hahahahaaha Yeah, I felt the urge to comment on this craptacular band after I saw that a few of my friends have been watching some new video that they just did. I checked the video out myself and I haven't stopped laughing ever since! First off, the Alamo hasn't looked better. I'm surprised they were able to find 10 people to be in the video with the band, and all the video seems to be is like an excuse for that front woman person to spread her germs by making out with everyone in the room, both guy and girl. The music is horrible, and the songs main riff is a thinly disguised NOFX rip off, right down to the effect used on the guitar that gives it that sound. Didn't this band once rip off the riff to Motley Crue's Kick Start My Heart, or am I confusing them with some other Local idiot douchebags? Oh well. Some bands just truly don't care, do they? I was watching this video with my friend's daughter in the room with me, and even she could see that what she was watching was truly, truly lame. She' s only 9 years old and here's what she had to say while viewing it and I assure you, this was completely unprovoked or prompted of her in any way, shape or form:
They look like the type of band who thinks that they're good, but they're really not.
Hahahahahahahaha oh gawd! The brilliance of children! <3 If even she can see what a joke that band is, then why the fuck do some of my friends, who play in bands and who's musical opinions I kind of value, even get behind them or support them in any way, shape or form? Just like Facebook, apparently some of you don't have a 'dislike' button about bands, or either that or you're too chickenshit to tell a band that they suck. Excuse me, let me correct that - you're too chickenshit to tell a band that they suck to their faces. More than a few of you have told me what you think about bands here in town, and I'm not gonna throw anyone under the bus, believe me, but sometimes, just sometimes, I wish you would go public with what you think. Don't be scurred! ;-) Having an opinion is not a bad thing! LOL What's the worst that could happen anyways? They don't talk to you anymore? Boo fucking Hoo. Oh well. Whatever. Nevermind. Just my opinion and what do I know anyways, right? Right! But remember this: to live as a coward is no way to live. ;-)
Captain Beefheart passed away last week, and that's all I have to say about that. I was not a fan of the man, but I know a lot of people were, and to them I say, 'Splain Please, because I just don't get it. I've been watching the videos you've been posting up, and I again, just don't get it. Sorry. I know a lot of bands were influenced by him, but all I'm hearing is the stuff my Dad used to listen to, and that's not really a good thing... hee hee hee
And for those of you who were concerned about them, the band Paramore is NOT breaking up. What's happening is that all the band members except for the singer are leaving. Apparently they all finally woke up one day and could no longer face the shame that comes with being in that band and they could no longer perpetrate the myth that their music had any redeeming qualities whatsoever. Now if only some Local bands could get that concept into their head, we might have a thriving new scene here, flourishing with new musical collaborations and ideas being spread around freely, instead of bands flogging a dead horse and carrying all that excess luggage and baggage and monkeys on their backs. It's almost 2011 - we need some new bands here in town to kick shit up and keep the younger bands from sitting on their laurels! Out with the Old, and in with the New and remember, this is all coming from a guy who plays Loud Pipes reunion gigs every 6 or 7 years, so take it all with a grain of salt... hee hee hee
So, was it the Christmas booze, or the stress of the Holidays that caused all the fighting at the gigs this past weekend? Booooooooooo to whatever it was that was causing it. Macho insecurity? Mommy issues? Little dicks? Get over it man. Fighting at gigs is sooooooooooooo 1987 and nothing to take pride in.
Enough of the negativity! It's fucking Christmas time! The Raiders are still in the hunt for a playoff berth, and the Sharks are infuriating but I don't care. Everything is awesome, and I have the best friends EVER! Let's all be of good cheer and wish Xtal a Happy Birthday, which I believe happened on yesterday. Thank Allah for those Facebook notifications, huh? LOL She's gotta be pushing 23 by now, and I think it's all the guys like Hollywood Shane who used to stalk her on the Tag Board that keep her on her toes and looking so good! hahaaha Happy Birthday Xtal! I owe you a round or 2 or 3! Anyways, Merry Christmas to you all, and enjoy your Holiday. Everything is updated. All sorts of cool gigs added to the page, like the Motörhead one, and the Malevolent Creation one, which should be very, very interesting to see. My Christmas shopping is done. All of my gifts have been wrapped. I'm heading Home, with a carload of gifts for my Family. Happy Holidays everyone! See you when I get back.
