You bastard; I was going to ask that question.

That's a great reference, who originally said that?

Fuck, I can't remember. That was a classic.

Wasn't it someone who writes for the main Interference website, like reviews?

Anu, maybe?

Yeah, one of the people who writes reviews for the front page.

I've always found it strange how few of those people actually interact on the forums, which sorta defeats the entire point doesn't it? Then again, if they all acted like we experienced with The Suburbs, it's probably for the best.

Here is the post in question:

Arcade Fire new stuff 2010

Even got busted by a mod for it.


Haha, I forgot I wrote a song about the "incident":

SNARK II (MOLEHILLS BEYOND MOUNTAINS)

I heard Win singing and I just had to stop
Skip these pretentious songs and just start to mock
These days my life, I feel it has no purpose
I'd rather be an intellectual tortoise

On hater indie sites the critics' knives shine
They're calling at me, come agree with your kind
Sometimes I wonder if my taste missed the mark
Oh can I ever get away from the snark?
Living with the snark
Shots in the dark rise like molehills beyond mountains
And there's no point in sight
I need more backup, someone rationalize

We took our copies to the used CD store
And told the cashier The Suburbs was a bore
We shield our eyes from the indie kid's glare
We run away, but we don't know where

On Pitchfork river, the new review shines
They're screaming at us, we don't pay them no mind
Sometimes I wonder if my taste missed the mark
Oh will I ever get away from the snark?
Living with the snark
Shots in the dark rise like molehills beyond mountains
And there's no point in sight
I need more backup, someone rationalize

They saw me posting and they told me to stop
Quit these obnoxious thoughts, this album's no flop
Sometimes I wonder if my head's in the dark
Why can't I ever get away from the snark?
Living with the snark
Shots in the dark rise like molehills beyond mountains
And there's no point in sight
I need more backup, someone rationalize

"New stuff 2010"? That makes you laugh?

Man, comedians must love audience members like you.

Really? I feel like I should have tried to put "cock" in there somewhere, like instead of "mock" or "clock".

I think I'm just hung up on the inspired rhyming of purpose and tortoise, especially given the context of the 'incident.'

It's sad that I was able to rhyme "tortoise" better than Boner could.

It'd be pretty awesome to be so small-minded that I could easily dismiss people who like something I don't as pretending to like it. I wouldn't have to trouble myself with complicated issues. Life would be so simple.
