  1. Yeah, my email at worked blocked it because it is a "malicious website"
  2. VH1 did a top whatever songs of the 90s and left off Everlong by the Foo Fighters. Not a big Foo Fighters song but even today I really enjoy that shit and it still gets pretty regular airplay. In my opinion that should be up there in the top 10 or even 5 with Hey Jealousy and Smells Like Teen Spirit (even though I don't like the song).
  3. haha no... it used to be called Fuck Yeah Fest but they pussed out and changed the name to FYF Fest to appease sponsors or some shit. For reals. Lame. PS- This shit sucks an asshole. It's seriously everything I hate about LA rolled into one place. Go to San Diego that weekend instead.
  4. Awesome! You're Richard Verducci, right? I should be at registration most of the time (or maybe I'll be running around like a headless chicken, who knows)... if our paths cross I'll buy you a beer!
  5. Hey, if I was a west coaster, I would be there. F.Y.P!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Half the people coming are from out of state! There's some motherucker coming from England and shit, yo!
  6. This shit is almost sold out! For reals this time! Get this shit now before it's too late. I don't know why I'm even bothering posting this here. Nobody cares.
  7. Ordered this even though my Live In Chicago #2 is held up because of the White Crosses LP
  8. An egregious omission, in my opinion.
  9. haha, yeah... it's a bummer I was hoping they'd sell faster but with where we're at we can easily cover our budget and there will still be more passes sold this year than last year.
  10. Nah, they stalled for a bit... mid August or even later is probably more realistic.
  11. I also think it's funny that it went from FUCK YEAH FEST! to FYF Fest. Pretty weak. I mean, stick to yer guns. Don't puss out and take out the swear words cuz yer getting popular.
  12. Nice and steady, about as expected. There are plenty of passes left if people are still trying to figure out their finances, but we are expecting it to sell out about the first week of August. Also, got word from the hotel that our initial block of reserved rooms sold out! They've given us another 10 at the discounted rate so hurry up and book your rooms! Remember, if you use the reservation link on our website YOUR CREDIT CARD WILL NOT BE CHARGED UNTIL YOU CHECK IN! This gives you plenty of time to figure out who will be staying in your room and how you're all going to pay for it! Remember, this is a holiday weekend and the entire hotel WILL sell out! Do not sleep on this. If they sell out quick we will get another block of rooms but if everyone waits until the last minute and they're all gone there is nothing we can do!
  13. Test Pressing. There is (was?) a test press contest going for those that pre-ordered a copy.
  14. At this point it should have arrived, definitely get in touch with Sam!
  15. Yea I was kind of surprised I didn't get the color version. I thought I ordered pretty quickly after this was posted, I guess they're more popular than I thought. Oh well, black is still kinda limited, and it is a really good record. There were only 100 and I think the band got 20 to sell on the road. Then Sam probably saved a couple for himself and saved some for friends and those involved with the record. I got a couple clear ones for myself. There were probably about 70 or less clear copies available to the public when it was all said and done.
  16. Just confirmed THE SOVIETTES! Probably the last chance to catch them on the west coast!
  17. There really was something really cool about the old hand-drawn/cut-n-paste/photo copied stuff from the 80s/90s. However, I don't know if it was necessarily a concious decision to a create a certain aesthetic, rather it was bred out of necessity. Back in the day, there wasn't a lot of money to pay artists and printers so they made the art themselves and photocopied them. Nowadays, computers are so advanced and printing is so cheap that you can make full color 7" jackets for probably about as much as bands were paying for their DIY photocopied covers back in the 90s. Today if you were to make a cover look like that it's more of a personal choice to create a certain look than out of necessity to save money or whatever. As an example, moxicopy.com will make 500 full color copies using 80lb 8x11.5" that you can use to make 7" jackets for less than $90. So yeah, nowadays doing that style is more of a choice than necessity.
  18. HWM is the only band I'd bother with on this sorta release. Stoked!
  19. Yeah, I'm stoked on that! BTW, passes are over 1/3 sold out and we're creeping up to 1/2 sold out!
  20. Imprint doesn't seem to make a true 7" gatefold. Any ideas who makes one? Something like that 2x7" Gaslight Anthem EP that came out last year. This is what Imprint makes http://www.iloveimprint.com/7inch_double_jkt.htm
