I hate my job..


I work for a multi-million dollar restaurant which boasted the highest profit margins in the company last year, and my boss gets to go to Europe for two weeks as a reward. Meanwhile, I haven't had a raise in 3 years.

boysetsfire's Last Tour Ever

The influential post-hardcore band finally announced the long-awaited dates for their last tour ever, four or five dates in Europe, and possibly one date in Philly, in May. I personally am bummed by this news, although they announced their "retirement" late last year at a show in Germany. It just seems now. I've only seen them live once, at The Beat Kitchen in Chicago last year, and they fucking rocked the joint!! I speak on behalf of many of their fans, I'm sure, of the fact that their bigger-than-life personalities and energetic live performances will be greatly missed.
