It’s quite dated to consider text messaging a low-grade form of communication when articulation by way of smart phone has effectively become the modern day equivalent of a love letter. If he responds to your text without another question, don’t respond to his statement.
He probably just wants to watch TV and leave the non-existent buttons on his phone unpressed. Your mom leaves out vowels in her text messages, meanwhile my mom is over here sending me a million different smiley faces in each text message. The only topic I believe inappropriately averted was the essence of proper text response timing. I had a boss once who was addicted to her iphone and would insist on texting as our main form of communication.
Sometimes I think I am with the zeitgeist when it comes to communication, and other times, I think the world’s gone crazy. I would also add that it’s good to wait a few minutes to write back, if the other person is as well. As a foreigner from a middle-to-eastern European country (Poland, to be precise) I can tell ya (!): it gets only more complicated!
I’m from the netherlands and used to use lot of english phrases as well, whilst talking and whilst texting but after spending half a year abroad (where I spoke english all the time and eventually started thinking in english) I came back to the netherlands longing to speak my mothertongue again. When I was a teenager I downloaded all my text messages from my phone to my computer, and I’m glad that I did it. I don’t understand how you can smile all day long but cry yourself to sleep at night.
You’re really amazing, and one day, maybe very soon, you will find someone who really means the world to you and you will fall in love with them, and he will love you to bits. We must see things and people for how they are instead of how we hope, wish, or expect them to be. On a Thursday night in late July of 2011, I was at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival on the night before the festival was to begin.
I was at a performance area called a€?The Loungea€? in the campground high above the midway. Months later, in November, they would win a highly coveted formal showcase slot at the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA) Conference and also appear in Acoustic Livea€™s guerrilla showcase (and many others).
We conducted a recent conference call with songwriters and group leaders Ethan and Jake that would reveal the source of the brains, talent and heart of Pesky J. In his sophomore year of high school, Ethan started running a€?coffeehousesa€? out of his parentsa€™ house (with their consent). Ethan wrote a little of his own material, but focused more on learning as many Ellis Paul and Martin Sexton songs as he could, plus some acoustic versions of pop material.
From seventh grade through high school, Jake was always in the school choruses and orchestra. Jakea€™s first attempt at solo songwriting occurred as he was riding a ski chairlift and was about a girl he was dating. Jake had a checkered college career at Brandeis University, enrolling and dropping out, then re-enrolling and dropping out again.
After leaving college, Jake spent time singing a€?semi-professionallya€? with the a cappella groups Altavoz for two years and Six Appeal (later renamed Playback), also for two years.
In the spring of 1998 Jake had left Brandeis again but Spur of the Moment a€?quietlya€? kept him on until they could hold auditions.
Emerging from the heart of Red Sox Nation, the band chose its name from three Red Sox icons.
Another member joined the group when Ethan decided that he, Dan and Jake should attend the a€?Americana Ensemblea€? music classes that Boston folk club Passim runs once each week. Two years ago, Pesky played its first show at Passim with the Wea€™re About 9 duo (Brian and Katie). After 2009, the year of the near-tornado touchdown at Falcon Ridge, artistic director Anne Saunders needed to shorten the festival from four days a€” Thursday through Sunday a€” to three days a€” Friday through Sunday. Ethan credits Scott Jones as the a€?technical masterminda€? behind pulling off The Lounge stage.
Scott had heard about the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival from Ethan and Jake and decided to attend with his wife and five children, setting up camp with the Pesky J. Ethan hopes to become more involved in community action using what he calls a€?tribal mischief,a€? a formal and informal art of social engineering. On a Thursday night in late July of 2011, I was atA  the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival on the night before the festival was to begin.
Jake had a checkered college career at Brandeis University, enrollingA  and dropping out, then re-enrolling and dropping out again.

This one is rather usual considering the character restraint in #1 but according to another friend, restricting the use of acronyms in early messages may help catapult later messages. You can send a nipple and you can send your face, but you can never send them in the same message. Your text message is not a social media tool and as such, the journalistic rule of thumb remains in tact and mandates that you get but three exclamation points over the course of your career (budding romance). Finally, be weary of text-message bombing (which is considerably different than photo bombing). In fulfilling the guidelines of this monologue, you break almost every rule in some capacity, display your inability to countdown (eight and a half comes before eight,) and perhaps most dangerously: allude to emotional illness. I’m also married, though, which implies that occasionally, being who you are is rather endearing.


I’ve probably broken each and every one of these rules, during both long and very, VERY, short term relationships. Can we get a post about how to go about at least attempting a normal phone conversation without dramatic pauses that leave the person on the other end wondering if you have, in fact, died? Am I weird to think that texting can convey so much that gets lost in awkward phone conversations?
