Re: “Live

@Destiny - The box set sells for more then 100 bucks constantly on e-bay, so if you look at it that way its a steel (AKA defiantly worth it on a dollar per dollar basis since you like to break down things in this way). Also a vinyl has been "in" for the last 15 or so years again, just a heads up for your knowledge base. The money is relative, you sound kind of cheep but thats ok, to each their own. I cant even imagine trying to enjoy any concert while thinking how much I have paid per minute and if its a good deal.. What a way to really waste my night. You pay for a show if its worth it, it should not matter how long the band plays or if they contort to all your standards. This should not even be an excess since you can find out how long any show is on the net now , set lists are posted daily so you can reference that and figure out "exactly" what you are paying for and take the element of surprise out of the equation. The band runs the show but alas everyone is a critic. I hope I never have friends with the kind of standards that you have, bleh.

Re: “Live

This review only really makes sense if you are *not* a Jeff Magnum fan and went to this show. If you are a fan I can not understand how you feel like you were overcharged or whatever trite complaint you are trying to file through your pseudo-journalism above. I used to be a big neutral milk hotel fan like many others and thought this was an amazing show. All us fans thought we would never see Jeff play live ever again so the fact that he ever played at all is amazing. Yes, it was a short set but so are most NMH songs and albums. There are really only 2 full length albums both being fairly short (50 mins and 38 mins) . Jeff played nearly all of the more popular album (minus 2 songs) and half of his first album, nearly 75% of all released songs.

Really, what more could you want? This was a intimate evening with Jeff Mangum and anyone could have figured this out by reading other reviews of the tour (and maybe the fact that the show was billed as "Jeff Mangum" and not "Neutral Milk Hotel") I went with a few fans , we are all in out early 30's and we all thought that it might be a rip-off and who knows what we would think all these years after we ate up neutral milk hotel. We all came to the same conclusion: The show was amazing, his voice has held up amazingly and he was full of love and was having a good time. We were plesently surprised and all walked away having a great night.

Like I said, if you are already not a Jeff Mangum or NMH fan then I don't think this show would have done it for you. If you were/are a fan then I can not fathom how this show did not do it for you. Granted you don't seem like a fan since you have no idea why he sipped out on the music scene for so long (its easy to find this out , there are letters written to fans by Jeff that explain his not so mysterious (at all) absence)..

Also, there is no NMH tour planned, not sure where you get your information from but you should fact check it as it is wrong.

ANYWAYS.. Figured some of the weekly readers might want a more accurate review of this show from someone who actually likes the musician, kind of makes more sense to have someone write about a show who likes the bad.. but maybe that common sense is unique to me alone...

Re: “Last Night's TUSD Ethnic Studies Resolution Meeting Gets an F

The awesome thing about these protests vs the fours is that these fourm trolls who post racist rants on here would never show up to the protest therefore they are really just blowing hot air everywhere. I love how everything can be compared to Obama or the left constantly on these forums but would never dare come up in the protest where it all matters; the fools would be laughed out of the meeting by all sides! Go ahead; I DARE you to go to the protest and present your lame political case, I double dare you, but you cowards never would. That goes to Vanman and Kv and people of the sort, please come out from behind your lit screens where you state your foolhardy opinions and come try to make your point where it matters, we would all do better from the humor.
