I made a Tumblr so that I would have a place to put 1 new song per day (since thats my goal). I had filled up my myspace song slots, so I kind of lost steam for a bit, but now that I can just keep uploading songs there, iv been writing like crazy. Im a little backlogged but I will maybe (or maybe not) keep up. Living in boston is helping with getting new material too.

so add me and check it out!


(if you want to, they take 5 seconds to set up)

The show tonight was great. We brought 20 people to a boston show, which is pretty good for a scene we havent done an intense amount of promoting for, OR a show that we kinda dropped the ball on getting the word out. Im also running into more and more people who have Nemes on their ipod and dont know me (or anyone else in the band) real good feelings. Hopefully soon we get word on when our stuff goes up on itunes and hot topic gets back to us with a number for how much of a shipment they want.

I checked out the new digs im gonna be moving into. SWEEET PAD.

Im glad this is private so none of my students can read me misspell sweet.

Coming up on one month in Boston

July 21st, 2009 (10:24 am)

Living here is so amazing. There is always something to do, and I finally got a T Pass so I can just zoop around wherever I want whenever I want. I dont understand my friends who have them and just choose to do nothing.

Work is going great, I am connecting pretty well with the kids. I have an interview to be a Music Director at a community center nearby my apartment. I would enjoy that, I beleive. You need to have "advanced skill" in "at least one instrament". I guess since drums is the only one I play REALLY well we would be doing a lot of drum circles!

The apartment is going well. It started off me living with I think 5 guys (i think) who were all gay, so it was kinda...ehhhhh. But the couple whos apartment it ACTUALLY IS asked them to leave so it was quiet untill....

...the terror that is Gordita moved in. Yup, I live with my kitty again. Shes loud and obnoxious and rude. I need to get her fixed. Im a horrible cat lover.

Today Chris and I are going all around boston promoting for the show we are playing tomorrow night at Harpers Ferry. its 148 Brighton Ave in Allston, MA. 8 bucks, 8 o clock 18+. lots of 8's. Please come its going to be awesome!

Has just about the most accepting and supportive music scene, once you find the right show. We played with all these bands last night who were all different: Big brass bands, metal bands, sludge bands, and everyone rocked out for each other and us. The show was also made with a weeks notice, and the bands had a pretty good draw for a weeks notice.

They even cheered on the slightly akward tight pants wearing emoish acoustic duo that we brought with us to the show. They were suprised, but they were 17, I thought genre defined who you were as a person back then too.

Im behind on rent woot. But I will figure it out.

current location: Home, Worcester, MA
current mood: cheerful
current song: Passenger Seatt- Death Cab For Cutie

Today was a pretty amazing day. I worked an overnight shift at a warehouse job I randomly got, It was rough after being awake for 24 hours (and then working a 9 hour shift) but I made it through. I woke up to find out it was 2pm and 2 of my roommates moved out.

Yes, 2 of my roommates moved out. Or are in the proccess, anyways. My one remaining roommate, Ryan, says our rent wont be affected because their name is on the lease....but for some reason I am somewhat sketched out. I hope I don't end up having to pay double what I do now, cause I am having a hard enough time as it is.

I took my teachers test and passed. Im certified to be a teacher. Go me. Unfourtunatly, this journal will probably have to be deleted so my students dont hack into it and see how horrible at grammer I am.

Then I met a pretty cool guy. Haha he is so small its pretty cute, hes like 5'4". I like the idea of him, I dunno hes a pretty good mix of different things. I know hes a good guy cause I asked him if he was seriously a midget and made fun of him for having rainbow flip flops, and he didn't hate me after that. Sense of humor is key. He plays piano, so I kind of want to see if he can put piano over this song I wrote after I met him (its not like about him in some mushy type way, its more about a situation hes going through that I felt inspired by).

I think guys who are cute and who inspire me to write songs upon meeting them are a good sign.

Oh, and people sang along to my songs at the Haze. As in, all of my songs. This has never happened before.

Cool man

stealing music from myspace.

June 3rd, 2009 (01:07 pm)

I know that freemusiczilla used to steal mp3s from peoples myspaces, but the new myspace players are immune to it. does anyone know of anything that works, and more importantly...if you do, can you steal the songs from my myspace and send them to me @ mckillop.gregory@gmail.com ?

they are up at www.myspace.com/gregmckillop

I promise this isnt an advertisement, I just dont have a recording of SOOTG acoustic demo on my computer and I would like one :(
