Goner Message Board / ???? / Hi, my name is 1993 and I'm calling about the room...
Posted: May 16, 2005 9:38 pm
 
My upstairs roomates are total douchebags.

ALL weekend and through most of last week they played a cd mix which 'highlighted' the likes of The Gin Blossoms, Cracker, The Breeders, Counting Crows, Hole, and a handful of other ridiculousness. There were two things other than repetition and livinginacavedness that made this more annoying than the playlist itself.

1. Everytime the Hole song would come on I'd be like "hey, I remember this album. I actually liked this album...hmm still sounds kinda good..."but each time w.o. fail they would backtrack during the opening riffs and return to the Gin Blossom/Counting Crows 1.2.
Not once did they play the Hole song in it's entirety.

Would you believe me if I told you that "Mr. Jones and Me" and "Hey Jealousy" suck more now than they did back then? The urgency of the suck is the only thing that has lessened over time.

2. Roughly every 25 minutes in "the mix" they would stop and 'flip the script' to play that stupid fucking Killers song about a girlfriend who looks like a boyfriend and how he's 'got potential' or whatever the fuck.(not to be confused w. the Blur song about girls who like boys who do girls like they're boys...though it'd be a compliment to the Killers if you did confuse the 2)These timed 'Killer Blasts' were tantamount to backing out a Civil Defense siren sized tird that plays six strings and looks like Suede who looks like Interpol who plays like Franz Ferdinand but smells like cat piss and howls wildly at the moon "please put me out of my fucking misery and hang me by the skinny piano key tie that paid my way into this alternative nightmare."

At Saturday 3:30am I invited them down to my apartment to "listen to what your music sounds like in my apartment." They were apologetic and invited me to their party next Saturday. I think I'm going to be out of town.

sounds like a killer party. i'd cancel plans and stick around if i were you.
Posted: May 16, 2005 10:38 pm
 
killer party yeah really.

My upstairs roomates are total douchebags
--CORRECTION-My upstairs neighbors are total douchebags.

I kicked a guy out of my car once because he would not quit singing "Hey Jealousy."
Posted: May 16, 2005 11:44 pm
 
I've always liked "Hey Jealousy."
Posted: May 16, 2005 11:48 pm
 
Me too, JJ, it was my high school secret favorite radio song to drive to.

Killers=poop

Go up there with a baseball bat bang on the door and when they answer scream at the top of your lungs "outta the way clit-chops" wade into the apartment smashing everything/one in sight - including the stereo.

Problem solved.

matthew...better yet....when you're playing your Collective Soul records, just turn your volume knob up to 10 and point the speakers skyward....that'll teach them a lesson or two.

Had the same problem a few years back living on the LES of all places! 4 days of my DROP DEAD cd round the clock (the one with 60 songs songs on it) at FULL VOLUME pretty much took care of any "re-locating" issues they may have had. This of course was back when the police did not give a flying fuck what was going on below Houston st. Eric , I think you guys stayed there a couple of times. Remember that crazy apartment? No rules back then. good times.

Do they ever play anything by the band "Live?" If not, they're a bunch of fucking early 90's poseurs.
Posted: May 17, 2005 2:07 am
 
HAHA! Live...
Posted: May 17, 2005 2:20 am
 
Weird....I'm actually having this same exact problem RIGHT NOW...my downstairs neighbor dude is playing shitty heavy metal REALLY FUCKING LOUD, so I decided to play the Dwarves "Toolin' for a Warm Teabag" in retalilation. I think I just started a war. Thankfully I've got the Queers' "Day Late and a Dollar Short" on my side.
Posted: May 17, 2005 2:24 am
 
DWARVES records win ALL THE TIME! Just play there entire discografy in entirity over & over & watch Ryder truck pullup to there door. I'm tellin ya's Dwarves win!
Posted: May 17, 2005 2:41 am
 
Collective Soul and Live will be heard.
I feel ya on the Hey Jealousy thing. I'm next door giving props to INXS.?
Posted: May 17, 2005 2:57 am
 
I won! It was actually the Queers that clinched it, right around the time that "Beat me, bite me, whip me, fuck me, come all over my titties and tell 'em that you love me then get the fuck out" song came on. I kept it up for a while after that. At one point he was banging on his ceiling/my floor hard enough to make the CD skip. But the point is, banging on the ceiling is the old man thing to do. Therefore, I win.

