I read the first few paragraphs of that article, then it occurred to me that I don't give two shits about the Arcade Fire or music journalism.

enough with the fucking navel gazing.

Here here. This is one of those examples of scanning through one page of an article online, looking at the bottom and realizing "this goes on for 4 more pages? Screw this." So you went to a concert that had ridiculous hard tickets to get a hold of and you don't like the band. So what? DON'T GO. And please, don't bother me with bragging about how you saw the Clash in '81. There's enough bands out there to find what you want and to get excited about something. Teddy "Miata full of Cristal" Rockstar made a good point in that chat this week, taken a little out of context in this way: "when I want to listen to a Bad Brains record, I wanna listen to a Bad Brains record, but when I wanna listen to a Beach Boys record, then I'm glad to have them around."
