  1. Yeah and the thing is, it's not something that annoys me. It's something that you see and you know things in the world do get to him and you can imagine him being really depressed or down. It's something that I just don't like to see in anybody and I see it in myself a lot. One thing bi polar does is give you the ability to really give a damn and sometimes it helps but sometimes it doesn't. When it doesn't is usually when you feel alone in that there seems to be a problem with something.
  2. Good song in moderation. It's one of those songs that could get old on you. trying not to think of shit that is obvious here. It's way to easy to bring up something by the Beatles or Bob Dylan or the Who or things that were more recent. Sunshine Help Me by Spooky Tooth
  3. You know what's odd is that Al Gore learned about this from these scientist people. I think you might want to point your sarcasm that way, to those scientists with their education, years of study, and more knowledge of the climate than you, I, or even Al Gore have. Also, that winter storm that those on Fox News were all going on about, actually makes sense from what I understand. I think it has to do with how the heat makes it so the snow will come down in a larger amount because it builds up there longer. The extreme on one end makes for an extreme on the other end. global warming is just the term it's known for. But, I suppose, damn them liberal scientists and their thinking and suggesting that people do something that doesn't help them in the short run because we like things to get here fast...like our food.
  4. Haven't been to many concerts but I'd say it was Alice Cooper at the Sturgis Rally in south dakota, a few years back. Used to live not far from there and that was the best time to go to a concert.. The year before was good, Velvet Revolver was who we went to see, and they were fine accept I am not a big fan of their former vocalist. I think a few NASCAR drivers were there before and they did some trick with their tires and whatnot. I think one of them was Dale Earnhart Jr. but I don't recall. Of course, none of that matters because both years were epic because of the epic amount of breasts. If really attractive woman is not epic, what is?
  5. Awesome, looking forward to seeing this. Some of the things he did post as examples for content could be classified as stupid in a sense but I think I like happy Matt joking around and having fun with things over when he gets serious. I understand it because I am bi polar myself and know that it is hell but the guy needs to have fun too. If I have to pay 25 bucks too see it, then that's fine with me.
  6. It's alright. I think if I saw it live I'd like it better. Johnny Strikes Up the Band by Warren Zevon Don't know how popular that song was compared to Werewolves of London, and Lawyers, Guns, and Money and but that is the one that just sticks out to me from that album.
  7. There are many reason why I'll do it/ I'd also point out that he isn't going to see half of what you spend, probably. Considering that this will cost him money to put together, I think some whom may react that he is just trying to make a quick buck are mistaken. I understand those whom can't afford it but I am sure that he and those helping him out aren't just going to throw something up. Shit, I pay for web hosting that I don't use that much and that is at least $100 a year. His definitely costs more than that by a landslide. If I had as much money that it probably costs Matt to keep his website up.
  8. Sounds good, haven't heard the other two tracks but I definitely like it. It'd be definitely be interesting to see him put some instrumental tracks on his next album. Although, I think he has mentioned that he has really gotten into Explosions in the Sky, which this track makes me want to listen to myself.
  9. Yeah, I heard the tried to change the name to Fox Comedy Channel....apparently "FCC" sounded better when Bush was in office. Also, the voices in Glenn Beck's head are not a good source of news.
  10. Yeah, there is a reason why we regulate alcohol use here in the states. Whether one agrees with it or not, there is a reason. There is also a need for laws regarding guns. Giving everybody a gun doesn't help. You fail to take into account that everybody having a gun with them could also make things horribly worse. When the shots are firing, who is to say more innocent people aren't killed? Usually you want to stop violence, not create more of it. If somebody gets to the point where they feel the need to bring a gun to a school, I highly doubt they give a damn if they come out alive.
  11. The thing about that is that other bands can afford not to do it more so that Matt can. I don't know his financial information but I doubt he is extremely rich. Given what it must cost just to run the website, which costs a lot more than some personal website owned by some guy nobody has heard of. It wouldn't be surprising to me if it costs him ten grand just to keep up in a year, even more. Some artists are able to do that and some can afford it because they have less of a presents and don't put near as much effort as he does into their web presence.
  12. Yeah, I kinda get why he might be acting that way. I get the feeling he is trying to combat a lot of stress right now. Knowing what relatively little I know about mental illness, besides my own experience, it's a nightmare. Add that he does have a lot of strangers that know him in a certain way, that adds to it. I have my own ways of handling it and sometimes they don't go off too well and sometimes they end up with me saying "fuck it" to a school asignment that is really boring and making a wanted poster description of myself in which I make fun of myself and then it becomes the assignment for the next week. I have kind of come to expect this when reading his blog. Not just because it happens every so often but because I know what I go through and thus feel like it's best to respect it. You may be right there but there are a lot of things with mental illness that just don't make sense in the moment. For instance, ever go to a hospital because your chest feels like it is about to explode and nothing ends up being wrong? Yeah, even though I could think about why it happened afterwords, you aren't thinking logically when you are feeling as if your world is about to end. Usually it's the less extreme cases where things like that can turn into something positive.
  13. That is the problem I have....I am glad I also ordered the CD version. I thought maybe it was the whole CD but I guess once I heard it on those two tracks, it just stuck to me.
  14. Well, it is at 191 on the iTunes charts in the US right now. I think as more people wake up, it will do pretty well here down here considering lack of promotion. I think a lot of it has to do with Matt's ability to not make himself seem so much like some god of rock or something. That will carry you far when it comes to getting people whom may have seen you at a concert but hadn't really heard of you before or whom stumbled upon your music somehow.
