  Don't post much anymore, but I'm updating because I feel like it.
PURE show on the 13th was great. Awesome suspension. I wrote a big thing about it about a week ago but when I hit post lj was in read only mode and I didn't copy it. I'm too lazy to rewrite it.
Basically, it was our first headlining show. We did 4 sets throughout the night. First was a bed 'o nails standing and laying, eye lifts, play piercings, hot wax, Jen putting candles out on herself, and a blood letting.
Set 2 was chest pulls, letting the audience pull on Angel and Pauls hooks.
Set 3 was Dale suspended arc angel and playing music.
Set 4 was my lotus and neat 6 foot spears going through 2 people.
Fun show, awesome music, great bands, fun fun fun.

I'm going back to school in the spring. I'm going to take Geography and math. I'm also doing corrospondance high school which starts as soon as my books arrive.
I'm excited for school again. I miss it.

HOOKS HOOKS AND MORE HOOKS!   
12:45am 15/11/2004
 
mood: weird
Last night went well.
Started out piercing with hypos. Then I threw a cheek spear on Noel. I feel really bad because it was so slow. It was really hard though. I wasn't strong enough.
After that we learned to throw hooks. Everyone that hadn't thrown hooks before threw 2 hooks. Then we had a nice 5 person elbow pull. I did well on the hooks. One of the hooks I threw ripped though. I felt really bad, but Daif said "it happens". It wasn't my fault, they were yanking on them hard and it's soft tissue.
But we also learned to set up trays, de hook people, etc.
It was fun.
Work, but fun.
I had to go first on everything because I was the most nervous. Which was scarey. But I now love hooking people. I get to do it again for 3rd saturday next week.
I'm not too fond of cheek spears though, too hard.

But I don't have to throw a cheek spear on stage until new years because we switched our show we had planned for this month to then.
We're going to be performing at the Seahawks exibition center and we're getting paid $500!
Exciting!

  I'm so nervous to throw spears, cheek spears sound hard to throw, but everyone says they're easy. I guess I can do it, but I'm really nervous about doing it on stage. i dunno. I should really do it so we have guys and girls on stage. Also, the person that would replace me is matt, and he needs a show off stage.
rrrrrr...
i'm nervous.

  I was such a housewife yesterday. All I did was cook and clean and do laundry and did a little homework. I even had a turkey in the oven when Phill got home from work.
Today I'm going to put the laundry away that I did yesterday, fold and put away the stuff in the dryer, clean the kitchen, and do more homework.

I should start working next week. Char said there are a lot of hours to give out and to call her Thursday. So hopefully I can get in next week, if not, i'll start the day after Thanksgiving.

mood: antsy
Our shows were amazing.
I had so much fun on that spinning beam. I guess Jen and I inspired a lot of the girls at the show. My rockstar moment. There was a little mishap, but it was taken care of. It was the most brutal thing, but we got through it.
Our show with The Bad Things rocked too. It was very theatrical. I like having live music. That show was awesome, it was a big hobo party under the freeway. Baby Gramps was awesome and I need his CD. The Bad Things rocked my panties as usual. I danced myself sober durring their set.

Thursday was Tiffany's funeral. It was heart wrenching. I especially like Star and Carley toasting Tiff with what other than PBR in the church and putting the cans with the flowers.
After the funeral I was in charge of keeping an eye on Noel since Daif had to go to work. We ended up at Charley's getting drunk by about 4pm. Got cut off at Charley's, went to Linda's. But I got kicked out and I forgot my purse.
Noel has alot of incriminating pictures...rrrr. I got so laughed at yesterday. For puking in the little garden on the back porch of Linda's and not being able to hold my head up. Daif had to hold my up by my hair. I guess Noel started throwing shit around when I was kicked out of Linda's and the rest of them got thrown out right after.
Crazy night. Crazy, crazy night.

Our show on November 30th is going to rock. We're performing with Ted's band and Bardo. But we get to decide when we're going on stage and when Bardo is.
It's going to rock. But I'm nervous about throwing cheek and throat spears on stage. Part of me doesn't want to be paired with Noel so he'd be spearing me, but I think he'd throw them fast, so maybe that would be better than someone being gentle with me.

