    Whenever I finish downloading some new bootstrapped tunes, I like to sit back on my futon, turn the lights low, hit track 1 and just mellow out…sometimes with a cool brew or a full bowl of good herb.

  2. Shes dead, Jim said

    Hey Joe!
    I would have to say clubs. All those hot, sweaty bodies writhin around while you listen to new tunes. It’s like Heaven…only it feels like Hell. heh heh heh

  3. Tiberius said

    Hey She’s dead, Jim, are you a Star Trek fan? I saw the Star Trek reference in another thread and now I see your name. Have you ever heard of Net Trekker? Check out my other post for more information, it’s in the Guardian of Forever thread–the one about asking a question. I’d love to talk Trek with you if you’re a fan!

    Vang duq par agh lobha!*

    *If you’re a true Trekkie, you’ll understand my Klingon.

    Warp factor faggot!

  5. Tiberius said

    Man, I can’t find a translation for that! I’ll have to kick it over to my one friend, she speaks fluent Klingon. (and Elvish too!)

    So what series is your favorite? I’m partial to Next Generation myself, but I hate Wesly Crusher! Although, I did meet him at a convention once, he’s really a nice guy–not what I expected after seeing him on TV.

    Live Long and Prosper!

  6. Amok Time said

    Well, I speak fluent Klingon, but it so wouldn’t be “dharmak” to reveal what it means. But I would have to say there are no other shows beyond the original series. I’m a purist… and even by your “Live Long and Prosper” comment, it seems you are too. I like to attend the conventions and such… have you ever been?

  7. Mac Attack said

    Hey Amok! I’m a fan myself, but I just looked up what you said and this is what it translated into: “Take action stab dislike ? disobey”

    If you don’t believe me, go here: http://usseagle2185.tripod.com/Klingonsimwpbatt.htm

    If you guys want to have a Star Trek thread, that’s up to the powers that be, but at least keep it honest. I could be pretending to speak Antican or Selay here, but you don’t see me doing it.

  8. Baba Gooey said

    I’m back! I had to wait for that weird guitar post to move down the page… the thing was killing my eyes.

    Hey, Star Trek is terrible. How can you guys even like that show. Battlestar Gallactica is sooooooooooo much better. Hey, anyone ever notice that the enemies end in “on”? Klingon. Cylon. Weird, right?

  9. Casey Jones said

    Yo Ben!
    Where’s all the pot smoking talk you promised me? This site’s all about Star Trek, man!

  10. chippy_the_k said

    Cripes! I’ve been waiting a few days to post here until Mindy moved on, and now the Star Trek freaks have taken up residence here!

    It’s not even about music anymore…

  11. Casey Jones said

    It’s not about smoking dope either, dude. A real letdown…

  12. Mindy-me said

    i’m still here bibby! i’m not talking here thoug… i’m not into star trek, isnt that show like 20 years old? watch american idol, at least its new and on twice a week!

  13. Peter Guzenya said

    Are we talking like where I like to sit and listen to music…cause if so, then that depends. If I’m by myself, all casual-style, I like to mellow out and put my feet up, chillout that way, right. If it’s with other homies around me, then it’s like lights on, get the music loud and swinging and bust it out, you know what I’m sayin?

  14. Big Ben said

    Man there is no telling where these messages are going to end up some days is there?

    I’ve already mentioned this is other messages I think, but I usually listen to new music in biker bars. Usually, the sound is pretty much the same, a little southern rock or blues. Most of the time, it’s just background music to hit some pool by, although every once in a while you hear something good enough to get your lighter out for.

  15. Peter Guzenya said

    Now THAT’S what I’m talkin’ ’bout. A little “spliff riff” and it’s time for da ganga!

  16. Casey Jones said

    Hey Ben,
    I accidentally dropped my real e-mail into earleier posts. How do I make sure that don’t get out? I don’t need more pot posts getting out over the web. My mom’s gonna kill me.

  17. Big Ben said

    Don’t sweat it dude, no one can see the email address you use.

  18. Peter Guzenya said

    Cept when you give out yer old lady’s address in that last post!

  19. Casey Jones said

    Cool… hey, did you get my last post about coming over? It’s all good. Just don’t wake up Goldy or she’ll bark. Come around the back, or better yet, call me when you’re 5 minutes away and I’ll put my phone on vibe.

  20. Casey Jones said

    Dude… it’s like 12:07. Where are you at?

  21. Mindy-me said

    you know theres way too much of you talking about drugs around here! what’s wrong with ya all? the FBI could be listening to all this. I hope there are, you all belong in jail!!!!

  22. Casey Jones said

    I live in Amsterdam, little girl. It’s all legal over here.

