Glyph is worse than some and better than others. He believes that life is just one damned thing after another, that only pop music can save us now, and that mercy is the mark of a great man (but he's just all right). Nothing he writes here should be taken as an indication that he knows anything about anything.

    Small crowd tonight, but fun. I think the Loaf didn’t go over well, but hey, you can’t win ’em all.Report

    Oh man, Archers of Loaf. Blast from the past.

    Sorry I couldn’t make it. People who haven’t been to one of these yet are missing out.Report

      How’s R’s mom? Any change?

      I went through a period where I listened to Wipers’ “Youth of America” as my first song every morning. Very bracing.

      In fact, I’m doing it now.

      I seriously can’t recommend the boxset of their first three records highly enough, if you have any interest in American punk/hardcore/underground guitar music. Very cheap (around $20 for 50+ tracks), a lot of songs that will stick in your head, and Sage is just a monster on the guitar (not just the actual playing, but tone/effects/sonic stuff). That they are not as well-known as many other bands is a shame.

    Sorry I missed it. I got a last minute invite to my neighbors’ wine and cheese party for the people on our block, and I decided to go meet the people that live near me. Now I am an actual person, and not just that weird guy down the block with the two dogs.Report
