Todd,
Dude,
is Light in August an actual rock band?

Please explain the new logo if you'd be so kind and informative! ;-)

Yes. Yes it is. An "emocore" "post-hardcore" "metalcore" piece of shit (SO I IMAGINE).

You ever hear of the band As I Lay Dying? Awful, awful stuff with the same look and everything, but I assume this group is trying to follow their lead--since they're so famous, etc.--by taking their name from a book they (probably) haven't read by an author they (probably) don't or wouldn't like.

Anyway, I thought it was funny.

William Faulkner just sent me a message, Todd, and he ain't happy...he sounds horrible!: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otJkaw6tY6E&feature=PlayList&p=AEE706B0DA...

I really wanted to avoid listening to them. Gross, man. Just...gross.

Could we have a photo related to the man or his books again, please? Since you don't like the band anyway...why are we looking at them?

I apologise. I often forget that so many members here lost their sense of humor to the Great Depression.

And that, my friends, is what some folks would call a zinger.

ZING!

AILD is almost among us so it'll change soon. And I promise not to use anything band-related, 'cause, let's face it, that'd be a bit redundant, no?

MUAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA!

Alright, you win. I don't want those guys starting some sort of infection here, spreading such things as (a) rebellion against the parental figure, (b) the expansion of the head-mop and (c) the allocation of skin-tight denim upon the lower half. That's the last thing we need.

I'll give you instead the cast of the As I Lay Dying production by Haverty Marionettes. I'd kill to see these guys perform. Absolutely kill.

Okay that's much better. Thanks Todd! (I think) ;-)

Pffff. Your (b) and (c) are like core principles for me.

More importantly, A Rose for Emily is a Faulkner reference? Just got a whole new perspective on my favourite Zombies song.

A Rose for Emily is a Faulkner reference? Martin! Get thee to the collected short stories and read this one pronto. It's a Faulkner must!

Speaking of "A Rose For Emily," it is fascinating to note how the collective narrator in the story -- this personified gossip -- reappears in Thomas Bernhard's work The Lime-works Random characters from a small town gossip about a grisly murder.
