Holy shit, it’s been a while. I’m sorry about all the delays. I was in Vancouver and Victoria the other week, and podcasting was one of the furthest things from my mind. My bad.
Well, aside from a badass new episode, I’ve got all sorts of long-term plans for this Doomed Society thing. I don’t want to jinx anything, so I’ll just tease you until I have a better idea of timelines and shit.
If you’re in the neighborhood, come on down to Dickens Pub in Calgary on March 11th (that’s next Monday, yo) around 9pm to listen to me force my shitty musical taste upon poor unsuspecting punters. Cheap drinks, and the chance to throw things at me. Continue reading
Alright! I’m back with another two hours of the best punk and crust shitz from the foul year of Our Lard, 2012. Same deal as last time, folks. I’ve gone through my collection (well, at least the parts that are on my computer) and dedicated each set to a particular release from 2012 that tickled my fancy. No hierarchical top ten nonsense. This ain’t Pitchfork, after all.
Well, here’s some of this shit that rocked my world in 2012: Continue reading
I’m writing this as I prepare to go write some songs for an as-yet named apocalyptic crust project. About fucking time!
Right, so when I last came at ya it was with a bit of a teaser for today’s episode. Well, not so much a teaser. More like a fucking fossil of an episode from the year 20whatever.
I recently acquired a USB turntable, so I’m now able to use pieces of my actual record collection to craft the show. Rad! This week is the first time I’ve used it for part of the show, and I’m pretty stoked on that. Especially since I’ve discovered the joy/addiction of Discogs. Yikes.
In other news, I’ve got another DJ night booked at Dickens Pub. This one should be a doozy, as it’s the last one before the
apocalypse end of the year. So if you’re in the area, come on down! December 10th at 9pm! You’re no camel… you want beer! Continue reading
Yeah, that’s the jist of it.
Here’s episode 15, ya dicks!
Hey everyone! It’s another fucking Sunday, and you know what that means – it’s time for another fucking episode of DOOMED SOCIETY!
Interesting news over at Brutal Existence Radio (you know… my host station!). Every Sunday afternoon, the punks take over Brutal Existence! Starting at 4pm EST, you get a double shot of my awful show, followed up by The Brothers Grimm Punkcast, then a double dose of Steve Stussey with Worst Case Scenario and Epicus Apocalyptus! Holy shit, the punx have been upped!
So… you really should put all of this shit on yer iPods, go for a long bike ride, and then go smash 40s in the streets of [enter major city here]. Or…whatever you do.
What else is there to say, really? We had the Calgary Stampede last week. It was shit, as usual – more dead horses, more tortured and exploited animals, more celebration of some faux-cowboy history, more drunken date-rapists. More of an excuse to hide in my bedroom and make some shitty podcasts, away from the stench of the world.
Enjoy the show, fuckos – download it NOW
Sorry I’m a few days late here, folks – turns out my free internet supply dried up, so I’m reduced to a very spotty so-called “connection” at the moment.
Enough of that – we’re in the middle of the work week, and we have a bunch of pretty awesome tunes by a bunch of bands who never went the Scion/Toyota route. Apparently that’s a rare thing these days. If you missed it, I went apeshit on the Twitter and the Facebooks about the whole subject. Long and the short of it is there are some bands who I might have played before on the show who I don’t feel right giving airplay (bandwidth-play? netplay? whatever) to for the forseeable future. That’s all I want to say right now. I don’t hold any personal grudges (I’m not Tim Yohannan, after all!), but I’m disappointed with decisions that have been made.
Right! Anyway – it’s a hot, sweltering July and summer is definitely upon us. Here’s the hottest corner of the hot, hot interwebs. The hottest tunes for even hotter times. Grab a beer or ten, turn the ipod dock up to like twenty (or whatever the highest volume level is – I still don’t know how those fucking things work) and get ready to rock the fuck out.
