Well, I got my Gorillaz figures last week! <3 They're so cool and I will eat them! 2D's head falls off like every three seconds, but I don't care, I love them anyway (2D is my favorite, but don't tell the others). Now I'll have to make a bunch of retarded videos with them and completely soil their glory and dignity.
We had the talent show on the 9th... I don't remember if I wrote about it or not. But yeah, it went really well. It made me really realize how much I want to be famous. I want to be able to do that every day, to stand on stage and make the things inside come out in words that people actually respond to, I want to make people feel the music like so many people have done for me. It's almost like a zen thing for me, being on stage and singing like that, seeing the way people react, making people actually LISTEN... for once not just being the weird kid in the back of the class... for once actually being in my element. Every time we have a talent show or choir concert, every time I sing, I feel like I'm exactly where I belong. So, I don't care how it happens, or when, and I know I'll also be writing, but I really want my job to be to stand there on stage night after night and sing. And to have the power that being famous brings you... the power to make a difference, and to change things that need changing. People listen to you when you're famous. People CARE about what you have to say.
Which is why I'm really hoping the band will work out. Even though singing is what I love most, I still love my bass, but I'm not that great at it. And then Natalie doesn't have a drum set and can't afford to buy one, we're all still in school (well, I graduate in 2 months, but then Natalie won't be graduating for 6 years, and the others have 5 years to go). None of us know how to play our instruments, besides Sammy who rules at life. And we can't afford a recording studio... and my lyrics are messed up to the point where they're so cryptic that they make no sense. XD I'm not complaining. I'm just trying to figure out our obstacles. Oh well. Somehow, no matter what it takes, I know we'll make it eventually. Because we've already declared ourselves the world's greatest band (LAWLZ), and that's a little too big of a claim to make and not try our asses off to get somewhere, even if we were joking when we said it.
Natalie decided that we're called Second Dimension, by the way, without anyone else's input. She's a nazi, but we love her XD
