These waters ripple because of everything I’ve done.
The waves leave me crippled because I’ve never been the one.
Maybe, I’m postal. I hurt everyone by myself.
Maybe the coast will save me from this hell.
The ocean blue brings me in too deep.
The sirens sing as I drown into eternity.
I’ll wash ashore, born again, in weeks onto an island that doesn’t sink.
My body will wake to an Earth that doesn’t shake.
My mind will be at ease as I walk upon the beach.
But first, I must drown in the ocean of all my doubts.
"If you’re ever lucky enough to find a girl who is a hopeless romantic with a dirty mind, you should hold onto that. Because she’ll be yours at two in the morning and at two in the afternoon the following day. She’ll kiss you where it hurts and until it hurts. And that’s important. Someone who not only knows how to turn you on but also knows how to treat you right is someone worth a little something… and a little more than usual."
EVERYDAY THE SAME DREAM is an art game about alienation and refusal of labour. You are a faceless, unnamed man going about his business. The game has alternatives endings. Will you end up going to work and working in a little cubicle like every day, or will you take another route and do something different for once?

OK LEMME TALK ABOUT EVERY DAY THE SAME DREAM.
My history of game design teacher had us play through this game for ten minutes one class, and then played it on the projector.
At first no one seemed to really get it, it just seemed like a daily life simulator with catchy music (the music carries the game beautifully, don’t play it on mute if you can help it).
Then some of the other students began murmuring and questioning the point of the game after a few play throughs.
Yes, there are different ways to end the day, but the game has only one true ending, which is reached after ending the day every way possible.
Don’t judge the game by the minimalist graphics and simple gameplay mechanics. Every Day the Same Dream is a brilliantly crafted and for some a highly therapeutic experience.
Things you do one day can and often will affect the following days, (your wife leaves you, the homeless man vanishes, you lose your job, etc.) Until you’re left with only one final option, which I won’t spoil.
To paraphrase my professor, this game makes you look for a deeper meaning, not just in the game but also in yourself. It takes you to a place within yourself you need to be to understand yourself and how you interact with the real world.
Play it all the way through and see for yourself.
I think everyone needs to hear this
I’m not on here as often as I used to be and I try to stay on top of the stuff that I’ve written, I don’t think anyone really cares, but I think I’m turning tumblr into a writing outlet for me. I mostly write lyrics for songs that never get played but there will be other stuff too. I’ll post other stuff once in a while, it depends on how I feel about it. I can totally see myself not even writing anything after this but who knows? Either way, I’m going to wing it and see what happens. If you guys could read some of my stuff, tell me if you like it, that’d be greatly appreciated. Reblog it. Like it. That’d be honestly really cool and I’d be very grateful. Thanks lots!
@sammyann_96 hooked me up with the sickest birthday pumpkin pie on friday! Thank you so much for Friday, I had lots of fun! (= #birthday #weekend #twentyyearsold
Reposting because hearing that a fan at @warpedtour would steal from one of the most earnest, DIY non-profits on the road is beyond heartbreaking.
There’s no corporate bullshit with @shirtsforacure - just a crew with a love a music, selling band shirts to help cancer patients in need.

What Amy said.
Shirts For A Cure and Beemer are great, please help spread the word.
This is so lame. Please help.
This is down right terrible. No faith in humanity.
