I’m at the studio. I’m bored and I don’t do this shit too often anymore. Ask me some shit. http://formspring.me/CarterSeaton
Lemme tell you about my life right now… I’m sitting in at Burning Bridge Recordings (which is Joel’s home), drinking beers, working with two people I have much respect for, and recording the Stone Throats full length. We’re staying at the Marriott downtown in Nashville that Brett’s dad paid for. And I’m seeing Converge and Trap Them on Saturday. And when I...

Joel: Hey, if I got some beer, would you want some?
Joel: You wanna come?
Joel: Here, take this...
(Hands me a coozie that says "Boobies Make Me Smile" and grabs a coozie for himself)
Me: I know passengers are allowed to drink in cars, but are the drivers?
Joel: No, but I like to break the law.

I type this as we’re on our way to Nashville to record the new Stone Throats full length. Jake and Brett asked me what the new record was about lyrically and I had to sit and think about it because I wasn’t sure. After reading through the lyrics, I came to the conclusion that the record revolves around a hatred and fear of being alone. For example, the first track on the record is...
Last night, my long time band Rumor Has It changed our name to “STONE THROATS.” I’ve been in a band performing under the name Rumor Has It since 2006. The decision was a hard one for me to make, but it was necessary. The current version of Rumor Has It wasn’t the same band anymore. I was the only original member and the style of music has changed drastically throughout...
Tonight, I’m putting on a show at The Dojo with Xerxes (No Sleep Records), Rumor Has It, Pessoa and Swan. I’m kinda nervous about the show. I really hope it goes well. This is my first time booking a national signed touring band. I personally can’t afford for this show not to go well. I’ve been texting a bunch of my friends all day trying to make sure they’re...
That’s when you know you’ve found somebody really special…...– Uma Thurman (Pulp Fiction)
Tomorrow you may bring about the destruction of your world. Tomorrow you may...– Henry Miller, 1938
I haven’t felt like myself in a few months and I haven’t felt genuinely happy in a few months. I’ve had moments here and there where I’ve felt good but I haven’t been happy with the way things are with me for a few months now. I have felt like total shit the past few weeks. I’m not eating much. I’m not sleeping much. I’m drinking more. I am the...
I hate fighting so hard to hold back my tears.
I feel like I am turning into a bitter old fuck who hates everything.
This is gonna sound super lame, but I just watched Forgetting Sarah Marshall and it made me realize that things aren’t as bad as they could be. I’m still feeling heartbroken, but I’m just glad this situation isn’t worse. I’m sure that I’ll get pretty upset about the situation again eventually. In other news, I read a review of the Four Year Strong show that...
I’m a fucking mess and a wreck. Its no fun waking up in tears. Its fucked up how you can put all of your trust into somebody because it can backfire on you.
The opening scene to American Psycho
Bryce: God, I hate this place. Its a chicks' restaurant. Why aren't we at Dorsia?
McDermott: Because Bateman won't give the maitre d' head. Is that Reed Robinson?
Bryce: Are you freebasing? That's not Robinson.
McDermott: Well, who is it then?
Bryce: It's Paul Allen.
Bateman: That's not Paul Allen. Paul Allen's on the other side of the room. Over there.
Bryce: Who's he with?
McDermott: Some weasel from Kicker Peabody.
McDufus: They don't have a good bathroom to do coke in.
McDufus: Are you sure that's Paul Allen?
Bryce: Yes, McDufus, I am. He's handling the Fisher account. Lucky Bastard
McDermott: Lucky Jew Bastard.
Bateman: Jesus, McDermott, what does that have to do with anything?
McDermott: I've seen that bastard sitting in his office, talking on the phone to the CEO spinning a fuckin' menorah.
Bateman: Not a menorah. You spin a dreidel.
McDermott: Oh my God, Bateman. You want me to fry you up some fuckin' potato pancakes? Some latkes?
Bateman: No, just cool it with the anti-Semitic remarks.
McDermott: Oh, I'd forgotten. Bateman's dating someone from the ACLU.
Bryce: He's the voice of reason. The boy next door.
(As they are handed the check)
McDufus: Speaking or reasonable. Only $570. Not bad.
Sometimes, I wish I didn’t have feelings. That way, when someone hurt me, it wouldn’t matter. I sometimes wish that I had no feelings for anyone. I wish I didn’t care about anything. But that’s just not how things work for me. People joke around about me being remorseless and Satanic. I’m neither. Even sometimes, I’ll joke about it. But that’s just...
