sado-pacifism [Dec. 17th, 2006|02:34 am]
Johnny Yugoslavia
Today was ok. I took my car to get my tires rotated and such and I need to do an oil change within the next couple of days. I picked up my last check from health nutz. It didn't really hit me until tonight that I was going to be leaving the valley, as in not living here. I mean, I knew this but I guess I never really considered the idea of waking up somewhere else every day. Not facing the highways and streets I'm used to. It's an interesting feeling.

I went to go see borat again with Elicia, Corey, Crystal, Jeremy, and Ken. It was so rad.

I also ran into sam there. Jesus christ I want to marry that woman. UGH.

In any case, I learned a few new things.

-DDR is awesome and I totally wish I had started playing sooner
-I really love early emo music (i.e. Rites of spring, Husker du, etc.)
-Life is looking up.

yeah, well, my eyes are tired from playing DDR on my comp so I'm out.

good night.

At the Library [Dec. 15th, 2006|02:47 pm]
Johnny Yugoslavia
I had to pay some gnarly bills today because my cellphone was behind. Gah, I hate that fucking thing, I can't wait until my contract is up.

In anycase, I had to upgrade because 200 minutes goes really fast. whateves.

I'm at the library right now and I found a bunch of cool CDs that I'm ripping

-Working & Union Songs
-Pete Seeger - we shall overcome
-Western Railroad songs

They have a bunch of other foreign and amerikan folk music that I'll rip but I think that is enough for today.

I really love folk music, Its so uplifting and so much of it is relevant to today. It's kind of crazy how things change but they never really change. If you look at the political climate 30 to 40 years ago, there was just as much tension except now instead of the red scare, we have the war on terrorism. In any case, I say poo poo.

and to that end...

Good literature for the aspiring dissident

new laptop [Dec. 14th, 2006|06:05 pm]
Johnny Yugoslavia
so I've recently come into a new Macbook by way of early b-day/Christmas/going away present. anyways, I'm thinking that I may actually stick to updating this blog. I dunno. it's pretty neat.

Dear Livejournal,

I really enjoy having my own computer for the first time in my life. I take it just about everywhere with me and enjoy stealing people's intranets. I really love the intranets, especially YTMND. YTMND is God glorious gift to the intranets.

In anycase, alot has been going on.

my move date is getting closer and closer. I can't wait to be out of the desert, I know it will be the beginning of a great adventure.

So for the first time in 3+ years I've told a girl that I liked her and faced rejection like a normal person rather than just assuming that My crush would be unrequited. in any case, I think it was a big step for me and I'm pretty proud of myself.

I dunno, I really need to write this stuff as it's happening.

The Move [Oct. 30th, 2006|12:21 am]
Johnny Yugoslavia
So, this january I'm getting out of the valley for good.

The valley I've hated for so long.

The valley I've longed to escape from. I really can't wait.


I'm moving to sacramento with Jack. I'll be going to school up there and most importantly, making music with jack again. I can't wait. It's almost surreal, I've been here for 17 years of my life. I've cultivated so many great, triumphant, terrible and painful memories, it's odd to think that I'm going off to do the same in a bigger, more exciting place.

alot can change in two years.

even more can change in four.

Change is the only thing that has ever been constant in life, yet sometimes I refuse to go along with it.

Not this time.

a certain somone has come back into my life. Somone I've had history with now for 7 years. I'm really excited to see where this goes. We both agree that it's something that could be very nice to say the least, but there is always an air of doubt in my life. I don't really know, I can't place it. All I know is that it makes me feel much more lonely than not having anyone who feels that way for me. It's like a kid knowing where the presents are and not being able to reach them. But I suppose I'm better off than I was a year and a half ago.


I need to get a pump for presta valves, I want to ride now that the weather is getting nicer.

lately my life has been shrouded in nostalgia. I can't figure out why, there's just been alot of reflection upon "the good ol' days.." I've always hated nostalgia and yet I've always been such a sentimental goon. Hypocracy is my middle name, I suppose.

I'm hoping that Ryan, Matt, Jack, and I can go to ensenada this winter, that would be keen.

I spoke to julissa last night and it was the cutest conversation we've had in a long time. I'm so glad she's decided to quit doing the drugs. I was really worried about her for so long but I'm hoping that she'll be ok.

I'm praying.

big deal, praying to a god I've openly denounced.

I'll do anything, just let my best friends be safe.

Today, I'm happy. One of my best friends turned 17 today. right now I love life. I'm thinking of what I'm going to be doing this weekend with two of my best buddies. I'll be going to the beach on saturday and a show on friday. I can't wait. I cannot wait to get in the ocean, it's been too long.

