Myspace Stuff for Hip Young Consumers of New Media




First, you should go to Mom's Myspace page and watch a part of their excellent performance at Good Records. The video moves kind of slow (at least it did for me), but the song sounds great. I guess the fact that three of their CDs appear on this week's Good Records Chart indicates that some of the people at the show enjoyed it as much as we did.

And after you finish that, you might want to stop by the Myspace page of Plano's Farah and check out the song "Dancing Girls," which Gorilla vs Bear blogged about just last week. Chris didn't exactly give it a ringing endorsement in his post, but when we learned she was from Plano (and relatively unknown to us), we decided to give it a listen. The music we found on her page was a bit strange to be sure (especially for a local artist), but I was instantly intrigued by the dark, minimal synth production (it kind of sounds like The Knife tricking Alan Braxe and Fred Falke into taking downers and listening to Electroclash) and Farah's lyrical stew of random thoughts, detached teen angst, bizarre journal entries and Farsi. After a few brief Myspace conversations with the singer, we learned that she is currently working with producer Johnny Jewel of Portland's Glass Candy (although its unclear whether he worked on any of the tracks that appear on her Myspace page) and is also collaborating on a project with Wanz Dover. Some of Farah's lyrics struck us as more than a bit silly, but the overall mood created by the contrast between the production, lyrical content and vocal delivery is quite interesting, and at times a lot of fun. Certainly worth listening to.

SR, I hope you don't fall for thinking that Farah is cool just because she is from Plano, and GvsB wrote something about her. Investigate a little bit before you go singing her praises.

When have I ever thought something was cool merely because:

1. It came from Plano OR
2. It appeared on Gorilla vs Bear?

I thought that Farah was pretty cool, especially since it is local and the fact is not much around here sounds like that. And if Johnny Jewel is on that, then I'm down for checking it out. All the Glass Candy and recent Chromatics tracks plus the scant few songs by Channels 3x4 he produced that I have been able to track down are all pretty solid.

Some of that stuff is way to hard to get ahold of... limited 7" eps and shit... go digital so I can download it dammit.

I really wish I could have caught that Mom show... looks like it was good times.

HAHAHAHAHAHA. I totally know about the Darkness incident! I was around for most of her Darkness phase which also included her telling some friends that I must have called Justin from the Darkness to tell him lies. Yeah, I don't get it either.

Also, I remember some of the old Denton boys hiding in some bushes in front of Eric's house because Farah had tracked them down.

She told a friend of mine once that she had moved to Austin. When he asked why then was she at a show in Dallas, she told them "well, I moved to Austin yesterday but decided I didn't like it and moved back today. But while I was there I got a job burlesque dancing and was making $1400 a day."

1. Johnny Jewel not only produced that album with me in Glass Candy's studio in Portland, Oregon he is playing EVERYTHING on those tracks, you can email him at myspace.com/glasscandy.

2.I am from Plano, I currently live in Plano and have lived in Denton on and off for years.

3. Eric Whitworth and I spent last Valentine's day together in granbury where he currently lives, so he doesn't seem to have a problem with me

4. keep in mind this is about music! Investigate the shit out of what you want.

5. The singer for the Darkness who has actually quit the band doesn't have a problem with me, and if you do, I can give you he's email adress, but why should I bother him with my trivial Denton problems. We are both clean now off of drugs, if I have said anything unusual.

6. I am really shocked that none of say this stuff to my face.

7. Wanz Dover is one of my best friends and yeah, we can try to get it on my label italians do it better which is owned by Troubleman unlimited, glass candy and chromatic's label.

