Brutality and Chuckles

The musings of a 21st century renaissance man...named Geoff Garlock.
My grade school library had a book on ghosts that had this picture in it. This man and his wife had gone to the cemetery to visit her mothers grave. She took a photo of her husband and her dead mother appeared in the back seat in the photo. This photo freaked out 10 year old Geoff an insane amount and yet most times I was in the library I found the book and stared at the photo. I also started reading Steven King books around this time and saw “Halloween” and had to wait until my eyes adjusted in the dark every night when I went to bed, to make sure Michael Myers wasn’t in my room. “Halloween” continues to be my favorite movie.  Well that all sums me up in a nutshell. This is a good time of year.

Intense political discussion on Facebook led me to think about the exhausting aspects of punk and hardcore “fests” and the More Than Music Fest in Columbus. So I typed in my old bands name and More than Music and low and behold. A video of when we played in 2000. Now be forewarned. When the title of the video says (Messy)..it is messy.

Orchid always played on the floor. We hated playing on stages. A combination of the idea of we are all one and we are no different from you ideals AND I think we were all kind of scared of being on a stage by our lonesome. That second half is also why I played with my back to the audience. Both to protect my gear and because of a LOT of fear on my end.

The venue for More Than Music was a HUGE hall with a giant stage. So to combat that, we invited anyone who wanted to, to come up on the stage. Both a great and awful idea. It was a mess, and even more so than usual, people pushing me out of the way and stepping on my cords and pushing my amp to get to our singer. Such is the way. But glad this show was documented.

Also if I remember correctly, someone from a band we were with (i shall not name names) really wanted to “tar and feather” Bright Eyes who were also playing that show. Just because we thought he kind of sucked. Luckily that did not come to fruition. It would have been a bad scene.

Well that was a fun procrastination from doing stuff I should be doing. Much like all of the internet. And we come full circle.

The other day a student asked me what my favorite sketch was. I said “The Philosophers Football Match” by Monty Python. Upon further reflection I have realized that “Mr. Belevedere Fan Club” might be my favorite sketch ever. Weird reference, long dark speeches, strange specifics, straight man who goes along with the insanity, Tom hanks and a stupid ending. And I talk about it too much in sketch notes. Or not enough.
