HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM ITP/HAILS TO 2010



 HAILS! Have an awesome New Year, and a GREAT 2010 as we end this decade of turmoil and change, progression and great metal.
Am I getting old or wow, 20 years ago, things were waay different in music or has digital technology changed everything?..
* I don't think 2012 will be the end of the world, I'm more fearful of those whom really believe the apocalypse will happen in 2012 . Remember Y2K 10 years ago, nothing happened, as Y2K was the greatest marketing scam to motivate all to buy new 'puters.
*Has the old model of the music industry really ever worked? Make digital technology work for the artist and see how much $ you save, and cut out the middle man.
*All those awesome doom bands that tour Europe need to tour North America (Worship, Ahab, Esoteric should hook up with Sunn O)) , My Dying Bride or Neurosis.)
*2009 was a very good year for death metal, and expect some innovative black metal from one man and DSBM projects this decade, a changing of the guard of sorts.
* ITP had a career high in posts this year in 2009, as I expanded, focused and structured this journal to include reviews, pics, videos and news features. As much as I've posted, I feel, I haven't been as productive as I wanted too (I didn't have enough time for layouts, new logo, maybe in 2010). I hope you enjoy the journal, I enjoy writing it.
*BTW, ITP journal will change title (sort of) from Individual thought Patterns V.09 to INDIVIDUAL THOUGHT PATTERNS V.010 (including ITP title/year change regarding syndicates) representing the new year 2010 tonight.
*ITP BEST OF 2009, RE RATE (re rate of reviews) and maybe ITP BEST OF 1999-2009 this month in January 2010.
*HUMANITY IS DOOMED, DAMNED IN BLACK, NOTES FROM THE EXTREME METAL UNDERGROUND (NOV./DEC. EDITION) coming up tonight and this weekend, I'm very sorry for the lateness in those features.
*If you've noticed, ITP journal is little off kilter in terms of graphics in JUNE of 2009, (font to large, I think I fixed that.), the NEDA situation (murdered bystander in IRAN) alarmed me, it tried to fix that journal entry, edited a little, and the journal entry stays as is..ITP V.09 is dedicated to the memory of NEDA, every LBGT person whom was hanged for simply loving someone of the same gender, every metal head in the middle east whom risk incarceration for playing and listening to the music they love and all the braves souls whom perished in the IRANIAN protests, NEDA will NEVER be forgotten.
*BTW, INDIVIDUAL THOUGHT PATTERNS V.09 and V.010 is now on FACEBOOK ( new syndicate, I just noticed two days ago, sowee) thanks to all my friends on BLOGGED (http://apps.facebook.com/blogged/blogs/individual-thought-patterns-v08/). Brootal.
I've never been motivated to get a personal account on FACEBOOK, however, consolidated with BLOGGED, ITP is now on FACEBOOK.
*TECHNORATI changed servers and I forgot all about ITP over there (sowee), we're working on upgrading ITP V.010 on the TECHNORATI syndicate. ITP is STILL there, but I almost forgot, but really haven't and YOU shouldn't either.
*Here's to more brutal metal this up and coming decade and more innovations in extreme metal genres. Have a great \m/etal NEW YEAR as we end this decade, peace and blastbeats.
Thanks-Stay Metal, Stay Brutal, HAPPY NEW YEAR, HAVE A METAL 2010-\m/ -l-
ITP V.09 dedicated to the memory of NEDA.

METAL AT THE MOVIES PART 20: MELLODRAMA: THE MELLOTRON MOVIE


A new documentary about the musical instrument dubbed the MELLOTRON (featured on many BEATLES, OPETH and BEACH BOYS CD's, baseball games) entitled "MELLODRAMA: THE MELLOTRON MOVIE" (DIANNA DILWORTH) features TONY IOMMI (BLACK SABBATH) MIKE AKERFELDT and PER WILBERG (OPETH) and many others is now out on DVD from BAZILLION POINTS..










FROM MELLODRAMA: THE MELLOTRON MOVIE:
Pioneering musical greats THE MOODY BLUES, KING CRIMSON, GENESIS, CHEAP TRICK, THE BEACH BOYS, GOBLIN, and many others in exploring the gripping and often obsessive tale of the Chamberlin and its better-known successor the Mellotron — the first musical keyboards to play the pre-recorded sounds of other instruments.

While the Mellotron is most closely linked with THE BEATLES' "Strawberry Fields Forever" and progressive rock, BLACK SABBATH used Mellotrons on at least four mid-1970s albums, notably to simulate a string section on their 1972 hit "Changes". More recently, the strange magnetic-tape keyboards have been utilized by adventurous Scandinavian bands, including ENSLAVED, SHINING, and OPETH.

As OPETH's Per Wiberg explains his band's use of the "spooky" Mellotron sounds: "Any instrument can be a metal instrument, it depends on the attitude you have when you're playing."

UPDATE: 3/9/2010: JAPANESE EXTREME METAL is being shown at the 2010 ROAD BURN FESTIVAL in HOLLAND : http://ow.ly/1gm6j
FROM DETRITUM:
Hey Guys,

Visual Justice Films continues to bring you the BEST in Japanese extreme metal. Now you can watch the complete movie "Japanese Extreme Metal the Documentary" on Youtube!

Enjoy!
-Mark Keller
FROM ROAD BURN 2010 FESTIVAL- 3/9/2010: We are proud to announce that in cooperation with Visual Justice Films we will be showing Japanese Extreme Metal, The Documentary. A documentary that transcends stereotypes and entrenched perceptions of nationality, society and subcultures. Japanese Extreme Metal: The Documentary is the brainchild of Mark Keller, the singer for the Tokyo based band Detritum.

Keller is a 14 year veteran of Japan and his fascinating exposé of the extreme metal scene in this supposedly most conservative of nations blows the lid off the commonly held misconception that bubble gum pop and boy bands offer Eastern youth the only homegrown teats to suckle on for their musical nourishment.

“Japan is a gold mine of amazing and original extreme music, largely undiscovered. Please realize that Japanese people are quite shy and getting interviews out of them can be like pulling teeth, but they have amazing talents and imaginations when it comes to extreme music. In this documentary I traveled from Da-Saitama to Tokyo, to Osaka trying to get those rotten teeth pulled. So please, sit back, put your feet up, and enjoy the pain. Saviour this small taste of what is one of the largest and most intense underground scenes in the world today.”

UNTIL THE LIGHT TAKES US DIRECTOR GUESTS ON THE PARAFACTOR


Aaron Aites and Audrey Ewell, the filmmakers behind black metal documentary "Until The Light Takes Us" will guest on "The ParaFactor" on Thursday, January 7, 2010 at 10:00 p.m. EST. Do check out this documentary.
FROM THE PARAFACTOR.COM:

"The ParaFactor" can be heard every Thursday night between 9:00 p.m. and midnight EST at www.theparafactor.com.

