Gosh... I hate to say I told you so. I really hate to tell you that I was right...
Who am I kidding? I love to be the one to point out the egg on peoples faces. I love to see things go wrong as I (and a lot of other people) thought that they would. And you can put any spin on it that you want to, but if you were there or if, Heaven forbid, you were one of the bands that played that Punk Cock Dicklic farce, well then your collective assholes should be pretty sore right about now, because you all got fucked. Royally. And publicly, come to think about it. You proudly supported and played a festival where White Power fuckheads were free to roam around unharmed, as well as allowed to have a booth selling their Nazi jingoist swag propaganda unabated. Aren't you special? I'm all for Freedom of Speech and all that, but a line's gotta be drawn somewhere... I think. Didn't we learn anything from that classic Dead Kenendys song Nazi Punks Fuck Off? Guess not. Nobody involved with PRP got paid - workers, stage crew, Security, bands, etc., but hey - you had a good time, right? Didn't you? Hope so. Hope it was worth it. From where I'm standing, it wasn't. Not by a long shot. Some of the bands that played PRP I've lost a lot of Respect for, some of the bands that played it only showed me what mindless Poseurs they really are...
But all of this California Drama PALES in comparison to what's going on here Locally. Oh Mah GAWD what an absolute joy it has been to just sit back and watch all the BS and Vegas Drama go down on the Facebook public forums pages, pages with stupid names and even stupider members and Moderators, all involving so-called "Punk" bands and people that I despise or want no part of. It's like i have x-ray vision or something. I mean, I can only tell you so many times that there is a reason why I don't play gigs with certain bands and why I don't associate with certain people, and a few understand why, most don't, and that's fine, but when it blows up in your face, and you see what I tried to warn you about, you finally see what that Drama was that I was talking about, when you finally get burned by them, either musically or monetarily or personally, don't expect me to feel sorry for you, because I won't. I tried to warn you, but you didn't listen. You can't say you weren't ever told though...
