I am not doing well this year.
I don't even know what to do anymore. I don't want to be here. I hate almost everyone in my life...people are letting me down left and right.

David is really taking a toll on me. Who knows what the hell will come screw me over next week.

oh man. it's been a longgggg time.

so much has gone on... i don't really feel like summarizing my life for all of you though. I'm graduating high school on Thursday. I'm so ready to get out of there. I missed David's graduation party in michigan this weekend to go to a wedding in wisconsin of a girl I've only said 2 words to in my life. I'm still bitter that my mom made me go, but at least I get to hang out with Maryam and Zaki. that's a major plus. they're awesome, and i'm having a good time with them. I'm really glad it's a long weekend... on friday I went to Uncle Bubs (bbq) with David, Nick, Zack, and Ruben. Then from there they went up to David's lakehouse and I went to Buffalo Wild Wings with Rachel, Joey ,Molly and Steph and Mark, oh yeah and Johnny Palumbo. It was alright. My car died, it started smoking profusely from the engine which was scary as hell. and of course I was with Joey who had to come to the rescue... blagh.

In other news, my niece's first birthday party (evne though her birthday was like about a month ago) is this coming saturday! hooray! and Katy's birthday party is on friday at Sal & Carvao which is amazing. This coming week should be a lot of fun.

I need to get a dress/outfit and shoes for graduation. shoes are most important though since that's all you can see when you're wearing a graduation gown. I'm going to go I have to go to a graduation party for one of maryam's friends. peace.

hahaha i hate when people whisper real softly and think no one can hear the,m and then you can obviously hear them whispering, but can't hear them, but know that they're whispering in order to keep it a secret from you because there's only three of you in the entire fucking apartment. hahahah wowwwwww. fucking lame.

Bottom Lounge: Going, Going....

When Chicagoist first learned about the concept of eminent domain—when the government requires you to sell your privately-owned land to them to make way for new roads or other projects—we thought it was a sucky idea. But since the government helps you get a new house, we figured we’d be OK with it if the government helped you buy a mansion or something (we were 12 at the time so logic was not our 2005_03_25_05_bottom.jpgstrong suit). But a mansion is not going to help the folks at the Bottom Lounge, which has been scheduled for demolition under eminent domain as part of the CTA’s Brown Line Expansion Project.

This week’s issue of Time Out Chicago—which finally started arriving in our mailbox before the weekend begins—has the story. After opening Lakeview Links in 1991, owners Brian Elmiger and Phillip Trimble were told in 2001 that the club was to be razed to make way for the expansion of the Belmont platform so it could accommodate eight cars instead of the maximum six. The owners took the name the Bottom Lounge and have been booking live music regularly since then, waiting for the ax to fall. With the recent discussions of closures on the Brown Line, the demolition of the Bottom Lounge seems closer than ever.

But here’s the kicker: though the government is required to help businesses relocate when their property is taken, the article points out that Bottom Lounge’s liquor and all-ages licenses are tied to the property itself—not the owners. So if Bottom Lounge goes, so goes yet another all-ages music venue. With the Fireside Bowl now 21 and over, the spaces for these shows are dwindling. We’ve been noticing a lot of art galleries like Texas Ballroom and the Open End Gallery at Ideotech being re-purposed for live music in recent weeks to accommodate this crowd. Though The Bottom Lounge believes the city’s hostile relationship towards bars and clubs will seal their fate, perhaps the Chicago Music Commission can step in and save the day.

How indie are you?

You're just too cool for school, aren't you? You're pretty narrow minded
and opinionated with regards to music (and probably most other things
as well). But you're allowed to be, because you really are better
than everyone else. You take pride in obscurity.
You probably prefer vinyl too, you elitist bitch.
