Jason, drummer from DownlowNYHC speaks

jason posted this last week and I just saw it now.

"Hanging with the punks in the gutters I have found..most of them are gifted and talented as well. So which is it? Am i talented or gifted. and actually i'm not to fond of the gutter. Playing in Down Low is the closest thing to it though. so it's all good.
Comment on my video!!!!! C'mon... bring it! Hate comments, love comments....what the hell language is that guy singing in comments... whatever! just leave me some damn comments on the video I made dammit!!! Just copy and paste this link into your browser http://www.disassociate.com/downlow_the_pressure.html The video is for our new song "The Pressure" to be released this year on Down Low NYHC's next CD, recorded/mixed by Nick Noize of Locked in a Vacancy. As this is the first thing I've ever edited, i'd like to hear some feedback from any and all of you who care to check it out. Of course if you like Down Low already (fat chance), and/or are a fan of NYHC music you might be biased. Hell, you might even be in the video. Most of it was taped live from 1995 through 2004at CBGB and Coney Island High in NYC and the SideBar in Baltimore, MD. The only footage of me playing drums is the black and white footage at the Sidebar from August 2004. This footage is also the only video in which the band is actually playing the song "The Pressure". The "Down Low" in blue camcorder type across the screen at the end is courtesy of Uptown Al who taped that Down Low show at CBGB's. I just put a freeze frame on it and thought it was a cool way to end the video. All the video footage was transferred from VHS to 3/4" and then digitized into an AVID system. It was edited during my last week out in Venice/Hollywood California at my cousin's company, Brass Knuckles Editorial in late December 2004.
I hope you enjoy the video -Tell me what you think -get back to me with comments, messages, hatemail etc. "

Metalmetalmetalmetal and a couple that aint.

We’ve got a serious back-log of treats here so read any that take your fancy and ignore any that don’t. I seriously recommend the interview with Bring Me The Horizon – you’d do ‘em wouldn’t you?

I also wish to take this opportunity to apologize for the Barcode and Bleed The Sky images being fantastically low-res – it’s not my fault it’s Nuclear Blast’s for being bums and not updating their media area.
