Performances are subjective, so no delusion is necessary.
Delusion is necessary to drool over that performance, subjective or not.

It was so bad that only the most hyperbolic reactions are reasonable.

Of course it does, I'm not really capable of typing something that makes no sense. I sometimes try to type nonsensical items, and they still end up making sense. My cross to bear, brazu.

I was just glad to see Meg back on stage.

I really cannot understand why people get surprised when criticism of the subject of a thread elicits a strong response the other way. This is the same sort of thing that MadForIt was doing in the Radiohead thread, which resulted in about 20 pages of equally hyperbolic reactions from both sides and completely derailed the thread.

That is totally inappropriate. Surely you know better.

As for the topic at hand...I love the White Stripes, but I thought that performance was a dud. I think it was the first time I've ever really been disappointed by something White Stripes.

That was pretty craptastic...

Poor Meg. She makes Lil Wayne look like a good guitar player...

She's not looking so good either these days...

couldn't let the thread die on such a downer of a performance. So here's a nice clip from better times. Their sweet grammy performance that starts off with Seven Nation Army and morphs into Death Letter.

YouTube - White Stripes - Grammy Awards

Like the shot of Tarentino at the end

That really rocks. Very cool segue between the two songs. Death Letter got a good reception from the crowd.

Hahaha...I can't believe they let Beck present at the Grammys. Awesome.

While the Conan performance certainly wasn't "great", I can't poopoo it too much, as if I would have seen them give the exact same performance of the song during a concert, I probably would have enjoyed quite a bit in that context.

Over a year ago!

Anyway, I see on iTunes that a live album from the Canadian tour is coming out March 16. That makes me happy.
