A quick welcome from Sean

Hey friends! Sean here. I am not a website designer or developer.

One time, I sent Casey’s laptop to a “Nigerian Prince” scammer cause I couldn’t suss out a fake Paypal email.

 

One time, I put one of UTR’s tunes on Spotify without audio.

 

One time, I somehow put a VERY personal photo of myself on one of the bands streaming platforms when changing the band’s press picture.

 

I’m a fuck-up.

 

We are all fuck-ups, I think.


The guys and I tried to build an online thing.


A thing that could somehow support Under The Rug (as a band and a household),


while functioning as a social media alternative,

and as art,

and as a place to be friends.


Something we feel good about making


and something that you think is worth giving us a monthly coffee for.


But, like…I didn’t know how to make the little floating question mark thingy in the bottom of your screen. I had to watch a bunch of dumb, boring videos to figure that one stupid thing out. And the site is full of those things!


Meanwhile, Casey is locked in the doodle dungeon for the whole month and Brendan is pulling his hair out trying to integrate the yaddadada to the blippydippy so the feed works right or whatever.


Like I said, not website guys. So I hope you love it cause I think it’s pretty rad for some band kids in a mobile home spending a couple months using every single collective brain cell.


ANYWAY, after working for many nights…


(depicted by selfies that Brendan took on my phone throughout the work week)


…red-eyed,

computer glared,

brain numbing,

grueling,

drooling,

sweat-stained,

neck pained,

like-pushing-a-rock-up-a-hill nights…

 

I want to welcome you to the thing!

 

The Secret Hideout, if you will.

 

Please, explore and chat and give us any suggestions you may have.

 

This really should’ve been at the beginning, but, eh, I can do whatever I want here. YA HEAR THAT ZUCKERBERG?!

 

THANK YOU, HOLY SHIT,  THANK YOU!

 

I’ve always felt a little embarrassed – or scared, maybe – to ask for money for our art, but lately, the love has been exponentially pouring in and now, more than ever, it seems like Under The Rug does something for a lot of folks. Enough to where this subscription might be an investment for the future for some. I get it, Under The Rug has done a lot for me, too. Even through all my fuck-ups.

 

So, I, Sean, promise to keep creating in Under The Rug as long as you amazing folks want me to and I’ll be HAPPY AS FUCK to do it.

 

Thank you times a billion. I can’t wait to get closer to each one of you.

 

Try leaving a comment so we know this rickety-scaffolding-tower-of-a-website cranks.

TWD,
Sean (& the boys)

I scammed a scammer a couple of years ago. He told me he wanted me to be his wife and move abroad with him. “Well…” I replied, “this was meant to be because I just inherited a bunch of money and I want to relocate so yes! Please do start house hunting and send me some videos of the places.”

I gave him my requirements – indoor and outdoor pool (obviously), a tennis court, room for chickens and other livestock… Etc, etc.

The videos started coming but the mansions just weren’t cutting it. I have high standards.

Eventually, he snapped and told me off for wasting his time. I ignored the outbursts. He got over it fairly quickly but I got bored and blocked him.

Here’s to hoping it was the same douchebag scammer. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Thank you for doing all of this for all of us. ๐Ÿ’›๐ŸŒปโ˜ ๏ธ

Welp…. I woke up just FIRED UP! I love everything about this. The band, about the fans, about life and all that the future holds for the first time in a long time. Thank you UTR for having me on the chat yesterday. You have earned the right to ask for money for your hard work, and I think I speak for EVERYONE here when I say that you have earned it. Again… Let me know what Sarah and I can do to help get y’all where you are going!

With that being said… What’s up Rats? Who is here? Let’s party!

I agree . Definitely they’ve earned it! We have this really special thing going on here among Under the Rug and their rat family… it’s a SPIRITUAL connection and BOND we have with one another. It’s so therapeutic, uplifting, loving , healing and kind. Imagine the whole world like that?

I’m a little astounded. I took a chance when I seen the free cd offer and opted to buy the other two. I love giving new artists a chance with my senses. You are the first in a long while to capture my attention in this way. I hear so many of my past musical heroes in your music and yet I’ve never heard anyone quite like you all. I love what you guys have put together here for your fans and I believe you are going to go extremely far in this Universe! Much love to you guys! Shelly
