A little touch of editing magic, and three of my favorite records become one. Without #Wrongdoers #Meridional and #Redeemer tonight, there’d probably have been plenty of more nails driven into tonight’s casket. Thanks @normajeanband. #reallife #truth #picturethis #normajean #insomniac #roc #rochester #rochesterny #whyamiawake #roughnight #thingscouldbeworse #tomorrowsanotherday #redemption (at Town of Irondequoit)
With their 6th album on it’s way, featuring both members new and old, it’s hard not to reminisce through my couple of years following my favorite band @hastethedayreunion. There’ll be plenty more of these posts, but for now, check out their IndieGoGo campaign and donate to what’s bound to be a musical adventure unlike anything before. These gentlemen have been a great group of friends through good times and bad, and having had the opportunity to express this to them many times before, has been an absolute privilege. They deserve nothing, but the most success and positivity that this world can offer. To them I say thank you once more and to you I say…CLICK HERE (and if you donate, let me know and I’ll send you something special!): https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/haste-the-day-new-album/x/5712941 #hastetheday #collage #htd2105 #htd2014 #rochesterny #truth #youvechangedmylife #pictures #posivibes #appreciation #foreverposi #giglife #grateful #houseofguitars #jotitdown #lifechanging #candid #vanity #theseguys #memories #hxc #music #musicappreciation  (at House of Guitars)

I’m very excited to announce a big step in an amazingly community-centered and fun-filled direction with my recent employment at HART’S LOCAL GROCERS! 

Located behind the #LittleTheatre and in the center of all the hustle and bustle of downtown #Rochester’s #EastEnd district, #Hart’s is a grocery store like no other, uniting the community, carrying the finest local products and implementing ideals that create economic growth and support through out the area. My new family at Hart’s will be one I take great pride in, and as the Assistant Supervisor of a team of great individuals, I’ll have more positivity in my life then I’ve ever had from people of all walks of life. It’s with the utmost sincerity when I say, I’ve been waiting for this opportunity for years, and now, to be standing here in such an amazing establishment, I can barely describe the joy and comfort I feel.

Not to worry, you can still visit me at the great, great #HouseofGuitars, where I’ll be dishing out all of your musical obsessions at light speed, as I have been for four years this past July (Another great reason to celebrate)! That place will always be and still is my #secondhome.

With so many things in development for me (a #poetry #compilation in the works, #musical projects to be revealed, and a few other soon-to-be-made announcements) I just had to pause and make this known. 

I am eternally #grateful for what this world is giving me this go around. Let’s keep these #posivibes going! #wonderwhatsnext #roc #reallife #rochesterny #truth #youvechangedmylife #photo #picture #pictures #appreciation #foreverposi #friendstiltheend #streetlife #happy #happiness #lifechanging #candid #vanity #memories #hartslocalgrocers #hartsgrocers  (at Hart’s Local Grocers)
If I like a large series of your posts, it’s because I think you’re fucking awesome. I rarely like any posts. Not that I’m a gift and that you should worship my interest, by any means, just that I’m picky and pride myself in what I think is quality. I think this goes for a lot of us. I hope. Reason I’m posting this statement? Because the sincere lack of appreciation being communicated in Tumblr is fucking weak. When did this inter-world become a haven for really bad selfies (duck faces included!) and absolutely little to no communication? Ask questions! (Real questions.) Tell people they’re gorgeous! (You’re self deprecating lonely ass may find yourself someone that cares about YOU too.) Post things of true quality, and look for those qualities in others posts, and exploit them! (We can only take so much porn, people.) Start making a friend or two. (The world is big, believe it or not.) Start making friends. (That’s what I’ve done, and that’s what I always did.) Use words that matter, don’t waste your breath. And, sweet nothings are better than useless nothings. Take care, and worship yourselves and one another. You’re beautiful in unique ways and the world could use that type of positivity in it. -COREY JOSEPH

