Title: Random MGMT Thoughts
Post by: photographyLOVER on October 24, 2010, 12:45:16 PM
A thread for all your MGMT pondering, nonsense, and what not :) The MGMT section is primarily for news but if you have some question, a thought, a rant, or more concerning MGMT, go ahead and post it here :) This way, the MGMT section is nice and tidy. Post away!

I'm now thoroughly convinced that Matthew Asti is a pseudo name. Not really, but I can't find crap on him. May I ask where she got September 17 from?

Hey MGMT, in the secret forums, we like to photoshop your faces onto women's bodies, talk about your hotness, make fanfictions, talk about our experiences with y'all, and theorise about the significance of your quotes/lyrics, seeing how they fit into our current social situations, not personally, but universally. Seeing how if in the future your quotes/lyrics have any reflection on current events, therefore solidifying our hunches/sneaking suspicions that you may be somehow deeply tapped into the universe, picking up on signals of what's to come without fully realising it.

Ok, srs now y'all. No more hurt feelings.
On songmeanings this has been bothering me; in the lyrics they have it written as "In the long hall" when it's (I'm almost postive) "In the long haul".
And in the old "Someone's Missing" thread I quoted the actual meaning from a legit review/interview thing, which said that it is simply about feeling like someone is missing (But not knowing who is).
So if someone could help a ho out and post the meaning/try to get in contact with the poster of the lyrics to correct the line (it completely changes the meaning), I would take a nap.

Here it is: "The spectral and soulful Someone's Missing came from a feeling that MGMT would get on tour where the vaguest psychic apparition would leave traces "like there was another band member who wasn't there or something. It's that weird feeling like something's missing, nothing feels right." The track echoes the plaintive sound of that someone calling from across the dimensional divide."

Do you have any news on the new album? (I doubt it)
Not to be mean, but because a few weeks back,
I read in an interview that they are probably not going to
begin writing new material, until they finish this years tour.

Sometime in January or February.

Also, when those false reports came out about MGMT having "less creative control" on the new album,
they said that they hadn't even begun writing new stuff.

I did the same thing...Sizzle can tell you because she would see me first hand when I got a piece of information-I follow my own advice...I ask myself, can this go in an existing thread?  Most of the threads I start are breaking news and I'm afraid people won't see it if it's not in a new thread.  I hate doing it though.

bitches, ~i be thinking of making a new album thread for the last few months so if anyone else even dares to i will cut you so bad that mj will rise again to rival me.

just a warning


I hate make new threads-it makes me twitch...so go for it.  But I think it's quite premature when the bun isn't yet in the oven.

Maybe on New Year's Eve or smth. I'm kind of silly about new threads, I'd made so many I was almost top thread maker so I went back and searched through the board to delete my old and silly threads  :-X

i've only made one thread on here.

Random MGMT thought:  so glad i made the decision to get Ryman tickets.  I speculated that they would just keep getting better and better throughout the tour, and it's proven true now.  hot like mexico, rejoice!!

I'm so happy that you did too!

I'm thinking that I may need another round of antibiotics before Ryman-I still feel like crap.

Do you have any news on the new album? (I doubt it)
Not to be mean, but because a few weeks back,
I read in an interview that they are probably not going to
begin writing new material, until they finish this years tour.

Sometime in January or February.

Also, when those false reports came out about MGMT having "less creative control" on the new album,
they said that they hadn't even begun writing new stuff.

I'm only saying something unimportant haha but as a lot of people have said / have thought that they should take a break... I agree. Honest, as I've joked about wanting a new CD and tour already, I think they need to just kick back and relax, so, I don't mind how long it will take to start the whole new album process, just as long as I know they are thinking of doing another one  :D

Congratulations isn't even old so I don't think we should be so demanding lol!

Agreed. The first thing after touring shouldn't be proceeding to create another album. OS was 2-3 years old when Congratulations came out, so how can it be expected to have another album within less than a year? They can take their time, if that's what's needed to write another truly wonderful album. :)

I know this is just a gossip question but I'm under the impression that andrew wears braces(?) That would explain much about the brightness of hus shiny smile. I noticed this when I briefly met him in paris before the gig they performed. Does anyone know if he actually does wear some? Just being worried about his exceptionnal smile changing.

Not certain on this, so don't hold me accountable. But from what I can tell, I believe he just wears a clear plastic retainer. I've heard in the past that he wore a retainer to fix his teeth, but I haven't seen any change. So it may just be a retainer to keep them how they are. But like I said, I'm not certain, but I try.

JCJ is right  :)  He wears invisible braces.  This fact is mentioned briefly in the April 2010 Brooklyn Issue of BlackBook Magazine in an interview with Ben and Andrew.  Personally, I can notice a slight change if you look at photos of him from college and then recent photos.    You can read the interview here ~~> http://www.blackbookmag.com/article/mgmt/17441/P1

Yeah it's sad but at least the last concert we went to was really great.  We still get to hear about the last leg of the European tour, and then they get a well-deserved break.  I can't even imagine how exhausted they must be after constantly being on the move for 7 months or so.  We've still got Dan's documentary to get excited about, and the prospects of a new album in the future future.

So I was really bored this weekend, nothing went right, blah blah blah. So I made this;

Ten things I've Learned from MGMT
1) Contrary to popular belief, I do not, in fact, know Brian Eno.
2) You're a weasel who's lost your touch. However, you are extremely skinny. Kudos to you for that, but it's not enough.
3) I can trust that my head won't bust if I stand by a pillar of hope. Well, it's made of hope but some concrete or cement would be nice, but it doesn't really matter because I'm just having a case of flash delirium.
4) How will I know if it's working? When light confuses, there's isles of bruises, there's mangled lines, there's signs of aging, I'm deceived when I try to feel at all, I want to turn on noise to feed poison, I feel alright as I lay down, assembly lines carry warnings in the form of velvet to a grassy area, and lies are thoroughly clean to the point of which they shine.
5) Cold-blooded claws don't offer anything at all. Not even a little.
6) Whistles can magically untie nooses, no questions asked.
7) Souls, more often than not, are lost in starry voids.
8 ) I am loved in glacial ways, and have tiny voices that speak of their mother's death to concur.
9) Locking our parents out of their living quarters and cutting rugs is very sensible, after all the youth is starting to change.
10) Y'all think of some :)

Yeah, so I came upon this bit on youtube... what quite is it? or where is it from? Does anybody have any info?

Pre The Management demo soo idk before The Management probally 2003 or 4? they were still in college.


Ok, someone feel free to correct me if I am wrong, but I don't believe this is MGMT at all - even when they were under the name The Management.  This song is from the "other" Management and can be found on their cd titled  "17 Minutes in the Cheap Seats".

I've been wondering (and sorry if it has been discussed before or something), is it Indie Rokkers or Indie Rockers? I was sure that it was with K since on the Time to Pretend EP it's written like this (and that's what everyone writes), but I saw that on the setlists it's written with CK, so now I have my doubts and I tought it would be better to just ask you wise people :)

I just discovered Dancing on the Beach. And shat my pants in the process. Well, that might be an exaggeration, but my love for MGMT has yet again multiplied. The fact that Andrew starts to sing "We wanna make out with all of you" at the end just adds to it. If the song was ever recorded, that would need to be included.

I had a dream that James wrote a book, and he wrote it specifically for MLK, but he was like 'Share it with the public' so he did.
The book was about this lady who had no family, and all of society was taken by the gov to live in these prison things, they even had playgrounds for kids, but the lady had no family, so she started using the place's instruments and she orchestrated really crazy, sad music. So, people would watch her play and that gave her a reason to live. But then the gov let the

I tried, but the bass was too loud! The person that changed the song works with me, and fortunately I am supervisor. I ended up playing Siberian/Metanoia on repeat for around an hour at work tonight. So I think we are square. The customers weren't complaining, either.