8. Sheep stand in line to get eaten by a pack of wolves

9. I was a burlesque dancer in Austin. So is Angela Ryan, Jami Deadly and a handfull of other hot ladies.

10. If you have any problems, feel free to email me at myspace.com/chanelchanelchanelmusic

Ok,

1. This blog and the comments will NOT be erased. We've never erased a comment (other than ads) and never will.

2. I'm asking that people chill out on the personal stories about Farah. Any threats of a lawsuit are completely baseles and off the mark, but in order to avoid headaches and all other kinds of bullshit, I am requesting that people please show some restraint on this topic. Talk shit about me or Farah's music or Glass Candy or whatever all you want, but just lay off the personal stories please. I don't see why any of this caused such a problem in the first place, but just do me a favor, would you?

3. I wrote this post today because I like Farah's music and thought some people might like to hear it to. Not sure how it came to all of this, but that was never the intent.

4. I don't think Farah really sounds like The Knife or Alan Braxe either, but I do think the music sounds like some strange combo of the two, amongst other things. That is what I said in the post.

Mikey,

I'm guessing that Teenage Symphony is your example of a Plano band that we only like because Gorilla Vs Bear posted about them.

The problem with your argument is that we wrote about Teenage Symphony before Gorilla vs. Bear and (to my knowledge) pretty much everyone else in town as well. Check the blogs on their Myspace page. I hate playing the stupid "who posted something first" blogger game, but I'm just stating the facts.

Thank you come again.

After she calmed down, I gave her a ride to Hailey's myself, where I heard she and Justin Hawkins did drugs well into the night.

you guys have made me cry all night and all morning. This is ridiculous. Why are you doing this to me? Let's clear up a few things.

1. I don't have multiple personality disorder and I have no idea where you would think that.

2. That 8 hours there were no personal stories must have been the 8 hours I was asleep.

3. Keith at the doublewide was staring at me. I didn't know who he was. I always dance around and throw money into jukeboxes when I go out. The waitress said, that man wants you to go over there and talk to you. I looked at him and thought he was some creepy dude trying to hit on me. I said no. He got up and grabbed me by the waist, and said come here. I freaked out he grabbed me and shoved me to the door. And shoved me out. I had to stand there forever cause they wouldn't let me back in to get my purse which had my keys in it. My father insisted I tell him the name of the place for a manhandling job.

3. for your information, if we want to get personal here my father has NO MONEY no money at all. That is why I am not in college. TMU and Italians, my record label, is paying for those two albums, we recorded two and I'm supposed to go back in the spring.

4. I have not been kicked out of every venue in town and I have never been kicked out of the cavern.

5. If I am so psycho how can I record an album, get signed, and be in the studio?

6. Someone disses me and then tries to promote bands. I wouldn't go to that show.

7. Thank you Josh,

GLASS CANDY AND CHROMATICS WILL NEVER PLAY RUBBER GLOVES EVER AGAIN

in fact, the canceled february tour was a low key me and them show in Dallas, let's make it

INVITE ONLY

next time.

8. Again, Justin from the Darkness, his brother, and the former bass player don't seem to have a problem with me.

9. I can't believe this is Denton. How dare you guys be nice to my face?

This is just awful. This makes me really sad.

10. If you click on my name, it'll direct you to my myspace page. If you have any questions or problems feel free to email me. If you are actually interested in music, you can download my songs there.

and also, because of farah, I have had the best laugh all day.

farah, you're wackiness, dude, is totally unbelievable. I want to believe you're a diagnosed schizophrenic so badly, but there's such a big part of me that knows it's probably more self induced.

seriously, keep on keepin' on as long as you don't hurt people or scare people too much. just keep it on away from me, cos remember, I don't like that air of yours. and please please please don't put yourself in any sort of spotlight and then whine whine whine about it. it's just so unattractive.

Rubber Gloves has changed a lot in the last year, and there is only one culprit: hate speech.
Hate speech hates you and it hates me.
It has completely killed the once sunny vibe that exsisted inside the confines of RGRS. It has made everyone who works here one step away from snapping, hanging on by a thread, only coping by devouring Xanax, Depakote and Lexapro in superhuman quantities. It's called hate speech, people, and it's a silent and deadly killer. Believe what you hear on the streets, and believe what that little bird told you: it turns out she was WAS right.

