A Million Miles Book Teaser →

Hi there, poster friends. So usually I make posters with quotes on them. Sometimes they’re lyrics, and sometimes they’re famous sayings that I change to fit my mood. But, as of late, I have switched gears quite a bit. And when I say ‘quite a bit’ I mean a whole lot. I’ve gone from writing 15 word posters to writing a 60,000 some-odd word book. Here’s a little teaser trailer about me and the book, and stay tuned for more info if you feel so inclined. The book lives here: http://www.amillionmilesbook.com or you can LIKE the book on facebook here: http://www.facebook.com/amillionmiles

This quote says it all. I’m just not sure how to feel when I have nothing and everything at the same time. Also, I think I have a thing against mangling unknown quotes. I feel like they’re more sacred somehow.

Are you ready for your next favorite band? If you haven’t listened to “Cardiac Arrest” ten thousand times like the rest of the world WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? I saw the Bad Suns last Friday and they’re ready to take on the world. Get ready, it’s coming…

Manchester Orchestra’s record, COPE, is killing me on daily basis. This song and the title track are my favorite.

Bukowski was so fucking wrong, and this quote desperately needed to be fixed. I am tired of this ‘work for work’s’ sake mentality. You know what’s fun about working all the time? Nothing. Also, no one cares. The creative class needs to wake up and smell the future heart attacks, because they’re not to far off. Just because you love something, that doesn’t mean you should be obsessed with it.

MY GOD, this quote just kills me. There was nothing to change or mangle, just enjoy it as is. For everyone out there that’s in the same boat or even a different ocean, hold fast.

If you don’t know this band, you should. The current emo revival (or whatever the hell it is) wouldn’t exist without bands like this breaking the rules and saying FUCK IT to almost everything. They wrote their own ticket, and I’ll always love them for it.

Prepare yourselves…

Friends, I have some exciting news. In a few short days my last name will no longer be FLEISHER. While the most exciting day of my life is ahead of me, some small part of me is wondering what will become of FLEISHER QUOTES? Should I still call this blog Fleisher Quotes, even though I’m not Fleisher anymore? I don’t think so. So, I’ve decided, in the interest of internet harmony that I am going to officially rename this blog (or whatever this project really is) “Mangled Quotes”. Even though I only sometimes mangle quotes (the other times I just make lyric posters) it seems fitting. Also, no one could ever really remember Fleisher, let alone spell or pronounce it right. So don’t be scared when you see my former surname absent from my future work, it’s still me, I’m still here. 

Also, I was in the shower this morning (man, this post is getting personal) and an old Piebald song popped into my head. And it made me think, MAN, I tried to sign Piebald like three times. So for shits and giggles, I’ve decided to do a series of bands that got away, aka, bands I tried to sign but it didn’t happen. I’m happy to start with Piebald, despite us working together never working out, we were always friends and always had the best time together. 

Cheers, friends. 

- Amy (soon to no longer be…) Fleisher
