Hey everyone. This will most likely be my last post on here,  for I have switched over to Xanga, simply because most of my friends have that and don't have LiveJournal, so there is more people to read my stuff. If you have Xanga, you are more than welcome to read my crap here. Well LiveJournal, we had some good times, but It's time to move on.... Hahaha OK I'm done. So long LJ friends...

Good times, LiveJournal, good times...

I came across this today and it has to be just about the funniest thing I have ever seen.

In an online chat at ESPN.com in 2003...

Will (Richfield, MN): Hey Denny, what is your favorite Billy Idol song?

Denny Hocking: My favorite Billy Idol song is Rebel Yell because I'm such a rebel.

As a side note, Denny Hocking made his triumphant return to the bigs on Sunday, going 1-2 with a single.

Enigma Sucks [Jul. 25th, 2005|02:35 pm]

[music |"From The Mouth of Gath" by The Showdown]

Hello everyone. Well we had a show a few nights ago at the Enigma in Shakopee. It sucked. To start off, barely anyone came, so we were working with a small crowd to begin with. We elected to open, so we went up and did our thing. The sound person was by far the dumbest person to ever walk the face of the Earth. The whole band was quiet and nobody could hear anybody. My guitar was pretty much silent the whole time Nathan kept looking at me and telling me turn up, but there was nothing I could do. It all came down to the anti-climactic ending with Murder That Saves. We were all mad by then and just wanted to get it done with. During the ending of the song, I was so mad I just threw my guitar on the ground and walked off stage before the song was even over. The whole thing just sucked. On the bright side, we are playing tomorrow at the LOUDER Music Festival in Northfield, which should be really fun. Well see everyone later.

[music |Baseball Tonight]

Hello everyone. I got back from my Illinois trip earlier today. It was AWESOME. On Friday I went to the Cubs game at Wrigley Field. It was so amazing. Outdoor baseball is so much better than indoor. We need a new stadium badly. Well anyways, it was a good game. Jeromy Burnitz appeared to tie the game late with a 2-run homer but it was called back. The Cubbies lost but it was still an enjoyable day at the park. It's so much different than Twins games. At the Twins games there are like 5 people that actually get into the game, but at Wrigley everyone is crazy and loud. It's so awesome. I will try to get pictures up soon. Saturday was Cornerstone. Think Sonshine only 100x better. Unfortunately due to recent trends, over half the bands there were crappy screamo bands, and that got really annoying. I was watching a local band, The Assignment, and a bunch of stupid scene kids came by and booed and stuff. The guitarist goes up to the mic and says "I apologize for not being like every other band that's here". It was great. All afternoon I just walked around checking out bands here and there and I heard some good ones. Anberlin came on at 7:30 and they were awesome. A bunch of fans ran on the runway that extended from the stage and broke it. It was funny. After them, it was Relient K, whom I have seen many times before, and every time I see them they get progressively more boring. They don't play much of their old stuff any more, just their new made-for-radio stuff that gets old quickly. But nevertheless, I still enjoyed them. Switchfoot was next. Let me just say they are probably one of the worst live bands of all time. I like their CD but all the effects and stuff they add in-studio does not transfer will to a live show. I left their show early to get to the stage Project 86 was playing at. As I was walking there, I look over and I see a guy walking and he looks at me and says "hey". I give him a nod back. I kept walking and then when I got into the light I looked and it was Andrew from Project 86. It was pretty cool. And then as I was waiting for the show to start, I looked over and there was the lead singer of Children 18:3 standing right next to me. So I talked to him for a few mintutes. Randy, Steve, and some fill-in drummer for P86 came out and did a sound check. Their regular drummer must not like me or something because every time I've seen them, it has been a fill-in drummer. Hmm. Project 86 lent a but of their stage time to poet Bradley Hathaway, which was really cool. I had heard some of his stuff before and it was really awesome to see him live. He did a few of his poems and then Project 86 hit the stage a little after midnight for one crazy show. They started of by playing alot of their old songs from their first few albums, which made us Project diehards very happy. They also played a few songs from their forthcoming album and they sound really good. It's going to be a great album. About halfway through their set they played "Hollow Again" my all-time favorite P86 song, and one they rarely play live. I was so happy and I just went crazy. I got punched in the face during the chorus of "PS" and that stung quite a bit. Since they were the last show of the night, they could go as long as they wanted and they played for about an hour and a half. They ended the night with "Stein's Theme" as usual and I walked out sweaty, sore, and covered in dirt and dust. It was the greatest concert I had ever been to. I can't wait for Sonshine. Then there was the 8 hour drive home, which sucked. Well anyways, all in all the trip was a good one and I want to go back to Cornerstone again next year. Later.

