Context – not having the morning I wanted
I’m riding my bike to the Indiana Dunes (~65 miles) today to test all my gear for my upcoming Madison trip. I was going to do some morning pages and some yoga and chill for a bit before leaving at 7:00.
It’s 7:02. I’ve done neither of those things.
Instead I had a panic attack because I forgot to write a post yesterday. Then I remembered that my buddy told me about this band straight out of a Starting Line video, Neck Deep. So I thought “I’ll listen to them while I make and eat breakfast and get my blog done this morning.”
Then I check a messenging service I use and that same friend told me that BRAND NEW HAS A NEW ALBUM OUT. It’s new. It’s out. It’s called Science Fiction. I thought I was pre-ordering it, but really I was just buying it. Like you do.
But now it’s 7:04 and my phone broke and my backup iPod won’t connect to my computer so I won’t get to listen to this until sometime tonight maybe and all I want to do is apprciate Brand New.
Oh, and to top it off, WordPress isn’t uploading images for some reason. Because of course they aren’t.
So now I’m in a tizzy. I have to go finish packing and start riding my emotions away. More on Brand New as it develops.
Oh, and Neck Deep is some straight out of 2004 pop-punk/emo. So like if you miss New Found Glory or Cartel but don’t want to listen to new music by those bands, give these guys a listen. Can’t tell if I love it or not, but props to them for sticking the landing.
