Well Pierced Arrows rocked it. New drummer was fine.
I mean I don't get the curmudgeonly pungent aspect of this messageboard. I've never understood it. Any sort of musical culture, except like maybe mexican mariachi gangster music or something is in it's death throws and we all, some more than others, have our heads shoved up our asses. That's what I can't stand, the petty bullshit. It's oppressive like a dutch oven.
I've always considered this an open forum, the title is ???, since literaly anyone can post or read this shit, it's closer to what Rolling Stone or Cream were originaly like with all the fan submitted material....it was all sort of a freeform free for all....with a few connecting themes like 'interesting music.' The writing may suck worse because none of our posts are being edited down for print, but I don't know, I've read alot of wordy asinine Rolling Stones articles. The real problem is that 9 times out of 10 this board becomes professional wrestling without the cool holds and acrobats.....and then you get targeted by the same 5 people for the next 6 months.
That's how things get so fucking volatile. It's not constructive. It's nice when people talk about their family lives or record scores and shit, everyone likes that those are pleasant thoughts, but have any strong opinions about music and you better be prepared for an argument and not even a rational argument a fucking absurd, petty, one.
The recent animosity against me started when I posted some band footage and on another thread said that if the end of the world came I'd enjoy watching half the other people die cuz they're fucking morons. I'm not going to defend either of those things....they're both pretty fucking kosher realy. I post shit tons of comments, some not very interesting and some way interesting, it's just whatever and not anything to try to justify or defend. I mean I would rather not put myself out there so much anyway, because I get nothing from it. When this message board is good it's alot of people posting about alot of interesting stuff, but most of the time it seems like the same motherfuckers on a plane who's engines have gone out, some folks are trying to glide it to safety and the rest are fighting for a spot in tail...there is a Lynard Skynard analogy in there somewhere.
I used to get real worked up about it, I was immature and didn't regard myself enough to just walk away. Now it's just whatever, fuck it. It's not worth getting fired up and angry about.

I just need to get Ding out of my daily routine for awhile.
Ding if you would just chill out I don't think anyone would give a shit about how damn annoying you can be.
