Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Social Entropy++: AWESOME POST in "ATTENTION SE++", by sedo
Pitchfork does an annual concert in Chicago, its actually pretty good, despite the audience and the people running it.
This summer I went "undercover," with a thin black scarf, a clove cigarette, an empty can of PBR that I pretended to drink from, and the capstone: a fake band t-shirt that I made with a set of magic markers. They were called "The Giggling Grench" and their logo was a stylized green-and-pink cartoon of a man vomiting musical notes, set slightly off center.
In the middle of the Public Enemy set, this one hipster who was standing next to me starts hitting on some chick. As part of their mating ritual, he starts to spew a monumental list of bands hes "really into right now." Halfway through his speech he slips in "The Giggling Grench," and points to my t-shirt as proof.
