Judge rules city can bar Occupy Wall Street tents and tarps from Zuccotti Park after evictions  (NYDN)

Judge rules city can bar Occupy Wall Street tents and tarps from Zuccotti Park after evictions  – NY Daily News.

So what more than an alternative form of camping is this “occupy” movement? All they do is publicly expose their lack of culture, manners and knowledge of history.

Parroting Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mao and maybe on a good day Obama doesn’t start to change anything, it merely makes you a complete prat. Somebody tell them they’re all part of the machine.

Great to see the commies are getting a taste of reality. And in reality, communism never works.

Dream Theater – End the drama!

BLABBERMOUTH.NET – DREAM THEATER Keyboardist: Writing Without PORTNOY ‘Gave Us More Freedom To Do What We Wanted’.

Having sat on my mouth for long enough, I’ve had enough of Rudess talking smack about Mike Portnoy and have to again add my own $0.02:

“I don’t want to be limited by other people’s desires or abilities.”

Guess what, that’s what being in a band is all about. It’s all about finding compromises and working as a team. Just because you never really got things your way is no reason to lash out like that. Mike and the Johns were there from day 1, you were not, period.

” (…) nailing down a show *…)”

And in the process becoming boring and predictable. Come on Jordan, you’re not fooling anyone here. In the absence of Mike who drove you to excel you’ve become complacent. All you guys can manage different setlists and if the techs can’t manage, fire them and find ones who can cope. I’m sure Trey Anastasio can recommend a few.

“We think the fans will really enjoy it more that way.”

Practically all fans who aren’t hermits would disagree with you there, Jordan.YouTube does a good job of spreading the wealth doled out in every city.  I could listen to the same setlist again and again, but when I pay to go to shows and travel to see more, I expect more from alleged badasses.

“he led this band for quite a number of years and did a good job”

Err… he had always led DT. For 25 years! And a good job?! If his performance was good, Petrucci’s is abysmal!

In conclusion: Don’t get me wrong, I love the new album and I enjoyed the gigs I did see this summer. But I also love the Adrenaline Mob EP and Testimony 2 a great deal. So quit biting the hand that fed you and bury that hatchet. All that energy would be much better spent on resurrecting Ytsejam Records and everything else you guys have not been doing since Mike left.

Happy New Year!

So here’s my obligatory NYE post. And just like 10 years ago, I’ll remind you that it’s NOT the end of a decade, only the end of another year. Year 0 only exists in retrospect, so therefore this decade still has another year left.

That being said, enjoy yourselves, and let’s make 2010 an even better year!

White House Says Times “Guilty of Gross Negligence” — What Else Is New? :: Boycott The New York Times

White House Says Times “Guilty of Gross Negligence” — What Else Is New? :: Boycott The New York Times

Brilliant article, especially the first paragraph, because it sums up the archetype of liberal attitudes: If something bad happens on a Republican’s watch it’s always his or her fault but if it’s a Democrat it either didn’t happen, was magic (like the beginning of evolution) or again a Republican’s fault.

Growing Pains for a Deep-Sea Home Built of Subway Cars – New York Times

Wonderfully hypocritical… The hippies of NYC are polluting the ocean. Screw the reef, how about some Guiness book worthy artwork?
