It has been calculated that human beings spend one-third of their lives sleeping. Assuming I get eight hours of sleep a night, and since there are twenty-four hours in a day, that sounds about right.
When I think about it, that’s an awful lot of time. While sleep is a necessity, there are other things I spend a whole lot of time doing.
Worrying is one of those things. I have no way of calculating how much I worry, but it is certainly too much - especially lately.
I don’t listen to music because I “like” it, and I don’t listen to music because it’s “fun”. I listen to music because it makes me feel something that I haven’t been able to find anywhere else. As I get older, I don’t think that I ever stop looking, or at least wanting, to make that connection, no matter how many times I’ve made it in the past.
There has been a considerable amount of chatter lately from some Fall Out Boy fans in regard to what we, as a band, do with our time after we play a show for you guys. Certain folks feel entitled to certain things. What is expected out of us, past a great rock show, seems to perplex me.

Yeah, that happened.
First Impressions: Paramore - ‘Paramore’ (2013). I’ve listened to this album 5 times before I wrote this. This is by far their most diverse album. There aren’t any songs sounded the same. They went for a really diverse range of guitar, bass, drums, and synth integration. Each song has its own style, and I commend Paramore for that. If you ever listened to Paramore for Haley’s vocals then you are in for a treat. If you only listened for fast rock songs then I can see why it may not be your cup of tea. This album is going to be a grow-er yet it’s a very intelligent pop record. This band can do no wrong in my eyes.
I think somewhere Josh Farro is crying to himself (“Let ‘em spill their guts cause one day they’re gonna slip on ‘em”!)
