HEY FRIENDS LIST! @ 07:53 pm

So, have like all y'all abandoned livejournal? It seems like hardly anybody writes around here anymore!! I've been pretty bad also, most of my stuff is ending up over on my myspace now since I know way more people on there than I do on here. Is everyone else in the same boat? It seems like the only posts I see anymore are from the communities I'm a part of.

What's the story homies?!?!?!

Woot for Gavin!! @ 12:04 am

Current Music: Sweeney Todd - Epilogue

A little shill for a great artist and an all around wonderful dude.

Gavin Creel's debut album dropped yesterday! He's a talented force to be reckoned with.

Check him out and pick up his album by visiting him at gavincreel.com. He's also moving his blog over there from myspace, so you can catch his exciting adventures as he finds his way out in L.A. (he just picked up and moved out there from NYC a few weeks ago. How I envy him!)

My own place to shill:
