Best Spur Of The Moment Ideas I've Had

I am usually one to think out most of my plans thoroughly however, every once in a while you just decide to do some stupid shit and it turns out awesome.
1Guster
Keep it Together


Writing a 16 minute EP in the slap-happy groggy haze of the night before Record Store Day 2013. Me and two other friends were sitting in my room about to go to sleep for the long day ahead buying music and watching bands at a record store in Dallas, when we started messing around on the instruments in my room. This eventually led to a fleshed out concept album of short ideas and motifs based on the act of channel surfing while watching television. We ended up getting between 2 hours to 15 minutes of sleep after writing and recording 12 short tracks and then leaving to stand in line at around 6 in the morning. We were very proud of the ideas established and this one off Ep ended up becoming something we have carried on with.

Whatever and Ever, Amen


Stealing all of the fortune cookies from Panda Express. Me and my girlfriend were bored and decided to one at a time grab handfuls of fortune cookies and then proceeded to enjoy every one of them. Sadly, they caught on and now hand out one fortune cookie to each customer at the register.

Meeting my friend Jesper. In sophomore year of high school, on the first day of my inter mural tennis class, I suddenly decided to be social and started conversation with a random kid sitting next to me. About 10 minutes into the conversation I noticed an accent that I hadn't given any mind to. I asked him where he was from and turns out he was a foreign exchange student from Stockholm. We became really good friends in that class and eventually started to hang out outside of class. By the end of the year, Jesper had become one of my closest friends and made a huge impact on my life. He showed me that it is possible to always have a positive attitude and take life by the balls and embrace every opportunity I was given. He also took me back to Stockholm with him and showed me a country other than the USA for the first time in my life. I continue to speak to and visit Jesper every year although, with the price of college, I don't know that I will be able to return to stockholm of arrange for him to return here.

Attending a game of Dungeons and Dragons. Now this was something I was extremely hesitant to do. A couple of my friend played pretty frequently and I looked down upon it much like most people I know. One day, when there was nothing to do in the quiet town of Allen Texas, my friend dragged me along to his friend Bishop's house. Most of the people there I had never met and I didn't have the slightest idea how to play and this event ended up being somewhat hectic. A few weeks later though, I was invited back and took up the strange opportunity. The guys in our group ended up becoming my best friends. I will never forget the times spent playing D&D (a childish game of fantasy) and hiding on the golf course because we were under age and smoking cigars.

Cliff jumping. My girlfriend found a video on YouTube of some kids cliff jumping into a giant reservoir of amazingly clear, beautiful water in the city just north of our own. One day when we were hanging out alone, we decided to go on a quest to find this spot. After tireless efforts and many bug bites, we found the place. This became a spot me and my friends ended up visiting often that summer, having a blast jumping 50 something feet into the wonderful feeling water and swimming towards the islands erected in the middle of the reservoir. Although we ended up getting caught for trespassing and had multiple run-ins with the cops, this place will always hold fantastic memories.
6 Mastodon
Leviathon


Going to see Ghost, Mastodon and Opeth. Two of my friends pronounced that they wanted to go to this show and I was quite indifferent. I had listened to The Hunter and a couple of Ghost and Opeth songs so it wasn't until the day of that I officially decided to go. This ended up being my first real metal show (despite seeing Korn in 7th grade SOOOO BRUTALL). This was sort of the tipping point with metal for me. After this I was finally able to somewhat fully accept metal. I had always been hesitant due to the harsh vocals (such as Akerfeldt's) and the presumption that all metal sounded the same. For some reason seeing these bands live opened up a door that led me straight to some of the bands that I absolutely adore now.

Blues of the Bayou


Deciding on my college. I had been looking for the right place for me for a while and stressing intensely over where I would end up. One of the many sleepless nights junior year, I was browsing college matching websites when I came across the school that I'm currently enrolled in. After one video and seeing the offered degrees, I decided that this was where I was meant to be.

Drinking most of a handle of Fireball Whiskey.

Learning to play guitar. Just one day I decided to use my saved money as an 11 year old to buy an epiphone SG and teach myself guitar. This has been a major part of my life ever since.
11Rush
A Farewell to Kings


Listening to Rush's discography. Not fueled by anything, just decided to all of a sudden.
12 Haunted Horses
The Watcher


Spending a night in New York City. On my way to Sweden sophomore year, my friend that was going with me to see Jesper grabbed the wrong passport and ruined our whole flight plan. This ended up with us stuck in Newark, New Jersey for a night. My mom had warned me not to leave the hotel because she was worried about me being alone so far away at night. With every intention of obeying my mom, we staying in the room until we got too bored and then explored the subway system until we found time square. This was my first time in New York and to suddenly and unexpectedly experience it all was astonishing. Never did I think that something like this would happen but I'm pretty glad it did because exploring New York City was a nice change of pace from the suburban life in texas.

Drinking coffee. Always hated it, one day just decided it was for me and started enjoying it. Coffee is grand.
14Mogwai
Young Team


Going to Good Records. One day, after having a meeting about a gig for my band in Dallas, we decided to check out a record store I had just heard about. This place has provided entertainment, all of the music that I own basically and a glimmer into whatever small music scene dallas has to offer.
15We Were Skeletons
Blame and Aging


Realizing that My Chemical Romance is not in fact the greatest band on the planet. I had a massive boner for this band from Three Cheers to The Black Parade and somewhere in middle school I just decided that it was time to move on. I think this was mostly due to the god awful fan base and my discovery of Led Zeppelin.
16Wo Fat
The Black Code


Deciding to ask my girlfriend out. In sophomore year I had a crush on this girl named Kayla, only to find out that she liked someone else. This made me extremely upset and in an attempt to get over her (which I didn't realize at the time), I dated one of her friends. This went on awkwardly for a few months and made my first relationship a terrible and unappealing experience. After that relationship had ended the feelings for Kayla had not left and I realized that finally. After two months or so of being a mopey douche, I decided to just kiss her one day and that kickstarted my current three year relationship.
17Aesop Rock
None Shall Pass


Listening to this and deciding I enjoyed hip hop.

Quitting sports. This was hard for me as it was one of the strongest bonding points with me and my dad over the span of my life. Telling him one day in 8th grade that I was done with it all and didn't want to play any sports anymore ended up making me much happier and focused on things that I care about.

Making this list. It's been fun