So I was really bored this weekend, nothing went right, blah blah blah. So I made this;

Ten things I've Learned from MGMT
1) Contrary to popular belief, I do not, in fact, know Brian Eno.
2) You're a weasel who's lost your touch. However, you are extremely skinny. Kudos to you for that, but it's not enough.
3) I can trust that my head won't bust if I stand by a pillar of hope. Well, it's made of hope but some concrete or cement would be nice, but it doesn't really matter because I'm just having a case of flash delirium.
4) How will I know if it's working? When light confuses, there's isles of bruises, there's mangled lines, there's signs of aging, I'm deceived when I try to feel at all, I want to turn on noise to feed poison, I feel alright as I lay down, assembly lines carry warnings in the form of velvet to a grassy area, and lies are thoroughly clean to the point of which they shine.
5) Cold-blooded claws don't offer anything at all. Not even a little.
6) Whistles can magically untie nooses, no questions asked.
7) Souls, more often than not, are lost in starry voids.
8 ) I am loved in glacial ways, and have tiny voices that speak of their mother's death to concur.
9) Locking our parents out of their living quarters and cutting rugs is very sensible, after all the youth is starting to change.
10) Y'all think of some :)

Bit late on this one but i've only just seen this and properly LOL'd in the office!! Luckily nobody else is here right now!!  :D

Can somebody give me more information about Electric Feel - Ben Allen Sessions?  There isn't much information out there but I have read that it is a rework of the original song with the additional lyrics added.  On the other hand, I have also heard that this is just an earlier demo version of the song and not a rework at all - but that doesn't make much sense because why would Ben Allen's name be attached to it then?  Here's the only information I could really get a hold of and it doesn't seem all that legit http://turnupyourspeakers.com/?tag=ben-allen-sessions (http://turnupyourspeakers.com/?tag=ben-allen-sessions)

I decided to just post a review of the Maribor concert here, I think I`m the sole representative of the country here.

I didn`t think I was gonna be able to see them at all at first, because I didn`t think I`d be able to get any transport (I`m 21, but don`t have a driving license). Luckily though, my sister and her boyfriend decided to take me. We drove to Maribor and arrived in about 2 hours and a half, like I said it was cold and foggy on the roads, we even got a bit lost.
Now, as soon as we got to the main square I saw James get our of a car, and I went OMG!DJFDSKFHSDF!, but I couldn`t go to him cause we were in the middle of the road. Some girls also started screaming for Andrew, but I didn`t see him. They must`ve arrived to the concert site at the same time we did, around 19:30 or something.
We caught the Austrian band Bunny Lake, they have an electro dance rock sound, one girl singer that looked like a taller Lady Gaga and a guy singer that danced like a GQMF. They were fun and played to about 20:30.
And then the monstrosity that was the Italian DID played. They played a bunch of noise for and hour or so, I don`t think the crowd liked them much. I did manage to bag the second row on the right side of the stage, so not at the very center, but I had a good view.

!!!MGMT!!!! started at maybe 22:00, not sure, and they were amazing! They started with It`s Working, and then played Time to Pretend, Destrokk, Weekend Wars, Electric Feel, Flash Delirium, Of Moons, Birds and Monsters (It was divine OMG!!), The Youth, Siberian Breaks, Kids, Brian Eno, and Only a Shadow and Congratulations as an encore. Congratulations was dedicated to a girl called Maja, who I believe was one of the winners of the competition to meet them. It was really nice of them to do that. They sounded great, although some people said the music was too loud, it didn`t seem like that at all to me. Andrew`s voice was great and really clear sounding.

They seemed like they were all in a good mood. They made good contact with the audience, they thanked us after each song, James even once in Slovene (hvala). Andrew said it was cold, bless him, he had the least clothing on and kept breathing into his hands, but he kept smiling a lot <3. Matt was hiding in the background the whole time, Ben was the furthest away from me and before the encore said we made them feel warm inside, even if it was really cold outside <3.

The audience responded to the hits, Brian Eno, The Youth,even Weekend Wars, and Only a Shadow, and we all swayed during Congratulations. At least that how it was up front.

There were some douschebags up front trying to go even further, one tall guy in particular kept harassing some girls for the longest time and distracting me, he was just next to me. The music eventually calmed him down. There was a couple of massive waves, one in the middle of The Youth.
Some chicks somehow got up front during, I think, Siberian Breaks (ruined the flawlessness a bit tbh) , they were right up in my face. During Kids of course, the crowd went wild. I missed more songs though, I seriously thought they`d play at least The Handshake and A Song for Dan Treacy but didn`t. They let out most of the slowies, Pieces of What would`ve really fit well.

After the show, if you read the reports, there was an after party which they all attended. I didn`t go though, my sister and her boyfriend were both tired and really cold so we just left straight away  :'( :'( :'(.
  
I recorded some stuff, the sound is good, but picture is really bad unfortunately. I recorded It`s Working, Destrokk, Flash Delirium, The Youth and my camera ran out of battery during !!Siberian Fucking Breaks!!.

Oh, and I left with Only a Shadow playing in my head.  ;D <3

IS IT RAPES THE HAND OR RAISED THE HAND?!

It's been bothering me for some time now, and I just don't think that an image of a hand raping a hand is appropriate in that song.  Although there is obviously a much deeper meaning, because there always is... but really? Rapes? Even if it is rapes, I think I'll still say raised. Just becuz.

okay so i wasn't going to make a topic for this, since that would be a waste of space so i came here for answers.

I remember watching a live video before of them performing Brian Eno and during the "Brian Peter George St. John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno" part, Andrew takes the microphone off the stand and walks around and does some little spinning pointing gesture at the crowd, then put the mic back on the stand and plays the rest of the song. I cannot find this video ANYWHERE. I could of sworn it was on Saturday Night Live or some late night show, but I can't seem to find it anywhere on youtube. I was really wanting to see this performance again and I was wondering if any of you guys know what I'm talking about.

Maybe I just dreamt this happened...  ???

Oh yeah and MGMT got the 19th best album of 2010, not the 58th haha. it went from 75 to 1 not 1 to 75  ;D

Off the top of my head I can only think of this . . .  but it's not from Brian Eno, so I don't think this is what you mean.  It definitely wasn't Saturday Night Live though.

Hey there  :)  I'm thinking nobody answered because we can't be certain as Time to Pretend didn't come with official lyrics. However, if you are asking for opinions, mine is that he says "rapes".  For me, I can hear Andrew pronounce the "p" when he says the word. Also, it makes more sense to me that way.

If we hold the hand that rapes the hand, and everyone can feel the hand, and nothing's gonna change ~~> To me this means that if you choose to hold on to the thing/person that is hurting you, you are going to keep feeling that hurt and only you can make the change.

Again, this is only my opinion and how I have interpreted, I'm sure it's different for everyone.

I'm guessing at this point we wouldn't know for sure unless someone asked, so yeah that's just my opinion.  It's not that violent if you think about "rape" as just a metaphor - which MGMT lyrics are full of...ambiguity at it's finest.  You can call me Lisa  ;)

I never realized how much I like Electric Feel till today... Of course as always I loved it but just now it stood out as this glorious rhythmic piece of independence. I must be going crazy or something, I need to calm down...

Get this lads: I walked into a party the other day and heard Lady Dada's Nightmare playing. Now it's not exactly my favorite MGMT song but I guess it shows that not all hope in this world is lost.

So I'm trying, hopelessly, to figure out what the profile upgrades on facebook are all about. I click on the "learn more" tab, and at one point it talks about interests that friends may have. It shows some pictures as examples, there's Albert Einstein, Glee, Up, Daft Punk. Then I'm like, "THAT'S THE CONGRATULATIONS COVER 8D !"

It's a really stupid, small thing. But it made my day  ;D

I'm just amazed that idiots like this get to publish and rank their all time favorite albums list. Wait...let me rephrase that, not amazed, just overly and forever disappointed. Is there ever going to be a relevant album ranking?! How do these "music journalists" get hired? Job Requirements: experience in the lack of real musical influence.

