Looks like he's a sleigh bells fan

I bet yaps will be there.

I wish he would play with a band already. This solo thing is getting tired.

Springtime in New York

As much as I love the guy, he has gotten a little creepy in his old age. And he hates air conditioning so it will be balls hot.

I don't love the guy, but I'm always up for a good show. What I cannot tolerate is no air conditioning though. Even the savages know how to make their huts and caves cool with flowing water and such. Being hot is for self-hating _______ (fill in the blank)

he is pure and talented, not like most of the poser shit out there, so don't worry about it.

its amazing how the first modern lovers album is so good and great and everything he did since is horrible nursery rhyme garbage idiot music with stupid lyrics and nothing cool nothing nothing

I like his show.

Some shows are better than others but the last one I saw a few months ago was great. You have to have a huge stick up your ass to not enjoy watching him. Just don't go expecting a bunch of old songs & you'll be fine.

The only reason I would go to this is to stare the fucker down then walk the fuck out.

^^He'd probably love that, actually. He thrives on uncomfortable shit. People who think he's all happy-happy nursery rhyme don't get his deal at all.

Posted by Anonymous | March 13, 2012 5:32 PM

^ I wouldn't be doing it for his amusement. I'm not some hipster poser. If I walk the fuck out, it's because I cannot tolerate the nonsense any longer.

OK, tough guy.