The story is infamous. It begins like this: In the late '80s and early '90s, a small underground scene of Norwegian metal musicians was forming. At the same time, Norwegian churches started to burn. As reporters and police scrambled for answers, church after church went up in flames. The authorities had no leads until musician Varg "Count Grishnackh" Vikernes, a complex thinker with an unconventional set of extreme nationalistic, anti-Christian and anti-Semitic beliefs, took credit. He was held for questioning long enough for the media to run with a largely fabricated story.

Spurred on by lurid reports of Satanic rituals, abductions and sacrifices, other young men began to appropriate the idea of black metal. Taking cues from Grishnackh, and finding encouragement in the man many thought of as the scene's godfather, Øystein "Euronymous" Aarseth, they began a rash of copycat church burnings and other serious crimes. This lead to wider media coverage and black metal, or rather the sensationalized version of it, grew in popularity until it was available in record stores world-wide and was profiled in every major music publication, from Spin to Rolling Stone to Vice, even serving as the inspiration for popular animated shows in the U.S. Successful visual artists such as Harmony Korine and Bjarne Melgaard (both interviewed in the film) are now recontextualizing black metal as contemporary art in international exhibitions.

Part modern art movement, part terrorist movement, part rock scene, black metal has many meanings to many people and is fraught with misperceptions. "Until The Light Takes Us" gives the originators the chance to reveal, in their own words, what it was all about. Far from a 'rockumentary", the film is a thoughtful examination of this enigmatic movement, the impact it has had on the world and the lasting effect the world has had on its creators.

Featuring the music of: BLACK DICE, BOARDS OF CANADA, BURZUM, DARKTHRONE, ENSLAVED, GORGOROTH, LESSER, MAYHEM, MUM, SUNN 0))), THORNS, ULVER.

"Until the Light Takes Us" is directed by Aaron Aites and Audrey Ewell, whose collaborative visual, installation and video art has been shown in galleries and museums in New York, Europe, and Japan. UNTIL THE LIGHT TAKES US SHOW LISTINGS DECEMBER 2009/ JANUARY 2010:

ULCERATE FINAL WORDS OF 2009 and AUSTRALIAN TOUR ANNOUNCEMENT

New Zealand tech death metal masters ULCERATE have announced a February 2010 AUSTRALIAN tour.
FROM ULCERATE: Firstly, a huge thankyou to all in Europe who made an effort to watch us do our thing over the past month, we appreciate the support! We also have to put in a huge collective thanks to all in Nile, Krisiun, Grave, Corpus Mortale and Hackneyed for being such awesome tour partners. And to all the Massive Music crew - Darek, Fabricio, Vacek, Kuba, Michael, Brovar - cheers for being consummate professionals and making our lives a whole lot easier!

In other news Ulcerate will be touring Australia in February 2010 with grind act Beyond Terror Beyond Grace as main support, poster left, and details to the right...

We also have a limited supply of the 'Tyranny' shirt as leftover tour stock. We will be reprinting both this design and the 'Drown Within' design in a matter of weeks, all available in the Store section.

And finally, we will begin the writing for album #3 in the coming weeks. Pointless at this stage to give any solid indications of where we will be heading with the material, but naturally it will be a continuation of the strongest points of Everything is Fire.

LARS ULRICH (METALLICA) SUFFERING FROM TINNITUS

EDITORS NOTE: Good timing to bring up ear and hearing issues, as the editor of this journal (ITP) had suffered from intense vertigo for 10 days, although it's a little better now, as that might (not confirmed) be from an inner ear infection (http://www.formulamedical.com/Topics/Head&Neck/inner%20ear%20infection%20labyrinthitis.htm and http://www.healthscout.com/ency/68/462/main.html ), or low blood pressure, not sure yet. Hearing loss or tinnitus (ringing in the ears) is a real issue for people whom have the vocational hazard of working in loud places or around loud people or machinery (construction workers, musicians, veterans, military, club and arena staff,). ITP editor has seen MOTORHEAD live (Awesome, one of the loudest bands on earth, they turn down their stage monitors and the amps are up and loud) and my hearing was muted for about 3 days, then again, I stood real close to the amplifiers. The club staff were warning us about how LOUD MOTORHEAD are stating "that was the loudest soundcheck they have ever witnessed" in the years they worked at said club. We scoffed at the threat of loudness, laughing. After I got Lemmy of MOTORHEAD's autograph I realized wow, this really is loud, and this indeed is MOTORHEADS schtick (intentionally) , as all of my friends had muted hearing after the show, myself for three days. I saw MOTORHEAD again this time WITH earplugs as I was just fine after the show.
I wonder of MOTORHEAD have tinnitus, maybe not, they turn down they're stage monitors.
Ringing in your ears sounds like a "swishing sound" or "eeeeeeeeee" like an EBS test.
"This one goes to 11"-SPINAL TAP-Notice LARS ULRICH (METALLICA) wears earplugs, and stage monitor earplugs, so he can hear the rest of his band. Regarding drummers, they don't need amps and don't mic their kits unless they are playing in clubs or the enormodome. Drummers (acoustic) can't just turn down the volume on their instrument, as the volume regarding drummers depends on how hard they hit the drum heads and cymbals. Drummers kits are miced in clubs, and if drummers use triggers, as that can be an issue of loudness as well, as I hate triggers as there is either no volume control regarding that drumming accessory, it's too mechanical of a sound with no dynamics of hard or soft drumming. My friends whom are drummers refuse to use any volume control.
If you're a musician touring/ playing out in bars, clubs whatever, speak to the sound tech about the "mix" on each instrument, tremble and the volume.
Some suggestions for home and studio drummers, however, I hate the sound of triggered or over processed drums:
http://www.extremedrums.com/25660.html
http://production.marshillchurch.org/2009/11/20/what-do-you-do-with-loud-drums/
http://www.acousticdrums.com/members/esp-1qtr03.html
Also, use earplugs (and headphones) in the studio and rehearsal, radio DJ's and club DJ's as well, specifically in a small area, even if your rehearsal/recording studio is soundproofed.
For all you musicians out there, TURN DOWN YOUR STAGE MONITORS just a little bit, and wear earplugs as a spectator or musician when playing, listening to music, or in a bar, club or sporting event with alot of people.
If a musician (specifically singers) can not hear themselves from stage monitors, they tend to sing that much louder, there fore straining their voice.
If you you're listening to music with headphones on, turn down the volume regarding that accessory as well and save your hearing.
With advances in stereo and puter technology these days (I've gotta get this), wireless/remote computer headphones are on the market, built for music reviewers like ME, whom pop a CD in their CD ROM, and review CD's WHILE listening to the music. With these remote/wireless computer headphones on the market, you will not feel CHAINED to one spot on your 'puter while listening to music and reviewing releases at the same time, there fore developing CPS
(carpel tunnel syndrome), and a stiff neck. Even with headphones keep the volume down to avoid hearing problems.
http://www.tradekey.com/kb-wireless-computer-headphones/
Bring and wear earplugs to any show you go to, even in bars or clubs with DJ's (as bars don't usually have sound techs) you WILL HEAR the music. However, earplugs mute a few decibels and treble.
Douchebag ghetto thugs whom blast rap and r and b from their car stereos, BAD IDEA. Ghetto thugs have a tendency to mix the EQ on their car stereos with the bass waayy UP, causing a distorted vibration regarding others windows and ears, including their own. Unless the producer of their fave Retards Attempting Poetry (RAP) record SUCKS and mixed the CD badly with inaudible bass, there is NO REASON to jack up the EQ on the bass of a car stereo, annoying everyone and destroying their own hearing.
Feedback annoys most people, don't park your guitar next to your amp while both are turned on, and the roar of a crowd through stage monitors and can effect sound, and confuse the band, and amplify that sound, so good backline and sound techs (they also wear earplugs) are in good order. A band front man/woman may ask the crowd at a show "to make some noise", it's AWESOME when 100, 000 or more people do make noise, but a good sound tech will turn DOWN the stage monitors just a wee bit, as that crowd noise is amplified through mics and stage monitors and 100, 000 sounds like 500, 000 people to the band and stage crew as that sound is amplified back to the crowd.
Sound techs are really important people for concerts and festivals because if the sound sucks, well, weird things start happening, the singer starts to over compensate, the crowd moves closer to the stage (to hear the music) causing a "crowd surge" people get crushed in the surge.
Tinnitus effects millions as it not an issue of "musical preferences" or "genres" but vocational territory or an enviornment of volume, loudness and mass gathering of people and their volume.
Pete Townsend of legendary rock band THE WHO also suffers from tinnitus.
I'm sure I (the author of ITP) have had some sort of intermittent tinnitus over the years, wearing earplugs at home has been suggested to me, although I do wear headphones, there is nothing like the sound of silence.
The irony about a member of METALLICA having tinnitus, METALLICA's rider agreement states that opening acts have to play at a lower volume (less decibels) than METALLICA.
I would have to say SLAYER, METALLICA, BLACK SABBATH, VAN HALEN have some of the loudest FANS as most fans go nuts when a band hits the stage, for the above mentions bands, the cheering goes on throughout the entire show, and never lets up. I once went to a VAN HALEN show in '87, and the fans cheered from the bus on the way to the show straight to the venue, and during the entire show.
Gotta love it.

