    You also worked out how to use the Copy & Paste functions on your PC. Great.

    Shouldn’t the question be “you do know how to seperate the text you just copied and pasted from other sites into paragraphs, right?”

    They don’t normally make #1 websites so hard to find that you need congratulating on finding them.

    Congratulashions! You’ve just found the best gl0d stars post on the itnernet!

    An insider tipped me off to The Goldstars, veterans of the Chicago rock and roll scene who apparently got together as friends to simply play the music they loved. What brought them together was a mutual affection for the golden age of primitive rock n? roll as they worshiped the holy trinity of the Farfisa organ, the fuzzed-out guitar, and the wailing voices of American kids trying to sound like British kids trying to sound black.Chicago isn?t a foo-foo veggie burger eating town, Chicago loves the steak AND the sizzle, yet the Windy City has been starving for a meat-and-potatoes rock and roll band amongst the post-rock, punk, power pop and alt-country factions. The Goldstars are just the ticket. Sal is an ideal frontman, his white blues shout, his bass often held aloft, his mop of hair shaking, there is no doubt as to his sweaty commitment. To his right, Skipper mans the keyboards, which he has festooned with gold tinsel. Skipper frequently serves as the emcee, sometimes takes over the bass chores, but his keyboard contributions give every Goldstar tune the right amount of zip. To Sal?s left, filling in on guitar, stands Dag. This guitar virtuoso razzles and dazzles while pumping out the basic chords or concisely slicing up the crowd with a solo. Maintaining control while somehow still adding to the frenzy is the drummer, Goodtime. A band can?t truly rock without a great drummer and The Goldstars truly rock, so that gives you an idea of Goodtime?s skills. He not just the beat of the band, he?s the heart. The electricity of the Goldstars is no surprise when you study their pedigrees. Goodtime and Skipper are both members of Chicago?s most beloved party rock and roll band, The New Duncan Imperials, who have been entertaining thousands with their white trash sounds for years. Dag was last seen playing with Poi Dog Pondering & The Greenwoods. And Sal was hiding his (Gold)star qualities as the drummer for power pop titans, The Krinkles. The Goldstars are a four-man fun factory, tight as a drum, yet relaxed as can be, showing why the sounds of yesterday are worth playing today. The Goldstars recognize that a great song is a great song, and the only way to rock seriously is by not taking rock and roll too seriously.

    GOLDSTAR FUN FACTS! 1. Latest CD “Purple Girlfriend” was included on the following “Best Of” lists for 2006: Chicagoist.com, WFMU’s Three Chord Monte show, WORT’s Leopard Print Lounge show, WITR’s Whole Lotta Shakin’ show, WLUW’s Di from the Razor & Di Show, WMBR’s Aural Fixation show, WRTC’s Rock And Roll Pest Control show.2. Both albums “Gotta Get Out! ” & “Purple Girlfriend” made Chicago Sun-Times music critic Jim Derogatis?s top album list of 2003 & 20063. Supported many high profile acts such as: The Dirtbombs, Supersuckers, Los Straitjackets, Dick Dale, Mojo Nixon, Shadows Of Knight, The Romantics, Neanderthals, Sylvan Sylvan (New York Dolls), Blowfly, Plasticland, Hoodoo Gurus, Southern Culture On The Skids, The Paybacks, Andre Williams, The Horrors, Dash Rip Rock and more.4.

    Yes, I conducted a search for a subject, copied and pasted text without even reading the context or content, mangled the formatting so that no-one could ever possibly want to read it for themselves, and then wrote an inane and deliberately illiterate introduction…

    Please tell me you didn’t actually read it?

    Ha ha! The photo album is the best – to quote:

    i found of all o these pictures in a secret place on the internet and decided to share them with the world. some of them have never been seen anywhere which i think you will agree makes this the most exclusive and birlliant red dwarf website going, an d definitely better than andrew ellard’s fun time emporium

    This is like that fanfic we used to get on ATVRD where there wasn’t any paragraph breaks, and the sentences lasted all day.

    After careful consideration I think the pictures page is my favourite, for the captions and the repeated screenie. Comic timing in a website layout, there.

    Introduce a promotional price for the tickets and I’ll think about it.

    I’ve seen pictures and was very impressed.

    #94862

    I know this isn’t something you could orchestrate or anything, but the fact that most of the huge pictures on the site stop loading and break, leaving big, sad empty spaces, is a nice touch for extracting the urine from old fan pages like this.

    Also: omg u liek the TRD site to? I loooooooooove that Web siet it has rela fun games. It has Whinny te Poo hagnman, a mathcing game, draufts, and Teh Smeg Cube SMEG LOLOLOOOLOLLOL!1

    Exactly. April Fools is really about giving all those inept social outcasts an opportunity to feel better about themselves by obsessively pointing out all the April Fools gags.

    I never actually went through the site, since after the first page I just couldn’t force myself to explore another bad website. Now that I know it’s Seb’s, I kind of poked around. It’s pretty funny now that I know, but I would have been in sheer hell if I’d thought otherwise. Great job!

    There is a great cartoon, I think it might have been A Far Side one. Where an inventor works hard to make such an animal translation machine happen, and discovers that dogs are just going round saying “hey” a lot.
