When one thinks of local bands Seapony and Orca Team, machismo is usually one of the last words that is applied as an adjective. On a recent Facebox art show thread, Seapony guitarist Danny Rowland and Orca Team leader Leif Anders got into some sort of vague faux-tough guy virtual squabble. The conversation is copied below, but the real question is, which of these information superhighway supermen will win when it comes to actual fisticuffs?
Danny R.: will there be beer at this thing Derek Erdman: "there will be some beer at this thing." Danny R.: i'm not going then Danny R.: i know you saw that coming, but seriously, can you give me a reason to play metal guitar? Derek Erdman: SEAPHONY IS MORE LIKE IT Danny R.: to hell with seapony i'm talking about EASTER ISLAND Danny R.: i have a list of people that i want to fight i wonder if any of them will be there? Danny R.: a list of people i want to get beat up by Danny R.: i'll go dig up the list Danny R.: 1. Leif Anders Danny R.: 2. Dan Miles Danny R.: 3. Ian Brewer Danny R.: j/k about the brewester Leif Anders: I don't know. Might be a pretty even fight. Those quiet guys can hit hard. Danny R.: do you have any martial arts training? Danny R.: i'm a straight brawler Danny R.: i heard you been talking smack Leif Anders: Really? I hope not. I feel like I've been pretty respectful lately. Maybe not. Okay, you wanna get this thing goin'? We can step outside when I'm back in town. Danny R.: YES and you'd better put some socks on Leif Anders: You know I hate socks. Danny R.: And stop asking people how their name appears on their birth certificate Danny R.: That's weird Leif Anders: I'm just super curious. Leif Anders: Suzi might be Susanne for all I know. Danny R.: it's not appropriate Danny R.: what's YOUR real last name Danny R.: how does your name appear? Danny R.: Is Leif even your real name? Leif Anders: Yeah. But Anders isn't my real last name (mystery gasp)
Danny R.: i knew it wasn't Danny R.: so what is it i'm super curious Danny R.: Flanders Danny R.: Smith Leif Anders: It's inappropriate Daniel. Don't ask. Danny R.: Then don't ask Suzi Leif Anders: Too late. Leif Anders: It was actually Suzette. Fine taste in my opinion. Danny R.: GODDAMNIT Leif Anders: I can't even go to this event. I really want to though. I'll be out of town. Sorry Mr. Erdman. Danny R.: I can't go either then Danny R.: Plus there's gonna be a bunch of beer'ing going on. Danny R.: And as you know I'm in recovery Danny R.: Don't forget what I said about wearing socks Derek Erdman: Can I quote this thread on the Stranger blog? Leif Anders: Yes indeed. Derek Erdman: Danny? Danny R.: YES sorry I was talking about wrestling with my boss Danny R.: I thought Superfly Snooka died in the 80's Danny R.: i sure hope Leif is wearing a bow tie when i kick his ass Leif Anders: Don't get any of your wuss blood on my tux when I rupture your spleen. Danny R.: i'm going to strangle you with that damn thing Danny R.: and then put socks on your corpse Leif Anders: I'll only have socks on at my funeral. And in snow. Danny R.: WTF Leif Anders: And I'm totally going to through your shitty solid state amp off a freeway. Buy some tubes. Your girlfriend does. Danny R.: I want something I can smash your skull with you not worry about breaking some frilly ass tube Danny R.: speaking of throwing things off of a freeway - i called the cops on two suspicious non-transient guys walking down the off-ramp with matching roller suitcases Danny R.: if you throw my amp off a freeway you're going off with it Danny R.: i'm going home this is boring Leif Anders: When I'm done skinning you, I will use your face blubber as my new socks. I'll make ice skates out of your bones and teeth. I don't know how they will hold up because you are intensely weak. Leif Anders: Also, good call on the cop call for the suitcase transients. Leif Anders: Please don't die for a month. Ruben Mendez: Everyone on this thread are wimps. Except me. I am from the streets. I fight with chains. I give chains black eyes and I've put one or two chains in the hospital. Leif Anders: Just let Daniel and I earn some suburban street cred. We have to start somewhere. Danny R.: The only wimps on this thread are Derek Erdman and Ruben Mendez and Leaf Flanders and me Danny R.: I'll die whenever I feel like it Leaf Danny R.: I'm from Oklahoma goddamnit Leif Anders: Even worse. Leif Anders: B T Dub. I was Oklahoma City yesterday and I thought it was pretty cool. A guy told me that it was like the third largest city in the US which I didn't believe. On a quick wiki check it was around the 40th largest city.
