Goner Message Board / ???? / new york BLOWS
Posted: Dec 28, 2005 7:04 pm
alright, TimeOut NY music writers just posted their "Best Albums of 2005" and they're all LAME. not a single rock n' roll, punk, psych or garage rock record is mentioned. goddamn, this town does indeed blow.

and need I also mention that they don't even LIST saturday's A-Bones/Black Lips show that boasts a stellar cast of Djs. but they give a big red star to little steven's 300 dollar shindig with mooney suzuki. i mean, holy DAMN.

I thought NY was a haven for new and exciting music and arts...What happened? Were there a shitload of rappers on the "list"?
Posted: Dec 28, 2005 7:25 pm
now i can't wait to see the voice's pazz & jop list...when does that come out?

oh, and let's not forget that for your $300 to spend new year's w/ little steven and the mooney suzuki, you also get to see the charms. oh boy! and the chesterfield kings. what year is this again?
Posted: Dec 28, 2005 7:57 pm
I thought that was LA, Arm.
Posted: Dec 28, 2005 7:59 pm
LA has its own gayness not far different from NY's displayed gaydom...
Posted: Dec 28, 2005 8:29 pm
Come on! NY and LA suck in COMPLETELY different ways.
Posted: Dec 28, 2005 9:41 pm
Mr. Arm - I will actually be in LA in February for a few days. We should party. I will have been sans weed for 4-5 days at the point of my escape from work, so ditch weed would probably knock me silly. What I'm saying is, keep me away from that shit you brought to the Blackout, as I'm afraid of ending up in one of your movies.

Jenna, you should come to Memphis. It sucks better than any town in the whole US of A.
Posted: Dec 28, 2005 10:40 pm
I don't think anyone reading Time Out looking for NYE plans would come out to Union Pool anyway, so not worth worrying about. Anyone else notice that the Little Steven show is going to be broadcast on ESPN & ESPN2? I'm still trying to figure out the sports connection.

new york is the most exciting city in the world. where else can you find me and bazooka joe???

i second that!

for the amount of people that live in nyc, you'd think they're be a few more good bands. in the 2 years that i lived there, i saw more horrible local bands than i could have ever imagined.
Posted: Dec 28, 2005 10:55 pm
nobody in a band can afford to live in manhattan any more. and brooklyn is for queers. i can't get my groove on in brooklyn.
Posted: Dec 28, 2005 11:08 pm
We should party.

Trick, let me know when in Feb.
I'll make sure and go visit some blunt smokin niggas of mine. They're privy to smokin hay and oregano. You'll love it. I'll leave the cameras at home.

it isn't the sports connection - its the CASH connection.
as someone who worked in that organization from before it started, i can safely tell you that it is ALL ABOUT the benjamins. always has been; always will be.
plus, i'm sure that they've grokked their ratings and such to support the fact that their core audience is males of whatever age that is also the core audience of ESPN.

In Holland we have a lack of good bands, but some of the journalists do have a good taste.
Dutch radiostation VPRO (you've probably all heard about that one) has a listening booth on their website with each month a selection of 12 new records which you can all listen in full.
The last week of the year this listening booth ("luisterpaal") features the best 12 albums of all 144 albums that has been on it the last year.
The BLACK LIPS is one of them!!!! Viva la VPRO!!!
Listen here!
Click "omlaag" to scroll down (or "omhoog" to scroll up) and click on the album you wanna here, enjoy!

sorry, i couldn't resist.

damn, clubber...You're gettin ballzy lately.
Careful with the Bazooka jokes...I hear he knows karate.
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 12:20 am
scott and april, I may just move to memphis after all. i am not kidding. something has got to give--a new life must be found and there is something very welcoming about that young avenue area.

todd, i will likely be in LA february myself. perhaps you, me and the arm can all hang one night.
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 12:39 am
I'll hang...Let a feller know when. Hopefully there's a cool band in town.