Adventures sound beautiful right now.

I'm here at work right now. For the past few days I've been really fucking stupid over woman issues.

Or lack thereof.

I really cannot figure out what the fuck is up with me. I suppose I'm either wayyyy to boring or... well, I suppose that there is really no alternative.

Actually, I'm terrified of talking to women I like. It's not so much the fear of rejection... It's just the fear of being a fucking idiot. I just don't even know how to approach this whole dating thing. I'm better at fruitless infatuation that actually handling a relationship, I guess. I really don't know.

here comes a customer. I should probably help him. Yeah, I definitely should...

alright.

geez, I feel like an asshole for updating at work. Maybe I should save this shit for home.

Then again, what is work? The act of perpetuating capitalism. Independent or not, i'm still embracing a system I hate.

Best Summer EVER [Aug. 15th, 2006|10:29 am]

[mood |good things, vague]
[music |none]

I have to say, compared to every other summer vacation in my life, this one takes the cake. I suppose I am glad that it does because it is my last summer vacation as a public school student. I haven't had nearly as many adventures in previous summers and there is still a few weeks left to have many more. Hanging out with matt has been the best, it always is. Shit, I can't wait for school to start up, I'm really excited to see people outside of their highschool element. In any case, things are gearing up to get busy. I've finally found a job and I absolutely love it. I'm working at a local independent health food store and it's great. Everyone there is really interesting. I've never worked someplace where I actually enjoyed talking to the people I was working with. On the 25th I'm going to LA to ride mass and see this bike is a pipe bomb. Its going to be fucking rad. I'm hoping I'll be able to fit three bikes so that way we can have a third person come. In any case, it will be a good trip.

Bike night [Jun. 18th, 2006|06:46 am]
Johnny Yugoslavia
Holy shit. Last night/this morning was awesome! The adventure really began with me finishing my bike. Matt and I were really stoked about it and we went and ate a victory lunch. Afterward, I went to meet up with Nathan, Chad, Ryan, Frank, and Karina at the mall. I brought My bike along (which I named Rollin' Thunder) and showed them. I was feeling really proud of it. I stopped by my haus to pick up some stuff and then went to Denny's to meet up with people for a birthday dinner. then I called Matt to meet up for a bike ride. at about 12:30 nathan, Frank, Chad, Ryan, and I rode to meet up with matt. They didn't end up showing up at the spot until about 2:30. we rode to walmart and got our snack on and then we just rode about La Quinta and did little fun things and watched the sun rise. I just got in from the ride, it was amazing.

bikes, life, and things. [Jun. 16th, 2006|12:35 am]
Johnny Yugoslavia
These past few days have been intense. Last night I hung out with this lady I met last christmas. Her name is Tracey. It was really odd. She called me yesterday afternoon and asked if I would be down for hanging out. I told her I was free after my bike ride and could meet up with her around 8:30pm. I end up getting a call from her saying that she's going to be late and after a few other calls, we finally met up at about ten. What made this particular event soo odd was that she proceeded to tell me about how she'd been hospitalized three weeks prior to our meet up due to this intense seizure. The doctor said that if it were to happen again, she was going to die. So after telling me this, she asks for my full name to be able to leave me her record collection in the case that anything should happen. Now, I wouldn't have been taken off guard soo much if I had known her for a while, but this was only our second time ever hanging out. Another detail I forgot to mention is that this lady is 39 years old. So, anyways, after talking it over with my friend elicia, I decided that no one could really do much harm with your name seeing as she has my cell phone number which could yield more info than my name. After that whole ordeal, we hung out until about 2:00 in the morning. She's a pretty interesting person. I still can't help but feel a little uneasy about this thing though. Oh well, I'm sure I'll get over it.

My bike is soo close to being finished that I could almost taste it. ????? Yeah, well, it is. Today Matt and I picked up the last BIG parts that we needed and worked on it all afternoon. I was actually able to take it out for a test ride tonight. The only thing left to tweak on it is the front derailleur and the back. The shifters are kind of funky and neither Matt or I know anything about transmissions. That was always the intimidating part for me.

I'm really worried that despite my age and the fact that I will soon be attending college (within a matter of days) my mother will not cease to treat me as a child. She still gets onto me for coming in later than 12:00 for chrissake! I don't know, I think this could only be a sign of things to come and perhaps I should really consider moving out on my own. I may have to lose a substantial amount of money to do so, but it is better than being an 18 year old child. I don't know, I'm really conflicted on the entire situation.
