Just to nip this in the bud, while the lyrical content of Race Machine can be really violent and negative, Patrick and I in no way incite, condone, or promote actual violence. To me, to have violent urges is human, and bands have always been a safe outlet for my negativity. To act on those urges is to ignore another’s basic right to safety. I have no interest in having ‘beef’ with anyone, or any interest in retaliation for anything done to or said about me. To anyone who has a problem with me, or anyone who knows someone who has a problem with me, as of right now I hold no grudge against you. Let’s just live our lives, please.
Found a pretty decent deal on a 6505, and I’m getting sort of sick of my JCM800, even moreso after it shitting out on me at the show the other night. I think I’ve maybe used a 6505 once before but I do know whenever I see them used they have a great tone (for the style of music I would be using it for).
The one at 1:25 is brutal as fuck! I feel like everyone gathering around and laughing like it’s all a funny joke while the “texters” manage to sustain their anonymity is a little counter-productive. It’s funny in a “are you fucking kidding me this is such a fucking joke that this is still happening” way, but I feel like laughing at it like it’s not a problem is just making the people that say this horrible shit feel like they’ll get away with just maybe being a little embarrassed at worst?