  15. Any workarounds? It seems to have problems on my iPhone and that is what I downloaded it from when I did.
  16. two bad us in the US don't get the pre order tracks but I do recall when Matthew Good wasn't even on the US store, I am glad to just to have this album on my iPhone and in the mail. Anybody know when they are updating the front page of the US s tore, for some reason I think Steve Jobs is secretly a Matthew Good after the last two releases.
  17. Heh, I don't have a favorite album by Matt or any artist for that matter. There ones that have touched me in different ways. That's one thing I wonder about. People talk about how "album b" was alright but not as good as "album a" was. If Album A didn't come first, would one have the same views. In the question that needs to be asked is about whether or not the artist was able to successfully get the message to you. Matt does a pretty good job of that.
  18. Yeah, true, but does it really matter? I think the sad thing is that you think it matters to me that I sell it here. Yes, I got bad feedback, and I realize that. Yes I haven't posted a picture but without the working camera. If I had that in my hands right now, I would have taken the picture to do so. I think it's sad that you seem to believe that I don't know that I make mistakes and that I am going to just go on thinking otherwise. Because anybody who writes or does anything that has to relate to or get a person to think is by making mistakes, even in that area? You know why I come to that judgment based on what you have said? Well is your statement more out of some emotion? Is it based off of actual thought in the criticism? If my assumptions(and they are just that), then in that mistake, and that I got you thinking, Isn't that what an artist is supposed to do. You screw up at times. You can get all worried about what others think and run away from the issue or ou can say something in relation to it. I don't call myself anything. Labels don't tell you anything. If I was how you most likely have judged me by my mistakes on this thread, would I be owning up to them or would I be defending them in ways so ignorant of the fact? Yes, my first post was horrid and my second post didn't do much better. I realized that quicker than you think. If I am as sad or anything as you think I am, then why don't you just leave it? Or is it you that is having some issues? I am not coming to that conclusion but an observation and if I have done so falsely, then say so but also act it. I had that thought before I read the responses. After it, I would rather have took it than done something else to cover it up. Really, the impression I get of you is probably just as bad of the one given off by me on this thread. The difference, from what I see, is that I am saying that I made a mistake. That it didn't take you or the others to respond for me to look at things and see it. But really, I was the one who was trying to sell something and it was on me. So that is going to be the bigger issue. If I gave a damn that people see the mistake, and if I was planning on getting all negative about the person I was criticizing in this post, then it would have had little substance. Just as my first posts had.
  19. $325 US plus shipping. I also have the gig bag that it came with and can give out some strings with that as well. First come. first serve. Either PM me or post here. And yes, I do realize how stupid the first format of it was. I'd edit the first post but I can't so here it is.
  20. I have a Fender that I am wanting to get rid of. The condition is good or so says my father who can tell that better than I can. He has said that it's only noticeable things are scratches on an area in which you would expect. It is basically the same as when I bought it(refurb I guess would be the name for the buying condition), and it was great back then. I am selling this because I haven't been able to focus enough. I have been more interested in the writing aspects of music than the playing. So I am going to the keyboard for all of that. I do have a price in mind to be the "high price" that if passed will go to that person. This all keeps in the open here on the forums. If you have an offer to buy it now, just aim high and if you cross any lines I will let you know. I don't want you to pay over any ideal price that I have, nor do I want you to pay less than it is worth. SO keep it realistic. there will also be issues with shipping. We will have to worry about a case, or how it all will go down. That should be discussed in here as well. I think I have a case that somebody could buy as well, but I don't have an exact price that I can give that out for. If you have any actions, just ask.
  21. All the time, but it goes without saying. Why say something everybody in a thread room already knows.
  22. Obviously I cannot empathize with you there. But I always have been under the asumption that being black and having anything to do with money, education, or anything that has been historically geared towards "whites" is kind of suspicious to not only cops but people in general. And the worst job for me? Really, I don't have much to choose from and all made me feel like shit in one way or another. Having a visual impairement and finding a job that involves labor is hard enough around here, but what makes it harder is that when you do, they assume that you are incapable of doing simple tasks that I would have to adapt to in different ways. Of course around here that is also a complex notion. You know, that people have to think different. If anybody thinks that small towns are ideal, trust me, they are not. If you have anything different about you, you reall find it hard to survive. We have a few people of different eithnicities but most of them seem less noted than those of us who are "white". And those kids who get treated differently because of a disability? Well being treated differently is not as in getting ecent educational help, the school puts all the money in sports. No, I have seen a lot of kids get treated like crap or in a manner that digusts me because of how ignorant it is when it comes to the issues of the person. Yeah, I live in a small town, where the people aren't that much smarter than ones we refer to as retards yet they are so much higher then them. How this got from what the worst job I have had to this is hard to comprehend for some, but for those of you who have had issues like this, you know what I mean. Qualifications don't matter. it is how much the person likes what you seem to be based on some corrupt observation.
  23. English is ruining the internet. You have it all backwards.
  24. Even if it does, Obama would almost have to persuade our allies a little to do so. Think about how much we have gotten recently internationally. Do you think if any other country did what my country has done would get away with it? It's like shooting somebody because they think they might shoot you four hours before they even purchase the bullets to a gun they still need to find. You call self defense and the jury is stupid enough to believe you. Why because your group of friends and you have power that the jury is afraid of. If the person in charge while you are out throws you out to the jury but doesn't do anything more, does it really help? I don't know if that is a good analysis but I think you might get the point. Logic says they'd follow logic and do what is right. Of course logic in my view is actually giving a damn about others. And if history is a telling sign, people will tend to care more about themselves than others. Thus it would be easy for one to get the idea that even if he goes to court, he can pay his way to freedom. Freedom, apparently only he is entitled to that.
  25. I voted in the poll that I wouldn't be voting. At least that shows I am honest or intelligent...one of the two. Because I actually know Canada is, in fact, not a part of the United States.
