Hey, I'm new as you can tell. I adore gob, I didn't even know there was a community for them. If I did, I would have joined a long time ago.

Anywho, I'm Mandy, I'm 18, and I'm from the Chicago area. I'm open for new friends and stuff, so, if you want to add me for some strange reason, go on.

What's A Geek? [30 Apr 2004|01:04am]

I never really understood the term 'geek'. I was called one all throughout my days in school, mostly elementary. But to me, I neve really understood what it meant.

What brings all this up? Standing at work the other day, when it was really slow, I glanced over at the magazine rack at the end of my till [as I tend to do a lot when it's slow] only to see this weeks TV Guide's headlines in BIG PINK LETTERS: [what's with all these shitty headlines being pink?]


From my understanding, being a 'geek' means you don't have the latest fashionable clothes, shoes and accessories, you don't have the right colour hair, you don't have tons of money and you are therefor left to be friends with .... yourself, which doesn't ever help your case any. People pick on you, they remind you of how ugly you are and make your journey's home after school a living nightmare. This is speaking from experience of course ...

So what about the OC makes being a 'geek' hot? If SETH COHEN is the 'geek' they speak of, then TECHNICALLY, he isn't a geek. He has pretty clothes, he has tons of money [I mean, his house has a POOL house ... Most people I know don't have one of those] he is surrounded by friends .... He didn't start out that way, you say? Well, he sure as hell hasn't changed from what I can see. What's different?

For BIG PINK letters to announce 'BEING A GEEK IS HOT' boggles my mind. I can't QUITE put my finger on what part of that statement exactly enfuriates me ... But I find it insulting, rude, intimidating ... and it all comes back to letting tv and media run our lives.

Fuck that.

Is anyone ever allowed to just BE THEMSELVES anymore? Why do we always have to be in on WHAT'S HOT AND WHAT'S NOT?!?! Who decides these things anyway? Who sits down at a desk and says 'I think I'll blow my millions of dollars I earn doing nothing but crushing the little guy, when really I could be doing something better with it, and make people feel awful about themselves b/c it makes ME more money, A ha ha ha ha!' Sick.

It's just wrong on so many levels, I can't even begin to explain how much that headline enrarged me.

Everyday, especially at work, I see little girls, yes LITTLE GIRLS, that are no older than 10-12 years old walking around like they are the 'hot shit' or 'tha bomb' and looking like little trampy-assed whores. They classify it as 'looking good' when really they are just scared, impressionable brats who know shit all. I want to smack them for acting this way, their parents too for allowing it to happen! 'It's just a phase, she'll grow out of it' ... Sorry there Mommy dear, but no she won't. She'll grow up thinking it's okay to behave like a slut to get attention. Parents don't spend time with their KIDS anymore. They just plop 'em down infront of the tube and go off to do their own thing. Children aren't raised by parents anymore. They are raised by machiens, computers ... and we all knew one day it would happen. Well folks it has. And what are we gonna do about it?


Because it's just easier that way.

Well shame on all of us.

news [11 Apr 2004|05:14am]

Hey guys, sorry i haven't posted in a while, i've been a bit distracted.
Anyway we have a bunch of news about Gob, some good, some bad.


that's right kids! we are presently writing a new record that we aim to record sometime in the next few months. not much to say about it now, i don't want to go letting the cat out of the bag or anything.

more news.
again, most of you are already aware of this. due to artistic differences, craig wood is no longer part of gob, he will now strum his guitar for avril lavigne.
sad, but true.
we will go ahead and make our record as a 3 piece. for those that don't understand how a record is made, don't worry! there will definitely be bass on the record. it just wont be played by craig. if we find the right person by the time we record the record, they may play on it or maybe we'll get, i don't know, sid vicious, or the guy from the replacements or maybe jaco pastorius. i hear that dead guys play better. one thing i know for sure, no matter how you slice it, this record will have the best foofoo'n bass EVER on a gob record.
anyway, good luck to craig.
in the meantime, our good friend john franco will be playing bass at our live shows. being that he is the star vocalist for the band byathread, he is overqualified for a bass only position but maybe we can get him to do some italian opera singing at our shows. anyway, it's great have him aboard.
we did a show at mount tremblant this past weekend and it was awesome. we are concentrating on writing a record so we aren't playing many shows but we do have a couple in whistler later in the month so get your asses out to rock with us..."

That was posted by Tom in Gob's blog, at gobfans.com

and now for some tour dates:
Wed, Apr 21 - Whistler - Moe Joes (bar show)
Thu, Apr 22 - Whistler - Village Stage (outdoor/all ages event)
Sat, Jul 3 - Newfoundland show--details tba.