[music |"Send Your Regrets" by Living Sacrifice]

Hello everyone. Living Sacrifice has got to be the greatest metal band ever. Well almost anyways. My summer has been so boring. I spent most of today either A) sleeping or B) playing Zelda. Sad. Well at least I leave for Chicago on Thursday. The Cubbies game is on Friday and then Cornerstone on Saturday. Bands playing in the afternoon are Mourning September, Number One Gun, Day Of Fire, and Roper. The lineup for the evening is Anberlin, Relient K, Switchfoot, followed by Project 86 (my all-time favorite band) at midnight. It's going to be a heck of a night. LESS THAN THREE WEEKS UNTIL SONSHINE!!! It's going to be so awesome this year even though the lineup of bands isn't quite as good as in previous years. Children 18:3 won the Club 3 degrees band tournament will be playing on the main stage!! They are so good. Unfortunately, we won't be playing because we don't have the will to haul all of our equipment up to Willmar. It's going to be loads of fun anyways. Well, see you all later.

[music |Nothing]

I went to the Twins game today. They pretty much suck again. Joe Mays is the most worthless piece of crap to ever walk the face of the Earth. Well, I leave for Chicago in a week. At least I get to go to Wrigley and see a team that doesn't suck (the Washington Nationals, not the Cubs, they suck too). Well I'm tired and am going to go to bed now.

TWINS!! [Jun. 8th, 2005|11:58 pm]

[music |"Soma" by Project 86]

Hello everyone. Well the Twins are pretty awesome. I start complaining that they can't hit and then they go out and score 29 runs in the last 3 games. Nice job. And this week, Glenn Williams was called up from AAA Rochester, joining Luis Rodriguez and Brent Abernathy as Twins players no one has ever heard of. Well I was watching the Twins game today and couldn't help but notice this:

Is it just me or does Arizona shortstop Royce Clayton look like Jar Jar Binks?


Anyways, summer is going fairly well. Kind of boring, but good for the most part. I'm FINALLY getting my license on the 21st!! Woo!!! Well anyways I will see you all later.

Summer... [Jun. 2nd, 2005|03:55 pm]

[music |"Smokin'" by Boston]

Hello everyone. School is finally done. It's going to be alot of fun this summer, but I am really going to miss seeing everybody on a regular basis. Jeremy and I have gone fishing three of the past four days and it's been fun. I got nothing today but Monday and Wednesday were pretty good. This July I'm going to Illinois for the Cornerstone Music Festival and then go see a Cubs game. The original plan was to go to Boston, but my mom and sister managed to screw that one over. My dad said he'd take me next summer though. A few weeks after Illiois is the Sonshine Music Festival, which I'm pretty excited for. It's always pretty fun. Other than that my summer is probably going to be pretty uneventful. A few shows with the band here and there, but other than that: nothing. At least I don't have to go to summer school this year. That sucked. Well anyways I'll be seeing you all around sometime. Have a great summer!

[music |"Your Heroes Are Dead" by Project 86]

Hello everyone. STAR WARS III IS SOOOOOOOOO GOOD!! I saw it at midnight the day it came out and I still can't get over how awesome it is. Well anyways we had practice today and it went really well. We played for a solid six hours and we have a really good song in the works. It's ten times better than anything we've written so far. It's basically a six or seven minute rock ballad with a two minute instrumental. It's really awesome. Those of you who come to our next show will be amazed. Speaking of that, our June 10th show has been cancelled because The Jave Joint pretty much screwed us over. Oh well. We have two dates at The Enigma (July 23rd and August 19th) and a date in Rosemount on July 29th. We will be scheduling a few more very soon. We will probably be doing an all-acoustic show at our church sometime next month. That should be really fun. Well I must be going. Later.
