Hey, everyone! I finally did something with the old HFH website that has been down for two months. Aren't you excited? Yeah, neither am I.
Ok, so here is the deal. HFH is kind of dead right now because Duerst has moved onto bigger and better things, and I am moving out of state for college pretty soon. But like a pheonix rising from the ashes (or like NN2S) it will eventually come back alive as a super-zombie who will suck out your brains with a straw.
In the mean time, however, I've decided to collect all the HFH links I can find:
-HFH @ Purevolume: This website has a mini-bio, some pictures, and that stupid "Last Hour" clip for download.
-HFH @ PAHardcore: Same mini-bio and clip as purevolume, but we have a lot more listens on this one.
-HFH @ IUMA: This website has a really bad version of "Alone Forever" for download plus a couple of different mini-bios. There is also a comment page where people tend to post some weird stuff.
-HFH @ HXCmp3: This site has three songs on it. The first is the same "Last Hour" clip that is everywhere. The second is a clip of "Armory" which is a song I've always really liked and I don't think it's on any other site. The third is the live version of "Concerta" and I can't remember if it's good or bad. There is also a pretty cool picture of us on that page.
-HFH @ ACMEnoise: This site has a demo of "Concerta" and the ever-popular "Last Hour (clip)". Have fun with this one.
-HFH Message Board: No one uses this anymore, but I figured I'd put it on here anyway. I'm sure there are some interesting old posts.
-HFH LiveJournal Community: No one uses this anymore either (except to spam), but I think you might find some cool stuff on here.
Ok, well that is my list. If I think of anything more, I will upade it.
... I don't think it matters, though, because I don't think anyone is reading this.
First band... can't remember their name, but they were pretty bad anyway.
After that there was this guy called The Show is the Rainbow. It was pretty fucking weird, but also really fucking funny. I don't even know how to describe his music... my suggestion would be to google it and see if you can download anything.
Next up was El Oso. Good as usual. I mooched off the free merch like I do at all of their shows I go to. They are really good, but for some reason their music always makes me tired.
Finally was Troubled Hubble. In a word, they were awesome. I currently own 4 of their CDs and all of them are really good. They write songs about the weirdest shit, but it's always a good time when going to see them. I think they have "Nancy" up for download on their website, so go check that out. If you can find the song "I Love My Canoe" download that too.
"Lifted Or The Story Is In The Soil, Keep Your Ear To The Ground" By Bright Eyes. Yes, I know that's a long title, but it's a damn good CDs. "Bowl of Oranges" is an awesome song. I need to buy more Bright Eyes CDs.
Boxcar Racer's Self-Titled. I've been meaning to get this CD for awhile, I've just been too lazy until now. Good CD, but there are a few songs I think suck (I still think most of it is good).
Last night was Reel Big Fish. The songs were awesome and they played flawlessly... it was so much fun. Opening for RBF was Catch 22, RX Bandits, and Lucky Boys Confusion. Catch 22 was amazing, RX Bandits kept fucking up and weren't very good, and LBC was alright, but they only played one song that I actually knew.
Went to Warped Tour yesterday and it was amazing. I can't write about it all in here because there is just too much to say. I will however say that Taking Back Sunday was amazing... moshing to "Great Romances" was so much fun. I am looking forward to their new CD on the 27th.
Ok, so today I went to see Straylight Run. I never really listened to any of their stuff, but I figured I'd check them out. So, I go there and there's about 30-40 other people there, so it wasn't too bad. They come on stage and I'm blown away. They are amazing.
After the show, John Nolan was sitting on the side of the stage. I went over to him and shook his hand and told him that it was amazing. I'm so glad I went.
I have no idea why I am writing this story in this journal. I have another one... a better one. I guess I just wanted to share that story publicly (I doubt anyone reads this anyway).
The moral of the story is to go and check out Straylight Run. They have a bunch of free songs for download on their website: http://www.straylightrun.com
I've received the stickers finally... if you want one leave your address somewhere... Email it to me or something. If you already did, chances are that I have an envelope stuffed and addressed already, but it's sitting in my desk waiting for me to stamp it. Sorry... I'll send them out soon... I promise!
Neither the pins nor the stickers have arrived yet. That really sucks. So, I'll make sure to update when I get those. I'd expect them sometimes next week. Anyway, the old message board is back up, so click here for that. Have fun.
Today I broke down and ordered some pins. They are real cool. I don't feel like putting the designs online because I am lazy and I don't think anyone really cares or reads this anyway. They should be here in a few weeks... I'm looking forward to that.
In other HFH news, there is a new site with some HFH MP3s... Click Here for the HFH ACMEnoise page. On it is the stupid clip of Last Hour and an old demo of Concerta that isn't anywhere else on the web. I encourage to go check that out.
It looks like it's time for my weekly update (which I really haven't been keeping to, but whatever). So, we are now completely out of HFH pins, which is actually a good thing because that means it's time to make more! However, I have decided to delay making more pins.
Don't freak out! Ok, I know no one cares, but I've decided to make stickers instead!
Yes, stickers. Beautiful stickers. They look like this (click). They should arrive in 2-8 weeks, but by that time I bet I'll have made more pins. I'll keep you guys updated.
Hey guys! Sorry for the lack of updates, but I have some news finally. I finally got the live footage audio from the tape. Who wants to download it? no one? oh, well... that figures. Just in case, I put the audio on our purevolume page. So, click here for that.
The Nicolet spoken word went well. I have live audio of "Concerta" that I will put online eventually. Isn't that exciting? We also ran out of pins at it, so I'm going to have to make more (maybe I'll make some stickers too).
Also, there should be a Nicolet Unplugged thing coming soon. I'm not sure when or anything, but it will be cool. I keep everyone (e.g. the two people that will read this) updated.
Just reminding everybody that the spoken word at Nicolet is tomorrow at 5:30 in the D-Wing library. Anybody that happens to read this and does not live in/near Milwaulkee/Glendale, I will be having someone take pictures and video tape it for the website.
