Linkin Park

Despite popular opinion, I find that I kinda dig the new Linkin Park album, Minutes to Midnight.

But then I have a horrible, horrible weakness for this kind of music. The more vaguely political and emo'd up it gets, the more I am there, no matter how much I tell myself that there's no real statement, and everything is artifice. I really should know better. Just close your eyes and pretend I do.

You don't like My Chemical Romance as well do you? I think we've been here before.

Block ears, blow nose, hum loudly...
Right. I am prepared ;)

i also own a panic at the disco album, but that was a mistake on my part.
May. 30th, 2007 02:33 am (UTC)
Oh, no! Not another mistake! :)
May. 30th, 2007 02:39 am (UTC)
yes, well, we all have mistakes in our album collection, mr 'the seventies were all about free love and albums by swedes were fine then' shepard ;)

is linkin park swedish? I didn't know.

I like to think of my mistakes as experiments.
May. 30th, 2007 02:51 am (UTC)
naw, they're american.

i just figure mistakes are all part of finding the good stuff. downloading allows you to skirt it financially, sometimes, thankfully.

Ugh. Ugh, ugh, ugh. This is basically the same as saying "despite popular opinion, I find that I kinda dig the movie Norbit".
May. 30th, 2007 04:42 am (UTC)
i don't even know what that is.
May. 30th, 2007 05:02 am (UTC)
Oh, nor do I. But that won't redeem you for what ... you've ... done ... so erase yourself ... cross out what you've become ... *solemn soft-end-of-nu-metal headnod*
May. 30th, 2007 05:05 am (UTC)

May. 30th, 2007 05:42 am (UTC)
I would mock you, but...eh.
May. 30th, 2007 06:23 am (UTC)
you bought the album already? ;)
May. 30th, 2007 06:01 pm (UTC)
And me. But then I would agree with you about My Chemical Romance. And would add lostprophets to the mix.

Just trying to indulge my inner fourteen year old.
