And Pitchfork delivers right on cue with a lead review.

:lol:

First sentence = gold.



The same exact thing could be said about any other band you listened to in high school. What about the Cure and Depeche Mode kids who walked aroud in dark clothing depressed all the time? What about the granola kids who would only listen to 3rd rate Grateful Dead live recordings? What about the group of preppies that would only listen to Garth Brooks and attend b52 and Dave Matthews band concerts? Or the guys who worshipped Stevie Ray Vaughan? Or the Linkoln Park t-shirt kids and their angsty look?

It goes on and on and on. And it's a lazy cop out that lacks imagination. If you are going to trash a band, try something that takes a bit of creativity.

There's nothing wrong with a high school kid writing bad poetry in his notebook...that sort of thing should be encouraged.

Agreed. But he needs an editor before he starts making records.

The Doors music is about as compelling as the shit eating grin your sister has after lapping her tongue in and out of your moist, hungry butthole.



Dude, have you found a girl yet? I think you're getting loopy.

So this is a Ryan Adams thread now?

Since when did it become bad to inspire someone to do something creative? There's nothing wrong with a high school kid writing bad poetry in his notebook...that sort of thing should be encouraged. I suppose it would be better if he listened to a hip indie band and spent his free time playing nintendo instead?



You forgot the trip to Whole Foods for the organic frozen buritos, and the trip to the Gap for the earth tone clothing. Scratch the razor though, cause this pubic hair beard is going to shine!

That's a funny reply. But I'm serious. Also, I don't do them anymore. I learned enough from those experiences.

I know you're serious, but it's going to be awhile before I can go anywhere. I'm not really discontent with my station in life anyway.

Indie hipsters are just jealous.



What are they doing in the Hyacinth House?
What are they doing in the Hyacinth House?
To please the lions this day

I need a brand new friend who doesn't bother me
I need a brand new friend who doesn't trouble me
I need someone, yeah, who doesn't need me

I see the bathroom is clear
I think that somebody's near
I'm sure that someone is following me, oh yeah

Why did you throw the Jack of Hearts away?
Why did you throw the Jack of Hearts away?
It was the only card in the deck that I had left to play

And I'll say it again, I need a brand new friend
And I'll say it again, I need a brand new friend
And I'll say it again, I need a brand new friend, the end

If anything, the surviving members (particularly Manzarek) deserve a bad rap for riding the coattails of Morrison with that laughable attempt to revive the legacy with The 21st Century Doors and the endless packagings and repackagings of material. cf. Perception

Morrison gets more exhumations than Emmet Till.

I celebrate their cheesiness, their shitty lyrics and retarded arrangements.

At least you're honest.

Ray Manzerek has broken on through to the other side

 

I guess we'll never get to see him reunite with Van Morrison.

it's been a sad day. those keyboard lines are part of my soul.


I fully support people doing drugs on the streets. I'm sick and tired of people being selfish by doing drugs in the privacy of their own homes. Do it on the streets where you can share with your friends and neighbors. It's the Christian thing to do.