If they start playing the Cranberries, get a bag of marbles(assuming you have hard wood floors) and drop em one at a time when they go to bed. If that doesn't work, play Diecide!

I saw the band Live live.......P.J.Harvey opened, and in retrospect she was realy good, but I was too young to appreciate it....the cool part about Live was that the singer performed half thier set as a hologram in the middle of the audience....In retrospect P.J. Harvey made it worth it.

The Queers, Day Late Dollar Short, is the best album of all time, bar none.

By the way I was totally punk and still liked Live and Third Eye Blind, driving rythyms, and bad 90's pop...Third Eye Blind totally rocked...I wish I would have gone to the Smash Mouth/Third Eye Blind tour.

Yeah, it was far-out dude.
Posted: May 17, 2005 6:26 am
 
Styx, you were tripping ballz. I wish instead of just Pink Floyd lazer light shows they'd mix it up and play some Ugly Kid Joe or some Shootyz Groove.
Posted: May 17, 2005 2:33 pm
 
what amazes me is that bands like everclear still put out albums and bands like superdrag put out album on their own label!

Live was very popular in Hershey, PA.
Posted: May 17, 2005 2:47 pm
 
i would rather drink carbonated diarrhea than listen to live. i can not stand them.
Posted: May 17, 2005 2:49 pm
 
Is that a Chicago delicacy then?
Posted: May 17, 2005 2:52 pm
 
wow... I thought I could admit to likeing some lame stuff... you guys take the Cake.

I feel cool now.
Posted: May 17, 2005 2:53 pm
 
you can find it anywhere with gentry of descriminating tastes. call your finer beverage bottlers and inquire.
Posted: May 17, 2005 3:01 pm
 
Tremendous. I'm coming to the Blackout, so if you could furnish me with the details of local purveyors that would be dandy.
Posted: May 17, 2005 3:04 pm
 
there's a place on the corner of pulaski and madison, you can't miss it, go there around 3 a.m. and i'm sure you'll find what you need.
Posted: May 17, 2005 3:12 pm
 
I will go there after I've been shot at whilst going to the vegetarian restaurant that Nora has recommended. It should be an evening to remember.
Posted: May 17, 2005 3:41 pm
 
shot at whilst going to the vegetarian restaurant that Nora has recommended

Soul Vegetarian? Shit, that area's downright suburban. If you drive around back down in there it looks like Skokie. They're totally used to serving trustafarians and trust fund crusties ("trusties"?).

Go to Vegetarian Fun Food Supreme if it's still there. You might get shot over there.
Posted: May 17, 2005 3:48 pm
 
It's not really the whole 'shot at' thing that I'm looking for with this trip. Unless of course it gives me the opportunity to experience an unmissable part of Chicago culture.

Guy, with the jetlag you'll go to bed at 4am completely wasted then wake up stone cold sober and AWAKE at 6am! I suggest burgers at 9 then the juice bar underneath the Hancock bulding then coffee then Ed Durovnics or whatever its called then more coffee then hot dogs then begin drinking around 5pm cos you'll have to be raging drunk by 8pm or else you'll be getting tired. Repeat the procedure daily. You'll be confused the whole time but at least you'll be drunk! I can't understand that 'Supersize me' dude, i ate nothing but burgers, beer, hot dogs, coke, fries and shakes for over two weeks and felt great! Maybe beer has all the essential extra nutrients.

And to think that for all those long-distance journeys I made I relied on sleeping pills to deal with the time difference. Enough of these evil chemical sedatives!

