For the want of a more catchy subject title:
I'll be at Dour. Ah well.
something called a 'Converse Card'?!?!
If you don't wear converse, you can't go? This is the most indie-centric gig ever!
feel so, so alone in this world :(
and im not even from london.
it's a lonely plight i have to bear :(
can we form a club?
Finally, a kindred spirit.
I actually refused to talk to Mrs B for a week when she bought some Converse recently. Dedication to a bizarre cause.
we can sit around wearing unfashionable footwear and making bad puns and having stilted conversations.
It'll be like the BAD CONVERSE CLUB.
I can bake cakes, and have never placed a Converse upon my foot.
we're just too cool for converse.
that's what it is. yes it is.
and I think they are silly. Whats the point of shoes that don't keep the rain out? On the trek down from the Barfly to Camden tube on a dark November night you don't want a pair of shoes that leaks when you tred in a puddle do you?
INDIEKIDS wear them.
ALL the time.
i think i've lost mine. erm...
anyway i'm sure i saw an ad for this gig on myspac earlier today with a link to ticketweb.
but wasn't the original thing about them being cool because they were an "alternative" to trainers and made ethically[*] etc etc?
*this part may be an invention in my head.
i dunno. i was wearing them as a nipper before i knew anything about sweatshops.
but it was too busy, so went to see that fella out of test icicles new band play... Ratatagg i think.
well, i know for a fact that they're now owned by nike, which at least pisses all over the "alternative" thing ;-)
yes, the nike buyout happened 3 years ago. keep up. ;)
My feet are too wide so after a couple of months there's a big hole in both shoes where my big toe sticks out.
Sadly, the chances of Duffs sponsoring any decent (ie. non-"gnarly" "rad" and "bodacious" generic skate-punk/emo) gigs in the near future are pretty much bollocky nil.
