Josh and Aj have a beer shotgunning race at Michigan State University. The kids in the background are making fun of Josh for wearing jorts, but they are mistaken. Jorts are Jean shorts that have a hem. Josh is wear jean cut offs. Josh-1, Retards at Michigan State University-0.

The show in Minnesota yesterday was awesome. It was great to see 80 kids come out considering we have never played there before. After the show we grabbed some food at Triple Rock. Nevada and I split an order of Nachos. I enjoyed the salsa. I then crashed really fast. I was tired from driving 11 and a half hours the day before. After a 9 hour night drive, we are now at Jackie Waller’s house in...

We met up with A Loss For Words and Fireworks this morning at a Del Taco in Layton, UT. It was cool seeing the Fireworks dudes. We don’t get to see them often. I think we will be seeing more of them soon though. Keep posted. The van was fixed up with an oil change, new brakes, new fluids, rotated wheels, and a few other small things. I skateboarded for a bit at the venue and then just browsed the...

Play at Submission in San Francisco, CA. The venue was pretty cool. After the show we packed up our things and rushed down the street to see Living With Lions. Unfortunately we were a few minutes too late. On the upside, we got to hang out with them for a few hours. They showed us a new demo for their upcoming record and we showed them a few of our new songs. Those dudes are so rad and I miss them...

This morning I went to Venice Beach with Chris Hansen, Devan Bentley, and Soupy. The new skatepark that has just opened up rules. I really wanted to skate it but I failed to bring my board on this tour. At Venice Beach I also saw some cool tag art. We shortly thereafter went back to Mitch Wojcik’s place for a while. We have been staying with Mitch for the past 3 days. Earlier this week we did a...

A lot of things aggravated me today. I have been feeling a bit overwhelmed lately as far as nerves go (mainly anger, stress, and anxiety). At the show during our set a fight broke out. I’m absolutely sick of people fighting at our shows. I happens on a pretty regular basis. I was so angry that I walked off stage. Though I was not going to finish the set, I took a step back and realized that a few...

I feel awful from eating way too much fast food over the past few days. On the other hand, the shows have been great lately. Chillin in El Paso, Texas. It’s so hot!

Minus today’s weather being miserable, I had a pretty decent day. I started my day off with a shower. We then were given free food from the family we were staying with. They got us fried chicken, corn on the cob, and hush puppies from some awesome restaurant. We then drove to the show. The show was one of my favorites of this tour. It may not have been the biggest but it was just a fun show. Post...

Nothing too exciting happened today other than the show. The show was absolutely amazing though. Who would have thought that Springfield, MO would be a great stop on tour. There were 150 kids there and it was a crazy show. I tried putting a video up on youtube but it got messed up. I will put some videos up within the next few days.
