I saw Amanda Palmer live in Hollywood at Amoeba Records. Say what you will about her but she put on a true show. Her grasp of true intimacy with the audience was spellbinding to say the least. She and her band did covers of “Polly” by Nirvana and “Idioteque” b Radiohead and it was done bare bones instrumentation style, and so raw, visceral, poignant, haunting and beautiful. I really feel she is an artist. I don’t focus on her eyebrows, or the incidentals of her grooming. She’s wildly gifted. Her history as a mime is probably one of the reasons she can connect so darn well in a live setting. And I hope I get at least one positive like for my new attempt at being sincere in my post(s) :)
you too amigo :)
Upvotes for you Oblivion for having a sense of humour :)
You were a fun troll. I prob should lay off the trolling for a while. I thought it was fun, but now I am feeling like a SPAM machine ( no pun intended). And, might I add, your music page was pretty cool.
I agree splinturd. I was off my game today. I got trolled by oblivion who is a terrible troll ( but the music on his link-page was pretty cool) and unfortunately it was at the top of the thread section. I understand your annoyance. That new Bowie record really rocks though. In all seriousness.
Giant rat…you are ironically being trolled by being annoyed with me and expressing it. I use $2 words that you could buy at Big Lots. I wouldn’t call them that big. Superfluous, possibly, but cerebral, no. Anyway, it’s almost hard to take a talking rat avatar seriously with the name of spliturd.
I take umbrage good sir! For an incoherent diatribe, read oblivion’s fine musings-
“haha well you’re an idiot i am!! :((”
At the very least, my comments are above the 8th grade level! I shall say good day!
There again with the Rubjon thing. It’s so unbelievable. What makes that emo haircut so troll appetizing? Trolling isn’t just about cleverness, although that could be arranged to.. Its about enjoying music on this fine blog, like waking up to a good cup of Folger’s coffee and realizing that along with my delicious breakfast, I’ll take a side order of trolling just for humor’s sake. The good folks at Stereogum probably enjoy a bit of the inane along with the overly zealous serious self righteous I know all rants. Your love affair with RubJon is oink oink ridiculous. Me and my pals have never been chauvinistic, sexist or profane to garner downvotes. RubJon is a shallow caricature of a troll and I challenge him to a mud wrestling match. And Michael O’ Neill you can sit front and center. When I’m done, I have a mud pie you can eat. Oink!
SAUNTER OVAH HERE THEN KITTY KAT. I’LL MAKE MUSIC WITH YO HEAD-BANGING IN DELICIOUS REPETITION ON THE KEYBOARD!
