I Love Rock -N- Roll

I do. I really love me some rock. I saw a few documentaries on hulu over the weekend--one on the Beatles (which was eh, okay), Queen (very good), and Led Zeppelin (also an eh okay documentary). While many of you will argue the "rockness" of The Used (yes, a bit more pop punk/pop rock than like rock rock in my humble opinion), I did go to their concert. They played a great set.

Who didn't play a great set?


It's not that they weren't talented. The fundamental problem with them is that they were CHICK rockers. NO. NO NO NO NONO NO.

I don't know WHY i oppose women in rock but i just do. I think the only one i can say that i like is Janis Joplin. Everyone else....whatever. I dont know what it is about chick rockers that put me on tilt but i am NOT a fan. They ruin everything. Just like olives.

The first band was Stars in Stereo or something and Dr Phil's son is a guitarist in it and whatever. Anyways. They sounded like Paramore and RUINED "closer" by nine inch nails. Not that i even love that song or anything but it was the principle. The singer kept trying to 'sexy' dance and 'play' her gittered guitar (i'm not gonna lie, it was super cute) BUT the bitch didn't even play it! She would 'play' two chords and then start her 'sexy' dance which basically looked like Axl Rose's crab walk dance gone wrong.

And then there was Dead Sara and that girl had a really good voice but the fact that it was a rock thing made me cringe. They also did a cover at the end of their set and they did a cover of Rage Against the Machine, "Killing in the Name of" and i think that's when i lost my shit and started booing and Lauren grabbed my arm and pulled me outside before, as a I quote "We got the shit beat out of us."[Which i highly disagree with given that the crowd was mostly unwashed heavy girls who i could've easily out run.]

In case i haven't made it painfully clear I just dont like women in rock. And most of them who think they're in 'rock' are really just 'edgy' pop singers, lets be completely honest. People tried to sway me by naming female rockers that they thought would make me go 'ohhhhhh ok.' (i.e. Debbie Harry, Joan Jett, Pat Benetar etc) but instead i was like no no no and pop pop pop. NOT ROCK. NOT. ROCK.

Honestly, women should stay within pop, country and R&B. A few of you can be rappers but no fucking way in rock. Not in my world anyways.

Anyways! That's it for me setting women back 500 years. Happy Monday!

Rather Waste My Time With You

I'm not just quoting The Used b/c I went to their concert the other night (i'll def have to put my review up there on that whole thing later.)

I don't know exactly what came over me but I realized the other day that I've been kinda a shitty friend latey but completely unintentionally. And while I realize some of the time it's been to people I don't completely care about all that much anymore, I also realized it IS the people I care about the most too.

I've forgotten birthdays. I've forgotten to go to things I promised I would. I never remember to text back. I've flipped out at one particular friend even though they didn't deserve it. (Though I did apologize and said person was more than forgiving, I still feel like a first class asshole.)

I'd like to blame early on-set dementia for it but that's simply not true. It's just because I'm an asshole who has a hard time remembering stuff now.

This weekend I'm going to dedicate as much time as I can to trying to right my wrongs. Not sure why I felt the need to publicize it and yes, this is again another friend related blog, but i dont know.. felt right. Not to mention it's thunderstorming AGAIN for the 3rd time tonight and i'm TERRIFIED of storms so I've got some time on my hands.

Ok enough of this. I'm going to go get my business done! Sally shall not sucketh at being a friend anymore. I'm going to find ways to show my love to some friends I've been not so great with (again UNINTENTIONALLY) and hopefully all will be well. I'd rather waste my time with them than with some fakies and sucktards that i've come across.

And i think i'm going to start a diff kinda blog that Jones suggested I start (well it's a book actually but i'm going to start off with a blog). Very excited and i'll keep you all posted!
