My friend wrangled a GBV ticket for me.  Huzzah!

HUZZAHH!

Are you originally from Ohio DLA? If so that definitely gives you a birthright to be a GBV fan. Robert Pollard is one of my top idols, I only have five now, i've become much more conservative as I have matured somewhat. The fact that he was a star pitcher in baseball, and a star basketball player in college and also a rock god who installed a bar on the side of his home called the monument club makes him greater than Arnold S. Imho.

I'm just going to show up at the matador birthday party and demand entrance, and maybe the fact that I have a bust of Bob Pollard tattooed on my chest will get me in?
I'm not originally from here, but I've lived here for the past two years for school, and will be moving further in (Columbus) in September.  So adopted birthright, maybe?  It's going to be the bearded event of the season!

I think that tattoo should get you in anywhere at any time, but especially the Matador show.  And if you have a Malkmus tramp-stamp, you're definitely in.

Hey Christian, Forbes says that in a poll of college students Amherst is the third best University in the US. Also, it says that it hates you. One of these statements is factual.

i wonder how many times he'll keep trying for a boy before he quits.  does anyone know the names of his 3 youngest? 

Charlton Heston Beam, Aristotle Bethany Beam, and Kid Kilowatt Beam. (The spelling may be somewhat off, but those are the names).

Yeah, I almost mentioned that about a month ago when I saw those spots. They pick unusual music for commercials. I wonder if they pick indie bands because mainstream america has no direct connection with the music, and they can associate it with that commercial alone. Other examples include Phoenix - 1901 (Cadillac Commercial) Modest Mouse (Various Car Commercials) and most notably perhaps Nick Drake (VW and AT&T).

I'd guess they pick indie bands because it's a lot less expensive, and they are less likely to worry about overexposing a song.

I noticed with some television shows that they'll use big name expensive artists with easily recognizable songs in their initial broadcasts, but for hulu, they'll use someone relatively unknown.  I imagine that all comes down to money.
