i don't think lit are genuinely a good band, actually. i have a huge sentimental attachment from middle school, someone gave me a lit cd and i liked it and got another. they're a guilty pleasure that i don't even indulge in very often.

I don't know. It's a good idea, but I do enjoy just sharing amongst a small group.

I bet a thread like that will get swamped by "OMG U2 IS MY HOBBYYY LOOK AT MY BAWNO PIX!!!!!!!"

It's all pretty good, kind of a lot of the same though as far as late 90s/00s alt -rock is concerned. I really did like the first song a lot though.

you could specify that it's non-bono.

you could also make it only modes of transit to make it more niche. or non-personal things (no cats, tattoos, etc)

I wasn't paying out Lit specifically, I wasn't listening one of their songs. I think there are good pop/rock songs with strings. But I will say that there a lot of downright terrible ones, and they all become radio hits just because they have an orchestra holding A for 3 and a half minutes. It's really frustrating and predictable.

I see what you're saying SP, sometimes, yeah the strings are unnecessary, but when they belong, they're amazing.

fair, i wasn't actually insulted. and i agree. though sometimes i fall for that weepy strings or piano shit. like that vanessa carlton song. i think i played that on the piano at one point. and the 100 years song. i'm a sucker.

Ah, now that might be a good idea/ Transport/Infrastructure photos. Then Ian can get his stadiums in too.

Regarding strings, on a related note, I really hate it when bands decide to do a "special" concert with an orchestra. See: Metallica, Dream Theater, U2 doing OOTS in Milan.

It is never really that good, and a total wasted effort.
