Doctors touch and hands are cold
Doctors lie but they are still noble and old
Doctors never told you to be bold
But you buy what doctors have always sold

Plain white walls up and down each hall
Nurses curse and are always on call
Each doc' is skinny and tall
And their needles are trend 'round here
Just like polos at your local shopping mall

Paint the white white whites with red red red
Paint the red red reds with blue blue blue tears you have shed
Clinch teeth, bite toungue, suck your lip and wish for dead
Clinch fists, bite nails, suck your breath, wake up, you're in your bed.

"What were you thinking when you were dreaming about the future?" Version 2.0 [08 May 2005|11:04pm]
[ mood | hitthehay ]

Here is an article a talent scout did for us. This article is going to be in the New Orleans music zines: Anti-Gravity and Six Ten Split and the New Orleans Punks dot COM, within a few weeks.

"Local Youth Rock the Music Scene

(New Orleans) Youthful Rockers, Ian Sisk and Sean Hendler comprise ALLAIRE, which is a contemporary acoustic power pop Emo band. The band was originally started in Florida but when Sisk moved to New Orleans he struck out on his own. “Despite many years with makeshift bands, I decided to go solo after forcing to break up the Orlando, Florida local band, Blame Boddah, as a result of me moving to New Orleans,” Sisk said. Allaire is a collaboration of music and sounds with Sean.”

In late April of 2005, Ian met Sean, a bassist/guitarist/singer/songwriter in Metarie, Louisiana. Although new to music, Sean's style was very much in line with Ian's. Sean was invited to join Allaire within moments of chatting. Together they bring a matured emotional response to the life around them.

Writing about life experiences is not new to Sisk. “I begun on Valentines Day when I was 12,” Sisk said. “I went to a dance with my girlfriend at the time where afterwards she broke up with me. I didn't know how to handle it and let my emotions and feelings go. So I bought a notebook and just started writing and have been writing ever since.” “In eighth grade is when I first started writing lyrics. I’ve always appreciated music and was raised on classic rock,” Hendler stated. Both these young men have strived to write with an understanding of the confusing somewhat challenging world around them.

Take for instant their song, “Pine Street” “The intro to pine street is from the movie SLC Punk,” Sisk said. “In that scene the main character finds his friend has died. I wrote the song about moving away from my friends in Florida, which was a rough time for me. And the line "You were my only friend" really merged with the song well. Plus, the movie (aha and song) is a favorite of my friends and mine” While the intro is a bit unnerving it shows how a creative mind Sisk has and how he can interweave those thoughts into complex compositions.

While most young rockers seem to desire stardom or fame, Allaire is different. “I want the listener to have an overflow of emotions,” Sisk says. “I want there spine to dance with tinglement when they hear us. I want them to have the time of there life and be happy. I want our music to be powerful for the people who listen to it.” Hendler reflects on this very similarly, “I hope the audience will walk away with a better understanding of themselves and to feel like we are just an extension of them.”

They are no strangers to playing in front of audiences. They play regularly on Sunday’s at Neutral Ground, 5110 Danneel Street, New Orleans. “Oh, I’ve had people cry, dance, scream, everything, and that's what I want,” Sisk said on his fans reactions to his shows. “I want people to express themselves at our shows. I mean, it's music not an art gallery, even though it really is. Music is supposed to have an effect on you whether it's crying, screaming, dancing, anything, just let it loose.”

The name for their band is a bit mysterious but Sisk explains it well. “Everyone has loved my middle name, which is Allaire,” Sisk said. “But for this next music project I wanted the name to be mysterious and make people curious yet fun. I also wanted it to be a little of an inside joke between people who know me personally.”

Allaire is a promising young band with a bright future. They are enjoying the beginning stages of collaboration between Sisk and Hendler. They plan to record a new album later this summer after a short tour in Florida."

"What were you thinking when you were dreaming about the future?" - "Intro" by April Flies Kites [08 May 2005|04:02pm]
[ mood | snifflesnifflecoughsniffle ]

Well, I'd like to think nothing much has been going on, but then I'd be lying. I met this kid, Sean Hendler, who plays bass and guitar and sings. Now, I asked him into Allaire and he comitted. We havn't had a REAL practice, but we are this next weekend. Speaking of calender days, 2 weeks left in school, fuck; yes. Anyways, Sean introduced me to this other kid, Dominique, who plays drums. So, soon we are gonna have Allaire songs, done full band. Cause I mean, I'm starting to want to do the whole band thing cause you can't really move around with an acoustic guitar around your neck like you can with distorition and a 5 pound piece of sex. So it'll be cool. Oh, and don't worry, if things don't work out with the full band thing, don't fret, Allaire will still just be me and Sean (if he wants). I don't plan on ever giving up on that, I've gone to far and worked to hard to throw it away like I have in other bands. And by the way, Allaire is scheduling shows in Orlando and New Orleans and Metairie so WATCH OUT!

