Weekender

I don't know what any of you lame asses did for NYE, but I had a blast and I hope you did too. I'm still kind of recovering from it all, but shit, it's the weekend, and I'll totally keep rockin' in 09'. The scene waits for no man, my man. This one doesn't have a lot of commentary as we've decided to pretty much take the rest of this week off, but we'll be rested and ready to go with more 2008 year end coverage starting Monday, so stay tuned.  PS-- we wanted to thank everyone for reading and making 2008 the biggest and best year we've had so far.  Here's to another year of pissing off the people in Dallas who think they run shit:

FRIDAY

Cassettes On Fire/Jubilee/La Dispute/Sohns/Zwounds (1919 Hemphill)

Mount Righteous (Space Studio): We're Sgt. Freedman's cutesy indie band, and we hope our moms enjoy the show.  

Uptown Fridays with Select (Zubar):  Stop by for an education on old school house, disco and all things 90's dance.  

Laptop Deathmatch (the Lounge): Tonight is the Dallas regional competition.  

Broadcast Sea/Decades/Dark Forces (Rubber Gloves)

Warren Jackson Hearne/Wino Vino/Little Rosie's Revenge (Hailey's)

SATURDAY

The Measure/Acts Of Sedition/Sacred Shock/Dark Forces (Exploding House)

Strike A Pose (Green Elephant): This is a collaboration between Unit One and Central Booking to celebrate Select's birthday, featuring DJ sets from Select, Keith P and Vega (Alan Palomo).  Should be the place to be in Dallas on Saturday.    

Damaged Goods/Headkrack/Picnic Tyme/Klick Klack (The Lounge)


SUNDAY

Will Kapinos/Ashley Cromeens/Starhead/Gigi Foster/Jason Ashbaugh (Dan's)

Blueberry Fist/Hope Killed Trust/Alex Atchley (the Lounge)

From reading other local publications big and small it's pretty obvious that Weshotjr has a better, more informed, and more articulate say about things than any other tastemakers around here. Hell, the big publications write about shit they wouldn't have even heard of if Weshotjr didn't tell them it was ok to write about it.

During this time I have been a practicing Christian, practicing Vaishnava and a celibate monk for 12 years. My understanding of the 'occult' powers has little to do with my love of God. One of the things that is mind-expanding about the Vedic teachings is the absence of 'Satan' as a figure. One chapter in the Bhagavad Gita is called "The Divine and Demoniac Natures." These are recognized but not set up as a battle, more of advice for elevation of the soul. I knew the successor to Alistair Crowley, his name was Tom Driberg M.P. He was introduced to me through friends of George Harrison. When he discovered that my parents lived in his constituancy, he invited us to the Town Hall for an International Folk Dancing Festival. I was sitting in the Mayors Box on the left, with Tom Driberg on my right, then my mother and next my father on the far right. Tom Driberg would be leaning to his right and telling my mother how they were building bridges and highways, and then turning to me (in my monks robes) and telling me how he was Alistair Crowley's successor and descibes how he initiated Mick Jagger and Marrianne Faithful into all the Black Magic rights. (Paint it Black - Under my Thumb - Goat's Head Soup - Sympathy for the Devil) etc. The whole time trying to grab my crotch! Unabashedly gay. When he died they discovered that he was a Russian Double Agent. So the dark side exists and has its servants, as does the light side. From all my studies, the light wins out and the dark mentalities fade into dust. My Guru said that "In his next life President Johnson took birth as a one-celled ameoba and lived 'that' long!" (The click of his fingers). There's a reality check for you...what happens to the truly evil. The power of truth is that if you only speak the truth - whatever you say becomes true. That is a curse. This is what is meant by 'hidden' or 'secret' knowledge. (Now revealed to you readers who with this knowledge have now become part of 'the occult') In 1969 I led the excorcism of a Royal Ghost on John & Yoko's Estate - Tittenhurst, that had a house built for it. It wasn't a bad ghost, just stuck in that form. Most people are amazed at the occult. To me it is just a part of life and a valuable part. In most old cultures, men attaining manhood went through some occult ritual to introduce them to their spiritual side. For American Indians it is Payote, in South America it is Ayuwaska, etc. This is missing in the west, except for personal 'unsupervised' journeys into consciousness through the use of Magic Mushrooms or LSD etc. said...

Like you and he both said "Never get into a discussion about religion with a fundamentalist Christian, because it`s a hopeless thing. You will never get your point across to them because in their mind, they are never wrong, and anything you have to say, no matter how wise it is, will fall on deaf ears, because to them, you are either possed by Satan, or it`s pure nonsense. And all because what you say does not fit in, or follow their Bible." So for years I didn`t discuss it. Until one evening I had a man knock at my door. He was the pastor of a local church trying to get people to come to his services. I let him in, and that`s when it all started. We talked for a bit after introductions, and then he quoted a verse from his Bible, and wanted to know what I thought of it. Well, i told him my version of it, and he looked at me in a funny way. Again he quoted a verse, and again I told him my version. This went on for a while, and he finally looked at me and asked "do you own a Bible?", I told him I did, and he asked if he could see it. So I went and got it, then showed it to him. I had noticed that everytime i would tell him my version he would check it with his book to see if it followed what the book said. After he looked at my Bible, he then looked at me and said "well, how can you interpret it like that, when it`s written in plain English right here word for word?". I said "look, think about it for a minute, your talking about something that was written almost two thousand years ago, in a different culture and in a different language and was meant for people who had liittle or no education at that time, and then was translated into different languages how many different times from that point on?'. Well it went further then that but, anyway, he said "well, I need to go back home and think about all the things you said and check them out with the good book". He asked me if i would allow him to come back and discuss it further. I told him no problem. He asked me what I thought about how he interpreted the book. I told him i had no problem what so ever in his version of it, that we are all free to think and believe as we want. He said"would you think about my interpretation of it?" I told him I was open minded enough to do that. He was the first of four to discuss it with me, and each time, they wanted me to be open minded enough to think about their version of it, never the other way around. It`s not that I am out to knock someone elses way of thinking, because they are free to think how they want. But, what bothers me, is, we always have to be the open minded ones because from their view point, we don`t know any better, never the other way around. We are not to have a closed mind to their belief, but it`s ok for them to have a closed mind to ours. Well for those who think i`m wrong, yes, I do believe in God, I just don`t take everything written in the Bible literally like some do. said...

but cmon, the reason anyone reads this blog is the inflammatory and controversial opinions and rants by anonymous posters. Like someone used the word tastemaker in reference to this site, that was hilarious. This site is about anonymous jokesters, they are the stars here. It is certainly not because the people who "run" this blog provide any good content, regardless of how superior they think their tastes are, and you can find out about shows anywhere. I've always found people who hold thier preferences to be superior to othes to be petty and tasteless, so i get a laugh from the write ups sometimes, but I wonder how many other sites like this there actually are in DFW anyway, and really for the size of this metroplex it doesnt appear that there are really that many people who pay attenion to this place.
