Soy gorda.

Me imagino lo que debe pensar la gente a penas me ve.

y si eso me pone mal, obviamente me maquino

y a veces digo solo me deben mirar a los ojos por que le da asco mirarme por completo.

Pienso y digo que habre hecho mal para caminar por la calle y que me griten cosas por mi cuerpo.

SI estoy re dable, si mi culo es muy grande, si se pueden perder en mis tetas,

o en mi rollos, si soy caderona, si soy gorda cual hay?

Normalmente me cuesta quererme, como nos pasa a todos normalmente soy indiferente, otros días me odio por no tener la fuerza de odiar la comida y no querer saber mas nada y otros días digo guau que fuerte que soy por animarme a salir así, que fuerte que me siento por ser como soy sin importar lo que me digan lo temas, claramente esto pasa muy poco, pero cuando lo hago me encuentro feliz.

Me molesta no poder comprarme la ropa que me gusta por que ‘no es un talle para mi’, me molesta que me digan ‘ ay engordaste un poco y no te lo digo mal, te lo digo por que te quiero’, ‘ay tenes que cuidarte, hacer dieta, ejercicio, quererte’, ‘ay sos tan tierna y tenes una cara tan linda, pero si fueras flaca serias hermosa’, ‘ si no tuvieras tanto kilos tal vez te querian’ ,  a veces estos comentarios de mierda me consumen, me atrapan y caigo en su juego, y me atormentan dia a dia, me lastimo a mi misma, y digo si yo hay dias que me quiero a si con mi grasa, con mi ‘sobre peso’, con mi talle L o XL, por que ustedes no lo pueden hacer?

I decided it’s time to get back to the reason I made this blog. To write about each and every release I’ve ever put out in chronological order. I’ve already wrote about Free Emerald State’s Volume 1 (my first cd), Dables’ Slacker Pop, 14 Songs, Pretty Ugly, Closet Monster’s Smoke Pot Kill Your Family (another old band of mine), and DAN’s first album Magic Mountain.  If you want to read about any of those, just put dables in the search box on my page because they are all rather old blog entries.

ANYWHO, here is the second release from my old band DAN, titled “Grandparents Forever”. It came out in January of 2010 on my self-run label Slacker Pop Records.

Here are the album credits:
David Walker - guitar, etc.
Clayton Marks - bass, etc.
Sid Shurer - vocals, etc.

Our buddies who helped:
Tucker-background vocals on “Lazy and Proud” & “Some More Stupid Shit”
Shelby-background vocals on “I Threw Up Off The Porch” & farts on “Disco Amoeba”
Cody-voicemail on “Cody’s Moving Back to Town”
Brittany-background vocals on “Super Anal Party”

Basically this was just a continuation of our first album Magic Mountain, although we moved away from a punk sound, going more for a psychedelic sound and trying harder to write funnier songs. The whole idea was to write short songs, usually only with one or two riffs, that just get straight to the point and hopefully would both rock and be funny. We were basically just trying to entertain ourselves. Not really a whole lot else to say about this album.

“Livin’ in The Basement” is probably my favorite DAN song, and it’s about how Sid and Clayton lived in Sid’s parent’s house basement, where we recorded about 95% of this album (the rest was recorded in my bedroom at my house). 

“Bubblegum and Kicking Ass” is another one of my favorites and is basically just a They Live reference.

“Cody’s Moving Back to Town” features a voicemail my friend Cody Blackwell left me informing me that he was moving back to Fountain Inn after living in Savannah, GA for the past 2 and half years. I recorded the entire song by myself. I was stoked that he was moving back and shortly after he came back, we formed the current lineup of Dables.

“John Lennon’s Uncircumcised Penis” was inspired by the cover of John Lennon’s Two Virgins album.  It is also the most played & downloaded song on bandcamp and it brings my site a lot of traffic. People looking for pictures of John Lennon’s dick I guess. Not surprisingly the second most played/downloaded song is “Super Anal Party”. Go figure.

