Where do I begin? At the beginning, of course...
I remember once having a conversation with my (then) Web Sensei Miss Roxie, and she mentioned something about how my website was like The National Enquirer of the Las Vegas punk scene, and we laughed and grabbed another beer and moved on. This whole Joe Perv thing that's going on has me thinking about that particular incident. Look, the "beauty" of this website is the anonymity factor involved. Anybody can go on that Tag Board to the left of these words and say WHATEVER the fuck they want to say. Many's the time I've gotten emails and phone calls begging me to take stuff off of there (you people know who you are), or yelling at me, saying things like how could I let that be put up there, or how come I didn't delete it, stuff like that. I'm not Big Brother. I'm not the Censor Police. Don't come on here and say little things like your band sucks, or say I saw so and so down on Fremont sucking cock for crack, or so and so's a faggot or stuff like that, and then get all butt hurt when someone does it back to you. That's not fair. Play nicely or don't play at all. We all pretty much know each other in real life. We can all laugh about what goes on here, right? Hope so.
Now to address the Joe Perv situation. Look. I know the guy. I think we're about the same age. He does his thing, I do mine. If somebody else has a problem with him, that's between him and them. If Joe Perv has a problem with me, he knows who I am, and he knows what I look like. Talk to me anytime guy. If that really was Dylan Perv who posted that on the Tag Board (what's up dude?), I think he summed it up a Hell of a lot better than I ever could. Joe Perv's band reeks of desperation. And, just so you all know, The Objex won't be playing The Exploited gig. Here is the reason why. They were acting like Rockstars and Brian Saliba told them to take a hike. There's some more dirt for ya, the best paparazzi a growing band could have. Enjoy. My information comes straight from the source, but spin it any way you see fit. It's all fun and games until someone gets butt hurt, right? Anyways, Guilty By Association will be taking The Objex place on the bill. Who wants to bet me on how many D.I. covers Guilty By Association are gonna play. I say 2...hee hee hee
Speaking of D.I., here's the Show Review of the gig. Pictures can be found to the right. I think it's a bit of a dry read, but it wasn't a good day for me, and to try to tell you I was hyped on things afterwords would be an exercise in futility, so I don't insult your intelligence or mine by saying otherwise. I present things in a matter of fact style. Phooey. The highlight of the day was Sin of course (<3), but finally meeting Zombalina (wowsers) and seeing Paul make a total bender out of himself was definitely funny... embarrassing, but funny.