Rubber Gloves has changed in the last year. It no longer feels like the same safe place full of love. It's gotten more negative vibey and desperate feeling in Denton. Feels like everybody in that place is one line away from flipping out.
And now the owner is on here basically being a douche and it verifies what I hear on the street.

12:28 PM


are you the same dick cheese that whines that lucky lou's is filled with hateful ungrateful kids and you don't know what happened to the 'scene?' wait, you're probably just a plain ol scrote that uses the word, 'scene' at all. I rest my case. ps, you said "vibey." I hate you.

the only two differences between rgrs then and rgrs now is the byob, alright? that's really the main fundamental difference. I've had fun in both eras, I'm not going to complain. one thing I'll say is that it's always easy to have drinks there and be in the mix or on the wall without a sea of heads flipping to see every time somebody walks in the door like it does at other insecure people hang outs.

Next and most important, a lot of you have no qualms about shitting on josh baish at any chance you get because he owns a venue and has a personality that doesn't try to please every motherfucker, instead of being a girl, a crazy, and a whiney. (<--yeah, I said that, vibey.)

Why is it so easy to say 'fuck yourself, josh' or
'I've been turned down for dates" essentially because of josh? It's easy for you guys cos he owns a fucking venue, and provides a service and a lifestyle for you ungrateful twats, and it's easy to be jealous and yell "you should" (re our conversation, josh ha!) all the time at him. no seriously. the same retards crying in farah's defense are being big fat hypocrites and saying mean shit to josh.

gaw.

josh: offers something that people take advantage of and enjoy. offers a service. you people's fucking personalities are built on dropping the names of most things that go through josh, aight?

farah: is a stage persona. for one person. and whoever goes to her shows.

great. enjoy her stuff, fine, but don't shit on the plate that served her to you first, rubbergloves.

you're welcome, farah, that the only reason why you're even being discussed her today is because you were given a chance to show your "magic" on the rubber gloves stage last year.

I dunno.
Sometimes, It's like "Ah, you We Shot JR people are nothing but a bunch of jerks! You're mean! I hate you all!", and then other times, it's like "Please love me, We Shot JR anonymous poster. Justify my exsistence."

It's like I have bipolar disorder or something. I am repulsed, yet strangely attracted to the attention I receive from someone I may or may not know posting on a message board.

And then there's you, Farah. You, like stonedranger, defensive listening, Michael Chamy, Wanz, Mike Rudnicki, and myself are not afraid to attach our names to the words we type. We are a a brave new breed in the internet age, fearless in an ocean of unidentified strangers. It doesn't matter if you are mentally unstable, never play at Rubber Gloves again, do drugs or think that the singer from The Darkness is hiding under my desk.
All that matters is you, dear Farah.
You.
I feel that I'm falling in love with you.
I'd like to take our relationship to the next level.

Baby, you know that dreams, they're for those who sleep, life is for us to keep. And if I choose the one
I'd like to help me through,
I'd like to make it with you.
I really think that we can make it, girl.

Oh wow Nancy! It's so great to hear from you, even though it's on this Farah playground! I checked out your page, you look cute in your pics! I'm glad I gave you a good laugh and made you feel better! Well I probably am the first musician in rubber gloves history to get signed to a major record label after mailing her producer a tape of her performing at rubber gloves!! Kelly gave me that show after I gave her a demo cd I made. Yes, thanks for the show! Nancy, it's too bad you're scared of me, I have alot of fun in Dallas with Wanz and my friends! I hope you the best! As for rubber gloves, I had no clue who Josh was. I was mad cause he started this fiasco. But I guess it was bound to start somewhere. As for me, I couldn't be happier in life right now. I have everything I could ever dream of having. I was the one who left that Satan comment. I was trying to make fun of you guys! Me and my boyfriend talk like that to each other all the time! But we're cool like that, yeah! It's funny! I was happy that Josh had a sense of humor about it, but I was taken aback when I found out who he was. Rubber gloves is fine. There is nothing wrong with it.

