There is no Ink & Dagger without this man, but I will be there to see the cover band. Beleedat.

Typed Out Setlist

It's been a while since I did any eBay auctions. It's the type of thing that you can get easily addicted to if you let it. Sometimes I find the most random items in the garage, the shed or my closet and find myself thinking about how much money I can get for it on the 'Bay. In most cases, the records are never missed, but in some cases, those moments where you realize that 97a shirt your looking for was sold makes it a dicey undertaking.
The whole eBay thing reminds me of my buddy and I going through our collections in the 90s, scrounging to find a couple CDs or 7 inches to trade in at Double Decker. To think of the good music we let go to take a chance of some stupid record that had a write up in the Very Distro catalog makes me sick, but luckily, we're now in an age where nobody asks me "Where do you HEAR of these bands?" anymore (A pretty common question years ago).
I don't expect the stuff that's going up to go for much, but whatever. I feel like I'm getting to the point where I am wearing less and less hardcore shirts. It's not an adult crash type of thing, just, I have my favorites and find myself wearing those same 5-10 shirts more than the fiftysome sitting in the closet. So this is the process of the weeding out:


PS- The title of this post is in reference to a song that fits my eBay experiences perfectly.

Safe In a Crowd

Back from a shallow grave with a new name and the same old bullshit. As random as it gets and updates whenever I feel like it.

Ended up catching Breakdown at the Barbary this weekend. Pretty much played wallflower the entire time...but here were the highlights:

-Caught the end of Dead End Path. Sounded tight.
-Skull Crusher had a good set and preferred Fiji bottled water.
-Truth and Rights deciding to end their set with "Rise and Fall".
-Seeing a kid in a studded vest hide his ice tea bottle behind a pole outside.
-Noticing a number of hardcore hall-of-famers in attendance.
-Getting an Unlearn demo CD.
-Breakdown destroying.
-Scooping up this shirt:

Pretty much a perfect set in my book. There's always the cyber-mosh:
