Listening Post

I've got three shows coming up, thanks almost entirely to my really wonderful girlfriend and her connections: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Fall Out Boy, and these guys, all at the Wiltern here in L.A.

Apparently, for this video, somebody said, "We really wanna make Hayley Williams look like Rooney Mara's interpretation of Lisbeth Salander." Also, for some reason I just noticed a couple of days ago how fucking incredible the drumming is on this track.

I posted this as an audio clip last month, but here's the video for Paramore's Now.

Fall Out Boy? What are you? A 14 year old girl.
BRMC though, I am cool with that.

Are you cool with that? Good, because God knows I want to make sure my tastes line up with the musical sensibilities of anonymous internet fucksticks. I'll cancel my Fall Out Boy plans immediately, at your implied suggestion, of course, and because the last thing I'd want to do is feel inadequate in the face of someone so obviously a musical trendsetter. Are you sure you wouldn't like to give me your name and e-mail address so I can run any future bands I might happen to feel like I might start liking your way so I can make sure they meet with your approval?

Run along, obnoxious little cunt.

Of course you shouldn't and don't give a shit what some random person on the internet thinks of your taste in music, but that doesn't change the fact that the only other dudes aged 40+ at that concert were probably chaperoning their daughters.

Anyways, I love your writing and will keep my opinions on your questionable music taste to myself.

Signed, some obnoxious little cunt on the internet.

Eh, I like Fall Out Boy. Sue me.
