you probably should have warmed up for this with a few cat gifs and posts about situation comedies

The Gerogerigegege have an album they recorded at a toilet venue I think

Thing is, something that actually *sounded* like the floor of a toilet venue like, say, the Bull & Gate, feels - i.e. really really sticky and slightly damp - would probably actually sound something like Annie's Bubblegum.
Which would actually be awesome. And I feel we're doing the floors of the toilet venue circuit of Britain a vast disservice, comparing this band to them.

jesus christ, when will someone just invade this country and kill us all to save the embarrassment of stuff like this.

xp It would have to be a phenomenally ugly wall. This guy is about half as entertaining as Tailpipe Man.

Did this guy do something really annoying on some Florence & the Machine thread? Like, the vibe here seems sorta harsh even by ILX standards.

okay, yeah, he seems like kind of a challopsy pill. And the 50 insults thing is really terrible. He's like fifteen though right? Dude could grow out of that and become a true ILXor although probably a somewhat dull one. Trying too hard, doesn't have the fundamental spark of a CaptainLorax.

No I think this band is really onto something. I don't think anyone has ever made music like this before. Maybe garagey power pop-punk will be the next craze thanks to The Valentines. Great name too.

To be serious for a moment... The fact that ILX is giving him more than the usual newbie hazing over that Florence shit is one of those moments that makes me actually proud of ILX.
Like all the conversations and discussions we've had are actually starting to sink in and the penny has dropped. When you have the entire open goal of Florence's music and how awful it is, just sitting there and you go for insulting her appearance, that's not just lazy thinking and bad writing, it's sexist shit and sexist shit has real life consequences.
I know dude is so oblivious he's probably gonna go on now about how we "can't handle his banter" and bonus points if there's a "make me a sandwich" joke involved (see how engrained this shit gets, that I can internally make the insults before dudes make them.) This shit is insidious, that it's not the one dude who thinks he's hilarious, but the way that all the males on a messaeboard who could go either way (who could be reasonable posters or could act like pillocks, before anyone makes any LJ jokes) take that example. So it makes me heartened to see people calling him out on it, even if he's too clueless to even recognise what he's being called out for. It's one of those cases where I think peer pressure can actually work in a way that 100 carefully argued threads about gender can't always.
It's actually heartening. So no one spoil my moment, please.
