Dude. Next time I am in Seattle I will go to any punk rock show with you, any time. I am way into that shit and am pissed at current representation by terrible bands like No Age and Japandroids. I am giving you permission to use force.
Please let me know when you are coming back. I will try to force the issue and pull as many strings as I can (which are flimsy at best)

That game felt so damn good tonight. I have been having a fit over here about our recent form. We have been winless in the last 7 games. Loved seeing the fire/passion tonight. Yeah, so our keeper got a red card. Big whoop. Hahnemann is to Gspurning is the same as Jackson is to Wilson. #hashtagsareforidiots #soundersfc and #hashtagsareforidiots #Seahawks have the best backups in the business. (Burrito, those hashtags were for you )

That is awesome dude. I love when record labels show good customer service. I have had nightmares in the past dealing with issues like that. Modular didn’t send me two copies of Tame Impala - Innerspeaker when I ordered it initially (getting one for myself and one for my brother-in-law). I checked my statement and they did charge me for two copies. I only received one. I attempted to get a response from them for over 3 months. Not one time did I get a response. I finally just ate it because it wasn’t worth the stress/effort. Temporary Residence sounds like they are some top notch people.

This is the blub from his bandcamp regarding this Halloween music: “i’ve wanted to do a halloween themed, guitar-based ambient record for a long time now. there have been a couple times that i’ve started working on the idea but either got distracted with other musical things or just overwhelmed with the thought of actually finishing the project and being happy with it. on the surface it sounds silly to feel stressed out over recording some weird sounds and then stringing them together, but for me it wasn’t an easy process. halloween is really special for me. i worked the seasonal shift at party city for years- into my late twenties- surrounded by clueless 16 year old first-jobbers, just to be inundated with the spirit of the holiday. i’d heard lots of “halloween sounds” recordings over the years. it was important to make this recording a conscious and focused effort. in other words, it’s not just me hitting record and then farting around on my pedals. there was a lot of thought put into every sound createdevery single sound on the recording came from a guitar- albeit a very processed guitar, but 100% guitar. my dream would be for people to play this on their porch to scare the shit out of trick or treaters, or at haunted houses or parties. anything halloween related. not everyone is into noisy, ambient records, but ALMOST everyone is into halloween!”

Last Friday I went to Gaytheist, Helms Alee and Red Fang in Bellingham. The bands were all great as usual but it got a little out of hand. Everyone was rocking out hard during Red Fang. Pushing back and forth. Semi-moshing but not really. Fun stuff. A guy to my right was one of those people that has to have his arms around his girlfriend at all times. He was not liking the pushing that was going on and was starting to be a huge dick. Everybody was doing the same thing but this guy. He started kicking at my shins and that was pretty irritating. I started pushing back towards him a little harder and the next thing I knew my hoodie was being pulled back. I didn’t know what was going on. I couldn’t breath and it straight up started tearing (a fucking hoodie!). I almost went to the ground and then the tugging stopped. I turned around and saw someone on the ground and helped him up. My brother and friend were trying to Dr. Garbanzoure out what happened. I didn’t know what the hell happened but assumed that it was the guy kicking me’s friend or something. I was pretty furious and left a little early because I didn’t want to ruin the rest of the show for others. I had ligature marks on my neck until yesterday! The more I think about the strength I was being pulled by the more I think the guy that I helped up fell and grasped onto my hoodie to try and stop himself from falling.
Sorry for the rambling. Really great shows by all three bands though. Great crowd vibes (minus my little experience above).

Thinking about going to Grenades, Tacos! and Bali Girls tonight @ The Shakedown (Bellingham). Tomorrow night Federation X is playing at Green Frog (Bellingham). This is great because Green Frog generally only books country/blue grass stuff and they have one of the best beer selections in town. Can’t wait to go to a rock show there
