Oh, believe me, I do. I just don't like your little clique any more than I like any little clique. Please stop being such wimpy, sensitive nerds. This site is not about free speech. It is about making a small group of pseudo-intellectuals feel like they are empowered, but since there are about twenty of you, and the site has been running for quite some time, I would assume that the entire project is a failure. Congrats!

No, the site was a recommendation site that recommends nothing but worthless, questionable "news" stories. Haven't seen many people recommend any new bands, movies or books, except for the one ignoramous who recommended the Dan Gillmore book he hadn't read (and apparently didn't know the title of either). This site is a failure. It is taken over by armchair political columnists who have no writing abilities, so they simply quote fringe news sources. Google can give me better news, and slashdot is a better recommendation system. At least they can filter out trolls (a stupid term) and spam links. Memestreams is uselessm, as it currently exists. And the site looks boring. Maybe one of you left-brained autistics needs to shell out the three bucks to hire a graphic designer. Maybe you need to buy some users with distinct personalities, or taste. Just two suggestions that will fall on defensive ears.

You spelled "here" wrong, retard. I am sure they would support his decision too. They are all friends of his. How sad that this site appeals to one little clique of little well-off whitebread kids. Maybe you need to spend more time away from your keyboard, and experience life. As it stands now, I cannot wait to get a new account and begin posting spam links regularly. Clog up the system a bit. Now that I know what you are not capable of fighting, I can inundate you with it. In short, this is war.

THe AUTOFILL DOESN'T WORK!!!!!! This would have been better. Well. you'll never know.
Here is an email I got from head memester Tom Cross on July 28, 2004 at 6: 25 AM.
Maggie Schitz is a bleeding dog
Maggie Schutz is a 22 year old girl who is friends with half the people
on the site, and whom you've never met in your life. I get to spend the
next two weeks explaining to umpteen offended people who you are, why I
don't kick people off this site, and what kind of additional technology
I need to deploy in order to manage trolls, etc...
In other words, try to think before you open your fucking mouth,
Then, he sent me this next email less than 20 minutes later, at 6:42 AM.
I wiped your post off the site. Never had to do that before. I don't
like doing it. However, I don't have any technology for people to deal
with trolls and so there is no way that people on the site can respond
to you other then to throw a public hissy fit, and to harass me about
it everywhere I go in Atlanta for the next 2 weeks. I don't really have
a choice. Next time you call someone out have a good reason.

Okay, then George W. Bush, Paris Hilton, Scott Peterson, and Britney Spears are the most useful people in America. Give me a break. Bloggers are the kind of armchair media that turns the internet into a cybertower of babel. Can't wait till the terrorists nail our powergrids so I no longer have to listen to, or read, misinformation.

Here it is, as promised, the video of the last Flipside gig.
The uncut one is cool too. It was a really good gig for a band of cretins
I have the feeling that the site is slammed. I was unable to download it for awhile.
No, it was probably somebody fucking up. You should fix this technological bullshit for once and for all!

This is great! I've been wanting Doug to have some kinda online presence for YEARS.
I have know Doug since I was 17. He has been producing art constantly since then. He deserves the title "artist" more then anyone else I know, because he is _always_ producing.
Bullshit. You met doug when you were nineteen. Fuggin liar, there goes your reputation, rattle!

||Sunshine Flipside Explode CBGB's, Charges Not Filed, 12/27/03
|| 3:03 am EST, Dec 29, 2003
Rock and Roll band Sunshine Flipside broke up on CBGB's stage last night after an "incindiary" performance that out-punked some of the more seasoned pros on the bill. For those unfamiliar with the band of four skinny, ragtag and ultra-talented lunatics, their sound conjures all the right spirits of rock and roll, but the group's stage antics include beating the crap out of each other, while cursing, drinking and rocking like hell. When original lead singer Lonnie quit the band, two months ago, guitarist Johnny Larkin, bassist Danny Matthews, and drummer Robert Blake (also the frontman of another excellent band, The Vanities) decided to keep the group together and forge ahead with some new songs and performances. Lacking Lonnie's presence made them all think it was kinda pointless, though. The banned announced Dec. 27 as the date of their final gig, set to take place at CBGB's, on Bowery and Bleeker, in Manhattan.
The set started off with an introduction of the most-current lineup, who tore through "Were I Belong," a grinding grunge anthem that showcases the vocal talents of bassist Matthews. The three-piece then spat out Larkin's "Disclaimer," with its thoroughly heartfelt lyrics about the "finer" points of females. The band seemed intent on delivering a fantastic performance, while Lonnie Rutledge bobbed back and forth in the front row of the dancing spectators. At the conclusion of "Disclaimer," he crawled up to the stage to writhe around a bit and hit the tremolo on Larkin's guitar. With song's last chord, Lon put on a guitar and walked up to the mike.
He announced that it was their last show, unless someone signed them right there, that night. Then they launched into the instrumental "From Another Planet," which drummer Blake turned into an amped up ball of energy shot from the band to the crowd. Lonnie played a Fender guitar with so many stickers on it, that no one seemed to think oddly about the firecrackers that he had apparently taped to the front of it.
Next on tap was a fine version of the rocker "Blue Blocker," and a rendition of "Heartbreak Blues," which probably qualifies as the Flipside song most likely to get a kid laid after the junoir prom. Tonight's performance of that tune ranks among their best ever of that poppy slow tune, with one of the best Larkin solos yet.
After a bit of confusion over how many songs the soundman would allow, Sunshine Flipside launched into their final song, a new one, written by Lonnie and fantastically essayed by his former band. Sadly, at this point, the band began to show some of what might have kept them together in the end, a sense of having fun together...
...Then Lonnie turned to face the drummer, the lights on the stage went down and he held a lighter to his guitar before turning around to face the crowd. Within seconds, firecrackers exploded from the face of his guitar, sending the band out with an proverbial bang. Danny and Jo... [ Read More (0.2k in body) ]

These are the lyrics of a new song by a NJ based band of rabblerousers calling themselves The Snipers. This song goes to the tune of Bob Marley's Redemption Song and it goes a little something like this...
Oh pirates yes they copy,
But who are we to bitch?
We write songs to make you think
Not for us to get rich,
But the Man he says you are wrong
Backed by RIAA
But we have the tools to fight them
Just get out there and play
Songs that make you think
True songs of freedom
All we'll ever have
We download songs.
Emancipate yourselves from market slavery
Boycott the servants who rule our lives
Have no fear of our corporate entities
There's no need for them in these times
Let's log on and kill their profits
While they treat us all like crooks
But it's them been ripping us off.
Time to steal back what they took.
Songs that make you think
True songs of freedom
All we'll ever have.
We download songs.
