Make 'em say UGHH
First thought upon hearing the news that Madam "Quest" Walder is closing down the UGHH store in Boston + UGHH.com in its entirely: that store + website still exist?
Second thought: is this karma for the UGHH webstore using RealAudio snippets back in the day and/or the forum spawning 4 eLeMeNtZ survivalist retards like Jaz, AC Tha Program Director, and Wicked22?
Third thought: ain't gonna lie, I did cop a record from the webstore in 2003 - the 7" of Anti-Matter by King Geedorah & Mr. Fantastik. Best DOOM song which ain't on Operation Doomsday, IMHO.
Third thought: Walder still owes me a cheque for my chronicle of the Filipino Frank vs. Immortal Technique beef which spiraled from the UGHH forum to the Fat Beats NYC store.
Fourth thought: my own personal favourite UGHH forum moment was when that Je$$ $antana lass who pretended to be Paul Castellano's granddaughter got exposed as the obese daughter of a Rodney Dangerfield impersonator from Rockville, Maryland.
Fifth thought: quick, someone find the thread where Chuck Wilson from Babygrande Records got busted sock-puppeting his own releases under the alias of JEDI MIND TRICKS FAN before Walder vapourises the forums.
Sixth thought: at least that's one less message board Gentle Jones can spam with his terrible music in 2017.