LOUDEST BANDS LIVE: ITP's HUMBLE OPINION:

ITP AUTHOR IS A TENNENT AT MEADOBROOK FARMS, (MEADOBROOK CIRCLE) NEW PALTZ, NY and A VICTIM OF HARRRASMENT AS WE ARE SUING


PIC TO THE LEFT: THE GRAVEL MY NEIGHBOR(307-Melanie Bussell) LEFT BEHIND AS SHE KICKED GRAVEL ON ME AFTER TRYING TO ATTACK ME AFTER I CALLED THE COPPERS ON HER, suspicious black guy on the right with his mouth running.

11/18/2006:

For some reason, I feel a need to sue neighbors (Meadobrook) 309 and 307 and MEADOBROOK CIRCLES management others (whom don't even know me, I don't want to know them), yes this is really happening, for continued harassment and annoyance as I can't get in my door without some idiot loitering there, and trying to ask questions or make ignorant statements, wich I don't respond to, totally out of context to any conversation. I will sue for slander, defamation of character and continued harassment (sexual as well), HUD has been contacted.
So in retribution Karen Kohanski (maligned property manager at MEADOBROOK CIRCLE, New Paltz, NY) wrote me a slanderous, libelous letter, riddled with awful handwriting and terrible spelling, because I complained to HUD, same exact DAY. There are TWO more HUD complaints I filed coming in by Monday, and a lawsuit as well for slander, PERJURY, false accusations, defamation of character because I have no verbal or physical contact with said people and Kohanski is lying. Of course Karen Kohanski hates this journal, because I'm RIGHT about her staff (superintendent and maintenance and her self) and Meadobrook, they are drug dealers and users. If she wants the debate the issue, I will sue her as well. I've heard years of blatant lying and slandering my name, the nuttier rumors perpetuated by MEADOBROOK CIRCLE staff, their friends and that you can smell someones breath through the walls and bullshit of the sort while her staff was using and dealing cocaine and drugs. Obviously no one can believe anything Karen Kohanski says, in retribution of her drug dealing co workers getting busted, Kohanski is guilty of slander and defamation.
Ironically during the last 10 days, I've had the worst case of VERTIGO and I was pretty upset and the slowness of the posting of a bill payment that I already paid.
Yes, I will sue for any more drama, wich doesn't involve around them, or even me,
What I say on the phone in my crib, aint none of your business.
Complaining about MY personal items that are NOT property of said management or there, and continued harassment because I have a disibilty that's been proven.
Including bad coppers, so think twice about what you do, and how seriously you take these moronic douches living to close to me, whom don't know me. This message is meant as a deterrent from behavior, if not, take the lawsuit, because I love the smell of money.
My neighbors to the flank side of me two tenets that live next door love to talk shit, lie, harassment and tease people. I can not walk in or out of my door without being picked on, some idiots in 307 and 309 making rude comments about me or others when they are not my friends, and Melanie Bussell 11/18/2006 trying to attack me, kicking gravel on my doorstep, bottom landing of my staircase, and half way up my staircase when I stood in OWN doorway and waited for police to come after I called them, in front of my own apartment. After I had Melanie Bussell arrested she somehow LIED and was given a countercharge against me the same month that J BONE (suicide) and my foster mom passed. The charges were dropped on both sides on an ACD in early January of 2007.
Perhaps now I regret not going all the way because I could have taken this case vs. Bussell to trial and WON. I now regret NOT taking the case vs. Bussell to trial as I have PICTURES to prove that gravel was kicked on me, and unlike these violent douches here, pictures don't LIE.
MELANIE BUSSELL is too VIOLENT and I did NOTHING AFTER she kicked the gravel, I didn't touch nor threaten her at all, but I do have a right to protect myself.. I've been the victim of too much violence due to living underneath bad management in a bad environment full of coke heads., literally, and it aint me, I don't do drugs.
As for the Management and staff during the last 5 years at MEADOBROOK CIRCLE it's been a nightmare, the superintendent was rude to everyone, has broken into my apartment and abused the master key without any notice with no work order 9/11/2008. Any complaint I've had about the management I've logged straight to HUD HOUSING and posted on this journal.
I have not included or made any verbal or physical threats in my complaints and I've had NOTHING to say about to and about them in PERSON.


