LNS: May 8

Ok, I know it's been a while since I last "blogged." Let me just say this: I have a lot going on in my life, all right? Heidi is moving to Vegas and Spencer has no idea, Joey is absolutely crazy but is going to rehab and should be fine, Amanda found out, via Facebook, that Alex has a girlfriend, Tila is finding out who's really in it for her...I clearly can't just sit around and blog about LNS all day, ok? Jesus.

Anyway, the feature on Thursday was Thom McCarthy. That's right -- Thom. With an "H." Like Thom Yorke or Thom Arnold.

Every picture of him that exists on the Internet is of only half of his face. Except this one:

He's kind of an eccentric guy, Thom. In a good way, though. I think. His songs are good enough that he gets away with it, at least. When he performs he gets really into it and, like, walks around and stomps and yells and stuff. It's entertaining. Thankfully he did most of this off of the stage, because when he was doing it on our (crappy, makeshift) stage we were kind of all exchanging worried glances, visualizing it collapsing underneath him. It didn't, though. And he was great.

There's only one thing I don't really like about Thom and I'm going to say it right now. In his song "Cheesteaks [sic] Live Forever" he sings:

Blinding ball of fury in the sky
Of which we dance around

In perfect time

Of which? Really? Thom, that doesn't make any sense. "Around which we dance," yes. But "of which we dance around"? Nah. Get rid of the "of," Thom. It's unnecessary. It's something of which you should rid yourself. (<-- Necessary.)

A lot of people came on Thursday night. I don't really know why, but I hope that keeps happening. We even ran out of coffee. We RAN OUT of COFFEE. The worst coffee in Philadelphia and we ran out of it. That's how many people were there. I guess we're just pretty great, huh?
