Since we're talking about the weird tangents between Me, The Declaration, Greg Ceton and Here's a Hint, I thought I'd check out this weeks Suck-o-Tash, and yep, it basically looks like a store-bought product placement for The Black Cat. Here's how it cooks itself up:
- Begin with one massive over-estimation of Lungfish's popularity
- Stir in local cultural reference (Topper Shutt)
- Namedrop three bands that everyone in attendance would have probably traded up to see, given the chance (T. Rex, White Stripes, JSBX)
- Reduce in a hastily constructed metaphor sauce (I'm supposed to imagine melodies "climbing and falling against each other" but notes that "rub against each other; "weaving a musical blanket" is from the My First Book of Greil Marcus).
- Serve with grandiose statement of the obvious "ultimately these fuckers write pop songs." (What? Seriously? You mean they don't write fricking sonatas? These songs aren't twelve-tone experimental compositions with recitatives?)
Now Here's a Hint and I differ on the subject of inDCent Exposure. Here's a Hint says it's just above Craigslist in content quality. I say, that's defamation. Craigslist is many thousands of leagues above inDCent Exposure. In fact, I think I can say definitely that inDCent Exposure is the one website/webresource whose content actually fails to improve upon a monitor that's been busted with a cricket bat.
