The song totally made sense for the moment, I was just shocked by acoustic.

Doing this from a boardwalk is the most Bon Jovi thing.

Meh, it was just Jon, and it was the perfect song for the moment, honestly. I'm good with it.

There was clearly a theme going on of keeping the event tastefully somber, because, *SHOCK* we're actually talking about the pandemic and the people who have died this last year.

Really brave of Bono to thank conservatives in a social media post. So brave. So moving.

You're reaching to criticize here. There's nothing wrong with what he said.

Yeah, that was pretty lame. But not surprising at all from him at this point.

These people enabled Trump for 4 years and then suddenly got a conscience when their own lives were threatened.

I've been reading about how a lot of QAnon people are having a total meltdown online today, and some of them are feeling like Trump's betrayed them and isn't the 5D chess master they thought he was.

Just...no words to describe the delusion. Maybe Biden should hire a cult deprogrammer for his administration or something.

In music discussion, I missed the evening performances, but I did like the ones at the inauguration today. Lady Gaga especially sounded good.

I wrote a piece about You Get What You Give after listening to it all day today:

And no, I didn't mention the outro, because I don't think it's overly relevant to anything happening right now. If Gregg had gone all-out and switched the celebrities to Trump, McConnell, Giuliani and Cruz, I would have been all over that.

The inauguration concert wasn't anything to write home about, but I thought they struck the right tone. There are still thousands dying every day from (not with) COVID-19, and the economy is still in ruins, so while they could recognize that today served as a potential turning point, they couldn't be overly celebratory about it. It was a solemn but uplifting set of performances.

This should go in the random movie thread, but I'll just add it here...

Yeah, that's the Q move every time: make a prediction that's false, and then either say "it's part of a larger plan" or "actually, it did happen like I said, but they had to do it in secret." And that includes arrests and executions. The arrests are ones with ankle monitors so that they keep up appearances and more get arrested; the executions include replacing people with body doubles/clones/holograms.

It's deranged and also very demonstrably absurd.

Beautiful, thank you Gump. Very Bernie, too, to sit there not giving a shit about this pretentious sophistirockpop indie band from Vancouver.

Thank you! I enjoyed writing it. When an idea is rolling around in your head, it's best to put it to paper before the moment passes.

With it being the time of year where there are only a handful of new albums out by any artists I've ever heard of, this is where I'll listen to just about anything that has above a 70 on Metacritic. Even then, I almost skipped this one when I saw the genre tags Baroque Pop and Tom Waits listed as an influence. Glad I didn't! Quite solid and I would think something Interference might enjoy:







He's apparently friendly with a lot of bigger names out there, specifically Jarvis Cocker, so I suspect this may be one of those acts that's on the rise. Or perhaps he bubbles under forever, who knows. This isn't exactly radio friendly stuff. Also he did some Twin Peaks and Mr. Rogers music last year, so that's probably something I'll check out.

Some random dumb shit I thought might give you all a chuckle, but tonight I was reminded that the band Rhye exist. I said something about the "Female" lead singer and Travis had to remind me all over again that the lead singer is a man. Which jogged my memory that we might have talked about that here once before. Sure enough:

It made me laugh to re-read that collective moment.