Everyone's afraid to be THE ONE that goes out on a limb against what every other critic has said and say, "This album was excellent."  Music magazines have always made me mad because they all have the same thing to say about albums.  I don't want to hear the same thing, I want to hear what you really think.  SPIN actually had some great things to say about Congratulations giving it an 8/10 and then there is everyone else....

Is that site serious, or kinda like a joke, because they said that Congratulations flopped because there wasn't remake of Kids and Time to Pretend? Why people keep complaining about that anyway??

Besides the album art is so rad, I love the colours. Even if I wouldn't be listening to MGMT, I'd still like it.

This post is to Falala...not to be an ass or anything but you have to remember that everything in the media is opinionated. Just because you or everyone else on this board for that matter thinks "this album was excellent" (congratulations) doesn't mean that is the only answer that should be accepted. Don't get me wrong, I love MGMT, they are one of my favorite bands of all time. But I see it a lot on this board and it kind of irks me. Even though I think MGMT is amazing, I realize that there are some people out there, i.e. music critics, that like Nickelback and Creed. I consider those bands horrible, but that doesn't mean that they are. Some of you complain that people should be more open minded about MGMT, but I also think that some of these MGMT fans should be more open minded and accept some of the negatives that critics have to say about the band. It kind of makes me angry that some of you become so offended when MGMT isn't considered the greatest band in the world by critics or magazines. WE are fans of MGMT, others are not.

^I understand, and agree... I'd love MGMT to be even more critically acclaimed but there are other music tastes in the world. But I hate closed minded comments like one my mom made a bit ago... my little sis' friend is over so I was saying how I try to get people into MGMT but they look it up, see the vid for Kids, and go 'I'm scared of them' xD But my mom goes 'It is freaky. Kind of dumb cuz it's just weirdness.' I thought No, it's intellectual art, you don't have to like it but don't be ignorant.

YOU ASS!!!!  jk, jk...I appreciate your point, but this is an MGMT forum and we support them and believe that their shit doesn't stink....well, except maybe Andrew's.  You need to understand that we've read every erroneous article out there these year and there are dozens and dozens.  Granted, some of that is due very much to Andrew and Ben's piss takes and they brought it on themselves.  I get their sarcasm and irony, yet I still cringe when I hear them make certain statements because I know it's going to be twisted and misconstrued.  When I read the crap that pitchfork and NME wrote last Spring that was riddled with errors, I wasn't surprised to see their year end best of lists.  I still believe that they're wrong and history will prove this.  You might be surprised to know that my number 2 and 3 album choices for 2010 are very close to my number 1.  I don't blindly support MGMT.  I have a lot more time listening to music and critiquing it than you do and my opinions are extremely well educated and thought out.  I definitely think that people need to be more open minded about MGMT.  Frankly, most of the reviews that came out in March/April seemed to have been written before listening to the album.  I don't see or hear any negatives about this band, except maybe that they could be more attractive.

Those boys and their unattractiveness.  Good thing they are excellent musicians.  I'm sorry I can't even be sarcastic on this one...they have all been blessed with wonderful genes and are so nice to look at.   

I don't think it's the only answer that is accepted, but on a forum dedicated to MGMT you are going to run into some people that will disagree with you.  If you're here, you probably feel pretty passionately for the music and are going to stick up for them.  I consider the critiques but I don't have to like them or agree with them.  It's like telling someone that their child is ugly or something...you don't see it because you feel so much love towards them.

when people post things on this forum saying that critics should be more open minded about MGMT, or when people complain about certain magazines/sites giving Congratulations bad reviews, it's not so much that they think they have some sort of superior music taste and everyone should agree with them or even that anyone is suggesting that everone should love MGMT. I see it as just part of supporting the band, and as their forum, it's kind of our job to be their number one fans and to stand up and bash the haters a little.

Not to be an ass or anything but this is an MGMT forum right? Of course we're going to be defensive about this band! We realize that not everyone is going to like the band, thats fine but that's not going to stop us from voicing our opinions about it. This is an internet forum dedicated to a single band, most of the members here are very much into this band and support this band in everything they do. We love the music and the band as a whole and want them to succeed in everything they do and want them to be around for quite a while. I'm also confused as to why you are addressing this to Lala in the beginning when you go on to make it sound like you're talking to more of us, not just Lala. Lala is one of our nicest members and a huge mgmt fan, she puts a lot of time and effort into this forum/band so if you're trying to start something your not going to make a good impression on this forum. I'm very open minded in my musical taste, I've played music my whole life and studied music business in college, I've been places most people on here never will and know a lot about the industry so I feel like I can have an educated opinion on whether or not a band is good. We all come from various backgrounds on here and I feel like most of us have the knowledge to judge music.

Alright now lets get back to chatting about how amazing mgmt is! ;D

Lol, ok ok ok!!!! I really like this band and I think its cool to get on here and read things, but...I'm really not meant for these forums. No offense but some of you are honestly crazy. I mean I love to get stoned and listen to their music and I think its some of the most beautiful art-form type of music since Pink Floyd, but it really seems like some of you eat, sleep, and breathe this band. Like obsessed, it's kind of scary to be honest. I really just wanted to add to a point of conversation and it just ended up weird! And Shra i wasn't trying to start something, sorry if I offended you. I will probably never post on this forum again, but rather watch some of these crazy conversations. Its funny how mad people get when you post something where is shouldn't be. Just silly stuff to me.

....And I'm sure this will start another strange round of conversation for some....

Heehee, well you gotta remember, this is the MGMT forum... and even then there's a whole Music section where users frequently talk about the millions of other artists they're into.

When I was just starting up here I was informed that they are not obsessed, but passionate. And after my time here I've learned there is indeed a difference, and it's significant.

That is completely absurd.  We MGMT fans are upstanding citizens of the world.  We hold jobs, we go to school, we have friends, family, puppies, and kittens.  We listen to an extensive variety of music, and can appreciate other people's views on the band's work.  But I can see why you are above all of this.  You must have a BUNCH of friends who listen to MGMT.  You can chat about amazing music in the flesh, whereas we have to send our message out into cyberspace hoping someone hears us.  So quit insulting us for discussing things we enjoy, you pompous brat.

I think I can for the most part for live stuff (some recordings, I can)
I love Ben's singing voice so much. I can't tell you how much I'm in love with Time To Pretend on Abbey Road
Also, I do see the whole Andrew being comfortable thing! I have to say my favorite singing style has to be the high pitched thing he does  :-X haha

I can't believe you just said this!!!  gulsah...I've always been fond of you but now we share a Ben's voice on Abbey Road TTP passion!!!!

I do too!  I love that video because we really get to hear Ben sing. I always wondered if they would ever do a song where Ben is the lead, that would be really cool.  I also agree on Andrew's higher pitched singing, those tend to be my favorite live at least.

I just got goosebumps reading that, so obviously it has the same effect on me.

I know what you mean, it's angelic. But the whole song makes me want to melt. Sighhh.

I love that he said 'people don't listen for themselves anymore, including me.' That's a perfect description of the musical world right now. Which is sad. There are a select few that have an insight to what listening to music is really about. And he's right to say he's a part of it, because I think everyone's a part of it in some way, although some much more than others. What a wise man. Also, 'I don't understand what the fuck there is not to be into'... Golden.  :D

Nice find, Lisa.

Sure, and thanks. :) That same part also grabbed my attention...people need to listen for themselves and have their own opinions.  I really wish albums would stop being compared to their artists' previous ones or even similar artists' albums and judged solely on what that specific album is offering.  Music evolves people.  I love Bradford even more now.

Maybe this is just me but in Siberian Breaks, the line "I hope I die before I get sold"= goosebumps.

The line in itself is great and I think also what it tells us about MGMT. Obviously a reference to "I hope I die before I get old." in The Who's 'My Generation' it highlights all the musical references to older pshc./classic rock bands, it's also the kind of dark yet witty humour that we've come to expect from them. So much more but I don't really feel like writing, it's funny how much that one line adds to the song  :)

I came to this thread to ask about the new EP. I was very surprised, I saw in the the 'listening to' thread and had no idea! It came out over a week ago too, apparently  :-X Definitely need to get on it a.s.a.p.

