No, not me, stupid.
The infamous Jonny Craig.
As much as I hate posting video after video, I think it was more than neccesary in this case.
I was going through my drafts yesterday & I found an old draft about Jonny Craig that I ended up not posting because I was just too...over his bullshit fucking antics to care.
Every post I write about Jonny Craig, I say the same thing: I don't care about his self-serving personality & all the terrible things he does in his life. The only thing I care about is this man's voice.
Anyone who listens to Jonny Craig, Emarosa or Dance Gavin Dance knows about his huge "Mac Book Scam" that happened earlier this year & ended with Jonny getting shipped off to rehab & ultimately kicked out of Emarosa.
I don't know what this dude's problem is.
Better yet, I don't know what my problem is.
I should probably feel horribly disrespected by the same musician I tell everyone I adore.
I only listened to Emarosa after Jonny joined the band & now that he's gone, I can't say I still have any interest toward them.
I stopped listening to Dance Gavin Dance after they kicked Jonny out & started listening again now that they've rehired him.
I stayed up & downloaded his solo album at midnight the day it came out...then I went out the next week & bought the physical copy.
I've been the best supporter I could possibly be to this man & it's like all he does is spit in my face.
Jonny keeps claiming to be clean since he got out of rehab in February & I hope it's true.
I can't explain how excited I am about this acoustic EP.
It's really all I've ever wanted from him.
This video has restored my faith in Jonny & his amazing gift.
His voice means more to me than anyone could ever imagine.
I just want him to be good for once...

This video has become my life in the last 24 hours.
Rafael Casal (the handsome fool telling the stories) is one of my favorite poets/spoken word artists of all time & these stories are exactly why I need to move downstate to The City.
I've been really busy these past few days.
My nephews came in on Monday & just left on Friday (I think...).
Yeah, still nowhere near ready to be a parent.
I have to go to my college tomorrow & ask them what the fuck it is that they've been asking me for, for the past month.
They keep sending me notifications, telling me to send them the info they requested but they never requested anything & the letters don't say what it is that they want.
I wish I had more to talk about but I really don't.
I'm developing a strange crush on someone I REALLY shouldn't have a crush on, but that's a whole nother baseball game & I'm in no position to pitch.
Since my nephews have been here & they get up at, like, 4 o'clock in the morning, I've been going to bed around 10 & waking up around 8...which is crazy shit for me.
Still watching Immortal Technique interviews like they're going out of style.
Currently reading 4 books at once because I couldn't commit to just one, for some reason.
Currently waiting for 10 o'clock so I can pass the fuck out.
I'm gonna work on some drafts so maybe next time, I might actually have something interesting to talk about.