Ironically, Melanie Bussel decided to get way to comfy and sit on a chair in front of my doorstep late September 2009, with the back of the chair facing my door, blocking my only entrance and exit way into my apartment, wich happens quite often, as often these neighbors make sarcastic comments, major fights in the household of 309, and I don't want to talk to them. I opened the door to see what the fuss was about and she was there, I closed my door and shook my head stating nothing.
I have pictures to prove where the gravel landed and I will posted right now, and bump this entry every day for months on end.
In fact (Kathy Brenner 309-Meadobrook Circle) walked out of her apartment and knocked on 307 door making some sarcastic comment about me as I keyed into my apartment, in between the two.
We suspect 307 of using drugs.
In fact, when I was on the phone with a friend of mine, complaining about neighbors making sarcastic comments and their bad behavior after I keyed into my apartment, the cops were called on me in my own home when I was on the phone, venting, it was after nightfall, the management office was closed, and I had the worst case of vertigo. There WAS NO, verbal or physical confrontation between me nor the management and anyone else last Monday or Tuesday, I went to sleep with an awful case of vertigo and barely left home.
I spoke to the coppers and now the management are accusing me of making threats to them and a few neighbors, as that indeed is another LIE, as there was no such confrontation, I was in my home, as 309 (Kathy Brenner) made a sarcastic comment on my way in, as I ignored it, and went inside. The management office was not open in the evening and it was after nightfall, as I've had no contact with Meadobrook staff, even putting a note on my door refusing an exterminator visit earlier this month, as the vertigo set in.
In FACT, every time I pay rent and have any contact with management I have a TAPE RECORDER in my pocket, on play and record to prove who said what. I'll be more than happy to give any tapes to the police and prove MEADOBROOK CIRCLE NEW PALTZ, NY obnoxious behavior and lying, in fact, the management use a few of their buddy tenets and others and have made threats towards ME.
Booh, fucking hoo, GHETTOBROOK.
In fact, I've been the victim of senseless violence (Charles Bridge-whom is a level three sex offender, stranger to me, Timothy Cannon,as only Melanie Bussell is a tennet as I've never been the victim of such violence before) during the last few years due in part to bad management and their bad associations, conspiracies and agendas and their abuse of tenets under the decoy of the managements drug abuse.
WHY are Meadobrook Circles, New Paltz, NY Management and staff lying, because the truth hurts and DRUGS suck, as Meadobrook circle, New Paltz, NY superintendent, a few of their staff, and a few moronic tenets were busted for the sale and the dealing of cocaine just last month, with weapons, it made the local news as this is a statement of FACT. Keep in mind that it is MEADOBROOK CIRCLE, NEW PALTZ, NY's staff whom are dealing drugs, making threats towards innocent tenets, harassing people ect, whom are not "buyers" or playing there game as a decoy for what THEY do..In fact ELI C. ERAZO whom lived (past tense) at 512 Meadobrook Circle, New Paltz, NY WAS the superintendent as he was caught in possession, and illegal distribution of cocaine and marijuana (one on a DWI in late OCTOBER), the MEADOBROOK management and staff and a few others ARE really that self destructive and do that to themselves. In fact, I've sent out a few HUD complaints earlier this week :
I will sue MEADOBROOK CIRCLE, NEW PALTZ, NY and 307 and 309 for this constant harassment, bullying, slander, defamation of character, intimidation and threats, homophobic comments as the only threat I made is to sue, and we're right on it, and they HAVE been busted, thanks to URGENT.

This is a true scenario (reprinted and updated for a ITP journal entry 7/2009:
*I OVER paid my rent in ( OVERCHARGE in rent-where I currently live) 2002, and NEVER got a refund. I've always paid my rent.
* A cycle for painting (painting my apartment) is an issue here, as tenet landlord relationships are often adversarial. It does NOT clarify in my lease nor tenant handbook that tenets have to PAY out of POCKET for painting cycle cost, routine every four years.. In the fact that I over paid my rent, why is that $ not recovered or pro rated towards such as security.That is extortion, and
embezzlement.
*I've have not seen the interest on my security deposit since 2003.
*If the tenant is manipulated to pay for painting costs out of pocket (embezzlement, extortion, via management?), the tenets they should be able to choose there own contractor. Since said painting contractor used to be my neighbor in 1999, 2000, 2001 (at a different residence) and he put a condom on my doorknob, he is not allowed in my rental, or near me.
*Also the same contractor (Tony Velequez) built the storm door backwards with no outside lock or key, and did a horrible job on the painting of my bathroom before I moved in.
*Velequez was being evicted in 2000/01 at my former residence,at the time the landlord re considered for Tony, however, I saw the Sheriffs department deliver the eviction notice. I simply got fed up with living at 40 North Chestnut (next door to him, and the noisy shit talking in front of my door) and didn't renew my lease and moved across the street after OVERPAYING my rent at 40 N. Chestnut. Velequez put a condom on my door knob in 2001 when I lived down town, when I was work, as I relocated my bed to avoid the noise from the other side of wall.
*Said tennet does not have a contract with said painting contractor, just a lease with a management company.
*On a 4 year painting cycle, I signed something in 2006 saying I refused the painting cycle, dislocated knee at the time from late '05, (wrote a journal entry about it and everything) and I shouldn't be bothered until the next 4 year painting cycle.
*This is not a mandated not smoking apartment complex (like i would live here if it was?)
*Water sealing is/ should be routine maintenance wear sinks, and water usage occurs. Not really a big deal for me. The management blames the tennents, because they are cheap and greedy.
*Of course the unbelievable amount of gossip as complete strangers are mocking me, and making homophobic comments close to where I live, enough that hate crimes have perpetuated against me, as those people have been undercharged including sex offenders and jealous squatters. I have every right to defend myself, and sue, and that's quite tame for the way we feel right now.
*That attack on me via Timothy Cannon that I briefly mentioned, um, the same day that some other douche that attacked me ( JULY 2008-Charles Bridge-a stranger to me-http://criminaljustice.state.ny.us/cgi/internet/nsor/fortecgi?serviceName=WebNSOR&templateName=detail.htm&requestingHandler=WebNSORDetailHandler&ID=460981298) had to have his picture taken for his level 3 sex offender registry.
*Crimes this management has committed towards me: *Turning off my water January 2009 while I was taking a shower, causing my toilet to overflow as that is NOT my fault, and that can cause water damage, stress, just one day after I was discharged from hospital. There was NO water in my apartment that day, as I patiently waited for the water to be turned back on.
*Walking into the apartment (superintendent Erazo) without a work order after I took a shower and left my house, intentionally, no consent, a year to the date of a friend of mines funeral.(9/11/08)
*My door was found opened after a night out in December of 2007, just two days before X-mas, I walked into my apartment ducking as if I had been burglarized. Not sure if I didn't lock my door, or if the super went in there and abused the privilege of the master key.
This is illegal for landlords/management do to to lease bearing rent paying tenets.
*Using homophobic language, and not protecting tennents privacy for..what? GREED, issues unrelated to housing.
*Let's open up the books on the management and the contractor and let them prove they are not fraudulent, out of pocket costs for the tenet goes where? In there pocket. I OVERPAID my rent via being OVERCHARGED my rent, I hardly noticed until they clarified clerical errors of there own.
*You break it, you bought it, if I have to sue, at the very least, anyone in my apartment without supervision can not be here, including the superintendent.
*Anything they have already stolen goes into a huge lawsuit including medical bills, for permanent scar on my forehead (20 stitches- Snug's Harbor 38 main str. new paltz, ny), including their intimidation and threats, punitive damages.
*I just want my money back, my lawyer (deuce) is checking for any embezzlement vs. HUD LAW, and also EOH/FAIR HOUSING states equal opportunity for gays, otherwise I can't stand the homophobia, and criminal mischief around here, find something else to
do. What? It's on..
*I'll pay $200.00 to deuce and the management will lose more than they can possibly gain from exploiting me, since they owe me money.
*Trying to criminalize me over something that is NOT a matter of my ethics but a denial on others part, this is a civil court matter and they provoked it, in their lack of ethics and illegal behavior.
*In January 1st 2009 (New Years Day-a federal holiday), same day I was in the hospital for injuries via a drug addicted squatter attacking me, the management where I live wrote a note saying I would have to pay the "market rate" of rent if I didn't re certify. Of course I been living here for over 7 years, re certify and renewed every year (I'm not a noob) as the management put the cart before the horse, before they sent me a scheduled appointment for re-certification. Another unsuccessful attempt (from the management) to embezzle low income people. Of course it worked out, I don't have the pay the market rate, but I resent the obnoxious attitude, drama, at the most inopportune times.
*Whatever I comply to, does not guarantee my privacy, safety or stability, why should I commit to this crap?
Extortion, price gouging and embezzlement will NOT be tolerated.
*Not to mention laundry facilities. So I did my laundry on the premises for years, and wondered how much money I spent to get my clothes dry without someone opening up the dryer mid cycle, stalking me when there clothing is not in any machines (309), as my clothing was barely getting dry. 2006, there was a power outtage in the middle of me doing laundry in building 6, and I had to drag my clothes, heavy and water logged across the street as nothing worked, and I was NOT refunded. Warning: as many loads to dry as to wash. So the management remolded the laundry facilities, and as it's no longer coin op.
Then others pretend they don't the difference between my damp clothing, before totally dried and the appliances and resources they provide for the tenets.
*Stealing my clothing in December of 2004, death and black metal t-shirts, very expensive, they must have opened up the dryer in the dry cycle.
*Constant harassment from neigbors whom make sarcastic comments and some whom are violent 307 (Melanie Bussell-kicking gravel at me, NOV. 2006) and 309 (Kathy Brenner) as I can't take the harassment and lying, plus I hear every word they say through the walls every day and it's horrifying. When they don't work, they pick fights, I'm creative. There's a creepy guy living next door in 307 whom makes homophobic, perverted comments.

