I sincerely love it every time this happens and will never ever ever get bored of it

counting crows dude loving VU -- esp loaded -- doesn't really seem surprising at all IMO

i agree but it fits the "sound nothing like them" bill well enough

K3v Ink (some dude), Monday, 19 November 2012 19:18 (seven years ago) link

every counting crows record is at least as good as loaded

i dunno abt that but i like "a long december" more than "lonesome cowboy bill"

honestly the blue collar & pockets are the more offensive things about that jacket

cr it bothers me less that he's repping bands he most likely has never heard and more how bad he looks

at my funeral my life's work, a screed entitled Disputatio pro declaratione virtutis Loadedis, will be read by mourners as a copy of the master tape is backed over by a monster truck

and then a choir sings a sweet version of oh sweet nuthin followed up by a rootin tootin cowboy bill!

tylerw, Tuesday, 20 November 2012 02:31 (seven years ago) link

is that all the monster truck is going to do at your funeral? I mean you might as well give folks a full show.

all these famouses are already on t-shirts and have identities that are reducible to a t-shirt. they're walking t-shirts themselves. the semiotics of a walking t-shirt wearing a t-shirt are going to be different than those of a civilian wearing the same shirt.

like i could subsume my identity in a smiths shirt but durst can't recede in the same way. he can only scramble the durst signal, redirect it, attempt counterpoint or amplification, or point to something interior but he can't lose himself in the smiths signal.

not sayin these ppl can't wear a band shirt for the same reasons as anybody else but ilx and authorial intent etc..

slugbuggy, Tuesday, 20 November 2012 09:17 (seven years ago) link

What yr sayin' is, it's quite possible that a famous wearing a tshirt could in itself become a t-shirt with meaning, but a famous could not wear that shirt because π

Mark G, Tuesday, 20 November 2012 09:23 (seven years ago) link

you mean like durst wearing a shirt that has a pic of duff wearing a motorhead shirt? only if that was an officially merchandised duff shirt, and the duff/ motorhead conflict collapsed into a singularity. otherwise it's just a dickhead wearing some shirt.

here's someone wondering, seemingly in earnest, why Chris Brown didn't save money by making his own punk rock jacket: http://www.aux.tv/2012/11/chris-brown-finally-kills-punk-rock-with-patched-up-leather-jacket-featuring-exploited-municipal-waste-and-cro-mags-patches/

"A site like Interpunk sells band patches for about $3-4 a piece"

never realised that the look of 'DOOM' from the game Doom was p. much directly inspired from the look of 'DOOM' from the band Doom

Surf pop band Best Coast loves them some Metallica... Maybe it's because they played the Orion Festival?

Fleetwood Mac. Maybe the two of them just swap shirts.

Kinky.

The guitar/vocalist dude from JEFF The Brotherhood likes his metal bands too, or at least metal band shirts...

This one hurts my head. Not the Christina Black Flag tee but, um, a Skrewdriver shirt for her kid? Really? Maybe this is a shop (he asks hopefully)?

This thread would be a lot more fun if it it was less "LOL FAMOUS PERSON DOESN'T KNOW AS MUCH ABOUT BAND AS ME BECAUSE THEY ARE TOO BUSY BEING FAMOUS" and was more "Hey, isn't this neat?"

so this here is ke$ha and i think it's all kinds of neat:

Also, the kid's Big Bad Wolf shirt is awesome.

how's life, Tuesday, 6 August 2013 08:47 (six years ago) link

The interesting thing about this is that ideally while people should wear tshirts of other musicians if they sound nothing like them, when it comes to places the opposite is true and they should only wear a tshirt of a place they have actually been to

cog, Tuesday, 6 August 2013 09:17 (six years ago) link

Oh yeah, no way would that little guy have met the height requirements for the Big Bad Wolf.

how's life, Tuesday, 6 August 2013 10:59 (six years ago) link

although funnily enough he would have met the white requirements for Skrewdriver.

Probably not though, because he's half Jewish and a quarter Hispanic.

Did you catch the Ke$ha/Residents controversy from like a month ago?

the awesome thing about that story is that the residents, who have never ever ever appropriated another artists' image, nope, not them, are now concerned in an apparently lawyerly way about someone appropriating theirs.

fact checking cuz, Tuesday, 6 August 2013 17:51 (six years ago) link

yeah because there is no difference between the Residents and THE BEATLES

definitely the most offensive thing about this story and the total wasteman in it is that he made me spend five minutes trying to verify if he's wearing a Sir Lord Baltimore shirt in the pic (he isn't)

many a slip 'twixt Yow and Yip (DJ Mencap), Tuesday, 3 September 2013 09:28 (six years ago) link

the Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels star said that England was “past its sell by date.”

Funny sentence that. What IS the shirt?

how's life, Tuesday, 3 September 2013 09:33 (six years ago) link

Oh, I see now.

The new brand from CHRISTIAN AUDIGIER - Lord Baltimore and Lady Baltimore apparel is putting a new spin ...

oh and in case any pedants wanted to try and make out that Vinnie isn't a musician

I haven't heard Lorde that I know of but I am pretty sure she doesn't sound like The Cra,ps.
