needless to say, i’m frustrated. so my brother told me to check out Hail Social after he caught them opening up for Rainer Maria and i’m glad that he did. i really like what i have heard from these guys so far. it is very much along the lines of a lot of indie rock […]

word verification…

so i’ve been getting “comment spam” on my innocent little blog and apparently the only way to combat this is to use word verification in the comment’s section. all this means is that you have to type in the letters that you see before you can comment, something that a spam program cannot do. please […]

a little help from my friends…

if i were to try and go legit and get my own site and then posted a select few songs from my own back catalog, would i get slapped with a C&D, or worse, a lawsuit? is it considered illegal if it is just a few songs to showcase an artist or something? does anybody […]

"you go and save the best for last"…

holy crap i forgot about the breakdancers…