*The tactics that MEADOBROOK use when there is routine maintenance, harassing tenets before there are given written notice, giving preferential treatments to their cokeheaded friends, letting them know before written notice, as other tenets whom are not the drug buyers are harassed (real tension and mudslinging-awful) before routine maintenance, and can't figure out why.
*Slander, defamation of character and lying about tenets as a decoy for what the MEADOBROOK (DRUGS) staff and management do with their friends, and illegal tactics, blaming the victim, treating the good tenets like crap, afraid of the consequences of their behavior via lying about others.
*Too many clerical errors on the leases, inaccurate, OMG.
*Kathy Brenner (309 Meadobrook Circle, New Paltz, NY) has a tendency to pick fights with neigbors as there has been a high transition and turnover rate of tenets living next door to her in the 7 1/2 years I've lived here. 309 Brenner gets a CEASE and DESIST from our attorney for copy write infringement regarding any production company I booked for or/and any band. If this poser/impersonator continues to act is of she "knows me" she does NOT and please do not fall for her impersonation or her fraudulence. 309 is NOT a part of the industry and has no credibility in any genre of music, she is literally NO ONE, not a musician, not in band, not a promoter do not be fooled. I don't want to, nor have I ever had any contact or convo with this cunt. 309 is kicked out of any metal shows, check her ID, and (in case she decides to show up), and is on blacklist.
Even the tenet whom lived in my apartment before ME, transferred to another apartment to avoid 309 (Kathy Brenner), and anyone whose lived in 310 has been a victim of Brenners harassment including my friends Shepard and Mellissa (and the tenet BEFORE them) whom are good people, and were forced to evacuate MEADOBROOK due to this awful neighbor, ask them.
We've "tolerated" 309 for yeears, and ya KNOW everyone is annoyed with 309. I'm HEARING 309, , and their interpretation of everything is waaay out of context. 309 doesn't work, and walks up to people complaining she doesn't have money, walking up to me and others and people whom she doesn't KNOW (wingnut) and says this, and we don't say anything we're thinking bitch is fired, she doesn't have a JOB. Is this cuntrag on drugs?
Not that I have any contact with this woman on or off line.
If 309 is harassing people whom are disabled and on SSA, ( because I'm myself) legally she is NOT supposed to be harassing others whom are disabled, although I ignore her harassment, really they should mind there own business, it any context to any convo, or anyone asking her or there opinion. Also, Kathy Brenner is not anything other than an anti metal, poser, impostor whom has ZERO credibility in any genre of music, and has NOTHING to do with any music scene, local, regional, or anywhere else. Kathy Brenner has jumped on the bandwagon of outdated scene rivalries wich do NOT involve nor revolve around her, over internet sites/forums (that I buy choice do not even post on) she does not OWN, as Brenner jumps on the bandwagon of any anti ITP sentiment, overrating people ect. based upon that sentiment and the whole anti "Tee" agenda, in some senseless act of rebellion when it is none of her business, and "pretends" to be friends with bands with any one we have an issue with, instigating fights. Of course, all of this alienates more people then it will draw, as my choice in musical or sexual preference is none of her business and will never change. In fact, ITP has probably been to far more hardcore shows than that poser Brenner who doesn't like music at all, . Of course we at ITP are NOT friends with "Brenner", she is wingnut most likely with a personality disorder, and we scratch our heads, who?, not someone whom we know nor like. The point of socialization is to find like minded people, in a common "like" instead of provoking hate, support what you LIKE instead of bash what you HATE. Brenners ego is bruised via ITP "Boo hoo" as she should see it as a deterrent from her behavior. Be careful of this poser "Kathy Brenner" she is nobody and I have credibility in radio, booking and promotion and metal/music journalism. ITP never have, nor never will endorse the actions of Kathy Brenner is she is no one in any genre of music.
If ya don't like metal don't listen to it, go listen to you Retards Attempting Poetry rap/crap instead. Don't read this journal, learn to read as illiterate as they are with awful reading comprehension skills.

