Sam, wake up.

-What's wrong?

- F***.

-What'd you do, tiger?

-When did we crash?

You tell us, a**hole.

-I guess I fell asleep.


With the engine running.

-Fully charged.

Did you kill the battery too?

-You hear the radio?

-There's a skating rink

about 11 miles from here.

Big parking lot.

-Ice skating

or rollerskating?

-Just says they're open.



Hockey players whoop more ass.

-I don't know, dude.

I've seen some pretty

bad-ass roller skaters.

At 7:
00 am?

All right,

I'll come with.





Hey, I work nights,

but I'll catch up

with you guys for breakfast.


-I'm in 2-r up the stairs.

Just crash wherever.

Uh, park in the side lot.

Rear doors tight to the walls

so no one steals your sh*t.

-All right.



These all have mushrooms.

-This dude's legit.


Why? 'Cause he wakes up

at 5:
00 in the morning

to put jizz in his hair?



No. He's true.


Who you callin'?

-Is that your business?

-I get the bills.

-I'm going to bed.

-We're gonna drink.



You were the first

to fall asleep?

-Okay, I'm with the ain't rights

from Washington, D.C.

-Uh, technically, we're

from Arlington.


Nice. Uh, and this is

for seaside hcfm.

-Not for the zine?

I'll do

a print version for that,

but this will run

on our college station.

Uh, if that's cool.



-So, you guys working

on anything new?


Mm, yeah. A few songs.

Maybe enough for,

like, a seven inch.


Sweet. Will you

actually press one?

-Yeah, if we can afford it.


Yeah, no, I really dig

the analog style.

Uh, which brings

me to the fact

you guys are hard to find.

Why no social media presence?


That's because

booking more shows,

selling more records

would blow.

-It's not hard rock.

-No one wants to starve, but...

When you take it all virtual,

you lose...

The texture.

-What do you mean "texture"?

-Just... you gotta be there.

The music is for effect.

It's time and aggression...

-Technical wizardry.

-And it's shared live...

And then it's over.

The energy can't last.

-Unless you're iggy pop.

-Yeah, well good for him,

but I don't think I wanna

be in my 70's still listening

to minor threat.

-But tiger does.

-I won't live to be 70, so...

-Okay, so, uh,

this is a good seg

into one of my traditions.

Uh, for each of you,

name your desert island band.

-Only one?


If I were to

say black sabbath,

would I get

ozzy and dio?

-No caveats.

Just name the band.



No, the damned.


Oh, f*** it. Misfits.

Poison idea.



That's a good one also.


Why don't you say

something, dude?


What about steely Dan?

-Hm. No, candlebox.

-He's a juggalo.

-Uh... uh...

Britney Spears?

-Hey-- hey, you--

you-- you're gonna

edit this, right?

-I can chop it up a bit.

Oh, you should

let it go raw, man.

-Um, when is this gonna air?

Like, maybe we should

plug the show?

-Yeah. Um...

My last show

at the muni center

didn't end well.

Uh, lots of vomit,

some fecal matter.

County commissioner got wind

and pulled my permit.

You guys were

already en route.

-No, you gotta

give us a kill fee.

-We went 90 miles

out of our way.

-I've got a backup lined up.

Um, lunch,

50% cut on the door,

and you guys would headline.

-Is anyone still on the bill?


Turn that sh*t off.

-I gave you my cut.

Uh, the house got theirs,

but I didn't--

-split four ways,

it's six bucks each.
