The Official Theme of the Summer is Bohemian. There will be Road Trips galore. The Official Snack of this Summer are Macaroons. The Wand has been passed on and the Responsibility has been Accepted. It's a big Wand too, lemme tell ya! LOL All Grub will be BBQ'd. All Beverages shall be Chilled. :-) All are Welcome, but no one will come back the same.
Hey! There's this fantastic gig happening tomorrow night @ the Double Clown, and if it was anywhere else I'd be there. All the Bands playing are top notch. The People's Whiskey gave me a little teaser from their upcoming release, and it's good. Really good. Should be a fun gig - Check it out if you're not doing anything else this Sat. night. Oh, I.D.F.I. and Agent 86 are playing the Bunkhouse that night too. If you're in the Downtown area you should check that gig out. Another gig you should check out happens on Sun., with the Seriouslys and the Naked City Romeos playing at Vince Neil's Girls Girls Girls strip club, and you can bet your ass that I'm gonna be there front and center! I have to be there to assert my masculinity because apparently, I'm a Homophobic Bitter Poseur! LOL
Yeah, the Irony of someone from PRB calling me a Poseur is laughable. And Bitter? Well, I guess you've never talked to Shawn Stern when he's all drunk and stupid at 4 in the morning! LOL And Homophobic? Me? ha ha ha Now that is fucking laughable. I got 2 words for you Stern Bros. - That's It!. Remember that shitty band? I do. Oh wait, here's another 3 funny words for you - Royal Crown Revue. How funny was it to see the Stern Bros. dress up and pose like some Pachuco's from the 1940's? I know me and my Punk Friends had a laugh about it, and I know they wouldn't be walking around dressed up like that in some of the East L.A. neighborhoods I grew up in! Oh, and here's the real Pièce de résistance - The Brigade. Now that shit was funny! Electronic drums? Keyboards? Really? Fuck off with that shit. You ever hear the songs Youth Brigade recorded for the album The Dividing Line? YouTube that shit and give it a listen. It's laughable. And you guys are calling me a Poseur? Pathetic. All 3 of these bands were the Stern Bros. money grubbing attempt at cashing in when Punk wasn't the cool thing it is now, and they gave numerous interviews at the time as to how they had 'grown up' and weren't playing that 'little kid music' anymore. But oh wait, when Punk rock starts to make a comeback, guess who's there to jump on the bandwagon and loudly proclaim that they were the most Punk rock band in the world and never gave up on the Scene or the Music? Yeah, that was the Stern Bros. and Youth Brigade. And the Punk Rock Sheep could care less, but that's not the point. The point is some of us have been Punk for a really long time, refusing to give up on our Ideals or Beliefs or to cater to the crowd and play New Wave, Pop Punk, Swing, whatever, and then there's the Stern Bros., who do whatever they can to make money, because let's face it - those college educations in Art and Philosophy don't pay for themselves ya know! LOL
Yeah, I can go on all day with this, but there's really no point, and I got better things to do. The comments posted on the PRB Facebook page are laughable (click here to read them all) and I can only hope and dream that some of the shit talkers on there actually follow through with their physical threats towards me. Unfortunately, they never do, which is the Magic of the Internet. Everyone is a bad ass when not within reach... heh heh The comments on the original post have been funny too (click here to read those) but at least I had a few people who agreed on a few things I mentioned about PRB. Some people get it, and some people don't. The bleating of the PC Punk Sheep is like Music to my ears. Fucking Tools. Everything is updated. See you at the Gigs.
