Meanwhile, God is undoing this nation and effecting all of your lives, with the moth that quietly eats the very fabric of your national garment. Radiohead is just such an event.
They also suck at grammar.

Think of the sorts of people who strive for attention. Is there a greater message at play there most of the time? Attention-getting is an end unto itself for Westboro.

That or they're assholes. Either way, there is no message.

I just watched the Foo Fighters' response to the picketers at their show in Kansas City last year.

I thought it was pretty funny.

What are they trying to accomplish? They're trying to get people so angry that they assault them. Then they sue whoever assaults them, because something like 20-25 percent of the WBC are lawyers.

They think doing all this crap is going to bring people to their religion, let alone religion in general? I just don't understand what they think they're trying to accomplish, or if they even know what they're trying to accomplish.
They're mentally ill.

Meanwhile, it's me + Arizona = near disaster again.

Silly me didn't realize it's spring break, and there's some stupid basketball tournament in Albuquerque, therefore every rental car company in the state is sold out. And I'm driving to Phoenix to see Radiohead. And my old car is unreliable.

After calling them all and having them laugh at me, like I'm the only idiot on the planet who isn't aware of spring breaks and basketball tournaments and how this affects the car rental market, I started calling them all again until somebody had a cancellation.

Jesus freaking Christ. Way to nearly give a girl a heart-attack.

Oh, and it looks like 90% of the hotels in Phoenix are also sold out.

Wtf. I guess the country isn't as bad off financially as we all thought since we're all on the go and stuff.

I ran across this Phil Selway quote in Q that I thought some of you fine folks would enjoy:

Doesn't it it finish by implying Pablo Honey is Return of the Jedi because it's cheesy? At least that's how I remember reading it many moons ago.

Friggin' Phoenix. It's probably 100 degrees there already too.

Yeah, I had picked out my winter uniform of jeans and boots to wear to the show before I realized I was f**ked in the head.

New Hope > Empire

OK Computer > The Bends

I had no idea people remembered New Hope purely for its explosions (that one, at the end).

The analogy is completely idiotic.

Selway should stick to drumming and maintaining his Mr. Clean dome.
