What you lookin' at? You all a bunch of fuckin' assholes. You know why? You don't have the guts to be what you wanna be? You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your fuckin' fingers and say, "That's the bad guy." So... what that make you? Good? You're not good. You just know how to hide, how to lie. Me, I don't have that problem. Me, I always tell the truth. Even when I lie. So say good night to the bad guy! Come on. The last time you gonna see a bad guy like this again, let me tell you. Come on. Make way for the bad guy. There's a bad guy comin' through! Better get outta his way!

Is this it? That's what it's all about, Manny? Eating, drinking, fucking, sucking? Snorting? Then what? You're 50. You got a bag for a belly. You got tits, you need a bra. They got hair on them. You got a liver, they got spots on it, and you're eating this fuckin' shit, looking like these rich fucking mummies in here... Look at that. A junkie. I got a fuckin' junkie for a wife. She don't eat nothing. Sleeps all day with them black shades on. Wakes up with a Quaalude, and who won't fuck me 'cause she's in a coma. I can't even have a kid with her, Manny. Her womb is so polluted, I can't even have a fuckin' little baby with her!

you guys should start going out in full Halloween costumes...that'll show those hipstah douches...

mine is totally ironic. surprised you didn't know that.
Posted: Jun 8, 2007 5:59 pm
pretty lame for the last 5 or 7 years
venues are fat with crap we don't wanna see.
bands have dried up or only play the one or two
places remaining every 6 weeks.


when your stuck up here in the rain it's a heavy hit for a touring band to come through. Almost as bad a van bc...

Folded arms and no sense of rhythm. Ironic when you consider they all conform.
Posted: Jun 8, 2007 6:38 pm | Edited by: I am the Arm
Folded arms, tapping feets, sipping their beers, not doing a goddamned thing...OUr scene is so hip no one looks like they're having fun or even alive at all...Lame!!! I saw some action in San Diego last weekend. I'm all jealous of that crowd. They were wild. To make wildness is my goal tonight.

you're just as much a part of the audience as everyone else. I remember a wild ass crowd at the last boss hoss show...but you wouldn't remember because you left at 10:30 or something...gay

then you complain...gayer

My scene sucks. We set up shows at our house and nobody comes. I even made Kool-Aid for the last show and nobody came. Fuck Provo.
Posted: Jun 8, 2007 11:39 pm
Fuck Provo.

Posted: Jun 9, 2007 12:18 am

I've yet to see that movie. I bet it's better up there though. They probably don't have to try and entice people with Kool-Aid. I know a couple cool bands up there....So maybe I should move.

NYC: City is filled w/ dorks. Manhattan has dryed up since Wowsville closed.

Brooklyn venues:

Trash: Blasts ironic metal like it's 1993 and has a lock on the the most asinine, blowhard, bartending staff. Too cool. Smells like tater tots. Sound is good most of the time, and the crowds are better than average due to location. Still, I can't stand hanging out there.

Union Pool: Fills up w/ NYU kids for their first night out away from home every night. Where do they all come from? (Hint for high school fuck ups: apply to NYU, you WILL get in.) Back room is nice but 60/40 split at the door is wack. (That's 60 to the club 40 to the bands.)

Magnetic Field: Might be the best in the city, but is just far enough away from everything to make it a trek to get to and once you're there, that's it, you're there and nowhere else. Same for the Hook x1000.

Don Pedros: All right but in the hood so deep that everybody I know has got reservations about walking to and fro. Don't bullshit me and say your not afraid to walk alone there after two a.m. Also the p.a. has taken a crap on the floor both times I've been there.

It's enough to make one misty for the Continental.

Passout's got a good thing and the amature night atmosphere is charming. Up to a point.

Luna just opened a big joint on Metropolitan, but judging from the poters outside they're booking indie rock and artsy fartsy hiphop. Holds about 500 people. So that's out.

Haven't seen a band at Black Betty's yet, sorry I missed the Clean Teens on Tuesday.

At any of these places 20-30 people is a nice turnout for a local only show. You'll get more for a name touring band.
Posted: Jun 9, 2007 4:37 am
...and in the next issue of maximum rock and roll we'll have a summation of all this great knowledge so you can pass around when you are booking your next tour...

