Thankfully it appears you will remain the only one not to use my life experiences at my expense.

...I hope

No problem. That and I don't think that mocking transsexuals is in any way funny.

Anyway, We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed is a tremendous album. Not a substandard track to be found.

Really? I thought we were mocking Cobbler.

And I think some would argue his original use of the term "ladyboy" was derogative.

And I find All Your Keyfabe Friends to be substandard.

For some reason I've never liked Beautiful, Doomed much. Song For the Other Kurt is one of my fav and most listened to Los Camp tracks though.

Well remember I am racist, homophobic, sexist and all the rest of it.

Every single "ladyboy" I met in Thailand referred to themselves as that and a number of the shows have the term "ladyboy" either in the title or in the description. The bars and surrounding streets in Patong and Chaweng are not the places for subtlety and political correctness.

Well, even if he did, hypothetically speaking, have some kind of an interaction with a transsexual, why would that be cause for mocking? There are plenty of people into that, and I don't really see it as abnormal or deviant in any way.

Documented Minor Emotional Breakdown is in my Top 5 LC! songs, easily. The title track in my Top 10. And Song For The Other Kurt is great, too.

And Miserabilia obviously has some big fans who would count it among their best.

Ok let's just do this:

1. This Is A Flag. There Is No Wind.
2. Documented Minor Emotional Breakdown #1
3. Death To Los Campesinos!
4. Don't Tell Me To Do The Maths
5. We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed
6. We Are All Accelerated Readers
7. In Media Res
8. By Your Hand
9. Straight In At 101
10. Hello Sadness


If the verses of Black Bird, Dark Slope were as good as Kim's bridge and chorus, it would easily get on here. I find it hard to divide the Youngster songs; they're all pretty damned fantastic. Could easily have put Sweet Dreams and You Me Dancing on too.

Cobbler, I spent a few months in Malaysia, and that seemed to be the official term there as well.

I think it's safe to say that, judging by what we know of Cobbler from interference, he wasn't "into that" or looking for said interaction. If he was honestly like "hey guys, I wanted to see what it was like to hook up with a transsexual/transvestite/etc." I don't think he would be mocked as a deviant, certainly not by me. Obviously we tend don't make those kind of serious life confessions here but I'm just saying hypothetically.

The Sea Is a Good Place to Think About the Future would probably be my #1.

I'm guessing most of you missed this, but I happened to check the website and discovered they released a free new track for download a couple months ago:

Los Campesinos! Tiptoe Through The True Bits Download

It's long and has some nice horn work. Probably better than a handful of tracks on Hello Sadness.

Nice find, Laz.

I'll give it a proper listen when I'm back in the car.

My thoughts. Thanks for the link.

Like most LC! songs it's really great when the music kicks in. Wish that bit towards the end with the sea of horns went for a bit longer.
