Today is the beginning of National Suicide Prevention week, to take part in this reach out to someone who is struggling, know the signs of someone who is suicidal or If you haven’t talked to a family member lately, if you’re thinking of them, or even if you saw them yesterday call them today just to let them know you love them. If it seems like they’re struggling offer them support, or take them to get help. They’ll thank you later. If you’re struggling my phone is on and my inbox is open: message me, call me, or if you need to be anonymous call a hotline.
This is my uncle. He committed suicide on June 28, 2012.
One of the hardest things I’ve ever done was going to my mom the day after her birthday and telling her that her older brother was gone. Then the next day, driving to my grandma’s house in Orange County and waiting for her to get home from vacation to tell her that her only son, her first born child was dead by his own hand. He left behind both his parents 7 children, 3 nieces, 1 nephew, and 2 sisters.
The two day drive from California to Idaho was the longest I’ve ever taken, my gram and mom wouldn’t stop crying. They felt guilt over not having seen him in over 10 years. My mom and he had fallen out over his second ex-wife. And he and my gram had just started talking again after many years of not speaking. There were so many things that were left unsaid between them.
If you’re feeling down, like you’re at the end of your rope: I just want to let you know that there are people, even people that you haven’t spoken to in a long while who love you, and think about you often, and who would be devastated— absolutely crushed by your permanent absence from their life.
So, like I said earlier; call your family, call your friends. Let them know that you miss them or if you’re the one feeling lost, that you need them.
As much as I love Shaun, I actually find it really irritating that in the interviews from lollapalooza, the interviewers only speak to Shaun and completely ignore Davis. I mean Davis is actually really funny and cool. They should talk to him too.
I’d really like someone to talk to Jared :)
He had one line…

The Bad Things are going to be playing at Jubilee Music and Arts Festival on june 8th in downtown LA :)
When I go on the Shaun White tracker-tag from the drop-down and see multiple new posts when he’s not competing my stomach drops because I think something horrible has happened. Like he’s been arrested again or something— there’s always that moment of hesitation now.
Oh dear god what have I done…
i saw it coming
BUT STILL IM CRYING
who did this
I’m not even going to pretend that this isn’t the most amusing thing I’ve heard in a long time.
Anonymous asked: Lead singer of Bad Things is Davis LeDuke (formerly of Billy Boy on Poison). Drummer is Lena Zawaideh.
Sweet! Thanks so much for the information! :)
I’ll pass it along if anyone else is interested :)
@BADTHINGS <—insta for their band, apparently Jared Palomar (the bassist from Augustana, who also has some electronic music that’s pretty good) is in it too, I *think* the drummer is named Lena but I don’t know her last name or the name of the guy on keyboards… Their FB page says that they are on Warner Bros. Records
Badthings.net is the website (its got nothing on it) they’re also on FB.
