Today is my last class lecture at ASU as an undergrad. I realized something on my bike ride over to campus: I was on a bright red bike. Tealy-green and pinky-orange and black curls tousling in the wind. Leaving a house full of boys I adore on my way to hold office hours as the station manager at… Here’s the thing. You are more than you wanted to be. You used to say that station...
I don’t see well lately. I’m missing a lot of words that I usally hear. My thoughts take up all my senses. I’m aloof and scattered. Never have I been more uninterested in what people are saying. I pride myself on listening well and relating well. But lately my vocabulary consists mostly of, “Oh yea?” and “That’s awesome” or “That sucks”...
I think when we are younger we all take advantage of time. We don’t really recognize how precious it is. In fact, I spent most of my childhood wishing time could go faster. I scoff at the notion that there was a time when I was ever bored. I think as we get older we both consciously and subconsciously try to slow things down. When we graduate from college maybe we take some time and...

Corey: Ah shit, the thing fell on the floor.

Corey: Dammit. I knew halfway through saying that it would come out wrong. But what could I do at that point?
The Lone "Doe"
I don’t talk about my theatre life very often because… well I’ve kind of moved on. But there are some really excellent memories that are attached to my years doing theatre. This is one of my favourites of all time. In high school, when we got into the advanced theatre class we were in what was called a “Tour Group” which meant nothing except that we would put on a...
Road Trip Buzzkill
The worst buzzkill on a road trip is when you hit bumper to bumper traffic. I get so mad because I’m all pumped up and ready to go and then Bam! Hour lost… It gets to the point where you think, “somebody better have died to slow traffic up this much” which then makes me feel like an awful person. Sigh.
A message from Dustin and Doug Kensrue
mistersweaters: April 25th, 2010 Hey everyone. I apologize that the tour had to be cancelled but I had to get home to be with my Dad. He has an aggressive tumor in his brain and will be undergoing surgery this week. He wanted to convey his apologies as well (though I’m sure you’ll agree it’s unnecessary,) and also his thanks for your support of the band and our family. The tumor is near the...
Time for an off night
This week has been great, but Monday and Friday were weird. I’ve been scatterbrained both days and have not been clicking with people. I’m going to take the rest of the night and steer clear of people. I’m not angry or brooding or anything, I just need to get my mind off of everything and nothing. I’m going to record a song this weekend, hope that goes well.
I’ll be recording my 5 or 6 song EP with Kyle from Hazel and Vine in his studio sometime in late May - June. I’m not sure which songs I’m going to put on there yet, but I’m hoping to get a good mix of my styles on there. I’ll definitely have some different people singing/playing instruments on it. I’m excited and terrified. I hope it comes out well.
I woke up this morning and felt refreshed. I showered, ate breakfast, and got to work by 8:00am. It was raining pretty hard but I wasn’t bothered. I got into the office and was immediately productive. My coworker who is a morning person couldn’t shake her exhaustion, meanwhile I, not a morning person, was feeling great and I hadn’t even had caffeine. My other coworker...
It provides me the greatest joy and the sincerest frustration. I never enjoy it as much as I should and I always want more. It haunts me and holds me to standards I cannot keep. When it is finally ready for me, my body seems to shut down. Sometimes I wonder if time is God himself, trying to manipulate us into our free will. Just making days go by faster or making weather bad so we can’t do...
Music is making me giddy
Clearly there are too many musicians I want to work with. This week alone I’m working with three people. On Wednesday I’m jamming with Spencer and Erica and maybe David. Spencer is a pretty awesome pianist and has this beautiful tenor voice. Erica is a classically trained pianist and piano player. I’ve written songs with each of them in mind. Spencer and I are going to throw down...

Running Late to Class Again
I have about a month left of this class. I can’t wait to wake up on saturdays, take my time, and spend most of the day on music, reading, or writing again and then have the energy to go out at night Instead, I have to rush and get ready to go to this class for 4 and a half hours. Joy! Maybe I’ll hit “The Beat” record store on the way home and pick up a vinyl? That sounds...
I could go the way you do, but I walk with my own shoes. I was only you.

This is the link to the zip file. It is 19 songs in total. I think you’ll all enjoy them quite a bit. These are the various guitar/singing styles I’m working on. For individual tracks, go here to download. http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=c822f664a9d8703cab1eab3e9fa335ca7d47af199a1b0a24
I live my life in the gray.
Where I Fit In
Let me try to explain, not necessarily for anyone else but more to get in touch with what the hell is going on with me. I’m probably just very spoiled. I just got a good job that pays really well. I’m going to a great school starting in August. I have this path set where I can work through my career, earn my degree and set myself up for my MBA, and pay off my debt/save money by the...
The world adores me from far away, but when they get close they falter and sway
I may be slowly slipping into insanity
I don’t know what’s going on. I just spent the last 5 hours sleeping. I can’t do anything at work and my mind isn’t where it needs to be. I’m not in a slump so much as my mind is just non-functional. I think I’m starting to lose direction again.
Remnants of Uncertainty: Laid Down →
dt2steve: Some rough guitar tracks for two new songs I’m writing. The second one was definitely more complete (it already has the verse, the chorus, and the lyrics). I laid down a vocal track but I need to work on the timing of the song/rework some of the lyrics. I have to say I’m a bit frustrated though… Oh man, I can definitely relate. I actually have about 6-7 songs I just want to track...

I love taking a class, not buying or reading the textbook, and STILL getting an A on the midterm.
is in a month. Talk about irrelevant. I’ll be 22. All my awesome birthdays have passed me by. Now I only have the 5’s and 0’s to look forward to (25, 30, 35, 40, etc), but I’ve passed the 16, 18, 20, 21 milestones. :(

I want to see what you create. I do. I can promise you I’ll think it’s beautiful. 100% promise. Thank you. It’s all going to be right here. More songs and lyrics coming soon.
It is strange to me that with creativity seems to come isolation and pain.– (via cassusriff) To see the world like no one else means you have to be alone. Or so you think. When you put your art out there suddenly a thousand hands will raise, slowly, as if to say “me too.” (via lanibelle) (via thismodernlovee) I’m still waiting for that moment. I wrote this quote...

When I get home
I very often get in that terrible purgatory of being too tired to do anything but not tired enough to sleep. Or I take a nap. Either way, time passes that I would rather be playing guitar, cooking, or working out. Basically, I need to sleep more at night so I’m not dead at the end of a work day.
I'm Getting Scared of Where My Mind Is Heading...
I’m almost 22 and a few months ago I was on this path to growing up too fast. Suddenly all these young thoughts are in my mind again. My creative mind is blowing up.

All my friends are starting to buckle down into the real world and I’m already here but I’m trying to get my alternate...

But I’m not doing anything really. Taking a mental health day. Doing laundry, cleaning, and recording some guitar tracks. I’m in the living room watching golf right now (it’s weird to me too) and my phone is in my room. I’ll get it later I suppose.
Why does everything suck right now? I’m in a bad mood.
