Johnny B's Pics

Here are the pics, just like I promised.

Half-Step, Johnny B's- Provo Ut. 2/25/04
Johnny B's
Fuck yeah! Last nights show was so amazing. Thank you to everyone for coming. We know it was one of the smaller shows we've played in a while ( I think there was like...25 people there or something, hah!) but it had one of the coolest grooves of any of our shows.
My favorite part was when we dedicated Into The Sun to Kohabit, and as soon as the hard part hit everyone was just freaking out and moshing. Fuck yeah! You guys rule! I love Kohabit.
I guess I was scraping up my finger pretty bad on my strings because I looked down at my guitar at one point, and the strings were a rusty red color, and I could see these crimson sparkles inbetween my pick ups on Mackenzi...I was bleeding all over my guitar it was fucking awesome. Except now I have to change out my strings, and give my baby Mack a good rub down. OH well, she likes it when I rub her down.
After the show we went to Dee's with a pretty small group of kick ass people from the show. Steven, the drummer of Kohabit came with us. It was fucking awesome. Steve is really super sexy, I could grab his ass all day. I think Kohabit is the coolest fucking band around. They have so much energy. Jared jumped off the stage and slammed into a bunch of people in the crowd during one of their songs...he just kept screaming the whole time. Kiki and Jay Jay were fucking jocking the strings too...you don't even know. They make the ground shake.
I'll put pics from that show up as soon as I get them...probobly tomorrow.

so I'm losing my mind
The best chance for successfully maintaining control over the thoughts of an out of control psyche is to keep it heavily sedated. Tell it lies, tell it truths...tell it whatever it needs to hear to lay down and die. Maybe it will gurgle an apology from it's open and bleeding throat as you carry it to the garden...kerosine in one hand, a shovel in the other.
Dying slow is the worst thing in the entire world. To have something over your shoulder that you are having to keep at bay with a daily routine of drugs and mental war. Death comes in so many ways but all in the same form. It can only be presented in one medium. It can only be realized by the ones that experience it. It is not possible to die from a broken heart...it is not possible to die by bad luck...or misfortune. Luck, love, and fortune do not live here anymore. They've gone away. There was nothing left for them.

So...what the fuck?

Feb 25 -Provo
177 W. 300 S.
8:00 pm. SHARP!
$5.00 at the door
We know that we don't have a lot of fans in Provo, so we really need everyone's support. And if you guys don't support us, we're not going to support you...this means you crack head bums! No more crack if you don't come.


Fuck it all. I'm sad. I don't get it. I don't understand why everything horrible has to be happening to me all at the same time. I don't understand why my band mates hate me. I'm going to go back to sleep...and when I wake up I'm going to go back to sleep again.

"falling asleep....and we're praying....these are the symptoms of letting go. Cuz we can't compete with modern saints, we douse ourselfs in gasoline and hang our bodies from the lamposts so that our shadows turn into bright lights"
So last night I heard some terrible news about a friend of mine...and I don't even know what to think. But I'm angry, and sad...and I don't understand why things happen the way they do. If there is a God, I can't wait to see his face when he tries to explain things like this to me. I wonder if he's going to look me in the eyes...
I'm sorry. I feel so powerless right now.

Fuck Bush
So I hope that you all checked out those pictures *ahem*. If not, you should stop masturbating, and go look at the pictures...so you can resume masturbating.
Eugene Oregon is the bomb shit. We love everyone from there. Hippies are cool. Just not when they're all old and hate your music because it's not mellow enough, and then they go crazy wild for the mother fucking Rodeo Boys (who were actually really good). Stupid hippies. But Props to Eugene!
Lately I've been feeling really good about things. Theres more of a positive return right now then there usually is. The bad doesn't outweigh the good as much. It's a happy thing. It's taking a lot of stress off of me...but I'm sure that the stress is just instead going to other people, because you can't just erase something like that, you just have to move it. Karma baby.
Well I think I'm going to get stoned and take a hike in the woods. Oh no! Now the whole world knows my terrorist secret! Fuck em. I don't support terrorism...well not by buying pot anyway, I support my friend who needs a few extra bucks and some free weed. Fuck you Bush. Fuck you.

Kilby Court was a blast and a half
Thanks to everyone for coming last night. It was a rocking show, I checked with the guy at the door and he said...once again the Half-Step crowd was the majority of the attendance! You guys are awesome! Our fans are the coolest people ever and we love each and every single one of you.
Also, to anyone who talked any shit on Uh...Fuck you. Uh was way good, and I hope you liked them because we're going to ask them to do some more shows with us. I liked their energy, they had a lot of emotion behind their music without having to be emotional...that's nice. I like bands who understand that in order to say you're hurting, you don't have to say "I'm hurting".
Okay...let's see. Also the pictures from The show are already up on the internet. Well, from one photographer anyway. We're going to have a lot alot ALOT of pictures up here from that show. But here is the gallery link if you want it.