The January/February issue of SPIN (Best of 2010) has a "Rewind 2010" section which includes "Dirty Projectiles: What have you been smacked in the face with while performing in 2010?  Take this quiz and find out."   If you answer "YES" to "Is it a #1?" it leads you to a box that says, "You are MGMT drummer Will Berman, who was allegedly nailed with a bottle of urine in Manchester, England, and left the stage in a huff, but later insisted it was beer."

Oh SPIN.....

I think we've seen the Egyptian Pharoh shirt (worn on their first Letterman appearance) on a few people but it's almost definitely Andrew's - it says 'MEMPHIS' on.

And we know that the 'supercollider' shirt is definitely Ben's  :D

I just want to say that MGMT re-opened my musical universe.  The last time I was seriously into music was the early 90's and then college/work/marriage got in the way and I became disconnected from music. Discovering them makes me feel alive again.

I love this post ❤

I've been thinking of different things they could do for their next album cover, since the scratch-off idea was so cool. Maybe glow-in-the-dark or some sort of design that only shows under a black light or the booklet made out of hemp paper.  8) Any ideas?

They could buy into the whole 3D trend going on lately and make the cover 3D (special MGMT 3D glasses included). :D

^Awesome ideas, but the singing card style has been made. I just saw a video of Jack White showing the new records of his Third Man shop, and there was a vinyl with that function. With MGMT though, that would be even cooler! But I'd also love to see a 3D cover with special glasses  8)

The contrast is what's so brilliant.  It's like scratching of a curtain to get a peek inside what they were doing in Malibu....that's what so much of the Beatles photography was like as well-a peek inside.

I think you convinced me to scratch my album! I actually already have two copies of Congratulations, because I accidentally found the 'normal' version on sale in local supermarket and I felt a bit sad that it was so cheap so I had to buy it.  ;)
And having the normal and the limited version, I thought of scratching the cover. But there's a slight colour difference in them, and I prefer the colours of the scratch one...

Is it really worth it?  ???

Btw, as people are here talking about scratching the cover, then if everybody scrathes theirs there won't be any unscratched left.

I don't know what to think about Illuminati but I've seen Andrews necklace that close that I think I could figure it's a triangle with two crossed 'shepherd sticks' (lol I have no clue what to call them!  :D ) in it, that's what I think I might've seen in it. It was on some interview where the interviewer asked Andrew to show it closer to the camera. I don't remember what interview it was though or where... But I might've got the necklace all wrong though :P

I've researched it a lot. At first I thought it was Egyptian, because at first glance you'd imagine it to be. A triangle, two crossed Crooks, the heart in hand above it... But after much, much reading, I think I have pinpointed it to be a Officers Jewel for the I.O.O.F. At first I thought it was Masonic, because much of their regalia is very similar. http://www.masonicexchange.com/Sub-Masonic-Officer-Jewels-9.aspx (http://www.masonicexchange.com/Sub-Masonic-Officer-Jewels-9.aspx) However, I haven't come across any Masonic items with the Heart in Hand, but tons of Odd Fellow regalia has it. And that is as far as I have come.

So this is random, but Im curious if anyone knows. On the Wiki page for 'Congratulations' it says that Ben was on Omnichord for the album. Do you guys possibly know which songs? It sounds like there's some Omnichord in 'It's Working' and it also sounds like it's in 'Congratulations' but Im not sure.

Also, does he have an omnichord sound on his keyboard, or does he actually have an omnichord??? I would think if it was on the keyboard it wouldn't have been blatantly stated that he played the omnichord on the album. I dunno....Im pretty much fascinated by the instrument.

I love James' "OK" and "HOLY SHIT" and then Andrew's "HO. SHIT." In fact I especially adore James in that vid. "ENCORE, M-G-M-T" he's so fucking beast and that vid totally shows it!

And you know how at the beginning of the vid you can hear the very end of Kids playing? I just love that sound.... somehow they made Kids better....

Really? Why the heck did I think it stood for entertainment? Lol I really wonder where I even got that from then xD It still doesn't change a whole lot though.

Basically, let me put it this way - New Music Express didn't introduce me to MGMT - kinda the other way around. When I saw NME bragging on about MGMT I thought it was cool that they were. But I knew MGMT long before NME started the raving, at least, too long for a New Music magazine/website. NME follows the trends and that's why people think they're so amazing - they should be starting the fads. Or at least encouraging new ones.
Title: Re: Random MGMT Thoughts
Post by: audrey palmer on January 01, 2011, 01:35:42 AM
"NME bands" fall within very narrow parameters. In the 80s, the paper prided itself on its coverage of hip hop, R&B and the emerging dance scene which it took seriously and featured prominently - alongside the usual Peel-endorsed indie fare. Now, though, its range of approved bands has dramatically shrunk to a strand embodied by the [Arctic] Monkeys, Babyshambles and Muse - bands who you don't need specialist knowledge to write about and who are just "indie" enough to make readers feel they're part of a club. Like everything else in publishing, this particular direction must be in response to reader demand, but it doesn't half make for a self-limiting magazine.

This was a criticism of the magazine that a writer from one of the UK's leading newspapers gave of the NME and I think it's very true.

Having read the magazine for around 2/3 years I feel that I can say this is true of it. They do often try to start to 'hype' next big things but they often try to go for obscure genres in a bid to make themselves the 'pioneers' of such things. In the last few years, with the constant re-designs of the magazine, along with the statistics, it's been obvious that they're trying desperately to raise their circulation but it's still falling.
I find the editorial view of the magazine hard to follow. As always it is written by many people, this is something to keep in mind whilst reading, yet it is confusing to see them absolutely laying into an act one week and then praising them or covering them repeatedly in the next issue. It is often hard to find content without bias or much opinion - fair enough, one is not reading Wikipedia, yet this makes it hard to seperate the facts. They also rarely describe the music well in reviews, covering this up with obscure references.

The magazine is very much stuck in their own little 'British indie rock bubble' which in my opinion is somewhat of a 'malaise' in the British music scene. Yes Oasis are 'legends' but they need to move on.

Enough of this anyway, you know how we feel about going off-topic on this forum  ;)

Paige it's so true... lol this forum's so smart! I'm unsure how to react to it.

I just hated looking at NME's recap of their #1 artists since they began and of course I couldn't wait to get to 2008 to see our boys and their small caption was "Though their second album gave mixed thoughts and disappointed many, we all can agree that Oracular Spectacular was amazing" OBVIOUSLY NME IS UNAWARE OF A PARTICULAR FANBASE

That last bit deserves a rewrite - ''Though their second album gave narrow-minded critics and sellout magazines mixed thoughts and disappointed many generic-loving music listeners, we at the forum can all agree that Congratulations is amazing.'' That's better.  :)

I want to see them live too so much! I'm putting my hopes on them going to Japan on summer, because that's where I'll probably be.

Yeah I know they toured last year at festivals, but those are always in America or England... I live in Finland :p And I believe that the Strokes have never been here, in Sweden they have I think, but at those times I was too young to travel alone or had no money. Yeah they'll most definately go to Japan again, but maybe not next summer.

To get back on the real topic here, MGMT played here once I think in 2008, but at that time I didn't listen to them :p Now that they're not popular enough I assume they'll never come here again. :'(
So I went to Oslo to see them 2010

I keep seeing questions on Y!A (I have an account..I SWEAR it's only for emergency questions) about who Andrew is dating..they're like "OMGZ ANDREW IS TOTES DATING FABIOLLA GATTI," or whatever the hell her name is...then they give who's dated who as the proof. I mean one, it's a stupid site, two who cares, three just listen to the music. Jesus Christ.

that video is probably the biggest of teases...I feel my heart in my stomach every time it abruptly cuts to the title.

It says "Coming Soon" which is like, the biggest lie ever. That YouTube vid was posted on October 10th. Soon would've been, like, a month later.

