Nominate Me for the Williamsburg iPod Awards!

Last year, I was awfully hard on the PLUG Independent Music Awards.  I called them "shallow and obnoxious" for sloganeering and pandering to hipsters and "wannabe snobs."  I was overly critical of their final ballot options, which I referred to as "repetitious and cannibalizing."  Now, however, I'd like to express regret over my uncalled-for remarks in the best way I know how: by encouraging all of you to nominate me for this totally awesome prize!

The Fantastic Fear

They really think that you're stupid.  Honestly, they must, because why else would the Associated Press and other mainstream media entities disseminate articles with headlines like "Bush reminds Americans U.S. is at war"?  The only Americans who don't know we're at war with someone or something are under the age of 3.  So why is this unnecessary "reminder" being echoed by the outlets that many Americans get their news from?  Quite simply, the Bush administration and the Congressional Republicans that love it know that the only way to keep GOP control of the legislative branch is to pump fear in the citizenry to dissuade and deride those who question or dissent.

godspeed you! black emperor tour dates

I was wondering if you can confirm or deny that godspeed you! black emperor
will be on tour in North American in July/August.  Their web site shows tour
dates in my area (Seattle/Portland/Vancouver), but the venues listed do not
have the band on their concert shedules.  Thanks in advance for your help.

You stupid numbskull, it says Silver Mt. Zion tour dates.  Don't go, just don't go, sit at home and listen to your fucking Thom Yorke solo CD and Coldplay CDs.

Brainwaves Festival

Hello! On Saturday April 22nd 2006 I purchased one weekend ticket to the
Brainwaves Fest as well as one sticker and one T shirt. This was payed for

my wifes name. Am I going to have problems getting my tickets and other items
because of this? Thank you very much, look forward to hearing from you

It's cool.

A heaping platter of hot fresh kudos

Yes, whatever kudos are exactly, you folks certainly deserve a heaping helping
of them.  I'm so glad I discovered the brainwashed site.  The information and
artists there are excellent, with many fascinating links to the great ether
beyond.  The radio station is very fine, though I wish it had at least a notch
higher bitrate than the 64 kb mp3 stream I've been listening to (please let me
know if there is a higher quality stream).  And the podcase is truly a treat,
one of the very best music podcasts I've yet encountered.

So, just wanted to thank you and wish your orgaization and all the gremlins who
dwell within a long and prosperous future.

hey guys. first of all, congrats on some very killer bands.  second of all, was
wondering of you were interested in any new projects now or if i should save my
time, demos and postage money for the meantime.  we are a very
young band - meaning i have been the single contributor for some time now and
just recently compiled a demo of ten songs.  the mixing is sub par and the
drums are crap since they're mainly taken from reason and battery.  *software
drums and bass don't generally mesh well with mic'd guitars.  however, i
recently found three others to complete the band and am currently building a
personal studio just south of nashville, tn.  let me know if it would be worth
my while to pack and mail a demo for your critique comments.  much respect.

Sorry, not interested.

peter christopherson

Hello Friend at Brainwashed,
I heard that Peter Christopherson is completing something from a new project
(perhaps with Thighpaulsandra).   Do you perhaps know anything about this???  I
consider the Mutek as Coil's best live performance, and that show was actually
absent Jhonn Balance (although I miss him greatly along with everyone else).
However, I feel that Peter and Thighpaul has something together that could be
succeed Coil.   Please let me know if you know anything about this new project.


Once there's official news, it'll be posted.
