Music Tuesdays – Festival Express (and enough of Arcade Fire already)

0 Comments 10 September 2013


It’s Tuesday so we’re focusing on Music around the office. Normally this is my favorite day of the week because I like to wiggle and listen to music while I stare out the window. But T.W. is annoying the crap out of me today. He’s more annoying than a hangnail. More annoying than the elusive last Cheerio in your cereal bowl! You know?!

And it all comes down to Arcade Fire. Yes, that same band that won the Grammy in 2011 for album of the year. What gives Arcade? No one heard of you at the time you won and ┬áno one’s heard from you since. Go back under your rock and work on your hip comb over. IF winning another Grammy next year will make you go away for another 2….I could live with that arrangement. The Grammy’s validity died in the toilet with Elvis.

T.W.’s walking around with tight black jeans, talking about equal exchange coffee and predicting what ‘mainstream’ people will be into in 3 months. He reminds me of a piece of yarn that’s holding a turd to a trash can.

Indie rock is dead and good riddance. To help you get your head clear from all that mumbo jumbo today’s Music Highlight focuses on Buddy Guy. If you’d like to watch the whole Festival Express film (which I recommend) you can view it here.

Stay strong guys….the hipsters will be out of our hair soon so we can press on.