I need to stop writing now.

this weekend.   
02:42am 30/10/2004
 
mood: depressed
Tiffany passed away in her sleep wednsday night. Not really sure why yet. It's really hard to take. Very depressing. It's going to be especially hard for Noel to carry that coffin in our show on Sunday night. He's not going to be the only one crying.

On a lighter note, we have our shows this weekend. 2 completely different shows.
Saturday night, Dawn of the Dead 3. Studio 7. 5pm-5am. $20. We go on at about 2am. I'm suspending in that show very excited but it's a little weird, I can't stop thinking about Tiffany.

Sunday night, Show at Jem Studios. I think doors are at 7. $5, less with a costume. 21+. We're on around 9:30.

We have a write up in the Seattle PI for saturday.

Body modification performances to be held this weekend

Perhaps you recall reading about the body modification lifestyle in the pages of our Life and Arts section last year (seattlepi.nwsource.com/lifestyle/116874_bodmod.html).

If you're interested in seeing any performances, you're in luck: There are two coming up this weekend. Be forewarned, however, that these shows aren't for the squeamish.

The PURE performance group will be doing suspensions -- hanging from ropes attached to hooks implanted in the body -- Saturday night at Studio 7 (110 S Horton St.; 286-1312). It's an all-ages show and that starts at 1:30 a.m.

The show Sunday night at Jem Studios (6004 12th Ave. S.) is 21-and-over and starts at 9:30. For more information go to www.puresuspension.com

Jet the Jetto pumpkin...   
03:31pm 19/10/2004
 
mood: happy
Yesterday was so much fun.
I had my interview at the Bon in the morning. That was good. I got hired in the jewelry department. I wanted womens but they didn't have any openings...aww well.
That's going to look so good on my resume. I'm so excited.

After that. Phill and I went to Cates house and we got 4 pumpkins, 3 for carving and 1 for eating. We carved pumpkins and Cate made a bunch of pumpkin pie. Cate and Phill's pumpkins were really good. Cates was actually amazing. Mine was rather Getto looking...therefore he was named Jet the jetto pumpkin.
Pumpkin pie was amazing.
The Schwann man came while we were carving pumpkins, Jeffs pretty cool.
After that we ordered Romio's at like 11pm. We were listening to Disney Radio durring dinner and Portobello Road from Bedknobs and Broomsticks came on...Cate had never seen it. So we rented Bedknobs and Broomsticks. I was so happy about that. I love that movie and hadn't seen it since I was little.


I'm so excited for the performence on the 30th.
We're on at 2am.
www.xilrecords.com go to the calander for details.
$20, I think it may be more if you buy at the door. $10 for the afterhours party...which starts at 2. so you can see us at 2, but you may miss the beginning...so iunno.
It's gonna be so pretty. Daif used the money we got for the Re-Bar show to build a new rack for the show. It's so hot, it's like 8 feet long and for teetering. That's all I'll say about our show. Except that Jen and I will KICK ASS!

  One more show this month.
October 30th we're doing another Halloween show for XIL records, 99.9, and 104.9.
We're playing with a shit load of bands including the Accused at Studio 7.
I've heard both 9pm and 5pm-5am. I dunno yet. Or price. But the show is called Dawn of the Dead.
We just got added to the bill yesterday so we will be on the posters that they're remaking.
The guy that called Daif about it came to our show last night and we blew his mind. He asked us what we needed for the show and gladly said yes to all our demands.
I'm so excited because the show is just Jen and I. Our first all girls show and by far our biggest show yet. Fuck posters and word of mouth...we're on the fucking radio!
I'm so incredably stoked. It's gonna be beautiful!

So last night rocked too. Everyone loved it. The kids from Bardo were so jealous. And we made $75. Rock on.

  In Lima still. Doing laundry. Waiting for it to be done. Got great boots, a manicure, and a pedicure yesterday.
Saw Manchu Picchu, sailed all day on Lake Titicaca and took a nap on the water, hung out with Miss Peru durring her photoshoot, got caught in a big storm on the amazon it a tiny boat while fishing for piranhas...I´d say all in all...great trip.
I´ll be home Thursday around noon.
Laundry sucks but my clothes got filthy at the amazon lodge...no electricity, sweating like a pig, go warm water, leaky roofs, muddy as hell...but so much fun and there was a building that was only for hammocks! and the best food ever!!! best sea food.

