IT'S WHEN YOU NEED HELP
THAT YOUR LIFE IS LAID BARE

i love that these search terms keep leading people to this site:
"big booty black girls in tight pants"
"beat downs"
"Condoleezza's Gorgeous Legs"

dope sh*t.

and f*ck yeah.

and how in the hell could a public speaker like this guy lose to the babbling blundering buffoon Bush? oh right, cheating. i'll give the republicans this, whoever sat them all down and explained to them that developing technologies (surveillance, electronic voting, etc) would soon become their best friend and biggest advantage was handing them the golden goose.

one thing i kinda like about this site is that i do not have any predetermined theme that i have to stick to. i just post what i happen to like at a particular moment. and so today we are getting a taste of Social Distortion. mainstream punk band from the 90s, but damn they are good. sometimes there is absolutely nothing better than tight fast driving punk tunes. and this morning, as i plodded to work severely late due to my alarm being powerless against me, this song came on and seemed a rather perfect fit for my sentiments from the past few weeks. hope ya like it.

• Social Distortion - Angel's Wings (Acoustic)


buy music, especially independent.

    Social D has been around since the early eighties.
    I was'nt sure if you were just bringing up their mainstream success of the 90's, but doode
    Mommy's Little Monster, SoCal suburban alienation at its best, from, Like, '83!
    And you have to see Another State of Mind, if you have'nt yet, a video doc about SoCal punk bands goin on tour. Spreading the DIY ethic. Totally ridiculous look at a group of young punk kids in a bus touring, but totally classic.
    Mike Ness (of social distortion) admits to the camera a list of bad sitcoms he watches everyday!
    anyhow, im a punk dork.

    and i was wondering if there was a car the VR collective could borrow to dumpster Grub tonight.
    I KNOW we are not promoting it so well, cos there was aLOT of confusion about this weekend, alas, we ARE doing it.

    lastly, Tod you are wonderful,
    thanks for the "hot sh*t" !!!super sweet

  3. sigh. . . i know social d is older than the 90s. but i'm not giving history lessons here (maybe you should be filling that gap, mr. punk history 101?). i mentioned the 90s cause that was when they hit their peak, hence most people would remember who i was talking about. i guess i need a disclaimer on here, like "any and all info can be incorrect and/or untrue at any point due soley at the discression of the guy writing it." i don't know why people always think i know what i'm talking about anyway.

    that documentary sounds like fun though. you got a copy?

    and the bands before
    they had their noses in the air
    pretending that they cared
    about our scene
    just because our moneys green!

    i tell you stage dives
    make me feel more ALIVE!
    than coded messages
    IN SLOWED DOWN SONGS!"
