Bright Eyes on E-Town

I went to a radio show taping yesterday of Bright Eyes on E-Town. I think most of it will unfortunately be edited out.

The host was asking all these lame questions that every interviewer asks and it went something like this:

Interviewer: "So you have released 2 albums this year and toured for most of the year and you have your own record company. You must be tired."
Conor: "Yes."
Interviewer:....."Of the two albums you released this year one is quite a bit different from the other?"
C: "Yes."

Bad questions, followed by a yes or no answer until finally:

C: "I'm not really in a band this is just my cover because I'm a private investigator. As soon as I get my soil samples back I'm gonna catch that crook who keeps murdering bums in the E-Town creek."

Interviewer: "How about your apperance of the Jay Leno show."

C: "Jay was great. I really wanted to get a burrito today. Just a bean and cheese burrito, nothing else. The waitress at the Mamacitas restaurant said that she couldn't bring me that because I had to pick something off the menu. BOULDER IS A HORRIBLE TOWN FOR BURRITOS STAND UP AND FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT TO HAVE A BURRITO!"

I: "You've been doing a lot of political songs lately"
C: "Yes. I like little girls."
Girl screams from audience: "I LOVE YOU CONOR!"
C: "You're too old for me, I only like 5-6 year olds."

So when E-Town broadcasts their Bright Eyes show, do try to catch it, it is fantastic.

Smashing Guitars.

I just watched last night's show with Bright Eyes. It makes me very annoyed that Conor smashed a guitar, a "extremely expensive guitar" at that. He's acting like a spoiled rockstar. I'm always going to love his music, and him for what he's done so far, it has really impacted my life, that's why i have a "poison oak" tattoo and don't regret it, and will never, it's now part of me. but still...what's up with the spoiled rockstar act? it makes me angry.