  Bumbershoot was fun. I went friday-sunday. I had a ticket for monday but Phill was sick and so we didn't go. It was fun overall. Saw The Divorce, Schoolyard Heros, The Briefs, United State of Electronica, Death Cab, and the Presidents on Friday. On Saturday I saw Unwritten Law, Grayskul, and Pedro the Lion, just kind of chilled out that day. Sunday was These Arms are Snakes, Cobrah High, DJ Cheb I Sabbah, Byrdie, Massive Monkeys, and Public Enemy. It was fun. I'm sad I missed the Pixies on Monday, but I had fun anyways.

Tomorrow morning I leave for Peru.
It'll be fun.
Bye Y'all.

Critical Madness...Saturday night...my first suspension!!   
06:48pm 23/08/2004
 
mood: indescribable
Saturday night rocked. Did my first suspension. 8 point coma. Fucking amazing. I wouldn't have done it with anyone else. Having Daif, Matt, and Paul throw my hooks, Jen holding my hands, X and Daif puling me up, and all the other PURE kids supporting me along with a bunch of newbies watching.
I was getting ready for the hooks, scared as fuck. It's one thing getting hooks in your back, it's another getting them on the side of your calves, top of your thighs, stomach, and tits...not chest, they were on my tits.
Jen was there holding my hands, rubbing my head talking to me, kissing my forehead. It helped a lot. They hurt like a bitch though.
Going up was so painful. I was crying moaning. When Daif yanked the last little bit of weight off the ground I just snapped. I was shocked by the feeling of it all. Everyone was silent. I was crying, shaking. As Mr. Pitts would say, "naked, vulnerable. I allowed myself to be at my worst in front of everybody. Totally exposed."
I got comfortable, but my stomach was always weird. the skin was pulled so tight across my back.(look at the pictures...it was farther up than my tits).

While I was up there I felt so small but so powerful. I had this feeling of insignificance, but that everyone is just as tiny as me. And it was so empowering. I love how everyone put in there part for getting me up there. They gave me hugs, talked to me, rigged up the rack, threw hooks, pulled the rope. We all worked together to create something so beautiful and I loved it.
It was the most amazing thing I've ever experienced.


Yesterday Daif, Noel, and I went to hempfest. I got way too fucked up. I have a hangover from those brownies. That has to be one of the only places you can buy drugs while there are a group of cops less than an arms length away and they couldn't give a fuck.

I'll post pictures on another post so that you don't have to look if you don't want to.

My name.,,   
03:06pm 20/08/2004
  Description of Your First Name of: Elizabeth
Although the name Elizabeth creates the urge to understand others, we stress that it limits self-expression and self-confidence causing moods. This name, when combined with the last name, can frustrate happiness, contentment, and success, as well as cause health weaknesses in the fluid systems, heart, lungs and bronchial area.
Your name of Elizabeth contributes sensitive, creative, and idealistic qualities to your nature that could be expressed in a variety of literary or artistic fields. You desire harmony and refinement in your environment and in all your personal associations. Although mentally quick and intuitive in recognizing the thoughts and feelings of others, you experience a lack of fluency in verbal expression in responding.

Description of Your First Name of: Buff
Although the name Buff creates the urge to be self-expressive and happy, it can cause a overbearing, materialistic approach that frustrates higher humanitarian qualities if it is not combined with a balanced last name. This name, when combined with the last name, can frustrate happiness, contentment, and success, as well as cause health weaknesses in the liver, bloodstream, and reproductive organs.
The name of Buff has given you organizing ability as well as an expressive, positive, and self-confident nature. You are able to work well with people and can capably direct their activities. You enjoy music and art, and love to meet and mix with people. An appreciation for quality has prompted you to strive for the best standard in dress, material possessions, and choice of food.


I can't wait for tomorrow night. I'm going to do my first suspension. I don't know if I'm going to do a coma suspension or a suicide suspension. I think a coma would hurt a lot more but that's what I'm going to be doing in the halloween show. It's more hard core. Everyone does a suicide. I don't know anyone that has done a coma...I'm sure I do, but not that I know of...I've never seen it live. Daif's probably done one though.
I don't know what I'm going to do yet, but I'm excited anyways.
