KSE has been dead to me for quite a while now - NH I know what you mean about needing to be "in the mood" for certain bands. Then there are certain bands that GET you in the mood. Wink wink.

PS...I think the lamest thing ever is picking on someone's spelling while simultaneously remaining an anonymous non-member and ignoring your own tragic grammar. The end.

^ Haha, yepp. I count eight errors in that chick's post, not that it matters anyway... But if you're picking on someone for what's probably just a typo and you mess up that much in a couple sentences, it's pretty silly.

I guess that's what happens when people listen to Deftones.

POW!

ya brother, cipo il italiano is quite the looney character indeed....crazy little dude fetches like a dang retriever dog, demands to be chased and chases back, and don't even use his claws during battles---but he bites like hell!!

ya, we'll put the world out when its 'cue is gonna happen...we'll probably try to do it around a good METAL show in the smell-A area....there should be something decent we can work with....and bring all them good cubano specialties!!

and i'm just a damn honkey brother, but grew up here in northern NM in a spanish and indian town....and man, back in the day them fellers did NOT like us whities at all! we had us a hell of a lot of good dust ups over the years :)

its a hell of a lot better now, but still a bit of a racist undercurrent round these parts.... i don't buy it and idon't fvckin tolerate it---fvckin d!ckheads come in all colors, shapes an sizes ;) ...but much more importantly, so do the cool folk

cheers a ti, mi cubano hermano! \m/ x\m/
