A quote from Kurt Vonnegut came to mind as I was considering the beyond the pale reasoning that must go into these types of mass murder/attempts. It's so simple and true as to be childlike in it's wisdom:

"It's wicked to hate that many people all at once".
Strong shoes is what we got and when they're hot they're hot!

I think Andrew might know it. I remember he shares it with a famous serial killer. Is there a list somewhere, with the names of people hurt?

as a post thought this band should think about the songs they wrote in the past

Dropkick Murphys Announce Benefit Concert In Boston This Sunday, April 28

Band Has Already Raised Over $150k Through ‘For Boston’ T-Shirt Sales

Boston-based band Dropkick Murphys are happy to announce a benefit concert in Boston this Sunday at House of Blues. This will be a special daytime matinee show, so that entire families can take part in the event. Doors will open at 12:30 p.m., and the first band will start at 1 p.m. The bill on Sunday will also include State Radio, Big D and The Kids, The Parkington Sisters, Old Brigade and Barroom Heroes. Tickets to Sunday’s show are on sal today, and can be purchased here: http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/01004A97B311D0F3

The band have already raised over $150,000 through sales of a special “For Boston” t-shirt with all proceeds benefitting the victims and families affected by the Boston marathon bombings and subsequent events. All proceeds from the show will also go toward helping victims of the bombings, their families and communities. The funds will be disbursed directly to those affected by the tragedy through its charity, The Claddagh Fund, which is a nationally-recognized official 501(c)3 charity whose mission is “to serve the most vulnerable in our communities.”



Pipe Bomb On Lansdown

It's Friday night and the street's filled with freaks
Come and watch as the useless flock to the beat
Of the techno noise that enhances their high
A bombs gonna blow and I think you know why

Everybody's running out, bodies hit the ground

You'd better take cover

It's a pipebomb on Lansdowne


Everybody's running out, bodies hit the ground

You'd better take cover

It's a pipebomb on Lansdowne Street


There's no room for dancing on your precious floors

'Cause you've got to save space for the jocks and whores

You say that our shows are for violent thugs

But we're not the ones on designer drugs


Everybody's running out, bodies hit the ground

You'd better take cover

It's a pipebomb on Lansdowne


Everybody's running out, bodies hit the ground

You'd better take cover

It's a pipebomb on Lansdowne Street


It's not a bunch of little kids we're out to harm and maim

So make sure the night you hurl the pipe there's no baseball game

Look for flyers, check the phoenix, are there any decent shows

If Keith Bennett isn't working then the bomb is good to go


Everybody's running out, bodies hit the ground

You'd better take cover

It's a pipebomb on Lansdowne


Everybody's running out, bodies hit the ground

You'd better take cover

It's a pipebomb on Lansdowne

Pipebomb on Lansdowne

Pipebomb on Lansdowne Street

Predictably, right after Mayor "I have the nth largest army in the world at my command" Bloomberg started pimping to the press about how the bombers were headed to NYC next.

It would probably be in poor taste if they played it at last night's benefit, but otherwise I don't see the problem.

I do, however, have some objections about DRONEMANIA.

Worth noting that was an extraordinarily gutless decision on the part of the Strokes, and it informed my opinion of them as a bunch of limp dick cowards (which is a bummer, because I think Is This It? is still a great album).

I don't know, I understand why they did it. It seems kinda petty for a bunch of rich kids whining about cops being "not too smart", especially after 9/11. Catchy song though.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.
