I was thinking of making this joke, but then I didn't

dude missed out on the prized l0u1s jagg3r demographic by not calling his album "ozymandias' labia pt. I: the cum-drops of evermore"

Is This It is such a look-what-a-hip-hyped-new-band-we-are-and-this-album-will-be-huge title. Don't know about corporate buzzkill though.

"ozymandias' labia pt. I: the cum-drops of evermore"

there's surely something offensively platitudinous about 'This Is Happening', isn't there? any album-title you could conscionably add 'yeah' on the end of in regular speech isn't worth adopting imo

oh ok i am lolling

ozymandias' labia pt. I: the cum-drops of evermore, yeah?

max, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:31 (4 years ago) Permalink

The problem with that proscription is that you can add "yeah" on the end of anything.

xp: dammit max I was about to post that

no not really

goole, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:32 (4 years ago) Permalink

guys I'm not sure but I think there might be a song called "yeah"

congratulations (n/a), Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:32 (4 years ago) Permalink

xpost Come on it's Jams Murphy - he subject to different criteria. Every gesture he makes is filtered through this jokey/sincerity dichotomy. I'd agree if like Sufjan or Lady Gaga called their hotly-anticipated album 'This is Happening'.

Although i kind of see yr point.

Davek (davek_00), Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:32 (4 years ago) Permalink

the title is fairly crap but i don't think it's worth getting offended over

I can't wait until this album leaks. This thread will be bananas.

im boycotting the album on the grounds of it being too corporate

Just remembered that the words 'this is happening' form part of the title of my favourite self-penned poem - I retreat in shame anew

does oxymandias have labia?

Merriam-Webster says:

Main Entry: happening
Function: noun
Date: 1551

1 : something that happens : occurrence
2 : an event or series of events designed to evoke a spontaneous reaction to sensory, emotional, or spiritual stimuli
3 : something (as an event) that is particularly interesting, entertaining, or important

Thinking the second and/or third definitions are most relevant to this album.

I just wish he hadn't adopted the "ilxor" moniker (ilxor), Tuesday, 30 March 2010 17:23 (4 years ago) Permalink

I'm pretty sure it's also going to be something that happens though.

an "occurrence" if you will
