Farewell to the City of Lights!

Off to the airport and thence to the Land of American Exceptionalism (USA! USA! USA!!!!).

But until our return, I leave you with this disturbing image, as seen in the Paris Metro station earlier this week.

I mean, Jeebus -- the fricking Nazis occupied the fricking place. Haven't the Frenchies suffered enough?

I dislike Arcade Fire as much as I can.

There is a review of the new Arcade Fire album in today's Washington Post. It's titled, "Arcade Fire’s ‘Reflektor’: Still devoid of wit, subtlety and danger, now with bongos" Ha! Here is the link to the review:(it's a fun read)

I may be poking the bear here (and how I wish I could translate that phrase into French) but, Mr. Simels, is there a major rock act that's come onto the scene in the last six or seven years that you (or any of the contributors to this blog) actually LIKE, that might have a shot at having an estimable, influential career output?? Not trying to be a smart-ass here, I'm genuinely curious about people's opinions, opinions I may be able to learn (something) from.

J. Lag --- personally, I haven't heard anything other than a couple of local bands that make me sit up and take notice. Everything seems very derivative to me. The only vocalist who has a distinctive style that I can recognize is Karen O, and she's been around longer than that.

These guys are local and pretty unique, and they're really great live:
