    =This post is very funny.

    One serious comment then the jokes.

    Conor Oberst’s music isn’t user-friendly enough to make him the next Chris Carraba. I like Bright Eyes but they don’t have that mainstream appeal at all.

    Also, I thought your punchline on T.A.T.U. said Twatho at first glance. That would have been funny, even if not nice.

    Other predictions –

    ~Gene Simmons, resident Kiss pimp AND ho, will start selling Kiss canes, wigs and other Kiss branded prosthetics for his ever aging audience. The rest of us will pray that we never have to hear their music again.

    ~Fred Durst will die in a pyrotechnic disaster onstage and nobody will realize he is gone until the next eminem album comes out and he gets ripped.

    ~Having shown an inability to shock his fans any more, marylin manson will finally reveal that he actually IS Paul from the Wonder Years.

    ~Justin Timberlake will be completely overexposed on very little talent… oh wait, that was 2003.

    ~Ska will make another comeback for about 35 minutes until everyone realizes that it either all sounds the same or is really punk music. Nobody will call Gwen Stefani for a quote.

    ~Finally the RIAA will sue itself for injuring it’s own image. It will later be settled out of court.

    I disagree. I am not a Bright Eyes fan, but I think his melancoly will be perfect for the angst filled youth in 2004.

    And I think he’s perfectly willing to sell out to do so.

    stuff like Bright Eyes i just do not get.

    the descriptions often use terms like “depressive”, “melancholy”, etc.

    all i ever get out of voices like that are..well…nothing. a complete lack of emotion.

    what am i missing?

    have i not hung around the mall enough?
