What A Great Idea!

Ok, so I just saw a preview for a new VH1 show called Gene Simmons’ Rock School. This show is about the famous KISS musician Gene Simmons teaching a school of children who normally play classical music to play rock music. What an original idea, I am in shock that someone came up with this idea. I think that this is probably the biggest idea since the light bulb. Gene Simmons I think you are going to teach these kids to respect rock music and I would imagine that they will in turn play some kind of show and wow the audience. I can’t wait to see what the kids think of changing their style. I hope that you call Jack Black, this sounds like something that he would want to be a part of. ‘Cough’ ‘cough’ rip off! Sorry I had to clear my throat. Anyway moving on to how I feel today, I feel like I need some improvement in my life. I feel, I feel like, well like this,

"More Than Useless"

I feel like, I would like
To be somewhere else doing something that matters
And I'll admit here, while I sit here
My mind wastes away and my doubts start to gather

Whats the purpose? It feels worthless
So unwanted like I've lost all my value
I can't find it, not in the least bit
and I'm just scared, so scared that I'll fail you

And sometimes I think that I'm not any good at all
And sometimes I wonder why, why I'm even here at all
But then you assure me

I'm a little more than useless
And when I think that I can't do this
You promise me that I'll get through this
And do something right
Do something right for once

So I say if I can't, do something significant
I'll opt to leave most opportunities wasted
And nothing trival, that life could give me will
Measure up to what might have replaced it

Too late look, my date book
Is packed full of days that were empty and now gone
And I bet, that regret
Will prove to get me to improve in the long run

And sometimes I think that I'm not any good at all
And sometimes I wonder why, why I'm even here at all
But then you assure me

I'm a little more than useless
And when I think that I can't do this
You promise me that I'll get through this
And do something right
Do something right for once

I’m a little more than useless
And I never knew I knew this
Was gonna the day, gonna be the day
That I would do something right
Do something right for once

I notice, I know this
Week is a symbol of how I use my time
Resent it, I spent it
Convincing myself the world's doing just fine
Without me
Doing anything of any consequence
Without me
Showing any sign of ever making sense
Of my time , it's my life
And my right, to use it like I should
Like he would, for the good
Of everything that I would ever know

I'm a little more than useless
When I think that I can't do this
You promise me that I'll get through this
And do something right
Do something right for once

I’m a little more than useless
And I never knew I knew this
Was gonna the day, gonna be the day
That I would do something right
Do something right for once

BACK HOME!

Ahhh, it’s good to be home! Incase you didn’t know I was in Chicago over the weekend. Not that I didn’t have fun, but coming home always puts that warm feeling in your heart. I went down for the annual Wizard World Convention, with Kyle, Tom, and my cousin Adam. We had a blast; the first two days of the convention were great, especially since we got in through a door that was for vender use only. It was awesome we were in the convention before anyone was allowed to get in. The first day we didn’t really know that we were getting in before the rest of the people, it was an accident. Once we knew about that entrance, there was no stopping us the next day; we did the exact same thing. The third day it didn’t work, but it wasn’t a bid deal since there were no exclusive toys to get that day anyway. You can bet on, us trying that again next year! The other really fun part of the trip was when we realized that the TV remote worked on every TV in the hotel. We would walk the hallway turning off everyone’s TV, it was hilarious. On the way to the convention Kyle was driving and he hit a bat. The bat got stuck in the hood of the van, PITA back off, it was an accident. Anyway that’s my five minute recap, enjoy!
