So im sitting in classnevin listening to Lifetime. Listening to Lifetime is always the best part of my day, is that fucked??haha. Im about to have a pineapple fanta! Fuck yes!!

Work was boring as fuck, we talked about christmas and shit. One of the lads was telling me that one year his dad set up the video camera and he would pause it, then stick a present under the tree, then unpause it and repeat the process like 20 times. I thought that it was the best shit ever and if i ever have kids its something i will def do. Lets be honest, the only time that you were ever truely happy in your life was when you still believed in the big man. Once you find out that he is not real you start to question everything and you realise that the world is fucked. I reckon i would give anything to feel that proper christmas feeling again just once, that was the real shit.

My brothers girlfriend went into labor this morning so id imagine im an uncle at this stage. i wonder what its gonna be like having a baby around the house, weird i reckon!!

My granny was 95 recently and she is still kicking it like its 1969!! she lives on her own and she still takes a stroll everyday, plays cards with the lads a few nights a week, listens to nu metal and is basically living the dream! It amazing the strange things you remember from over the years, she digs steve davis, she is killer at checkers, she hates chess, she never uses the front door of her house only the back, she always gives me caramelized onions even though she knows i hate them, she has it in her head that i still love the power rangers, everytime i see her she asks me what the red rangers name is? but i dont have the heart to tell her he is now a gay porn star. I dunno what im getting at here really. She has been sick the last week or so and i reckon she deserves a mention.

Im going to London on tuesday. If you are around come say hi!!!

Hanging out is what we do best

Its 11am on a thursday morning and im listening to Tiger Jaws wishing i was drinking a Strawberry Fanta.

Im trying to think what i have been up to lately. I have basically been working 5 days a week and most weeks i would have 4 practices. Haha yeah im busy BUT i found out yesterday that im only getting 2 days a week in work after next week. Its such bullshit. I have been working there for 8 years and i feel let down more than anything. Im fucked for money now but whatever. At least i get to spend more times with friends doing shit that i actually care about. Yo so hit me up and we will hang out, i dont get to see enough of people.

So when Forging Friendships got back from tour we were meant to record this album but instead we wrote another bunch of new songs, i dont think we will play any of them live till we get the album out. im 99% sure we will have it out this spring. We have a bunch of shows coming up:

Anyone wanna hang out today??

Young Wolves

Im not sure if many people know this but i joined another band recently. I reckoned i needed an outlet for some of the more positive stuff i was writing and this was the perfect chance. Believe it or not i actually attempt to sing. Its like Saves the day meets Daggermouth or something. Im really enjoying it so expect a demo soonish. there is a myspace page if you want a look:

I rang in sick to work today. I watched so much tv.
Has anyone seen that movie Reign over me?? I watched it tonight and thought it ruled. its about a man who lost his family in the September 11 attack on New York City and how he bumps into his old college roommate and the dude trys to help him through his shit. Its heart wrenching stuff and adam sandler is class in it.

I had no money this week to buy Comics. Gutted.

We are the same

Today i listened to Saves The Day. It made me feel a bit better.

Im currently drinking a can of this:

My personal life is fucked at the moment but i dont have the time to go into that. Im going to london next week to see To Kill, Liferuiner and Recon with the lads so that will take my mind off shit. In fact im pretty stoked on the trip.

Fuck work fuck work FUCK WORK!!! I need to get out of that place. Its actually driving me insane. I hate everything about the place. There are so many idiots that i would straight up love to punch in the face. Its actually soul destroying getting up in the mornings and going into that place. My boss John is a cool dude and thats most likely the only reason i still work there. There is this christmas party coming up and its in the city west hotel and like 20 people can go. so i was told that managers, supervisors and full time staff are going. So i was thinking yeah maybe i will go and have the laugh with Jason and Sarah(the 2 supervisors i work with, both really cool people)So i was chatting to them this morning and i was asking them if they were going and they didnt even get invited. I thought that was bullshit so i decided not to go. Fuck that type of shit.

Its my birthday next month, i have no idea if i will do anything though.

Why do dudes put out amazing acoustic albums and then ruin themselves by putting out some piece of shit full band country album or some shit. fuck that.
It happens way to much.


I wish my life was the final scene in an American Pie movie or some shit. tht would be rad. Someone dance with me. I will right you some songs or something yeah?? girls dig that right??appreciate it yeah??? get the fuck out of my life...

I need more fanta. ha i have never been more sarcastic in my life.

Our news, Today is tuesday.

Hi, How is everyone??