Yo, NYC ain't bad Ya'll! Great shoppin, some pretty hard hoodz, I roll through those hoodz when I'm out therre. It's the damn paparazzi in NYC that got me trippin! Yo, you feel me!! HA HA HA! that shit is real!!
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 4:06 am

Portland OR is the move. I moved here ten years ago from NYC and it is perfect. It is a cool city, small enough, multiple freaks and a good music scene. What more could you want. I lived in NYC from 87-95 and the music here is much better than NY was. LA costs too much and the music is lame there too.

Yeah, I'll hang w/ anyone in LA in Feb., even you, Jenna! Just kiddin'. It'll only be for a couple days, or should I say I'll only be free to party for a weekend. NYC is one of my favorite places in the world to visit. I could never live there, or Chicago, or Memphis, or a lot of places I love visiting. I haven't been to Portland, but for some reason it's always been in the back of my mind as the one place I'd go if I moved out of Wisconsin (there or Seattle).
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 3:22 pm
hmmm, todd, just for that backhanded comment, if we DO end up hanging one night, i'm going to insist we get ripped somewhere that you, me and the arm can try to outdance each other song for song. that's after we smoke the peace pipe, of course.
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 4:36 pm
Anybody else want to hang out?
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 4:48 pm
Portland has its very wonderful things; the only reason I wanna move back to Memphis (or am at least considering it) is because I am from there, my mom will one day need me and uh, I am from there.

I doubt I'd find Memphis as charming as all that (other than the occaisional visit) if I had grown up anywhere else. Some non-Memphians come to town and really embrace it and bring good stuff to it, so I dunno. It is always a crap shoot, no matter where you are.
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 5:12 pm
Oh I forgot to mention another plus... Joe Pestilence lives here!
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 5:18 pm
what are the dates again todd? for the chance to party with you i'll go to l.a. maybe i can fit it in after sxsw.
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 6:48 pm
New York's OK if you like saxophones.
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 6:49 pm
I'll hang...Let a feller know when. Hopefully there's a cool band in town.

Intelligence, Lamps, Two Tears, Guilty Hearts 2/11 - Scene bar

Anybody else want to hang out?
I'm down...we'll get you good and drunk and take you for some "tacos de cesos"
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 7:08 pm

i have to admit to digging me some FEAR back in the day. my taste cannot be contained.
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 7:19 pm
Kick ass! That's the weekend I'll be there. I'm going to tackle-noogie Lars and annoy Monty, who I don't know from Adam but seems like a funny and entertaining chap.

So-Cal tacos sound good to me. Meet us out, Dirk! Arm will have wicked weed and pornsluts just dying to slap your rockstar bat around. I won't tell the wifey.
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 7:30 pm
It's not so much whether or not New York sucks. TONYs complete cluelessness is just another illustration of the press not having a fucking clue. TONY, with a few exceptions, has had little to no taste , for as long as I can remember. There are definately a number of shitty local bands here, but there are also some damn fine ones too...Best not to rely on the local press to actually know whats up musically....
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 7:41 pm
aw yeah, party fucking DOWN, dudes! LA style. me, trickknee, the arm, gore, monty, and lars (I met your ex-girlfriend kimberley and I LOVE her). and I really like the scene.
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 7:48 pm
Who's Kimberly? Someone invite Larry Hardy, and Erika, and fuck...I'm gonna tell Lars to drag Min and Erin down...this party will be so great that an earthquake will have to wipe out the city like Youth Brigade sed...I'll be sinking with California....and it'll be great! I can swim. I'll swim up to Portland and take an assumed name (Ned Digler) and make my jillions. You'll see, I'll show all you motherfuckers!!!!!
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 7:48 pm
Where are the intellegence from? I liked them with the tyrades I think. I was purty drunk.

slap your rockstar bat around.
Cute, I know just the chick for that.

