Would it be like in 2112?
Like where there's an oppressive society where everyone thinks the same and the Priests of the Temple of Syrinx maintain uniformity and the dude finds a guitar and tries to be creative and everybody's like STFO and so he kills himself?
That would suck. I agree.
What fun would life be without different views, opinions and people voicing them? That life would suck. It would be WAY less fun than arguing about shit that doesn't matter with people you don't even know. And you all know it.
1. Elvis is not dead. He works the late shift dealing jacks & aces at a two-bit joint in Reno. He's got himself a trailer park floozy who's seen better days & he spends mosta his free time chasing percosets with cheap brandy & browsing wistfully through old nudes of Ann-Margret.
2. It's hard to tell from that photo, but it appears that E's tie has some color & shine to it - you know, some panache. Not to mention his sharkskin suit. Find me a picture of The King dressed like a '60s era engineer for IBM & I'll concede.
That Elvis poster is indeed a rock poster. But not so much by modern standards. Much like a Model T Ford is a car yet not exactly functional in a modern sense.
But I am really, really not going to have this lame ass argument yet again. really... I'm not.
Oh, no they're a rock n' roll band.
And this is indeed a rock n' roll poster.
It might not fit into your idea of what that is...but it is what it is.
Would you say this isn't a rock n' roll poster?:
My band wore suits for two shows. The two worst shows we've ever played. they were ritually destroyed immediately after the seond suckfest.
Now you'll be lucky if you see Ten Extra Pounds wearing any clothes.
where the hell did that pic come from jason? how many do you have of me? why is is that i can't take a normal photo? why is one of my eyes looking in 2 different directions? stop taking photos of me when i'm drunk.
yeah, i looked at the code and you grabbed a few end tags. meaning tou got like the tail end of some code that created a duplicate of some code thus fucking up the way the page renders...its only about 10 letters fucking it up...really no biggie. Clay should be able to find it quick...i did.
yeah. i just figured that out. (i had copied your source code and just pasted a new url, but i must have fucked something up.)
i started a forum to draw attention to that fact and hope clay will fix it up when he gets on... doh. i'm a retard.
I listened to the Spoon Mp3s on the Spoon site. They sound like a 60's or 70's pop band. I don't like them, but I don't exactly hate them either. Bnads like that just don't jump out at me. I like music that commands me to listen. Spoon are not my taste is all. I would say that you are right Jason. I'm not a fan of the shirt and tie style bands. Except the Hives. I like the Hives. Now THATS a band that can rock.
Beatles, the Who, Interpol, many many many many many many many many more too. And many of which you probably don't like mike...mush of the suit wearing bands I would say are not your taste...but I think some maybe.
i think, like this, many designs are liked by the crowd that likes the band...if you are not the type to like the band, a geek in this example, then you probably would not like the poster.
I hate the movie posters of most movies I hate.
Cake fans would not like Spoon. Spoon will kick your ass though. started out with a Pixies sound and evolved. Prolly the best band in Austin. Jim Eno is a awesome drummer and the song "fitted shirt" that this is about has a huge Zeppelin-esque drum sound. My fav. on the album. I thought this was genius when i first saw it. Still do. There's nothin' stiff about spoon...
no bad on your part, max.
in many cases this would be seen in proper context: at clubs and record stores, along with other gigposters. where it's posted out of appropriate context, you have a vaild point, it may only work for the band's fans. the date and club name are buried.
this one made communication arts, did it not?
I might mistake it for a clothing ad if I saw it out of the context of this website.
The concepts for my posters are so thin and weak that I guess stuff like this flys right over my head. I'm trying to think a little more about how to bring better concepts to the style that I work in. Maybe looking at this poster and ones like it will help. I just seem to keep missing the point without an explanation.
different tastes is all, max. i love this poster. it fits my taste. it just may not fit yours. not that there's anything wrong with that (a la sienfeld). this is just the kind of thing that stands out to me when i see gigposters posted around here.
What is the band like? Do they sound like this looks?
I want to say again, It's not a bad poster. It's just so far away from the stuff I do. I am always looking to pick up knowledge from different styles.
I am wondering what abut this is going to make me want to go see this band or this show? I never get posters like this. They just don't seem very exciting.
I'm not trying to talk shit, seriuosly, I am just curious.
