MELVINS REVIEW CONTEST RESULTS.
I didn't win the "Sugar Daddy-Live" review contest. Top honors went to some asshole who submitted seven reviews, not a single one of which mentioned the music contained on the album at all. It was just a bunch of Melvins-ass kissing over and over, many instances of which went over the Melvins-imposed 100 word limit. What a bunch of crap. Seriously. Reading through all of the submissions, there were only a handful of people who actually addressed the album as that-the rest of it was a bunch of poorly written "please give me a t-shirt" bullshit alongside about a hundred proclamations of "Melvins rule" or "best band ever" ballyhooing. It wasn't that i wanted the autographed t-shirt-i've seen the Melvins plenty of times and have plenty of signed stuff-i just wanted this minor vindication from people whom i respect. I don't know what to think anymore. a review should be a review. There's room to move within that framework but you should at least convey some sort of opnion about what's on the record you're supposedly informing others about. I always thought the Melvins were smarter than this. I would invite anyone to read the entries and tell me any of them were up to any sort of journalistic standard. utter and total bullshit. What a load of fucking cumrags. Jesus fucking christ. I'm sickened.
