    Also, I'm going to go with my last 5 plays: The Police Caetano Veloso Nas Led Zeppelin Audioslave
    You are one of those pricks who shows up at a party, turns your nose up at the Natty Boh, and say you only drink Stella. Not entirely unrelated: You used to have a goatee. Also you sandwiched Caetono Veloso (admittedly, an unimpeachable choice) between such boring unoriginal shit that you lose all cool points. Damn you ethnic types for being born in to a vibrant musical heritage!

    REMMEMBER WHEN WE SAW GLASSJAW AND TIM BROKE HIS CLAVICLE LOL>HAWDCORE! Though I'm actually impressed with Aesop Rock - most of you xxhawdcore tards pick Sage Francis as your "No I have varied tastes and don't just listen to emaciated white kids with daddy issues yelp." choice. (Though the correct choice is of course Saul Williams) Protip: USBM is just as an unlistenable as hardcore and you don't seem nearly as ghey.

    This is slightly terrifying in its laser-like accuracy, although I call cheating on the goatee thing, since everybody knows that.

    I have actually brought my own Stella Artois to parties on my quad where, in fact, people were drinking Natty Lite. I am a prick.[​IMG]

    You are a caucasion male between the ages of 30 and 45. Sometimes at parties you used to act more drunk then you actually were to match up with your peers. People consider you to be sociable but you know you are more withdrawn and tend to analyze conversations well after they completed. You have a faint childhood scar on one of your knees (left?). Usually even-tempered, your anger tends to flare up every now and then unexpectedly, mostly without consequence but this still makes you uncomfortable. You saw Garden State and liked it, but you felt the ending unfavorably tipped the balance between the saccharine and the poignant. I HAVE SEEN IN TO YOUR VERY SOUL! BOW BEFORE MY MUSIC ANALYSIS ABILITIES.

    Natty Lite is a far cry from Natty Boh. Long live Boh.

    Wait, what? Natty Light = Natural Light. What is Natty Boh? It' not the non-light version, Natty Ice. Come to think of it, I have never seen a can of anything called Natty Boh or Natural Boh. What's Boh?

    I went back and noticed I've posted my own five favorites before, a little over a year ago

    Pavement
    Dinosaur Jr.
    Fugazi
    The Hold Steady
    Ted Leo


    Today I'd probably switch out the Hold Steady (new album=letdown), and replace with the stuff-white-people-like-iest band ever: Wilco

    [​IMG] DOH!

    Okay, the age one was easy, but the rest is f-ing weird. Though the scar was on my right knee and has faded. You should have known that given my potential age.

    And I can't actually remember how Garden State ended. Presumably together. That is a bit too sweet for me. Though to contadict that, you forgot a huge trait of mine: I'm a hopeless romantic.

    Protip: Gavin Degraw is John Mayer for pussies. And John Mayer is basically just music for pussies.



    Sometimes you wear your shirt collar on top of your jacket. You have, at one point in your life, owned a leather blazer as well as enough hair product to supply the entire cast of a John Waters movie.



    You are basically the model Jetta driver.



    You went to public school.




    You closely followed the Blu-ray v. HD DVD format war. Douchebag.



    You fantasize about doing Special K with Bradford Cox. You lost your virginity to Kraftwerk, which is kind of creepy - like seriously, how do you plan that shit out? You might be Rye GB's little brother.


    lol this is perfect. man, you should work for Howard Stern or something, get a column in a magazine.

    Everyone see that?!!? Come on I know some people on here have to work in the industry - I can be paid in alcohol and clothes. Thanks Sho. (i will do the new ones tonight when I get back from a gig) And Natty Boh is the Baltimore Natty Light and USBM means US Black Metal.
