Budapest, Hungary - part 14

Slowly getting through my proof sheets...
"Love built on beauty, soon as beauty, dies." –John Donne
Kevin converses in his engaging manner.
I don't like this photo.
I do like this one. Smoking is very big in Budapest, and many people rock those really skinny ones. If you ever wonder who smokes those, they do in Budapest.
This guy has his eyes closed, messing up my shot.
Phil, the Big Kahuna over at the SMAK in Gent, came to Budapest.
Thomas enjoys getting his work done.

Posted February 15th, 2011 by The wretched thing that wants desperately to be away from here
i really liked this one girl a few years back.
damn, she was pretty! gorgeous eyes, womanly gorgeous, model-esqe body, etc.

surprisingly, turns out she liked me too, so we went out to see "what's up" and all that dating crummy kind of stuff.

like, yea she was cool and we agreed on some shit and talked a lot and all that..and all that made me like her more.

but i think her comeliness blinded my views on her.
yep, i was being more superficial and shallow rather than being honest to myself and ask "why do i like her besides her fucking beauty and the fact she's cool?"

truth is, i painfully discovered she was ugly.
she lied. she wasn't honest. she was immature. she liked boys.
and to worsen things, she was narcissistic and vain.

although as a result i was somehow disappointed and hurt, i knew all this wasn't love at all.

so i stopped seeing her after some silly drama that made her look not so good on her behalf.

lesson learned!

funny thing is, a year or so later we bumped into each other at a show and asked if "i had some time to talk and straight things up in private"

fresh, under the influence of copious amounts of adult beverages, agreed upon such request.
and we talked.
not really. SHE talked.

all i heard were words like
"im sorry..." "i regret..." "i wish i..." "remember when..." and then the final, hilarious one "i been in love with you all this time.."

dude, i LAUGHED when she said the latter.
i answered between my laughs at this sinful lie
"no you don't, don't say that. thats wrong! what are you trying to get from this? ew! just say something that is true" or some drunk gibberish like that

i didnt forgave her because there was nothing to forgive.
she's just an immature little girl, and like all immature little girls, she does immature little girl things.

i wish her the best, i lived some cool times with her.

oh yea, the first photo's quote somehow reminded me of this anecdote.

big kahuna burger!

So...did you hit it?
Hey man, if you're getting ladies to fall in love with you.That's cool.

I'm procrastinating homework due tomorrow to commentate here. That's how much I looove commenting. Fuck math,bee-otch.

I like the photo of the guy smoking the Thin cigarette. That guy could be 20 years old again and be a hip young person. notice I didn't use the word hipster,because everybody is a hipster these days. No more emo. or maybe Emo Hipster. I dunno, I'm being dumb. You poser.
But that photo is good.

Phil of SMAK affiliation looks like Russel Brand. Who isn't funny.

That guy that closed his eyes looks like he's cringing or thinking..hey man. the photo wasn't ruined. I guess you could just ruin it by drawing a fart cloud coming out of his ass.

That guy sitting on that wooden bench curb thing isn't weird enough.

I don't have much to say for the first two. I guess put a cigarette in Kevin's hand and then he'll be Louder than Bombs.

You can give the last photo to Fallen to become an all over print t-shirt. If they're still into making that kind of gear.
Billy's pro shoes need a little mustache on the tongue. Vegan mustache.

while my class works on their vulcanoproject I´m enjoying Ed´s art. Teaching can be pretty good sometimes.

It´s funny, when you´re in a relationship,
stuff like that is so far away, I can´t even remember being single.
I think it was 1998 or 97.Serious.What a long time ago....

That "Super Grupes del amor" record is bought.
That´s my stuff to start the day with.
Not getting the language makes it even more funny,
like when you guys listen to Rammstein, I guess;)

Some german shit from a band called trio,
wich was one of the best new wave/no wave/punk bands
we had in germany.Check also the other vid´s.
They were great.

Broken hearts for you and me.

and this one:

In the beginning he says the song is about what to do the last two days before "dallas" comes on the would be funnier if you get the artsy
stuff he talks about in german, but you should get their humor anyways.

Man, posts come to fast for me right now! Again two new posts, excellent! That smoking guy with the glasses somehow reminds me of Erich Honecker, dead and gone he and his country...
