I don't have a beef with any of it really.  You name your band "Viet Cong," you're going to offend some people. It's not hard to understand why.  If I were someone whose parents or grandparents suffered and possibly died under that regime, I think I might be a little pissed.   On the other hand, it's a band name for a group no one will remember in two years anyway.

You don't think people were offended by Dead Kennedys?  Of course they were.  And that was kind of the point.  They chose that name and their lyrics and the whole schtick deliberately to offend.  That whole thing ended up with Jello Biafra debating Tipper Gore on Oprah Winfrey. 

And I mean, you can't say it doesn't work.  They got that band's show cancelled at Oberlin, didn't they?  If the band doesn't like it they can change their name.  If the band doesn't care, then that's cool too.

I mean, on this thread you are complaining that people care too much about something they shouldn't.  And then on another thread pbake is complaining that people are just tweeting about something that bothers them instead of being more activist about it.  So, you know-- what exactly is the appropriate level of protest for something you do not agree with?

The number of stages is down by four from last year. I also will miss Know. The Lightborne stage is in a parking lot on the corner of 14th and Sycamore.

Tristen vs Zola Jesus vs Sphynx? Arrggg!

I know the Midway is gone. They said it is because of the streetcar construction so hopefully it will be back in the future. And I will really miss the Know Theatre. That was always my home base. Whenever there wasn't anyone I really wanted to see playing, I would head there and see who was playing. That's where I first saw both Lydia Loveless and the Ridges.

I'm really not sure what your beef with this is.  Like you wouldn't roll your eyes if you walked past people protesting a New Order show.  Also, using "hipster" as an insult is pretty boring and unimaginative.  If anything, I would have gone with "over-the-hill balding dudes who all hoped the concert wouldn't run too long because they had to work the next morning."

Whoa! Nice one, Euro. That is pretty sweet. If they send you another one can you send it my way?!? :)

But can it survive the harsh Belgian fall?  I guess you will find out!

Should I be rooting for WBA now that Rickie is there? He still has my heart.

I absolutely cannot believe my good fortune today. As a long-time and highly rated Amazon reviewer, Amazon gives me free stuff to review (I can choose from a list of offerings). Usually it's books or CDs or something like that. The other day, I noticed that a suitcase was on the list. As it happens, I am in the market for a new suitcase, so I jumped on it without knowing much about the product. It arrived this morning, and when I opened the box, I was aghast. Top of the line, 4 wheeled, ultra light yet super-protective shell, etc. etc. Price tag if you want to buy this: $650. And I got it for free. To say that I am beyond ecstatic about this would be the understatement of the year.

They need to get some bats at some point.  All the deals have been for arms so far.
