One More Live 8 Thought
Pink Floyd sounds fucking AMAZING. Holy shit. This is awesome.
That is all.
Ok, they look like they live in my grandfather's nursing home. But they sound like twenty years ago. My son is freaking out. He's getting to see Pink Floyd play live (on tv, yea, but you know what I mean).
yea, i came close to tears during wish you were here. you can't understand.
P.S. MTV SUCKS. They TALKED over Comfortably Numb. Idiots.
I just have to say it so it's abundantly clear: MTV's coverage of Live 8 SUCKED. And they topped off the suckfest of stupid hosts and shoddy coverage of the music by TALKING OVER COMFORTABLY NUMB.
/shakes fists at MTV.
Update: A few hours later and I'm still livid. Go figure. A MUSIC station which seems to know nothing about MUSIC. Who cuts away from Gilmour solo? Who cuts away from Pink Floyd at all during their freaking reunion? Who cuts away from Pete Townsend as he's doing his windmills? I'll tell you who. A station that has fallen so far from what it started as that it is unrecognizable. A station that thinks Little John is rock star. They are the laughing stock of the world right now, I'll tell you that. Check blogs, message boards, listen to radio stations - no one is talking about Live Aid, per se - they are talking about what a buttfucking MTV gave to Pink Floyd and how godawful their coverage of this major music event was. Tools.
Yea, I'm supposed to be on this semi-hiatus. But I'm all kinds of pissed off.
