First of all, #RestoreTheShore. Having said that, a group of elderly honkies who 'represent American Music' got 2gether 2 have a benefit show 2 raise money 4 restoring the shore. I guess they raised money, which is good, but at the same time, u have 2 wonder if it is time 2 just 'shut down' culture [via 'being old and tired'].
Watched these dudes with fake hair perform. I think they are 'the original guidos' [via Jersey Shores]
Also Paul McCartney joined Nirvana, replacing Kurt Cobain or something. I guess he was always overrated anyways.
hey look Donald Darko grew a beard, yall
'so the thing abt black ppl in hurricanes is [racist joke that only a black person is allowed 2 make]'
I'd let Chelsea Clinton sit on my face (out of respect).
When did Bruce Springsteen start wearing Jonas Brothers tween vests?
'Jack' from 'Jack and Jill' was there
Randy Jackson, dawg.
Ugh my drunk uncle took his shirt off again.
Hey look it is that Dawson's Creek Scientology Tom Cruise broad who invented Siri [via iPhones]
Cute abs, bb!
The only real meme seemed to be 'Kanye West's skirt / leather kilt'
Would u know my name if I vibed with u in Heavens?
I srsly have no idea who these ppl are.
The Alive Guy from the Beatles
the broad who cheated on Robert Patterson just to get buzz for some shitty Tween Vampire Sex movie
There was a commercial for 'Django Unchained'
That basketball player who punched thru glass and ruined the season 4 his team bc he cut off his hand.
Isn't there a maggyzine abt the Rolling Stonesies?
Bill O'Reilly gave a speech abt how Obama sux
I wish that this was an MTV Movie/Video/Bullshit Awards so that there were more rappers, tweens, and SWAG. But I guess tween viewers don't have money to donate 2 charitable causes. All they care abt is themselves, buying singles off iTunes, and making things #trend on Twitter. Unfortunately, #trending would not help the shore, so I guess that's why all these 'American legends' came 2 play instead.
Is it time 2 'end' culture consumption?
Who will play at a benefit concert in 30 years?
Will u enjoy it or feel dead & empty on the inside watching ur fave artists of yesteryear?
Win Butler abandons the stage during pro-America sing-a-long with Bruce Springsteen bc he h8s the USABy Carles on 19 Mar 2012
There is nothing more degrading for an indie band than 'being pulled on stage' to do some sort of honky collab performance with a band that is 'legendary' and 'more famous' than you. The Arcade Fire has done everything they could to align themselves with Bruce Springsteen to trick people into thinking that they were 'legendary', when the only legendary thing about them is the way they found a biz model that allowed them to become the 'indie U2.' Anyways, at SXSW, Bruce Springsteen performed a show for a bunch of Tech Losers who thought they were watching something special, then he was like, "Hey lets sing a stupid song and bring a bunch of famous musicians up so that we feel like we are doing something special."
The results were terrible.
Win Butler hates 'our land' [via the USA], writing his album 'The Suburbs' about how he hates America. Sad to see him have to 'sell out' and sing about how the land he left was 'made 4 u and me.' Butler thanked Canada when he won his American Grammy award, like a typical terrorist MIA-wave sympathizing a-hole.
He jumps off the stage around the :50 second mark because he hates America so much. Or maybe he knew it was a dumb performance that marginalized the brand of his band and would lead 2 ppl thinking he was inauthentic. Maybe his hatred for America
All I know is that Regine LOOKS GOOD, bb!
Coverage from our SXSW correspondent who was LIVE at the show:
Bruce Springsteen KILLED IT at SXSW, playing a SUPER VIP show. The Arcade Fire were pulled on stage to sing an inspiring rendition of "This Land Is Your Land" and even RATM's Tom Morello showed up. They were joined on stage by a lot of important looking 'music industry legends.' Needless to say, the game was changed, and Bruce Springsteen is getting a LOT of SOUTHBY BUZZ.
This is srsly the worst video I've seen. Hella awkward. Not sure why it exists. Even Win Butler bailed on it, then he made his wife and brother 'oversell it' to make sure they didn't get in trouble.
But dear lord do I miss Regine...
It's sorta weird to see her not wearing some indie cheerleader fetish costume, but maybe this is what she wears 'around the house.'
Tom 'I care abt politics and shit like that' Morello. Even he loves America more than Win Butler, and he #occupies shit on the reg.
Anyways, it's a bad moment for the Arcade Fire. Win Butler should have known to stand up there and jimmy jangle a tambourine if the Arcade Fire are so intent on being perceived as 'the new Springsteen.'
Does Win Butler h8 America?
Should he be blacklisted from entering our country?
Is he a terrorists?
Will the Corrupt Indie Machine 'cover' this like it was a special performance, and give Win Butler a 'pass' for bailing on the stage?
Did he leave bc he h8s America, or because it was a dumb, honky display of white people kissing Bruce Springsteen's ass?
Should the American Indie Machine blacklist his expatriate a$$?
