SXSW can blow me...

We're not going this year, mainly because not only is it the biggest cluster-fuck in the history of man, but it isn't very much fun either. SXSW is always pitched to bands as this oasis of music appreciators and geniuses gathering to discuss the beauty of the sung note, when in actuality, it's a bunch of writers who cannot write and artists who don't make art tugging each other off. Nobody climaxes, even.

Another reason is, all there is to do for three entire days is drink beer. That is a bad scenario. I present you with an example.



Enjoy.

Yeah, the last thing you wanna let me do is sit around and drink beer for three days... and then try and play music.

We were never really met with much fanfare at SXSW, but we did have one great show there in which I got into an argument with the bouncer/door guy because I was trying to unplug the dance party sound system in the club below the show. It ended with me calling him a bitch, I believe, stealing the hat off his head & disappearing into the crowded street. I went and got three slices of terrible pizza afterward.

My friend Joe put it best:

"SXSW? It's like a men's restroom.

It's where all the dicks go to hang out."