Get rid of these coke heads and their illegal tactics as that would be in every current and potential tenets best interest.
Weird, because I'm pretty quite, and have headphones on my 'puter.
*Building the storm doors backwards, in front of the main door with no lock or key for the tenets, as the door locks from only the inside.
*Harassing people whom are disabled disproportionate to how the system works.
*Harassing gays stating "NO HOMOS" around us.
*Trying to censor, and making mocking statements about this journal and trying to interfere with me being on the net, when I have no contact with them on or off the net, all of this in their denial of statements of facts attributed to credible sources on this journal. The ACLU has been contacted about my freedom of speech and first amendment rights to make statements of fact however unfavorable of those in denial.
*Every time I pay rent, the management have some kind of statement to make, it's not really about me, vague in reference, although I asked no questions, have no convo with them, it's soo weird and surreal, that's why the tape recorder is on me when I see them, if not just for entertainment, on how sarcastic, unrealistic and obnoxious they can be.
*Taking what I say on and off line, waaay out of context.
*I was really surprised about the drug bust at Meadobrook but shouldn't be, I wondered what they were hiding, and honestly, I wouldn't know in my own little world of "metal" if they weren't so obnoxious, VIOLENT, and the tension wasn't so high, putting one and one together, as some people are afraid of what people may find out. I guess this journal is pretty "noisy" huh? What is the real issue here, I'm pretty quite, but people tend to create drama here, as a decoy for themselves. I feel there is no peace here, it's like living in war zone. ELI ERAZO (ex superintendent at MEADOBROOK CIRCLE) would say stupid shit to my face as I walking by after running and errand, "Change you're underwear" (retort: when you pay for my clothing and return what you stole, then you'll tell me what to wear and when to wear it) and sexually explicit comments, and out of context, maybe my clothes aren't getting dry enough after PAYING for their laundry facilities. The MEADOBROOK gossip mill gets out of control in denial of their own issues and sets a dangerous and negative precedent as I've been treated quite differently because of this, and if these attacks on me have anything to do with MEADBROOK's denial, the lawsuit will be huge.
I was so glad when the finally busted ERAZO, as the MEADOBROOK staff and a few tenets whom are friends of theirs can say whatever they want about anyone, however, distorted, irrelevant and untrue it is, but If make statements of fact in this journal, they don't see that as a deterrent from behavior and a preventive measure. MEADOBROOK should be ashamed as their overreaction is to cover for their bad deeds. I'm very disappointed to say the least.
BTW, this VERTIGO during the last 10 days, I hope it's not because of a head injury, we're hoping it's because of ear stones screwing my equilibrium, hopefully I can get in and out of here without any drama.
MEADOBROOK their corrupt management and a a few corrupt tenets hanging with Erazo's friends are NOT THE VICTIMS they pretend to be. They are the victimizers, blaming the victims. We will not tolerate slander and defamatory statements as we will sue. Perjury charges will be pressed.

Pleasse don't repeat these peoples actions or what they have to say.

CHICAGO BAND EVIL INCARNATE APPEARANCE AT END OF DAYS FEST CANCELLED BECAUSE OF HOMOPHOBIC LYRICS


( ITP EDITORS NOTE: ITP has NEVER heard of this band before. However, being this is a venue other than EVIL INCARNATE's own, the promoters choose wich bands he/or she wants to book, no dice for EVIL INCARNATE. EVIL INCARNATE have the first amendment rights to express themselves lyrically in the USA, even if I or others don't agree with "perceived" homophobic lyrics (although I've never heard of this band and I've never read the bands lyrics).
ITP is a firm believer in freedom of speech and first amendment rights and we're anti censorship, as all ideals are put on the table for YOU to decide, organically, as whom should monitor wich "evil words shall be spoken", specifically lyrically, if they're not spoken to YOU.. YOU make the decision. However, the promoters of the END OF DAYS 2 fest have a right NOT to book said band, it's not EVIL INCARNATES venue, and it's another promoters fest. Ya know, this controversy over EVIL INCARNATES alleged homophobic lyrics is as much attention as this unsigned demo band is ever going to get, lol. Also, it is very weird that EVIL INCARNATE would promote the bands music via homophobic compilations or "hate groups" such as SMASHING RAINBOWS: "Rock Against Homosexuality". ITP also stands firmly against homophobia, and national socialism, if I were a promoter I wouldn't book EVIL INCARNATE, indifferent from a bands draw, I wouldn't want a homophobic or national socialist draw or atmosphere at any shows . BTW, the underlining theme of black metal is about hate or hatred of humanity, so it is inevitable that someone is going to be offended, specifically religious groups. Is there an egalitarian theme to hatred, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation? "I hate everyone equally, you can't tear that out of me, no segregation, no separation just me and my world of enemies-"SLAYER )

Chicago's White Star Club has canceled an appearance of death metal warriors  EVIL INCARNATE as gay rights activists threatened to protest allegedly homophobic lyrics in one of the bands songs. 
Gay Liberation Network protested lyrics of one of  EVIL INCARNATE's tunes, which describe the bombing of gays and African-Americans.

"We're not pleased if a band simply says they hate us," Andy Thayer, co-founder of the gay-rights group, told Chicago Breaking News, "but when you call for murdering people, that really crosses the line and that isn't free speech."

