HEY! Just so you know, this site looks rad in full screen mode. Press F11 now, in most browsers!
Strike Anywhere is a great band, so I made this site. Eventually, it became my blog too. Actually, it started out as my blog.

Floyd's random thoughts
Happy New Year and stuff I guess
here it is another year and this place somehow still exists. I'm going to new york city this weekend and it's going to be really great. in website news well believe it or
not, I finally got the FrontPage server extensions working, wow that only took five years. I really don't need them but I needed them to do something you will never know
about the other day so I fixed them, it took about two hours once I actually sat down and did it. up until now I have made everything standards-complainant and universally-
functional anyway but it might come in handy for something again.
Yesterday afternoon I noticed the forum was broken.
Table ‘.\co1\co1_sessions’ is marked as crashed and should be repaired
was the error. I thought about not fixing and just replacing the forum with a message about something happening and me not fixing it because nobody uses it anyway but it
was pretty easy to fix so it's fixed!
Yep, it was on this day in 2009 that I first brought this website on-line. a bunch changed and then it died and now it's basically just here for me to have cheap,
fully-controllable online storage. Who knows, maybe one day after the facebooks and tumblrs gone away and this social networking fad is dead this website will make the
comeback it always deserved.
A bunch of random stuff to keep this place on life support
So this website's former competitor turned ally, punkcdsampler has been taken off-line. this website will be here forever because it costs next to nothing to keep online.
In other news I GOT A NEW COMMODORE 64 AND IT'S REALLY GREAT. ALSO, IT'S JUST 43 DAYS UNTIL THE FEST!!! What else happened lately, well shows in Atlanta have not been
happening as much lately and I don't know why I guess its because all my friends moved away. I really want to start having radio shows again too I know I said that in
may and have not had one since then but maybe it will happen again who knows. I made a kind of great MS-DOS clone for the Commodore 64 I may post it on here soon who
knows. Anyway, I cant think of anything else to post here so I guess that is all.
Mixtapes is the only band that is close to being as good as Strike Anywhere (The Wild is another) and Mixtapes has a new music video, it's on
MTVu of all places which is
weird, and honestly this video isn't half as good as some of their others (The New Ride The Lightning, Anyways, and Taking a year off come to mind) but it's still pretty
great, also it is one of my favorite songs so that is good too.
Watch it now.
I fixed a problem with the forum that has existed since 2011
This sounds kind of stupid but I finally got around to fixing all the topics in General Discussion
so that they list their original creation date and person instead of me. Sure, it has been wrong ever since August 14, 2011 when I upgraded the forum and corrupted the
database but better late than never right!. Honestly, I just got really nostalgic for the old days and wanted to go read some of the old topics and had to fix them
first. If anyone wants to post in the again and bring them back to life, that would be great!
Last night I had the first radio show since December, I think, and people came and music was heard and it was really great. If that many people would come to the next one
I would start having them on a regular basis again. the best part was that it was people who have never even been to one before, but that is not to say that my internet
friends shouldn't come, you should too. everyone should come because that is when the shows are the most fun, when lots of people come and there is lots of great
talk about lots of stuff and the music is just shared background noise. Also, if this happens again soon, YOU NEED TO REQUEST MUSIC, I HAVE NEVER BEEN GOOD AT MAKING
PLAYLISTS but I really want to start having these again, back in 2009-2011 when they were in their height and before I started going to shows these were the funnest thing
and I met some of my best internet friends all because of a dumb chatroom with a music player attached.
!!!Two East Coast US Strike Anywhere shows this summer!!!
6/15- NYC, NY at: Bowery Ballroom w/ Subhumans !
6/16- Washington, DC at: Black Cat Backstage
We are thrilled to announce that we will be playing with the Subhumans in NYC... lineup and ticket info can be found in the link below.
Also... because we gotta drive past DC to get back to Richmond... we figured... why not stop and play a show and give DC a little love. So... we'll be headlining the
Black Cat Backstage... lineup to be announced soon!
Maybe I can make it to DC, it's only like another hundred miles past Richmond!
Next week we will be announcing 2 US East Coast shows that are happening in June!!! One headlining show... and one show opening for a band that has been influential and
inspirational to us for decades! Any guesses???
Not Rancid. Not Black Flag. One city was guess correctly
That is also good, two terrible bands that are definitely not playing, the cities that people guessed were New York City, Norfolk (probably west Virginia) and Richmond
Virginia. I will go if it is RVA, who knows maybe it will be somewhere even closer. I am fucking stoked about this and I hope I won't be disappointed.
I won't say who it is... but another hint... this band is not from the US.
so, the other band is some band that I don't care about. Well, at least Strike Anywhere is on the east coat
Also, I am just going to say this, but those facebook updates read like they were written by someone who does not speak english as their native language, but who knows it
just reads kind of awkwardly.
So yeah, tumblr killed my website. Tumblr Integration makes it look active but it's still pretty dead. Last month one person posted in the forum asking about Program
Manager and that seems to be the main draw of my website now, it's the only place on the internet with those instructions. That is fine and great, but that isn't really
what I wanted this website to be about. In other news, I AM GOING TO STAY SWEET FEST, THE UPDATED STAY SWEET FEST COUNTDOWN CLOCK IS
HERE. That is all.
It took working on it all day, but I think I finally have this tumblr thing integrated with my website so that the first post from here will show up there. Actually, that
was the easy part the hard part was getting the LCARS surround for it to work correctly, and then I accidentally deleted half of the style.css file and could not get it
back and had no backup so I just had to rebuild it all from memory and an outdated version and it is still not all back, but it is functional. I must admit, though, it
looks pretty great.
I joined tumblr, this place died. I am trying to figure out how to make my most recent tumblr post show up here so this place won't look quite so dead. I will get
get back to you on that. I am not even going to bother posting this on the forum.
