I'm just planning ahead to next year. Hopefully I can see more shows than the five I saw this year, (six if I fly down to San Diego and miss Thanksgiving).

LOSER!!!

dijk cheese

i dont see anything wrong with following the melvins around

there a great band worth seeing multiple times and its a good excuse to travel to different cities. if id been in the situation i am now cash wise a month or so ago, i wouldve checked out a couple of european dates, no question.

anyway my bit on the matter
i say i can't, but i really mean i won't.

Quote3. CREEPY OBSESSIVE MELVINS FANS THAT ARE ALSO "COLLECTORS". Running neck and neck with the drunks, these guys (and I do mean guys, there was not a single woman that I encountered that was like this) are super fucking annoying, the kind of guys that liked the band a little bit too much for their own good, the kind of people that would pee their pants if "King Buzzo" (not Buzz, note the difference.) walked on by, the kind of guy who would whine about getting the poster marked "69" out of all of the show posters, the kind of guy who would complain about how the band had some insignificant piece of merchandise the year before and on and on it goes. To a man, I barely tolerated all of these basement trolls and secretly felt sorry for them.

Brilliant story, Ian!  :lol:  :lol: And what harm has Ian ever done to Fart that he deserves to be harrassed no matter what he writes, even when it's funny and brilliant as fuck? Digger > Nigger and an Fuck > Shut!  :lol:

Speaking of Brian, he sent me this some weeks ago, I think accidently, as I don't really know him.

suck poppet

I just think of manchild 3, the "king buzzo is my god" guy, I guess that's me. Brian sounds kind of bitter though. I tried to be sober, clear, and concise when I was spending hard-earned (by my girlfriend) money on music by a band he ostensibly loves. And on a poster by an artist who I never would have heard of if he hadn't put a melvins cd in his last comic. I'm sure many people on this board are in bands or have been and I've sure many of us have been at the merch table putting up with the drunks. His problem, unlike mine, is that people actually like the band and want to buy stuff, the nerve! Anyway, he still seemed nice enough when I was dealing with him and he's right about eugene, what a bunch of mongoloids.
What's that? Not me. Fuck that, I'm a cat.

Jared eats pizza? Dale picks his nose? I eat pizza and pick my nose! Holy fuck!

Oh MAN I'd love to know what kind of pizza Jared likes. But seriously.. I guess the only creepy freak / freaky creep criterion I satisfy is that I come on here. I was pretty pumped for the show I went to, wanted to talk about it.. Seemed like kind of a logical thing to do. I don't have the money or inclination to be an Official Obsessive and Picky Collector of Melvins Merchandise, although I do appreciate the chance to buy a nice band t-shirt and poster when I get the chance. I rarely drink at shows because I hate missing songs to take a piss..... I think I'm clean. I was worried I'd have to check into some kind of clinic and get a swab put in the end of my pee-pee.

I can understand Walsby's frustration with some folks to be honest. I've witnessed the guys he talks about, and selling merchandise is a stressful and hectic job. I'd be pissed off with a month and a half's worth of shit from drunks and nerds too. Why do people mention they're from the Melvins.net? It doesn't make you any more of a fan than anyone else.. I guess I'm a partial nerd, because meeting any of the Melvins would be kind of a thrill for me, but I love their music, I have a lot of respect for them. They're cool guys with awesome, inspiring talent.

I think it's all about just doing your thing without bothering anyone.

newsflash:   walsby is a member here as well.   my name is pretty simple.  perhaps he would recognize it.  and he did.

plus I feel really cool like maybe I am a bigger fan than the losers in line outside the joint who said "I hope the melvins play music tonight and not just noise.  I was at this show once and they played feedback for like an hour straight.  dude.. it was crazy!"   8-[

"No way, dude!"
"Way!"

I for one think that no one needs to justify, classify or analyze their obsession with Melvins.  We're all friends, we love the Melvins;  I guess anyone here can be overly fanatic at times.  So what?  It's all good.  Peace!
Everything was beautiful, and nothing hurt.

Centripetal core of soul sojourn the field vibrates to absolution. I climb toward the sun to breathe the universal.

Some of his books read like personal journals; I wonder if he ever gets creeped out knowing millions  of people know what happened in his personal life?