Sean invited me to Cypress Hall, literatly, a hall, where local bands play and the cover is just $6 all the time, which is fucking awesome. Friday I went with him, we picked him up and got dropped off and I met this girl April and this guy Zach, who are now my friends. Now, you'd think this Cypress place would be like a venue like somewhere in a city, fuck no, you have to go through a city, then a ghetto, JUST to GET to ANOTHER ghetto, then you're at Cypress. I think it's very amusing to see kids in denim and leather and hair in their eyes walk from back and forth from Game Klub (a run-down strip club with video games inside, really it still has the multi-colored floor and poles) to Cypress through the ghetto.
Gospel of Disception (G.O.D.), Tainted Oi, and April Flies Kites played that night. I didn't see GOD, but I saw Tainted Oi, they sounded like if you were to mix 30 year-olds with The Clash, The Sex Pistols, and Good Charlotte together. AKA they sucked fuck-ass. PLUS they claimed to be all METALXCORE with their double bass pedals and Scheter guitars, but when they did a cover of "The Little Things" by Good Charlotte, I fucking wet myself falling down the stairs laughing my way out of the concert hall.
April Flies Kites are fucking orgasmic, no lie, top favourite band of the Month of May (and April haha). The singer sounds like a tounger Chris C. from Dashboard, mixed with The Starting Line music; sorry, best way I can describe it, I dunno check em out on mysapce. I bought their cd and two pins.

Saturday I went back to Cypress, met up with Zach and April (Sean got grounded the night before, so he couldn't make it). We hung out and I met up with Hali and Jessie, Then Hali went home and Jessie went to Barnes N Nobles for some coffee. We stayed and watched New Orlreans screamo (The Arcane Theory and Same In San Juan). We didn't watch SkinKrawl, instead April, Jessie, Zach and I went to Game Klub and took pictures. Aprils whooped my ass TWICE at air-hockey and I whooped Jessie at it. Then April, Jessie, and I hit the racing game, Jessie fucking did some cheat and did some turbo shit and ran my ass off the road like I was a 2cent hooker (even though I am). So I came in second. Hey, at least I won. Then we went back to Cypress cause I was supposed to take April home so she could stay out later, her mom ended up picking her up and I sat and talked with Zach about life. Damn, it's moments like this where I feel like I was ripped out of a S.E. Hinton paperback novel.

"The Day Your Face Was On the News" [02 May 2005|09:38pm]
[ mood | sick. ]

This is a song I wrote for Luke Makin, a fallen friend.

"one am a phone call of distress
was made for the cause
of your death

the cars lined the streets
in the florida heat
in front of your house
quitieter than a mouse
where we paid our dews
the day your face was on the news

your back may be broke
and your skin may be bruised
but that didn't keep the sun from shining
the day your face was on the news

ohh luke

you tore up the roads
on your board
you tore up the avenues
like it was nothing to you
damn, kid, you're too cool

your back may be broke
and your skin may be bruised
but that didn't keep the sun from shining
the day your face was on the news

moment of silence
ohh to you ohh luke

your back may be broke
and your skin may be bruised
but that didn't keep the sun from shining
the day your face was on the news"

"Nothing gold can stay" - Ponyboy, The Outsiders [23 Apr 2005|11:07am]
[ mood | fuckk my tummy. ]

So, nothing has been exciting since I got back, to my house. I purchased a web cam, Spitalfield - Stop Doing Bad Things, and The Black Maria - Lead Us To Reason. I've been trying to be more creative and artsy latley. I've drawn/doodled more, which is scaring me, here's why:

When I draw, I just doodle, then it starts turning into something, but I don't know what it is. I think it's just my thoughts and feelings careening from pen to paper. Like the other day, I was doodling in math class, and I always think the teacher is crazy. So, I start drawing, squiggly lines, little hearts, flames, clouds, trees, spider webs, et cetera. When I finished, it turned out to be a man, crazy-looking. Spider webs as his teeth, his hair; trees poking through clouds; the heavens, his nose a long crooked arrow passing his mouth and down in front of his neck spitting out flames; the hell, his eyebrows are tree branches and they feature a man being hung. Just crazy stuff like that. This style for me, has been going on since last Halloween season when I was drawing tribal stuff and it ended up being a realistic looking heart. Anyways, if you guys want me to, I'll post pictures of my art sometimes, just ask.

Anyways, back to my life. Being artsy is starting to take action. I've D-E-C-O-R-A-T-E-D my guitar case with my sticker collection, I'm making Cassie a shirt with a stencil of a mixtape saying "I (mixtape) You", I'm starting to make other stencils of robots and shit and spray painting them onto the free stickers at the post office for your packages, and my current project is taking all the things my friends have given me over the years (photos, tickets to concerts we've went to together, letters, stickers, et cetera) and putting them into this black binder. I think this is going to be fun. Oh, and if you want to contribute to the "Magnificent-Binder-of-Ian's-Good-Friends" just tell me, and I'll save you your own little section.
