Thursday January 22nd 6:01 p.m.

Still in recovery from a whirlwind trip to DC for what ended up being an amazing show.
I can only hope that is a trend that will follow us in 2009.

The actual inauguration was quite compelling, I kept saying out loud fucking different it was from 2004.
Cops were almost hard to find, and when you found them they were trying to be polite.
Cattle herding barricades and "free speech zones" were replaced with public transportation busses parked to block streets.
It was different scenario to say the least.


The recording process continues.


I HATE A SONG THAT MAKES YOU THINK YOU ARE NO GOOD.
I HATE A SONG THAT MAKES YOU THINK YOU ARE JUST BORN TO LOSE.
BOUND TO LOSE, NO GOOD TO NOBODY.
TOO YOUNG OR TOO FAT OR TOO THIS OR TOO THAT.

THE GREAT DEPRESSION IS OVER MY FRIENDS...

It makes me happy that you guys still churn out records like this - nothing is worse than waiting 3+ years for new material.

Hopefully we'll hear some optimism this time around.

I was at Demand in DC and after about 12 years of hanging out in the DC punk scene I was beyond happy to hear you all talk about apathy. You are completely right - the work that needs to be done fall on us and in a place and a culture built on unity we should be able to integrate ourselves into the community instead of ostracize ourselves because of some idea that we are better because of the things we do, the music we sing, or how cool our ink is. That night as I was sitting in the metro at 1:30 - realizing my alarm was going to go off in about five hours - I was so happy that I found a way to hold on to my beliefs, my passions, and my sense of self while finding a job that helps me be an agent of social change. So the morning after seeing you play I went off to work - covering up my tattoos to be Ms. S - the only first grade teacher in Alexandria, VA that comes to work in jeans, t-shirts, and vans. Keep fighting the good fight and keep inspiring the young to stand up and create a better world - and I'll keep working with these really little ones. Not to mention the two I have at home.

Peace,
Addie

I found a video on Youtube of the song "Sheep in Sheperds clothing" and it's fucking awesome!!! I can't fucking wait to hear more!!!

Defiant said...

the new song was awesome guys, if thats just a sample of whats to come for your next album then its going to be your best work yet. See you at Demand in DC next year? and the year after that? why should it just be a inauguration thing.

Other than that, bullshit, cops were abundant, IMO.

1% is all we need to over throw this Tyrannical bullshit, and what each of us can do is, is start growing gardens, and guerrilla gardens, taking over all sort of free land, and gardening in the most evasive and obvious of spots. As well, people can start distilling their own fuel. There are web technologies devoted to this. As well, I really don't give a fuck about Obama's new money, FUCK ALL MONEY!!!!!!!!! ANTI-FLAG!, what are we going to do without Monopolized money? I guess we will have to just turn to barter and trade. Like I do. I live on barter trade, and it is great. Who cares about the damn Money system anyway? FUCK IT. Fuck the NWO, and fuck the Fascists coming in the take over with their FEMA camps, and all that other bullshit.

Check out this radio station. For the people, by the people, for the people who are willing to know, and who are willing to fucking change this fucked out planet for the better. BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO BE. If Obama can make a difference, he should burn all the money, let the world come to a screaming halt financially, end all war, fuck it, we are all going to die anyway, might as well stock up on food, grow seeds, because the next 3 years is going to be hell, and you know, how could hell be any worse? Are you ready to die for what you believe in, or just be a fucking puppet, or a sheep? I WOULD FUCKING DIE BEFORE BEING A SHEEP.
I hope you are well, this fucking government has me outraged, I am squatting, and as such, I am still free, but I am suffering, I listen to a lot of talk radio, I am lonely now, but isn't the true revolutionary. Please email if you give a fuck
I love you all
