the end of the conversation, and the second time he saw her cry:
girl: so that’s it? just like that it’s done?
boy: i guess so. i’ll see you in june.
girl: i won’t be home in june.
boy: okay then.
girl: can you at least walk me to the door?
girl: i just had one more thing i wanted to say to you.
boy: then say it.
girl: i don’t want to infront of these people. after three years i deserve a little more respect than this.
boy: i’m so mad at you right now, i just don’t care.
girl: okay, well here it is: remember that last song on the cd i gave you? “kill” by jimmy eat world? i wrote down the lyric, “i loved you and i should of said it, but tell me just what has it ever meant?” well it’s like that. i just wanted to say it, so you knew, so there wouldn’t be any doubt.
boy: you’re selfish. you have no idea how selfish you’re being.
girl: okay. bye, take care of yourself please.
and when will you be seeing that awesome best friend you have? you know, the one with the southern accent, i hear she’s pretty amazing.
Are most of the people who work for TWLOHA “straight edge?”
No, actually, I don’t think anyone on staff would label themselves “straight edge”, even if they don’t drink. We have people who smoke cigarettes, and/or enjoy a drink from time to time. There are also people who don’t drink, because they prefer not to. For myself, I don’t smoke cigatettes, and I rarely drink. No reason in particular for the latter.
Here’s a toughie: Rob Pattinson, Zachary Quinto, or Ian Somerhalder for VDay? :P
Rob Pattinson, hands down, over and over for the rest of my life.
is it wrong that i’m attracted to landon pigg in whip it?
everything in me is screaming “no, stop it. it’s wrong.” but i just….i don’t know…
i’d say it’s just about that time. three months…haha
If you could select any person for the internship, who would it be?
Since you said any person, I’m going to be utterly ridiculous and say Rob Pattinson. Haha. :)
Valencia - These guys have more talent than 95% of the bands out there right now. I loved their first record, but I cannot put into words for you how amazing their second one is. No autotune or synth. No lyrics detailing how much they like to get wasted or the drama of “The Scene”. They make music about life, about things that matter. “Holiday” is a perfect song to illustrate what I’m talking about. On top of that, they’re some of the most legit dudes I’ve ever met. They care about their fans, and go above and beyond to talk to everyone that comes to a show. Become a pro at Words with Friends before playing JD - I think he has a natural talent for it. Listen to their music. I promise it will change your life.
Jamestown Story - Dane puts out a lot of EPs, but they’re all good. None of them sound rushed like other bands who put records out just for the sake of putting records out. His songs hurt because they are brutally honest and address a lot of things people don’t talk about. Which, if you’ve ever met Dane, is unexpected. He cracks inappropriate jokes and willing let me paint his toe nails red once (I have photos). He has a true talent for lyrics. Listen to “It’s Like a Knife in a Gunfight” if you need proof.
It’s rare to find a record where you don’t want to skip a single song. Both of these bands have them. “We All Need A Reason To Believe” by Valencia and “Love vs. Life” by Jamestown Story are two CDs I listen to in their entirety each time. I can’t bring myself to skip a single song because they’re all amazing.
If you like what you hear, please support them by buying their music. They poured their hearts and souls into these songs. It’s more than worth it.
What is the most amazing thing that has ever happened to you?
Gosh, that’s a great question. I guess what is amazing to me, might not be considered the traditional “amazing experience.” Of course things like graduating high school, and starting college were great, but for me so many moments from the past few years have been what stand out. My experience with TWLOHA the past year and half I think would be most qualified for this response. I’ve had some of the best conversations of my life. I’ve heard people’s stories. I’ve done something I believe in,. I’ve traveled. I’ve laughed. I’ve worked through hard things. I’ve learned important lessons. I’ve grown as a person. I think all of those things together are the best answer i can provide.
Is there any advice you would give for those wanting to intern with TWLOHA, on how to make a lasting impression?
Sure! The best piece of advice I can offer you is to let your heart shine through. Let your passion for the organization be your vehicle to convey what you want to accomplish during your internship. Be yourself, be creative. Let us see who you are. Be honest. Words on paper only say so much, so make the video you submit strong. We want to get a feel for who you are. :) I hope that helped!
