POLARIS

CONGRADULATIONS TO KARENZA FOR WINNING THE 2010 POLARIS PRIZE. I knew since I bought your demo cassette in 1998 at the Oakville YMCA at the show where Dave B took his underwear off and made a speech about public nudity, that you guys would one day turn into a great band. Even after you guys broke edge and made a speech about it on stage!

I saw Karenza in a basement in 1997 with 12 Hour Turn before anyone had heard of them. I don't remember what they sounded like, but I do remember that I liked Spread The Disease better.

I was at the secret show they played in 1993 in a basement in Preston with the Dickies and the Swing Kids.

I never did win the S.O.B. leave me alone/don't be swindle ebay auction that wound up going for $56.77 US dollars for a lousy fuckin cd.
Of course I downloaded it off of a blog site then. At least Tottsuan has passed away so I don't need to worry about him invading my home and murdering my family for 'bootlegging' S.O.B.
And yes, I am aware that this isn't really what 'bootlegging' is, as there is no profit to be made for the artist from an out of print product. Are you aware of this?
And you, who mentions the awesome Dickies alongside the shitty-ass Swing Kids: who truly PIONEERED (I said pioneered, not invented you cocknose missile face) coloured vinyl and made it a regular thing for their band? Who reaps the rewards of this coloured vinyl thing today?

I like the Pink Lincolns way more than Roach Motel, Hated Youth (well, kinda), or the Belching Penguins. The Jackie Papers kinda suck at times, though.

Back to the subject at hand: Protoculture should definitely figure into this plotline a little better than it does. The Invid? What the fuck? Why am I watching this?? WHy does it rain everytime I take a vacation? NANCY! NANCY!! NANCY!!! WHAAAATS HAPPENING TOOOOO MEEEEEEE????!!!!!!!

I agree about showing love to the Dickies. I have to say that I do not give a rats testicles about coloured vinyl, different editions and so on. I just want to hear the music. I don't know who benefits from coloured vinyl, eBay?

Just dropping by to say yo yo wuttup peeps.
I also want to say good luck writing a better song than Couple Tracks or making a record as cool as Looking For Gold.
You've hit the pinnacle so you can now retire from Fucked Up (If you choose not to, though, I will still try my best to balance purchasing past/future Fucked Up records with avoiding bankruptcy).
Also also, do you guys have any plans for playing Arizona? My good friend down in AZ feels constantly stifled when he reads about yet another one of his favorite bands refusing to play AZ and never stops talking about how cool it'd be if Fucked Up would play. You'd be giving this child the gift of a smile.

Who is Karenza, what is the Polaris Prize and why does anyone care?

Karenza are ex-Agnostic Front / Creedance / Extreme Noise Terror and the Polaris prize I think was won recently by Tegan And Sara.

Again...WHO CARES? I know what the Polaris Prize is, I know that Kwanka won it, I know who Karenza is and I also know that Fucked Up won it last year and unless you donated every cent to charity you can't bash any other band for winning it (or losing it for that matter) and you can't make fun of the prize either....I saw SNFU 25 years ago....so what? Again, WHO CARES? There are more important things to worry about than who you saw when. It seems like every other entry on this blog (and the other Fucked Up blogs for that matter too) turns into a pissing contest about what bands are cool and what bands are not cool. I do agree with you when you say you don't care about the colour of vinyl. I just want to hear the music too. I guess maybe I am a hypocrite like all of you because I still own and buy Fucked Up's music. Again, WHO CARES? But I guess it is your blog and you are entitled to say what you want and I can do the same if I wish. I am just dissappointed with Fucked Up's attitude at shows (and on their blogs too) that you (except for maybe Jonah) think you are all better than other people (including the crowd at your shows) because you saw these guys when and so forth. Maybe both times I have seen Fucked Up (I am from Edmonton and I missed your show earlier this year) were having off nights? Or maybe me being 40 is considered old? I don't know I have a really bad cold so maybe I am having an off day? Again I am as much a hypocrite as you all are - 1- by even making abig deal out of this immature pissing contest of a blog and -2- if I really wanted to make a statement to you I would stop buying you records and CDs. Again, WHO CARES? Old news move on. It is your blog you can do what you wish. Maybe I should do the same and blog about all the bands I saw "back in the day?" But what do I know? After all I am the one with your logo tattooed on me. WHO CARES? Me being a fat, tattooed, balding, loner poet is not the crowd you want buying your music and you want sheep who agree with you 24/7 just like every other band? Everybody on this planet wants someone to agree with them 24/7. Personally I want someone to call me on my bullshit and I would hope that Fucked Up (except for maybe Jonah he is the only one who seems like a nice person to chat with) too would want to be called on their bullshit, and that is what I am doing here. But in the end, WHO CARES?

Fucked Up's members having seen cool bands does not make them cooler than everyone. Them being hands down one of the most phenomenal music groups in the history of the world makes them cooler than everyone else.
Punks like Fucked Up. Hipsters like Fucked Up. 40 year-old balding loner poets like Fucked Up. God likes Fucked Up.
WHO CARES? I care, motherfucker!

Sorry to waste your time. I guess some of your insular humour I don't get and I look no more of an idiot than people who use terms like, "twee" & "broke edge." I guess if I wanted to waste my time (and again your's as well) I would google these terms. I was trying to play the devil's advocate but most times I blurt stuff out that needs better explanation. What's done is done. Again, sorry to waste your time. Pissing off the world, 6 "Fucked Up" hipsters at a time.

5 hipsters at a time. I wasn't pissed off, I thought it was funny. And I'm 37 so I'm too old to be a hipster.

I would just like to point out that this angry Corey guy is an incredibly shitty artist. Wow. That spoken word. Those photos. That digital artwork. Just. Wow. All credibility out the window.

Well, it’s amazing. The miracle has been done. Hat’s off. Well done, as we know that “hard work always pays off”, after a long struggle with sincere effort it’s done.