So frustrating!

Apparently soon means "not in the next 5 months"

Here's something random.

I saw on Wesleyan's site that they have this event called 'Sons and Daughters' where I believe alumni are invited back, I think? It has something to do with alumni. Anyway, it made me wonder if this is what the guys are referencing to in Congrats...I always thought they just simply meant sons and daughters...of city officials...interesting to think if they were referencing an annual event held at their alma mater...

yeah, neither did I. here's the link. and I was wrong about how it's for alumni. it's sponsored by them, but not for them.

I never hear MGMT played in stores/public." But it gets even better. It was followed by Song for Dan Treacy, and I realized they were playing the whole album! It was amazing, definitely made my day. I had to leave a few minutes into Siberian Breaks though, which made me sad =/. Must've been weird to shop to Lady Dada though...

Yeah it's weird, I've heard it before, if you listen to it with headphones (mine at least anyways lol) it stands out a little more. I've always wondered what it was supposed to be. A lot of people have called it "monster voice" but it sounds to me like a robot  :D Maybe they were just playing around with effects? *shrug*

ha I'm sure that would've been interesting. awhile ago at school this guy was getting into his car as I was walking to mine, and when he turned on his car Future Reflections came blasting through his speakers. I wanted to stop and become his friend right then and there, but...he already drove away...
oh, I was going to come and ask if you guys saw the violin thing at Sundance but I saw that Abby has retweeted from @Destrokkers :D
it's awesome!!

You know you play violin hardcore when your bow strings are coming off...thanks for the video!

I feel like showing this to my 9 year old sister as inspiration. I taught her the basic Kids melody already, and she can't stop playing it...muahaha

Is Matt also a photographer?

Because I happened to find this super long interview of Chairlift's Caroline Polachek and photographer for the interview is credited 'Matthew Asti'. I think Asti isn't that common last name and also with Matt(hew), plus the boys do sometimes mention Chairlift in their interviews :P

My electric eel is a happy meal

There is a beam of light, lost inside of my mi(nd)-i know
And if it works, it works... if not you have to let it go
I walked into your life, reaching out for something real
&now I'll spend my time unlocking on Electric--

I was just listening to Congratulations and when it ended I said aloud, "Damn it, I wish this album was more than nine songs long." I have the same feeling about OS and the EPs. :D I know they were contractually obligated to keep Congrats in the 40 minute range so MGMT will probably be the same. I'm hoping they can persuade the record label to let them do a double album. That would be rock hard full of awesomeness. :D

I think I've found a whistle (whatever it is supposed to mean) but at least this is quite literal:
I just realized that my boyfriend is always wearing a whistle necklace.
Plus today he suddenly said that he wants to live in a castle!
He doesn't even listen to MGMT!
If he'll start talking about dogs and beaches I'll pass out...

Sorry, this is only vaquely related to MGMT, but still is and I wanted to share ;)

I just realized that if I were ever trapped on a desert island with my own tribe of misfit orphan children and we started out own colony, I could ttoslly use Oracular Spectacular in its entirety as the national anthem.... and probably the pledge of allegiance as well :P

So, I was in FYE, just browsing. I found Congratulations and immediately bought it (I'm a horrible impulse buyer, but this is worth it ;) ) I only had cash on me and was literally counting dimes and pennies to buy it. I apologised to the guy at the register, 'cause he was having to re-count all the change, saying, "Sorry, I just REALLY want this cd!" And he says, "Oh, don't worry, this album is great! I'm gonna play it on the intercom once my manager leaves!"

Made my day  ;D

Reminds me of one time I was in a Hot Topic in I think Baltimore, and the I asked a girl working there if they had MGMT shirts and she goes "yeah right here" and started talking to me all about them and if I heard the new CD yet and everything... it was rad xD

We were in Hot Topic when Sizzle was here this summer and I was like, Oh look-they have an MGMT shirt.  It was the one with the cryptic design so it's hard to tell what it is.  The chick working there was really impressed-she was like, I'm really surprised that you know that's MGMT-it took us forever to figure it out.  Sizzle was giggling the whole time and when we walked out she said, "I just wanted to yell at her-Do you know who you're talking to?!?!?!?   This is the HBIC!!!!!!!"  :D

Well the Hot Topic near me (we were on vacation when that story happened, psh like I can get into a music convo with someone from Jax) doesn't have MGMT shirts anymore, I'm lucky I got the one I did for Xmas, it was on the clearance rack. It's that cryptic one lala was talking about. I wouldn't have known it was an MGMT shirt if they hadn't written out MGMT over the blocky-letters on the plastic thing covering the shirts on display.

I'd been gawking at that shirt for all of 2010 lol, so happy I got it!

Yes! I heard the piano start and was like "noooooo waayyyyy" and kinda freaked out. My Grandpa is here talking to us and I was trying not to be loud. And then I grabbed my phone so I can come here... :D So I think its safe to say they're going to sing it for the show...

The surprise of their set was when Ke$ha and her groupies pushed their way onto the stage and broke into dance.

Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser didn't seem phased and continued on with their blissful set.

All of a sudden the Kids Quartet from Climbing to New Lows came on and we just thought it was the funniest thing ever. We laighed that insane laugh where it hurts and your crying but it felt so good.Midterms are coming up so its been pretty stressful. It was really simple but it was beautiful and it reminded me of the same feeling I remember I got when I first listened to MGMT. It was a special day :)

however. i've just heard of the earthquake in Japan and i must say i'm kind of shocked. i mean, wth is going on with the world? floods in Australia, earthquakes in New Zealand and Japan...and the fact that our guys are in that part of the world is somehow frustrating me -.-
and all the other people....:( i mean it's very much possible that about two weeks ago, a guy from japan went to see mgmt and had a great time, but now he's homeless or even something worse..maybe we should create a thread for all of the victims of natural disasters or something like that...i don't know, i just feel bad for all of them...

For instance one time last year I was at Six Flags and I was wearing the hot dog one and this guy walks by and says "M-G-M-T? what the fuck does that mean" and then pulled up his belt buckle and walked on like a cowboy xD Then people always stare at the tetris one trying to see what it's saying

Not sure if you guys are still discussing about the necklace thing, but I was curious as well and asked this guy on tumblr who is a freemason if he had seen anything similar to that symbol, and this is what he answered:

"Anonymous asked: http://i55.tinypic.com/14o1zm8.jpg Have you seen this symbol or know anything about it?

What you’re looking at is a jewel for Lodge Officers. Though it’s more commonly associated with freemasonry, jewels are also used by other fraternal orders (the oddfellows and knights of columbus use these as well).

The officer’s jewel is worn around a sash and is symbolic of his role in the lodge. A Secretary, who takes news, notes and other records, has a jewel of two quill pens, symbolic of his role as recorder for he lodge.

Though I look terribly goofy here, you’ll noticed that I have a jewel hanging from the sash around my shoulders:
http://daysrunaway.tumblr.com/post/2411084536/okay-so-this-is-the-last-one-of-me-i-made-the

This is the jewel of the Pursuivant for a Royal Arch Mason chapter.  The Pursuivant is the interior guard who responds to knocks at the door. I have a sword and my jewel is that of a triangle with two crossed swords, symbolic of my guardian duties.

So you have, essentially, a fraternal jewel.

I’ve not seen two crossed staffs so my guess is that it’s not masonic. It could be of a number of orders as, throughout history, there have been many that have utilized the effective officer roles of freemasonry to suite their own needs."

Mmmmm I don't know.......

I'm a Greg Dulli/Afghan Whigs fan and I was listening to the new Twilight Singers album today. I was curious if Dulli likes MGMT so I googled it, and found this old pitchfork interview. Ignoring the dumbass comments by pitchfork, I was happy to see how much praise he has for them  :)

GD: [...] I also like MGMT.

Pitchfork: Really? I think they're terrible. Except for that one song, "Time to Pretend".

