My 2003 Memory Post [31 Dec 2003|01:27am]
I really don't remember much from the first half of the year. I remember crying a lot. I'm not ashamed to admit it.

I remember my grandparents' 50th anniversary party.

I remember everything about Gatlinburg. The bus ride up, wanting what I couldn't have. Getting to the hotel and putting my bags down, having Evan come into the room and rub my head in the carpet, and Dave come in and fart in my face. Mike Hancock getting stuck between the bed and the wall. The performances. The bus ride(s) home. Sitting on the bus making top 10 lists of various things. Playing the movie game with a lot of people, but mostly Amy Amir. And being so engrossed in playing the movie game that we took the paper with us when we went to Wendy's to eat. Shoney's in Calhoun, GA. Football in the Shoney's parking lot. The gas station across the street with Subway.

I remember State. I remember Terpsichore. Obviously.

I remember graduation. I remember crying. (Shut up, I loved Evan and Dave. Sue me.)

I remember pre-band camp. Being excited about first part.

I got my braces off.

I remember the random IM from a random screenname I'd never seen before that said "I love you." I remember asking Anthony who it was and finding out it was Katie Upchurch. I remember speaking to her for 6 hours (midnight-6 AM) and until 4 AM. I remember our first date, our first kiss...and everything between then and tonight.

I remember being in the hospital in Tampa because I had a reaction to something.

I remember my grandpa's 70th birthday party.

I remember hearing Brett tell me at 2 in the morning that his grandpa died. I remember the way I felt. I remember the wait at the hospital. I remember the look on Brett's face.

I remember band camp.

I remember the first day of school. I remember being disappointing about 4th part in jazz band, excited about history, excited about 2nd part in concert band, looking forward to Spanish, indifferent about math, realizing I wouldn't pass the English AP exam, and indifferent about chemistry. I remember realizing that CC and I would become close.

I remember the History study group and the TGI Friday's dinner.

I remember my party.

I remember seeing Steely Dan in concert.

I remember Vero. I remember standing behind the fence and talking with TJ and Mr. P about superheroes.

I remember sneaking in through the kitchen of Miami Subs.

I remember the Halloween rehearsal.

I remember FBA.

I remember Homecoming.

I remember watching the Marlins in the playoffs. I remember having Rob Garay, Rob Wiggenhorn, Anthony, Jillian, and...who else? Lyle maybe? sorry...over to watch the final game of the World Series.

I remember EPCOT. I remember Mission Space.

I remember LJ drama.

I remember Hanukkah at my aunt's, Hanukkah at my grandparents', and Hanukkah at home.

21 and a half hours from now when we enter the third (not fourth) year of the millennium, I want you all to remember that I love you all.

So that knocks down the list of CDs I want to:

11 Tracks of Whack - Walter Becker
Concert for George - Various Artists

Question 1 is for all you pro-choice liberals out there :-D


Question 1:
If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had 8 kids
already, three who were deaf, two who were blind,
one mentally retarded, and she had syphilis, would you
recommend that she have an abortion?

Read the next question before looking at the answer
for this one.

Question 2:
It is time to elect a new world leader, and only
your vote counts. Here are the facts about the three
leading candidates.

Candidate A - Associates with crooked politicians,
and consults with astrologists. He's had two
mistresses. He also chain smokes
and drinks 8 to 10 martinis a day.

Candidate B - He was kicked out of office twice,
sleeps until noon, evening.

Candidate C - He is a decorated war hero. He's a
vegetarian, doesn't smoke, drinks an
occasional beer and never cheated on his wife.

Which of these candidates would be your choice?

Decide first, no peeking, then scroll down for the answer.

Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Candidate B is Winston Churchill.
Candidate C is Adolph Hitler.

And, by the way, the answer to the abortion question:
If you said yes, you just killed Beethoven.

Pretty interesting isn't it? Makes a person think before
judging someone. Never be afraid to try something new.


Amateurs built the ark.
Professionals built the Titanic.

Can you imagine working for a company that has a little
more than 500 employees and has the following statistics:

29 have been accused of spousal abuse
7 have been arrested for fraud
19 have been accused of writing bad checks
117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2
3 have done time for assault
71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit
14 have been arrested on drug-related charges
8 have been arrested for shoplifting
21 are currently defendants in lawsuits
84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year.

Can you guess which organization this is? Give up?

It's the 535 members of the United States Congress.
The same group of idiots that crank out hundreds of new
laws each year designed to keep the rest of us in line.

A Courtesy Update [29 Dec 2003|12:33am]
Today, grandma and grandpa came over with my baby cousin. Did stuff. Went to dinner. Went bowling with (let's see if I can get everyone...) CC, Alexis, Amy, Nick, Scott, Stee, Sal, Jysikka, Andrew, Rob, Katie, Galen (YES!!!), Jason, Danny, David Cohn...damn, I know I'm missing some people. Whatever. It was nice to hang out with some people I usually don't hang out with.

Tomorrow, hanging during the day, then tomorrow night is CC and David night, w00t! (Please tell me I didn't just say w00t.)

This is for TJ, because a while ago we were talking about this SNL skit. These aren't all the words, just what I could jot down while watching it. If someone finds all the words please tell me.

(Eddie Murhpy and Joe Piscopo)

You are black and I am white
Life's an Eskimo pie, let's take a bite
That was groovy think'n Lincoln
When you set them free.

I am dark and you are light
You are blind as a bat and I have sight
Side by side you're my amigo, negro
Let's not fight

Ebony and Ivory just living in perfect harmony
We're talk'n salt and pepper, Sammy and Dean,
Stevie and Me are peachy keen

You are white
You are black
And a-who cares

OK, now, question of the day. Please comment, I need your opinion. I told my grandparents I'd go to their house on New Year's like I have every year of my life, but they said if someone has a party I don't have to feel obligated to go. Erica and Andrea want me to do something with them, and I really want to, but I don't know...do you think I should stick to my grandparents, or go with Erica and Andrea?