(You may recognize these folks from a previous post, so let’s call this the well awaited sequel to what I’ve been waiting to post for a while!) There’s no denying that the band I really wanted to see, right from the very first announcement of #941thezone’s #Bonzai2014 was J. Roddy Walston and the Business! Having met them at a previous zone event, I immediately found a kinship with these 4 gentlemen that I have not attained in any other meet and greet: Sincerity. These dudes know what’s up when it comes to music, and they also have an amazing demeanor that makes their whole vibe instantly likable. I’ve met plenty of artists and bands that reek of longevity, but these guys have an attitude that just screams, “We love this, and we’re here to stay!”. Now let’s see each other again soon, okay? #roc #reallife #rochester #rochesterny #rocknfuckinroll #roversmorningglory #tremors #photo #picture #pictures #appreciation #scion #sahlensstadium #giglife #houseofguitars #happiness #lifechanging #vanity #meetandgreet #mugshot #memories #jroddywalstonandthebusiness  (at Sahlen’s Stadium)
Here I am pictured with one of the first bands I can say I’ve listened to from the start, beginning with their very first major label debut, “#WonderWhatsNext”, Chevelle! These three kind gentlemen not only took the time to say hi to a great majority of their fans, but paused in the middle of all the chaos to snap a quick picture with me. Rochester, NY’s, Bonzai Festival 2014 ended with an explosive finish, and Chevelle was the reason. #bonzai2014 #rochester #roc #rochesterny #941thezone #scion #roversmorningglory #sahlensstadium #chevelle #music #bonzaifestival #picture #photo #pictures #lagargola #venasera #appreciation #giglife #houseofguitars #vanity #memories #mugshot #meetandgreet (at Sahlen’s Stadium)
Strength is a characteristic that is earned from consistently showing integrity and fortitude in the toughest situations. All of us are faced with tribulations that make us question our foundations, our morals and what is important to us; I’ve been there and I’ve seen it. Let me make this clear (clearer, more now than ever) that I have watched people lose hope for the hopeless and I’ve seen blood abandon blood, and I’d give whatever I had to erase those moments from history. It’s these moments that helped shape the fight I have in me to persevere, but never have I had a human being put into my life with the type of strength that @liiissahhh possesses. Whether it was a lack of confidence in your talents, or even simply a bad day, you’ve pushed through it all your own, seeking out the help you needed and earning every last stripe as a strong, independent individual. With the current state of things, and the trials put before you with your mother’s health, I know you’ll be the best daughter a mother could ask for. And, knowing your mother’s innate ability to exude nothing more than the utmost strength in whatever room she’s in, there’s no way she didn’t raise a daughter twice as strong. You’re a gift. You’re a universal sign to stay strong and keep at whatever it is you put your mind to, and everyone could learn a great deal from your integrity, and your fortitude. I know I have. To your mom and to you, you’re the stars of the show and it humbles me to be in the presence of such strength. Now, kick cancers ass and don’t ever let a god damn thing bring you down. I love you both. #cancersucks #kickcancersass #daughter #photo #picture #pictures #giglife #friendstiltheend #friendsforlife #moms #mothers #momsrock #happy #happiness #lifechanging  (at The California Brew Haus)
I’ve never been one to look in the mirror, and accept what I see, but sometimes, you just need to take a chance and accept all of the “imperfections”. “Headshot, 2014”. #roc #rochester #rochesterny #reallife #therealthing #photo #photoop #picture #photograph #selfie #shameless #strikeapose #happy #happiness #headshot #candid #vanity #vogue #me #myself #mugshot #memories #greyhair #dimples #plugs  (at Town of Irondequoit)
Last night’s show with @normajeanband and @nightverses reinvigorated the dormant show-goer in me, and also reestablished what I know has always been true: It’s our spirit together, as a body of people united for one positive cause, that defines who we are as brothers and sisters in hardcore. I didn’t snap any pictures, or take any video, but this morning, with a fist still balled in hardcore jubilance, I snapped this momento. It’s not only a mark to signify my entry into a venue, it’s a similar mark to the ones I plan on seeing from many, many more shows to come. Thanks @normajeanband for giving us the show that some of us waited years to see, especially me! Oh, and @nightverses, guess who just gained a new fan?
