“There cannot be a happy ending to the fight between the raging gods and humans. However, even in the middle of hatred and killings, there are things worth living for. A wonderful meeting, or a beautiful thing can exist. We depict hatred, but it is to depict that there are more important things. We depict a curse, to depict the joy of liberation. What we should depict is, how the boy understands the girl, and the process in which the girl opens her heart to the boy. At the end, the girl will say to the boy, “I love you, Ashitaka. But I cannot forgive humans.” Smiling, the boy should say, “That is fine. Live with me.”—Hayao Miyazaki [pitching the proposal for Mononoke-hime (1997)] (via hayao-miyazaki)
i spent a while thinking about this and it’s seriously too hard to pick just one. when i think i’ve got it, i end up feeling bad for the records i neglected, ya know?? sorry for the copout answer, anonymous friend. my most prized record of this month however is mindset’s ‘time & pressure’ EP. i have listened to it almost every morning since i got it. it feels like it is making all the sick-cunt parts of my brain grow bigger and stronger. yew.
Lethal talks shit on Springa like he is some kind of clown, yet it was Barile who played in a nu-metal band that covered Backstreet Boys while wearing a glitter shirt. Between the two of them who fell the hardest into the pits of sickening moral conduct?
al keeps his edge over springa. ‘gage’ is pretty bad, but being a deadshit junkie is worse. refer to:
"There is absolutely no truth to any speculation that SSD will be performing this summer. The fact is original vocalist David Spring "Springa" is assembling a band of hired guns to tour and rip off the public playing under the name SSD. Due to his selfish actions David Spring has officially been terminated from ALL association with the band SSD. His attempt to recreate SSD in 2008 will utterly fail and I hope the public will not attend his performances and if they do they make it as miserable as possible for him to remain on stage safely. I know I personally will make every attempt to make him pay for his corrupt, cheating selfish actions. SSD will always be a team with integrity. It’s unfortunate that a fat overweight "has been" and "nobody" will try to fool the public under the mighty moniker SSD.
His overall contribution to what made SSD such a special band is so far under the radar and almost next to zero. Anybody intimately involved and close to the band understands his contribution. The real fact is that the band had to go out of its way to compensate for his talent, work ethic and criminal behavior.
I feel bad for those fans who have been waiting for a chance to see the band but attending this Dave Springa performance is a travesty and borderline criminal. He is a terrible human being and I’m not just saying this now. He is basically the reason the band dissolved. Our relationship has been civil since we stopped playing but clearly after then band dissolved his musical and organizational ability pretty much guaranteed his ability to get to get zero accomplished. He couldn’t write a song if it fell in his lap. Having said that, I have been monitoring this potential SSD ripoff roadshow for sometime and I have done my best to discourage it through various legal and illegal tactics. I have actually held off some royalties and payments to hold over his head and help him make the right decision.
He is basically following the business model laid out by Cliff from the Freeze, Chris Doherty from Gang Green, Choke from Slapshot. I can only speculate but I believe their motives are clear. I hate to throw anybody under the bus but I’m sure this support system of 40 year olds living in the past has helped David Spring organize the tour.
1) Rip off the public as 40 plus year-olds playing music made by kids and capitalize on American Hardcore Movie.
2) Make enough money to buy their alcohol, drugs and coke and whatever else.
3) Pounce on as many foreign chicks who think these American punk rock stars are special and give them 20 year old pussies. Hopefully they will give them something else as well.
4) Escape their miserable lives and US wifes and girlfriends to pursue their sexual fantisies.
5) Hopefully come back to US with enough money so they can collect unemployment and continue their life avoiding a disciplined work schedule in which you wake up and go to work. They will repeat the cycle every two years.
If it wasn’t for my efforts, Springa would have justified this plan and pulled this shit sooner. It seems like he might pull it off this time but I am a fucking fighter and I don’t take well to people ripping me off and tarnishing the name of my band. I am assemblng a network of supporters who will help do everything possible to make him uncomfortable and fearful for his safety at each show. If he gets close to the Boston or New York area then I will execute the plan. My goal is to make the tour fall apart due to poor attendance, hopefully get the promotors to back off after my legal representative serve papers. I would also appeal to the general public to understand when they are getting ripped off and for them to NOT BELIEVE that this lineup is SSD. It’s just a fat overweight scumbag breaking ranks from the band. He must be stopped.
Please share this letter to anybody or any punk rock news outlet. It’s time to put a stop to these rogue motherfuckers who have no integrity. Anyone who can help make David Spring’s life miserable will be on my list of close friends who I will be entirely indebted to and hopefully I can repay the favor somehow.
Raybeez loved Skrewdriver and bashed fags, yet is still adored like an idol in mainstream hardcore circles, can you explain this conundrum?
LOL. is this one of those tumblr girls that just post about like anoorchhyy and trashtalkceremonyz and pics of smelly crustie shitcunts and shit? how is it it a conundrum? if it is not plain to see why raybeez is loved then you are a posedogg. what a shit question. ps- the first skrewdriver album rules. pps- on ‘homophobia’ in the early NYHC:
HF: Yeah. “Corruption and faggots all around me…” “I’m looking around and what do I see / Corruption and faggots all around me.” And that’s a statement coming from a teenager in New York, and it’s true ‘cause everywhere you look you see total corruption. You see people living in burnt-out buildings, people sleeping on the street, and there’s the guy driving by in a Cadillac. And then over here, there’s two rich upper-class American faggots walking through this poor neighborhood, and they’re like paying thousands of dollars for this little bummy apartment, you know, making the rent shoot up. No, I don’t respect that. Yeah, corruption and faggots are all around us.
is it just me or is that ‘fuck yeah straight edge’ tumblr just the worst shit ever.. the straight edge is clearly the coolest shit ever, so why does the gronk that runs it just post pictures of posedoggs with atrocious tattoos? where are the boston crew photos and brotherhood’s THE DEAL being played in a continuous loop? over a thousand followers - good clean fun / seventh dagger / cm punk fans i guess? o lawd.
