Walter Mitty’s 1st show in ages, Tough Stuff with FOUR members, and Settling cassette release. Give as much as you can to Bridgetown as they’re having some financial difficulties making rent right now. However, if you don’t have much to give they won’t turn you away. Get there on time because they have a cap of 100, and it’s probably gonna be a bigger show. Also word on the street is Walter Mitty’s gonna have another show at VLHS in November.
Please go! All these bands are v good. If you live in soCal it’s gonna be a party.
Yes!!!! If anyone is comin from West LA, help me out with a ride please?

Fuck this is dope
It’s hard for me to believe that ‘Semi-revolutionary’ was recorded in May of 2012. I went back to listen through it today, and it’s still riddled with mediocrity. But hey, at the time, that’s what I was going for. There’s a youthful longing to it, a desire to be more than what it is at face-value, and with the praise I continue to receive for my portrayal of those feelings, it’s safe to say that I’ve trumped it all. When the album was recorded, I hadn’t started playing under the name ‘Just Nick,’ yet. That didn’t start until following months, when it appeared curiously on a show flyer. Along with the name, came a sort of persona. I was the high-school kid who had a lot to say, and instead of saying it, I’d usually sing… err… yell it. It made a lot of sense at the time, and I embraced the hell out of it. I’ve been releasing music and playing shows as ‘Just Nick’ for more than 2½ years now, and today, I strongly believe that it’s time for a change. Within the next month, I’ll be releasing my last few songs for this project, on a split record with my friends in Plastic City Pariah and Ash Williams. The few of you that already know about my decision have voiced your concerns, and I want to ensure that this does not mean that I won’t be making music anymore. My music will always be online (for free!), and I’m going to continue to play solo shows under my full name. It’s simply the next step for me, a clean slate. I want to move onto something that makes sense to me again, something that’s appropriate for this part of my life. I’m no longer the same kid I was when I recorded ‘Semi-revolutionary.’ Sure, I still wear the same ol’ Anthrax t-shirt, but that’s another story.
I want to thank everyone who has supported me thus far. Keep it going, because I need it now, more than ever. In my eyes, you guys are the coolest people on the planet.
Word around the block is that I’ve written a full-length record and intend to release it with a full band that I’m beginning to assemble. Look forward to it.

Actually the best movie ever
Frank Ocean | Wisemen
“Frank Ocean wrote a fantastic ballad that was truly lovely and poetic in every way, there just wasn’t a scene for it. I could have thrown it in quickly just to have it, but that’s not why he wrote it and not his intention. So I didn’t want to cheapen his effort. But, the song is fantastic, and when Frank decides to unleash it on the public, they’ll realize it then.”
— Quentin Tarantino explaining why he didn’t use the song in “Django Unchained.”
When was the last time that you saw a morning
When was the last time that I saw your face
Smiling awake like it was in the old days
Maybe you’re dreaming of then
