(As copied from the first page of my journal, 9/07)
“…The reason that bands who play their guitars hung below their waist suck is not just that guitars when below their waist suck is not just that guitars when hung so low are harder to play, or even that doing so not only makes playing harder but shows a lack of respect for musicianship. What makes these bands suck is that they care more that their guitar sticks out from their pelvis like a comically oversized phallus than that it sounds good.
If you care enough about your silly pop music that you’ll hang your phallic object so that it protrudes from your stomach or rib cage, I’ll certainly respect you, and I might even like your silly little pop music too.”
Hopefully this blog will strive a little higher.
