Would anyone be willing to upload Broken Van?
I just reformatted my computer,
and ended up losing a lot of songs.

Thanks, in advance.

2:59 pm - broken star story...

kotchspotting
hello kids,

a few months ago I posted about this idea I had (it was only two posts ago in this comm), about writing a story based on the lyrics of broken star. Well, I have finished the first part of the story...it mainly just covers the first song (15 minutes), and is about 1400 words in total. It is posted under the cut...let me know what you think (good or bad).

9:41 am - this idea i have

kotchspotting
hello kids

christmas/holiday/winter break is upon us, and I have 4 or 5 weeks of pretty much not doing anything important. Last night i had this premonition to write a story, but I was wondering what it should be about. Well somewhere along the way I had the idea that the story should be based in Chicago, and then I had the premonition that I should write it loosely based on one of my favorite records. The only appropriate records I could think of for a story like this were from the Slapstick family tree, and I finally decided that I would write it using Broken Star. I'm not sure how long this thing is gonna be, but i am kind of excited to write it. I plan to weave a fictional story into the songs, like, each kind of "chapter" (this is not going to be of book length) will be about one particular song, and done in order. The story will flow along with the record, but anyone should be able to follow the story without any knowledge of the record itself.

I think there are ideas like this out there, theres a thing going on now on broadway where someone writes a musical around an artists works and includes their songs exclusivly in the musical, I think theres one based on some of Billy Joels songs and stuff. I dunno if I've ever heard anyone writing a book in this fashion, but I am sure it has been done before. Anyway, who knows how long this will take me to write, but if anyone wants a look at it or anything lemme know, i'd be happy to share.

12:53 am - Marble Train Wreck at Tonik this Friday 12/16 @ 9:30 p.m.!

appius
Hey Guys,

There will be a train wrecking of marbles when Marble Train Wreck opens for The Dynamos this Friday, Dec. 16th, at Tonik! The address is 7247 W. Roosevelt Rd. Forest Park, IL, and the show starts around 9:30 p.m. There's a measely $3 cover, sweet drink specials, and tantalizing rumors of a Christmas party... "Luckyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!" You might be busy training to be a cage fighter, or learning how to tame a wild horse, but make it out to Tonik this Friday if you can for some "Rock AND/OR Roll!"

Sincerely,
MTW

9:46 am - a little thanksgiving broadways cheer

kotchspotting
this song came on my iTunes randomly today, thought it was sort of ironic (although it would be more ironic if it happened tomorrow)


third graders holding hands indians and
pilgrims celebrating new found lands
they tried to teach me that at school
make the white race look superior-it's always been their rule
now i can't believe we celebrate thanksgiving as a holiday of unity and peace
if i had my way, we'd all dress in black
and daddy would serve up the white meat
cuz genocide is nothing to celebrate, extinction doesn't deserve a parade
and we perpetuate these lies with the turkeys that we buy
i tried explaining to my mom but she's too afraid to admit to herself
that her race is a killing machine
take a look around your town and who do you see?
the native american is surprisingly absent in
his own indigenous land
do you want to know why? it's cuz we killed them all
it's not that hard to understand, yeah
so i go to college and you know what i learned?
that 80 million people were killed by my grandpa
your grandpa and all of their friends
they bleached out our continent but that's not the end
the last full blooded aborigine died a century ago
if it's possible there's a place in the southern hemisphere
with a history even worse than our home
no one finds it peculiar that a tropical island is
full of people just like you and me
but australia's a piece of shit floating in the pacific
buoyed by the blood of the aborigine.
buoyed by the blood of the aborigine.

taboo_tactic
Stir It Up is a toronto based youth activist organization.  we are holding the second annual Hungry4Change youth activist conference along with other youth organizations. it's an awesome event filled with workshops and information about every issue imaginable. please read the link for more info.
If you're interested in coming but do not live in the toronto area, depending on our funds, we can fly (or bus) you in from wherever you live and there will always be someone willing to let you crash at their house.

New Lawrence Arms album: "The Greatest Story Ever Told", Sept. 23rd, 2003 on Fat Wreck!

I've been wondering something for a bit:

Does anyone know why Yellow Plaid, Brotherman, The Man, Guy Smiley, and I Hate Girls never made it onto the Slapstick anthology?

...and how come "Fuck the Church" wasn't put on the Broadways Broken Van CD?

I just ordered the new comp with the new Lawrence Arms song, "Traditional" on it, so I hope I get it next week!