So if you're anywhere near those areas make sure to head out there and see Gob (and John Franco).

and here are some Avril tour dates:
Sun, Apr 25 - Derry-Londonderry - Prehen Playing Fields
Fri, Jun 4 - Germany - Rock Im Park/Rock Am Ring
Sun, Jun 6 - Germany - Rock Im Park/Rock Am Ring
Thu, June 10 - Portugal - Super Bock Super Rock
Sat, Jun 12 - Vienna - Aerodrome
Sun, June 20 - Italy - Heineken Jammin
Sat, Aug 7 - Tokyo - Tokyo Marine Stadium & Messe

So if you're near any of those places, head out to the show and give your support to Craig.

PS. Here's a pic of Craig, Avril, and the rest of her band.

Rubbish ... Complete Rubbish. [07 Apr 2004|07:41pm]

[ mood | indifferent ]

So at work the other day, it was extremely slow. And I was looking at one of the magazines infront of me. YM to be exact. And you know what one of the headlines was? In bright pink letters it said:


Now, what the hell kind of question is that? Does your life suck? I want to write to the "author" of that article and ask them to please define that statment. There are many things in the world that, yes, do suck! But how can you possibly define life as 'suck'? It's not possible! And if one was to say "YES! MY LIFE DOES SUCK!" What the hell is YM gonna tell you that's going too fix that? "Buy some new shoes" or "Put on a little rouge and that guy might notice you and then maybe you'll feel better."

Magazines and the media are so bent on 'improving life' but they never really give you usefull advice, now do they? They just fill your mind with rubbish. Complete rubbish. It's all about looking better which in turn will make you feel better. Bullshit. You turn the page from the 'self-help' article and it's a whore who got paid way to much damn money to pose in the littlest possible amount of clothing that just makes you feel ugly again. Which in turn makes you feel bad about yourself. Which defeats the whole purpose of reading that article.

So what's the point? Why bother spending alomst $10 of your hard earned money just to be right back where you started from? You could have bought someone you love something they wanted but couldn't afford. You could have given it to a poor person who didn't have anything. You could have bought a CD that supported a band trying so desperately to get themselves up and out of their rut.

It all comes back to what is it that makes you happy? Because somehow it does affect someone else's happiness.

You don't need some fancy-shmancy "writer" in New York to tell you what is right and what is wrong in the world of happiness. So what if you don't own 20 pairs of shoes? So what if you don't have a car? Or if you do, so what if it doesn't have 'spinner' rims, or a shiney paint job and leather seats?

I own an '89 red Ford Ranger. It's old, it's faded, it doesn't run all that great. [pretty good for it's age I must say though] The worst part is the stereo sounds horrible. It carckles, turns up really loud if you bump the volume control and clicks when I put in a CASSETTE TAPE. But I still drive around like I am the best. I snub my nose at the primp & fluff blondies in their suped-up sports cars and nice systems. Chances are Mommy and Daddy bought it for them or they had to suck a lot of cock to get the money to afford it. My boyfriend, Mikey, and I both drive vehicles that were once owned by our grandparents. Handed down to us. Old, very used and not so pretty. And we both work damn hard to keep them running. And both of us act like we own the road. And as we should. I like my truck b/c it's mine and I worked for it. Mike loves his car b/c whatever he's done to it he's worked really hard to do.

It's just so pathetic that little girls are being spoon-fed this rubbish everday of their lives. Much Music, Magazines, TV shows ...... Everywhere they turn.

So here's what I want anyone who reads this to do. Tell me ... "Does your life suck?" And if you can actually define that statement and answer that question with a yes ... tell me how.

And then I will turn around and delete you from my list b/c you obviously are so infulenced and brainwashed by the media and you have no self esteem to the point where you not only take in all this bullshit ... you actually believe it.

My something that makes me happy for today:

~ Driving with the windows down playing music everyone else hates.

Fucken Yuck ... [01 Apr 2004|08:14pm]

[ mood | disappointed ]

How hard is it for you to walk over to a garbage can and throw your crap in there? Honestly?

[ mood | energetic ]

I love when there is some sunshine to brighten up a day. Even if it's only a little bit, it always feels good.

Speaking of feeling good ... who feels good anymore? Do you? If so, tell me what it is that's making you happy. How much you wanna bet that 90% of people say 'all the money I make'? Or things like 'My new car!' ... *smacks self* It's a shame that possessions are what gives people the feeling of wholeness.

