Quick personal story: the day after the BB King booing an 89 year old guy came in to do his taxes with me. He just had a form for the loss of his house so right away I knew he wasn’t getting any money back (which was the only thing he was interested in) but I remembered the BB King story and thought, man I’m going to listen to this old fella because I don’t want to be like them dudes that booed BB King. Long story short, he told me all about how the government is against him, “the attorneys”, the judge, and he made countless racist remarks for about 20 minutes. When I finally tried to hint for him to leave, he just kept saying the same things in circles. I think we “talked” for about an hour until he regained his marbles and decided to leave. Anyways, I did the right thing and I’m glad I did it, but man that shit that depressing. Anyways, no moral to the story, just a thing that happened that was semi-related to this site.
“STOP BEING OLD!”
That’s a mighty elaborate way of saying that in 30 years our white dreads will turn grey.
Rocking in the Freak World
I’m pretty sure this is just a very complicated plan to get Neil Young porno trending on Google.
True. It’s not everywhere that you can hear funk slap bass mixed with the dancehall and hip-hop beats and punk guitar and deadly on the mcs.
Putting on SXSW; you know it ain’t easy,
March is my busiest time at work so I don’t think I’m going in the foreseeable future. But I ask myself, with all the mainstream commercialization, can the festival still come full range?
PS. Feel free to cite me on your report.
When I was 19 I got high and drove home listening to the radio between stations on full blast. I don’t remember what station it was but it was mostly static with very few whispers of audible music, but I didn’t realize until I got home. I honestly thought it was supposed to sound like that at the time. The whole time I thought I was listening to grunge. People would stare at me from other cars and stare and I just thought, “man, looks like these people have never seen a Mexican dude listening to grunge before.” Anyways, that’s why I don’t smoke weed anymore.
And here I was basing my appreciation of his music on artistic merit.
