some good, old fashioned tom petty-ish rock…

so overall, if i were to evaulate him, i’d say his velvet lined version of alt rock is underscored only by his near expressionless subtlety, and punctuated by his aggressive, but not over-the-top blues riffs. 

but really, what i do i know about music anyway.

turns out though, he’s a helluva nice guy too… his bass player is a bit of a skirt-chaser, which he and i had a big laugh about, (he also gave me shit for sneaking seth beers in the parking lot), but these guys were down to earth, which is something i think everyone appreciates.

so, if you’re a myspacer, check out his page, give ’em the add… but if you do, leave him comment saying you heard about him here first.

about last night…

April 21, 2006

as you can read here,

my kid brother, ben, bethany, and i went to the mute math show, which was quite fantastic.


the opener, theworkingtitle was pretty good too. the lead singer was a little emo though… really whiney, and kind of gave the impression his "on stage intensity" was forced.

and emo mike, that picture wasn't supposed to look anything like you. you're name's ironic; i swear, everybody thinks so. really.


different people are all the time asking what life in the south is actually like, which, i think is something i struggle to put to words, 'cause it's all mostly over-the-top unbelieveable shit. but, every once in a while, i'll see a news clip or a picture that says all the things i can't. here's one.

here's another.

][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][

i see this picture, i think of the first time i met ben allbright, back in the 9th grade when he was 4'11" and 90lbs dripping wet. back then, he probably owned this cd, and that's hilarious.

i see this picture, and i think maybe the world's only half crazy.

also, why is this so damn funny?

drop it like it's hoff? .com? that's insanely funny… WHY is that a website? who sits around and does this shit?

who does these chuck norris jokes we've all read? why is it so funny that chuck norris has an active lawsuit against NBC for copywrite infringement for their show "Law and Order", which chuck claims are the offical names of his left and right legs? fuck if i know, but i laugh everytime i hear a new chuck joke.


lastly, here's the most disgusting thing i've seen in about a month – dedicated to ashley.



AND, from the totally effing hot category, this chick

lives in arkansas. apparently, i just don't go to the right places.


post script – blogstock L.A. is looking to be a real event. may 12-14. be there.
