A Blog About My 2nd Cousins

Happy Labor Day Weekend!

For the weekend, my cousin and his kids came by to say hi and hangout. It was fun and a bit mind-boggling. Simply because kids are interesting creatures. I love kids, but I’ve been told that it looks like I hate kids. Rude. Well either way I miss them and here’s how they return my love:

“Should I eat the pancakes?”

“Yes! They are poisonous!”

“I feel loved.”

But then, this happened:

“And don’t forget that I have 15 girlfriends!”

And the number just keeps going up and up, but then down. How strange. And his older brother only has one, but he gives her dead birds as a gift. That boy is a catch. I would love to sit and talk with a little kid or one of them. They work in such strange ways. I wish I could remember what it was like being a kid. Keeping my all of my thoughts in a journal.

Then I thought, why is it okay for boys to have girlfriends at a young age, but not girls?

No one knew the answer and I don’t want to ask my dad. I suppose some things are better with no answers.

The Rockwell and Jack Barakat

News Article #3

Jack Barakat, guitarist of All Time Low(ATL), is now in the bar business? He hasn’t left the band and All Time Low is still going strong, but Jack just picked up a part-time job. It doesn’t make much sense for a guitarist of a pop-punk band to join the bar business. Their fans know that ATL are no strangers to a good party. So for Jack to join the bar-scene is no surprise.

According to Brittany Moseley, “Barakat recently became the co-owner of the Rockwell, located in Baltimore’s historic Fell’s Point neighborhood. Along with co-owner Bryan Burkert, the two are offering something new to the area: a purely rock ’n’ roll bar.”

Most clubs play a lot of hip-hop, pop, and mainstream music that you’ll normally hear on the radio. Some people don’t leave their genre of music, so to have a purely rock bar would be the ideal place to go for other rock bands coming to play at Baltimore. Having pure rock clubs all around the states would be a great place for those who want to find people in their own music group. As Barakat states: “It could be one of those things that sounds like a good idea on paper and ends up being a shit show, but I think it’s gonna be pretty fun.”

It’s just one of those things that’s worth a shot and if it works, it works. If it doesn’t, well no one can say that he didn’t try.
