I really don't feel like writing much of anything anymore.
I'm content to do what it is I'm doing; watching Raiders games, drinking Halloween themed drinks at bars here in town, playing video games (gawd damn Simpsons game), not practicing with any bands (S.F.T.! ha ha ha ha), hanging out with my girlfriend, going to gigs in real venues with bathrooms and booze, becoming even more of a Foodie than I already am, planning trips out of state and then not going through with them (The Mummies gig in CA. - FUCK!!), put-putting around my house, or just sleeping my Life away. Everything going on Locally in the music scene bores me to tears, and I'm almost to the point of embarrassment with everyone fawning over these Beardcore gigs going down at living rooms and houses all across the valley. Is this what it has come down to? A bunch of 40 something men mingling with teenage 20-something boys at houses and backyards full of underage kids and booze? Lame. Oh, and you guys with your "super secret" warehouse gigs - blow me. Did we not learn anything from The Artistic Armory debacle? Has that place opened up yet? Is it opening anytime soon? Anyone know what happened with that place? ha ha ha Yeah, your elitist attitudes just keeps things fragmented and cliquey. I hope you choke on it. I think the reason why you bands play these house gigs and warehouse gigs is because you can't get anyone over the age of 21 to come to see your shitty band play anywhere else, much less pay to see your band play at a real venue with real established bands, because that would mean your core audience of 'Fans' wouldn't be able to drink their Steel Reserve and smoke their blunts like real gangsters do before they check out the bands, and we all know it's no fun playing to a bunch of 'lame old men' who don't slam. News flash: there's nothing easier than making a bunch of drunken kids slam and jump around. Seriously. It's cool and all but nothing to get hyped about, or to alienate you core of fans over - just ask Three Rounds about that shit... LOL Yeah, the SquidHat Records Curse continues unabated, and I for one couldn't care less. Those bands deserve everything that's coming to them. Meh. I'm going back to work on the website. Rant over.
