I want to personally welcome you all to our 100th show. I’m not gonna lie, this shit wasn’t easy. You know that expression, “do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”? What they don’t tell you about it is you’ll never work a day in your life because no one will pay you to do that shit. It’s been a costly effort and taken time, money and our social lives but we wouldn’t change a thing. Well, maybe that money part…I like money.
Anyhow, for our 100th show, we thought we’d all bring it back to when we were young, fresh faced and still trying to be good at this and what better way than a clip show? No better way god damn it, no better way. So we start off with the show that aired immediately after our last clip show (show 10), with Push to Talk (R.I.P.) and take it all the way through some of our favorite moments of the last 89 shows. We’ll touch base with favorites like The Lawrence Arms and lesser noticed (but equally great) moments with bands like New Mexican Disaster Squad. It’s been a zany ride and we have the audio to prove it.
If you thought something should have made the cut or just want to say “what’s up” send us your thoughts at SoundSceneRevolution[at]gmail[dot]com, on myspaces or here in our comments. We’ll be back next week with new content, and soon the inevtiable “Warped Tour” Series. I normally close with some silly topical quote but I won’t let Sarah Palin sully our milestone. Just remember, we are, hands down, the best goddamn podcast on earth. Period.

Ladies and gentlemen,
I present you episode 99. That’s right. We’ve stumbled, fumbled and otherwise facefucked our way through 98 other episodes, and currently stand here, on edge of history overlooking all we have done. From here I can not only see my house, but also the corpses of all of our enemies…Or maybe those are just my dreams…or my dozens of cellphones that can’t seem to last more than a week. Basically, shit is high and crazy impressive. Be impressed.
For our 99th show we decided to pull from a local band who offered up one of the best albums of 2008, Olehole. These guys rock hard in the vein of Fugazi and other bands that aren’t Fugazi (I’m a god damn poet). They were nice enough to let us talk at them, even thought I had no notes at all for the interview (if you listen you can here Jackson discovering my notebook is empty). Anyhow, check out the interview and get some damn culture.
We’ll be back next week with our special 100th episode, where we bring you some of the hits. Feel free to contact us with your suggestions for show 100. Drop us a line at SoundSceneRevolution[at]gmail[dot]com, on MySpace or here in the comments section and remember, “Pres Obama you got nerve while u sightseeing in Paris to tell us”time to deliver” on health care. We still on skedul/even workinWKEND”.

This week we had the great opportunity to sit down with a fantastic new band from the Oregon area, called Anchor Down. If you’re not familiar with the band you need to do two things 1) kick yourself for not checking them out sooner (and because you’re a dick) 2)pick up their debut EP Steel to Dust. These guys bring a great mix of that Midwestern punk with a lot of west coast melody. They’re super good and should be keeping themselves busy in the coming months, so you’ll have more to hear soon.
As for your listening pleasure this week, not only do we have a new show but a brand new contest for you to enter to win! You can win a CD copy of Anchor Down’s debut EP Steel to Dust as well as a bitching Anchor Down Shirt (size medium). This week’s prizes are donated the fact that I don’t keep CD’s and by my inability to properly order a large shirt on line. So check it out and be sure to contact us at SoundSceneRevolution[at]gmail[dot]com, on Myspace or here in the comments section. And remember, no one makes better decisions than white males, no one!
