How much does alternative music have to suffer before it gets a reprise or rennaisance?

I distinctly felt the shock of 9/11 as the aftermath made being Catholic a little more miserable and made Islam boring, still, but much heavier than marlyn Manson. So we took a back seat to American Idol for several years and turned the industry into a Fucking lotto ticket. Disillusioned, I pursued college. Considering how Pete didn't wanna be Pete anymore, I put my private-music school education on the back burner of jazz comping and earned a degree in law so I can be as paranoid of a paranormal paralegal as possible. I'm up in Connecticut, so you can only imagine how much they love me (John Mayer from Fairfield, really John First selectman, man he sucks serious retarded.cock). Dave Grohl took over the rock scene, and roadrunner records sold its soul on Nickelbag.. how does he do three part harmonies live like that? That man must be Jesus himself. Big wampum for roadrunner.

Nothing. No sub culture. Everyone's petrified to interact face to face so we all dumb down to this strict straight or gay guideline. Well I'm Roman, and an Applegate, so my English says never for unlawful carnal knowledge, and my Catholic says "huh?"

APHND is catchy. I think 7V is a little too menacing, and the Orange amps really have a audio draw. Never pissed st Johnny for knowing the drum machine, I'm addicted to his playing. No lie, Lars Ulrich is a very decent drummer, but for the same reason Johnny is: keep it simple and stupid. Was that a helicopter passing by or just another death metal song?

APHND has no religious overtones. I like that. I've had nervous breakdowns all throughout my life, and I know others like me with coke problems and drinking disorders and Sal gets it right.

How about making some money? Lou Dibella, sub zero is a personal acquaintance of mine. I grew up with and rented from Jaime Jasta's fam. What does it take to pay the bills? Venues? No. Contraversy does.
So true was the line "Riots, protests, violence just makes us famous."

The industry isn't riddled with fools, its riddled by Dave grohl, probably.

What does it take to put gothic music back where it once was, and move on from this hipster, emo(tional) facade?
I think the answer is hidden in grass roots social issues that aren't discussed.

You fuck yourself, youre a guy, you fucked a guy, you're gay. What's truly good about the net?

How many people doing decent hard rock remember the difference, pre millenium.

The Prophets of Doom were a non-profit org.

Ghost in mind, what about a classic rock revival? Less fuzz and more fun. I can do the limbo to those Sweedish adolescent felons.

Thx for the post man. Do you think APHND is alternative?

Well, its certainly not hardcore. Steele wasn't the only guy in that band. He went alternative to keep the limelight out of his hyper-aggressive Carnivore act. Pale Horse is an apology to seventh void, keeping tradition in a way.

It's alternative. There's young chicks in the crowd, there was a regular african-anglo-native American chick getting into it last time at the Knitting Factory. That speaks volumes to what kind of art it is. We're pulling through a sort of emotional cold war. There's not a lot of variety like there used to. Daft Punk was alternative but only because it was in the same kind of pay grade and audience at the same time bands like Type O were. I have to be honest, i don't like life of agony, but I agree with anything that Sal might ever say. Drummers really know best.

All I know is that biohazard, hatebreed and Obituary are hardcore. Seventh Void is just heavy rock. Kenny is a tremendous and emotional vocalist and a simplistic, but creative guitar player. I can't say anything mean about Professor Hickey.

Question is, Dereck, who else carries the criteria of alternative like APHND do? Nothing comes to mind. Make sure these dudes get a lot of water. No drinking at work! I saw Type O nine times and past 2003, they sucked so bad because Peter was constantly flat. 2009 was sad because they broght along the villian from ghost busters along. Pete was drinking water and had a lyric sheet with him. I was proud of him, and i still have pics on my fb profile of that night.

Yeah, who else IS as dead point on as an alternative as PHND? Nothing as alternative as my band....
I hope someone is laughing at some of this. I'm a fuckin smart alec from New Haven. Im trying real hard to get some new long island sound and pay my way like everyone else without bein a smart ass.

Alot of the fans at the shows are left over from the opening bands.

Connecticut State Troopers called,  they want you to know that your DWAI law is hilarious, but it doesen't beat their domestic violence statutes.

Dude, I'm an educated kid from the inner city.  Why don't you go cut your hair or something?  Seems like that's the only thing other than your sister that you're interested in.  Backwood country fuck.

"We all want to hold on to this everlasting gaze, because we're enchanted by the rapture and it's sentimental sway... But underneath these wheels are the skulls of every cog, shafts the already fickle fascination of an everlasting Sun-god.  You know I'm not dead.

Mr. Hennings,

Due to your oblivious commentary on the unforseen variable of fans that come to just about any show,  I'm assigning you to survey every fucking person that comes to a show and report to me your findings.  Make sure you do so with every ounce of spite in you, so that the band feels guilty for truly thinking they were the ones of interest.

Get a job, fool.

I fucking travel by train, from Waterbury, CT on the Metro North then walk to fucking williamsberg to preserve money to see APHND.  And I make a few friends on the way.  You weren't one of them.

There's a copy of Individual Thought Patterns at Duff's.  Pretend you're there sometime and listen to it.

1. i drove from long island to the January pale horse show and in December took the train from long island to the city to see pale horse twice in a month, met alot of cool people there too not any dicks like you. I didn't go to the last Ph show b/c my car shitted out on me the day b4.

2. at the January show i went to duffs knocked back a black tooth grin in honor of peter and dimebag. You come off as a complete pompous ass.
