Because the great bulk of humankind is so overwhelmed by the fog of existence that they can barely think to breathe, let alone discern subtlety, nuance, and quality. See: Sarah Palin.

Wooh! FINALLY got my fucking car back after it being out of commission for 2 weeks. Apparently the tensioner "blew up" but I was lucky because it remained intact, meaning it didn't jostle about my engine & wreak havoc on the rest of my engine. Oh, I had no idea how much I need my own wheels.

Dylan, catch some live clips of theirs. Apparently that's what got Ivy to appreciate them (at least to some degree; she's a better spokesperson for whether she actually likes them or not). And what'd you think of Interpol, by the way?

Everybody should go see Black Swan this weekend. I caught it with John & his friend last night and will be going again with Jennifer in the imminent future. It's Darren Aronofsky's best film, which is high praise in its own right. The sound design is ridiculous, Natalie Portman is terrific, it's surprisingly funny (especially Vincent Cassel), and it calls to mind the best of Roman Polanski's early work with how palpable the paranoia and tension are. I cannot recommend this enough.

Arcade Fire is great. New album is good.

My friend Tyler has never heard of them and gave me shit for saying that people think they are headlining Coachella. Now, I don't know if I fully believe they are headlining material, but I wouldn't throw a fit if they were headliners either.

But he seems to think because he's never heard of them then they don't deserve to headline...

I might also add that he spins trance music.

It took me a bit to get into them. I started listening in mid 2005 but man it took my grandparents deaths in 07' for it finally hit me like a ton of bricks.

In other words. Kill some relatives and start with Funeral. I also had trouble understanding the lyrics and once I did I found it much more enjoyable. I was not a fan of Neon Bible but I saw them twice on that tour and loved the one two punch of Power Out / Rebellion live.

I really hadnt heard of Arcade Fire before all the buzz about them here on the message board this year. The name name looked vaguely familar to me, but honestly I couldnt of told you what kind of music they were... After listening I see why I didnt know them. A little too emo/indie for my taste.

Ivy, you're probably going to want to make other plans tonight. Barney's is on University and the Insight Bowl is tonight at ASU. There will be tons of Missouri and Iowa fans, traffic will be horrible, and you won't be able to find anywhere to park. The game starts at 8 tonight but there are already tons of people down on Mill and University tailgating and waiting for the game to start. You have been warned!

Also was there ever a conclusion to talk of watching the Bears-Packers game? And how early would people be willing to start showing up?

There is a Half Moon Sports Grill (http://www.yelp.com/biz/half-moon-sports-grill-phoenix-2) near Camelback and the 51 that might be a convenient meet-up spot. I have not been to that location but the one on Greenway has good food and plenty of room.

If the idea was Downtown then my only idea would be Alice Cooperstown but I have no great love for that place. I don't really know sports bars downtown!

I wonder if Bomberos will be showing the football games on Sunday; they have excellent food and great wine and also beer. It wouldn't be the standard place but it worked well for World Cup games. (I would want someone to call ahead, though, to confirm they were showing the game.)

Yeah, we want to go watch the game somewhere. Only sports bars I can think of in the downtown area are Majerle's and George and Dragon. THere's also a Hooters at the Arizona Center and the Rose and Crown at Heritage Square.

Bomberos is a little far north and east for us I think.

So as Rick and I were eating dinner last night before the Best Coast show, we were discussing the Coachella line up and I brought up how hard it must be to get around 130 bands each year with so many different factors involved. Rick told me he counted that this year there were like 170 or 180 bands this year. I was kinda dumbstruck cause in past years they've had around 130.

So today I looked at past years with the 3 day schedule and then this year's list. Last year they had 134 bands and this year I counted 182! That's almost 50 more bands! I thought I read somewhere on the board recently that there is going to be another stage. Is this true?

With all the extra bands I could see how they would have to. But if they aren't how are they going to fit in all the extra bands? Past year's set times looked pretty packed as it was with 5 stages. And if they are going to have an extra stage, are they expanding the festival area to accommodate a 6th stage?

And yes, there will be another stage.

If any Phoenix attendees need to sell their Camping Pass, I will gladly take them off your hands. I can't believe they sold so quickly, now i'm out of luck...will have to do a condo but hopefully they release tickets tomorrow.

Yeah, I'm SOL too. If I can't camp, I'm probably not going to go. I'm trying to think of another option that doesn't trap me in the venue all day, but haven't come up with any.

I haven't tried the mac n' cheese yet either, but it smells awesome. Too awesome to be diet friendly. I'll be wishing I had ordered it while I eat a salad...

There's some good salads on that menu, and the sammies can always just be eaten breadless.

i'm only doing it for 2 weeks, well, not drinking till valentine's day. i'll get the pro-pasta. breadless sandwiches are kinda weird & salad isn't really a "meal" to me, more of a side. thanks for posting the menu :)