GD: You don't like "Electric Feel"? "Electric Feel" is killer, man. That song is the shit. I like them, I like Yeasayer. Who else do I like right now? I don't know if I could find myself really listening to their records that much, but I found myself at a Brightblack Morning Light concert with these crazy kaleidoscope 3D glasses that they gave out at the show. I did smoke some reefer at that show and I totally dug it. Give MGMT another...I feel the backlash coming on those guys.

Pitchfork: I've been trying, man. Everybody loves 'em.

GD: They're good-looking kids. I saw them on "David Letterman" and they wore Dracula capes and I was like, sweet. Drummer even in a Dracula cape, sweet. They seem tentative live.

Pitchfork: They're terrible live.

GD: The heavy hand of Dave Fridmann is all over their record, you know. But they'll figure it out. I think they'll be very good and I think they'll be very good for a while.


Dulli was prescient about the backlash.

hey thewhistle and ah, ya im right there with you...my ex's family lives over there. but i see it alot where people have lost their compassion and gratitude. and it makes it hard to be here sometimes. but then just like that.. someone i know posts something on his facebook page that helps me remember that "this" is what its all about: his friend sent him a message that he received from his cousin that lives in japan. oh and if this is the wrong place to post please just ya know bitch slap me and say not here but here. and ever so politely direct me to the more better place to post. :D thanks!

Nick James Shared this with me Today:
16 March at 08:03
I received this from a friend this morning and felt I should share with you. Blessings.

From my cousin in Sendai, Japan where she has lived for the past decade teaching English. Very moving!!

Hello My Lovely Family and Friends,
First I want to thank you so very much for your concern for me. I am very touched. I also wish to apologize for a generic message to you all. But it seems the best way at the moment to get my message to you.
Things here in Sendai have been rather surreal. But I am very blessed to have wonderful friends who are helping me a lot. Since my shack is even more worthy of that name, I am now staying at a friend's home. We share supplies like water, food and a kerosene heater. We sleep lined up in one room, eat by candlelight, share stories. It is warm, friendly, and beautiful.
During the day we help each other clean up the mess in our homes. People sit in their cars, looking at news on their navigation screens, or line up to get drinking water when a source is open. If someone has water running in their home, they put out sign so people can come to fill up their jugs and buckets.
Utterly amazingly where I am there has been no looting, no pushing in lines. People leave their front door open, as it is safer when an earthquake strikes. People keep saying, "Oh, this is how it used to be in the old days when everyone helped one another."

Quakes keep coming. Last night they struck about every 15 minutes. Sirens are constant and helicopters pass overhead often.

We got water for a few hours in our homes last night, and now it is for half a day. Electricity came on this afternoon. Gas has not yet come on. But all of this is by area. Some people have these things, others do not. No one has washed for several days. We feel grubby, but there are so much more important concerns than that for us now. I love this peeling away of non-essentials. Living fully on the level of instinct, of intuition, of caring, of what is needed for survival, not just of me, but of the entire group.

There are strange parallel universes happening. Houses a mess in some places, yet then a house with futons or laundry out drying in the sun.
People lining up for water and food, and yet a few people out walking their dogs. All happening at the same time.

Other unexpected touches of beauty are first, the silence at night. No cars. No one out on the streets. And the heavens at night are scattered with stars. I usually can see about two, but now the whole sky is filled.
The mountains are Sendai are solid and with the crisp air we can see them silhouetted against the sky magnificently.
And the Japanese themselves are so wonderful. I come back to my shack to check on it each day, now to send this e-mail since the electricity is on, and I find food and water left in my entranceway. I have no idea from whom, but it is there. Old men in green hats go from door to door checking to see if everyone is OK. People talk to complete strangers asking if they need help. I see no signs of fear. Resignation, yes, but fear or panic, no.
They tell us we can expect aftershocks, and even other major quakes, for another month or more. And we are getting constant tremors, rolls, shaking, rumbling. I am blessed in that I live in a part of Sendai that is a bit elevated, a bit more solid than other parts. So, so far this area is better off than others. Last night my friend's husband came in from the country, bringing food and water. Blessed again.
Somehow at this time I realize from direct experience that there is indeed an enormous Cosmic evolutionary step that is occurring all over the world right at this moment. And somehow as I experience the events happening now in Japan, I can feel my heart opening very wide. My brother asked me if I felt so small because of all that is happening. I don't. Rather, I feel as part of something happening that much larger than myself. This wave of birthing (worldwide) is hard, and yet magnificent.
Thank you again for your care and Love of me,
With Love in return, to you all.

NOTE from Nick:
These times bring us together, uniting our differences and awakening the truth that we are all one. There is nothing to fear, there is only the knowing that we are all Divine, all Children of God, on a journey back to Source.
My love, gratitude and peace to All of Creation. Blessings.
Lovelight

hey thewhistle and ah, ya im right there with you...my ex's family lives over there. but i see it alot where people have lost their compassion and gratitude. and it makes it hard to be here sometimes. but then just like that.. someone i know posts something on his facebook page that helps me remember that "this" is what its all about: his friend sent him a message that he received from his cousin that lives in japan. oh and if this is the wrong place to post please just ya know bitch slap me and say not here but here. and ever so politely direct me to the more better place to post. :D thanks!
...


i created a new thread for such things, i'd love it if you post it there :) http://mgmtforum.com/index.php?topic=9047.msg249036#msg249036 (and everyone else too :) )

For the last six months or so I've been trying to convince my brother that MGMT are not an electro band, and I don't know what more I can do because he's still not unconvinced. I mean, he's listened to the two albums (he prefers Congratulations), he's watched all their videos (even Boogie Down and Destrokk); he even wanted to start shit one day and said that the drummer of his favorite band (which I like as well) is a much better drummer then Will ( :o), so I played the video of The Handshake on KCRW and he just sat there unimpressed.

Last night as part of an agreement where I'd watch a full concert of his favorite band if he did the same for MGMT, I chose the Paris, Bataclan gig, and about halfway through he said, "So far I haven't heard one rock song."  >:( He even said that they could be compared to the Beach Boys in the way that they are "bubblegum pop" which to my brother equates as utterly mindless, bullshit.  >:( Afterward, I asked he for his criteria for what makes a rock band or a rock song, and he said he'd play a song by either Slipknot or Metallica as example (???), and I said forget about it. Later on though, I was watching a performance where Will was wearing his HEAVY METAL shirt and I said, "MGMT aren't rock, they're HEAVY METAL!!", while pointing at his shirt. :D I still don't think that did any good, because my brother would expect that if any of them were to wear a shirt like that they could at least try to sound metal. *eye roll*

Yeah, and what suprised me about his comment is that he doesn't even like Slipknot that much. I mean, I do like (early) Metallica, as well as some other metal bands, but I just don't get this whole ellitism thing, like if you don't headbang though the whole gig, have 10 minute power solos in every song or scream like a hell-demon then you can't be considered rock.

I love rock and metal, mgmt arent rock. More or less psychedellic rock would be more accurate. Will's "heavy metal" shirt is a shirt for the movie "heavy metal" Although Will and I have had a chat about metal and we like a lot of the same bands, slayer, megadeath, pantera, sepulrura, testamit, fear factory. I would consider bands such as Metallica, black sabbath, rob zombie, rammstein, rock.

It's so hard to really pinpoint what rock is in this day and age. When rock was first "invented" it was very pop driven, there's no way you can compare 1950's rock with today. It's branched out into so many sub genre's it's nearly impossible to judge what truly is rock today.

Rock was born in Memphis and is the offspring of the blues. Hot funk, cool punk, even if it's old junk, it's still rock and roll to me.

Also, if you consider MGMT's music Psychedelic rock, it's still very much so "rock". In fact, Psychedelic rock is considered to have been the bridge between early blues rock and metal, actually.