Some people (me included) use English phrases while texting sometimes, like: miss you, wtf, and so on. I had a good laugh at some of them and cringed thinking that people actually do some of these. I love the feeling you get when you’re around someone you have feelings for, I love how happy it makes me, I love being able to have someone to talk to at all times, having someone make you smile and laugh. Because one day, you might wake up from your sleep and realize that you lost the moon while counting the stars. Onstage, performers ecstatically sang songs round-robin, as much for each other as for the 450 festival-goers in front of them. It was the second year it was being held, but I had no idea what Ia€™d find after picking my way up the hill in the dark. A song from that CD, a€?Breathe in Autumn,a€? was a haunting reverie, with layers of harmonies and soaring instrumentation that echoed in the mind far past its last notes. In his sophomore year of high school, he started his own a cappella group that he named a€?Swingtown.a€? That continued until he graduated in 1998.
His early experience with music included piano instruction when he was 5, with a a€?severe teachera€? not unlike Miss Havisham in Dickensa€™ Great Expectations. He went over the verses and chorus in his head all day as he went up and down the mountain.
His primary focus was singing with the universitya€™s a cappella group, Spur of the Moment.
Not a student, he was technically not allowed to be a member of the group, but he was too valuable to let go, so they kept him on. Nixon has been working with a non-profit called the SAMFund, a foundation that raises money for young adult cancer survivors to help them pay their post-treatment bills.
Seeking to meet other musicians, Anthony da Costa, Abbie Gardner and, coincidentally, Chris Oa€™Brien, whose CD Ethan had produced, came upon the Pesky campsite. A former radio DJ with an engineering background, Scott was the startled next-door neighbor of Ethana€™s parents when Ethan brought the a cappella singers home (he was deathly afraid hea€™d moved next to a frat house). Nixon album, named Red Ducks (a€?reduxa€?), is a collection of songs of the musicians that the band has performed with and been influenced by over the last four years, featuring songs by artists such as Anthony da Costa, Gillian Welch and Tom Waits. According to the author of this quote, (her name is Amelia and she loves horses in the literal sense not to the large genital sense,) in the first phases of conversation, shorter is always sweeter. This suggestion comes from a friend of mine who has more or less been out of the dating game a full decade.
Now, are there any specific do’s and don’ts not listed here that you subscribe to?
Between not re-reading and not giving a shit, you couldn’t understand anything that she said. And it is usually something along a quotation, we are pretending to be Americans, we watch English-language TV shows in the original, oh aren’t we cool! How your best friend can become your worst enemy, or how strange it is when your worst enemy turns into your best friend. There was a€?nothing much to do except listen to music on the stereo.a€? He listened to Dylan, The Beatlesa€™ Sergeant Peppera€™s Lonely Hearts Club Band, The Best of Gordon Lightfoot and Harry Chapina€™s Gold album.
Also during that time, he heard a live folk act for the first time at the Me and Thee Coffeehouse in Marblehead, Mass.
By the end of high school, there were 70 to 80 in attendance and performances went on from 5:30 until midnight. Hea€™d left the first time, worked odd jobs back home, then went back for a year and then dropped out again. In the fall of a€™98, he didna€™t have a vote, but was asked to give his opinion during auditions. As Ethan described her, a€?She had a wry and sarcastic sense of humor and, at the same time, she was a fierce member of the songwriting community in western Massachusetts.a€? He continued, a€?I started volunteering as sound guy at the open mics and the two of us became close friends.
The child of a bassist father and drummer mother, Dan studied bass and drums for almost 10 years before focusing his attention on percussion when he reached college.
Ethan talked Eric into joining them in the studio while recording Monkey Business & Mislaid Hopes, then got him to join the band. From that point forward, Pesky received a lot of airplay for Monkey Business from Bostona€™s premier folk radio station, WUMB-FM, raising its profile even higher. The album is a stripped-down living room recording offering a more intimate sound than Monkey Business & Mislaid Hopes while maintaining the same energy and humor.
There was a€?nothing much to do except listen to music on the stereo.a€? HeA  listened to Dylan, The Beatlesa€™ Sergeant Peppera€™s Lonely Hearts Club Band, The Best of Gordon Lightfoot and Harry Chapina€™s Gold album. You can thoughtfully consider what will go into crafting the perfect message and in some instances, wholly create that immaculate vision. She suggests that even though she does not agree with the following dramatization, it is likely a fantastic way to disengage the other end of your message. This is probs due to the fact that I actually use these in my everyday vocab, as in I dont just type and read them, I say them as well.
