one of the issues was they timing that you speak of. MTV in the 90s was all "new country" commercial pop and rock and not a lot of service was paid to the niche groups.

other than that, there is no real concept of national radio in the US. Unlike all the BBC1/essential mix types, that did not exist in the US during the 80s and 90s and mostly doesn't now outside of internet radio, which is  so fragmented.

radio is local market only and if you want to know how it really works, read "Hit Men: Power Brokers & Fast Money Inside the Music Business". it is actually a great read but shows how corrupt us radio was.

that which we listen to did not have the money to compete with the major labels that pushed product at the time in the local markets.

But Aural does have a point in that New York, Detroit, Chicago, Miami, Boston, LA and San Francisco all had great scenes, but they centered around the cities and it was not a national thing.

Dusted has hardly posted since 2010, he was the power on the GU board but probably not on here

The powerbase for the "dusted" handle is board mentions proportionate to post output.  Our predictive modelling engine set hype around a possible return for this handle to "giddy" level.  Those are genuine B Grade celebrity numbers. I've probably said too much but the "fadas" handle benefitted from much of the same post its departure.  Returners and new handles generally do well for a spell.

tbh there were only a dozen or so active posters on the gu. the other 14000 were mark's various aliases.

Twice

First was a bit of a joke as a friend and I were arrested in uni. we were walking across campus on our way home from a party and cut through the sports facility. Someone saw us with a trophy so the cops were called. The rent a cop campus security handcuffed us, threw the trophy in the trunk and handed us  and the "evidence" over to city police where we underwent the usual processing.

the cop assigned to us gave me the whole "theft is serious" spiel. i told him that i would waive my right to counsel if he would look at the trophy. He stepped out and came back 5 minutes later with tears in his eyes. The trophy that we had "stolen" was the "Maritime Chinchilla Show - Master Breeder's Award 1965". We picked it up from a junk shop a couple of years before for $5 and it was our keeper for winner of most money at our weekly card night.

Second was an immigration violation after we were kicked off a flight in Mali. Not fun.

i have a friend who refuses to buy a wedding present until the first anniversary. i will ask him for the ruling on the rehearsal dinner

i also think 'Spiro Agnew' is greatly under used.

Funnily enough whilst driving round the Peloponnese in Greece we drove through a village in the middle of nowhere and there's this giant metal object like globe thingy completely out of character, so we were like what the fucking hell is that? Got out of the car walked over and read the plaque ' Birth place of Spiro Agnew' . Pre internet so hadn't got a Scooby who this cunt was until we got home and asked. Fascinating.

someone was deep into the ouzo. he was born in baltimore.

Really? That is fucked up. He doesn't seem the type. Stunned by the news, a fine actor, always good value for money. Loved him in Synecdoche, New York and the other films mentioned here. RIP.

there was some mention, a while back, about being in rehab for prescription meds

anyhoo. great actor, enjoyed his work.

people who don't say "thank you" when you hold the door open for them.

not a big fan of capital punishment except in this case.
