It's as simple as this: I like to type out my thoughts regarding music and my other escapist interests. I'm not trying to be a "punk rock record reviewer" or a "rock critic" or any of that bullshit. It's just what I like to do, that's all. I'm not an expert...just a fan. Say it with me: a F-A-N. And I'm having F-U-N being a F-A-N. Can you dig it? I knew that you could. We at The Evil Eye like to know what you think, so LEAVE COMMENTS, fuckheads!!
WHEN DOWNLOADING MUSIC...
Some of these recordings are readily available, and some aren’t. It’s not about “stealing music” or taking anything away from the artists themselves. If you like the bands and their records are still in print, you should make the effort to be supportive and buy them. If you have a legitimate claim to any music posted here and want it removed, just write me and it’s no problem. You may not agree with things that some of these bands say, but their views are their own and don’t necessarily reflect mine. Although comments and suggestions are welcomed, I am not interested in debating over political views or ideologies expressed by bands that I have nothing to do with. Please let me know of any dead links and it will be taken care of ASAP. Thanks, and enjoy the tunes!

MEMBER OF THE AMERICAN TRASH CULTURE ADVOCACY MOVEMENT
Corporate America isn’t Real America. Real America is loud rock ‘n’ roll, drive-in movies, comic books, Mad Magazine, pro wrestling, Garbage Pail Kids, flea markets, greasy spoon diners, motorcycles, amusement parks, carnivals, and whatever else I eventually remember to include. Really, just the little things that are slowly but surely being pushed aside or absorbed by sterile mindsets. American Trash Culture advocacy isn’t about waving flags or praising god. Nor is it about pretending to be a redneck, poking fun at the working class, or “baseball, Mom, and apple pie.” American Trash Culture is celebrated with no hipster-esque irony, nor do we claim to be its definitive voice. Most of all, we know that this probably sounds a bit silly to you. We don’t care.
