Feeling particularly bitter today. No, scratch that. Feeling EXTREMELY bitter today.
I'm starting to miss my old band again. And it sucks, because I feel really sad whenever I think about them. It was the most fun I'd ever had making music. I really put my heart into that project, and I tried on every occasion to show that I was dedicated, reliable, and professional. Obviously, none of that mattered in the end.
But you know what? Screw them. Or shall I say, they have already screwed themselves. Apparently they would rather work with the unreliable, uncommitted, half-assed wannabes. And no wonder. Everyone in that group except for Mike and John have no social skills whatsoever. They'll likely be making a sequel to a certain Steve Carrell movie, only it will be starring Chris now that he's thirty and still, well…completely inexperienced. As far as Jim is concerned, I can't tell whether he's so uptight because he has a skeleton in the closet, or whether he IS the skeleton in the closet.
And it looks like Dave is back; so much for his career as an air traffic controller, I guess. Too bad he never learned how to play the trumpet either. Hell, he barely belongs in a second-rate high school band.
Well, I guess that's why they have absolutely NO gigs on the calendar. Not even the Cambridge is booking them anymore; their last gig was two weeks ago. Their new lead singer probably has all the charisma of a day-old dog turd, the horn section probably sounded out of tune, and Stan probably showed up just in time for the second set – IF he showed up at all.
Today, I hope they're kicking themselves in the ass for letting me go over such petty bullshit. If they hired D. as a bassist and brought me back, they'd have good, reliable people to work with and gigs on the calendar – not to mention a decent website, press kits, and oh yeah, FRIENDS.
But they didn't, so screw them. LOSERS.
