"Concrete" is back in print Can't Post

My book is back in print! it's about $12.00 on amazon, a bargain when you consider the amount of money I blew on drugs to write it! and hookers, yo!

Sweet. I grabbed a new copy of this since my friend lost mine and I'm currently re-reading it.

Looking at it for the second time I am really overwhelmed at the drug use. I don't understand how you guys ever got anything done!

I guess the uppers back then actually worked...

On the next printing I think there should be review quotes from prongs.org members.

Don't get too excited he generally shows up when he has something to sell. Don't think he's ever shown up just to say "hey." Little disappointed by that but whatever!
Ok I'm an asshole sometimes! Frown (yes only some times for all you fuckers getting ready to reply "sometimes?"

Chris actually pops up here quite a bit to comment on things. And even if he has the occasional item to pitch, it's way better than the other band members that never bother to come on here. Besides, the stuff he pitches is always tasty.

Re: [chrisconnelly] "Concrete" is back in print [In reply to] Can't Post

Phildo?
I don't think so. There was a guy in here called Special Ed that would basically talk about the good old days when he hung out with Ministry, then he would bash whatever Al and Angie were up to now, then he would namedrop Chris or Trent Reznor or Ian McKaye. All rather incoherently.
Somebody speculated that he was Phildo, but it's unlikely. He never revealed his true identity, but he left around the time they announced the Fixed movie.

Alright for my own sake I just checked posts and you're right Chris doesn't just show up to sell shit! although the last 3 times he has appeared it's been to sell stuff. but you're right he does post random comments here and there. I take it back and have edited my earlier comment accordingly.

Special Ed is definitely Phildo, I know them both. After Special Ed. outed me as Angie I only thought it fair to out him as Phildo.

He was most likely an 'assistant' in the production area.

He did mention assisting on other albums by other artists in his heyday.

Either that or he was a tech guy.

I'm halfway convinced that he's our man Paul. Every time there's new Flowering Blight news, what he says usually has credibility.

Re: [chrisconnelly] "Concrete" is back in print [In reply to] Can't Post

No way he was Paul. He seemed way too incoherent at times and bizarre to fit the overwhelming impression of Paul that we get from all credible sources.

And if it was Paul having a ruse it wasn't a very funny one most of the time so I doubt it was him fucking with us. I think an engineer or someone in the ranks but on the sidelines is most likely.

He called everybody who had anything positive to say about the last 10 years of Ministry "Angie".

If it was Paul, I've lost a lot of respect for Paul.

i wish Chris talked more about Jim and the rest of Foetus.

I wonder if Raymond Watts was touring with KMFDM when they opened for Ministry....I wonder if Chris ever met Raymond!
