If any of you out there are regular readers (I know; I flatter myself, right?) I want to tell you that this site will no longer be updated on Saturdays and Sundays. Updates will only happen Monday-Friday. So, yeah, that’s that.
Fridays Random Thoughts:
-Why do so many people bag on Pitchfork yet read it everyday? Is it to make sure you hate it? What a dumb way to be. (For the record, I like Pitchfork. Its convenient, updated with ridiculous regularity and has a massive archive that provides hours of reading. Yeah, I said it. Deal.)
-When is the bottom going to fall out of the New Wave resurgence? Admiration is one thing but this, now years-long, race to the bottom of the bargain bin is getting ridiculous. Bands: hang up your jumpsuits, leg warmers, eyeliner and Aqua Net. Stop watching bootleg videos of The Cure and write some fucking songs already.
-Anyone read Alternative Press lately? I hadn’t in a couple of years but picked up an issue this week. Holy shit! Mall Punk is HUGE. Yeah, I knew but had, thus far, been spared 50 pages of full-color,full-page advertisements for such meaningless acts as The Tossers, Relient K, and Anberlin. Add this to several pages of “buyers guide” advertorials and it’s no wonder kids think Hot Topic is a legitimate cultural outlet.
Well, enough bitching from me. Enjoy your weekend. Here’s some stuff to listen to.
