  1. What would be a good idea would be to check out the South by Southwest festival website. Every year they release a giant torrent file containing tracks from almost all the bands that play there. Not the official website, but it gets the job done. Happy hunting!
  2. I went and stood around with about 300 other people or so for an hour, but they never showed. Fucking cowards.
  3. http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/local/sto...p-4801884c.html However, they got stopped at the border yesterday, so they may not actually make it into the country. The funeral is at a church about 10 minutes from my place. I'm going to try to be there, but hopefully the press won't be. Those bastards don't need any more publicity.
  4. I've refused to buy an iPod for the last few years. I got one for Christmas, but I just have a bunch of audiobooks that I don't listen to on it. I dunno, there's something about having a huge pile of CD's and records around that I can rifle through that I enjoy immensley. It makes sharing music with friends way easier, too.
  5. i disagree with this, because it could be argued intensely/easily that jesus was a proponent of conformity, just not to the status quo, but to his own brand/schism of conformity ;) I'm an emo kid, non-conforming as can be/you'd be non-conforming too if you looked just like me :angry: I know exactly what you're saying, which is why I said that it's "a bit of a stretch." But if you remove the aspects of divinity and whatnot from the man, then you still get a figure who challenged the cruelty and corruption of the political and religious leaders of the day (regardless of the modern day
  6. I think there is something wrong with punk being synonymous with revolutionary. What great social movement did the Sex Pistols or the Ramones instigate? It would be far more accurate to say that the punks are part of the revolutionary spirit rather than the revolutionaries embody the punk spirit, although I disagree strongly with that, I still want to be fair to those who do use the music as a productive means to express themselves and motivate others. Nowadays, it seems that calling ones self "punk" is just an excuse to be an asshole. I work with a guy who went down to North Dakota and w
  7. Reading Greg Graffin's article, it seems that Punk is nothing more than a label people throw around that can potentially define anyone who railed against the status quo. In other words, it's just a generic term. Martin Luther King Jr. could be a punk; Ghandi could be a punk; this may be a bit of a stretch, but Jesus Christ could've been a punk. Matt Good could be a punk. You see where I'm going with this. There's something a little bothersome about making a label then applying it across a broad spectrum of people and then claiming it as your own. I don't see the point in saying "he's punk
  8. Reading this thread makes me realize how out of the loop I am. That said... Arcade Fire - 'Neon Bible' Matthew Good - 'Hospital Music' Radiohead - 'In Rainbows'
