whose got my extra for the white stripes in NYC

Recommended Posts

...first let me say im on your side dood....i agree with everything you "rant" about....

 

im sorry its early and perhaps i was being confusing.....

 

no what i was trying to say was that the goal of any artist is to do nothing but create...and if their creations allows for them financially to continue to dedicate their lives to their art, then this is the best that they can hope to achieve...you think the band that opened for the strokes likes them, maybe or maybe not...but they opened for em, why? cause as an artist all they wanted to do was play and make a name so they can play some more...as far as the "dl" status, no the white stripes are not playing msg, they are playing bowery which holds a thousand...big but not blown...but its funny cause ive seen bands where i cursed that they got the shaft, that they should be the headliner....where is their respect...and then bang, im stuck at the back of a 3000 people instead of 300....thats what i was trying to say as far as careful what you wish for....

 

i think i said groundbreaking to the point they didnt suck....and i dont think i dropped any names....

 

im just letting you know that the ice you skate on is thin...the problem is that music is in part a perceptual idea of what the listner thinks sucks and doesnt suck...again, let me say that i listen to the whitestripes because i like their sound...not because of any media outlets or buzz....i heard about them in another thread and decided to just get an album....i put it on...and i liked the sound....perish the thought....

 

 

i never said minimalist rock was a new concept......

 

yes the carpenters were a brother and sister music duo...although i dont really care for it:

 

"The brother-and-sister team of Richard and Karen Carpenter may be the best thing to ever come out of their native Downey, Calif. The former child prodigies became superstars after Herb Alpert discovered them and soon helped transform them into one of the biggest acts ever on his (at-the-time) still fledgling A&M label."

 

 

found this and had to laugh...even the carpenters need a good A&R rep...

 

"they play stripped down blues and rock and roll"

 

and i love it....early rolling stones

 

and how should we characterize the bands you "name dropped"....dare i say that they are in someway of stripped down or improved version of an earlier genre....

 

railroad listen to what you like thats all im saying....

 

if i listen to the whitestripes cause i wanted to be cool or hip, then yes your rant is well justified, but then again why would want to waste yor energy on people like that to begin with....

 

by the way you the names you dropped...i will check out...why?....curiousity....will i like them? who knows, but if i do i wont be because they are fringe rock and roll and im a cool insider....no rather ill like them simply beacuse they rock and roll...get it

 

 

:idea:

cheers

alright, alright. its dumb to be arguing about this, anyway.

 

this sort of thing is a sore spot for me, seeing many friends struggle with bands to only get minimal success, or always be on the brink.

 

more power to you for getting into something without the help from "industry," though if i were to be picky, seeing it on 12oz is just as much buzz as seeing it in a gap commercial. :)

 

youre a good dude, a fellow music fanatic...ive been on here a long time and can see that you actually care about this stuff more than the average joe.

 

but you had to expect something like this, being a fan of the white stripes at the height of their buzzitude...i just made up a new word.

"more power to you for getting into something without the help from "industry," though if i were to be picky, seeing it on 12oz is just as much buzz as seeing it in a gap commercial."

 

im keeping hope that this is not the case....any of the bands you mentioned im sure are not in gap commericials!...word of mouth is sometimes the best and only source...i cant know everythig out there and thus am somehwhat dependent on people, such as yourself....but yeah id be careful of my source....

 

please feel free to push any bands on me....actually id appreciate it... three or so would be plenty....although i can always revert back to "what are you listening to threads"

 

one last thing:

 

"pretty funny how they traded sympathy for the record industry for v2, kind of ironic, huh?"

 

can you explain that...sorry i dont know what you are refering too

 

 

i also hope the bands you fight for get their break and get to spread their music and become self sufficent....

 

and i hope that they go on to use their power effectively....and they become the bands that are smart who blow up...that dont see it as an opportunity to increase earned income, but rather as an increase in earned power to make decision in and out of the studio....and choose their own opening acts....

 

such as radiohead....:love2:

 

peace....roe

shoot, i start most of those "what are you listening to ***" threads.

