Hey, everybody! It's been a long time! A really long time! I just wanted to update you on a few things, and explain why you never see me posting, blogging, or PMing anymore.
I've transferred out to a public high school, and now am in a ton of choirs and show choirs in the school. It keeps me very busy. I've also increased my social life highly, and am working toward getting sing lessons and a job soon. This is all keeping me from BZPower. I will no long really be posting anymore. I might resp
Something interesting about the new Fall Out Boy single "What a Catch, Donnie" that I found was the fact that the background tracks of other songs aren't sung by FOB. They are actually the lead singers from a ton of other bands that were singing them. Here's a list.
* Elvis Costello - "Headfirst Slide into Cooperstown on a Bad Bet"
* Gabe Saporta (Midtown), (Cobra Starship) - "Grand Theft Autumn/Where Is Your Boy"
* Travis McCoy (Gym Class Heroes) - "Sugar, We're Goin' Down"
Well, The All-American Rejects's first single was released today from their new album When The World Comes Down. But you can't download it yet...
However, I got it. I do that a lot, don't I? I can't say the name of the single, but for the next 24 hours, if you're a member on their site, it's streaming on there. I ripped a pretty clean version of the song, so if anyone wants it, post a comment or drop me your email.
Well, most of my friends have started school by now. But I still haven't. I'm not home schooled or anything; I just start school on September 8th instead.
So I just wanna ask as a question of the day - How is school going for you? Is it better or worse than previous years, and do you have high or low expectations for it?
Perhaps that will be my next color? The red reminds me of blood too much. Also, if none of you have heard the song Dark Blue by Jack's Mannequin, I highly suggest looking it up. It's very good.
Well, after a semi-absence, I've returned to BZP for the last few weeks before school starts. It's pretty...normal, actually. The only thing I'm waiting for is trying to decide what new phone I should get. Lol.
I'm on T-Mobile, any ideas?
Actually, there is much about something. I just would like to thank Black Six and Omi for being so patient with me concerning my name problems, and for Black six changing it to Tak-E after the confusion. Thanks, guys - if you read this, even.
No, this isn't an entry about Green Day's Time of Your Life. But it is about a band whose Wikipedia entry I was just editing.
As of July 21st, 2008 - Boys Like Girls has announced that they have a new album slated for this year.
Added to the albums of The All-American Rejects, Plain White T's, Drake Bell, and the High School Musical 3 soundtrack, it sounds like I'll have no lack of music this school year.
Well, I'm back. It wasn't as long as an absence as last time, luckily. (My last unexpected take of leave was for a period of months.) But, not much has happened in the past days. The only thing of interest was going up to Wisconsin to visit a soda bottling plant. My dad took me up because he had to go and deliver some of his formulas to the plant manager. They package the Wallgreens bottle sodas, which apparently my dad formulated - which is the reason we have so much of it in my fridge. So next
July 5th, Drake Bell is coming to within an hour of my house.
For a free concert.
Do you know how psyched I am?
He's like, my idol! His music is revolutional, and he's an amazing and inspiring guitarist!
So, my question of the day is, who is your idol, and why? (Outside of family.)
But that's really all that mattered to me today. This is Taki, and you've just been filled in.
Edit: Two things. For one, we can't make the concert because my dad has a bulging disk in his
I know, right? First thing you noticed! I didn't use •'s in my title! that's because they were in the Wall•E name. I just saw the movie, as you might be able to tell by my avatar and banner. And I'm in love with it! Wall•E and Eve are undoubtedly the most amazing couple in the history of, well...EVER! So yeah, that's pretty much it.
Question of the day: Did you see Wall•E? What were your thoughts?
P.S. Yes, I am aware of the environmentalist and other implications of the movie. I don't car
Some of you may remember a long time ago, I posted a blog entry about my Rewind mixes that I was making. Well, that was a long time ago, and I think I'm gonna finish that long overdue project. I have my first two mixes up. Even though they have some retarded songs, they still are pretty good.
I'll post more on it later. Oh, and the revamp on the blog has begun.
I'm gonna be revamping my blog in a few days. Maybe tonight if I get bored. Lol. But I need a new display picture. That's the biggest thing. And it has to be of me in a red shirt. I'll just wear a red shirt to my friend's house tonight. That works.
