Star struck

So at Benny's prompting I will make a brief note to say that I was in the same house as Brian Ritchie from the Violent Femmes and Kim Deal from the Pixies yesterday . I can't say where this particular house is/was. It's all a bit secret.

If those names mean little to you then perhaps check the links on wikipedia and see why people might get jealous. The whole experience was a little lost on me. While realising who the Pixies and Violet Femmes are (even knowing some of their "quite good" music) I'm not what you call a fan.

My friend Benny was a bit jealous and described them like this.

It's like sitting on a bus with Paul McCartney except much cooler. Kim Deal is cool. Think of your favourite band of all time. Now, multiply that by ten. Then think of the coolest person in that band and multiply that by ten and you've got Kim Deal.

i care. everyone should care. benny is right. it is a big Deal. the pixies are cool. even if you don't like them. in the same way as Miles Davis is cool, even if you don't understand jazz.

rejoice with Mike O gentiles!

I don't get the pixies thing, but I get the violent femmes thing..

I saw them in concert when I was 16 and have enjoyed guiltily their music ever since. Such sophisticated titles as "I dig the black girls" etc. but they are brilliant. they crack me up and make me totally hyper at the same time. I need a femmes album!!!

You are very priveledged , mike...
