Concept: public access late night horror tv show where I’m the host but instead of a “Queen of darkness” vamp im a normal innocent teenage girl home alone at night or babysitting after the kids have gone to sleep and I introduce each movie cuddled up on the couch in my jeans and sweater but I give camp/low budget line delivery like when Rose McGowan says “please mr Ghostface I want to live to the sequel” in Scream. It would be so iconic and cute and relatable IMHO! But public access is dead.
What she means:
2016. 2000 AND FUCKING 16. 2015 was like THE BEST YEAR in pop punk since 2005. All the up and coming bands released new music and a couple older ones like All Time Low and Mayday Parade joined in too and I didn't think any year could be better. BUT OH HOW I WAS WRONG because EVERY BAND FROM 2000 IS RELEASING NEW MUSIC IN 2016. NEW BLINK. NEW RELIENT K. NEW SUM 41. NEW ALL AMERICAN REJECTS. NEW GOOD CHARLOTTE. NEW STARTING LINE. NEW SIMPLE PLAN. AND THATS JUST WHATS ALREADY BEEN ANNOUNCED. HOW COULD I POSSIBLY BE FINE RIGHT NOW IM ABOUT TO EXPLODE IM SO EXCITED
Well, today, one of the neighbors called the cops as she was walking down the street with a small child (not even at her house) and came into the parking lot while on her phone still right in front of the band parents as the band was taking parade laps for the upcoming Memorial Day parade. Here’s the rest of the story:
Today was the first time playing outdoors since the last neighbor incident. We were outside in the daylight at about 3:50pm (NOT 9pm). This was one last rehearsal to try to get used to the heat and marching after 6 months off from marching and getting some first timers used to playing and moving in parade formation. Unfortunately, it was cut a bit short by a visit from one of the neighbors and then the cops. The cop was just doing his job. We decided to just go inside and pack up while the band director talked to the police officer.
We were playing a medley of America the Beautiful, God Bless America, The Star Spangled Banner, and other patriotic favorites. Such a great arrangement done by our very own band director.
With that being said, please come show your support this Sunday at Rahway’s annual Memorial Day Parade! We’d love to see your smiling faces. Sure, many kids our age would rather be partying, going to the beach, or just hang around and be lazy, but our students feel honored to be invited to march and would rather perform in this parade each year to honor those who have served and sacrificed their lives to make ours possible. It is just our way of giving thanks and carrying on a tradition set and based off of military bands from even before our country existed. None of this seems like a crime to me. #SaveTheRahwayMarchingBand
“We all come from different places, and different walks of life, but the goal is right there on the horizon, and if there’s one thing I’ve noticed, it’s that even in our faults, we all seem to be aware of the need for change as a new generation: That we should forget our differences and lend a helping hand. Don’t trip each other up as we stride toward something better.”
