I won't take back what I wrote because I feel that it needed to be said.

I dismiss your work because your attitude towards others has given me the right to.

You haven't done anything to harm me personally, but I feel that you have harmed the community.

On the old message board you were rude and discouraging to other musicians that were new to the board. This kind of behavior doesn't sit well with me and is also what disappoints me the most about this board and the punk community in general.

* I also don't feel you deserve your own thread just because your friends with the moderator, but whatever.  I hope you understand where I am coming from. Peace.

i don't have any specific memory of an instance like this. my memories of the board include being the moderator of the tour section and specifically helping all sorts of bands get shows, as well as booking a ton wherever i lived. i don't believe i have ever made a habit of talking down to anyone who plays music on a message board, especially this one where i have been active in the community for 12 or more years and have made a ton of friends through it.

i am truly sorry if i am forgetting an instance where i was mean to a new person, but i truly believe you've either mixed me up with someone, or have a distorted memory concerning this.

regardless, your tone and aggression in your original post is unwarranted and unnecessary. solving problems comes from a good, consistent line of communication. i am happy to foster that, but you've been hostile and accusatory without any real facts being presented. this doesn't really present any reason for me to treat you, nor your accusations, with respect... but here i am trying to do so because i want a better understanding of what upset you.

as for the thread about my music, jer covered it in his last message. as previously stated i have been involved in this community for a long time, and furthermore have rarely used it as a platform to promote what i have been doing. this thread was to share something i have been working on for a long time with a group of people i feel comfortable around, and it seems you are the only person who is taking issue with me using it as such.

i like the music a lot. keep it up. if you play a show anywhere near new york city let me know and i'll be there with buckets of goats blood and a copy of the necronomicon that you can sign for me afterwards.

I'm definitely interested in how this fucking nonsense plays out...

well the record is 38m07s long, so itll play out rather slowly and drawn out.

Fuck your new band. You're an asshole.

while you're more than entitled to your opinion, and i have definitely been a weird and shitty person at times in my history, that type of aggression and personal attack isn't something that's very welcome around here. you'd know that if you took part in the community here more than just posting your own music. furthermore, your own website says you don't play with anyone who is mean spirited, maybe consider how mean spirited you are currently being. please don't do that again.

if i've done something to personally offend or harm you, i offer you my sincerest apologies and feel free to personal message me if you'd like to talk about it or work it out.

My band has to get their IDs in order / make sure legal troubles are behind them before entering Canada, so I'm not sure if my main band is ever gonna make it out there, unfortunately. I really want to play in Ontario, everyone I know who has played over there has had a good time.

we definitely do have some rad shows. i really like that each small town has their own unique scene, you could do a 2 week tour and never drive more than 45ish minutes.

This sounds really really cool, kw. If ya ever need a show in Kalamazoo, MI let me know!

thanks rory! we'd definitely like to make it out to michigan (especially since we're not far from ya at all!) come play in ontario sometime as well!
lacking is probably the proper term, there are a plethora of heavy queer/feminist bands, but not a ton in the slow and heavy department.

watched episode 1, the first 5 minutes had me giddy. stoked on this series, it could go so many cool places
hey rory,

are the only places you're looking for ideas ending in question marks? everything with just a city name and no annotation i am assuming is well on its way? i'll lend a hand where i can.

playing music and focusing on starting my new job. both have been really healthy and rad lately. it is the first time in years i've really enjoyed writing songs and playing shows, which takes a lot of specific focus. and my new job is at an amazing vegan restaurant in town and the owners are amazing people and i just really wanna kill it. woo.

i don't think kw is much in to punk music, is the issue.

the older i get, the more i realize how much i just generally dislike the genre.
though, in fairness, i even tried propagandhi's more recent way more metal stuff, and couldn't get into it at all.