I am going to make a list of all the things that make me happy, that are things I could never buy and therefor priceless:

= Waking up to the sound of the children playing at the elementary school behind my house.
= The sound of my boyfriends voice when he tells me good news or that he loves me.
= My puppy curled up right against my back in my chair while I type this.
= The smell of a freshly cut lawn.
= The sight of people exchanging hugs.
= The feeling I get when I hear my boyfriends car.
= Sitting and having my morning smoke and coffee with my Mom ... Those talks are the most memorable.
= The sound of the dogs feet on the ground as they race by.
= To make someone laugh.
= The feeling of my boyfriends lips.
= To be the person someone cries to.
= The thought of someday having kids.
= The sun shining through my house.
= Kissing when the stars are endless and the moon is radiant.
= My cabin ... The Mounains during the day and the countless stars at night.
= Music. Music that can make me jump up and dance one song but break down and cry the next.
= The feel of my boyfriends hands through my hair.
= The rush as my dog crosses the finish line.
= Flowers ... I means summer is comming
= When it just snows. The quiet it leaves behind is amazing.
= My puppy jumping all over me when I walk in the door. He missed me.

That's 20 things right there off the top of my head. If I went into a real deep thought I am sure I could come up with so much more. Some of you will probably think alot of that is rubbish or mushy yuck stuff, but those are the things in life that really matter and that I will remember for the rest of my life.

I hope to see some other people post things like that. Things that make you smilie or feel good but don't cost a penny.

Everyone is too depressed now-a-days. As am I, but I am making an effort to make myself feel better about life. Try it. Once a day I am going to post something that made me laugh or smile or feel good about myself in my journal. I hope other follow ........

Turn up your favorite song really loud and just dance like no one's watching. And sing as if you were a professional. You'll feel fabulous after.

*does a little dance*

"Get in, give us your money, and get the fuck out." [24 Mar 2004|11:15am]

[ mood | mellow ]

We live in a GO GO GO kinda of world. Get there an hour early and then get indignant when we have to wait. Everyone is always in a rush to get where or what they want. There's no patience, there's no sitting back and waiting anymore. It's all about faster cars, faster internet, faster food and we all expect it cheap, cheap, cheap.

I work in a place where we have a competition between other employees with the same job title. Whoever's the fastes at the end of the week gets a prize. Who ever has most improved gets a prize ..... It's all about making us the fastest. Get in, give us your money, and get the fuck out.

Driving to and from work the past month or so I've come to notice how much more traffic there is on the raod. There's now more people rushing, there's more people fighting to be first in line, there's just more people everywhere I turn. When I look at the state of people's driving it 9 times out of 10 isn't up to driving standards. [I know, I shouldn't critisize, but just let me finish] People run red lights, b/c they don't want to sit and wait the 2.5 minutes it will take for other people to pass by eachother infront of them. People can't make it through crosswalks without someone cutting infront of them or inching their vehicle closer and closer to intimidate them to walk faster. Even the crosswalk lights aren't long enough for someone of senior status to make it accross without the light changing on them. Which then leads to people getting anxious at them b/c they are taking up their 'it's my turn to go!' time.

Okay, so I can't judge all people who drive fast. There are some people who drive fast just b/c it's fun. I happen to be one of those people. It's for the rush, not b/c there's a '2% off everything in the store' sale at Ikea that I just can't miss b/c heaven forbid I NOT buy more useless things for my already crowded house.

As I am sitting here typing this, the garbage men just came through my co-op. They came and went in less than a minute. Having left pieces of garbage all over the ground. Things that didn't make it into the truck. I guess the 30 seconds it would have taken them to pick it up would have been out of the question. That 30 seconds cuts into their time of leaving garabge all over the ground in someone elses front yard.

I wish society would just let people sit back and take a look around. To stop and think about what I just said there ...... I don't know if it's entirely society's fault. I think to blame society is just an easy way out. We can choose to shut up for a minute and just look around. To take a walk and enjoy the beauty the world has to offer. b/c I do it. I sit and look out my window at all the trees and birds that fly past my window here. I even watch the crows as they tear up our garbage looking for something to eat as we have purched ourselves on what they would originally called their home 200 years ago. Back to what the point I was tryig to make before I got sidetracked ... Sure society plays some part in our fast paced lives, infuencing us into this GO GO GO way of life. But we have to have some control over it all. There has to be a point where we say 'I've had enough' and just sit back, and watch the world go by.

I strongly urge any of you to just take a day and forget about how little money you have, stop worrying about school, work or the divorce. [<~ If your parents are too stupid to grow up and realize they are acting like petty 12 year old children, then let then ruin their own lives. You ARE strong enough to stay out. You just have to allow yourself to realize that.] Take a walk. Actually do as the saying says: Stop and smell the roses. LIfe is too short to be GO GO GO and NOW NOW NOW. Put down the 'dicks, grab an apple and sit out side.

