Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?

Oh GEEZ my neck hurts like hell.
Went for a metal gig that Sacwrath was invited to, along with Kolbenfaust and a few other bands earlier this Sunday. Oh, which reminds me, a link! Click here to see a bunch of facts (and jokes) on the number 666! Pretty funny and interesting, as well as learning (from other sources as well) that 616 is the very likely correct number of the beast, as the oldest manuscript that we have of Revelation has 616 written instead of 666. Too bad for all the bands that use it, and all the idiots who are afraid of the number!
Lmao, anyhoo, on the fourth day of Chinese New Year, Miki invited Symposium to go to her place to celebrate and eat, play games and all. Even on the Wednesday before that day, she had reminded us. So on Thursday, the Sunway guys met up and went to Cheras, supposedly to pick me up and head over. Then they got screwed over. Apparently they called Miki and told her that they were on the way to Cheras, when Miki told them she had a fever and she cancelled the plans. Without telling us. What the hell. And the way she said it wasn't a nice way either. It was like (in a snobby, condescending tone) "I HAVE A FEVER!" as if that granted her all the bitching rights in the universe. Bloody hell. Then they called Michelle and Aaron, who promptly cancelled on the spot saying they wanted to sleep in, 'cause they were heading to Penang at night. All these inconsiderations pissed off everyone else, and in the bloody morning when the plans were supposedly set. So they went to my house where we decided what to do. We agreed to go for lunch and karaoke as was planned, and think of the subsequent plans later. So yeah, we sang, ate, drank and all that at Neway Karaoke before heading out and wondering what was our next phase. Someone suggested going to Genting and spending the night there, leaving in the morning, and I agreed, as did everyone else!
So while heading to the road that would lead to Genting, I suddenly remembered THAT I HAD WORK THE NEXT DAY. LMAO. I honestly had no idea how that slipped my mind! It just came to my head, and I was like "Stop the car! NOW!". Sareena and James, in the same car wondered what the hell was going on. I told them I still had work, and called the other car with the rest. We went back to my place where I told them that I'd pass, and that they could all just go along without me. But they kept insisting I go! Lmao, from getting an MC to asking for an extra day of leave and other unreasonable stuff, until they finally decided that we should go to Genting and spend the night there, but leave in the wee hours of the morning, in time for me to get to work. And we did. Awesome eh -.-. We went to Amber Court once again, chilling out, enjoying the freezing whether and eating cup noodles, sharing stories, jokes, and for the guys, sparring with one another for fun. I ended up accidentally elbowing Andrew Joel in the lip, busting a small hole that bled. Ironically Redzuan said for us not to stop fighting until one of us bled, prompting Andrew to spit out a wad of blood. HA.
We also acted like idiots to the drivers heading to Amber Court. We walked along the dark, desolate road that led to Amber Court and did stupid stuff when a car drove past, like hump one another, dance like idiots, give a scary face, give a smiling face that looked scary, stand with our heads down and in one line, and a lot of other stuff. Brilliant! Around 5am we slept for an hour in our cars outside of Amber Court before leaving for breakfast, and leaving for Kuala Lumpur. Back at my place, I headed off to work, where I proceeded to be a zombie at work, unaware of almost anything that was said that day. Yeah. But it was a great time spent, and also a great time to share a lot with each other and just have fun. Luckily the idiocy and inconsiderations of the 3 Cherasians didn't ruin our plans as a whole. In the end, we had much more fun than expected!
And as I was saying earlier, after church service and fellowship, I attended a metal gig hosted by Heartshaped Studios, which invited Sacwrath, Kolbenfaust and many other bands. This was by far Sacwrath's best performance yet and I was impressed. Kolbenfaust did a brilliant job as well, and Justin and Asri were each featured in one of the other band's songs. Much charisma and showmanship, as well as a great crowd. A few hardcore kids were being idiots though. I can say that although I'm not really a fan of hardcore dancing, its become a very common feature in metal gigs and is more or less part of the scene and I'll respect it as so. But the people doing the hardcore dancing in this gig did some moves that I had never seen before, and that's not a compliment. Retardedness went to a whole new level with the moves they've made and several kept falling over to the floor or into the people standing at the sides, which pissed off quite a number of spectators. Luckily they were only doing these moves for a few bands. I headbanged till my neck hurts like hell now, and my entire body is stiff with soreness. It's as though I went for a full body workout at the gym, except with none of the physical benefits and all of the pain. However, I enjoyed it greatly, and I was pleased to discover a new band, Behind The Death, that I quite liked. Resembles an unpolished Cradle of Filth for some reason.
But yeah, time was well spent and enjoyed this week, and now my body shall pay for it!
