While I’m...
tmbgareok: Just received the replacement copy of Them Ain’t Big Eye Ants. Thanks for caring enough to do that for all of us, I’m sure it set profits back a good amount. Also included was a free copy of The Spine Surfs Alone! You guys really go above and beyond. Thank you so much. Looks like we all got different stuff for an extra. Very cool!

tmbgareok: In November of 2011, I went to a TMBG show at the Fillmore in San Francisco, and was lucky enough to be in the front row. My mom was terminally ill at the time, and told me that “Can’t Keep Johnny Down” had become kind of an anthem for her, so it was a bit of an emotional concert for me to… This is just another example of the band that treats their fans better than any...

My social obligations have greatly increased lately. I’ve been casually drinking more often in the last few weeks than in the last eight months combined.
The Ear of the Beholder
3 bands I can’t stand that if someone mentions that they’re their favorite band, I think much, much less of that person: Aerosmith, The Doors, Kiss* Three bands/artists that I’ll admit have some musical talent but I still don’t like and also think less of you for calling them your favorite: Bruce Springsteen, Van Halen, The Eagles 3 bands I used to like a little but...
