this band warms my heart ALMOST as much as the story about grimes on a houseboat

122 here, I take back my previous comment after looking at picture of her smiling. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME SHE BRUSHED HER TEETH!???

I'm some guy who writes me stuff on here myself sometimes, but do you guys realize how disgusting it is to value women only as a function of how physically attractive they are (to you).

2:25 - pls explain

That video was obnoxious. I was praying one of the Occupy rapists would make an appearance.

2:34: I have seen her five times or so. From a free show at Bruar Falls to that huge thing at the west side riverfront, and she is bonkers-good live. I can see why people don't get in to the records as much, but the show is A+.

"I'm some guy who writes me stuff on here myself sometimes, but do you guys realize how disgusting it is to value women only as a function of how physically attractive they are (to you)."


At least in my case, there's more to it than that. I don't find any of the women in Wild Flag at all attractive, but I love the band to death and would never make comments about their looks. But then, there's Lana Del Rey who makes shitty music but has virtues as a fucktoy, and there's Merrill Garbus who makes shitty music but has all the aesthetic virtues of a full kitty litter box.

The lesson here is to make good music and no one will give a fuck what you look like.

12:25 here. Thank you 12:26 for actually providing proof amidst all the false talk that is easy to throw out there on this site. Nicely done. Will hop on this as soon as possible.

lol @ the "he showed you"/"you got served" responses.

^ keep up the patting yourselves on the back for talking about an act in a post about another act.

^ Well, I didn't actually bring it up in the first place I merely reponded. But I will keep patting myself on the back, thanks for reminding me to do so! :)
