Well in that case, who knows? Maybe you'll get a situation like Cass had where only 50+ people show up.

Wow. Just when you think you know someone...

Don't judge me. We all reacted strangely to 9/11.

I don't know Laz, I'm sure I'll be told that this is the internetz and not to be so PC but that's probably a little offensive.

I'm pretty sure that term isn't considered derogatory, and is arguably the "preferred nomenclature"? Although that would usually be the verb, not the noun.

I mean, compared to some of the stuff you get called around here...

Yeah, but, I'm an asshole and deserve whatever I get.

Also, I cannot fall asleep.

I have a hard time believing it won't be awesome. I was completely blindsided by this news, in a really good way.

I'm jealous, Peefer. They've yet to come here.

On a side note, I've seemed to find myself in the mood to listen to songs from Romance is Boring while running or doing cardio lately.

The album remains really good. I've drifted very, very far afield of (I'm sorry, I don't want or mean to sound reductive, here) "typical indie" music, over the course of the last few years, and I have tended to enjoy new albums from bands I really like(d) from those circles less and less...but the songs on here are just really fucking strong, to my ears. I am able to come back to this again and again with no strong reservations. So good.

I still think it's too long, still think it's their least accomplished ALBUM, and I also think the mastering is faceless and ugly (I mean, my ears physically hurt if I listen to this entire thing on headphones), but the songs are fucking spectacular. Jesus. Nearly every single one of them. One of my complaints of this LP as, you know, an LP is that there's just too much of a good thing; I'm spent, by the time it's over. Cannot wait for the Chicago show, in a few weeks. Should be good fun.

This isn't one of those, "Well, I shouldn't like this, but I do...therefore, it's GREAT!" kind of things, either. Far from it. I hope it doesn't sound or seem that way. I'm just saying that I am sort of surprised that the dude who's spending Record Store Day seeing two Puffy Areolas shows and a White Mystery in-store is also a dude who's all over this. Really refreshing.

it's been on regular rotation since i bought it. dominates my top 25 on itunes as well.

just a shame no one seems to have even heard of it in this country. or they're too busy fapping to Contra.

Cobbler, despite how it seems on this forum, they're not remotely popular here either.
