I was going though some old stuff and came across an AIM conversation I had with a member of “Salty the Pocket Knife” – A band that has Screech (aka Dustin Diamond) in it.
Sure, I’m lame, I like Saved by the Bell – but ya’ know what?
Crash and burn motherfucker. Enjoy. (for those of you that don’t know – I’m Freehaiti)
FreeHaiti: Why did you name your band salty the pocket knife? Saltythepocket: we were high on drugs FreeHaiti: Good drugs? Or are you just potheads? Saltythepocket: just kidding FreeHaiti: ok FreeHaiti: I wasn't Saltythepocket: what does the name mean to you? FreeHaiti: Dumb-assed indie-wannabe shit. And you? Saltythepocket: selective listeners only. All others move to haiti FreeHaiti: So are you playing regularly? Saltythepocket: what do you care FreeHaiti: No disrespect, I just am not a fan of the name Saltythepocket: and when did you first hear about us? FreeHaiti: Honestly, after the VH-1 thing.

Saltythepocket: the second time Saltythepocket: you heard it Saltythepocket: you only needed to hear it once FreeHaiti: Are you trying to suggest that the name is memorable? Saltythepocket: you never forgot it because it was so Dumb-assed indie-wannabe Saltythepocket: i am Saltythepocket: and it is' Saltythepocket: and you know it Saltythepocket: thank you FreeHaiti: Yeah, but I didn't forget that 'Carrot Top' was named 'Carrot Top' either Saltythepocket: and your point?
