That's the way it goes when you're a rich kid tryin' to be gutter."

His first piercing was a septum ring. He later had his ears pierced.

What's a septum ring?

Donahue does it again!!

I don't have time to read this now but I assume he's talking about Jay?
Posted: Feb 1, 2008 8:27 am
 
I think he was inadvertently (or gasp, ironically) talking about himself.

That's some sly Donohue quote inclusion right there.

Nothings more punk rock than playing at the local Starbucks on a tuesday night @ 6:30

where's the audio clips?

kicked out of MUS?

TOMMY TROUBLE, report in please!

This is all before Hot Topic, where you can get everything. This was me going out in my garage and finding chains to fasten on my wallet. It was real punk rock. Like DIY.

because a wallet on a chain is what makes you punk rock! and making it yourself? priceless. DIY baby.

I ain't gonna pick on the kid; a lot of "old-skool punx" came out of suburbia.
But this line is genious:
"It's about the first girl I ever fell in love with, this punk-rock girl that was going to Hutchison."
Posted: Feb 1, 2008 11:25 am
 
"witt formed his first band skeeter a ska group"blues derives its sound from a train on a railroad track. ska is the sound of a washing machine on its spin cycle with a jacket inside with to many metal studs in it.

So is Donahue like the Nardwuar or Ali G of Memphis journalism? His job is to rip on naive kids, right?
Posted: Feb 1, 2008 12:05 pm
 
he ain't rippin on nobody! just the facts, baby!
Posted: Feb 1, 2008 12:06 pm
 
Not sure about all that, but is 25 still a kid?

I guess 25 seems like a kid to me, but OK, naive adult. I'm just wondering if he's genuine in his effort to give local bands some exposure or if he's just trying get some laughs at their expense. I mean, don't get me wrong, it's funny. It's just hard to tell, especially when he writes about the most insignificant crap about a band, like what they wear.

Yet he'll make some stupid comment about Hot Topic, as if he has a point.
Whatever.

he was the "society reporter" for a long time. I thought that was pretty priceless...talking about dude's clothes as if he was describing ball dress or something.
Posted: Feb 1, 2008 12:44 pm
 
he was the "society reporter"

Still is...he rubs shoulders with women whose tits cost more than my car
Posted: Feb 1, 2008 12:52 pm
 
Didn't they throw him that society beat bone after he initially was a "music critic" and for some reason didn't have the sense to sack him?
Posted: Feb 1, 2008 1:11 pm
 
sack donahue? he's an institution. he, mehr, andria and some koeppel (and some unintentional comedy) are about the only reasons to read it.

This guy wants press, dohahue gives it to him.
Posted: Feb 1, 2008 1:17 pm
 
Do ya think they're "doin it"?
Posted: Feb 1, 2008 1:22 pm
 
he's an institution.

(some unintentional comedy)

Damned skippy...not much other reason to read it.
Fer sure

Haven't been around much this semester. Terminal term-paper season.

This kid's a former student.
Can't really comment.

But if you really want to get to the heart of the matter, someday I'll shave my head and let you read the tat on my skull. It's all you need to know about punk.

Go RhodesThugs!!!
Posted: Apr 17, 2008 8:03 pm
 
HOLY FUCK! clearly this guy is the greatest culture jammer ever. "Tuesday at Starbucks" Ha! -genius.
Posted: Apr 17, 2008 10:07 pm
 
tommy's institutionalizable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Posted: Apr 17, 2008 10:57 pm
 
Nope. He just wants a Pepsi. And another sweater.
Posted: Apr 18, 2008 11:19 am
 
Is that kid sitting in a CJ's? Thought I recognised the java mug!

Who wouldn't want another sweater? Or more Donahue?
Posted: Apr 18, 2008 11:22 am
 
Been scanning Donahue's back pages, and I loved the header:

"Fayette County couple keeps 26 animals on a farm where fun and love rule the roost"

Mmm, kinky!
Posted: Apr 18, 2008 11:30 am
 
Link please? I think I know that person!
Posted: Apr 18, 2008 4:06 pm
 
Sorry, a CK's, I meant " there's lots of places in Memphis I've only been to when I was off my tits, as it were...

dtrain, if you click on Donahue's name after his byline, it leads you into a netherworld of unintentional humour which a Hobbit Motherfucker would be hard pressed to emerge from with funnybone unscathed... you and your respitory system have been warned... those with enlarged valves should watch their hilarity readings, also...

If Richard Meltzer is organic, then Donahue is hydro...

Posted: Apr 18, 2008 4:52 pm
 
it's a whole nother band!

BATTLE!
Posted: Apr 18, 2008 5:40 pm
 
Is this Donahue serious? Are these articles real or made up? I can't tell. How can there be SO MANY retarded people out there and if there is, how does HE find them!???
Posted: Apr 18, 2008 8:07 pm
 
I think Donahue is a genius.

Check out this fine bit of muckraking:

http://www.commercialappeal.com/news/2008/apr/04/bars-u-of-m-holding-p arties/

Who'da thunk university bars would celebrate a final four berth?!?!?!

I can't stop reading his columns. They're hysterical.
Posted: Apr 18, 2008 8:32 pm
 
This one practically takes the cake. This guy needs to be writing for the Onion!

"We were so into the scene at the time," Laster said. "We went to MAC makeup and got our makeup professionally done. Like we had some serious dope eye-liner."

Listening to 'Dimeback' Darrell
Posted: Apr 20, 2008 12:46 am
 
Donahue gets paid to do what y\'all are doing for free.
Posted: Apr 20, 2008 7:15 am
 
I thought Darcy was in this band?

Not any more...she has another thing going which should be ready soon.
Posted: Apr 20, 2008 2:55 pm
 
Awesome.
Posted: Apr 29, 2008 12:04 pm