I'M TENNENT AND THE VICTIM OF HARASSMENT AT MEADOBROOK CIRCLE


For some reason, I feel a need to sue neigbors (Meadobrook) 309 and 307 and others (whom don't even know me, I don't want to know them), yes this is really happening, for continued harassment and annoyance as I can't get in my door without some idiot loitering there, and trying to ask questions or make ignorant statements, wich I don't respond to, totally out of context to any conversation. I will sue for slander, defamation of character and continued harassment (sexual as well), HUD has been contacted.
Yes, I will sue for any more drama, wich doesn't involve around them, or even me,
What I say on the phone in my crib, aint none of your business.
Complaining about MY personal items that are NOT property of said management or there, and continued harassment because I have a disibilty that's been proven.
Including bad coppers, so think twice about what you do, and how seriously you take these moronic douches living to close to me, whom don't know me. This message is mean as a deterrent from behavior, if not, take the lawsuit, because I love the smell of money.
The two tennets that live next door love to talk shit, lie, harassment and tease people. I can not walk in or out of my door without being picked on, some idiots in 307 and 309 making rude comments about me or others when they are not my friends, and Melanie Bussell 11/18/2006 trying to attack me, kicking gravel on my doorstep, bottom landing of staircase, and half way up my staircase when I stood in OWN doorway and waited for police to come after I called them, in front of my own apartment. After I had Melanie Bussell arrested she somehow LIED and was given a counter charge against me, right around the time that J BONE and my foster mom passed. The charges were dropped on both sides on an ACD in early January of 2007.
MELANIE BUSSELL is too VIOLENT and I did NOTHING AFTER she kicked the gravel, I didn't touch nor threaten her at all, but I do have a right to protect myself.. I've been the victim of too much violence due to living underneath bad management in a bad environment full of coke heads., literally, and it aint me, I don't do drugs.
As for the Management and staff during the last 5 years at MEADOBROOK CIRCLE it's been a nightmare, the superintendent was rude to everyone, has broken into my apartment and abused the master key without any notice with no work order 9/11/2008. Any complaint I've had about the management I've logged straight to HUD HOUSING and posted on this journal.
I have not included or made any verbal or physical threats in my complaints and I've had NOTHING to say about to and about them in PERSON.


Ironically, Melanie Bussel decided to get way to comfy and sit on a chair in front of my doorstep late September 2009, with the back of the chair facing my door, blocking my only entrance and exit way into my apartment, wich happens quite often, as often the these neighbors make sarcastic comments and I don't want to talk to them. I opened the door to see what the fuss was about and she was there, I closed my door and shook my head.
I have pictures to prove where the gravel landed and I will post them later on tonight and bump this entry every day for months on end.
In fact (Kathy Brenner 309-Meadobrook Circle) walked out of her apartment and knocked on 307 door making some sarcastic comment about me as I keyed into my apartment, in between the two. We don't care if 309's duaghter is pregnant, abort it or practice safe sex,, please. I'm, female and couldn't possible be the father, no compassion for them, they should confront the father, fucking welfare whores. They can't take out their issues on me, and I'm not thier fucking freind, never have been, and not interested. We're not interested in what 309 has to say, in her decoy and denial.
We suspect 307 of using drugs.
In fact, when I was on the phone with a friend of mine, complaining about neigbors making sarcastic comments and their bad behavior after I was keyed into my apartment, the cops were called on me in my own home when I was on the phone, venting, it was after nightfall, the management office was closed, and I had the worst case of vertigo. There WAS NO, verbal or physical confrontation between me the management and anyone else last Monday or Tuesday, I went to sleep with an awful case of vertigo and barely left home.
I spoke to the coppers and now the management are accusing me of making threats to them and a few neigbors, as that indeed is another LIE, as there was no such confrontation, I was in my home, as 309 (Kathy Brenner) made a sarcastic comment on my way in, as I ignored it, and went inside. The management office was not open in the evening and it was after nightfall, as I've had no contact with Meadobrook staff, even putting a note on my door refusing an exterminator visit earlier this month, as the vertigo set in.
In FACT, every time I pay rent and have any contact with management I have a TAPE RECORDER in my pocket, on play and record to prove who said what. I'll be more than happy to give any tapes to the police and prove MEADOBROOK CIRCLE NEW PALTZ, NY obnoxious behavior and lying. in fact, the management use a few of their buddy tenets and others and have made threats towards ME.
Booh, fucking hoo,
In fact, I've been the victim of senseless violence (Charles Bridge-whom is a level three sex offender, stranger to me, Timothy Cannon, Melanie Bussells I've never been the victim of such violence before) during the last few years due in part to bad management and their bad associations, conspiracies and agendas.
WHY are Meadobrook Circles, New Paltz, NY Management and staff lying, because the truth hurts and DRUGS suck, as Meadobrook circle, New Paltz, NY superintendent, a few of their staff, and a few moronic tennets were busted for the sale and the dealing of cocaine just last month, with weapons, it made the local news as this is a statement of FACT. Keep in mind that it is MEADOBROOK CIRCLE, NEW PALTZ, NY's staff whom are dealing drugs, making threats towards innocent tenets, harassing people ect, whom are not "buyers" or playing there game as a decoy for what THEY do..In fact ELI C. ERAZO whom lived (past tense) at 512 Meadobrook Circle, New Paltz, NY WAS the superintendent as he was caught in possession, and illegal distribution of cocaine and marijuana (one on a DWI in late OCTOBER), the MEADOBROOK management and staff and a few others ARE really that self destructive and do that to themselves. In fact, I've sent out a few HUD complaints earlier this week :
FROM THE TIMES HERALD RECORD: NEW PALTZ — After a six-month investigation, an Ulster anti-narcotics team arrested five people trafficking drugs, police said Saturday.
When they got several complaints about drug sales in the Town and Village of New Paltz, the team known by its acronym, URGENT, and New Paltz police started an investigation in which suspects sold drugs to undercover cops, officials said.
On Friday, the officers raided two homes on Meadowbrook Circle and seized 64 grams of cocaine, marijuana, drug records, handgun ammunition, and drug packaging material, police said.