 

white stripes were on a detroit indie label called sympathy for the record industry...they recently got picked up by v2, which i think has ties to sony? is it british? who knows.

heres the deal with the white stripes.

 

if you put them in a steal cage, with all the guys from the strokes, lemmy from motorhead would still beat them all fucking senseless with nothing but his belt and a big ass iron danzig belt buckle. and im not talking about a small, elfin sized beating either. i'm talking a full on massacre. lemmy would be caving in skulls. there would be infectious diseases being spread by brain matter getting stuck in the eyes of the goat skull, as it bashed from head to head. he would be popping brit-rock elbows out of their socket like he was eating a cornish game hen. he would show no remorse, but just blind fury and contempt. those pussy ass little members only jackets and synthetic leather thrift store bullshit is no match for the horned buckle of death. lemmy would tear the skinny ties right off there necks and take their fucking heads with em. then he'd tie the tie around their head, spin it in a circle as fast as he could, then fucking throw it, just to see how far it would go. he'd invite the guys from 'exodus' and they would have a BBQ and some olympic style games. its just like a verse out of a rakim song "i take 7 gay rockers put em in a line, then i grab 7 of their friends, cause they're gay as fuck too. it'll take 7 more roadies before i go for mine, yo im fuckin lemmy, im gnarley, ill fucking kill all 21 of those fucking dick wad worthless little rich fucks all at the same time"

 

so you see what im saying? no? lets recap.

 

white stripes + strokes + lemmy + traditional danzig 'goat skull' styled iron beltbuckle = two ton can of devil powered whoop ass!

 

 

are we understood?

...okay thats all well and good...and yes im sure with the popularity of celebrity boxing, we may one day see this event....and im also sure everyone here is jealous cause they dont have a danzig belt buckle....

 

 

however.....the white stripes/strokes are simple ole school blues and rock and roll.....with some minor distortion and twists....they put together interesting melodies/juxtopositions and have a quality sound....the strokes are stupid music thats funs to get drunk to and rock out....and go real fucking fast in my car....catchy like crack tunes....i deem the white stripes, who have three albums to be slightly elevated musically....

 

 

no one except you seeks are comparing the apples to the oranges.....

 

 

no one here is doubting the steel cage outcome...

 

im just saying that the bands are not really comparable.....

 

i mean motorhead and the white stripes/strokes, i cant even begin to imagine if you put their fans in the same room what would happen....;)

 

 

a bloody mess im sure...but the two fans would probably never end up in the same room...get me.... :idea:

roe, im not comparing apples to oranges, im comparing the white stripes to getting their asses kicked.

 

haha.

 

dude, this, like the rollerblade thread, is just an excuse to talk shit. i mean come on, i used a 'tickle me elmo' reference as the basis for my first argument. i actually really listend the white stripes today for the first time. first time really paying attention i mean.

 

the verdict?

 

some of the songs are embaressingly bad. while others, are decent. good or bad, they all sound like 1963 b-sides on a beatles 45. and i dont mean they sound like the beatles, i mean they sound like a shitty group also signed to the same label as the beatles, who the management hoped to generate some 'buzz' for, by adding their song with one by the beatles.

heres a fun fact about the strokes:

 

they disliked how programmed and digitized music had been sounding of late, so to give the ultimate FUCK YOU to that sound, they used a bunch of computers and machines to program and digitize their music to sound like it was recorded on reel-to-reel in the 70s.

 

good job, boys!

...yeah i meant to tell you fr8oh, i dont have AIM....i still use a telephone....my incredibly horrid typing and turtle like speed makes AIM just impossible...okay really im just lazy and indifferent...but yeah ill email soon...

 

'fo paw'......classic

 

 

seeking....i thought the use of tickle me elmo, in an economic theory of supply and demand and the difference in socio-economic gaps causing the price of goods was pretty decent actually....

 

 

well im atleast glad you listen to the cd....thats all i aske....and yes im well aware of the fact that sometimes you actually rant about shit you really believe in, while at other times you just love to be a dick of devils advocacy and push buttons just for some laughs....as do i...;)...are you going to completely ignore my querries about my lost packie? :P