Post by: -Rose- on March 21, 2011, 03:43:37 PM
My brother read my post and thought I completely misunderstood him. He insisted I post this response on his behalf:

"First of all, I don't dislike MGMT. I think they are a solid band. When I say they are like the Beach Boys in 'pop style', it's because they both have a relaxing sound which is all right since the music is still pleasant, and the lyrics are interesting. Shra and lala brought up a good point about music genres can be subjective. Personally, I like any genre as long as it is worthwhile (from Metallica to Led Zeppelin to the Beatles to Bob Dylan to classical like Richard Wagner and Beethoven). The reason I wanted to respond is because I absolutely hate when people think that I am being 'superior' or label me as someone with an 'ego', because I didn't mean it that way.

Just because they aren't my favorite band doesn't mean they are 'electro' or 'utterly, mindless bullshit'. They are certainly a hell of a lot better than a lot of bands. If you still have the same view of me as a musical elitist, then listen to a song by my favorite band: Lacuna Coil - "Falling Again" and tell me if genre ultimately matters when liking music. It doesn't when the music works in the aspects of melody, lyric, vocal delivery, and emotion. That's what makes great music."

Lots of rock sub-genres are experiencing revivals these days but with an electronic twist.

Folk rock has evolved from its Dylan traditions into the freak-folk scene ala Devendra Banhart.
Punk rock has its roots in making political statements with The Clash and their ilk.  But few bands are making overt social commentary these days.
Metal, in my mind, means virtuoso guitarists and vocalists such as Judas Priest and Iron Maiden.
There is glam rock (Bowie, Velvet Underground), prog rock (Peter Gabriel, Genesis), surf rock (Beach Boys, anyone?) and blues-based rock n' roll ala The Rolling Stones.

All of these are rock. It doesn't do the genre as a whole any good to say one is more 'rock' than the other.  As a rock fan, you try to experience and appreciate as much as you can. It's not just about having guitar, bass and drums. If I had to define what rock is, I would say it is a musical experiment that is constantly pushing the boundaries. And that is exactly what MGMT is doing. Metanoia is a perfect example of that.

I've NEVER heard MGMT in a car until today. I gave my sister my normal copy of Congrats (since I had special edition but I have this weird urge to get the regular copy back :'[ ), But, whenever I'm in the car she has it turned WAYYYYYY down. Today, my friend told me to bring music in her car so I brought Oracular (best friend told me to put that instead of Congrats). MY GOSH! I now know why I think that album is awesome... because it fucking is :']
I've never acted the way I did in a car like that... I kept closing my eyes and dancing all funky... I just... I can't. haha!
I know this is really random and weird. It's like... I listen to both their albums CONSTANTLY and think they both are truly amazing, but, it felt so different in the car! I can't even explain because... it didn't really *spark* anything. IDK. I'm being weird right now and rambling as usual. It's 2 AM and I have nothing better than to tell you guys nothing important and something you all already know about the albums.


Something else to add, my friend from Venezuela tells me that they are constantly played on the telle :]

Same for me! The first time I listened OS in the car was a so different than any other time before. Hearing the beginning of TTP make me smile so wide. It sounded so much more epic, like I was completely enveloped by the sound. It probably had something to do with the fact that we were driving through miles and miles of Wyoming plains and fields as it was blasting, the windows were down and me I singing/shouting every word at the top of my lungs. :D I am in no way a religious person but I think this was one of the most spiritual experiences I've ever had, it was like everything in the universe was lined up and connected, it's beauty revealed in a way that doesn't happen too often. 

I suggest it to everyone that hasn't done it, though make sure to be the passenger, cause otherwise you might get so distracted by rocking out and get into an accident, and that would be terrible.  :(

That reminds me of the time that my son mentioned that he was using a quote from TTP in his 8th grade graduation speech and Caitlyn (A-sexra) asked him, Which bit, the part about shooting heroin and fucking with the stars or choking on your vomit?  I ❤ Caitlyn  :D

It's one thing when I hear it on satellite radio and they just silence heroin, fuck, cocaine, etc. It's another when I'm watching them on Palladia and they warp the video to skip those parts which RUINS the song to pieces.

I don't think this belongs here but this quote made me smile so much!

“We try to do it in a more unconventional, less corporate means, we’d rather do it through a message board that we maintain ourselves, than through something big and corporate like Facebook,” Andrew explains. “In general, we have like, a big community board that has kind of taken off on its own, which is really cool. We kind of encourage more ‘real’ relationships between people,” he says proudly.

A quote from Pete-if you don't follow his thread.

I dont remember where this fits in post-wise ,m so feel free to re-file it , but on the 'Between the liners' / 'forest elf' thing . And the posting thereof.
 I guess it might b being used as part of the fan club releases they're planning . not sure if they anounced the plans for it yet , but i think theres some sort of cool fan club releases planned . I submitted a few differant bits for it . it looks like a cool idea they got going on . anyways , thats why I been holding off

I've paid for Oracular twice... because I lost my first copy :'( :'( :'( :'( I feel so STUPID every time I think about it. I blame my teacher. She told us to bring in something we collect (which is a dumb assignment anyways cuz not everybody collects things so the best thing I thought of was CDs since we have tons of 'em) and I brought in my OS CD which, duh, being in middle school at the time, was not with me by the end of the day.

Then I guess technically I've bought Congrats twice. I mean, I have the scratch off edition from the preorder sales, and then I have the scratchoff vinyl edition.

Though everything Congrats was bought from my parents, lol.

The reason I'm not sure is because I read their is a strict limit of only 2000 copies. Yikes!  :-\

Grateful to any replies.  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Being that it's not "Sold Out" and you can add it to your cart... I think it's safe to say that they have copies left :]

EDIT; also... on the stash thing... I hope each of them have different styles HA

yup so i made andrew vanwyngarden the president of my "country" for a group project in history class. part time president, part time rockstar. im pretty sure i was the only one who knew MGMT (my group members were a bit opposed to it but i did a lot of the work so idc lol) so it was just a little joke with myself, essentially. i tried to see if anyone even knew anything by them and played "Kids" but everyone's face was blank, hahaha. i should have played something else, then.. but w/e. i only had like 3 mins to pick. The country is called Rialta, and it's essentially a paradise for the modern hippie

That's a cool order. I like Congratulations cuz it's a mixup of the feeling of each song. Oracular Spectacular (I know I could shorten it but I freakin' love that album title) isn't mixed enough I don't think. But I also understand like how you just described, starting with Kids and Time to Pretend and then ending kinda slower (that doesn't seem like the right word but whatever) cuz it's like taking you through moods.

Future Reflections is my favorite song by MGMT at the moment and it has been since like November, so I couldn't agree more - it is the PERFECT ending to Oracular Spectacular.

I think Congratulations sums up the album at the end, as well, very perfectly.

I think the entire Congratulations album would make a great rock opera, whenever I listen to it, it feels like i'm traveling the world. I don't know how to describe it, from the very beginning I can imagine myself lost in an urban city area, and then eventually ending up at a beach, and then venturing off into the ocean and then ending up in the arctic tundra, then traveling over mountains and then finally going into the desert at the end of the album, just like in the Congratulations music video.

I think turning an entire album into an rock opera instead of just making individual music videos for individual singles is great idea, because that way it would encourage people to buy the entire album instead of just downloading singles. But i'm sure it would cost a ton of money to produce something like that, but I think MGMT defiantly has the talent for it, and bands like MGMT only come around once in a lifetime. 

I would much rather see an MGMT rock opera than this camp MGMT thing that's supposed to be coming out, we've been waiting for it for so long i've kind of lost interest in it.

I know many softwers that can record the screen as a video but have no idea how to stream the audio directly from the site :S this is the problematic issue here.

i know, right?! Flash Delirium is my favourite one for jogging and Weekend Wars for walking to school x)

Yeah I know, I kind of wish the other band members were featured in the video a little bit more. It still had a lot of great footage though.
I would really like to see a full length MGMT documentary someday, that would be awesome!

And the interviewer was male. Maybe cos it was just him and Andrew

I always felt like all five of them seemed a bit uncomfortable with female interviewers. Just seemed, to me, that most female interviewers are uncoordinated and overwrought. There are a few exceptions, of course, with the most obvious being the Video Hits interview with Faustina Agolley. She was quite intelligent and composed.

