one year passes...

i saw these guys perform on TV for the first time today. what is interesting about them, to me, is that they're essentially playing bland, mide-to-late 90s style 'alternative rock' tracks, and that this sound still sells millions of records.

That "Cake by the Ocean" song keeps getting played in my gym, and I finally looked it up and was yes curious about one of those anecdotes and found that article.

what would Don 'n' Ghost of Glenn think of the Brothers J?

recriminations from the nitpicking woke (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 11 June 2019 16:59 (three months ago) link

DON: My children were the ones who first brought the Jonas Brothers to my attention during downtime on our soldout The Long Road Out Of Eden tour. I found it slightly refreshing to hear a young Pop act who were writing and actually playing on their own records.

GLENN: I found it interesting that they were wearing Purity Rings. When we were their age, we were all about collecting as many of those as possible!

DON: Well, yeah.

Nick was pretty good on that Kingdom show. I only saw a few episodes, but it looked good.

Don't know if I ever heard a Jonas Bros song in full.
