hell's kitten


I dyed my hair yesterday!! I've been trying to set something up with Pablo forever now, and finally he was home and available. I asked him how to get to his house, since he lives in Polvadera, a little "village" (for lack of a better word) about 10 minutes north of Socorro. He told me he didnt know how to describe it, but he lived almost next to Juliana and to call her for directions. It was supposed to be a surprise to all my friends, so I called Lauren. She's known Pablo for like 10+ years, so I figured she'd know. She kinda knew how to get there, but told me she'd never actually been there. Anyway, she told me to get off at the Escondida exit, which ended up being *completely* wrong, and about 10minutes short of the Lemitar exit, which was the right one. Thankfully I brought my mom's cell phone just in case something like that happened.

Anyway, I eventually got to Pablo's house, and Pablo came outside to greet me (and so I could see which house was his) and...(here's the surprise) so did Chiara. They started discussing how and which parts of my hair they were going to dye and I kinda got scared cuz I thought Chiara hated me (she's *good* friends with Emmy and Amanda), and if she was going to have anything to do with helping dye my hair, she could seriously fuck it up on purpose. Jonathon, Nate and Ashley were there too. I was friends with Jonathon last year, but not Nate or Ashley, they're both a year younger than me.

Anyway, Chiara and Pablo both dyed my hair, both doing equal amounts of work, which kind surprised me...I woulda thought that Pablo would be the "leader" but nope.

At one point, Nate was fooling around with a lighter, pretending to light various things on fire (Chiaras boob, pablo's ass, etc...) and then like a minute after he left the room pablo said "do you smell burnt hair?" and we all started freaking out, (Chiara: "Am i on fire?!?") It was pretty funny...We never found anything on fire, but that kinda made it even more freakier.

So, yeah, I'm really happy with the way my streaks turned out. They're just on the surface of the hair (does that make sense?) and when i pull my hair back in a ponytail, i have just a stripe down my head.

It's freaky, though, now, cuz all kinds of people were nice to me today. willa said hi! not just wave, not just smile, but she actually said the word "hi"....that was weird, cuz she's always been the bitchiest of them all. Always ignores me, and blows me off every chance she gets. Then JR said a big enthusiastic hi to me in the hall, too. And Chiara smiled at me. Juliana, who was walking with me, jokingly said "hey, maybe i should dye my hair then people will be nice to me too!"

I dunno...maybe people are starting to realize that I havent actually done anything mean to anyone and they all hate me just because of emmy's brainwashing powers. Its been almost exactly a year since I started noticing Emmy being a bitch to me.

Wow..okay, there apparently is a band called X. I typed X into cdnow.com hoping it would give me "related search results" but it just sent me to this page about a band called X. They're a '80s cali "punk"/rock band. Here's what they had to say in the biography:

X were the quintessential L.A. punk rockers before they grew into a world-class rock & roll band and live band; however, enthusiasm for their unique, intelligent and humorous work never quite reached critical mass. Formed in 1977 after songwriter and bassist John Doe (b. Feb. 24, 1956) met (and later married) Exene Cervenka (b. Feb. 1, 1956) at a Venice poetry workshop, with rockabilly veteran Billy Zoom (b. Feb. 20, 194?) on guitar and D.J. Bonebrake (b. Dec. 8, 1955) on drums, the band garnered an immediate following. "Discovered" by ex-Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek, he took the band into the studio for the recording of Los Angeles in 1980. It was curious, at a time when punks were supposed to hate hippies, that X's merging with an ex-Door was not only tolerated, but earned them stature as California's preeminent punk band when the record earned across-the-board raves. 1981 saw the release of the similarly punked-up Wild Gift, while their 1982 album, Under the Big Black Sun, began what would be a long career in merging hard rock, country and folk into their fiery mix. The band successfully began to mix in their populist politics with an eye toward matters of the heart.As the band began to reach wider audiences, both Doe and Cervenka enjoyed outside careers in the arts -- he as an actor in films like Great Balls of Fire and Roadside Prophets, and she as a poet and spoken-word artist, collaborating with Lydia Lunch and Wanda Coleman. In 1983, the rootsy songs on More Fun In the New World lent themselves to acoustic performances which the band had taken to trying live. They took it one step further on their side project, the Knitters (with Dave Alvin) which yielded one Slash album, Poor Little Critter in the Road, in 1985. Ain't Love Grand was a harder rock album in 1986 and was followed by Zoom's departure. He was momentarily replaced by Alvin, but for recording purposes, the band recruited Tony Gilkyson (formerly of Lone Justice) for See How We Are, the band's most decidedly hard rock record in the catalog. Gilkyson stayed for the recording Live at the Whisky A Go-Go in 1988 before the band took some much-needed time off, although they never broke up. In the interim, Doe and Cervenka had since divorced, and the pair continued to work as solo artists, releasing Cervenka's Old Wives Tales (Rhino, 1989) and Running Sacred (1990) and Doe's Meet John Doe for Geffen in 1990. By 1993, the band got together for the recording of Hey Zeus!, a collection of new songs, but the response was underwhelming, and it was back to solo work. Doe released Kissingsohard for Rhino in 1995. Exene also released Surface to Air Serpents for the 2.13.61 label, as well as a reading of the Unabomber Manifesto, after changing her name to Cervenkova. During their frequent hiatuses, X would occasionally appear in Los Angeles and San Francisco and during one stay, recorded a live album in San Francisco in 1995, Unclogged, and self-released it. Cervenkova's latest project is Auntie Christ with Bonebrake and Matt Freeman of Rancid. Gilkyson also works as a solo artist. X also appeared in three films: Penelope Spheeris' punk documentary The Decline of Western Civilization, Urgh! A Music War, and a documentary of their lives and times, The Unheard Music. Beginning in 1998, founding member Billy Zoom returned to the fold for a series of on again/off again shows and limited touring.~ Denise Sullivan, All Music Guide
