Futile expeditions to the edges of good taste, bad morals, and ugly intententions. Late night drives somewhere between Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle and The White Castle of Fear.
Second Hand Pop, MIDI grunge soundalikes, and uncanny Japanese karaoke.

guten morgen
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46am Darren:

Good morning everyone, hope you all are doing well!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48am Andrew Waterloo:

I had a room booked for a couple days in Toronto because I had tickets for three shows over three consecutive days. Most of that money came back to me and went into Bandcamp, the rabbit rescue, and the food bank. My cancelled trip to FIMAV was converted to vinyl.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50am VincentNifigance:

Hi Darren-Gang.
Avatar 3:51am craplivion:

david boring has a live video on youtube of the i cant song.its funny to watch because its called i cant at live brawl.and its the most relaxed punk mosh ive ever seen
Avatar 3:54am fred:

I totally forgot about the bandcamp day, sadly. I chose not to get any money back for canceled shows, hopefully most of that goes to support the artists (I know some does, how much seems to depend)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57am Andrew Waterloo:

@Fred.. this was a cancelled hotel room.. I don't normally stay in Toronto.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58am Jim the Poet:

I think they're doing the bandcamp promo a couple more times
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59am Darren:

yeah, they are doing it in June and July
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03am Jim the Poet:

i love night court too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04am VincentNifigance:

@Jim the Poet: Thank you for your service, as always.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04am Jim the Poet:

it's my pleasure. The FMU overnight shows are great
Avatar 4:11am craplivion:

is this the singer that came out with you spin me right around?
Avatar 4:16am fred:

@craplivion: Yeah, it reminded me of Dead or Alive too. By the way, there's a pretty fun literal video of You Spin Me Round: www.youtube.com...
Avatar 4:24am craplivion:

what a pain to google the band model t to see if its the same singer.lots of ford crap
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27am Fox:

Digging this.
Avatar 4:29am craplivion:

fred.thanx for the crazy funny parody
Avatar 4:31am craplivion:

i allways hated you spin me right around since the first day it came out in 1984.and that parody was a payoff for the torture of that song
Avatar 4:34am craplivion:

the last show with keyliegh,peeps got on the subject of parodies.and someone asked whats so funny about parodies.i say if done right.poetic justice and comic relief reward
Avatar 4:47am fred:

@craplivion: I think my favorite literal video is the one for Total Eclipse of the Heart
Avatar 4:52am craplivion:

i got to checkit out.ive necer seen these literal parody videos.

Avatar 5:37am holland oats:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41am Darren:

Ariel rivals R Stevie himself as a virtuoso of home recording, those early tapes were so influential, people are still trying to catch up with that guy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41am chaos_in_la_la:
