Now, I know you love NYD more than I do, but... How can they not see the vast gap between playing a song they've never done live before and one they've done a billion times?!? Was that the reason they wussed out with that bullshit about keeping the mood up? No, they just got scared and played it safe.

*fumes impotently*
This all just ties back to that baffling opinion that the set takes half an hour to recover from Drowning Man that was aired after the Barcelona rehearsals. WTF. No, you just play Streets or Bad or Beautiful Day, and whatever boorish people in the audience were lost by WAS/DM are straight back into the mood of it.

I refuse to believe that whole entourage is stupid enough to believe that 30-minute recovery stuff. Which won't make it untrue, I know!

Bleh, I wish I didn't care. And while I was there, I didn't.

This $19 cap on 3 is looking pretty good, there's a normal-looking Nokia phone that comes free on it. One customer recommends it for someone who wants a basic phone...

Bandit.fm sucks. I've searched for three artists and they don't have any of them. The first two I could understand as being a bit obscure, but come on, the Kaiser Cheifs?!