  23. chippy_the_k said

    Casey, there is no way you live in Amsterdam. You clearly know Big Ben, who admits to living in the southern US and going to biker bars, plus you we waiting for him to come to your house last night. What was taking a plane over there? More proof that pot kills brain cells…

    Back to the question at the top of this thread: I usually find out about new music though friends and websites like this one. Most of my friends know what kind of music I like, so when they recommend something to me it usually works. Of course, it was friends that turned me on to this site and who knows what going on here…

    Dude, it was a Pulp Fiction reference. Don’t you get out much? Critisize my comments when you learn how to NOT post the same message twice!

  26. Randy Bot said

    I like listening to music in the car on my way home from work. I’m a commuter (90 minutes door to door) so I can usually listen to four albums worth of music in one day.

    Hey CJ!

  27. Shazbot Winx said

    I love joke albums. That’s where I get all my jokes from. Here’s one:

    What’s the difference between a BMW and a bunch of dead babies?

    I don’t have a BMW in my garage!

  28. Hasbeen Done That said

    That’s a great one! Here’s one (and if there are any mexican-Americans in the audience, I apologize…and get out of the country!)

    How does a Mexican know when it’s time to eat?
    His A-hole stops burning!

  29. Mac Attack said

    Hey guys, back to bootstrapping talk. This is supposed to be about finding new music and dowloading it to sell.

    Still, these jokes are pretty good. Hey Shawn, how about starting a Star Trek thread, a pot thread for those that partake and a joke thread for us? That way, we can keep our bootstrapping advice separate from out other hobbies.

  30. Peter Guzanya said

    Yeah man. I’m down wit’ that too. Post up somethin’ on smoke and what else? Chicks. Forget the Star Fag stuff, boys… no one watches that shit but shut-ins.

    Oh, and how ’bouta rap section where we can talk about some of the current flava, you know what I mean?

  31. Baba Gooey said

    Hey Shazbot, I have a few!

    Your momma’s so fat…
    she snacks between bites!

    Why do tampons have strings?
    So the crabs can bungee jump!

  32. Baba Gooey said

    I got another one! I got another one!

    What’s better than roses on your piano?
    Answer: Tulips on your organ.

  33. Hessinger said

    Hey Pete,
    The stuff posted here doesn’t have to be limited by musical style. The rhymes you posted on the About page were pretty cool actually. If you’ve goty some sites or artists (let’s try to stick to indepent stuff that’s not already on a major label) e-mail me at idea_man68@yahoo.com with suggestions.

  34. Baba Gooey said

    What about the joke thread?

  35. Baba Gooey said

    Never mind… never mind… I just found out that there won’t be a joke thread, so if you want to post jokes, just do it in other threads.

  36. Peter Guzenya said

    Sweet, brother. I may do jus’ that. Right now, I’m tryin’ to get my shit together and produce my own style of rap, you know? Get it together and puttin’ it on wax, so to speak. That’s kinda why I’m here. Any pointers on what to buy and shit to get my own stuff out there?

  37. wookie-huning-nookie said

    You know, I never listen to rap, mostly because I can’t understand a word of it. But I have to say, the stuff you’ve been putting up here is pretty good. Maybe Shawn should create a thread where people can post lyrics for the community to comment on.

  38. Gaga Googoo said

    Looking through your entire site, I can see that Ben was well respected and well-loved here. Thank you all for making him feel welcome.

  39. Shazbot Winx said

    Guys, I think we would all feel better with a good laugh to take away the pain.

    What do you get when you cross a gopher with a donkey?
    Assholes in your garden.

    That one was for you, Ben. RIP

  40. Shazbot Winx said

    Here’s another one that should cheer us up:

    A guy walks into the doctor’s office and says “Doc, I got two weird rings around my penis. What are they?”

    So the doc exams them and says, “Well,the first ring is lipstick.” The guy says “Yeah it was a pretty wild night last night.” The doc says, “I’ll say…the second ring is chewing tobacco.”

    RIP BEN!

  41. Monkeyseal said

    Just posting on all threads here. I like the site. I prefer having friends tell me what’s good because I don’t follow the trends.

  42. my left nut said

    Hey Shazbot’s girlfriend is so fat when the doctor found out she had a flesh eating disease her gave her 87 years to live!

    His girlfriend is so fat, when she goes out to eat she looks the menu and tells the waiter “OK”.

  43. Hasbeen DoneThat said

    These are great. I have one.

    What’s a Jewish dilemma?
    Answer: Free Bacon

  44. Will Ingham said

    What is this? Did I reach a music website or Gallagher’s website?!?

  45. chippy_the_k said

    If this was Gallagher’s website you wouldn’t find anything to laugh at, and you’d have watermellon juice on your keyboard…

    It’s true though, we have lost our way around here. Stick around though, things get back to music soon. (at least I hope)
