If you were to refer to this mixtape as "punk rock" then the elderly in the audience might beat you with their canes, so let's just not upset them like that, ok?
You know, in my day, we had to walk 20 miles through the snow--uphill, both ways--to the moshpit.
Cute. I smiled when I read your comment.
You did too???Of course, we did it with no electricity and all our moms wore flannel cause they were either loggers or lesbians.
Anyone who calls it a moshpit is a poser. GET OFF MY LAWN!
It's a slamdancer--RUN!
Thanks for thinking of me...
Josie and the Pussycats is the most underrated comic book movie of all time.
socks=knocked off.Why don't I know Los Abandoned? Is all their stuff this good?
I just love how perfectly they get Van Nuys. Like, spot on.
Ha. I was just repeating what you said about us elderly folks beating people with canes to jope and our 3-year old said, "Candy canes? You're going to beat people with candy canes? Cool!"
I will spare you the taking L7 to the airport in '91 story.
Please don't tease like that! Let's hear the story! I love L7...
It's such a lame story though. One of those embarrassing moments that comes up in my head when I hear the band.
Fine. Here goes. My boyfriend at the time was friends with them and they'd played a show together the night before. He had to go to work so he asked me to drive them to the airport and I was afraid of them because they looked like they could kick my ass. As it was, I wasn't able to take them because I was busy that day so they took the airport shuttle. But I got teased for quite awhile about how I didn't take them because I was afraid of them.
Was just listening to the Epoxies this week ... actually, I think it was even We're So Small. They're SO good.
Hey, the Devo qualifies as punk rock. And I think I've earned my cane when I say I remember when that album came out ... and I played it on a pirate radio station at the time.
When i first saw this I thought they looked like the children of Devo in a juvenile detention facility run by the Disney Corporation.
Then I looked them up and it really is Disney! ha ha ha
That's wrong on so many levels.
And yet fully in keeping with the principles of devolution.
Is it OK to play music that "encourages" copying itself (C30, C60, C90 Go)?
BTW: Best. Mixtape. Evar. But I'm elderly (I've got my home-taped music-killing copy of "Your Cassette Pet" around somewhere). Get off my lawn.
These have been great, can't wait to see next week if they're numbered in hex.
Incidentally, is Mixtape #8 broken? It's cut out twice for me after Frostiva -- Pathos. This was last night, under iTunes.
