Revolutions Reminder!


Glyph is worse than some and better than others. He believes that life is just one damned thing after another, that only pop music can save us now, and that mercy is the mark of a great man (but he's just all right). Nothing he writes here should be taken as an indication that he knows anything about anything.

      Not too long ago I saw them play in a little dive bar, to about 25 people. Good show, talked to the band a little bit before/after (Chuck Cleaver is NOT a GbV fan, I found). I sent them a link to the piece I wrote about them here, but never heard anything back. Probably ended up in their spam folder. Or, they were annoyed that I joked about their bandname in it.

      Speaking of which – I feel a little weird wearing the shirt, but secure enough in my masculinity that I think I pull it off.Report

    @glyph I can’t be there tonight but I’ll offer this to play in my absence:

    • I’m sorry to hear that!

      Good album*, but I am afraid there are rules. You gotta show up if you want to inflict your tastes on people. That way, if it’s terrible, even if nobody says anything, you can still feel everyone silently judging you.

      Just kidding! We don’t do that! But you still have to show; if I let people nominate music in absentia then eventually I’m sitting at my computer alone on a Friday night, drinking, with a list of things to listen to.

      And that’s just like every OTHER Friday night.

      *I may have mentioned before that I often include songs on mixes because I like the tune, without too much thought to lyrics.

      My wife briefly questioned the meaning of my inclusion of “One of Us” on a mix I made for her. I wonder why?
