It’s been a long time since I wrote on this blog. (Not since September of 2013.)
I haven’t been up to much, scene-wise.
I haven’t been going to shows, I haven’t been writing publicly, (electronically or
on paper), and I just generally haven’t been what you would call ‘around ‘in Hamilton.
Well, it’s time for my confession about why that is. I’ve made excuses before, but I want to finally tell the truth.
I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Depression, and Social Anxiety Disorder.
This is not an excuse to friends who wanted me at their show. I’m not trying to get pity.
I’m just tired of lying and excuses. Not to mention hiding what has affected me for so long.
(I have had these conditions since I was 17, but in September of last year, it got to the worst point.)
I’ve put a lot into trying to get better. Everything isn’t as good as it once was, but I’m working on it.
I just want any of the people I know who might read this to know that I appreciate and miss them.
Now, for the good news. I’m starting another blog here on wordpress. It will encompass what’s going on with me, some music-related content, and essays I’ve been writing.
The link is:
Thanks for reading, and thanks for all the support you gave this blog.

Near Hamilton, there exists a municipality. It’s name is Stoney Creek, and it’s famous for being a major defense site of the war of 1812.
And while we from Hamilton know that musicians, particularly those of the Punk ilk can come from Stoney Creek, we were mystified to hear that a Punk show could happen there.
(Stoney Creek Punk bands are playing their hometown? And even bringing in bands from other cities? What witchcraft is this?!)
But it was announced some weeks ago, and it’s happening tomorrow.
Organized by Web Society’s guitarist and lead vocalist Brandon Kummer, Stoney Creek will have a Punk show. And musicians from the municipality will play there. (The members of Web Society, NOT, and some of Adelleda are all from the area.)
The show will be taking place at Stoney Creek United Church. (1 King Street West, Stoney Creek.)
$5 will get you in, and the first band goes on at 7:30pm.
Band times are as such:
Web Society: 7:30pm
Rebel Arms: 8:15pm
I will be going to gawk at the Creekers, I mean document like a professional. And I suggest everyone that can get out do it. It’s rare to see actual Punk Rock in a church. But it’s more rare to see Stoney Creek residents play their hometown.
