Two Lists

The older I get, the more apocryphal this list seems. I saw a lot of bands, but I don’t remember seeing some of the bands on this very dumb list I made for MySpace. I look back at making this list, and I think about what I was doing with my first real experience being way-too-online. Anyway, I don’t want this to disappear, however embarrassing it feels to read now. I love music, there I said it. I like lists. Most of all, I like you, the person reading this and deciding to skip through after about ten names. I appreciate you, and I always will.

BANDS I SANG FOR: HATE PARTY U.S.A., THE GENERICS, STAUNCH, HATE FARM, and GOD FORBID (not the same God Forbid) and FRIPPER. I’ve also performed with the PSYCHEDELIC POPES and THE SPOOK LIGHTS. CAPSLOCK INDICATES BANDS I’VE SEEN LIVE.

Another MySpace relic, a list of movies. Better understanding how algorithms work, these lists weren’t a terrible idea. Now there are websites that cater to the collector of titles, and names, but back in the day, I was just hoping to make some new, like minded friends. This hasn’t been updated, it’s (oh my god) fifteen years old. Again, you dear reader are beautiful and nice and smart and I love you (please forgive me for this spot of inane vanity).
