We place trust in ourselves because at the end of the day, that’s the person you need to trust the most. I mean, of course you can turn to your friends and family during periods of struggle. But, if you don’t truly believe in yourself and the fact that you can overcome any hurdle life throws your way, then you’ll never really overcome anything. Everyone has the strength within themselves; it’s just a matter of how hard you have to look to find it.

This is a Mucha-inspired siren by David Hale at LoveHawk Studios in Athens, GA.  I got this tattoo to remind me to be wary of temptations in life.  So far it hasn’t helped…. :P

Here’s a better set of my back. Hopefully only 2 sessions left to go. It’s being done by Luke Blegen @ Golden Spiral Studios in GSO, NC.

RIP STEPASIDE

so yesterday was our final show in line with Prettig’s 5th Anniversary making it all so much better as they have been hooking us up with shows for bands like Carpathian, Give Blood etc.
a good long 2 years have went by with us being silent and considering our options and they all lead us to finally giving us our last bow on stage together.
through the band, i finally found my place in this scene and it gave me a sense of belonging. through it, i realise that this is where i trully belong. the sing-alongs, the circle pits, the mosh, the beat downs and the guys who were there along with it. with this band, i learnt the beauty of friendship and the art of making music for the underground. the pleasure of making friends abroad and locally.
sure i am gonna miss the aidil, the rudy, the ian and the remee cause no one can ever replace them truthfully but we all have to start moving forward. ian and aidil have already begun their journey with a new band called Potraits, which i am sure checking out, Rudy is pursuing his dream in the pop punk rock scene and remee is playing for various bands. and i wish them all the best in their future.
that boils down to me. ns is definitely a dream killer but i wont care less and am starting out my own band called Turning Tides together with Pai from Straight Forward, Mario from then Draw the Line and Sempoi. Looking for another guitarist to complete the line up. Can’t wait for our next recording and shows. Gonna make this a blast with our influence basically just trashing our anger on any regime. till then i will always stay true to my scene and will continue to contribute to it as much as i can.

broken promises

broken promises
where’s the entitlement that we deserve.
talk about building a future
but i see no interest in our people
the ones who call this our home
the ones who work for a brighter hope
now what do we get in the end?
well, this is all fucked up.
we are all fucked.
you talk about change,
but things have always been the same
the homeless stay homeless
i don’t wanna be a part of this anymore
a nation smeared in it’s leader’s hands.

Tomorrow isn’t coming, that day won’t be here. What you do to pass your time will ruin your next years. I can’t be your savior; I won’t be your guardian angel. And when’s the right time for you to slap your own hand. Put it down and put it away. Enough’s enough, you’ve had that today. Nature will take its course and you will waste away. You are your biggest enemy, the biggest harm to yourself. Today’s the day. Do something impossible. We are the ones that we’ve been waiting for.