As I approached the end of a long line of cars and tents, high up on the ridge, my jaw dropped as I saw the floodlights and a stage equipped with microphones, amplified instruments and a soundboard, all run by a generator. Pesky was scheduled to play the festivala€™s Emerging Artists Showcase the next day and Ia€™d invited them to Acoustic Livea€™s unplugged showcases at our booth on Saturday afternoon. As luck would have it, he was seeing Ellis Paul, a songwriter capable of a high level of sophistication and a€?telling a story within a story.a€? It made a huge impact on what Ethan would expect from his own abilities. Talking about his parents, he said, a€?God bless them, I have no idea why they allowed me to do these things. He cana€™t quite recall, but thinks he mighta€™ve gotten rapped on the knuckles with a ruler if his hands werena€™t positioned correctly. He said he a€?wasna€™t mentally prepared for college.a€? Oddly, his chosen major was psychology. She was the kind of songwriter who would write two fantastic songs a week and she just intimidated the heck out of me, but at the same time she was remarkably warm and nurturing when it came to helping folks bring out the songwriters in themselves.
At the University of Pennsylvania, he sang with the Jewish a cappella group Ra€™nanah and performed Gilbert and Sullivan musicals with theA Penn Singers.


Back home, they were playing one show every four to five months at small cafes, just for the sake of having a gig. As soon as he heard their a cappella-honed harmonies, he said, a€?Let me introduce you around.a€? He then took them to meet all the key personalities in the campground. When they decided to create The Lounge stage, Ethan and Scott pooled their equipment, the bulk of it coming from Scott. They force uncomfortable conversational fodder and an inevitable dialogue about the weather.
You are definitely not rolling on the floor and your ass has definitely not dispatched from your body due to my highly advanced sense of hilarity. Besides the physical benefits, there’s nothing greater about having a serious boyfriend than being able to rest all doubt on whether my next text will be the breaking point on our relationship. While it is ok with friends and such, its gets really difficult to read while a flirt goes on. Toward the rear, on the outskirts of the audience, performers swarmed everywhere either waiting to go on or socializing in respectful, hushed tones. It produced a small, insular group of people who were really interested in learning about this stuff.a€? Ethana€™s at-home a€?coffeehousesa€? foreshadowed the type of gatherings that Pesky J. He wanted to quit after six months, but his mom convinced him to try studying with another teacher who had just moved to town and whose reputation included the term a€?wonderful.a€? She must have been, since Jake studied with her for the next 10 years.
Recently he found an old notebook in the bench of the familya€™s piano in which hea€™d written songs during his teen years. On the second day of his freshman year, Ethan auditioned for Spur of the Moment and easily made the group. She kind of battered me into playing the open mic and after a while I started sneaking originals in when I thought no one was paying attention, but she could always tell. In his first studio experience, he provided percussion on a project with pop singer John Legend. Sometimes my ear will begin to hurt and when that happens I will have to surmise that I have probably contracted brain cancer. No matter what you think you have to say, how witty, charming, convivial it will be, there’s always tomorrow morning (and a pretty profound headache) to make up for short term radio silence. If he uses an English ‘miss you’ instead our own native language, does it mean he means it less? They also got to meet Brian Gundersdorf, Katie Graybeal and Pat Klink of Wea€™re About 9, who came over to their campsite the next night.
I believe us non-english speakers need to get creative with our own languages before we forget just how rich they are! How the people who once wanted to spend every second with you, think a few minutes of their time is too much to spare. Ethana€™s major in college was English Literature and Music Composition but, as Ethan explains it, his parents told him that his major was actually a€?a cappella.a€? There were enormous chunks of time spent practicing and the groupa€™s performances were frequent (three to four practices a week for three hours each and 15 performances per semester).
Our plaster monkey butler Newman, that is in most of our press shots and the monkey of Monkey Business & Mislaid Hopes, is something I inherited from her. Ironically, it was Wea€™re About 9 that Ethan had pointed out as a model for Pesky when it formed a€” a€?Therea€™s this trio that writes great songs and sings great harmony.a€? a€” Ethan recalled saying a€¦ and here they were, soon to become their cohorts in a burgeoning career. Do not hate because someone broke your heart, or because your parents split up or your best friend betrayed you. I had just gotten a big, warm introduction to the technical and community organizing skills of the group known as Pesky J.
The group had to organize and arrange their own music and put out one CD every year (all self-funded).
The day after she passed away she was published in Glamour magazinea€™s annual non-fiction writing contest [a heart-wrenching story of her battle with cancer]. During the following year, Pesky shared gigs with Anthony and Wea€™re About 9, doing four to five shows. Two simple words in damn English, not even a sentence, and I go off overthinking for an hour!
Ethan took charge here, moving all 20 singers in the group into his parentsa€™ house to record in his home studio.
As a cornerstone founding member of the group, Dan runs counter to the stereotypical view of drummers. So: I am quite tolerant when it comes to texting, yes, I even learned to like the ?? or xD, you can use caps lock on me all you want. Hea€™s their most organized member, keeping track of important logistics for practice and gigs.