And the other's for Brian Eno. It would be a cartoon video in a style of Ernest le Vampire mixed with Scooby Doo. I still have to develop the whole story but I kind of have it in me.. It's just needs to get outttt

would be great..also for Congratulations, like I Found A Whistle or Siberian Breaks or Brian Eno or Lady Dada's Nightmare xD
Because honestly, their music videos are my favourites. like in general. And they are all so different, I love them x) When i first saw video for Electric Feel i thought i discovered a whole new world. Then I saw Time To Pretend. And then all others.. :D

not true - actually the only prerecorded parts of the show are the drum machine sample at the beginning of flash delirium and the entire backing track for kids, kareoke style.  all other parts you hear coming from all other instruments are being played right there before your eyes n ears, every time.  ben uses mainstage on his macbook to switch between software synth plugin patches between songs, maybe that is what confused you.

They all sound too distinct for them to be pre-recorded, even if I heard it from Ben himself I'd have trouble believing it. For instance when they played It's Working it was MUCH slower than any other version I'd heard.

yes, and at the show I went to last year, I guess they were getting energy from the crazy crowd, because they played Time To Pretend and Electric Feel faster than usual. Or maybe it was just to get them out of the way...LOL

But I did notice that the video for It's Working has a much deeper, slower sound than on the album

Watch Caitlyn's videos that she uploaded, you'll see what i mean, his arms arent even moving..But maybe he developed psychic super friend powers or something..i dunno..I know its not always this way, but this show.. it was prerecorded minus song intros..

So beings so close to them play live,I couldn't help but notice Ben   has every song pre recorded and doesn't really even play live..its kinda like lipsyncing in a way..never noticed that before


not true - actually the only prerecorded parts of the show are the drum machine sample at the beginning of flash delirium and the entire backing track for kids, kareoke style.  all other parts you hear coming from all other instruments are being played right there before your eyes n ears, every time.  ben uses mainstage on his macbook to switch between software synth plugin patches between songs, maybe that is what confused you.   


Who are you, Bendrew?  ;D


SHHH LET IT HAPPEN

(http://skypesmileys.com/skype/emoticons/animated/emoticon-0136-giggle.gif)

anyways. I do believe thay have super powers so Ben's for real!

these things are so often discussed between me and my friends. I don't know. I've seen some electro(nic) bands that use partially prerecorded stuff but it's usually with unexperienced keyboard players. It's like making a pizza from scratch and buying the frozen which is half done. You still defrosted it, put and arranged the ingredients on top and cooked it but it's not the same thing as making your own dough. But if you don't know how to, with time you learn how to make your own and don't use the frozen one anymore. (I have no clue if the pizza reference had sense lol) Also, what Daisy said, when artists are on tour for so long and are really tired and stresses, you can forgive some "cheating" because from little that I know, I guess they chose to play that way to avoid risking disasters. But I haven't seen these videos Jess is talking about yet and when I saw them live I was quite far from Ben ;(

Every time I see them live it seems like they are bigger and better, and at Beale them using FLips light wall just made me think "Wow, they'll have a stage like this one day." I guess what I'm trying to say is, they are fucking rockstars and own a stage.

I think they're one of the few band that actually enjoy doing it. Or at least try to because they care! :) Just be patient and give them half an hour/hour to come out from the venue. It was like that on one gig I went to, but some other forumers will be able to tell you more I'm sure ;)

Sexy Sax Man -- Dropped from Coachella Event

(http://i884.photobucket.com/albums/ac42/JessicaRabbit3/0418-sexy-sax-man-ex.jpg)

The sexy sax-playing YouTube sensation famous for getting his ass tossed out of random places just got bumped from playing a sideshow event at Coachella -- all so MGMT's lead singer could perform in his place.


The Sexy Sax Man -- real name Sergio Flores -- was scheduled to perform at a roller skating event Saturday morning ... but Flores tells TMZ, he got bumped at the last second for MGMT's lead singer Andrew VanWyngarden ... who wanted to DJ a set.

Sergio tells us, he feels "completely blindsided by Coachella organizers" -- adding, they didn't even comp his ticket.
 
But Sergio didn't get TOTALLY rejected -- Flores tells us several fans tracked him down and chanted his name until he emerged from his tent that night. So the Sax Man broke 'em off a piece of George Michael's "Careless Whisper" ... and thank god ... we got the footage.

I vote that they make it up to him by having him open for MGMt on the future tour, i'd fucking love that shit!


its not really Andrew's fault or doing, coachella was the one who bumped Sax Man, Andrew had no say in the matter..but it sure is fun acting like it is..diva hehe

You're too sweet-I feel like I'm the least original and creative person on this forum...as you know, this one was important to me and I feel like there was no way I could possibly have been successful.  :-\

I can't believe I missed to deadline to post my message to James. :'( I'm ashamed to say this is the third b-day post I'm missed. I feel like such a terrible fan. When Will's birthday comes around I swear I won't do this procrastination crap again and if I do, then I deserve to be shot.

i stumbled across a syd barrett song that instantly reminded me of the beginning of the handshake

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxegoPOXf6M

compare the first three notes of this song with the first three of the handshake. might be a coincidence of course but i thought it be funny to know anyway haha. those who have played the intro of the handshake on the guitar might probably hear this better

Apparently, some girl my best friend is friends with on Facebook listens to Andrew Vanwyngarden. NOT MGMT. Y'know.

Also, I'd just like to say... I really hate making promises and not keeping them. This never happens to me except on this forum and idk why  :'( :'( :'(
I don't care if it's passed James's birthday. I'm still going to do something for him.


EDIT; I wanted to paint something but it's going to take too long. :/

Btw, was that High Times article ever posted? I know it was a while ago, but I don't think I saw it on here. I have a scanner now so if anyone wants me to post it, I will. Just let me know!  ;)

Made an interesting discovery today.

I was listening to my mom's mp3'er, and came across a song that sounded peculiarly similar to Siberian Breaks.

"Hurt so Bad" by The Lettermen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brCxWZP87jU
(from 0:49 to 1:05 especially)

To me... sounds almost exactly like the repeated part near the end of Siberian Breaks (9:11 to 9:36)

And by "sounds the same" i mean the chord progression, the synth, and the bass for sure. obviously the vocals don't.

Any thoughts??

Wow, that sounds magic! It must be even better to be on an airplane, right above the clouds, seeing the world from up high and have one of those MGMT moments  :D

It's just so good, you almost believe nothing bad can ever happen again and you just want to share that feeling with everyone. No other band or artist has ever made me feel this good before

I decided to watch the KCRW performance of Siberian Breaks again, just...because it's so perfect. I was reading the comments, which are about 99.9% positive, and I can't feel more proud to be a fan of these guys. The fact that their music is as fantastic as it is often slips to the back of my mind, but I've awaken from my slumber (LOLOL) and am on an MGMT high  ;D

I wrote an ode to MGMT's The Youth. I call it "The Yogurt":

this is a call of dairy to curdle and congeal and ferment together

we could flood the fridge with yogurt or cheese or milk whatever

lock the soy cream out, cut come cheese, coagulate

pour some milk

make it trickle

for cows will lactate again

the yoghurt is starting to congeal are you starting to congeal

together together together together

So yeah, that is the first verse, hope you enjoyed it. This is what happens at late hours of the night when I'm hungry and listening to MGMT  ;D I've also done food versions of The Handshake and I found a Whistle....and currently working on siberian breaks as you can see by my username!

oh lord  I really need to find more constructive ways to spend my time xD

hey i found a waffle

that cooks everytime

an when my pancake is fried i could eat it

and vomit in the toilet

15 packages of stale waffle mix

to return, yummy pancake, and a doughnut

 ok i realize that one doesn't make much sense. It was 4 am, don't judge me!   :P

and here is some MGMT adorableness to improve your day even further:
