    @Mitch – that is fuckin cool about the Greek tix artwork

    a subtly homage pay

    plus i didn’t think any of the artwork on the tix they sent me (and there was a lot) was that creative or much thought put into

  4. Mr. Completely Says:

    “How about how the Greek tix have some serious GD lightning bolts up on that”


    “I really hope to get to hang with some of you freaks at the Greek and get real loose.”

    I’m so there.

  5. angryjoggerz Says:

    Mr. C, looking forward to hanging with you, brother.

    nice rec Joe…i have been a fan of Banksy’s approach for years. Of all the vandals he’s in the top 3 for smarts/wit/craftiness/approach and aesthetic.

    not my fave visual artist, but i give him props for the reasons i just mentioned.

    now, if we wanna talk graf…that’s another board takeover a la the drum’n’bass interlude a few days back.

    chicago peeps: deep breaths. open minds. i told silly pretty much the same. make your shows count. of the many many things i’ve read on this board here’s what i’m focusing on for Sunday:

    leave your shit at the turnstile
    open ears open mind
    the experience is the sum of the parts
    be the band
    energy exchange
    get the fuck down
    pop and lock
    hail eris (wish i knew what that was all about…jks)

  18. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Butter- how old is your daughter? Is she going to all the shows with you? That’s awesome. Have a great flight.

  19. Mr. Completely Says:
