Gah, so who is spreading shit about me this time? Apparently I’m now homophobic and transphobic according to my ex (based on some bs he’s heard from some other Neanderthal).
What the fuck?? Who keeps spreading this bullshit about me? I genuinely want to know, I need to know who’s ass needs kicking. If you fucking have problems with me, come up and say it to me.
Everyone that knows me (that you’re spreading this shit to), knows you’re talking out your fucking ass. So just come and talk to me so we can sort out whatever your fucking problem is.
Fucking. Wankers. I don’t know who’s worse, the fuck knobs that spread this shit or the incredibly stupid people who believe it (people who supposedly “know” me). Feels like fucking high school.
At which point does a plant stop being a plant and is instead classified as something more “alive”?
At which point do you regard an animal as being an animal? How many senses, reactions and survival instincts/skills does something need before it lands into the animal category??
I’ve been thinking about this a lot since there have been a dozen studies recently conducted showing how much more “alive” plants are than what we imagined.
Some plants can hear themselves being eaten and react to it. Some plants have elaborately controlled self-defence mechanisms and some even use biological weapons to suck in their prey THEN capture them and consume them.
There are more processes going on in some of these plants then there are in various species of insects. So yeah… At which point do you start classifying things like this as a living animal rather than a living plant?
You can’t say “it needs a brain”, because a large percentage of animals don’t have them. You can’t say “it has to breathe air” because not all animals require that either. I can’t find a single definition which excludes these plants as being animals. Does somebody have one?
On that note, what do vegetarians think about this sort of thing? How do you define what is a living animal and what is a plant?
David B: So I’m joined with the 2 droogs which make up Dr Peppernickels Orphanarium of Obese Aristocrats
David B: Did I get that right?? It’s a cunt to remember how to spell?
George (DPOOA): Sup
Adam (DPOOA): Sup
Adam (DPOOA): My Dick is huge. Put that in your interview so people can know how sexy I am
Adam (DPOOA): Peppernickle
David B: Ok, I knew there was a fuck up somewhere.
David B: It’s your fault for having a long, difficult name.
Adam (DPOOA): A fault, or a strategy?
George (DPOOA): Everything about DPOOA is long and hard
Adam (DPOOA): Haha
David B: Ok, I’ll start with something that I always struggle with. And since I spend a bunch of time ranting about you to friends, I need an answer - how do you define your sound?
George (DPOOA): What would you say Deebs.?
Adam (DPOOA): I think you defined it pretty well when you said it was like primus on a bunch of valium
George (DPOOA): Psychedelic 90’s funk rock.
David B: Sedative funk ?
George (DPOOA): cock bloack rock.
George (DPOOA): block*
David B: The Primus on Valium thing sounds about right and pretty accurate.
George (DPOOA): because if you listen to us you’ll never get laid
Adam (DPOOA): All of this
David B: *cough cough* I’ll beg to differ.
George (DPOOA): dave says as he chokes on both or our flacid cocks
David B: It’s something which could potentially happen. You’re not playing at the same time as Anti-Thesis as EarCandy
Adam (DPOOA): I’m listening…
David B: Speaking of which, you’re part of the alumni, you’ve played EarCandy before. Looking forward to your second experience?
David B: I seem to remember Henri being particularly drunken the last time you guys played, I’d be surprised if he remembers it haha.
David B: I just remember pain.
Adam (DPOOA): Yes. The first time was sensitive and gentle. This time will be rough and primal (no pun intended)
George (DPOOA): I’m pumped to be smashing out some jungle beats on a 2 stage venue
Adam (DPOOA): I got pretty drunk and intense that night I think
David B: I think everyone did, that was a weird event that time round.
David B: I’m keen to see you guys on the Globes big stage, with the amazing PA and lights they have set up.
Adam (DPOOA): House wine bro.
George (DPOOA): previous ear candy, i could swear i had 2 drum kit
George (DPOOA): kits*
David B: haha
George (DPOOA): but coundnt hit either of then
George (DPOOA): them*
David B: EarCandy #3 was pretty special. Despite Henri trying to partially play on a imaginary kit, a lot of people got into the weirdness.
George (DPOOA): control in drinking will be my key a great show at this upcoming E.C
David B: I had a bunch of the people who had stuck around asking about you.
David B: You’re playing first on the main stage this time round, I think you won’t have enough time to get that hammered haha
George (DPOOA): My mother always said I was SPecial
Adam (DPOOA): I liked it. It always helps when one’s being is fragmented by drudgery
George (DPOOA): Wooooh main stage
David B: It’s going to be pretty surreal seeing you guys up there. It’s a bit a difference from Kerbside or the PoW haha.
Adam (DPOOA): I hope that one day these people that like us buy some albums off us
David B: Speaking of surreal, do you have any new stuff coming up?
David B: Demand that they do!! I don’t think many people know you’ve got stuff for sale.
David B: You guys are pretty quiet on pushing that.
George (DPOOA): hopefully some well planned disguises will burn our sounds and image into the corruptible brisbane youth.
Adam (DPOOA): We have a song called What is real that we’ve been cranking out lately amongst others which are pretty bad ass and frog the standard fare for us but with like to think where tighter now
Adam (DPOOA): *prog
George (DPOOA): tight like a dog.
David B: The sound has definitely evolved a bunch since I first watched you guys play.
Adam (DPOOA): Using voice recognition to try to keep up enjoy the miss interpretations
Adam (DPOOA): miss interpretations
David B: hahaha, smart-phone hell haha
Adam (DPOOA): Indeed!!!
George (DPOOA): Smart phones are 4 fegits
George (DPOOA): Praise the master no ph race
David B: I’ll cut you.
Adam (DPOOA): We have gotten a little harder which is the direction henry wanted to go in after our first demo so you could say we have achieved 1 of our goals
David B: With only being a 2 piece (bass & drums), are you finding it harder to move towards that sound?
Adam (DPOOA): It’s not hard for me 2 play a heavy sound on the base i have always lean towards power cords and distortion so in a way it’s easy for me to crank out a full sound especially because i play a 6 String
David B: Yeah your bass is a beast.
George (DPOOA): I think Db and I are pretty com[[atable with our taste and direction of heavy music.
Adam (DPOOA): You should totally believe in all these voice recognition message apps it makes me sound awesomely
David B: It works really well, I think that’s something which surprises alot of people when they first see you. They don’t know what to expect seeing only a bass and drummer setting up.
Adam (DPOOA): Retarded
David B: They’re normally sucked in within’ a couple of songs though.
David B: Fuck your phone db.
George (DPOOA): heavy snares and jungle drum fills with loud symbols always seems to compliment the drudging destortion and heavy rythm of Db’s magical bass skills
Adam (DPOOA): Ya… I fig that people dug us
Adam (DPOOA): Awww thanks brosef
David B: Yeah you two compliment your stuff together fairly well.
Adam (DPOOA): My phones name is Eugene because its so special
Adam (DPOOA): George is my muse
George (DPOOA): I think one of the keys to our success as a small time brisbane band is that when we get off of that stage nobodies really sure what the fuck they just watched, leaving them desiring more of our creative juices
David B: Now you both do solo stuff as well, is there anything in the future for Sex Criminal Face or Filthy Robot?
David B: Yeah I think that’s pretty true haha
David B: Particularly in suburban venues such as the PoW. I was surprised how well you went down with the locals at the last ‘Support Your Locals’ gig.
Adam (DPOOA): Sex criminal face can be seen frequently on the streets of west end (either busking or shooting speed balls) and i’m working on a new solo project called fancy face which so far is manly electronic music i hope to have an album completed within the near future which i will release so nobody can listen to it because they don’t care
George (DPOOA): As far as F.R. goes i’ve put him on the back burner and am in the process of conceptualising a George Crimmins and friends solo album, hopefully guest starring most and if not all of my muso mates and cratives alike
Adam (DPOOA): i hope to have an album completed within the near future which i will release so nobody can listen to it because they don’t care
David B: I feel tingling sensations where I shouldn’t from both of those new projects
Adam (DPOOA): Sorry
David B: Feeling a little unloved Adam ?
Adam (DPOOA): Mainly or manly, but its not the latter
Adam (DPOOA): I just dont think there’s any point releasing music anymore i just want to play live but that is a pity because i really enjoyed making studio music
David B: I’m feeling baked so that went over my head. I’m now trying to figure out how to feel unloved in a manly way.
George (DPOOA): The search for our souls often leaves us in places where we are sceptical of our own talents, desires, and artistic direction.
David B: Only the first part of your comment went over my head Adam, the last part magically
David B: appeared as I pressed enter haha.
Adam (DPOOA): I am very keen to play on georges news solo project
David B: I think people are caring less about purchasing albums and such, it’s frustrating, but I think it’s to be over come.
George (DPOOA): I guess im keen to lol
David B: I’ll try and worm my way in like a parasite.
David B: I’ll attach myself to some of your food then next you know I’m playing on your album.
Adam (DPOOA): I figure when people realise that i am the most amazing musician who has ever lived people will want to buy all of my million albums from my back catalogue and then i will use the money to destroy all cities and replace them with rainforests
David B: Fact.
David B: I think that plan is 100% going to happen.
George (DPOOA): haha
Adam (DPOOA): i’ve always wanted to eat david b t on a sandwich maybe with some mustard
David B: I am the mustard man.
David B: Or something.
Adam (DPOOA): I can hear a song in mustard man
David B: It will be amazing and mustardy. Sticky and sludgy like a good drone song.
David B: Ok, I guess I should wrap this up before this spirals into mustard. I’ve been finishing with the same clichéd question to everyone.
David B: What’s your favourite alcohol / drug / food. Good and fucking simple.
George (DPOOA): speaking of music been getting the worst fucking tinnitus lately,wear and tear of drums I guess
David B: Get some ear plugs captain pain.
Adam (DPOOA): My favourite alcohol is non alcoholic my favourite drug is mushrooms and my favourite food changes every day because i don’t like repetition
George (DPOOA): Drink BEEEEEEER, smoke WEEEEED, eat NOAAACHOOO’S and fuck taaaacooos
Adam (DPOOA): Haha
David B: You’ve definitely been DPOOA. Thanks
George (DPOOA): and everything in life is 50/50
Adam (DPOOA): Thanks David looking forward to that sandwich