I don't believe this. Lionel Tate is gonna get of with only 3 years of juvenile.

State of Florida: "Lionel Tate, you were babysitting a girl and killed her. But you were only 13, and of course 13 year olds don't have the mental capability to determine good from bad, so we're gonna let you off real easy this time."

Fuck Jeb Bush.

Man, I didn't have a problem with it. I didn't have a problem with any of it. I could have had some justified beef with you, but I didn't. But trying to make sure I don't know about it? Give me a break. Some best friend you are.

Brett's right, you really find out who your friends are when you're in a relationship. And right now, I think I've got 4 or 5.

Fuck. Fuck you all. Merry fuckin' Christmas.

You know you're bored when you're in Jason Silbiger's room at 2 in the morning playing with dominos. [21 Dec 2003|12:14pm]
Well this last unbelievably long stretch of time has been unbelievably uneventful.

Wednesday I went to Fusion practice. We ran through Elegant People. Since everyone except me and Porcelain knew their parts I felt kinda odd. So I went home and downloaded it and I've been working on it. The parade on Wednesday was alright, except for the part that involved waiting 2 hours before we actually marched. We all found out that Chris has perfect friggin' pitch, and by adding the friggin' in there, I mean it's dead on, in a split second.

I pretty much trudged through Thursday and Friday, waiting for Monday to come. And it still hasn't.

So of course Friday was the first night of Hanukkah, and my parents and I went to Brett's house. It was the first time I'd been over his house since his grandpa died. It was strange, every year we'd go over there and Norman (his grandpa) would ask why I didn't eat latkes, and we'd joke about my poor eating habits. As I've said before, if not for this man I may still be watching Sesame Street and drinking out of a bottle. So that was strange. And Brett and I just hang out for a little bit in his room.

While I'm on the subject of Hanukkah, I realized something on Friday. I really don't like getting presents for Hanukkah. I don't know why. Like, all my friends always ask "What did you get?!" and stuff like that, but I don't like getting presents on Hanukkah. But only on Hanukkah. Any other time, feel free to get me presents.

So after we left Brett's house my parents dropped me at my grandparent's house, where I slept.

Saturday morning, went to Shul for the first time in a while. Afterwards I went to my Aunt's house which was, again, filled with presents. I sat there while all of my cousins freaked out about presents. Whee. I saw my other aunt who I haven't seen since my Bar Mitzvah. She gave me a card and a little cash. Nice of her to finally remember she had a nephew. And now she's married to some suicidal manic depressive. I swear, my extended family is full of the biggest assholes.

So, I came back home and worked on my website a bit. Figured I'd have nothing to do but then I decided I'd make plans. So around 8, Brett and Tara picked me up and we went bowling, where we met up with Erica, Andrea, and Anthony. Bowling with 4 of my best friends in the whole world, hooray. It was pretty fun, though my "game" was significantly off. Bowled a 113 the first game, which sucks of course. Then Anthony and I called Dave, because he's down from Boston. He said he'd come to the alley. Brett and Tara left, and Erica didn't wanna wait around for Dave even though Anthony and I really wanted to see him, but that's alright cause I had a feeling he wouldn't come anyway. So I gave him a call and told him to forget it and we'll see him before he leaves for Berklee on January 14th.

Anthony, Erica, Andrea and I went to Albertson's to buy organic milk, and then went back to Erica's house, where we played a little Catch Phrase and drank some hot chocolate. Andrea and I screwed with some people's minds online. Then we all migrated to Jason's room, where we stayed until 3 in the morning. We were just sitting there, some of us laughing about nothing (Erica), and some of us laughing about some certain places in Poland (Jason) and some of us breaking other people's BRAND NEW WATCHES (ANTHONY!!!!!!!!!!)...yeah. So that was fun. So I left by thanking Randy for letting us all overstay our welcome. Dropped Erica and Andrea off at Andrea's house, and Anthony at his.

Then we all went online.

Yes, it was a weak attempt to continue the all-nighter that was interrupted when Randy and Dianne wanted to go to sleep. If my memory serves me correctly, Anthony bit the proverbial dust first, and I followed at around a quarter to 5. I woke up literally 2 minutes later to see that Andrea and Erica signed off. So I retired for the night. Here I am now.

Today I'm...doing nothing, so if you wanna do something holla back at me, y0. Haha. No, seriously, if you wanna do something leave a comment or call or IM me or something.

I'm not going to write an apology to the directors. Heck, I don't even know if Mr. Pilato's going to read this. (If you do, I'd appreciate a comment.)

I'm apologizing to the entire band program.


To whom it may concern:

I'm sorry.

I'm not sorry for my thoughts, but I'm sorry for the manner in which I chose to share them.

I realize now that an open forum was the absolute worst way to share my feelings. I should have spoken with you face-to-face. I have trouble talking to people face-to-face though. I mean, it's pretty evident - Mr. Pilato, I didn't even have hte guts to tell you the truth - that neither Galen nor I created the "I am Pilato" journal. It's something I realize I'm going to have to overcome.

I have nothing but the utmost respect for our directors, not only as directors and musical influences, but as people. Band is the hugest part of my life - bigger than baseball, bigger than Steely Dan. If you want proof, look at my class ring where I could have put a baseball or a Marlin. I put a trumpet.

When I look back at high school, I know band is what I'll remember. And I know that anyone else that's in band feels the same way. And I'd hate to think that comments that I made, or that anyone else made, for that matter, would ruin that for anyone.
