Apollo Ghosts’ final show was last night! Which was a tremendous show but also made me feel weird and sad.

Jarrett talking about how Apollo Ghosts are still his favourite band
That guy from CiTR’s excellent performance of Why Can’t I be the Man On-Stage? And also throwing out home made AG patches into the audience.
During the B-Lines set, when Ryan spit on Chris-a-riffic and they were both so happy about it (I don’t think I have ever seen that guy smile on stage, pretty great)
When my glasses were knocked from my face into the pit and I miraculously found them seconds later, unharmed
When Adrian Teacher came down at the end to give the audience a hug
Anyhoop, it was a really nice show, but also the end, which is sad. I was thinking about how this year will be my first Music Waste without AG, but at least there are side projects (Gal Gracen, Tough Age).
Very rarely do you hear about the effects of depression from a super pretty blonde girl who is not only smart but also hilarious - that may sound stupid but I think this will make people more aware that depression really can happen to anyone.
And that it is so common, yet most of the time we’re so unequipped to handle it when it’s happening, either in ourselves or in our friends/family/loved ones, because it isn’t talked about enough. Which is why it’s especially great when someone makes something like this, that is going to be relatable to a lot of people! Ugh, I can’t even articulate how much I love this.
Yesterday, I passed my skating skills test that allows me to go to the more advanced Raw Meat classes! Woo! (Other than the part where I fell during my 25 in 5,) it went pretty well (I still got 19 laps, good enough!).
So today to celebrate I got some outdoor wheels and new laces. I love my Poison hybrid wheels but these Radar wheels go a lot smoother on the roads around my house.
Terminal City Rollergirls Season Opener tonight! I’m NSOing my first real bout and pretty damn stoked. Also, The Pack A.D. are going to be there to blow the first whistle. So many things I love under one roof!
