I support this argument if it means getting Bryter Layter the recognition it deserves. Its a stone 70s soft rock classic. Nick Drake is more than just Pink Moon (though I do unabashedly love that one too).

Speaking of European festivals, has anyone heard of Exit? Because I just heard about it for the first time last night and it sounds pretty amazing. Takes place in Serbia in a medieval fortress overlooking the Danube river. And the acts are shockingly good considering it takes place in Serbia of all places. Atoms for Peace, Chic, Nick Cave, Suede, Snoop Dogg, Disclosure, Afghan Whigs, and Queens of the Stone Age in the last two years. Plus its apparently won a ton of “best European festivals”. Also did I mention the fucking MEDIEVAL FORTRESS?

Dassa pretty good Primavera line up too

I don’t see why we can’t Sportsgum. Are music and sports really all that different? Outsized egos, rampant commercialism, liberal use of spandex, and fans that range from average NFL/poptimist casuals to La Liga/emo revival loving hipsters. I’d say they’re pretty close. Heck I could probably assign a music spirit animal for every college football team in the bowl subdivison, or at the very least pick out which pbr&b acts are “Most SEC” (hint: its How To Dress Well).

And I gotta disagree with your prediction. The Seahawks faced a team with a Hall of Fame quarterback and too many damn weapons last year, and things ended up going pretty poorly for the Forehead. The Pats aren’t going to be able to run on Seattle like they have in their last few games which means Brady is going to throw a lot, and not counting Gronk the Pats receivers aren’t that awe inspiring. Seahawks by a touchdown.

If I wanted to see old people noodling I’d go to a Chinese restaurant #hottaek

Sorry but I’m going to need at least five more words in that album title before I believe its a new Modest Mouse record.

thanks, and if Bama and the Ducks meet I’d be rooting hard for Oregon. I’m a big fan of chaos in CFB, so naturally that makes me anti-consistency and thus anti-Saban. Baylor was my pet team this year, but I get why they might be left out. I agree FSU is pretty mediocre, but unfortunately the ACC is just awful (I’m a VT fan, and yes I watched every second of that VT-Wake travesty) and they’ll probably go undefeated. Plus they have this weird penchant for pulling wins out of their asses which would be charming if they weren’t so damn unlikable. I guess I’d say either Oregon or Bama have the best chances, but I’ll be rooting for the Horned Frogs.
