Like every other old hardcore dude, I have a special place in my heart reserved for the one and only JUDGE. I am non-ironically super stoked that I’ve had the chance to do three Judge-related posts on SYWH, and that all of them came out as well as they did. In case you missed them:
SCENE GIRL REVIEWS “NEW YORK CREW” 7″
This was one of the first successful posts on SYWH, from way back in 2009. Although people seem to have a hard time believing it, this post was actually written by a 20 year-old girl. I told her a little bit about the band and why people love them, but she honestly had no clue who they were and came up with all those jokes herself. It made people really mad, and I still think it’s hilarious.
JUDGE RESPONDS TO SCENE GIRL REVIEWS
The only thing more funny than all the butthurt comments on the first post was when someone who was IN Judge got in touch with me and was not at all butthurt (the “someone” was Lars Weiss, also of Side By Side. Uppercut, and more). My mind was 100% blown, because I could hardly have scripted a better followup than this!
LARS WEISS REVIEWS ADTR, ATTACK ATTACK, AND MORE
Since Lars seemed like a chill bro who wasn’t blinded by oldness, I thought it would be cool to get his thoughts on some current music. It came out really, really well and is to this day one of my favorite posts ever on SYWH.
Big ups to Lars for taking the time to do these and making the 14 year-old NYHC fanboy version of me explode with excitement!
