Ultragrrrl's apartment, 4th of July 2007 (CRED)
Ultragrrl and friends

......Stolen Transmission started IN MY BEDROOM as an indie label putting out hand made cds of bands that me and Rob believed in. We werent funded back then, and we were really happy. We did everything because of how much we loved music. Now that I've had my experience with Island/Def Jam, I know how to actually run a label, and I helped set up 9 amazing releases from Permanent ME, the Oohlas, Monty Are I, Bright Light Fever, the Horrors, Schoolyard Heroes, PlayRadioPlay!, Innerpartysystem, and the Photo Atlas. I'm so fucking proud that my label went from me and a bunch of interns sitting in my bedroom smoking and watching degrassi and eating guac i had just made to me sitting in meetings once a week with JayZ and now it'll just go back to being run from my apartment again. We plan on continuing with Stolen Transmission and are really excited to be returning to our indie roots.

I'm also glad to say that the Stolen Transmission party is coincedently starting in a new venue tonight! That means no more Angels & Kings, and now we're going to the Hanger Bar (3rd street btw B and C), which is also more aligned with the vibe the party hand when the label was run out of my bedroom. This is all very very exciting for me........ [Ultragrrl on Absolute Punk]

my first thought is 'what a dumb cunt.' but then i thought to myself and figured that this chubby chick and other assorted kids with no business sense are now unemployed and that sucks no matter how much crap music they've been responsible for.

good luck guys...i sorta wish you well (sorta).

She may be chubby, but did you see those fun bags on display in the Voice last year? Wowza.

how is that chubby?

Here's a clue about why this girl is so hated.

Number of times "ultragrrrl" uses "I" "me" or "we" in an excerpted two paragraph post: 27

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2007 2:35 PM

that's "I" "me/my" "we/our"

Love it when hipster and hipsterettes feel the need to remind us why they're so quirky, i.e. "smoking and watching degrassi and eating guac i had just made."

BV, I'm disappointed you posted this before, or instead of, posting about the opening show of the Spice Girls' reunion tour.

"my first thought is 'what a dumb cunt."

Trust your first instincts. You were right!

She's an Ultra-idiot.

As I said -- fun bags.

you guys sound like the lame, sexist douche bags who comment on stereogum.

go back there.

this is one of those rare instances in which i support major corporations telling indie businesses to fuck off. not that she qualifies as an indie business what with daddy's trust fund anyway.

i dont really dig any of the bands on her label but giving her shit is usually just jelousy from people who hate that her blog and opinions get attention while their own blogspot's get shit. she has a pretty impressive resume and has done a lot more than most people here.

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2007 8:53 PM

ouch. those may be some fun fun bags but their glorious display comes at the expense of her looking like Kelly Osbourne. Hmmm...maybe ST can sign Kelly O. she's due for an emo album.

Blah blah blah--I'm an indie hipster who thinks I'm cool because I read Brooklyn Vegan (which of course, is one of the 'scene' things that actually IS awesome) and think I'm holier than thou and cool because I can count words AND hate on someone whose happily doing their own thing.