Do nothing and enjoy it.

blah... [19 Mar 2004|09:54am]

[ mood | amused ]

hey people. I'm new. I have been listening to gob for about 2 years after my friends introduced me to them. and i have been addicted to their music ever since.
I dont have any major stories about any of their concerts i have been to since I am too cheap to go out and buy tickets for any kinda concert. i have only had one big gob thing happen to me and it was tragic (besides the fact that they went on tour with Avril)
Last summer my radio station was at the mall and a whole bunch of my friends and i went to go and check it out. they had a whole bunch of contest going on so i signed up for a 100 doller gift certificate to go shopping i guess i sighned up to win a GOB skate board also. But i didnt know. that stupid fagot didnt tell me when she was suppsoed to. ok well any ways my friend was there when they called the name for it. and they happnd to call out my name! an i was gone shopping so i missed it couse the person didnt tell me to stay and see if i got called! and now i didnt end up with the skate board. pluse it was sighned by the band GOB along with concert tickets to see them live from a concert hosted by my radio station! i was so mad! and instead some old dude got my stuff! errr. that made me so mad. u would think they would call u instead or something on the phone.

yes there is my tragic story. o well im over it now. but every now and then it still gets me ticked...

Poweful? More Like Powerless ..... [16 Mar 2004|12:55am]

[ mood | discontent ]

It's funny that when I sit in this little room of mine that I like to call my 'office' and type my life away onto a page that means nothing to anyone else ... Thinking all the troubles I am going through with 'boys' or 'friends' or 'money' actually matters ... Somewhere, someone else is dying. Losing their son, daughter, mother, father, brother or sister to weakness. The world is consumed by hate, fear and regret. I watch as my family rips apart at the seams and falls into what is going to soon be called poverty. And soon it will be I under the microscope that sits on the shelf gathering dust.

I don't feel sorry for myself. Just angry at the world I live in. I wish I could go back into time and kick the ass[s] of the asshole[s] that decided money is what would make this world work ........ I don't want it, I hate money. I hate what it does to people. I hate how in order to live you must have it. Food and water must be paid for .... two HUGE nesessities of life and unless you're rich, you don't get any. I'm suprised there is no price on love yet. Oh wait, there is. It's called Valentines Day. Or Christmas. Or Anniversaries. To sum that all into one word: Hallmark.

Is it wrong to place my head down on my pillow every night in fear? In fear of the higher of man who is controlling MY life and MY future with his egotistical, self-ritous self-pride that forces him to need to be the best? His title is 'President' but his ego wreaks 'pompus asshole.' What is he fighting for? Face? B/c it was lost long ago. When someone put a price on life there was nothing left to fight for. And yet the world is contuing to fight. To fight a battle that makes everyone lose. The world is obsessed with death. Morbid death. They talk about it as if it's terrible, while deep down inside we can't change the channel or not look at the pictures. We can't not tape shows and news broadcasts about September 11th b/c we WANT to remember. We WANT to see the blood and gore. It's like death is all we know anymore. All of a sudden, my so called 'priceless' life changed meaning. It's priceless to the man who has to prove his dirt is more important than my family's well-being or my children's future. What are we fighting for?

There is so much beauty in the world. And yet we focus so much on the ugly. That sounds like I am quoting American Beauty, doesn't it? Even so, it's the truth. Who sits and watches the starts anymore? Who sits and reads a book under a tree? Who takes a walk in the park with a friend and their dog? Unless it's to 'get healthy' .... no one. What about our minds health? I don't think you can have phyical health without mental health. People need to laugh. People to need to smile. People need to wake up from their zombie-like state of mind and realize we are only given so much time on this earth. Take what good you can from it and run like hell. When you find a good tree to sit under, take all that good and read it. And realize tomorrow is another day. Another day closer to heaven ... or hell. I say heaven. I think this micoscopic shadow we call home is hell.

Shut Your Fucking Mouth!! [06 Feb 2004|08:22pm]

[ mood | frustrated ]

Does anyone else have trouble influencing people to do what GOB says and just give up the grudge and shut your fucking mouth? Is it really that hard for people to do such a thing? Why does everyone have to be so angry or depressed or judgemental all the time? I want to meet people that are just looking to have a good time, that can think I am good looking or the most hideous person they've ever seen but not care b/c they like me for me. -=sigh=- Do people like that actually exsist?

Sorry, But I needed to vent at some people that weren't going to yell at me for it ;)

Thanks for listening ... Or reading ;)
