Ha! I knew it was a reference to something, but didn't feel like going along/had no idea that it was this. Wow. To what has Interference come...?

I'm liking these guys more and more and more. Glad you had a good time, Shouter. Here's a picture to mire you in your regrets:



Take it away, Laz.

I wouldn't mind putting her paws on my recorder, if you get my double meaning.

I don't even want to get started on how hot that picture of that woman is. Wow! On a more serious note, I do feel a bit "off" going on and talking about how attractive the girls are, because that angle unfortunately comes up again and again and again, when discussing any band with a look-at-able woman in the lineup--when viewed in the continuum of music journalism/general discourse, it's pretty insulting and reductive.

At the same time, of course, I think that the vast majority of the regular posters in this thread--whether LC! supporters or detractors, and including myself--have risen above that particular fray, instead focusing almost exclusively on the merits of the music. I mean, there's of course nothing wrong with finding Aleks disarmingly gorgeous. Such is life. Some people are hot, and that's that. There's absolutely nothing wrong with noticing it, pointing it out, or, you know, having a good time with yourself while thinking about it.

I just get a bit self-conscious, because, generally speaking, the focus too often falls on looks, with female performers. See: Halle Berry winning an Oscar only for showing her tits, and literally all of the mainstream discourse focusing on/not having any problem with how much the Oscar was deserved specifically because she was willing to "bare it all for the art/the 99% male population of US film critics."

Sorry. I know that that's not quite relevant to our briefly mucking about, in here, but I figure it's worth thinking about. And, of course, I still want her (or Ellen!). Badly.

I was hoping you'd go the route of "I wouldn't mind Hot Cross-ing her Buns, so to speak."

IYS, I think we all rise above it with any of the female musicians we like. Do I think Annie Clark, Lisa Lobsinger, Chan Marshall, Leslie Feist, etc. are hot? Of course. Ridiculously so. But I still appreciate their art because it's just plain good. The hotness is just a nice bonus. These are genuinely talented women who just happen to make me go from six to midnight.

In all the pictures I've seen of Los Camp! there is one girl who is clearly the best looking. If I remember, she's brunette. And small. I don't know which is which or who is who but, yeah.

Annnnnnyways...that "You! Me! Dancing!" is quite a song, eh?

GAF, we appear to have the same taste in women. Women who have reached the age of consent, at least.



Harriet = winner winner chicken dinner. Aleks = close (very close) second.


And I might be in the minority here, but I like Beautiful more thanYoungster.

Nothing like the latest incident in a completely fucked up "relationship" to make you love Los Camps! even more. Awesome!
