3 things at once.

So I'm gonna cram a couple days in a row into this one. Las Vegas was awesome. I left up a few hundred bucks, and had a pretty good show day. Twan even came out, and we hung out, and I got to see his fiancee' Tammy, also. It was cool, cause I hadn't seen her in a while. We had a fun night out, and just hung out and were dudes.
The next day we were in SLC. SLC was a good show, and that was about it. We pretty much played and got the fuck out of there. I started feeling kinda sick from the lack of sleep I've been getting lately. After the show, I just kind of sat around and texted for a while. Then drove to Denver.
Denver ruled. The show was cool, and I got to hang out with my friend Dylan. There was a group of drunk dudes that kept bothering the shit out of me and Nelty all night. At one point all the merch people were about to beat the shit out of him, then he got thrown out of the show. After he cried to security for a good half hour they let him back in, only to get thrown out again for drinking. King of shit mountain, this guy. I also ate an awesome sandwich here, and we bowled after the show. We also made a late night Denny's run with the Cancer Bats dudes, our new favorite bros. I bowled my best game ever, too. 153!!! Then i sat up and had an awesome conversation with V till 4 in the morning. Stoked.
Today I'm im Omaha, NE. Found out some weird news today, that was kind of a bummer. We all had a good day, for the most part. We got into town, got the hotel, and showered. It was nice to feel human 2 days in a row. We had a fun group meal at PF Chang's, then i went to the mall w/ Steve and got some new jeans. Total winner. I went to the total jock/bro bar at the hotel w/ Tucker for a while, had a good bro chat, and lurked some real winners. Now I'm going to bed. Peace young nigga! Milwaukee tomorrow.

Home of the $110 hoodie!

Tucson, AZ. Gorgeous fucking day, for sure. I bummed around after load in and went w/ Nelty to go get food. We ate at a diner i had been to on The last Oranges tour, next to the Vaudeville, it's still good. I was into it.
The show was full of fucking winners. Out of touch dads, and nerdy kids. However the winner of "Asshole of the night award" was the dude who was an asshole to everyone, pissed off me and Nelty. Total jerk. He winds up buying a Thursday hoodie, and complaining that it was white. So I told him I'd make it not white, and he was into it. He gave me 60 bucks to go outside and spray paint it, so it looked like it had dark clouds on it. He then kicked me an extra 10 bucks, and commissioned me to do a painting for him. As we all know I'm one hell of an artist. It was pretty classic. Fuck that dude.
After the show, a bunch of my boxes ate shit during load out. So, that was fun. I stayed up hanging with Nelty and chatting with Veronica for awhile, as my bunk got more and more cold. I finally went to bed at 4 am. It was a pretty eventful day.
Tomorrow...Me and Tucker do a video blog. Get stoked.

Ahh, San Diego.

I fucking love this city. For real, it is one of my favorite places to go, while on tour. The weather rules, and there's good places to eat. Really the only 2 things i need. I got to hang out with my bro John again today. He brought me a murder city devils shirt. I was fucking pumped. He also took me to Pokey's, a sick mexican place. I got a fish taco and it was amazing. I also saw something that took me back in time a little bit. There were some cholo dudes there, working in the place. The smiths came on, and they started clearing all the tables singing "This Charming Man". It fucking ruled. After that we walked around, hung with Geoff for a bit, and got coffee.
The show was cool. There were tons of wicked young(14-16years old)girls doing TONS of blow in the bathroom. They were running laps, it seemed like.
Nothing else exciting really happened here, other than that. We hung out on the bus afterwards and watched the new Rob Dyrdek show, and drank beers, then i went to bed early. I'm so exciting. I got sleep though, which was awesome. Now we're in Tucson, and i just ate a rad omelette. Doors are in ten minutes, so i'm gonna go burn one and get to work. I'll be doing a photo post soon, mostly of food, and stupid people. Get stoked.
Later dudes!

Check me out.

We're in Bakersfield today, our first day off. Let me tell you about this place. it's a fuckin beauty. There is a serious homeless meth head vibe going on in this place. I also have seen a grip and a half of sketchy hispanic dudes with face tattoos, livin la vida loca, for sure. I can imagine they would not be stoked on my new tattoo at all. I am glad i never got the dots or a tear drop next to my eyes. I would probably not be writing this right now if i were.
Today was the first day without rain, and also the first day I've showered on this tour. I've been a dirty dog. I also shaved off my 4 day dirt beard into a shitty Cop moustache.
We didnt do anything today, but last night we hung out w/ the Saves The Day guys. We also proceeded to get shitty drunk. I figured since the show was bullshit, i was gonna start drinking at 2 pm. In the following 12 hours, i managed to drink an 18 pack of bud light, and a bunch of jameson and jack daniels. I drank Bring Me The Horizon's merch dude under the table, literally. He was pissing in a bottle at the table, and wound up finishing the night collapsed into one of his merch bins. I felt pretty good about it. I also forced myself to keep drinking til 2 am, so i could have gone a full 12 hours. I sat in the front lounge w/ tucker, andrew, the rev, and nelty. 2 beers in one hand, and then a bottle of jack daniels. I hit it hard. I woke up fine today, surprisingly.
I think i'm gonna go grab some pizza with nelty and andrew in a little bit. Then restocking and watching a rom com. maybe something cool will happen, cause Tucker wants me to get weird with him.

Do you know the way to San Jose?

I'm sitting in San Jose, somewhere. Last night was pretty cool, it was a bit of a laundry list of friends who came to hang out. Lots of old school homies were there. The show kind of sucked dick attendance wise. Honestly, I'll hook up a better version on yesterday, later. I am fucking hungover, fuck.

Stuck in a ditch, that ain't new.

Well after a relatively unexciting day of paranoid flying, and getting fucking twisted with businessmen on the plane out to LA, i made it here. I'm currently sitting on the bus after an early morning and previous night of drinking. I probably drank about 13 hours yesterday. Real pro maneuvers. Just did some normal first day of tour stuff, hot tub party, and being a general asshole. i convinced a group of 10 euros that i was addicted to crystal meth. i'm sure i told them a bunch of other shit, but i was too hammered to remember. I wish it weren't so cold here, it's probably warmer in Baltimore right now. Running around in underwear at 4 am soaking wet is my new shit. I'm sure the guy that ran the front desk sure didnt expect 15 dudes and chicks running around half naked in the wee hours of the morning.
This morning we got up at the crack of dawn and the dudes did a performance for Fuel tv. After fighting traffic back to our hotel, we're all relaxing, one time. I'm going out with my cousin, Rob, yeah, the one who's wedding I missed. Then I'm fucking sleeping. Tomorrow is going to be a long day, for sure.
Pictures coming soon, promise!

The world is an oyster...

I made it. After a long 2 months at home, i am leaving tomorrow. I couldn't be happier, or more excited, to be honest. I have the next 2 days off in LA before tour starts, and have a little bit of work to do, but really it isn't too bad.
I have about a million things to do today, before i go in to work tonight.
Flying to LA in the afternoon tomm., then the Epitaph BBQ tomm night. I'm sure to get some interesting photos there, for sure. I'm also stoked to see my friend Sara, who I haven't seen in like 8 years. I get to hang with my buddy Jon, too.
Hopefully the posts on here get kicked up a notch.
I have a feeling they will.
Til tomorrow...

I feel out of sorts, sick, and fucking bummed out.
I am really ready to get the fuck out of here.
Absolutely nothing about being in Baltimore is making me feel anything less.
10 more days.
