Hey everyone! I feel like I have been so inactive online! Only thing that seems to have stayed consistant has been YouTube and I will explain that all later on. I have recently become extremely busy, as I now have a paying job, on top of all I do with Immortal Music and Remedy X.
Because of that, I feel I should do another update blog. I did one recently, but I'm doing it again. Maybe I don't need to, but whatever. I feel like it, so I am. Someone will read it, I hope. Anyways, I now work in a retail store that actually encourages piercings, tattoos and crazy colored hair. I've been working there about a month, and over all I am not going to name the store's name. If you figure it out, that's cool. If I accidentally say it, that's fine too. I am allowed to talk about it, just am trying not to for a while. Honestly, I have no reason for that, but I'm doing it anyways. Things are going great there, I'm actually getting more hours than I was told I was going to get -which is wonderful! Tiring, yes, but so worth it. Its helping feed this career!
Speaking of, I have three interviews this month, and several pending. On August 17, I will be interviewing Ballyhoo! in Sarasota, FL. I'll be doing the interview just before the doors open for the show and frankly, I'm quite excited! I'm not a huge fan of Ballyhoo! But they have a certain charm to them that I can't help but appreciate. This is my second interview with them, but first in person!
On August 30, I will be attending Uproar Festival 2014. This is my second time going, and frankly, I am very excited. I will be getting my second interview with Within Reason, and I am greatly hoping that they remember me from Uproar 2012. I interviewed their singer, Chris Dow and their bassist David Koonce, and had a wonderful time, so I am hoping it happens again! I think I said that in a previous update blog, but the thought is still there, so it is being mentioned again! And maybe you didn't read the other one so its news to you anyways! I'm starting to ramble, I will stop with that and move on.
I have not been given a time for that interview, but I'm thinking it'll be one of those things that happen when there is time. Now for the second interview I have for the day, is one I have greatly anticipated since I started doing all of this. At six pm I will be interviewing Escape The Fate. I will have to miss someone's set, though I am currently not sure who's set it will be but I am really looking forward to this one.
I also just, as I was typing this blog up sent out requests for interviews with Mayday Parade, Tonight Alive, Major League, and Pvris. I have already heard back about Mayday Parade, and Pvris. Sadly, Mayday Parade said no for this time around, but thanked me for my constant support! That was because I mentioned that I have interviewed them once before, but it was back in 2011. So, hey, there's always next time! Pvris on the other hand, said they're putting me in their 'running doc', which I believe means I have the interview. It will be filmed, and I told the lady that emailed me back that I try to keep my interviews under twenty minutes, so it should be a normal interview for me. I have been told in the past to keep some interviews under five minutes, but they always tell me that after I do the interview, and frankly, if anyone watches my YouTube channel -They would certainly know that I am incapable of making a short video about 95% of the time. Its rare when it works out.
I was also asked if I could email ATTILA's press person after Warped tour concluded to do an interview over email. So, that is something I need to do. Meanwhile, if you have questions, please feel free to submit some.
I am also waiting for Bayside and Adelitas' Way to answer me back with answers to questions they were already sent. Both were sent at the end of June, and due to hectic schedules or something, I have not gotten my answers back! Hopefully, they find the time to answer me back soon, because I for one am very excited to hear what they had to say. Especially for Adelitas Way because I mostly asked about their new album, Stuck, and am just geniunely curious as a fan of the music!
Basically, to recap all that part- If you have questions for Ballyhoo!, Within Reason, Escape The Fate, Pvris, or ATTILA, please feel free to send them to me. I may also need questions for Major League, Tonight Alive, but those are not guarenteed yet.
I will be going to see Ballyhoo! on August 17, Uproar 2014 on August 30, The Pretty Reckless And Adelitas Way on September 21, AND Mayday Parade with Tonight Alive, Major League And Pvris on November 14. There'll be interviews up soon with Adelitas Way and Bayside, a possible one with ATTILA, and I definitely have ones with Escape The Fate, Ballyhoo! And Pvris. Questions are welcome for all, just please message them to me on the Facebook page and make sure you tell me if you want your name involved or not, and which band you are asking the question for.
Now onto other matters. I'm almost done, I promise. As I said, previously, I am working again, and its keeping me pretty busy. They have me working a lot, and I am totally not complaining because I actually really like the job, my co-workers and most of the people that come into the store. BUT, because of that I am online less, and there for not getting to chat with you guys, or post blogs and articles as much. I promise though, I have not forgotten about you! I'm actually thinking sometime before Christmas, I'm going to get the t-shirts made that I've talked about for over a year. I have already talked to some people, and someone said they can make the shirts for me. So, I am going to make a few to start with in the next few months, and might start just by selling them locally, but I think when I get them going I will do a giveaway or something so someone out there can get one. I don't know if that's what I'll do yet, but I want someone to have one!
With my new job, for some reason has actually come a sudden social life. Which is really nice, actually, but again detracts from you guys. I'm learning the balancing act here, which is something everyone needs to do in their life! I will get the hang of it soon, I promise. I have felt so bad that I haven't been able to stay totally regular with you guys with my posts and what not but please know I still love you guys and am not giving up. Life is just getting really busy at the moment, so things are changing a bit, but its still all good! As you can see by this whole post, there's a lot going on with Immortal Music, as well as just my life in general! I am still going to write as much as I can, and obviously you'll have a lot of interviews to check out soon. I'm still going to be posting videos on the same schedule I have been, which is Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday and sometimes vlogs on Saturdays. That is not changing, though the thought has crossed my mind to cut out a day here and there, but I haven't fully decided yet if I'm going to do it. For the most part, YouTube is not a big deal. Its just for fun, and I film three to four videos at a time, so its pretty easy to get it all worked out. I film for a couple hours, edit here and there when I have time, and then upload. I often actually leave the videos uploading while I go and do other things, so its pretty easy to manage.
Only thing left to cover is Remedy X. They're still doing good. Now that Warped tour is over, they don't need nearly as much of my attention as they used to. They have two shows this weekend, and we have a couple others scheduled for the next month or so. I am working on getting them more shows, but so far its not with anyone in particular. If you want to keep up with them, checking out their Facebook would be the best idea. We will hopefully have a website up for them soon, but I told Josh (Remedy's lead singer.) that I would play around with designs and stuff and maybe come up with something basic for them, and I haven't quite had the time to do that. We'll see what happens there. Oh! They were on a podcast last month and it was just uploaded! I'm excited about that, because I was there and its kind of cool to hear it all done and edited, and just remember it all. I'm in it too, actually! If you want to check that out, its The Audiohenchmen and I bet you guys will really like it. It was a really good time and I'm very glad I was able to be apart of it.
I think that about covers all that's been going on, but I kind of feel like throwing in there what I've been listening to lately. I've found myself listening to a lot of All Time Low, 5 Seconds Of Summer, The Used (Particularly their song "Cry" off of Imaginary Enemy), Adelitas Way and Fall Out Boy. I'm actually loving the new Adelitas Way album, and older Fall Out Boy. Like, "Sugar, We're Going Down" has recently been played a lot for me.
Now I think I'm done. I ramble, don't I?
Sorry...hopefully you don't mind! Actually, I bet you don't...if you made it to the end of this, you probably like this sort of thing. Thank you for reading, I love you and really hope you are well. If you are not, please know that it always gets better and if you ever need someone to talk to, please don't hesitate to message the page, or talk to anyone.

I love you, don't forget that, and I will talk to you soon! Let me know what you've been up to and listening to, please!
