i love this email in response to the list:

Quote:
"dont take this the wrong way i am just a guitar player but ur annoying list was some what funny, but it makes u guys seem like a bunch of pricks u would not have ur joint with out the annoying bands. i frequent ur place when my friends play but if u dont treat the bands that deserve respect with respect they will not play shows and tell others and so on and so forth just a little concernced."

Top 2 Annoying Things That No-Talent Rockstar-Wannabe Bookers Do:

1. They gripe about bands all the time, sometimes in the form of a list on the internet, the universality and specificity of which alludes to latent resentment of bands just for being in working bands, rather than for exhibiting any kind of genuinely annoying behavior, which is alleged to be the purpose of the list in the first place, but is really so not.

2. They use ellipses improperly, like this:

Haughty prick from Creepy Crawl wrote:
... This is just a small sample of annoying things that bands do that we came up with at the Creepy. We could go on and on with this....







A couple of those are kind of funny though.

3. They conveniently omit the fact that their club is a skeezy dive with a suckass PA.

I thought it was pretty funny…but I can also imagine if a club like Bernie's posted this list on their website. (to imagine that of course, I had to imagine Bernie's even having a website…i'm picturing it being FrontPage template-based w/ all copy in comic sans & lots of animated gif's)

There was definitely funny stuff on that list, but the overall effect of it was to convince me I'd never ever want to work with the folks who run that club. If that's the way you feel, you're better off getting out of the biz.

My manager said the same thing.

btw, the rackets will be there - to break all of our new year's resolutions of ten years ago to never go there again - on the tenth and fifteenth of january playing with velcro lewis from chicago and blondsai from baltimore, respectively.

Someone should re-do that animated gif and show a toilet leaking urine and feces into the bar area.

I kinda think that beer drinking bagel man looks like Don B(agel).
