It’s been a good run, tumblr friends, but Suicidewatch’s days are numbered. the DMCA notifications were just too many and now Yahoo is about to drop the hammer on my 6 year old blog. copyright law is a motherfucker. this should be expected when you name your blog Suicidewatch. Anyways my blog might be dying, but sadly I will live on as a wandering spirit of the internet moaning about all those lost followers (there are a fuckload of you!!!)
I have a new tumblr account called ONLY THE YOUNG DIE YOUNG which is basically just gonna be Suicidewatch part 2 where I will be shifting posts. lots of reblogging and reposting will be going on over there.
if you want an archive for all of my mixes, they are reposted over on my blogspot account Ghettoblasters and Switchblades. my flickr account has most all of the images I have ever scanned for this blog. my Instagram is where you can stalk my sad boring boring life. and twitter is where you can see me complain about football and tv shows and comic books and lots of other uninteresting shit.
thanks to everyone who followed this blog for 6 years, messaged me, chatted about music, reblogged my playlists, and basically made this a fun distraction.
TURF WAR Fall Tour starts tonight! We got dates with Concord America and Natural Child, so come out when we hit your town.

as you guys may or may not know, tumblr is threatening to delete my blog for all my many copyright violations, and so in the spirit of our impending split I made tumblr a break-up mixtape. maybe she will listen to it and forgive me. anyways, with Suicidewatch coming to a likely end, I started a new blog Only The Young Die Young that you guys can follow. thanks. Love you guys.
currently listening to the new Iceage album, Plowing Into The Field Of Love. after releasing one of the more exciting rock albums of the last 10 years these Danish boys have apparently decided instead of just delivering another energetic blast of fractured art-punk that they were gonna change things up for the 3rd go ‘round. Iceage have stayed with 1980s post-punk as the era of music guiding their sound but they have traded in their Joy Division and Death In June fetishes for the jangly cow-punk and piano ballads of Crime & The City Solution and The Gun Club. this is the kind of album that hopefully will be a gateway record for kids to the more difficult and eclectic realms of punk rock. this isn’t the sort of album I would have guessed these guys were gonna be making when I first saw them about 3 years ago but I am glad they are growing and trying new shit.
Plowing Into the Field of Love isn’t as instantly catchy or engaging of You’re Nothing or New Brigade but it’s still a solid album from one of the more interesting contemporary bands around.
