So purportedly I suck
Alright, the Ryan Reynolds post evidently didn't fly by you guys. I'm sorry that I subjected you to my point of view. Evidently I'm an idiot for liking someone you guys don't. Shame on me. But now that I am the current owner of the worst blog post ever, I have license to do or say anything I want because it can't get any worse, right? Well, I just wanted to let you guys in on one of the best live bands I have ever seen. There's no other way to put it but, to quote MIB, "The Faint is fucking awesome." We went to the show on Wednesday night and it was mind boggling how good of a show those guys put on. It was non-stop from beginning to end. Bright Eyes was just boring in comparison. They should really switch who the headliner is because those Digital Ash songs fall flat after the Faint plays their set. Its like watching a double header where the first game is a high scoring home run fest and the second is a pitcher's duel. You appreciate the pitcher's duel, but the home runs are more fun to watch. Everyone was rockin during the Faint, but just kind of mellowed out during Bright Eyes. Anyway, if you ever get the chance to see them live, jump on it. And if you talk shit about this post GA Hill, I won't be your friend anymore. Worst post my ass. Write another meaningless Cubs rant.

Solid post, Big Boi. Good comeback from the Ryan Reynolds debacle. I apparently a huge loser and have never heard any of The Faint. Can you give me a little description of their sound? Also, if I were to pick up a disc, which would you recommend?
The Faint is pretty digital. I don't want to compare them to Nine Inch Nails, because they're a much different sound, but that's about the closest thing I can think of. I guess they're a happier, more friendly version of NIN. I like Wet from Birth a little bit more than Danse Macabre, but they're both really damn good albums. They have them on itunes if you want to listen to the 30 second clips of the songs. Personal faves: Desperate Guys, Erection, and I Disappear
I forgot to say earlier Mr. Big Boi, while I don't support the man crush, I do like Ryan Reynolds. Especially in Van Wilder, that's a classic flick & he does a great job.
I thought Van Wilder was garbage. The debut of Tara Reid's boob job was the highlight for me. And I loved your boy's work in Two Guys, A Girl and A Pizza Place. That really picks up the void that Step by Step left in my heart.Post a Comment