Half-Step hates the Love. Kilby Court - 02/19/04

Oh yeah! And as most of you know, we're going to be playing with the greatest testament to Satan since the bible...KOHABIT on the 25th of February at Johnny B's Comedy club. But what most of you don't know, is how truly great these guys are. So here are some pictures for you...yes! I fucking love Kohabit!

Kohabit, Tearing shit up as usual

Eugene mother fucking Oregon

So I guess we're being played on the college radio in Eugene Oregon. That's fucking cool. We're fucking cool.

Sunday, February 15, 2004

So ummmmm yeah, Fuck off.

I'll bet none of you assholes knew that we were recording did ya? Well we are. SURPRISE! But we're not going to pretend like we know anything and set a release date. It's just going to be like "oh yeah, by the way we have new cd's now" so take that!
Listen to Live and Local every sunday night on X-96 (96.3 for all you fucktards who don't already know) from 8:00 to 10:00 in the PM's. I'm in a bad mood so fuck off.
Oh yeah, and ummm also all of our apologies for the lack of web site updating that has been going on. We are people too ya know...we have lifes too ya know. No, just kidding, we're just here to serve you.
No, but for real we're going to work on the whole updating thing. Our beautiful Website Administrator, Brandoni, has just moved in to a new house that seems to be the only place in the free world that does not have any sort of internet access, so we're going to drill a few holes and get really drunk. What is this going to do to help the internet service? Nothing. But we like drinking, and power tools are cool. Fuck off.
-Dane "fuck off" GoodFUCKOFFman.

ps. Did I mention...FUCK OFF? Cuz if I didn't, FUCK OFF! Okay, done. It's just that time of the month folks.

Fan art
This is a poem that was written by a new fan of ours. She told me that it was inspired by our song Raincheck. It wasn't written through her perspective, but through the eyes of a guy she knows. I think it is beautiful...and if Raincheck had words these would be it. So, enjoy.

There's a girl back home
She'll never be able to forget me
She dreams about me constantly
And as vain as it is for me to say
I will never love her how she wants me too
(She wants me too)

It scares me sometimes
How much she needs me
I prefer solitude
Without her voice ringing in my head
Her infatuation will never be dead

My fingertips can only caress so much skin
All the times I'm intoxicated I feel nothing
Did she know when we met
I was recovering from pills burning through-out my stomach?
The rain reminds me of her
And thats all (The only times I think of her)
Really think of her

She would write about the times we talked
How much it meant and how much it hurt that I left (left)
Well I'm sorry I have a life to live
With love to give
But I can't dedicate forever in her eyes

-Anna Serrone

Yeah...fans are cool. We love you all.

so it's February
And life is a fucking bitch...I'm sorry if that offended any fucking bitches that are reading this entry. I'll try to be more sensitive in my future writing. I'd kill myself, but I'm too pretty to go to prison. And speaking of prison...oral sex is illegal in Utah. What the fuck? No, seriously, what the fuck? How can you make that illegal? It's big brother shit. I urge the youth of this state to engage in oral sex as much as they can. Take every opportunity. We should try to tearn Salt Lake city into an out of control orgy scene. Sodomy, beastiality, dendrophilia, foot fetish shit...you know the works. And let's see if we can get god to show us some fireworks. I don't know...I think the mere existence of Las Vegas discredits the idea of any god that might exist. I mean, that place is a living sin.
Oh yeah, and we've been writing a lot of new material. It's crazy good. CRAZY GOOD!

Dane's January picks
This month has been filled with all sorts of new music for me. I've just been bored I guess and in the mood to spend some mother fucking money. So that's what I did...and I have some ninja turtles toys, and a bunch of cd's to show for it. The rest went to munchies...which are now gone. Damn! Maybe it's not too late to vomit them back up and save it again...yeah it was just that good. Oh yeah, but back to the music. Okay, here we go.

1. The Mars Volta - De-loused in the Cromatorium
2. The Strokes - Room on fire
3. Alicia Keys - Songs in A minor
4. The Used - Maybe memories
5. Foo Fighters - One by one
6. Bucket Head - ummm...it's a mix, heh. GO BUCKET HEAD!
7. Marilyn Manson - Holywood
8. Dave Mathews Band- Lilly White sessions
9. Queens of the Stone Age - Songs for the deaf
10. Him - I can't remember the name of the cd...but they only have one so you should know what I'm talking about.

And that's the fucking awesome music I listened to the most and loved in January. If you want to get your ass handed to you time and time again...listen to that list. Oh yeah, and you can just automagically assume that Half-Step is just on that list so I don't need to put it on there.
