Yes, as opposed to fake Emo. There is such thing. Taking Back Sunday or The Get-Up Kids or Story of the Year or any of those ****** bands have nothing to do with Rites of Spring or Indian Summer or Mohinder. I wrote this over the summer of 8th grade. It's a little rough, but it explains what I mean. EDIT: I rewrote the last paragraph of this last year (or maybe it was the year before?). I just read through this again, and I seriously need to start over from scratch. But you get the idea.

Personal/political lyrics, DIY-as-**** ethics. They are or have been in a whole bunch of bands together: E.O.S. (Anarcho-Punk; put out a split 7"), DANGER (weird poppy/funny/political jawns I've seen compared to Beat Happening, put out a demo tape), The Sewin' Machines (the definition of lo-fi; demo tape), Rosa (mentioned before), and probably a few others. Die, Emperor! Die! has a good amount of stuff out: demo tape (out-of-print, but the best demo I've ever heard), split 7" with Burned Out Bright (out-of-print), live tape (from Burned Out Bright's last show), acoustic CD-R (including Hank Williams Sr., Minor Threat, Rites of Spring, and Leadbelly covers), split 7" with Toru Okada (this is impossible to get...the kid who put them out ripped off a bunch of people, including me, but he says he'll send them out eventually), and a song on The Microwave Says to the Pacemaker 2x7" (recently repressed, I believe; the originals, and maybe the represses, have an accidental lock-groove during the Die, Emperor! Die! song!!! ANGER!!!). They've got an upcoming split 10" with modern Blues legend William Whitmore.

The people who put their records and tapes out, Erika and Stewart AKA Friends Forever Records, are the best kids in the world. Every release they've put out is beautiful: hand-cut, hand-silkscreened, hand-numbered, hand-sewn, hand-folded, hand-painted...I can't think of any other label that takes the DIY aesthetic to heart as much as Erika and Stewart do. If you ever place an order with them, even if it's just for a 7" or a tape or something, you can always expect page-length (front and back) letters, candy, free hand-screened patches, etc. Great, great kids. If I ever met Erika in real life I'd hug her to death.

So yeah. Die, Emperor! Die! are awesome.
Do you know the Friends Forever website? I've been looking for it for a while but haven't been able to find it.

ps. you have awesome taste in music.

Was working on another unrequited mix. Just put it on the Pelican City vs Scanner EP to fall asleep to.

I don't think Friends Forever can keep a website around for more than a couple months, haha. The were orignally at diyhardcore.com, but that was bought by some porn producers or something. Then they had a Tripod site, but it didn't last long. Right now they're at http://friendsforeverrecords.tk and have been for a pretty long while. They've got a distro sale going on, and you can also order the one-sided Bravo ****ing Bravo 12" (awesome Emo/Hardcore ala Embassy or Constatine Sankathi, but I hear they've changed their sound a bit and now resemble Transistor/Transistor somewhat), Wilmot Proviso 10" (rough-voiced acoustic stuff played by the most awesome semi-homeless dude west of the Mississipp') and Die, Emperor! Die! / William Whitmore 10" for $17 total. None of these are out yet, but within the next two months they will be. I'm not sure if there's going to be more than just the one Die, Emperor! Die! song on the split 10", but even if it's only "Rachel, I'm a Wretched Idealist," it will still be totally worth the price...even if the recorded version is nowhere near as good as the live one. Oh yeah, I highly suggest the acoustic cd-r and live tape of Die, Emperor! Die!; they're only three bucks each and have awesome packaging. The live tape actually sounds REALLY good.

Here are some MP3s by Die, Emperor! Die!: http://www.hxcmp3.com/bands/4144/ There's one by Burned Out Bright as well. The DED material on the site doesn't really represent them very well; the songs from the demo and split 7" with Burned Out Bright are their best stuff in my opinion...lately they've been writing longer, slower, more drawn-out songs. Kirke is also doing some stuff with vocals that is a lot more whiney/high-pitched-screamy/out-of-control than before. I won't say it's bad, but definitely not as good as the earlier stuff. If you want the demo or the song from the 7", and don't mind a 56K transfer, feel free to hit me up on AIM: klutzonbroadway. Even if you don't dig the stuff that's on the MP3 site (which is understandable...Erika and Stewart chose some of their worst stuff to make available!), you might like the demo and split 7" songs...very different from that stuff.

This am I tried riding to Damn Yankes (remember them.. don't laugh).

Normally, I'll listen to Dream Theater. With songs lasting 15 min's+ and different beat counts throughout I find that they are great to ride high-low-high, intervals with. By the end of Scenes From a Memory you will be exhausted and starving to do it again the next day.

I primarily use giFT which under FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, Linux and Solaris. It uses a two-part client-server user interface which is to say that when you run giftd, you don't get a user interface. You can pick from among several available user interfaces including a console/text one called giFTcurs, which is the one I use the most. For Windows, I use an older copy of Kazaa Lite.

Khuon, do you happen to have the installer for that older version of Kazaa? ;-)
