Our most vulnerable citizens

Posted by Matt Saturday, February 20, 2010

Though I try to keep myself distant and disengaged from the debauchery of the forums, this latest excursion by this site’s cyber-rebels into the hidden and private lives of children forces me to speak up.

I think we all agree that the Love Monsters were a college band. And I’m sure we will all acknowledge that the college they attended was a private college. You see where I’m going with this. The Love Monsters were a private band. Think about that. Also, I’m sure that none of the hell raisers on the forum has ever stopped to consider that the Love Monsters at the time of these recordings were, for all practical purposes, children. By linking to this gangly and awkward music, you are exposing the private poetry and musings of children.

And though these children attended an incredibly expensive private college, we can only guess what other kinds of deprivations they might have been experiencing at the time which made their music so sad. And though the Love Monsters may look very joyous on their record cover, don’t adolescents often clown around with the very greatest energy at the very time that they are suffering the gravest pain? We can only guess what pain these five apparently chemically-dependant children were experiencing at the time of this photograph.

Let’s be careful when we expose the private lives of our nation’s most vulnerable citizens. Just a thought.

Ha!  I can’t help but notice that you’ve included quite a high number of web links for a musician with such a tortured, adolescent soul!  This couldn’t be wit that you are showing above…  No, no, you must truly be in pain.

Thus, I will respect the privacy that you so seek.  I will only speak of these recordings again in March when I yell out their titles from the balcony of the Pantages theater!

Screw that sentiment - I’ve been an adult long enough to know that everything worth saying is said as a child. After that, it’s just a bunch of big words to hide the fact that none of us really have anything to say. Long live the legacy of the Love Monsters.

bleh, sounds like every band everyone was in at least once during the 80s….

The lengths of the songs and the structure are exhausting to listen to. It also just makes me wanna listen to Applehead Man.

Matt, we all know that this is a thinly veiled plea for assistance.

Never fear, we will help you lobby Dan to allow inclusion of “Rebecca” into the set list for the Pantages.

Looking forward to it!

Oh dear Matthew R…if you don’t want the scavenging and scrounging riff raff rifling through your garbage, stop dangling the tantalizing treasures ‘neath our noses for us to revel in their sweet freshman odors!

So wait a minute, does “Daniel Wilson 83” mean you entered Harvard in 83 or graduated in 83? 

Aren’t you cats around my age…40ish?  Or maybe it’s your precocious Lutheran work ethic that allowed you two to join the ivied halls at age 14?

By “you” in my above statement, I obviously meant “your brother”
