A few months ago I got into a little dispute with someone advertising their jewelry for sale in some DIY community when I pointed out that it is in fact illegal to sell Hello Kitty and Gloomy Bear designs. They responded that it's ok because I everyone does it. I said that's no excuse and it's unethical, they told me to fuck off.

And today I see in my friends list another Etsy widget with the same sort of stuff, possibly from the same person. The description under it: "All of my jewelry is designed, cut & assembled by me. All of it is genuine acrylic. :)" Really? You designed Hello Kitty?

Transit show tonight was a bunch of babbys (average age was maybe 16). There were like 10 kids who loved Transit and everyone else who was just sort of...there. I didn't see most of the openers, so idk if kids were there for them or they just went to the show to be cool or something. Transit killed as always though. They played a brand new song, but that's more boring than exciting tbh.

The show last week at somebody's basement in Lowell with Make Do And Mend was wayyy better. So much positive energy and no effing high schoolers. Plus I talked to like 5 kids who were like "I see you at every Transit show." I did not run into any of them tonight. Hopefully I'll see them more at other shows, because I always go by myself and it would be nice to have friends.

Hello internets, let me tell you about my problems.

Yesterday my car made a funny noise. Today I find out that that little noise is actually my power steering column, which has a few problems, and will cost me $2300 to fix. $2300
$2300

Given that my car also needs some spark plugs replaced and will need a new timing belt soon, I'm not even sure if the car is worth that much. And then there's just the slight little problem of me not having that much money. And with the hours I'm working right now, it will be like 6 months before I do.

This car is what I spent my live savings (ages 13-20) on, and now I pretty much have the choice between throwing it away or getting myself into debt.

All the while I am trying to save money to not live with my parents and it looks like that will never happen. sorry Colin, I love you, but I am stuck :(

read my blog bitches: http://www.thebargainlife.com



In the past 2 months I've bought a total of 6 records, the 4 pictured and 2 pre-orders that haven't come yet.

the collection right now:

Set Your Goals - Mutiny! LP - brown
Four Year Strong - Rise Or Die Trying LP - purple/yellow
Fireworks - Adventure, Nostalgia, and Robbery 7" - yellow/green
The Wonder Years - Won't Be Pathetic Forever 7" - black

pre-orders:
Set Your Goals - Reset 7" - mint green
The Wonder Years/All Or Nothing - Distances 7" - white w/ red and blue splatter

I don't know if this is a worthwhile collection or if I'm just wasting my money. I stopped buying band t-shirts over a year ago because I have so many t-shirts and the $15 band tees weren't getting worn any more than all my 50-cent thrift store tees, so buying them was clearly a waste. I don't have shirts for any of the bands I own vinyls of because I've only gotten into most of them in the past year, and I wanted to support them by buying something. I'm also really into album art, so it's cool having it full size. So far, so good. But here's the catch...i don't own a record player. So I've bought 6 records and I don't have anything to play them on. Now that seems like a waste.

CD/Radio/Turntable Combo - $50 (Johns Creek)
This new "old style" Philco has it all - It plays CD's, Records (45 and LP's) and has a radio. Bought as a Christmas present and used a couple of times. Just like new!



maybe this would balance out the fact that i've bought 5 records in the past few weeks and have nothing to play them on. but i'm out of town for another week and i don't think i care enough to make my roommate buy it for me.

i got this dresser off craigslist for $10 a while back. it's particleboard and laminate and kinda flimsy, but it has nice clean lines and that's all i need. i decoupaged it with magazine pieces because i was worried that newspaper would yellow.
