I really wish I could whole heartily tell you to go to this Guilty By Association album release party going down tonight, but I can't. Maybe go late and make sure to miss the opening band? I know, that is a terrible thing to say, but for tonights gig, I'm willing to put it out there because apparently that's what I do.
And it's not because of the Squidhat thing - I'm done with all that, and it's not because of that one band being on the bill, the band with the guitar playing cunt in it who likes to accuse guys of pulling their dicks out and rubbing them against her in the middle of a circle pit at the Double Clown. No, the reason I'm not going, or even promoting the gig, is because I don't wanna ruin everyone's ass kissing phoney good time. I don't wanna ruin the lie. Does that make any sense? I don't wanna be the beacon that everyone comes to and says "Man, you're right - that band does suck ass." I mean, I get that enough as it is, and since I'm not one of the clueless fan boys infatuated with her, it's easy for me to be brutally honest and call that band out on their shit, and I don't wanna do that. People don't like when I do that. Pussies. The night's not about my drama with that band, though, it's about celebrating Guilty By Association's record release, and that's why I'm staying away. They wanted them there, they can have them there. I'm anti-Drama. I got better things to do.
It's almost like whomever was in charge of putting the event together put them on the bill just to keep me away... LOL
Yeah, seeing my friends in the bands playing handing out cups of Kool-Aid on Facebook, extolling the musical genius of every band playing on that bill, talking 'bout how it's a night filled with "good friends and good music", trying to get people to drink up and see things their way and go along with the herd, was a bit too much for me. That's why I'm not going. I don't know when it became a bad thing to say that a band isn't that good, or just outright sucks, but it has, and if you're a person who has an opinion and isn't afraid to put it out there for all to see, saying that some bands are good and some bands are shite, that makes you an asshole, a bad guy.
Say 'Hello' to the bad Guy. ;-)
Congrats to Guilty By Association. I know it's been a long time coming, and you guys have worked hard and busted your ass to make this all happen. You guys are a great bunch of men, and you deserve all the accolades and words of praise you're about to receive, because we all know, you reap what you sow. ;-) Congratulations guys, congrats! I'm proud of you. XOXO