Gore, remember the last time we went for tacos? I remember somehing about fingerfucking a burrito... This could be good. Drinks, rock, and tacos are a great mix...
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 7:49 pm
Fuck, I was sorta dreading this trip, and now I'm into it! Fucking Lars will be there! He rules! Why am I turning into Ned?
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 7:50 pm
Dude, the Intelligence ARE Lars (and cogs...I think the Popular Shapes right now), and Lars is a rocker! They rule!
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 7:50 pm
Uhh, just don't start on Bazooka and I'd say you're ned-free.
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 7:51 pm
I'm even looking forward to meeting Jenna and Gore, and they're fucking a-holes! Isn't Teresa the photog out there?
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 7:52 pm
I'm just kidding, Gore.
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 7:52 pm
And Jenna!
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 7:52 pm
quit posting at the same time as me, trick.
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 7:54 pm
Ok, you're bored. It's obvious...Did you take the day off?
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 8:01 pm
Nah, I'm actually incredibly busy! You ever get to the point that there's so much to do that you don't even wanna face it? That's me. Posting on Goner while everything falls apart. I'm like Nero, except more important, historically.
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 8:07 pm
kimberley was in the intelligence, thee flying dutchmen, and is now in the fe fi fo fums and some other seattle band I can't remember the name of. she is hands down one of the funniest ladies i have met in years and she's dating robert kissnrun, who I adore, so as far as I'm concerned she's now rock family. we spent thanksgiving together, which was a lesson in my sobriety (drinking my chinese tea to cleanse my polluted liver) and everyone else's complete debauchery. good times!
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 8:08 pm
Same here. I got a shit-ton of stuff to do before AVN on jan. 4th...We're going to vegas for a week. I'll be there with every pornstar in the world that's trying to promote their next releases. It's gonna be nuts. I'm actually thinkin I'm gonna have to get back to work...Yawn.
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 8:10 pm
and todd, quit cutting me down, dude, 'cos I'm going to give you a big hug and we're going to be fast friends!
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 8:17 pm
Larry will more than likely be at the show...as will Jimmy Hole...

Trick- speaking of assholes...I may be fingering more than your burrito.

HA! just kidding.

ARM - it all came rushing back...Downey right? oh shit! WHAT A NIGHT!
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 8:21 pm
Yup, downey....Y'all were at the Library late...
Oh my god...I just remembered the Aloe plant ejaculation...Oh My, maybe I shouldn't go eat tacos with y'all. I'd get arrested for sure.
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 8:51 pm
We're already friends, Jenna! Don't you rip on yer pals? It's the modern way to say "I care," ya horsefuck! I know you're not kidding, gore, but that's alright because I'm a modern man with modern wayz and modern men are a little gay(z). I found those lyrics on an Action Swingers jacket.
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 8:52 pm
I don't know Jimmy Hole, but anyone who lives in Larry's crawlspace is OK with me!
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 8:54 pm
As for Kimberly, you'd think I'd know who she was, but I have no idea. But anyone who gets naked with Lars is OK by me.
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 8:54 pm
Someone call Derek Retard!
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 8:57 pm
awwwww.... good! i make a good friend. just don't ever play in a band with me, 'cos you will end up hating me when I quit. happens every time with every band i've ever been in. after GW do the Party Down EP, i'm going to do a solo single called Fuck You, Jenna, You Goddamn Quitter!!! You Promised We Would Rock FOREVER!

it will be 3 songs, each one unfinished, and the vinyl will be frayed at the edges.
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 9:04 pm
I play guitar like a mongoloid w/ mittens, so no worries there. And drums? I can't. I've done sax and claps and back-ups on a lot of records because people feel bad for how much I suck at playing instruments. So I'll just stay off the stage, thanks. Maybe a basement here and there. But anyway, my guitar gently weeps for the city that never sleeps....Los Angeles! All her toys wore out in black...duhp duhp duhp duhp...Los Angeles! The city of angles....Los Geometropolis.....
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 9:29 pm
this is going to be the best vacation ever!!! especially if jenna ignores me the whole time!!! yay!!! bazooka joe just stay in l.a. until we get there. woo hoo!!!
Posted: Dec 29, 2005 9:42 pm

Posted: Dec 29, 2005 9:45 pm

Posted: Dec 29, 2005 10:16 pm | Edited by: I am the Arm
I hug big...Ask sherry. I think it was something like, "I haven't been picked up like that since I was 10..."I hug big.
