A Song for Craig: Lurking in the Craigslist 'Musicians' Community [The Counties]

Posted By on Fri, Mar 15, 2013 at 12:03 PM

I thought you said FISH cover band.
  • "I thought you said FISH cover band."
Gluttony: way more fun than it ought to be! And today we once again gorge ourselves on the about-to-be-broken dreams of the lonely denizens of Craigslist. I ain't gonna lie: I'm not above laughing at the misfortunes, bad pictures and grammatical abominations of people who are willing to post these sorts of things for all to see. Cruel? Maybe. But what is music about besides putting your life, your hopes and your soul on display for the world to see? If you didn't want anybody to know about your failings, misgivings and irreparable personality flaws, why would you post these things on Craiglist? Fucked if I know. And yes, I get it, I'm going to hell for this. C'est la vie.

Now join us as we load up the hatin'-wagon and head for the outlying areas to visit our far flung friends in the the Craigslist "Musicians" Community.

* Bow before the dark lord and his Christmas Tree of Eternal Pain! And while we're here can somebody get our doughy little doom-bringer a T-shirt?

* Smyrna: We Can Count Real Good! Also, does this eye look infected?

* What they don't mention is that the last drummer quit because they made him be the caboose when they were pullin' the grandma-train. Sloppy 82nds was not what he meant when he said he was "in it for the chicks."

* It would be awesome if you were a chick but we'd like somebody that knows all the SCALES! Get it, SCALES? Like on a ... [crickets] ... whatever, man, we just want to play some Skynyrd covers.
