Why you always quizzing people!!??? you think you're better than us?! HUH?!

ok, I see Phil at the top (b&w...and why did you choose that picture, out of curiousity??), Genevieve at the bottom (b&w), Emily to the right of Phil, Mirah in the green and glasses, I think MAYBE that might be the guy from Xiu Xiu with the greenish face next to Mirah, Calvin Johnson to the left of Phil, the guy from Little Wings in the upper right corner, and that weird bearded guy from that band you showed me the other day. except he was shirtless in the picture I saw.

I think that's all I know. I like your cover, it's a good idea. =)

That's probably scout niblet with the hat. if your name is scout, you should wear a hat.

OH MY GOSH, and the girl from Lovers. black hair, black necklace. DUH! I almost missed that.

I didn't realize there was a list at the bottom. that makes it easier. the bearded guy is bonnie prince billy and probably that's movie tone in the upper left with the dominos, and maybe bright eyes in the lower left??

and I don't know the others. I mean, I could guess, but that would be stupid. or would it??

believe it or not, the ones with the dominos are xiu xiu. ^_~

really? ok I'm a loser or something
Mellenabsentmammoth on April 5th, 2005 09:13 pm (UTC)
you know, i don't know what i was thinking. i'm embarrassed now. i didn't want to make it a quiz, i just thought it'd be fun...though you are probably only one of a few people who would even care, hehe. besides, you got most of them right!

and i chose that picture of phil because all the rest of the pictures of him on the internet have his face covered up or far away or blurry. maybe i should just take a picture of the one from the live in japan booklet i keep by the computer.

this is pretty. i bet the mix is pretty as well.

Damn it, why'd you post the answers! I actually knew most of those. Of course that's since I've seen/spoken to a lot of them in person ;-)
Mellenabsentmammoth on April 5th, 2005 10:20 pm (UTC)
those aren't the answers in any kind of ORDER of who they are, just the names of the bands, to see if people could guess based on the names.

you should say what you know, stupid!
Alex Staherskiintheblacklodge on April 5th, 2005 10:31 pm (UTC)
OK well fine then. Phil is in the top center. Geneveive and my buddy Vanderslice are the bottom right. Rasputina, or rather, Melora, is on the right side 2nd from the top. Pinback is just south of dead center. Mirah is third down on the left. Bright Eyes aka Conor Oberst is just right of Pinback.

Let's see, I think the guy to the left of Rasputina is actually Rasputin.

I guess those are all the ones I know.
Mellenabsentmammoth on April 6th, 2005 02:06 am (UTC)
yup, you got all the ones you said right.

yay! i don't recognize a single face. i'm so unhip it's.. hip.
the one dude with the full beard looks like rasputin the russian monk-psychick.

i'm with you on this.

either that, or i'm just getting old.
There's probably a lot of baggage to considereianorange on April 5th, 2005 11:13 pm (UTC)
we are gettin old. =/

plus the fact that i don't really go for the indie rock progressive stuff. most of the genres of music i listen to are either suffixed by "core" or are so hopelessly electronic that it's possible no humans actually took part in the creation and arrangement of sounds.

it sucks to feel it slipping out from under you, doesn't it? *lol* i can only IMAGINE what my grandparents feel.

as for music, yeah i don't listen to any of that stuff either. the only one i had heard about *before* reading their ljs was rasputina, but i had NO idea what any of these folks looked like.

it proves how vain i am that the *only* thing that concerns me about lettin the years fly by is losing my hair (which hasn't begun yet).

but yeah me too, rasputina is the only one in the list i've ever listened to and only their album "how we quit the forest". i really dig the song "signs of the zodiac" but "diamond mind" is hilarious.

"gimmie the goddamned diamond.."

just watched a documentary on rasputin the other day. very interesting. though i dont quite see how he's considered so evil.
