Amie Street
09/15/08 at 11:46 AM by AP_Punk
http://amiestreet.com/

seems like a pretty cool place for getting music "legally".

about:
On Amie Street, you can discover, buy and download music of every genre from a great selection of established and underground artists.

It's the first place where people collectively determine the price of every song; on Amie Street, all songs start free and rise in price up to 98 cents, based on their popularity.

Amie Street was founded by three college friends in 2006 with one goal: make it affordable, fun and easy to discover and download new music.

We support our artists by giving them 70% of song sales and never taking ownership of their creative work.

i think if you click that link and sign up you get a 5 dollar giftcard. not sure how long it'll last. i found some pretty sweet stuff so far.

thank you, chuck ragan!

My Dreams About Not Sleeping Until 3 PM
09/11/08 at 10:45 PM by AP_Punk
Let's yell if we see it in ourselves. The passion to do something more than live inside our culture's fucking walls.

Now I don't have the answers of what a perfect world should be. But we'll start to find the answers when we find community. So get up to see the sunlight.

So, yeah, I must remind myself I can be active with the activists or sleep in with the sleepers. I don't have the answers. But I know another lonely night on this couch won't do anything for my world or myself.

And so the next time I hear someone call someone a "***" or a guy call a girl a "bitch", I'm going to fucking scream. Yeah, next time the passion hits me I'll try to find out what the pop songs mean.

Expressing my guilt through a consumer product doesn't mean I've solved anything, but as I've always found a way through my pain. I'll find a way through my apathy. The revolution in video games distracts me from the real thing and from where I need to be - in community!

Minimum Wage is a Gateway Drug

C I V I L W A R is absolutely awesome (Confederates are stoked!). I think it was definitely worth the really, really, really long wait from Dillinger Four.

Cannot wait to own a copy of this on wax.

The fake punknews song titles are still awesome though and I'm a little bummed that none made the official album. Oh well. Whatever. That's cool. Looking forward to that interview Chris did with 'em. Also, I think VC might be re-pressing Midwestern Songs of the Americas and Versus God on vinyl. Woo hoooo.

Booo-urns!
09/02/08 at 08:03 PM by AP_Punk
I rarely check my e-mail. I should learn to check it more often.

A few days went by after placing that online order for the turntable I mentioned earlier and I finallt logged in to see what was in my e-mail box and found a message from that store saying they refunded all my money because they couldn't send it to a PO box address. Rats. But I should've known that at the start and put in a physical address. Boo-urns.

I didn't really feel like placing another online order and having to wait days and days all over again, so I went to a few stores around here, browsing and turns out Radioshack had a pretty decent one for a low price. I purchased it, went home and tried setting it up. But then the rubber band got all messed up, I didn't feel like opening it up and all that to see what was going on down there soooo I had to take it back the next day and see what they could do about it.

There was nothing else they could do. Haha. And that was the only record player available in the store besides the one out on display. Then one of the workers made a few calls to some other Radioshack stores in ABQ and one location had one - yay! So NOW that turntable's on its way here and hopefully by Thursday it'll be here and I can go pick it up. And I'll try to be more careful this time when messing with it. Haha.

Lousy setbacks.

My Iron Chic demo tape and two Gaslight Anthem Sink or Swim 7" singles arrived in the mail recently. Woo hoo.

Finally ordered a new turntable earlier today.

http://www.abt.com/product/551.html?source=bizrate

So stoked.

I'm pretty sure it'll be way better than the crappy one I currently have (sorry, mom!). Can't wait to get it.

I haven't heard the new Monikers album yet, but I wanna so bad.

The Pink Couch!
08/27/08 at 11:36 AM by AP_Punk
http://www.ifyoumakeit.com/

Great site that features a lot of good bands preforming acoustic-ish stuff (in the Pink Couch section, that is). Halo Fauna, Defiance, Ohio, Andrew Jackson Jihad, Spoonboy, Bridge and Tunnel, Matty Pop Chart, BTMI!, Ghost Mice, Lemuria and many, many more! Check it out. I love it.

And there's also a few live performance by Best Friends Forever, Iron Chic, Good Luck, Heathers, Slingshot Dakota (covering "Waiting Room"!) and tons more.

Bookmark that, man.

A blog post about another blog
08/26/08 at 08:06 PM by AP_Punk
One of my favorite blogs that I look forward to checking out everyday is Jessica Hoppers. She's a pretty well known punk feminist writer/rock critic/something like that.

Somewhat well known for her article in punkplanet on sexism in the scene back in 2003. Note to genre nazis: yeah some of the bands she associates with emo are totally not close to actual emo, but - hey, we didn't any better what to call it back then! And I'm sure she's aware of that now)

Good article. Made quite on impact on me when I read it back then and still does today. It's a must read.
