“After careful consideration and many sleepless nights, here’s what I’ve decided: There’s no such thing as a grown-up. We move on, we move out, we move away from our families and form our own. But the basic insecurities, the basic fears, and all those old wounds just grow up with us. We get bigger, we get taller, we get older. But, for the most part, we’re still a bunch of kids, running around the playground, trying desperately to fit in. I’ve heard that it’s possible to grow up. I’ve just never met anyone who’s actually done it. Without parents to defy, we break the rules we make for ourselves. We throw tantrums when things don’t go our way. We whisper secrets with our best friends in the dark. We look for comfort where we can find it. And we hope… against all logic, against all experience. Like children, we never give up hope.”—(via xchelseamorning)
Coheed And Cambria are currently opening up for Soundgarden on a monster tour, but last night, Michael Todd, Coheed’s bassist, was arrested for armed robbery. Todd apparently held up a Walgreens by “claiming he had a bomb” in order to get Oxycotin. He was later arrested and is being held on bail for $10,000 and will be arraigned this morning.
