Barf

Good morning, good morning, indeed, it's at least a morning. I feel fucking sick - got home retardedly, frustratingly late last night, and let me go on record as saying the Killers suck. I find it nauseating that the lead singer has been compared so much to Bruce Springsteen. Ripping off a few melodic patterns from 'Born to Run' and singing retard lyrics like 'don't you want to come with me, don't you want to feel my heart' in a castrated, tremulous whine that seems to have needed a machine to stay on key does not a fucking Bruce Springsteen tribute make. Maybe a Richard Marx tribute - a weak one. Fuck. They were alot better when they were trying to be English.

In other news, it was a pleasant, relaxing weekend. So pleasant and relaxing that hours would go by without me thinking about my employment prospects. So when the phone rang at 5 o'clock yesterday displaying "Unknown Number" I think the F-word and I even joked a little about how it couldn't possibly be someone wanting an interview. And then it was. I nearly flipped but I think I squeezed out coherent words. It was a screening interview from a lady who was on her way to a European bed for something I'd applied to months and months ago that paid good, good money. Weeee! Anyways, I'm still thrown by that. Watch me work like a dervish today.

Boo. How disappointing to hear that the Killers suck live (I'm assuming you went to a concert?). I do enjoy their music when I hear it on the radio, but I've never bought anything. Who the hell has compared the lead singer to Bruce Springsteen??

Congrats on the screening interview! I'm sure more and more people are going to check out this fabulous Mistress La Spliffe they've been hearing about. :)

the killers DO suck live (but i don't think spliffe went to a concert last night). they have zero personality. they're more a cabaret act then big stage performers.

dervish weeee!

No, last night the newest Killers album got played maybe twice in the car I was in. Boooooo. I saw them live with Lady behind their first album. Cabaret act . . . yeah. Without the oily charm.

Thanks for the congats . . . on verra . . .

Ah, I was wondering where the Killers critique was coming from. Wasn't the lead singer brought up a mormon or something? Maybe there's no personality happening because he can't just 'let loose'?

Mistress La Spliffe ha detto...

Jon Heder let loose in Napoleon Dynamite and he's a Mormon. Anyways, that's no excuse for that album sucking sooooooooo bad. Ugh. Like poison treacle. Ugh. Ugh.

Congrats about the interview. I don't have time to chat but wanted to stop by. CHeers.

Melbine ha detto...

Yeah, a strict religious upbringing can really go either way, can't it!

Ha-ha, Napoleon Dynamite. What a funny movie.

Thanks, Sugar, and yes, Mel.
