so my last post for the night is to confess that there's this one coldplay song (i dunno which, i don't listen to them, but i hear it on the radio) and the opening chords always make me think it's 2000s u2 for .5 second.

It's like fanfic on TV!
that's hilarious!

Ahh, I could see how people could think that. Some of the songs do drag. It really isn't an accurate representation of their sound, though. At the time they recorded that, they'd just lost their drummer, so all the songs they wrote turned out to be acoustic/piano songs. You'd probably like the more psychadelic BRMC album.

Just extracting the files now and I realise I haven't downloaded Soda. Hopefully it'll be fully downloaded by the time Shoes is done, though.

Hey Axver, I want your judgement on something. See, I got a free subscription of Spin, which is like Rolling Stone only more indie with a younger audience. Basically I haven't heard of two-thirds of the bands they feature, but what the hell, it was free.

Anyway, I was flipping through one of them and there was an album review for some band I've never heard of. They said that the production was so bad that it sounded like it was recorded on masking tape, and that the guitars were so distorted that they sounded like vacuum cleaners, and the whole thing was overlaid over boring beats from a dollar store drum machine..... but they said they loved all of that stuff and gave it four stars.

Probably should be. Each section is about 53 minutes long.

lol, i used to subscribe to spin way back when. i remember them interviewing the spice girls pre-nicknames (like they dubbed them something totally different before the scary, sporty, etc. names stuck), the infamous no doubt cover with only gwen, etc.

yeah i'm pretentious. wanna fight about it?

i can hear it in my head but i don't know lyrics so i can't say which one...but, it's a sad story about 2000s u2, or about coldplay ripping them off, or something

man tonight while talking about music my boyfriend set me up for all these great digs that were just "just like 2000s u2" but he didn't get any of them.

Everyone else rips off U2 these days. Why can't Coldplay?

Dear computer,

Could you possibly run any slower?

No love,
