I had this conversation with The Captain on the 4th of July about some Facebook drama between him and I concerning why I deleted him as a Friend on there. I told him it was because of my crazy ex and it seemed like he kind of understood. I know his wife Tess certainly did. ;-) So, in casual passing, Jesse mentions that he's now contributing his photos to that Local Beardcore Emo website, and I laugh in his face and call him a Joto. He comes back with, 'Well, you never wanted my stuff. I told you you could use anything I shoot and not to worry about it.' Well, the problem with that is that he rarely gave me his stuff to post up on here, and the stuff he wanted me to use was already posted up to his Myspace or Facebook page. Why double post, ya know? I used to Link to the stuff he posted on my website but stopped because it seemed silly. Matter of fact, now that I think about it, I'm still waiting for those pictures he took from the Aluminum Falcon debut gig @ the LVCS from like 3 years ago! LOL I bugged him for those pictures for months, and finally just got tired of asking him about them. Whatever. The point I'm trying to get to is that anybody that wants to can have stuff posted on here. It's not a big deal. You just gotta be passionate and real about it - no ass kissing 'Everything is great' fluff pieces just to get you free tickets into the HOB like that other website does. No, if a band fucks up, or plays a shitty set, then call it as you see it. Don't turn a blind eye to it. Don't be a pussy and say everything was great. Bands shouldn't get butt hurt because someone gave an honest opinion of their performance. Fuck that shit. That's not how I do things around here. You should be grateful anyone was even paying attention to you playing and that they made the effort to even talk about, Positively or Negatively. And with all that, I present to you Dean from American Buckshot's Show Review of that little Pro Party gig @ Money Plays that went down this past Sat. You can click here to read it, or just go to the Show Reviews tab at the top of the page. It came out really good and hopefully I can get more stuff out of him in the future. Now if I could only say that about Bob... heh heh heh Everything is updated! Shit load of Gigs added to the Gig Calendar page. Don't forget about that Valient Thorr / Deadhand gig going down tonight @ the LVCS. I'm racing there right after practice tonight. Deadhand - don't start until I get there!! :-)
