Well my good friend Erich over at the Good Bad site outdid himself and instead of just sending me the Dave MDC/Pig Champion 7″ that we had talked about, he piled on a few extra, including X Ray Spex, ACDC, ExtrememNoiseTerror, Fear Of God, Kaaos, and Odio. Really an insanely cool thing to do and a definitely cool reminder of how over the top some people in this community are. Really took me back to the old days of when music lovers took care of each other but I guess that’s what this whole music blog thing is about. THANX A TON ERICH. Expect some of these posted in the near future as most of these are Mustard Relics and by coming here by way of someone who played in a band that I really dug on back in the day, the others have instantly become so.
As this blog and it’s author grow older there may be a few things worth mentioning. Well the spam comments have far surpassed the number of just regular comments now. Had to set it up so that when there are words like xanax, viagra, cialis and valium it goes straight into the spam pile so I don’t have to spend 20 minutes everyday moderating comments. A typical spam comment these days might be,
“That proved propoxyphene master walking clonidine his form paroxetine long gone fulvicin structures were prinivil they entered nizoral own sorrow tamiflu agreed ruefully atorvastatin skeletons made actonel olie bade provigil just couldn ultram help the psilocybin irrelevant because azithromycin future encounter triamterene gems within bontril gone from levitra sex with tylenol aybe our cyclobenzaprine spend the colchicine olph scooted plendil olie took amazing.”
Once in a while I get self centered or maybe it’s just paranoid and I do a Google or Yahoo search for myself and see what’s out there. There was the usual stuff but this time there was something new. A young guy (goes by the nickname GG Allin) who has commented here and is actually a regular around the Good Bad site had some kind of a journal entry that made mention of me. Check it out.
“i wanted to post this for fucking ever now and now i get to. i want to bring this up. i’ll give some examples of what i’m talking about. justin hrabe. he was the the lead singer of bands such as wd-40 and garden weasel. now he has a wife and lives in kansas. what happened dude? and what about peter from raped teenagers? now where is he? he is now in a pop band called the flakes. erich keller is still cool but what about all the guys who when their bands broke up got a computer job and a fucking bmw. this is what worrys me. what happens to me in a fer years? what happens to the guys in nobody good in a few years? will all the kids lose interest and go back back to school? i don’t want to become that but i’m afrade. i’m afrade for all the punks in the world. don’t lose tuch. don’t stop believing in rebellion and most of all don’t stop just because everybody says you have to! don’t be like the brainwashed masses be yourself! believe in what you want don’t believe what someone tells you to believe and don’t give in until you’ve fucking won! that’s all i have to say. ”
First off I’d say he really needs to work on his spelling but maybe that’s the new texting generation of abbreviations and the lack of focus 0n phonics. Ohter than that I’d say he was worried about ending up like me and some of the older generations of punks and maybe implied that we had changed for the worst. I know that I have changed but I like to think for the better, wiser and yet not forgetting where I came from. How can I do anything but that. As it stands I can never have another drink or do dope because of where I’ve been. Shit that was half or more of what it was all about for me. I still hate government, big business, capitalism, racism, suffering and so on. I don’t know, his words made me think and that is never bad, and actually what I came up with is I’m pretty happy with where I am today, married, who I have around me, my friends and where I’m at. What about you guys, how has growing older worked out for you?
Going back again to my Johnny Cash post, Josh Hansen, another former Humboldt County California resident recommended another great Johnny tune, Highway Patrolman that was actually written by Bruce Springsteen. To be honest with you I don’t think I’ve ever heard a JC tune I didn’t like. Expect another post on him in the near future.
Was listening to the classic rock station that I’ve mentioned a hundred times and heard this one tune that I really dug but the DJ pulled a shit head manuever and didn’t mention the name of the tune or the artist. Something about “Junkie Man”, that sounded a little bit like Cream, but I couldn’t find anything like that on soulseek. Any help you guys? Heard another tune called Dance Little Sister by the Rolling Stones that I’ve heard a million times but for some reason it totally reminded me of 70’s punk.
If you made it this far through my ramblings thanx for reading and for hanging in there… 😀