Immediately after finishing this one, we started working on another album that was going to be called Honey Berry Surprise (named after a blunt wrap) but it never got finished. We played two shows as DAN. One house show that went ok, and one show at The Hangar in Greenville that was awful.  My guitar’s input broke on the first song and I had to borrow someone else’s and the sound was horrible and there were maybe 10 people there. That’s about all there is to say about Grandparents Forever. I hope you listen to it and laugh as much as we did while recording it.

SHOW PREVIEW: Benny Blackwell Benefit at Radio Room/Chi Cheng Benefit at Ground Zero

With the holidays just around the corner, ’tis the season to give. And if that’s one things bands from the Upstate have showed in the past few years it’s their compassion for different causes and their ability to rally others for it as well. With that being said, tonight is no different both in Greenville and in Spartanburg.

ALBUM REVIEW: Dables – Dables

It’s been a long-time coming, but the full-band debut of Dables is finally here. For those unfamiliar with Dables, it was originally the solo project of Fountain Inn musician and Daniel Johnston worshipper, David Walker. Over the past several years he had been quite prolific as a solo artist, but eventually his desire to make a louder noise led him to forming a full band incarnation with Cody Blackwell and Jake Garrett both trading off bass and drum duties.

John The Revelator - Stagnant Water(2011)





Available on the internet for the first time, and for free download for a limited time only, local legend John The Revelator aka Jake Garrett, the drummer for Dables, brings you his latest solo album and I think it rules. He recorded it on my Tascam Portastudio in the course of two weeks when I let him borrow it. LISTEN OR DIE!!

Happy New Year! Look forward to these in 2013...

Well it’s a neaw year so that means New shows, new music, and good times. First keep your eyes and ears open for a New album which should be out in Feb. or March. It is a split album done with our friends Dables. Also we don’t have too many shows booked yet, but we’ve been working on some new tracks and hope to go to the Jam Room Studio to record our 2nd album. THis will likely happen in the Summer and MAY, be released late this year. Hope everyone enjoyed 2012, and get ready because we’re going to help make 2013 one hell of a year. -MJM

INTRODUCING: Un_Scene (Music of a Different Flavor) First Show

Many of our readers are probably familiar with Greenville gangsters and pranksters, Din of Thieves. But what they may be unfamiliar with is lead singer Caleb Riley’s ambitions outside of the band. In addition to many solo and collaborative electronic projects, Riley has also been planning his own venture into the arts, and hosting events under the name “Un_Scene”. Their first gathering is this Friday February 3rd at The Artistry in the West End of Greenville. Musical acts will include David Walker of Dables, and Leigh Steinhouse of Romancing The Devil. We caught up with Caleb Riley to discuss the details of the event, and most importantly if there was going to be alcohol provided!

Sobre el arte de escribir —Josep Pla

Este artículo va a ser dedicado a la utilidad, quiero decir a la utilidad de los demás. Si a mí, a los veinte años, me hubiera sido dable leer un artículo tan bien intencionado y tan didáctico como el que voy a escribir, hubiera dado las gracias más efusivas al género humano. Mi agradecimiento hubiera sido considerable. Se trata de contestar a esta pregunta: ¿Cómo hay que escribir? Cuando decimos que un autor es un buen autor, ¿qué queremos decir, siempre en el caso de que lo hayamos leído? Cuando decimos que un autor tiene estilo, ¿qué hemos de entender por ello? A todos nos conviene tener un buen estilo. ¿Qué ha de hacerse para tener un buen estilo? Me lo han preguntado, recientemente, varias personas…

