Thanks, Mr.Hipster Record Store Clerk.
Date: 2008-02-26, 5:25PM PST
Thank you for judging me on the CD I bought yesterday. Our passive-aggressive altercation made me realize how conformist I am for buying an old Rage Against The Machine album. Your condescension was just the intellectual wake-up call I needed.
I discovered a new me yesterday, and my eyes were opened in a new way. Thanks to you, I realize now that the key to enlightenment is reading Pitchfork, watching High Fidelity, listening to Velvet Underground, having a tattoo of a star on the inside of my wrist, growing an ironic mustache, living in the Mission, and wearing a too-small sweater, multi-colored 70’s ski-vest, chunky plastic-frame glasses, a high school sports T-shirt, air-tight black jeans, and Nixon-era Chuck Taylors.
I had it all wrong, man. You showed me that a skilled job and a comfortable living is just a lie. I need to go to art school, have my parents pay my rent, join a Joy Division-influenced band, and wait for a record deal, like you. I’m totally missing out in life.
So thanks again for mocking me. I mean, at first I thought you were just a pathetic, frustrated musician trying to feel better about yourself. But now I see you’re an uncompromising visionary.
No one will ever understand you. You’re so different.

Concert Review | Kings of Leon bring blasting, danceable tracks — and Eddie Vedder — to Paramount show
Great review. Great show.
More in a bit.
Click the picture for a picture slideshow from the P-I.
Seattle P-I review says the show might have been better than Radiohead.
Snyer and I had sweet seats in the second row of balcony number one. After a nice pre-funk session in the Paramount Club we hit our seats just moments before KOL hit the stage. To my surprise the Paramount was packed and people were going nuts! I didn't realize KOL had become so popular in the past couple of years. They play a nice mix of old and new and then Mr. Eddie Vedder join in on Slow Night, So Long right before the encore. He looked like a flanneled-drunk grunge dude trying to dance his best Bruce Springsteen impression. Fun show!
