I had this glowing CD review written up about this new Local band, who feature a Friend of mine, and while looking up who the other members are, I thought that I saw that one of them was a member of a band that I can't stand, a band that I don't support in any way, shape and form, and a band who's members I will not support in any project that they're a part of. Morals? Beliefs? Values? Standards? Me? Yeah, I know. Shocks me too sometimes, but some things will never be forgotten. God Forgives. I don't. So I asked my Friend is it was the same person, and he confirmed that it was, and I reluctantly had to tell him I couldn't support his band. He asked why, and I told him, and he told me to stop being a Fag about it, but I didn't relent in the least bit, and after a while he said he respected my decision and we left it at that. No harsh words, no antipathy, nothing. Imagine that. And, as if to rub salt into my wounds, my Friend told me that their songs sound even better live. Fuck. Sometimes it's hard sticking to your guns. Sometimes. ;-)
I got this letter a while back, but just decided to post it up right now.

Subject: SPORTS SUCK!!!!
HEY ASSHOLE!! QUIT TALKING ABOUT SPORTS. SPORTS SUCK!!!! JOCKS SUCK MY PUNK ROCK DICK!!! GO BACK TO TALKING SHIT ABOUT SHITTY BANDS LIKE YOU USED TO. SPORTS ARENT PUNK!!! SPORTS IS BORING. FUCK YOU!!!!!
I'm guessing by all over usage of exclamation points that "They mean it, maaaaaaaan!" LOL Look, I get this all the time, every time, same time every year. I adore pontificating on my beloved San Jose Sharks and Oakland Raiders, and if you don't like it go read punksinvegas or something. The sports talk here only stops when my Teams aren't playing! And on that note:
For those of you who give a shit about PRB, Killing Joke has cancelled their Tour and will not be playing their Monday slot at PRB. Agnostic Front will be filling in for them, but save yourself the trouble and just go see them @ the Cheyenne Saloon when they play there in September. And speaking of bands not playing, Instinct Of Survival were denied entrance by the Dept. of Homeland Security into the U.S.A., based on their smelly dreads and lengthy criminal records. That sucks! I was looking forward to their gig next week @ Yayo Taco. Booooooooooo
It was 10 years ago today that we lost The Man, The Myth, The Legend, that will forever be known as Ronnie James Dio. \m/(*_*)\m/ Booooooooooooo. Such a cool little guy. The Voice may be gone but it will be heard forever and never, ever forgotten.