Work at the moment is actually the most boring shit ever. I had 6 cutomers today in 6 hours. I seriously get through a half a season of Fifa on the DS every day. I spent one day last week just doing training, thats how boring it gets. Don't ask me why but for some reason i said that i would do an extra day next week, Maybe i'm trying to drive myself crazy or something, oh and get this, there is a sweet radio but the CD player on it is broken. What the fuck???

I was sick to death of fifa yesterday so i read this:

It's called Superman Red Son. It's basically about what would have happened if superman had of landed in the soviet union instead of america and was brought up as a communist. It's an amazing read and you should really check it out. Superman, Batman, Wonderwoman, sure what else could you want.

I walked most of the way home from work today and it was nice to clear my mind and listen to some Lifetime!!

Someone pointed out that not everyone can comment my blog so i sorted that out.

Did you know that In Rwanda it is common to refer to all soft carbonated drinks as Fanta. Beverages which are not part of the Fanta range are also frequently preceded by the word Fanta, for example Fanta Coca for Coca Coca, and Fanta Sprite. WEIRD!!
It's kinda like the way Jon Boyce calls all Crisps Tayto!

If you wish to send me weird flavours of Fanta you can send them to:

Ian Kelly
5 Willow Park Lawn
Glasnevin North
Dublin 11

Hahaha Cheers!!

"i open the door to see if the sun had set or if the sky had finally fallen in on top of everything you see i cant help but feel confined within my own life i have no idea who the fuck i am maybe i will find the answers
or maybe i never will
but if i know one thing its that at least i will live dont give up on us because it hurt to much dont be afraid to live the life that you deserve if these are the last words that i will ever write to you i need you to know that i never wanted any of this that i never wanted to need you that i dont think i would do things differently because regrets are for men that were to afraid to give everything so fuck your confessions of regret because all thats left is fearless hatred fuck forgiveness you ruined everything"

I wrote that this morning. I have been feeling very on edge of late. I'm not really sure why to be honest. But i am totally stoked for winter! I love the lead up to christmas and all that shit!!

Forest Gump

I'm off work again today. I'm not sure if i will even end up leaving the house today but i might be hanging out with Laura and Chris. I have been feeling pretty good lately, life is sweet and i have some of the best friends a dude could ask for. That being said i also have a couple of shitty friends, i'm getting pretty sick of making plans with people and then they just dont bother to reply to texts and shit. I guess i'm not bother trying anymore, shit just isnt worth it. If i'm being honest i'm not sure why i have been trying so hard anyway, fuck it i'm done with that now anyway.

"If you hate your job, then you gotta quit, if you hate your city you gotta split. It´s not so hard to cut those ties and cut away. Just know: your friend are always behind you. Where ever you go, they´ll always be there, like you where always there for them, so thank you. For giving me hope, and making me go headstrong, heartstrong, and all out. And sometimes it´s like blake said (it best) when he wrote, "Did that no one everlive a life this hard?" ´Cause it gets hard, and it gets bleak, and sometimes you´ve gotta go it alone. But see it through, brave the storm and you´ll see that, come dawn, your friends are all behind you."

I love death is not glamorous!!!!!!

Nealo is back next month and i'm excited to go get a 3 in 1 and shit!! Keep aneye out for his new band! they will rule!!

To say that their are a few shows coming up would be a huge understatement! I'm so excited for the next few months!

I somehow managed to fuck up my shoulder last night. I'm actually in so much pain right now. haha.

I'm having a movie night with Sabrina tomorrow. She has never seen Forest Gump, What the fuck???

Thats all for now. Cheers.

This Is Dublin

I got really shit at updating my old blog and i was getting so many spam mails so i decided to make a change.

I have not been up to much lately. Just working and shit like that. I had the day off work yesterday, infact im not back in till monday which rules! I basically sat around yesterday reading comics.
I'm digging all the Civil War stuff at the moment!!

As you may or may not know, i have the internet at home again. It rules!
I spent the last few nights catching up on the tv that i have been missing out on.
I got myself up to date on One Tree Hill and Heroes! Both shows rule!! haha

I have recently discovered that fanta from the cinema is the greatest shit ever!!
I also love Fanta from can ora 1.5 litre bottle but im not to much into it from a 500ml bottle. Weird i know. I also heard about this recently:
Someone from the US please hook me up!!

The mighty Villa have got off to an amazing start this season. we won in the uefa cup last night and we made it through to to the group stages! I'm hoping we can have a decent run in the competition!

OK thats all for now. Cheers for reading!!
