I don't think I can afford it at the moment. Fuck. I've been trying.
Uhhhh
Maybe I'll just go on Sunday if possible. But I'd love to see any of you throughout the weekend.

:(

It came on while I was driving in the convertible with the top down. I think that the naysayers just don't get Muse.

And I simply don't get how the naysayers exist!!!  I'm glad they're returning to their rock roots.  The electronic stuff was not my favorite.

They did it and they did it well.  Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.  Can't wait!!!

This makes me so happy!



The fact that we're seeing them together again!!!



The last time we saw them was a historic day in life

It so was. I see they're playing there again :)

Matt we love you so much!  This is totally my fault.  I've been really, really ill and I dropped the ball.  We all adore you and wish you the happiest birthday surrounded by all of the people who make you smile!!

There is an HQ recording of Guggenheim but I don't think that it will be released because the deal was that it was a one time only (well two times) that were unique to the installation. I know that there are conflicting feels about that though. I'm not sure if both nights were recorded or not. I was there both nights and there was exquisite improvisation.

MGMT / Re: The 3rd Album self-titled MGMT

Okay so i swear there is more to the art then we can see. Anyone have any ideas? If you have the vinyl the back has a weird textrue and a shadow pic of them. Also the sleeve has like little computer chip looking things for each track . And are their shirts digital? What does it all mean????

it's on the back of the CD case too, their shadow silhouettes.

The whole "staticy-computer-virus" theme throughout the booklet I think is just a reflection of the sounds of this album:
how the songs all sound very fuzzy, claustrophobic, overwhelming, and digital (if that makes sense).

As for their shirts, they're actually photoshopped (I thought they were real at first).
I remember someone posted the original photo a little while after the album came out and Ben's shirt
is actually plain white while Andrew's was white with some blue words on it (if anyone could post it that'd be cool.)

On a side note, does anyone remember shortly after the album was released that there was a listing for a "Stylz Unlimited T-shirt" on the merch site but when you clicked on it, it would say some like "available soon" and had no image? It ended up getting removed after a few months I believe. I always thought that was going to be fuzzy-datamosh shirt like the ones Ben and Andrew wore on the cover and was super disappointed when the listing disappeared with no explanation.

I think the bird cage is important. There was that photo of them inside of a thing that looked like a bird cage from Congratulations, but now they're outside the cage...

Yep. That was my first thought when I saw it. I thought of the Gazebo and the quote, "What is a Gazebo if not a birdcage for humans?"  I think that was Ben on World Cafe. It's not a direct quote and I'm on a lot of meds these days. It's all foggy.

Thanks for your response lala. You are thinking fox theatre in Pomona. I was referring to the recently opened Fox theatre in Riverside. It's about 30 minutes from Pomona.

Oh wow that's got to be super confusing!  I can't imagine how many people are going to show up at the wrong theatre :(

Reminds me of a funny story.  Last year I was seeing American Idiot (the National Broadway Tour).  There were two guys outside desperately trying to sell their tickets.....because, you guessed it.  They thought they were seeing Green Day.

MGMT / Re: Blikk Fang is finally happening! (Andrew and Kevin Barnes)

"We received word today that the shipment from New York was delayed by the crazy weather earlier this week and were not going to get the records in time to get the packages out by the end of the month.
 
That was the bad news...
 
The GOOD news is that the February 7 was shipped alongside the January 7, so as soon as they get here, our entire office is going to have a big ole' packing party to get both 7s shipped out to you as quickly as we can! We anticipate this will happen next week. You'll receive an email notification with tracking information when that happens."

What can we gather here? Bikk fang is first on the list? They already got febuarys from where ever so ny must mean andrew and kevin. Hopefully.

That's exciting!  Thanks Owl!
