I don’t know how long this has existed, but I just noticed it in a drugstore near my place. It made my day.
Go on, ladies; hide yourselves so you can be beautiful. Then the next morning after some men had sex with your plastic bodies, they’ll leave you once you get out of the shower and reveal who you really are.
Fuck that shit. I wish we were all goddamn hairy hippies.
I was wearing my Porcupine Tree - The Incident t-shirt, and some random older man approached me and complimented my shirt; then asked me if I got it at one of their shows. I replied that yes, I did, and then added that I’ve seen Porcupine Tree twice in Montreal and once in London, you know, just to let him know that I love the band… the guy then took a defensive voice and said “Well I saw them 5 times in Montreal and once in New-York! I think I beat you!”
Wow. Is this a competition? Really? What, do you think I’ll give you a medal for having seen them more than I did? Do you think Steven Wilson will marry you, or something? I just wanted to share my enthusiasm for an upcoming great show. No need to get all possessive and whiny about it. Sheesh. I wonder why people get so defensive about their favourite artists. They’re not our possessions, they’re human beings sharing their creations. We should gather up and unite, be happy to know that a lot of people like the same things we do… not bark & bite anyone else in the same territory.
That being said, I’d much rather go see Porcupine Tree live in London again than go see them in New York. His argument to an non-existing conflict sucked.
He publicly declared that the Montreal audience was his favourite tied with Paris’. Apparently the French people are a good crowd. It’s funny, though, I attended his Montreal show and personally thought we sucked.
Pain of Salvation just lost their longest-serving lead guitarist, Johan Hallgren, and then departed on tour but had to cancel numerous shows ‘cause their bus broke down, then they took a plane to London where another tour bus was supposed to wait for them, but wasn’t since it broke down even before picking them up…
… so yesterday I cracked a joke about them losing their last band member who’s been with them since the very start.
… and this morning I find out said-band-member, Fredrik Hermansson, is leaving the band too.
So I went to EB Games yesterday for the first time in I can’t remember how long, and while we were waiting for the guy to get my games from the storage, some other cashier told another client “I’ll go get your copy of Michael Jackson”… then I turned to my girlfriend and asked “These people actually exist?”