I couldn't tell you? since I don't go out much? But scenesters to me? seem like? bigger assholes than NASCAR fans?

Equal numbers porch honkees and porch monkees drinking Busch tallboys and tactically modifying their Mossbergs while listening to classic rock or 80's party rap/ 90's pop r&b.

The crack dealers who installed a park bench and BBQ grill in the front yard so their aunties/gramps are comfortable while stealth posting lookout keep things diverse. We also have one familia grande with an average of 14 cars parked in front of a 3/4 bedroom house on weeknights, and up to 10 more on Telemundo futbol nights, add the spice.

I live in New York. Maybe Manhattan is for old people. Whatever Ben may say, I don't know anyone in Manhattan that envies Brooklyn. I know I'm just fine to stay here in the city.

I only go out to a few shows a year- usually at least one show at the garden- I think the Who was the last thing I saw there, but mostly smaller venues like Irving Plaza or Hammerstein Ballroom, but it really just depends on who is playing where. Mostly I go out to dinner, or I stay home with my wife and have a glass of wine. I have a friend in the "business" that invites me to "stuff". That gets me out from time to time. Otherwise, I'm a member of MoMA and I go to a lot of private art galleries. Then I come to boards like this.

Last time I was doing any "club" thing, it was Coney Island High or The Bank, and I was already at the older end of their clientele spectrum, even back then.

I live in New York.

Hey, I'm moving up there for the final season at Yankee Stadium and need to rent a place in the Bronx with my two dogs. Keep me posted.

Trying to set up jam sessions with recording studio-owning bass players, smoking cheap cigars writing cowboy chord songs about driving and crystal meth, etc.
Posted: Jun 12, 2007 1:38 pm
bessie, broiled fish, my boys, micha, tim or mike (when i'm lucky), and my job, which i dig more since i've surrounded myself with a couple of cool nerd lovers of the rock.

yoga's been jamming me lately, and the gym. i can almost walk now without lurching.

oh yeah, and then.... here comes the weekend! ugh. and that's when it all falls apart. the lost days, the regretful moans, the absolutions of NEVER AGAIN. but if it's so fun, how can I stop? therein lies the dilemma of my "scene."
Posted: Jun 12, 2007 6:58 pm
here comes the weekend
we get to see the girls
long live the weekend
the weekend is DEAD!

weekend sucks around here, all the good bars are packed out with suburbanite types who are more at home in their cars listening to commercial raydio
of course the city hipsters are more boring.
forget about the folded arms, think about the folded brains

my town's so lame this is what was on the front page of today's paper

i THINK this poem is about oregon
i know william stafford taught there for years

Traveling through the dark I found a deer
dead on the edge of the Wilson River road.
It is usually best to roll them into the canyon:
that road is narrow; to swerve might make more dead.

By glow of the tail-light I stumbled back of the car
and stood by the heap, a doe, a recent killing;
she had stiffened already, almost cold.
I dragged her off; she was large in the belly.

My fingers touching her side brought me the reason--
her side was warm; her fawn lay there waiting,
alive, still, never to be born.
Beside that mountain road I hesitated.

The car aimed ahead its lowered parking lights;
under the hood purred the steady engine.
I stood in the glare of the warm exhaust turning red;
around our group I could hear the wilderness listen.

I thought hard for us all--my only swerving--,
then pushed her over the edge into the river.

NYC took a nosedive when Chris and Jami, Alberto and Sonia, Wowsville, April and Joe all left. Arturo, Erick, Ben and Keegan are here now, so that's good.

I wish there was as many bands (that I'd like to see, at least) here as Chicago or Atlanta, but I know it's hard to get a footing in NYC because it's so expensive, but once you're here for a little while it's not too hard.

There's also a lot of shows in the middle of the week here for some reason.

Renevated Luna Lounge is great, if a bit vacuous (impossible for any of these type bands to fill, the Times New Viking show had a good turnout and it was still relatively empty.)

There's no one, great, dependable venue. Not since Union Pool turned over.
