Not a joke: My mom said she spent a good part of her day last Saturday shopping for that Ting Tings record.

WTF? Weezer is #3?!?!

If buybacks weren't based on the condition and were based on the merit of the artists work, I bet that album would get you a penny.

Curious about the WSJR crew's thoughts on Centromatic and/or South San Gabriel

11:14 AM....I wouldn't expect much from them. I don't think those bands pants are tight enough.

Tightening your pants will not make your songs not suck. Nothing can help these bands with the loose fitting trousers and the really bad songs. 11:31, you are not intelligent.

I don't mind either one of those bands even though that kind of music isn't really my thing. But if Will Johnson threw some tighter pants on from time to time, who knows? Maybe I'd be all over that.

Dear defensive listening...Your response seems to miss the irony of which your peer-group seems so fond. Listen to more of your boyfriend's music and DON'T stop making uninformed comments.

Dear Stonedranger...as you seem to be quite intelligent AND you have a sense of humour I applaud you and pray you take no offense.

There is no irony in your statement and unfortunately for me, my peer group is much more likely to include touchy South San Gabriel fans like yourself. You were just making the typical "good ol' regular dudes playing music" argument and trying to sum up our taste with a blanket, anti-hipster statement about tight pants. I have little patience for shit like this and I wish I had a boyfriend that listened to cool music so I could rip all his LP's to my hard drive, but thanks for the ignorant misogyny. I hope you choke on your Miller Lite and pretzels, you philistine phuck.

Goethe had several comments on the type. "The Philistine not only ignores all conditions of life which are not his own but also demands that the rest of mankind should fashion its mode of existence after his own"

I sorry!!

Well, since you were the one who brought up your own restrictive world view in the first place, perhaps your lack of tolerance for jean sizes and Goethe's statement will have you doing a little soul searching as you wander the wide aisles of Costco this evening, champ.

You know me so well DL! I could learn a lot from an underground "fringe dweller" such as yourself.

I thought I might hit Purgatory tonight...wanna tag along?

No way, bro. Unless I want to break up knife fights that my cousins get into.

Forgive me DL; I get a little testy sometimes. I bet we'd be pals in the 3-D world.

No problem. Obviously, I'm a little testy myself.

b/c of the beards, the tight jeans are the only way to tell the difference btwn the hipsters and al qaeda.
so yes, we must be at war with our pants.

Maybe we should stop wearing pants completely.

Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance

There will come a time when everybody
Who is lonely will be free . . .
TO SING & DANCE & LOVE
There will come a time when every evil
That we know will be an evil . . .
THAT WE CAN RISE ABOVE

Who cares if hair is long or short
Or sprayed or partly grayed . . .
WE KNOW THAT HAIR AIN'T WHERE IT'S AT

(there will come a time when you won't even be ashamed if you are fat!)

WAH WAH-WAH WAH

La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la (a-a-ah!)
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la (oo-wee-ooh!)

Diddle-diddle-dee
(Diddle-diddle-dee)
Diddle-diddle-dee
(Diddle-diddle-dee)
Diddle-diddle-dee
(Diddle-diddle-dee)
Diddle-diddle-dee
(Diddle-diddle-dee)

La la la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la
WAH WAH-WAH WAH

There will come a time when everybody
Who is lonely will be free . . .
TO SING & DANCE & LOVE (dance and love)

There will come a time when every evil
That we know will be an evil . . .
THAT WE CAN RISE ABOVE (rise above)

Who cares if you're so poor you can't afford
To buy a pair of Mod A Go-Go stretch-elastic pants . . .
THERE WILL COME A TIME WHEN YOU CAN EVEN
TAKE YOUR CLOTHES OFF WHEN YOU DANCE
