A Bloody Mess: WHAT WAS THE FIRST BASS LINE YOU... →
oldtobegin: bigcrush: Over the weekend a friend made a random joke about MXPX. I laughed and was like, “okay, but I can’t hate. MXPX was responsible for the first bass line I ever learned…” At the same time we both immediately blurted: “CHICK MAGNET!” Turns out it was his first bass… Mine was either “She’s Lost Control” or “In The Meantime” by Spacehog....
my pitchfork schedule
I can’t get to the NSF website to finish my ALA slides, so I’ll post this instead. All of this is of course subject to if I decide I like some other band better, or if I randomly run into someone I know from KRLX and decide to hang out with them for a while (which happens roughly every other Pitchfork so I’m due this year). Incidentally I’ll be in town Thursday night for...
Will be up to 66% after ALA this weekend (hello, Louisiana). I thought about driving there so I could grab Mississippi and Alabama as well but that’s not happening. visited 32 states (64%) Create your own visited map of The United States

our team name was “Garrett Says Relax” (Garrett runs trivia night on Wednesdays) and at halftime he played “Relax” which I like to think was a direct response to our name, and if it was it was one of my greatest triumphs of living here

A Bloody Mess: Thought Part 3 →
abloodymess: An old friend from high school posted on his facebook that he was at Q101’s Jamboree! (check out that lineup). That is Chicago’s alt-rock radio station. It got me thinking of people from my past who stopped finding music. Like their entire musical identity was set in fucking stone at age 15…. Q101 Jamboree was the very first show I ever went to, back in 2000 when I was 17...
british football clubs i support and why
Celtic: Partly because I’m a sheep of an Irish-American who will support anything with the tri-color on it, but mostly because I first started seriously following soccer again in 2003, which coincided with their run to the UEFA Cup final (and, sadly, with the rise of Mourinho as history’s greatest genius). Before that I might have been just another lacking-in-imagination Yank who...
