ASK ME, I'M RIGHT: Greg Weeks answers questions about ice cream, Jonny Fay, potential relatives and more
- Posted on September 12, 2007
Hey, it’s me G. Dubs, low end of the prog rock tri the Red Chord. You asked advice/stupid questions about my band and I gave it/answered them. Here’s some advice, go get Prey for Eyes in stores now. Yeah!
Hey! I don't know if you remember, but I talked to you after your last San Antonio, TX show at The White Rabbit. You said that you had an infatuation with ice cream, so I was just wondering… What's your favorite flavor?! =)
-cha cha… BOOM!
This isn't an advice question but I'll answer it because I do have an addiction. Mint chocolate chip is my favorite. Breyers' or Ben and Jerry's "Mint chocolate chunk" which is finally available in stores ranks high on my list. I do like to visit creamery's to get the ice cream right from the source though. I suggest to anyone with an obsession for the "cream" to look up local creamery's, see if they have ice cream and go eat it. Also, I suggest to everybody who comes to my shows, bring me ice cream or better yet, take me out to ice cream.
who was the original singer to acdc
Here's my advice: Google it.
Dear Esteemed Mr. Weeks,
I have this girl that ive been dating for about two weeks. And im looking to romance her something fierce. Would it be a bad idea for our first time if i began shreiking like a banshee in an attempt to make her giggle? Or should i wait until were more comfortable with one another?
Dear Mr. Manly,
I have a sneaking suspicion that if you want to make her giggle all you'll have to do is take off your pants. Good luck buddy,
I've noticed something, a new trend that reeks of utter lameness. How the hell, did band such as these fools like "Job For A Cowboy" or even better my favorite haha "The Black Dahlia Silence aka Suicide Silence" even come around in the scene? Seriously, Prey For Eyes kills anything those two horrible knockjobs could ever imagine putting out haha. Oh and congrats, on Brad being a natural underrated metal drummer. Seriously, no triggers and all around natural drumming. I gotta give props to the SNOB crew, TRC, BTBAM, BDM, and ALOL for not being a bunch of bree bree, tight pants wearing, breakdown after breakdown unoriginal fools. Anyway hope to see you August 7th, with Between the Buried and Me and Cephalic Carnage. Quite possibly three of my favorite bands playing together in one night!! Keep up the great work – Jack(The dude who you see at the Ottobar with the O's hat). :-D
The snob crew appreciates the props Jack. Let's see if we can't change that to a Sox hat, huh Jack?
so I'd like to start by saying I just saw you guys for the fourth time (Portland Maine) and it totally annihilated my brain!!! the red chord is by far my favorite band, you aren't like anyone else, and your not afraid to be yourselves and that's what its really all about, not that macho I play in a metal band so ill kick your ass and rape all your pets bullshit.
but anyway you might actually remember me, my name is Joel and I made the one and only "keep it wolf" hat witch totally dominates and would gladly eat any other hat.
but I guess that my real question is do you think that we all have one calling that some people spend there whole lives looking for and some people find at an early age, like take job for a cowboy as an example, that are a really dominating metal band and there all under the age of 21, and then there is some people who don't realize what they want until they are on their death bed, like my step-father.
I don't know man I'm just looking in all kinds of places for some kind of an answer, because I love metal, and I really feel like im going to be some one important in the metal scene some day, like running the next metal blade records or being in the a band that's a group of innovators like the red chord or something, I don't know, but at the same time I feel the need to do things that keep my family at bay and off my back about what im doing with my life, keep them thinking that I always have a gameplan. often times I refer to metal as breakfast because its the first thing I do in the morning is pop in a cd, and just shit like that. I often wonder if other metal heads do some of the same things I do.
but hey thanks for listening and I cant wait for some input, hopefully you'll send me a real e-mail and not just some generic "yes or no or only on days that end in y" answer.
can't wait until the next time you guys are in new england.
take it easy.
keep it wolf and keep it heavy
Sorry about your brain. Of course I remember you. The hat is amazing and the Red Chord does love gifts. I would say this, if you love this type of music and you want to work in or around it then go for it. You'll probably barely be able to pay your bills or keep a steady relationship but you'll be doing what you love. I'm not sure if people are drawn to certain things because it's their destiny but I do know there are two paths you can take in life. The secure one, get a job you might hate but you'll be making a good living, or the life where you do what you want and deal with the consequences. Good luck Joel and we'll see you soon,
So, concerning a quote by Gunface in the 1st production vid/update for Prey For Eyes, why IS johnny fay such a fuck-up?
The list is too extensive to get into here. I'm just glad that our friends at metal injection will show the video that you speak of and countless others proving that Jonny Fay fucks up all the time. To get down to the real issues that lurk behind Mr. Fay's brain I suggest booking time at his studio. Backyard studios. Good luck with your research.
PS- Jonny Fay is also a terrible person.
are we related? my name is jordan weeks…i can only hope so. but i doubt it. im from nc. hit me back or some shit
I met Jordan here at a recent show we did in NC. He is not related to me. He did act like we were though and asked to borrow "a couple of bucks". He was going on about how he needed the money to get his car out of the tow yard and then some girl he was with stumbled all over the place and I darted out of there before he could get the blood sample he wanted to prove that we were related and to try and prove that I fathered six of that girls eleven children. The truth is I didn't want to give him money and I only fathered three of them,
This is more of an issue of morality than anything else.
Let me explain the situation. I just shaved off my beard, literally, I still have shaving cream on my left ear. Now I feel naked, cold and vulnerable. I can always grow a new one, but I want it now. So… Would it be wrong to trade a homeless guy a bottle of wine for his beard?
Amazing! Do it now and use wood glue to paste in on. Make it look as crappy as it can be and then send me a picture so I can laugh at your misfortune, the homeless guys misfortune and the bottle of wine's misfortune.
