Just Watched Dear Jack...
11/07/09 at 03:16 AM by Trevor Sostarich
That documentary is amazing. I didn't expect it to hit me like that. I should have known though. I just didn't expect to tear up at all and it was just nuts. I'm so happy Andrew is still with us today. After seeing everything he went through it just showed me how precious life really is. The film is a must watch. Get it on iTunes or wherever you get you movies. It's worth every penny.

Just Got Home From Brand New, Thrice, and Crime In Stereo
11/05/09 at 01:14 AM by Trevor Sostarich
So the show tonight was great. Crime In Stereo was good. The front man was a little over the top. He just jumped around way too much. A little over the top for the opening act (in my opinion). They were easily forgettable. Thrice did great as well, but there's a lack of energy in their live shows now. Maybe I'm not growing like they are musically, but I just kept finding myself getting distracted. I kept looking at their gear more than listening to the songs they were playing. They're solid musicians, but I guess I just like the older material than the newer material.

Brand New on the other hand were fantastic. They opened the show with "You Won't Know" which was perfect. Their energy was spot on with their songs, and Jesse Lacey's voice makes you envious of his ability to sing the way he does. I find myself completely jealous of his writing style, his guitar playing, and his vocals. The dude has way more problems than I have ever had in my life, but damn does he know how to make me connect. Songs that were played tonight are listed below. I'll list them in no particular order, but by which album the songs appeared on.

Deja Entendu:
  • Sic Transit Gloria... Glory Fades
  • Okay I Believe You, But My Tommy Gun Don't
  • The Quiet Things That No One Every Knows
  • Play Crack The Sky

The Devil & God Are Raging Inside Me:
  • Sowing Season
  • Jesus
  • Degausser
  • Limousine
  • You Won't Know
  • Luca
  • The Ancher's Bows Have Broken

  • Vices
  • At The Bottom
  • Gasoline
  • You Stole
  • Bought A Bride
  • In A Jar

The Greener Grass *new rough lyrics*
10/22/09 at 11:46 PM by Trevor Sostarich
Iím done with all of my boring nonsense
and speaking for everything in past tense
Just want to speak for the here and now
cause I know Iím done letting myself down
overcoming things that Iíve done
finding new meaning in old songs
all about my long lost loves
whom I have no reason speaking of

I finally realized everything they said
ďYouíre gonna be someone.Ē
ďyouíre gonna help them mend.Ē
(Broken hearts, the lonely and depressed)
ďyouíre the voice of reason now sing to them!Ē

I know I will never save the world
but I can save myself
and I know I am ready now
to be the voice of everyone else
how could I be if I canít define
the person I have been this entire time
but now I see with non hazy eyes
the greener grass on the other side

I use to curl up in bathrooms at night
after drugs and alcohol took over my life
always attempting to find an escape
but all of my reality was slipping away
but those days are gone for me now
I finally figured myself out
for what I wanted this whole entire time
was right there staring me back in my eyes

I finally realized that Iím someone
should have listened from day one
Iíve already had my time to mend
Now I reach out to all of them!
I know I will never save the world
but I can save myself
and I know I am ready now
to be the voice of everyone else
how could I be if I canít define
the person I have been this entire time
but now I see with non hazy eyes
the greener grass on the other side

I thought Iíd lost it all in the end
then I came running back again
to the voices that use to call my name
somehow they never gave up faith
in me and all of my idealistic poetry
of all the personaís I had long to be
finding truth, no more lies
cut the rope to my demise

I know I will never save the world
but I can save myself
and I know I am ready now
to be the voice of everyone else
how could I be if I canít define
the person I have been this entire time
but now I see with non hazy eyes
the greener grass on the other side

PS - Iím very wordy, but I like it that way.

What A Day
10/10/09 at 11:35 PM by Trevor Sostarich
This has been one of the hardest days to make it through. So much drama going on within my personal life. Seriously I'm just getting better from my kidney stone and surgery, just lay the fuck off right now.