I do have to say, you have formed alot of opinions for not having talked to me in about 4 years. How valid is that!

Wish you the best! Love ya!

-Farah

oh and I gotta check out who this "friend is" thanks for the tip detective Nancy!

For more fun with Farah, read my new music blog

thehotpinks.blogspot.com

and I have a new work in progress band that I have been working on, which JR didn't mention!

This is so much fun!

how can you be SO RIGHT about the first part of your statement, and then go off on some weird personal rant about josh in the second? weirdo!

but kudos for nipping it in the bud with the first part. I agree.



farah, I'm not scared of you per se, but I do make it a point to not really have anything to do with you. it's because you're unstable and I can't really handle that in people. you are a great source of entertainment, though. Don't get me wrong, there are some people that you just plain can't stand, some that give you the heebeejeebees and some that just dont' bother you at all, y'know what I mean? that's always why I've made it clear that I don't mix with you. it's nothing I haven't said to you before.

but after your year book entry, I don't really have to explain much more else do I?

mostly what I get pissed about is people just so easily shitting on josh (or shoot, any other venue or venue employee/owner), and even on you when they say that stabbed in the vagina shit, until you confirmed my suspicions that you wrote it.

shit away.

As for some music news, Italians says that my song "law of life" is going to come out on vinyl, on a record and that's going to be the ONLY song on one side! The other side will be instramental! Kickass!
They want me back in the studio in April too, in Portland which is Glass Candy's studio. GC canceled their tour to go to europe instead, they are working on a CD a real one, that you can buy in stores. Last night me and Wanz were laughing our asses off at this shit at Fall Out. He says someone posted that he puts naked pics of his mom on myspace.

One of the best things about writing this blog is trying to guess which posts will attract tiple digit comments. I don't think I've been right one single time.


My favorite of the bunch is the "this destroys Stonedranger's cedibility" folks. Are you guys the same people that write that every time I post a recommendation/MP3, or do you just not realize that someone posts something like that at least twice a week?

whyyyyy thank you for bringing it up! www.myspace.com/schmancybands

darling, I never said anything about sr's tastes...except to agree that the point of this thread could rather be to question was was worth listening to.

You suggest that a forum be created to discuss what is good or to suggest rather than bash (uh, you're standing on it)....so why does my personal music page on myspace not apply? you call it unlistenable? that I push it? you found it, patty! since you did bring it up, then, let me take this opportunity to invite folks to be my friend! but it's nothing that I consider as a resource for current or social worthy information. heck, I don't even log in everyday. yeah, nothing worth pushing. just a way to get the song I actually want to load on my personal page. yay!

it's a purely selfish page.

yes kill it. Johnny has a concept for Farah like he does for GC mirage and chromatics. these are 4 diff bands that he has. I wrote those lyrics. Also, I put them to music, mail it to him ahead of time and he writes the music either based on the music I wrote, following the rhythm of my vocals becuase yes, I do sing sometimes, like "the only one" is based on the phrase run run run run run run run and the music is based on the way that sentence flows. Baby girl, Johnny wrote that song, the music entirely, and I added the lyrics. We co-wrote those songs. Oh I am just so tired and worn out.

Wow! I was just looking for some info - and more songs - from Farah and there's all this abuse of her.

I suppose you either "get" what she's trying to do or you don't and some the saddos who don't have no idea how to deal with her apart from juvenile crap and just plain bullying of a young woman. I suppose it's because they feel threatened by a woman who doesn't fit the usual stereotypes of these wankers.

FWIW: The music isn't so much original - there have been others - as rare and as people say, intense. You get the feeling she means it, whatever it is she means.

Good luck Farah and if you are annoying the vermin who write rubbish about you (rather than being yet another clone of their fantasies), then you must be doing something right.

Oh, and come to Europe - you'll be more appreciated here!

FWIW:
