Baroness

Word from the band:

The band members of Baroness and their crew are recovering from injuries sustained after their tour bus crashed outside of Bath, England early on Wednesday morning.

John Baizley has broken his left arm and left leg. Allen Blickle and Matt Maggioni each suffered fractured vertebrae. All three remain in the hospital as of this writing. Pete Adams has been treated and released from the hospital.

Three of the five crew members who were on the bus have also been treated and released. One member is still undergoing testing. The driver of the bus remains in critical condition.

Foreigners have to pay out of pocket for health care?

Only a total asshole would comment "Lulz" after information about injuries in a bus accident. Fuck you.

Actually it's a little less "total asshole" than "complete sociopath"

Actually it's just a completely useless person looking for attention.

"There must be some way out of here", said the joker to the thief.
"There's too much confusion, I can't get no relief.
Businessmen, they drink my wine, plowmen dig my earth.
None of them along the line know what any of it is worth".


"No reason to get excited", the thief he kindly spoke.
"There are many here among us who feel that LIFE IS BUT A JOKE.
But you and I, we've been through that, and this is not our fate.
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late".


All along the watchtower, princes kept the view.
While all the women came and went, barefoot servants, too.


Outside in the distance a wildcat did growl.
Two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl.

No way they are going to make FYF. Damn, both they and Wild Flag canceled.

Hoping a speedy recovery for everyone.

Don't really care for Baroness (definitely not the new double album based on what I've heard), but best of luck to them in their recovery. Shit sucks.

^ wow. That's so magnanimous of you! You dislike them as a band BUT you wish them a speedy recovery? Someone call the Nobel peace prize committee, quick.

Godspeed Baroness. Maybe the anonymous comment thing should be re-examined. It seems people just can't be trusted to keep it classy.

Hey 8:15/8:20/9:12/9:48, isn't Lee Ranaldo, like, so uncool that he's actually, like, cool? I mean, like, it's the king of all irony, right? Haha! And doesn't Deerhunter, like, just "kill it" every time they play? and yes, unfortunately it's still a post-ironic world ever since LCD left us :(

sausage down! sausage down!

10:28: You mean like fop # 1127 there with his popped collar shirt, very shorty-short shorts, disgusting gigantic pink and blue rimmed sunglasses, and ugly flip flops?


I'd love to see the outcry here, if it was the tour bus for the Arcade Fire or even Radiohead. Let's see how bad it would be, if the table were turned on the trendy front.

I heard that they were all sucking each others dicks when the bus crashed, making their injuries worse.

That's what I heard.

God don't like that, it seems.

Thinks "hipsters" listen to Arcade Fire or Radiohead.

LULZ, doesn't understand/can't comprehend what being a "hipster" entails.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2012 1:03 PM

^ As if I needed even more evidence (aside from the dead giveaway of "LULZ"), above all else being a trendy loser hipster entails an above-it-all attitude and a false sense of entitlement. Oh, and a false sense of reality, that when it does come crashing down (tenfold that of this bus crash), it'll break up your little trendy "post-ironic" world. But it's ok. Enjoy life, trendie!

Sounds like one of your dreams with the encounter with Mandingo there, eh? Amirite? EH?

LULZ@ 1:07 "Enjoy life, trendie!"

Oh, don't worry. I will. The money's on my side.

You wouldn't know anything about that, would you?

1:35: What money? The one that your dear old mommy and daddy send to you every month in your super-tiny apartment in WB? You should be more like me and, in the words of M.O.D., get a real job.

1:30: I always love it when the trendies project their rabid "aggression" towards anything metal. It's so amusing :) Latent rage from being put into lockers all those years maybe?

1:45: you love me! You really do! Ya can't get enough of me! and you don't even know who I really am! I'm D! Ahahaha!


It's ok. You might get lucky if I bother to await your standard "steamed sausage" or "BUCKEYE SHRIMPER" comment. The predictability never fails. Thank you, Cleveland! I rule.

1:35- no one with real money would say that. You couldn't possibly be any more of a poseur.
