The Monday Catchup
I don’t think Pine Grove is that good. That’s right. With the tap of my fingers, I just effortlessly bodied the patron saint of this institution. Roast me. I want to be skewered like a kebob and slowly charred over a flaming pile of sweet, coniferous pine logs. Don’t talk to me about their melodramatic moaning. Don’t even get me started on their “logo.” Someone gave up at step two of “How to draw a 3-D Cube,” and you, Pinegrove Superfan, cannot deny that. If you even try to give me bullshit about how those two squares represent a “very geometrically compressed bird,” I will blindfold you this Wednesday night and make you find your way out of the Pinegrove. If you don’t like what I’m saying about this logo, Evan Stephens Hall said it himself. He admits, “simple colors and simple shapes…define the Pinegrove aesthetic.” SIMPLE. COLORS. AND. SIMPLE. SHAPES. I deserve music defined by raw, passionate, hard, gritty, experience. Save the shapes and colors for babies.
But, I do like Aphasia.
I rest my case. How was your break?
“I had really good Thai food in Colombus.”
“I had really good Indian food in Cleveland.”
“I had really good Chinese food in Cincinnati.”
FYI it sounds like the lead singer is singing through a tin can IMO. SRY. If you’re angry, that sounds like a you problem :-| TTYL!
What: “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead” by Tom Stoppard
- “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead” gives away the mystery in its title — or does it? Tom Stoppard’s comedy picks up the story of these two college friends of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark somewhere in the middle of that other famous tale. But something is definitely rotten, or at least very weird, in the state of Denmark. The laws of probability and physics are out of whack.
- To be or not to be? That is the question. Whether tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune or to take arms against a sea of troubles…am I can’t remember anymore. It’s like memerizing the digits to pi. I’ll do it one day. Maybe.
