Oh hell don't get me started on Muse. Boo to Matt Bellamy! Boo! Booooo! And while we're at it, boo to Craig Bellamy (no relation) as well, crappy bad hair ex-Norwich evil evil evil...nevermind.

I really couldn't give a crap about the Killers, apart from the fact they remind me slightly of New Order's sound on their last album (just a little side-track here but bloody hell, is it going to be another 200 years between New Order albums again?).

Anyway, I think the best example of a band who get loads (and fucking loads) of attention is Radiohead. Does that invalidate their output as complete and utter shit? Hell no.

I personally think the Killers CD is very good. I also saw them live last month and they put on a really good show.

I don't really let the media affect me so much to the point where it turns me off of a band. Some bands deserve the attention they get, and The Killers have really impressed alot of people this year across the board, and there's nothing wrong with that.

To clarify, I don't think The Killers are necessarily the next big thing. But I do think they made a great debut album. Who knows where their career will go, but I like their sound, and think it is fun and sexy music.

i thought i tried to throw in the point yertle made, but apparently i didn't. i am fully aware of that fact.


as to the killers being the "next big thing", i disagree with you. i think that they're everywhere enough right now that they qualify as being as close to the next big thing as possible.

lesson 1: learn to read. never was a musical comparison made.

lesson 2: there, their, and they're.

their indicates possession: for example, "joe and suzy have a cat. it is hungry. their cat wants to eat dinner." in this case, "their" emphasizes the fact that joe and suzy own the cat. there is the slight matter of

they're is a contraction, a combination of the words "they" and "are." i believe this is the one you wanted.

there indicates place. "the book is lying on the table over there."

lesson 3: deathbear's post was funnier.

1. Qing xue xi zen yang du. Wo mei you yong yin yue zuo shen me bi jiao.
2. 'There', 'their' yu 'they're' shi bu yi yang.

'Their' zhi de shi 'you'. Li ru, 'Joe yu Suzy you xiao mao mi. Ta men de xiao mao mi xiang chi fan'. Zhe li lai shuo, 'their' zhi de Joe yu Suzy you yi zhi xiao mao mi'.

'They're' shi you 'They' yu 'are' suo duan de. Wo ren wei zhe shi ni xiang yong de.

'There' zhi de di fang. 'Na ben shu zai na bian'.

3. Si xiong jiang de geng you qu.

i should probably learn to finish what i'm saying in english first, don't you think?

"their indicates possession: for example, "joe and suzy have a cat. it is hungry. their cat wants to eat dinner." in this case, "their" emphasizes the fact that joe and suzy own the cat. there is the slight matter of "

uh....where was i going with that?

nothing more lame than an insult that falls short.

(actually, i'm writing it up in russian in paint, and i'll post it once i'm done. but first i need to go study finnish before my exam in 45 minuntes)