Summer's been...good? Bad? I'm not exactly sure right now. It's been interesting. Two weeks in and already it's all weird. But no matter what, I promised myself that I will never go back to how I was last summer. (Wondering what I was like last su
It's about 2:30 A.M. right now. My dad and my sister went out to my aunt's house to help plan for the wake and funeral (see last entry). But I can't sleep, and I don't know why. Well, I do, but I wish I didn't. My uncle's passing is nagging at something, and I don't know what it is exactly. All I know is that it's something that I wish I had asked him - something I wish I had a second chance at.
You see, my uncle had a disease known as MS. I'm not exactly sure what it is, or what it does. But
Apparently I sleep too deep. Last night, in the middle of the night, my sisters were trying to wake me up to tell me something I'd never expected. Instead, I found out this morning while grabbing something out of the fridge. I was asking what there was to eat for breakfast.
"Well," my mom answered, unaware I didn't know. "We're going out to get some food for Uncle Mike's funeral."
I didn't think much of it. But then I turned around. Almost spun into the fridge door.
"Uncle Mike's funera
I've been awake for a while now.
You've got me feeling like a child now.
'Cause every time I see your bubbly face,
I get the tingles in a silly place.
It starts in my toes,
And I crinkle my nose.
Wherever it goes I'll always know,
That you make me smile.
Please stay for a while now.
Just take your time,
Wherever you go.
This is actually a song that is special to me. I'm sure a lot of you know it. If not, go and look for it.
No question of t
Well, it was inevitable. It had to happen sometime. No matter how much I tried to fight it, it came. I used all my strength, my willpower, my hope, my dreams, and my emotions.
And summer still came.
Lol. It hasn't been that bad, though. I've gotten a very nice tan, I have to admit. And seeing friends hasn't been a problem so far. And another fun little fact: I beat Halo 3 in one day. Haha. Now my friend and I are doing it on Campaign mode. But back to my summer fun. I think that the reason
As I woke up today and yesterday, I found myself in utter shock that I wasn't leaping up or getting yelled at for not getting ready for school. The feeling itself was bittersweet. For one thing, no more school for three months! (Yes, I literally get three months. I don't go back till September 8th.) For another thing, I get to sleep in all summer. That's an upside, but it doesn't really matter that much; I don't need much sleep - I nap. But then there was one thing that had me in tears even as I
As of 8:32:47 Central Time (Chicago), I am officially fifteen. I'm posting this right now, because technically it's the last...now twelve minutes...of my actually birthday. It was pretty amazing, if I do say so myself. Friends, cake, gifts, and even some reflecting. With age comes wisdom, after all.
So, my question of the day, or more so night, is what was one of your most memorable birthdays, and what made it like that? Comments and replies go in the reply box down below. This is Taki, wishi
Happy Memorial Day, people who actually read my blog. (And who actually live in the United States. For those of you who don't live in the United States, this might be a little more boring than usual for you.) Most of us just recognize this holiday because we get off school one extra day before it ends. And that's true, that is a good reason for this holiday. But it's not the real reason. Memorial Day is a day where we honor those who died in action for our country. So today, I highly encourage y
Last night I went out with my folks to see the new Prince Caspian movie. It was amazing, to say the least. I don't really want to post a review for you guys, but I don't want to reveal any spoilers. So when I say you'll love the part at the end that you see coming the whole movie, you'll have to take my word for it. Actually, there was a song at the end of the movie which I liked a lot. It's called "The Call" (talk about irony) by Regina Spektor. It's calm, so nothing special. But it's unique a
This morning, for once in a million days, I'm stuck at home with a fever. Nothing severe, but it was strong enough to crash me yesterday. I decided to stay home from school so I could recuperate. As I was semi-sleeping on the couch (meowing kittens outside were keeping me up - more on those cuties later), I got a text from my good friend who moved out to LA recently.
"Did u hear the news bout steven curtis chapmans daughter?"
That's what my friend asked me. Naturally I replied no and waite
That's what my dad said to me as we were driving in the car this morning. Of course I smiled and said thanks, but I didn't really know what I was supposed to say to that. I mean, sure I could've gone, "Thanks, you're a great dad." But it doesn't mean the same thing coming back after he says I'm the good son first.
So the question of the day is, have you ever heard something like this from your parents, and what did it make you feel like?
Today, instead of starting out with my thoughts, I thought (...shut up) that I'd start with the question of the day.
When you're lonely, hurt, confused - who do you turn to? Family, friends, God, pets? What keeps your spirits up?
I ask this because my best friend and I were having an argument (not really an argument, more like a "violent discussion") about if I was lonely because my friends were all busy, or because I wanted to be. And I asked myself, "Now why would I want to be lonely?" A