La respuesta ha de ser forzosamente subjetiva. He conocido algunas personas —pocas— a quienes gusta el estilo engolado, farragoso, complicado, oscuro. Estas personas tienen una verdadera alegría cuando al leer un autor se encuentran con una palabreja rara y han de lanzarse sobre el diccionario con frenesí. Se divierten coleccionando palabrejas. A otros les gusta el estilo compuesto como un alchol del mismo nombre, y su máxima ilusión ante una frase interminable consiste en ponerse en actitud de estudioso y buscar dónde está el gato encerrado. Generalmente no hay gato encerrado, ni gato alguno. Yo vi nacer uno de los últimos estilos literarios que se han ensayado en España, estilo frente al cual se está ya francamente reaccionando. Se está volviendo a la sencillez. Este estilo puso bajo la advocación de José Antonio Primo de Rivera, a pesar de que José Antonio fue en vida uno de los hombres de su tiempo que escribieron con más claridad, con más simplicidad, con más naturalidad, como corresponde a una persona de acusa claridad mental. El subproducto de este estilo fue el estilo de bravata que todavía colea en algunos periódicos y en algunas revistas elegantes. Este estilo de bravata es muy fácil de confeccionar y constituye un espectáculo enternecedor. Siempre es agradable ver a un señor convencido de que tiene razón hasta el punto de considerarse absuelto de dar las razones para ello.

Se puede, pues, escribir de una manera o de otra, y puede a uno gustarle uno u otro estilo. Sin embargo, hay estilos que duran más que otros: hay un número, ciertamente escaso, de autores que sobreviven a su estricta vida mortal. En general, suelen durar los escritores que escriben sencilla y llanamente. Los más grandes estilistas del castellano, por ejemplo, Fray José de Sigüenza, el P. Rivadereyra, Fray Luis de Granada, Cervantes, en el prólogo de «Persiles», escribe con una impresionante claridad, con una sencillez absolutamente misteriosa, de tan clara. En todas las lenguas, los grandes clásicos escriben igual. Sigüenza describe la construcción de El Escorial como un campesino que escribe a su familia. Un campesino —los hay— dotados de una fuerza de síntesis mental asombrosa, de una claridad solar.

La primera cosa que hay que hacer para escribir bien es obedecer el genio de la lengua. Y el genio de estas lenguas neolatinas consiste poner primero el artículo, luego el substantivo, luego el verbo y finalmente el predicado. Cuando se quiere predicar de una puerta su color verde, hay que decir, si es posible: «la puerta es verde». Nada más. Decir, por ejemplo: «verde es la puerta» puede hacer vibrar las entendederas de un grupo de snobs. Decir «es verde la puerta» es querer hacer el cuco y el cazurro, lo que puede, naturalmente, hacer aumentar el precio del artículo. Pero lo mejor —y me dirijo ahora a los chicos del bachillerato—, lo mejor es siempre decir, cuando realmente de lo que se trata es de predicar que una puerta es de color verde: «la puerta es verde». Esto no tiene nada que ver con las modas, ni con las vibraciones, ni con los estados de ánimo fugaces. Esto durará siempre.

Luego, para escribir bien, hay que poner una cosa detrás de cada palabra. Si uno detrás de una palabra pone un simple ruido meramente gutural, o una vaga impresión subjetiva, a un sentido de triple fondo, o el significado que para un grupo de amigos puede tener dicha palabra, cae en el puro galimatías. En esto, como en casi todo, la regla es la formulada implícitamente por la voluntad general. Yo comprendo muy bien que la aristocracia deseara tener una idea cerrada, exclusiva, hermética, por ejemplo, de una mecedora. Sin embargo, es muy triste decirlo, la idea universal de lo que es una mecedora viene dada por la mayoría. Es un acuerdo implícito de la gente, que no puede variar. Cuando, siendo joven, leí esta idea en la «Historia de la Literatura Italiana» de Francisco de Sanctis, comprendí el oficio de escribir con bastante claridad. De Sanctis, exaltador del Infierno y del Purgatorio de Dante, dice, en definitiva: «En el Infierno, en el Purgatorio, veo a hombres con bigote o con barba o rasurados. En el Paraíso no veo más que palabras». El ejemplo rebasa nuestra pobre sensibilidad. Sin embargo, yo creo que la regla es válida. Una palabra es el signo de una cosa entendida según el significado de la inmensa mayoría. Salir de esta regla es fatal.

Cuando Tolstoy escribió «Guerra y Paz» le decía un crítico en una carta: «Se pierde usted en el análisis. A veces está usted dispuesto a decir: “En tal persona la pantorrilla indicaba un gran deseo de viajar por las Indias…"» La afición al análisis, en literatura, hay, a mi entender, que refrenarla. Y hay que refrenarla porque seguramente es más fácil, con una pluma en la mano, sintetizar que analizar. Hemos tenido un autor, don Joaquín Ruyra, cuya memoria venero, que fue un analista formidable. Sin embargo, hay una posición superior, que consistiría en resumir cada cuatro líneas de Ruyra en un adjetivo comprensivo y matizado. Esto es difícil. Desde luego. La persona que con una pluma en la mano no parta de la idea de que se puede perfectamente morir sin haber llegado a los rudimentos del oficio, a pesar de treinta o cuarenta años de vida madura y consciente, es un insensato. No. Esto no es una broma. Se escribe no con tinta, sino con sangre.

Luego, para escribir, hay que ser ligeramente inteligente. Y ser inteligente en la vida quiere decir no precisamente hacer un descubrimiento cada dos o tres años, sino conocer la navegación, la malicia y los trucos del lenguaje. Esto se tiene o no se tiene. Yo no puedo decir nada, porque no los tengo. Desde luego, esta forma de la inteligencia no tiene nada que ver ni con pagar la contribución ni con no pagarla, ni con pagar o no pagar el piso, ni con ser feo o guapo. Esto es cosa de la naturaleza, del animal, para decirlo claro.

Y luego, el ritmo de la frase ha de ser rápido. Yo practiqué esta regla siempre, porque no puedo resistir la difusión y el autor pesado. Azorín, en su reciente libro sobre «Madrid», dice que, a su entender, el ritmo del estilo ha de ser rápido. Esta afirmación de Azorín han de apropiársela no ya los muchachos del bachillerato, sino los compañeros que por el hecho de tener treinta años o menos están rozando el filo la pedantería, como diría mi viejo amigo, creador del estilo nuevo, don Pedro Mourlane.

Time to get back to what I created this tumblr for, which was blogging liner notes for the CDs I have released as Dables in order. This is Pretty Ugly, my 4th album and definitely the first Dables album most people heard because shortly after it came out is when I started performing regularly. During this era, 2009-2010, I was still performing solo, but instead of just playing improv noise or electronic music, I started playing songs more songs from my albums using a set up similar to Ween or Big Black. I played electric guitar and sang while my Tascam Portastudio was plugged straight into the PA, playing the pre-recorded bass and drum machine parts. I played my first “electric” show this way in December 2009 in Fountain Inn, SC at a house party with Coma Cinema and it went over extremely well. I played mostly songs from the “14 Songs” album, and a few from this disc.

Released on February 3 2010, this album was conceived as a concept album to mix pretty pop songs with ugly noise songs. The idea was to go back and forth, first track being a pretty pop song, the next being an experimental or weird/off-putting/ugly noise song. The cover illustrates this concept with combining the beauty of a sunflower, placed in an ugly toilet. That is also actually my real toilet, from my parent’s house, with plastic flowers inside of it. I took the picture and sent it to my friend Victoria Ferrer, who runs The Black Lodge, a subculture get together at various local clubs. She edited it for me, writing the text on it and coloring the background around the toilet black, and turning the flowers red instead of yellow, and I think she did an absolutely fabulous job and I love her for it. My friend/occasional-partner-in-crime with Slacker Pop Records Micheal Keller, of the band Satan in Bondage, helped me put together the inner artwork including the lyrics, and he paid to help me print and make over 50 physical copies, and he helped distribute it so I also owe a huge thanks to him.

