boring thread about my life. or lack there of.

Recommended Posts

last night was creepy. it might have been creepy because i was listening to portishead walking alone to my yard.

 

there were several odd things going on at my yard though. all of the red "stop" signs were up, which has never happened before. also the "key" to switch the lines was left inside the uh.. whatever its called... thing that switches the lines. also never happened before. while walking down to my usual painting area a car started coming.. so i went over into some bushes. the car drove all the way down to the end of the yard. a guy got out, smoked a cigarette, then hopped back into the truck and drove back. so i wait 5 minutes just to see if tonight is a go back home now night or not. nothing happens. so i hop acouple lines and start painting.. i see an engine approaching in the distance. i dont hear anything and im not sure if it was pulling anything or not, but i went and sat down for awhile to wait for whatever was going to happen happen. i waited 10 minutes and i still heard nothing so i went back and looked down the line. nothing. this was exceptionally odd because i could see acouple miles down the track and this was a residential area, so there was no way they just flew out of there. i brush that off as well and get back to painting. i then hear voices. two guys talking. i didnt hear any body walking up.. but it sounds like they are right on the other side of the car i was painting. so i look under the car. none was there. the talking had stopped. i looked down the line (looking in the cars) and there was no one in there.

 

i then decided to hurry up and just get the fuck out of there. on my way out of the yard there was a new line full, but i heard no noises at all. no train coming in.. no whistles of air brakes.. last night might have been a dream.. but all of my cans are empty.. so..

 

the end. <3

when i first started reading this i didnt put it together that you meant train yard, i was thinking more like backyard, so i was all....what red lights?

 

but anyway, i dont know anything about zombie train workers or whatever, but "only you" is a good song.

last night was a much better night. i got to the yard about an hour before sundown so i set my bag down in some bushes and went on a walk with my camera. got some pretty good shots of alot of stuff i usually never catch. i painted. and went home. "buket" had streaked every single car. atleast on the line i was walking. i went home and watched comedy central.. (i forget what the first 2 shows were) and reno 911. i then decided to go back and paint some more. as soon as i walked into the yard a new line came in with alot of older cars. painted and went home again. i also noticed on my way out that "riot" and some one else had bombed up and down one side of the line. they bombed the side that faces the road the workers use to drive from end to end as well. i also found montana cans littered around the tracks. i don't know if i was just too stupid to notice it earlier.. or just caught up in my own world, but there are a bunch of retards that paint at the same yard as me.

 

music for last night was: blood brothers, immortal lee county killers, camera obscura.

i'd never listen to music while out painting or even walking around in a train yard. theres really no point to it, for safety and awareness reasons.

 

i usually listen to something in the ride to get me pumped up or relaxed and its stuck in my head for the remainder of the night...

^no doubt, thats why i though he meant backyard, because i couldnt imagine listening to music in my yard.

 

as someone wise said before me, you might as well be listening to jailhouse rock because that shit is going to get you in trouble.

it's very very low. i can't even hear it over the paint hiss. i dont even realize its there until i try listening for it. its just so i have something to think about when i stand back to see where i plan to go next or to let the paint dry. it is also only in 1 ear.

Can i just find immortal lee county killers on slsk or something like that? Just curious becuase you and i seem to enjoy much of the same music, so it would seem to be worth checking out.

they would be kinda hard to find.

 

i like alot of different shit so you better watch out before you go taking my advice on music.

 

immortal lee county killers .. its kinda like.. bluesy caveman rock and roll. at first i was kinda skeptical.. i didnt really like his voice too much. but it grew on me and they are one of my favorite bands now.

 

www.leecountykillers.com

 

also check out estrus records (im not sure what the url is) from what i recall, they have mp3s of every band they produce.

yeah, the most i've ever encountered in a yard was a cop driving by while i was going to the spot, and some yard workers doing some shit and not paying any attention to me...oh yeah, and i met that cool conductor who talked to me as i snapped pics of his train....nice guy.
