STARRY NIGHT

Here are some pics from the WOLFS and VILE BLUE SHADES show at Starry Night in Provo on Saturday night. It was an amazing live show. There was no stage and so the audience and the band were sometimes just inches apart.

The Wolfs open the show.

Eli, of The Wolfs, sings "Doctor Death".

Steve and Michelle on the floor.

The Vile Blue Shades (who did soundtrack for THIS DIVIDED STATE) do their psychadelic, 3-drum set, trance thing.

After Party above Starry Night.

Who's the poser in the Rancid t-shirt?

If you ask me, Rancid tries way too hard to be The Clash. Sure I owned some Operation Ivy stuff back in the 80's, but Rancid in 2006? Who do they think they're fooling? Obviously the guy in the Rancid shirt needs to learn a little music history before he proudly dons a black Rancid t-shirt like he's some sort of neo-punk rocker.

Fuckie,

I don't think Rancid is trying to fool anyone.

Yes, I need to learn some music history. Please write some...

Steve,

I asked you nicely several times to not use harsh language towards me. I also warned you that it is in my nature to razz people. Please refrain from using harsh language especially when it involves messing around with my name. If you feel the need to razz me back, then might I suggest refering to me as "Doogie", "Doobie" or even "Daffie". I hope that you will honor my request to not use harsh language towards me, it's not good for my state of mind.

Your pal,

Duckie

PS

In respect to music history, I don't have the time or the desire to get you up to speed on all of this stuff, but I would recommend you starting with whatever bands you like, find out about them and what their influences are. You might dig some of it or you might not. Then do the same thing with the bands or musicians that you like that they liked. Do this for a while and you will start to have some context for the history behind music today.

If you like Rancid, check out the Clash. Their untitled first album is good and London Calling is a musical wonder. Actually all of it quite good but I would start with those two.

Oh and Steve, for the record Rancid IS trying to fool people. They fooled you didn't they? Get familiar with the Clash then go back and listen to Rancid’s pop sensation "Ruby Soho" and tell me Armstrong ain’t doing a lame Joe Strummer impersonation complete with a fake cockney accent! Rancid are big posers who dress like old school punks because they are betting that fresh-faced pups like yerself will mistake their rip-off act as being something new and original.

Steven Greenstreet said...

Suckie,

Sorry about the mispelled name. I promise it won't happen again.

Thanks for the music history. I actually have both The Clash and Rancid on my iPod. But, wait a minute, I bet you're now going to tell me to revert back to 8-track and that the iPod is trying to fool people.

Duckie Butters said...

Stevie, Stevie, Stevie,

Can't you get anything right? Duckie Butters is all about the iPod! I've had one for years now!

I however, hit the nail right on the head when I called you a "poser" didn't I?

Your Rancid t-shirt looks quite spankin' new! Tell me Steven, did you go over to the mall and buy it just for the show that night?

That's what I thought. You are sooo boring and lame!

I love how you put all of these ridiculous photos of yourself trying way too hard to be all cool, and you just wind up looking like a self-obsorbed fool!

PS

Have you checked out "The Devil and Daniel Johnston" yet? Or have you been spending all of your time strolling through the malls in Provo, Utah trying to be noticed in your new Rancid t-shirt?

It's all about Vinyl steve.

Steven Greenstreet said...

Fuckie Fluffers,

All the attention you're paying me is flattering.

I actaully got the Rancid shirt from some website. I think it was www.posers.com.

Or maybe it could have been www.gofuckyourself.com.

One of the two.

Dawn Lapre said...

Settle down Steven!

Why are you getting so worked up over all of this? This isn't going to turn into one of those "Molly" things is it?

Anyway, you need to seriously lighten up. Afterall Duckie seems like a real sweetie who simply likes to "razz" people from time to time. He seems pretty harmless. Why all this agrression?

Dawn

Steven Greenstreet said...

Don't fret, Dawn.

I'm just "a real sweetie who simply likes to "razz" people from time to time".

Seriously, I'm just razzing. Razzing, razzing, razzing. All in good fun, yes yes?

Dawn Lapre said...

Steven,

With a name like Duckie Butters I just want to give him a big hug. Steven, he is pretty funny, even if you are at the butt of all his jokes or "razzing" as he likes to refer to it. Anyway I have never seen Duckie fly into any verbal abusive blogging rage, which is more than I can say for you. I'm just saying why screw with the guys name? He asked you not to. He's not cussing at you. He's not combining your name with any four letter words.

If you ask me, that whole bit about you going over to the mall to buy your Rancid t-shirt the day of the show was nothing short of hilarious.

Blog on!

Dawn

Steven Greenstreet said...

Seriously, you don't think "Suckie Utters" is funny?

Dawn Lapre said...

Yes steven,

I find Duckie's brand of humor quite funny. Your last attempt however, fell rather flat.

Blog on!

Dawn

Steven Greenstreet said...

Oh, OK. Thanks for visiting my BLOG!

Duckie Butters said...

Yes Bryan,

I still have quite a large collection of Vinyl. When CD's were fairly new, it was hard to get anything that wasn't mainstream pop on CD. During that time I built up quite a record collection.

My vinyl stuff is still in very good condish where many of my cd's are rather scratched or the cases are all falling apart. The iPod is rather cool in terms of storing a butt load of songs and having them at your fingertips. But in 20 years I doubt my iPod will still be working. This technology is quite the double edged sword.

Your pal,

Duckie

PS

Do you write screenplays in addition to short stories? I have read a few of your short stories and thought that they were great!

I hope Steven knows I'm just razzin' him. I can't resist, he's such an easy target with these ridiculous photos he puts of himself on here. And Rancid? Gimme a break.

Bryan said...

I've written 18 feature length screenplays.

I have Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts club band on vinyl.

Whats an Ipod?

What Rancid I've heard I've liked.

Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros kick ass.

This comment thread is as gut-wrenching as it is hilarious.

Duckie Butters said...

Bryan,

18 feature length screenplays, that is impressive! What have some of the more recent ones been about? And do you plan on posting any screenplays on your other blog?

Hey if you talk to Steven anytime soon, tell him I think he's an alright guy. I didn't mean to be so hard on him for wearing that Rancid shirt. I think I hurt his feelings when I called him a "poser". Let him know that it's just me and my razzle dazzle.

Check this out, last night I was getting all nostalgic for vynil so I pulled out a stack of records from the early 80's. I put on some Minor Threat and I was literally bouncing off the walls and doing stage dives onto my sofa. I was up until 3AM doing this with the stereo up damn loud. It was pissing off all of my neighbors but I was feeling too punk rock to care. When the cops showed up, I turned out the lights and went to sleep.

Duckie,

keep up the amazing comments. You rock!

Steve,

Your Rancid shirt does look like it is brand new. What's the deal, did you in fact buy it at the mall like Duckie said? 'cause I went to those websites you mentioned and there are absolutely no t-shirts for sale there. My vote is: Stevie Greenstreet went to the mall, bought himself a Rancid T-shirt, stopped in at the Supercuts and had the gal put extra gel in his hair, then bought himself an ice cream cone.

Thanks for the comments, guys! It's very flattering to see people obsess over my wardrobe. It's like People Magazine when they gossip about what Brad Pitt is wearing. Seriously, this is great. Keep it up!

Hi Nice Blog .Setting the backlight to “always on” will significantly reduce your Ipod batteries life. Only use the backlight when necessary.