By the way I was totally punk and still liked Live and Third Eye Blind, driving rythyms, and bad 90's pop...Third Eye Blind totally rocked...I wish I would have gone to the Smash Mouth/Third Eye Blind tour.

fucking governor's an asshole for not giving a reprieve to a kid for that crucial tour......how did the cell mates take to you blasting Live and Third Eye Blind...or was it only on a walkman or just in your mind?
Posted: May 17, 2005 11:25 pm | Edited by: sexual chocolate
 
Never listened to west coast punk or emo....well Jawbreakers Bivouac for about a year...but that was pre-emo but just as bad.....that's alot better than most...I can profess a taste for bad 90's alt.pop, that shit looks like The Stones compared to Louis XIIV, it's not like I bought ther album........Cornershop is another good 90's band.

and Mark Beef, I'm rich bitch!

sorry man

but the only question I needed answered was whether your rectum was still torn?

Even though he's horrible and she ain't what you call a lady

Ronnie Biggs was doing time until he done a bunk
Now he says he's seen the light and he sold his soul to punk
Ronnie Biggs was doing time until he done a bunk
Now he says he's seen the light and he sold his soul to punk

God save politicians God save our friends the pigs
God save Idi Amin and god save Ronald Biggs
God save all us sinners God save your blackest sheep
God save the good samaritan and god save the worthless creep

Ronnie Biggs was doing time until he done a bunk
Now he says he's seen the light and he sold his soul to punk
Ronnie Biggs was doing time until he done a bunk
Now he says he's seen the light and he sold his soul to punk
Sold his soul Sold his soul Sold his soul to punk

in college while sentenced to the dorms for the first year I found myself frequently doing stereo battle w. my neighbors. I was stuck b/w 2 neighbors-the hot side->'Jock Jams' over and over. The cool side->Yanni and Vangelis set to weird sing-a-long type whistling. My particular favorites amongst the "turn it up to annoy" was PJ Harvey- Rid Of Me, Oblivians- Soulfood, and 311's- Grassroots. Is that the first time the Oblivians and 311 have been used in the same sentence?? oops did it again...sowwy...but 4 real those were good times. So it appears my current woes are karmic retribution...(for playing violently loud music to piss off neighbors not for liking 311).
Posted: May 18, 2005 4:30 pm
 
just play some masonna at high volume, in fact put the speaker right out their door.
Posted: May 18, 2005 4:48 pm
 
Everclear came to my school a few years ago and I had to work at the concert. I showed up loaded and I almost fought Art Alexakis and their road manager and equipment guy and roadies. I managed to eat all their burritos and be led outside by police.
Posted: May 18, 2005 7:48 pm
 
why don't you buy your neighbors that new ponys album?
Posted: May 19, 2005 5:35 pm
 
I've not heard it.
Posted: May 20, 2005 10:33 am
 
I heard the other night that if you got any clout whatsoever, you can get a free copy from the merch girl.
Posted: May 21, 2005 3:46 am
 
I'll believe anything someone named 'Fingerbanger' tells me @ 4:33am.
Posted: May 25, 2005 2:48 pm
 
Don't forget-

Better Than Ezra
Ben Folds Five
Silverchair
Wax
Tonic
Dishwalla
10,000 Maniacs
Everclear

ALL GREAT

The good news is school's out and the Boyz Upstairs (neighbors) must've aced their finals 'cause their celebrating by listening to alot of CAKE. Talk about a band that puts the Unk all up into Funk. daaaamm. The Killers are still in heavy rotation but now rather than just the hot single all the songs get played but none of them all the way through...
Posted: Nov 15, 2005 11:03 am

ART ALEXAKIS = BANKRUPT Everclear singer Art Alexakis has reportedly filed for bankruptcy. fuck that douche.

for playing violently loud music to piss off neighbors not for liking 311).
summer days in the afternoon when the chickees walked along the sidewalk beside the dorm. All the hornie JO's in one cluster would play a porn music sound track overdubed with a phone sex track..phishing for a reaction.

I would yell up "keep it down you homos or we'll tell the cops to bust your closet pot growing set up!"

Then they threw water ballons down from the 10th floor. The tall Pine trees blocked their location.
