Zac Crain for mayor? What a joke! Just what Dallas needs, another useless writer from the observer in office. Hey Zac, if you are going to run for mayor, why don't you try to speak up when the mic is in your hands, instead of sounding like you're scared.

Wow, and that Larz guy from Undoing looks like a really bad wanna be Ziggy Stardust... All in all, that award ceremony was just a load of shit. And Zac Crain can just crawl back to the land of bad writing for the Dallas Observer and give up the quest for Mayor. What a joke.

Man, I'm glad you approve of one of the winners of the doma. They're so much different from everyone else in dallas. playing buzz oven. playing with fair to midland. they are one step removed from any cheesy deep ellum band, they just claim better influences and are on a good label. did you read the pitchfork write-up about them today? scariest band in america or whatever? I do find heavy handed lyrics and cheap local looking artwork "scary" but not in the way you'd expect. the scariest thing congleton is doing is recording the new polyphonic spree album. I guess he likes paychecks more than respect but judging by how most dallas bands conduct themselves, that's no surprise. I guess he figured, "albini recorded bush and veruca salt, maybe I should record the shittiest band of my generation." good job. and the denton rock city people hate this website because it's not a bunch of their drinking buddies slapping them on the back and congratulating every thing they fucking do. typical drc banter:

"dude, today I bought some falafel and shit."

"awesome, man I love that shit. last time I did that I got really wasted and I wrote a metal/country song. wanna start a band?"

"yeah, just come next door. I can see you typing from here."

one more thing:congleton announcing his unfriendliness makes me feel that much better about my limitless hate for that band. I don't think he knows what unfriendly is. Unfriendly is not being neck deep in the worst dfw has to offer, whether it be ex-One ton records people or the poly-fucking-phonic-fucking-spree.

Oh damn yeah I totally read about that in the Dallas Morning News! They had a front page article describing the innovative and Xtreme(!) style of partying of those individuals. Before I heard about them my idea of partying was drinking Bartle's and James' and listening to "This Is How We Do It" by Montel Williams over and over until I got sleepy. They straightened my ass out.

All these two-cent opinions about Congleton's paychecks and RESPECT or whether someone is "experimental" or not... how endlessly sterile. Apparently, every musician in Dallas is either a masterful Beethoven or a money-hungry replica of Creed.

I think you people like to hear yourselves argue. Why not just seek out good music and be a little more realistic?

Watch out anonymous, my wife will kick your ass. She broke a glass on some bitch's face in IHOP once.

And who is Ziggy Stardust? I was just trying to impress the Dallas Hip Hop All Stars with my krunk jacket. One of 'em said it was fresh.

We were more than happy to lose to the pAperchAse (and would have been happy to lose to Tree Wave or The Angelus too.) Even though I had a whole sermon prepared.

Really disappointed Fishboy lost, though.

I think it is unfortunate, the amount of silly scenester dumbness that is soon to occur. Good bands in Dallas, Good bans in Denton, Good friends in Dallas, Good friends in Denton, and because of a handful of internet posts that bored people make at work, people are about too look really stupid. Of course, the anonymous will fair slightly better, not revealing their names. Everybody is an easy target.

The intimate nature of Denton Rock City lends itself to familiarity. It's 20 people who have known each other for years. There's nothing wrong with a time-waster among friends... Until it is linked to a place like weshotjr, where faceless peeps, under the guise of constructive criticism, and out of their own boredom, can be as hateful as they want in their commentary of people they might like in the real world.

Anybody still even read the itlist? Or are the comment threads the real draw here, seeing how nasty it can get? I guess when there's 100 posts about how sucky everything and everybody is and the it list says to read a book, the answer is pretty easy to figure out.

The drc sounded especially bitter the last 2 days. I just made a joke about their familiar banter. I didn't try to start a war. Their gang mentality won't let a joke go unpunished, I guess. And I always read the Itlist.

i don't get why the drc people have bad mouthed dallas for so long on their site,but as soon as they get a little criticism about their behaviors we are the fucked up ones? it's good it was called out..about time everybody just shut the fuck up about where you live.i just wished this many people cared to show up and support each other's music

The new pAperchAse is probably pretty good. Congleton played a show in Dec. at the Sanctuary with URTU, Malise and the Chimeneas, so let him make a buck off Tim & the Spree if he wants. Apparently they only charge $10,000 a performance if they're playing benefits. Congleton has done enough solid stuff to earn a buck or two. As long as he continues to support worthwhile local music, fine.

But I agree why have an experimental category if it's filled w/ bands who are not experimental at all?

Blogger stonedranger said...

because I'm tired:

1. I like Paper Chase, and although I was rooting for Undoing, I don't see any problem with them winning. Even if you aren't crazy about them, they couldn't possibly be on the top of anyone's "things that suck about dallas" list, could they?

2. The other day, I saw someone dissing WSJR on Denton Rock City, and I went on there and jabbed back a little. It started a bunch of crap with me and some kid on there, and I just went over there and said I wasn't going to post anymore. I honestly don't know who any of those people are, and I guess I really don't care.

Thats it and thats all

The tension is funny.

Falafel is funny.

Arguing on the internet is the funniest.

Everyone got their internet feelings hurt.

Whether it's Dallas or Denton, it's still part of the fakest metroplex on the planet. There's no culture here, not enough to support anything other than boob jobs and big business.

My scene is SO much better than your scene. Oh wait your scene is 25 miles from my scene? Let's fight.

.....i'm all for anonymity, so, apparently is this site... this site isn't about having the "balls" to say who you are... it's about being able to say what you feel like saying w/o someone getting personal w/ you or saying something like "i've never even heard of you, so your opinion doesn't matter"

....if i post anonymously, it's not b/c im scared of backlash once people find out who i am... it's b/c my name would mean NOTHING to most people on this site

if you don't know who i am then you can't write me off as a nobody or a know-nothing just b/c of my NAME (which has been done by people responding to those who choose NOT to be anonymous many times).

...i become equal to every other anonymous poster that there is...

i don't loose arguments to those who are "more knowledgeable" just b/c some fuck recognises a name

...i dont' care if you work at good records, work sound at the cavern, or live in denton w/ 5 roommates w/ 5 equaly well-grown beards.... it's all the same to me
