you're probably joking, but that's still incredibly out of line to (even jokingly) threatening to kill a group of people, especially since you also did it in another thread as well.

Was anyone else really offended by that?

Besides, actual mass murderers usually fit the "quiet loner" profile, as opposed to "loud drunkard".

I have to be honest, yeah, I thought it was in bad taste.

what offends some people doesn't offend others. something that might offend you might not offend me, but we'd still handle it if that day were to ever come.

The good news for GAF is that Kevin Shields won't be a difficult target to miss.

"You Made Me Realize" was 27 minutes long (10:01 to 10:28) and destructive. I only saw one person cry, but I was surprised how many people around me where grimacing and covering their ears even with the earplugs in. I took them out for the Loveless songs and no more than 40% of "Realize," and today's ringing is dull. Really, my body suffered more than my ears did--I left with a few toothaches and feeling just kinda numb and stingy, all over the place. It was like an 747 was parked up on the stage with the engines blasting at us at full power. Not the most exciting show that I've seen, and the band wasn't at all on the stage for long enough (given both the cost of the show and the fact that there are hardly any of these shows happening), but I had a good-ass time. "I Only Said" and "To Here Knows When" were spectacular, as was "Thorn."

Are you still in Chicago? If so, U2popscumbo would want me to punch you in the face.

Glad you had a good-ass time at the show, I think it's pretty cool that you got to see them and if I did not have my head lodged up my ass, I'd have been there, too.

Oops. I don't even remember making that post. Was I joking?

I never joke about my work, 007.

The ghost of Virginia Woolf is calling me back to bed for round two.

I've had a good (read: bad) week. Everything's coming up roses. I can smell the river. Anybody got any stones?

I won't disrupt the thread anymore. Continue discussing My Bloody Valentine please. Thanks.

I am very intrigued by MBV and the "Loveless" album (I listen to it about once a year and am surprised by how much I like it each time), but I don't think I would have enjoyed being at that show.

I don't like bleeding from the ears.

Any chance of them popping by to Australia, by the way?
