Forgive Durden Interview Posted!
11/15/08 at 08:15 PM by hockeyguitar99
I did the interview tonight, got home, and slaved over transcribing my recording so that I could have it up by tonight. It's around 2,000 words, but I think Dutton had some great things to say.

Maybe thing aren't so bad after all

Aside from the fact that I started off this week borderline depressed, it's been a pretty okay week. My pre-orders didn't arrive, but I can live with that. I have an interview with Thomas Dutton on Saturday, and I'll be sending off my questions to both Danger Radio and NEEDTOBREATHE tomorrow or Saturday. I was able to finish both of my articles and my Sociology paper on time. And tonight, for the first time in weeks or maybe months, I'm going to sleep before 11:30. Sure, it sounds lame, but I've been up until 1:30 or later every night this week, and I am excited to just sleep.

Maybe it's just state of mind.

It's one in the morning on Saturday, I'm sitting at my computer with a large list of personal and professional things I'd like to get done this week.
  • Ask out Irina
  • Write Forgive Durden review
  • Write Person L review
  • Decide whether to Write Anthallo/The Love Willows Reviews
  • If yes, write those reviews
  • E-mail FD's manager and lock down interview
  • If interviews get's set up, start to prepare
  • Finish typing up Kevin Devine Interview
  • Do all of my homework
  • Think
Until the first one gets done, nothing besides the last one will. This situation is consuming my entire being. I have a lot of things to get done, but every time I try to put my focus on working, it turns into a secluded self-destructive thought session. I'm hoping that once I ask her out, the tortured thoughts will disappear and I'll be able to sit and think without putting my mental health on a platter for hungry dogs.

Even though it's been a shitty personal week, school and work wise it's all been pretty good. I've gotten some good stuff this week. As I get more acclimated with people and labels things will start to come easier, but the highbeam's small size makes some of these albums hard to get. In the last week though, I've gotten a few big releases through managers that I've worked with or new people. It's always exciting.

Hopefully that first paragraph will change into something positive and my personal world will be filled with happiness. At this point, I'm not even nervous anymore. I've thought about it so much that anything I would think of right before I asked would have already been over-analyzed to nothingness anyway. Razia's Shadow has really helped me this week. The storyline has given me something to think about and analyze besides my own life for a few hours, it's refreshing.

"Look at this mess you've made/It's a 6 foot grave"

Chris Conley belting out those lyrics on Razia's Shadow is absolutely amazing. Nobody can make any excuses that will make not picking up this record okay.

Razia's Shadow
10/22/08 at 09:49 PM by hockeyguitar99
I got the files to start my review today. After one listen, I immediately starting writing my review. This is going to be a daunting and epic task. I don't know if I'll be wrap my head around this album enough to spit out a coherent review on it. I wrote the introduction, which is three paragraphs and over 350 words. It's going to be ridiculously long, but hopefully people will still read it.