Anyway no more ranting. I'm really thankful for a few albums that helped me get through today. You can find them below.
  • Relient K - Forget and Not Slow Down
  • The Matches - Decomposer
  • Cary Brothers - Who You Are
I'm going to attempt to go to bed at this moment. Hopefully when I wake up it'll be a good day. I can be hopeful.

A Blog From My Hospital Bed
10/04/09 at 02:52 PM by Trevor Sostarich
Last night I got a sharp pain in my back around midnight. I mean really sharp almost stabbing like pain. It was so bad that I was throwing up and I just couldn't get comfortable. I got rushed to the ER around 2 in the morning and I've been here ever since. Found out I have a huge kidney stone (7.5 mm). Today they put me to sleep and put a catheter up in my penis. They moved the kidney stone but they haven't gotten rid of it. I gotta make an appointment for this week or next week to get rid of it. I'm just waiting to pee in order to go home right now. I'm not in pain anymore since they moved it. I'm glad I can eat some food again and drink some water again. I'm saying goodbye to soda, tea, and alcohol for a while. Time to take care of myself before anything else goes wrong.

Blink-182 Tampa, FL Sep. 27th
09/29/09 at 09:16 PM by Trevor Sostarich
So it was probably the best show I've been to. I've been trying to see Blink merely my whole life. I'm 21 now and yeah, I was never able to make it. They played a great set and Tom actually sounded good. The energy was fantastic and it really looks like Tom and Mark are becoming great friends again. I posted some pictures on my tumblr blog. More will be posted soon, but check them out.

Blink-182 Untitled Acoustic Cover Album
08/12/09 at 12:17 PM by Trevor Sostarich
Odi Acoustic released his cover album of Blink-182's untitled album. It's really good, and the way he reworked everything makes every song beautiful. He's from Germany (that's where his accent comes from) and he's great. Download for free.

Went to Warped Tour yesterday
07/25/09 at 12:17 PM by Trevor Sostarich
And I don't get the feeling that I use to while I was there. I watched You, Me, and Everyone We Know, Less Than Jake, All Time Low, Lights, Big D and The Kids Table and that was about it. Seriously I just felt out of place being there. I felt old. I was tired two hours in. It was too hot. I feel like I could have spent my money on something better. This tour just doesn't mean the same to me. It doesn't even stand for what it use to stand for. The tour is slowly becoming a joke. Give me my punk rock. I don't want The Maine or Every Avenue. Even worse I don't want Brokencyde or Millionaires. These bands are jokes. I won't be going back to another Warped Tour until they have a better line up, or if the ticket is given to me for free. Needless to say I won't be wasting my money on this again.

It's My Birthday!
07/08/09 at 12:07 PM by Trevor Sostarich
I'm 21 today. I find it refreshing, but I'm sad about it too. I can drink legally, but I don't feel the need to really drink anymore. I drank last night though. At midnight I was at the bar all my friends hangout at. I drank for free and I don't really remember coming home. I also apparently woke my whole house up when I got home. I miscalculated the whole diving into bed thing and landed on the floor. My brother and my mom tried to get me up, but I started puking. I don't even want to see alcohol for the rest of today. I just want to relax.

That being said I've got some things to pick up today. Here's my list:
  • All Time Low - Nothing Personal
  • The Gay Blades - Ghost
  • Wish You Were Here by Leslie Simon

I'm now off to get on with my day.

Epilogue *lyrics in progress*
07/01/09 at 10:45 PM by Trevor Sostarich
Soaking in the sweat of what I long to be
I was sorry before this all happened
but stubborn-ness took the best of me
I would re-write these pages if I knew they'd be read
but all I did was put the book down
for it to never be picked back up again
it's a whole new chapter with the same old cover
it's been beaten at the seams, but I still annotate
between the heroin and his lover
and all of the lines that they speak
underlining paragraphs of what they meant to say

can I be a cliff note that you always remember
through the rainiest of days
when it's overcast on your mind
and you lose all hope in everything.
can I be the one there to save you
right at the very end
where all the sentences run together
and all of your broken starts to mend.
Let me be your Epilogue
