Trayvon Martin was shot by a Neighborhood Watch volunteer, not a cop.
I'm amazed by how few of these bands I've heard of. Here we go...
1. The National - High Violet
2. Arcade Fire - The Suburbs
3. The Thermals - Personal Life
4. Ted Leo/Pharmacists - The Brutalist Bricks
5. Spoon - Transference
Okay, the first one I could believe was real. But the second one is too ridiculous.
Just like to say, I approve of your perspective, pdxparole.
Does anyone else see princess Leia in that snuggie picture?
In September of 2005, Arcade Fire played a show at the Crystal Ballroom. I had planned to attend with a group of college friends, but at the last minute I had to stay in Eugene for training for a new job. After returning from the concert, my friends described the concert as nothing more than "good" or maybe "fun." I soon after found out from another friend that rest of my friends were holding back. At the concert, AF had switched all their instruments with acoustics - taking their instruments through the crowd... and down the stairs... to play in the middle of the street a cover of Bowie's "Queen Bitch" (one of my, your and everyone's favorites). What I'm trying to say is: Give me a story to compensate, to rub in my friends' faces the way they should have rubbed theirs in mine, please, oh please, oh please.
This whole scenario is weird to me. I worked in coffee shops a couple of years and it became pretty widely known that cops are extremely selective about where they buy coffee (for fear of having something slipped in their food/drink). The fact that a cop would go into the Red and Black at all seems like he was trying to instigate something. I guess he was successful. I guess my only point - regardless of the "appropriateness" of the R&B - is that the choice of the cop to patronize the R&B seems suspect to me.
