On Saturday we went to The Wick to see AnathematizeD, a thrash/death metal band. While it was a bit weird seeing a death metal band in the middle of the afternoon, it was awesome, and made me want to immediately go learn to play guitar, drop out of school, and start a band.
Later that day, I updated my profile picture on Facebook:
I just took a quick one of myself to replace the stupid old pic that was there before. For some reason, though, people started to comment on it. They said I look scary, disgruntled, intimidating, and possibly attractive to hybristophiliacs. But most importantly, one person said I look the hard-ass frontman of a band. Was this some sort of sign?
Later that day, we went to Vietnam for dinner. Vietnam is a restaurant way east on the sketchy part of Dundas, with lots of delicious Vietnamese food, including pho (which is something I did not try, but need to someday, because all I hear people talk about lately is pho). The decor is also beautiful, with Pepto Bismol coloured walls and a disco light machine thing left over from a previous occupant of that building. Seriously though, the food was awesome. As we were leaving – and “we” is four dudes about my age – the owner of Vietnam excitedly asked if we were grabbing some dinner on the way to a show. He had just assumed that we were a rock band.
Another sign! It’s decided, then. Screw all this school stuff; I’m picking up a non-plastic guitar and touring the world playing beautiful death metal for the rest of my life. Goodbye.
