"Boy, these conservatives are really something, aren’t they? They’re all in favor of the unborn. They will do anything for the unborn. But once you’re born, you’re on your own. Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that, they don’t want to know about you. They don’t want to hear from you. No nothing. No neonatal care, no day care, no head start, no school lunch, no food stamps, no welfare, no nothing. If you’re preborn, you’re fine; if you’re preschool, you’re fucked." ~ George Carlin
It’s relatively late here and I was just replaying a memory and felt the need to share it.
About a month ago I won a competition to play my guitar onstage with my all time favourite band Thirty Seconds To Mars during their song City of Angels.
I met up with Tomo about an hour before the show and we ran through the song a few times, spoke about animal rights and I very secretly giggled at Jared fixing his hair in the mirror behind us. I instantly felt like Tomo and I had just become friends. He treated me like a king the entire night.
Later, I played the song in front of 8000 people and had the time of my life. I stepped off stage, put my guitar in it’s case and stood side of stage and looked out at the crowd. I began to tear up pretty badly. I had never ever been so happy in my entire life. My number one dream is to play my guitar on a stage like that and not only did I accomplish that, I did it with my all time favourite band.
During the acoustic part of the show, Tomo came over to me; ‘Dude you killed it!’. I tried to say thank you but I started to bawl my eyes out. You know when your bottom lip quivers and you do the shallow, sharp inhales because that’s how hard you’re crying? That was me. I somehow managed to spit out something along the lines of ‘Thank you, that meant so much to me, it was so much fun, thank you’
'Serious man? Come here!' Tomo said, pulling me into a hug. A moment passed and I began to let go but he hugged tighter and said 'don't worry bro, I wont let you go man, I got you! I got you!'
And I just thought that was so nice and wanted to share with the Echelon; Tomo’s incredible heart.
Does anyone else wish they could be friends with their favorite band member? I don’t mean friends as in you follow each other on social media sites and you let everyone know because you just wanna say you know them, I mean you really just wish you could talk to them and laugh with them and you would keep down about it because you are friends and it’s not about the fame or the fact that they’re attractive as hell, you just genuinely wish you had their company.

tell yourself you’re hot. tell yourself you’re amazing. tell yourself you’re untouchably, radiantly attractive. do it every day, even if it feels like you’re lying to yourself. insist to the mirror that you’re the cutest thing its ever reflected. if you do it enough eventually it wont feel like lying anymore, it’ll be automatic, and you’ll recognize yourself as the incredible babe you really are.
