Robert Flynn's Diary

Posted on February 12, 2008

Music, music, mu-sick.
What a boring time in music it is. Watched the VMA's... Boring. If it ain't The Vines ripping off Nirvana, it's The White Stripes just SUCKING ASS with a capital S. And "Everyones" trying to look punk. The Hives were pretty alright. Eminem's performances were cool. But what's up with Eminem's beef with Moby? I mean, I love Eminem, got all his records, I think the guy's hysterical. I don't even like Moby, but I mean... The worlds most "controversial" rapper is in a beef with Moby? Moby!!!!??? Christ, the guys some techno, hippie, vegan, who probably weighs 95 lbs. Wet! This is his arch enemy? I mean c'mon!? Who's next? Greg the Bunny? Malcom in the Middle? Kermit the Frog? Moby's already said, he doesn't want to fight him, Eminem was just being a bully. And you know what? I don't like bullies. So hey ya big bully, why don't you pick on someone your own size. I'll fight your ass, and I don't need to bring 2 henchmen along to do it. And maaaaannn…..Michael Jackson creeps me the f#%k out.

Went to Ozzfest, it was alright.

Highlights:
Meshuggah - They were awesome, they've grown so much from that first tour we took them on.
Hatebreed - Oh my god. Monstrous.
P.O.D. - Rocked! ( surprisingly )
System - They were incredible, getting a little into hippie territory, but they're such a great band.
Zack Wyldes Guitar Solo - God Damn, he is sick.

Low points:
Missing Ill Nino, Glassjaw, and Mush-roomhead (who played at the communist hour of 9:25 AM )
7 bucks a beer = Alcoholic terrorism.

The three of us have been writing like crazy. We have about 10 songs / rough ideas written, and 3 others that have already been sent to the scrap yard for parts. Mostly music, some lyrics, and lots of working titles, such as:
- Junn - Junn
- Buh-duh-duh-duh-duh
- Metallica eat your heart out -A.K.A.- Kick you when you're up
- Judas Priest

A couple of semi real ones:
- Monster
- All Those Things Left Unsaid
- Fall In Line
- Pins and Needles

I felt like on Supercharger a certain someone was saying things to the press like 'Supercharger is heavier than Burn My Eyes". I want to make it clear right now. We will not mislead anybody, our new material is not "heavier" than Burn My Eyes. It is Heavy as hell, but it is not "heavier" than BME. Make no mistake about it, it is sick as hell. And believe me, it wipes the floor with ANYTHING that was on the VMA's last night. It's exciting, kinda reminds me of …"And Justice For All" - era Metallica, meets "Wall"- era Pink Floyd, not sure why. Others have said it kinda has a Swedish Metal kinda vibe, still tripping on that one. It's hard to put into words, but I can say this. It ain't boring, and it ain't a bunch of re-hashed Nirvana riffs, It ain't a bunch of suck ass White Stripes, it ain't a bunch of pretend to look punk while singing shiny pop tunes.

And....... "It ain't about no trout".
