You might want to take a look at some of the photos I have been posting up.
Oh my goodness, they bring back a lot of memories!
That photo of Sean was taken at the show in what used to be Mojama on Sauchiehall St, right? That was a horrendous bar, but the floor space was perfect for a show. If my memory serves me well, that was also the show that a whole load of CDs got stolen from the distro box and everyone was furious. Seriously, who robs a band/show like that?
I still have the Offside demo, 2 different copies of the Violent Response demo (because the covers were hand-drawn and hilarious), the Motionfest DVD, The Fight Back demo with the Family Guy cover and the fold out lyrics sheet with the boxing match on it… man, I am so glad I’m a hoarder and kept all of those.
Good on you for taking these in the first place and for keeping them too!
Oh, and I also still have a copy of Gav’s hardcore zine. SHIIIT.
The car’s on fire, and there’s no driver at the wheel. And the sewers are all muddied with a thousand lonely suicides. And a dark wind blows. The government is corrupt, And we’re on so many drugs with the radio on and the curtains drawn.
We’re trapped in the belly of this horrible machine, and the machine is bleeding to death.
The sun has fallen down, and the billboards are all leering, and the flags are all dead at the top of their poles.
It went like this -
The buildings tumbled in on themselves. Mothers clutching babies picked through the rubble and pulled out their hair. The skyline was beautiful on fire - all twisted metal stretching upwards, everything washed in a thin orange haze. I said, “Kiss me, you’re beautiful. These are truly the last days”.
You grabbed my hand and we fell into it; like a daydream or a fever.
We woke up one morning and fell a little further down, for sure it’s the valley of death.
hey, nice looking pic on the machine drum cover! i was browsing and though, wait a minute, i have seen her before!
Haha yeah, I’ve been getting that. Some guy from Paris has messaged me a couple times, he thinks I am Machinedrum. You checked out the record? It’s dooope! The photography was done by this fine lady http://www.christinakernohan.com/

day 09 - something you’re proud of in the past few days
Honestly? I’m struggling to something to be proud of. I’m in a motivational limbo. I feel that I’m just floating along, waiting for uni to begin again. I seem to have a need to be under pressure. Maybe I’ve just gotten used to it. I suppose proud of the fact that I’ve gotten this far academically, and with such little debt to my name, but now I’m worried about the final stretch.
Satoshi Kon, the director of anime movies Perfect Blue, Tokyo Godfathers, Millenium Actress and Paprika, as well as the TV series Paranoia Agent, died on Tuesday, August 24th at the age of 46. (NY Times obituary.) He left behind a rambling but extraordinary document, which his family has posthumously posted on his blog.
