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.
So, it’s Valentines week, huzzah (by the way “huzzah” is in Microsoft spell check, weird)! Hordes of young lovers will be buying sweet nothings for each other, writing love poems and hooking up (hopefully leading to an unwanted pregnancy and a Maury Povich paternity test marathon). And, what better way to celebrate the season of love than with a new podcast featuring those barons of romance, New Mexican Disaster Squad. The name just says, “The Sexxy”.
We sit down with three of Orlando’s sexiest foursome to talk about everything from Richard Minino’s crazy artwork, to why they rock so hard live, and even the erotic, and taboo topic of piss bottles kept in a van while touring. It’s like everything you ever wanted to know about love, but never really thought about asking. PLUS, someone farts in the mic (too hot).
In addition, this week we host our most awesome ENTER TO WIN!!! ever! The New Mexicans totally hooked it up and we have two awesome giveaways that will make you,instantly, their biggest fan. Check it:
