bite my shiny metal fucking ass.
Thanks so much!
I'm sure the "business directory" that's "not done yet" will be of TONS OF HELP for all the businesses already suffering thanks to this. I'm sure by the time the legion of monkey fucking morons the city employs finish "coding" it, all said businesses will be out of business. PROBLEM SOLVED! Go albuquerque.
I can't really get over the idiocy of the "planning" of this project. It's got to be one of the most poorly cobbled together pieces of garbage this city has ever done. Albuquerque seems to be working really hard to push itself at least 50 years into the past all the time.
Val's work is great, thank you Val!
Whatever. Once again, shut up, do something of your own, OR LEAVE. I'm sure plenty of other "scenes" will "happily" welcome you.
Hmm. I've got an idea, then; perhaps you should go back to one of these scenes you love so much. Or maybe you should start your own scene, or try to impress upon the one you already have, instead of expecting it to give everything to you. The "I expect it all and don't want to work for it", attitude is more played out than this subtle disdain for the "scene".
The ABQ goth scene has always been one of the most welcoming and supportive scenes in it's genre I've been a part of. You might have a problem with the music being played, so maybe you should DJ yourself; you do that, right? Or is everyone supposed to cater to your needs, without concern for what they want to play, and dance to?
Maybe you should take a demo CD to the Backroom and ask to play - however, from what you've said, you're too good for such a club night, and wouldn't play it anyway. Oh, but you would go to Skinny Puppy, right? Wouldn't that be considered "played out", then, considering that the local music supporting that show would be what you consider "not subversive", and SP is a fairly household name in the realm of Industrial music now? Is it only cool to support the scene when there's a big name attached to it? Because, after all, most of the people buying the tickets to that show are the people you just so eloquently dismissed. So, what's subversive enough to make you happy?
Keep in mind, also, that this scene is still more active than those you laud so readily. The list of acts which have found their way here and continue to is huge. The fact that festivals like Oscillation happen is still more magnanimous than that of 99% of other scenes. And, finally, the local musicians and listeners/club goers here are still likely to have more heart and soul than those you refer to.
But again I say; if you hate it so much, LEAVE.
Back off your stupid stereotypes and consider for once that you're lucky to have what you have. If you want it to be "better", help it be better. Otherwise, shut up and leave.
the atomic managed to get itself closed for some reason, and this flyer went to waste. SV played on the sidewalk, though, because they don't give up, and that's fucking awesome.
