I live in Milwaukee and have been to shows both here and in Chicago. The Chicago crowds are just terrible. Just disinterested fans, don't make much noise, think they are the shizzit, and.... ugh. I won't even go to Chicago to see anyone now. Not worth the fans, the hassle getting there, the overpriced everything, and the fans. Did I mention that? Friday is awesome. The other two days, meh. But you couldn't pay me to go there and sit through one set amongst 50,000 sweaty, disinterested fans.

I think I speak for the majority when I quote Knocked Up in, "Steely Dan gargles my balls. If I ever listen to Steely Dan I want you to slice my head off with an Al Jarreau LP." The fact that Steely Dan is now, apparently, in some ironic 'they're so cool' stage is frightening to me.

But what about this LeMonjello - What if U2 AREN'T capable of better at this point anymore? And, what if our expectations need to be tampered down just a bit? Everyone seems alright with the fact Pearl Jam aren't going to be making another Vitalogy anytime soon and they don't get raked over the coals for it. That all being said...even with tampered down expectations...this album doesn't deliver any fully-developed 'new' or 'exciting' sound. It sounds ATYCLB, Part IV.

The EDM digital short was the best. thing. ever. It was spot-on point. The best. It was much better than Cats. I'm going to see it again and again. Samburg is becoming the next Fallon for me. Found them both serviceable when on the show, only to grow to really miss them and like them more post-SNL.

Father John is the best. Tillman's voice and Beck's make for a ridiculously great harmony there.

Wow. I love Coldplay, but even mentioning them from creative standpoint with the likes of those bands is wayyyy off-base. You need to go back and check out these bands' albums. Coldplay is a great band. They put out great songs. They are no way U2 or REM or Beatles-eque in taking chances and really going nuts. There's nothing wrong with that, either. They're U2/REM-lite. That's still great and not a bad thing. Just don't make them something they aren't (which many haters and even fans like to do to them).

I mean...Coldplay was BEFORE Bon Iver. Too much wine.

February 25, 2014 on Coldplay – “Midnight”
I'll admit it, I'm a big Coldplay fan. X&Y is their worst album by far, but there are some stellar songs on there. It just came off as a re-tread of a band not knowing who to trust to make the next step developmentally. Thankfully, they turned to Mr. Eno to help set them straight. They're never, ever going to be Radiohead or U2 from a taking-chances standpoint I think. But, they've made great strides and admit it...they write damn good songs! I think this song is really sweet and a continued progression. Very excited for whatever we hear next. And last but not least, Bon Iver came BEFORE Coldplay. Just because BonIver is hip now, does not mean Coldplay is copying them, alright.

Not since the days of Ferrell do I look forward to someone - in this case Keenan - continuously coming into a sketch for the sole purpose of yelling. Don't care how many times he does it, it's funny everytime.

All I know is this is the first musical performance in a while (probably since Kanye last time) that when it was done w/both songs that I just sat there and wanted to yell out "Damnn!!!!". That was epic. Aside - I can't wait to see whatever David Fincher film features "Black Skinhead" in it!

Can I just say that the picture above is stopped at JUST the right time to capture so many potential-captions over everyone's head? Who did that? Wes Anderson? It looks like Wes Anderson did it. What is everyone thinking in the photo above? I'll go first: Jennifer Garner - wow, I approve of that performance, Ben! Bill Hader - So...now what do I do?

Also, you KNEW there's be a muth-effin' montage sequence of Jim and Pam that would make us all cry. Guilty as charged. Congrats writers-of-the-Office. Your week is done.

I think the Office is going out on a high note. They struggled after Carrell left, but now that they knew this year was the end, I honestly think they've done an admirable job of tidying things up where it's not patronizing to the audience, but at the same time, being just-patronizing enough to make us satisfied w/the ending...which hasn't ended yet. I guess what I'm saying is, it's not the Sopranos.
