I tell you it’s been kinda liberating. I could have easily followed this slippery slope and completely given up on this thing, but, i don’t know, there’s this compulsion i have to it. And it’s really only for me. But now we’re settled, we have internet, school is on a mid-semester break, so i’ll continue.

Life Is Wacky

Life is wacky – Assfactor 4

This song is my ringtone so every time it appears here it is most probably because i was woken by a phone call. That this is the first time it has ever appeared here just goes to show how much that actually happens. My mother called to tell me she has sold the house, so there’s that, delivered as both good and bad news. That was quick. Someone from over the road bought it as their investment property… yeah… A lot of history there. A lot to be cleaned up.

Don’t Fall In Love With A Drummer, or Why Do You Think They Call It Dope? – Assfactor 4

Do Assfactor 4 songs all sound the same? It’s not something i need spoiled for me, and, after listening to the first LP and this 7″ this morning for the billionth time, it’s not something i believe. They all sound the same inasmuch as they’re all the greatest songs ever written. It’s just that i didn’t have one discernible song in my head this morning, just Assfactor 4 – a bleeding together of a bunch of their songs. The greatest band… behind Fugazi, Minutemen, Sleater-Kinney, Shotmaker,…. Maybe there for now. I don’t really want to think of any other bands to displace and send them down further.

Deliri-loco – Assfactor 4

Assfactor 4 are simply the greatest band. Well, maybe not the greatest band, if i am to be absolute about it and rest one (1) band on that pinnacle. And i know who they are, and i know several filing just below them. Nevertheless, Assfactor 4 are more than deserving of the heights unexamined hyperbole can reach. This is a fantastic song by them, one of my favourites. A slower one. The melodic, two guitar line outro is something the band did so well, and something i think i copy too much in my own attempts of songwriting. So much so that i’ve already repressed any appearance of something resembling it before it’s ever had the chance to appear in a completed song.

Today i have to go get my haircut (bad thing), buy a stylus (good thing), and save a set of swings from being torn down (desperate thing).