This is a true scenario:
*I OVER paid my rent in ( OVERCHARGE in rent-where I currently live) 2002, and NEVER got a refund. I've always paid my rent.
* A cycle for painting (painting my apartment) is an issue here, as tenet landlord relationships are often adversarial. It does NOT clarify in my lease nor tenant handbook that tenets have to PAY out of POCKET for painting cycle cost, routine every four years.. In the fact that I over paid my rent, why is that $ not recovered or pro rated towards such as security.
*I've have not seen the interest on my security deposit since 2003.
*If the tenant is manipulated to pay for painting costs out of pocket (embezzlement, extortion, via management?), the tenets they should be able to choose there own contractor. Since said painting contractor used to be my neighbor in 1999, 2000, 2001 (at a different residence) and put a condom on my doorknob, he is not allowed in my rental, or near me.
*Also the same contractor (Tony Velequez) built the storm door backwards with no outside lock or key, and did a horrible job on the painting of my bathroom before I moved in.
*Velequez was being evicted in 2000/01 at my former residence,at the time the landlord re considered for Tony, however, I saw the Sheriffs department deliver the eviction notice. I simply got fed up with living at 40 North Chestnut (next door to him, and the noisy shit talking in front of my door and in the hallway) and didn't renew my lease and moved across the street after OVERPAYING my rent at 40 N. Chestnut.
*Said tennet does not have a contract with said painting contractor, just a lease with a management company.
*On a 4 year painting cycle, I signed something in 2006 saying I refused the painting cycle, dislocated knee at the time from late '05, (wrote a journal entry about it and everything) and I shouldn't be bothered until the next 4 year painting cycle.
*This is not a mandated not smoking apartment complex (like i would live here if it was?)
*Water sealing is/ should be routine maintenance wear sinks, and water usage occurs. Not really a big deal for me. The management blames the tennents, because they are cheap and greedy.
*Of course the unbelievable amount of gossip as complete strangers are mocking me, and making homophobic comments close to where I live, enough that hate crimes have perpetuated against me, as those people have been undercharged including sex offenders and jealous squatters. I have every right to defend myself, and sue, and that's quite tame for the way we feel right now.
*That attack on me via Timothy Cannon that I briefly mentioned, um, the same day that some other douche that attacked me ( JULY 2008-Charles Bridge-a stranger to me-http://criminaljustice.state.ny.us/cgi/internet/nsor/fortecgi?serviceName=WebNSOR&templateName=detail.htm&requestingHandler=WebNSORDetailHandler&ID=460981298) had to have his picture taken for his level 3 sex offender registry.
*Crimes this management has committed towards me: *Turning off my water January 2009 while I was taking a shower, causing my toilet to overflow as that is NOT my fault, and that can cause water damage, stress, just one day after I was discharged from hospital. There was NO water in my apartment that day, as I patiently waited for the water to be turned back on.
*Walking into the apartment (superintendent Erazo) without a work order after I took a shower and left my house, intentionally, no consent, a year to the date of a friend of mines funeral.(9/11/08)
*My door was found opened after a night out in December of 2007, just two days before X-mas, I walked into my apartment ducking as if I had been burglarized. Not sure if I didn't lock my door, or if the super went in there and abused the privilege of the master key.
This is illegal for landlords/management do to to lease bearing rent paying tenets.
*Let's open up the books on the management and the contractor and let them prove they are not fraudulent, out of pocket costs for the tenet goes where? In there pocket. I OVERPAID my rent via being OVERCHARGED my rent, I hardly noticed until they clarified clerical errors of there own.
*You break it, you bought it, if I have to sue, at the very least, anyone in my apartment without supervision can not be here, including the superintendent.
*Anything they have already stolen goes into a huge lawsuit including medical bills, for permanent scar on my forehead (20 stitches- Snug's Harbor 38 main str. new paltz, ny), including their intimidation and threats, punitive damages.
*I just want my money back, my lawyer (deuce) is checking for any embezzlement vs. HUD LAW, and also EOH/FAIR HOUSING states equal opportunity for gays, otherwise I can't stand the criminal mischief around here, find something else to
do. What? It's on..
*I'll pay $200.00 to deuce and the management will lose more than they can possibly gain from exploiting me, since they owe me money.
*Trying to criminalize me over something that is NOT a matter of my ethics but a denial on others part, this is a civil court matter and they provoked it, in their lack of ethics and illegal behavior.
*In January 1st 2009 (New Years Day-a federal holiday), same day I was in the hospital for injuries via a drug addicted squatter attacking me, the management where I live wrote a note saying I would have to pay the "market rate" of rent if I didn't re certify. Of course I been living here for over 7 years, re certify and renewed every year (I'm not a noob) as the management put the cart before the horse, before they sent me a scheduled appointment for rectification. Another unsuccessful attempt (from the management) to embezzle low income people. Of course it worked out, I don't have the pay the market rate, but I resent the obnoxious attitude, drama, at the most inopportune times.
*Whatever I comply to, does not guarantee my privacy, safety or stability, why should I commit to this crap?
Extortion, price gouging and embezzlement will NOT be tolerated.
*Constant harassment from neigbors whom make sarcastic comments and some whom are violent 307 (Melanie Bussel-kicking gravel at me, NOV. 2006) and 309 (Kathy Brenner) as I can't take the harassment and lying, plus I hear every word they say through the walls every day and it's horrifying. When they don't work, they pick fights, I'm creative.
*Kathy Brenner (309 Meadobrook Circle) has a tendency to pick fights with neigbors as there has been a high transition and turnover rate of tenets living next door to her in the 7 1/2 years I've lived here.
Even the tenet whom lived in my apartment before ME, transferred to another apartment to avoid 309, and anyone whose lived in 31o has been a victim of Brenners harassment including my friends Shepard and Mellissa whom are good people, and were forced to evacuate MEADOBROOK due to this awful neighbor, ask them.
307 (Melanie Bussell) and 309 (Kathy Brenner) MEADOBROOK CIRCLE, New Paltz, NY are guilty slander, defamation of character, harassment and bad management.
Get rid of these coke heads and their illegal tactics, it would be in every current and potential
tenets best interest.
Lastly, Eli C. Erazo (ex- superintendent) is NOT and WAS NOT the "landlord" (using words in the wrong metaphoric sense of the word, over rating him) and even if he was, his activities would still be illegal. You would either have to be born yesterday, just crawled from underneath a rock, be retarded, have zero credibility and experience in renting or just flat out lying to not know tenet rights, or your own rights and it better not be any blatant double standards vs. my rights as an American citizen. Eli C. Erazo and NONE of these douches in question, are simply NOT musicians, nor, booking agents/ promoters and they are NO ONE in any genre of music with zero credibility or experience in any musical field. In reality, this paranoid douchenozzle and his psychotic friends are just a bunch of cocaine addicts and crack heads, and Erazo's drug buyers are trying to intimidate and bully people whom don't use, instead of ending this bullying game, they don't see it as a deterrent from their behavior.
Lastly, I don't drugs, and I have right to live in a drug free zone..

EVILE ANNOUNCE NEW BASSIST



UK thrash band EVILE have announced a new bassist replacing the late Mike Alexander whom passed 10/5/2009 while the band was on tour in Sweden..














FROM EVILE:


"This has been one of the most bizarre and surreal tasks we've ever had to undertake. It isn't like Mike has decided to leave the band and we're simply finding a new bass player. He was taken from us, and we were forced to replace him. In effect, we had to look for a new Mike, but that would never happen. He was one of a kind, and we'll never forget him.

"We had hundreds upon hundreds of emails from bass players from around the world (though we can only realistically have a bassist from the U.K.), and we want to thank everyone for taking the time out to contact us, and the people who came to jam with us.

"We only had a certain amount of time to actually audition/jam with bass players before the upcoming tours, to get time in for rehearsing the songs, getting visas sorted etc.

"Our new bass player goes by the name Joel Graham. He's an excellent, experienced bass player, and a really nice guy.

"We'd all appreciate it if you gave him a warm welcome to the band, as this must be a bizarre situation for him to be in also.

"We'll be getting some photos taken with him soon so you can see us with Joel. We just wanted to get the news out there that we have a new bassist, and that we thank each and every person for auditioning. Mike would be honoured at the amount of respect and admiration you expressed to us through contacting us."

EVILE is set to kick off a headlining European tour in January. The "Infecting Nations" trek will start with a run of U.K. shows before the band heads off to mainland Europe. Joining EVILE on the tour will be American thrashers WARBRINGER and Israel's THE FADING.
