    Even old Xin Zhao, completely broke the game
    Why they changed it, I can't say
    Summoners liked it better that way

    So take me back to my ELO
    No, you can't go back to your ELO

    Riot rule-of-thumb is "Don't be jerks."

    I've seen them live 4 or 5 times. The best show was inside a record store the day before an evening show, which I also went to. They played Minimum Wage and had a real whip they were cracking. We were all crammed in the aisles in the back of the store watching them play in a corner, but it was very up close and personal. Cool stuff.

    I saw them at least twice in Texas, in Houston and Austin, before I moved to California. It may have been more times, can't quite remember. Maybe they don't come down that way anymore, though. That was a long time ago.

    I don't remember all the places I saw them. I know once was what used to be called the Vatican in Houston, or maybe it was the Abyss at the time. Pretty sure I saw them at Emo's in Austin.

I've only seen them twice, once with Jo Co and the other, some old racist guy and his (grand?)daughter opened for them(it was weird). Both were incredible.

    I love Cast Your Pod. Their B-Side collections usually have great experimentation, but I think most of CYPttW is still experimental, but not out and out bizarre like some stuff on Miscellaneous T or Long Tall Weekend. I love "We Live In A Dump" and "Your Boyfriend Now"

    The old racist guy you mentioned... did he go by the name Brian Dewan?