Listening back to this album reminds me of what was going on in my life at the time. I was working at a Kangaroo Express gas station, and came in one day to find out my store manager and good friend Russell Folk had committed suicide the night before. I was extremely shocked and upset by this and I ended up walking out on my shift, and quitting the job on the spot. It was my first day back from a two week vacation and I couldn’t handle the responsibility of having to be the one to tell customers who came into the store who were asking me, “Where’s Russell?" all day so after about an hour of my shift, I just up and left. I went home and wrote "Song For Russell”, which didn’t make it onto this disc but ended up on a future one called “Stuff Volume 2”. I spent the next two weeks frantically recording songs to help escape from the depression caused by the death of such a close friend. I had known Russell for over 2 years, and saw him about 5 times a week and we had become very close. This disc is most definitely dedicated to his memory, and I recorded it as therapy to help cope with my first experience of death. Besides my great-grandmother, who I wasn’t very close to, Russell was the first person I knew well to die. I still miss him very much, and this disc will always remind me of him. Anyways, on to the songs themselves.


‘Boredumb’ is one of the most popular Dables songs. It has been performed at every single show since that first electric show December 2009. Funny that this one is such a fan favorite because it took me less than hour to write and record it to completion. However this song is sort of a loose rip-off musically of Flies on My Dick by Ween. It has minimal guitar, slow, plodding drum machine, monotone vocals, and quirky lead guitar breakdown just like that song does. Although I like to think I did my own thing with that formula and I wouldn’t say this song an out-right rip-off, just inspired by the formula of Ween.

'Sober and Bored’ was the first track recorded for this album and the title and music itself was inspired by The Boredoms.

'Hang Around’ came out extra poppy because The Beatles remasters had just came out and I was listening to them non-stop and wanted to do a song with “doo-wahs” vocals on it. Besides a short, sloppy, semi-solo on the song “Who Are You?” from Slacker Pop, this track was the first “real” guitar solo I ever put on a song and I’m still pretty proud of it and I think I nailed it on the second take. Prior to this, I was pretty opposed to doing guitar solos.  Never performed an electric version of this song live before, but I’ve played it at acoustic shows several times.

'Live Forever’ was my attempt to emulate The Melvins, although it sounds little like them. The odd lyric “I want to lick your knees” was inspired by a porno I saw where a girl was blowing a guy and said “I wanna lick your knees” and proceeded to lick his kneecaps for a few minutes. I thought that was odd and hilarious so I put it in this song. The lyric “I want to see the end cause you know it will start again” means that if a person were to live forever, they would witness the collapse of civilizations and empires, only to see them get rebuilt and start again.

Along with a fellow local band Hollow Body, 'An Exercise in Isolation’ as well as portions of 'Boredumb’ was later put on the soundtrack to local independent film, “WTF?”, a horror/comedy film made by Firefly Ink Productions about a group of people on a road trip who’s car breaks down and the person who picks them up off the side of the road who proceeds to slaughter them. Clips of the movie are available on youtube.

'This is Nothing’ was a jab at the poor work ethics of my fellow bandmates in my side-project DAN, about how they wanted to play shows really badly, but weren’t dedicated enough to practice regularly. Needless to say, DAN broke up about 6 months after Pretty Ugly came out after only playing 3 shows together, all but 1 were a disaster. Although we eventually made up and became friends again, after another year or so we fell back into the same drama and currently haven’t spoken to each other in a while, but if either of them happen to read this, I have no hard feelings toward Sid and Clayton and I think the music we made together in DAN was some of the most creative and interesting songs I’ve ever been a part of, and I’m proud of the recordings we made together and I wish them luck with their recent project, Zelda Zonk. 

'Loop 3’ is the third installment of tracks I create using my Boss Loop Station. The first one was on '14 Songs’, and the second was on 'Stuff Volume 1’. This is probably my least favorite and is definitely the laziest one and in hindsight should’ve been left off this album entirely. Loop 4 appears on the most recent self-titled album.

“She Don’t Dig Me” was the last song recorded for this album. This song was lyrics written probably 2 years prior that I never put music to. I lifted the vocal melody of this song from Get Me by Dinosaur Jr, although in the end it turned out  Listening back to it, the audio quality on this track is embarrassing, and I remember being very frustrated with mixing it, and eventually giving up and just releasing it as-is, with several glaring technical mistakes, that hopefully nobody can notice but me. 

'108’ was an older recording, recorded shortly after finished 14 Songs, but was saved for this release. At 9 minutes and 32 seconds it is the longest track I have ever recorded.
