    screw jay reeatard. he was scheduled to play a show at our howie's gig here in visalia, booked with calvin johnson and monotonix, the fucker is a flake and did not have the decency to call and cancel, just never showed. most people at the gig and those in charge of booking all assumed that there might have been some accident or something or other. kept trying to get in touch with him the whole night. the guy didn't set it straight til a week later. had no other show or scheduling conflicts just skipped the whole thing. definitely not punk rock. monotonix actually saved the whole night which was the funny thing because they were banned from the place, but was booked despite the inner disagreements with the management. all ended great though got the hangout with both them and calvin johnson til about 4 a.m. through a friend of a friend at the house they were crashing at for the night. was a rather strange night...

    All you have to do to be better than Slightly Stoopid, is be someone other than Slightly Stoopid.

    I grew up in Visalia, for what it's worth. I went to the first few shows that Aaron booked for Howie's. He's a pretty good guy.

    yeah aaron is great guy and things are now starting to seem like they are going well for him, especially after his meeting with the mayor of visalia. actually got people from fresno jealous that visalia is starting to become a small hotspot, but that is cool that you know him and grew up here.

    I saw them open for Black Keys last wednesday, they sound like someone shouting at you through a megaphone while fire alarms are going off all around you while you're being punched in the gut by a 4 year old.

    someone tell me..
    is it Jay "retard"?

    or like "raytard"?

    or... "ree-a-tard" ?

    those last two are actually funnier.

    he plays it off like he's some raw as fuck punk rocker, and thinks that it will justify his harsh and abrasive sound. but in reality, it's just harsh and abrasive because it's shitty and effortless

Robert Plant would probably be on there somewhere too.

    his band was "The Reatards" so he adopted that as his "last name"

    You know, kinda like what The Ramones did thirty years ago?
