Jena Malone plays music
« on: January 18, 2009, 02:34:34 PM »
and it honestly might be the worst stuff i've ever heard. the reason this bothers me is because i can only find either positive reviews of it or just vaguely negative stuff like, "well, it's pretty original." i don't get it.
like this review on a blog:

Quote
Some people may question my motives for picking Jena Malone and her Bloodstains as my band of the week. They may argue that actresses and actors should not turn into musicians. A debate could rage over the actual merits of her music. And of course some people may just assume I think she is attractive and therefore worthy of my band of the week nod. All of these are valid arguments but I will rebut them with one small story.

Last year I went to see Animal Collective at Bowery Ballroom. It was one of those rare shows where I decided seeing the band while seated would be much more enjoyable then standing and seeing the band all the way up front, so I ventured to the balcony with a friend and grabbed a table. As the show progressed through the openers Jena Malone came and stood next to us, clearly as stoned as Mary Magdalene would have been had Jesus not intervened. Jena spent the rest of the set grooving to the stylings of the Animal Collective like you could not imagine. Between touching herself and rubbing against the wall, I could not believe my eyes. And the most amazing part of the whole scene was she was the only person in the entire place that was dancing, showing that she "got" the music more than anyone else (I think).

she does drugs and likes Animal Collective, so lets all give her the proper respect.

can people please do me a favor and just listen to this and tell me it sucks.
or whatever. tell me it's great and that i don't understand it.

It sucks.

Now you can think about something else.
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

For a little while I thought Jena Malone was Pam from the Office.  It's much more interesting when you think that.
Oh, good heavens. I didnít realize. I send my condolences out to the rest of the OíConnor family.

Yeah, me too. I listened to a couple of minutes of these songs, trying my best to be charitable because of my affection for Pam.

I thought Jena Malone was Jane Krakowski's character on "30 Rock."

I mean, she sings, right?
The only Wire I care about is the one that recorded Pink Flag.

So far I've liked her in movies and she's very pretty, but yeah the music is pretty bad.
I like Animal Collective but that is one band that as they get popular their influence will be making music worse and worse.
