Keep Sending Me Black Fireworks

It looks like I'm one of only eight remaining contestants in the Everybody Gets a Hamburger at the End blogging challenge. I have a question for challenger Phil, aka phool2056. Your brother isn't this dude, is he?

Also, if it's not too much trouble, maybe you can see if anyone from Of Montreal wants to hang out with me. I'm a pretty cool guy. I don't think there's anything that's even a little weird about a complete stranger asking someone on the Internet to ask their brother to ask his girlfriend's band to max and relax with him. Nope, not strange or awkward at all.

Now that I think about it, I think that was more of a sound tech guy.

Phil said...

I believe that to be my brother's buddy Dan Korn, who is indeed the sound guy. My brother is very tall(but not as tall as me) and usually in some kind of outlandish getup. Last time I saw them it was a Darth Vader outfit with bits painted gold, but that was last year, and I think it's something else now.

Jake said...

There are plenty of outlandish getups in my Of Montreal photos, but I don't believe that any of them adorn your brother.

may i please join you on this wagon to ask someone on the internet to ask their brother to ask his girlfriend's band to max and relax with him/her? cos i'm totally jealous and love them. i didn't take any pictures from when i went to see them play though. =(

Jake said...

Certainly! There's always a spot on the wagon open to anyone who desires to ask Internet acquaintances to ask their brother to ask their girlfriend and the band mates of said girlfriend to kick off their shoes and relax their socks with those seated in the wagon. Or something.

And I only took pictures when I saw them play once. There were even more costume changes the second time and it was soooo cool. Kevin wore a stepladder, just like in the music video for Heimdalsgate like a Promethean Curse. There was another point in the show when Kevin didn't wear pants.

That was a little awkward.

Fortunately (from my perspective, at least), he was wearing undergarments. There's been at least one show where that wasn't the case.

Anyway... That's probably enough about Kevin Barnes' underwear.

yeah, i saw them with the ladder too! and i'm pretty sure there can never be enough said about kevin's underwear. (i hope this doesn't ruin our chances.)

I shouldn't be a sports editor, darn it. said...

Dude, I kept reading this and thinking "Phil doesn't have a brother!"

But I guess Phil would post online as Kevin.


p.s. I'm reading your blog and posting stupid comments because I don't want to think about how nervous I am. I'm applying to take over for our restaurant reviewer at work. I told them I want the job so bad I'd eat meat to get it. Grr.

Now you're talkin' like a real journalist - you compromise those morals, girl!
