Well, normally we prefer when a band says they will never get back together, that they never get back together. But The Stone Roses getting back together has the potential (potential) of being really good (or being really bad). And, the Stone Roses really only had one good record, so its not like the Smiths who are like mini-Gods of people 40 and over. We love the Stone Roses because they informed Oasis who informed us.
According to NME, “The Manchester legends confirm two concerts at Heaton Park in 2012 and reveal they are working on new material.” The original lineup of frontman Ian Brown, guitarist John Squire, bassist Mani and drummer Reni are making new tunes, too. Let’s hope they play the classics.
Sometimes we feel like even though we as humans have screwed things up for the most part, we may just figure out a way to make it through… but luckily, something always happens that takes that thought and pisses all over it. Today’s urination was supplied by ‘the public’.
-’The public’ made facebook groups in response to the noisy yet biodegradable and compostable bags that Sun Chips implemented last year.
-’The public’ weighed the potential benefits vs. disadvantages in the argument between using materials that do a better job of disappearing but could potentially ‘wake up a roommate’ (yes, real complaint, and a facebook protest group was named ‘I wanted SunChips but my roommate was sleeping…’) – and decided that they would much rather not wake up their roommate or deal with the noise of a crinkling chip bag, and are fine with filling landfills at a faster rate than they have the potential of decomposing at.
-And “the public” complained loud enough that Pepsi/Frito-Lays thought they may lose a few bucks and pulled the whole line of compostable bags.
So hats off “public”, apparently the ‘least you could do to help out’ doesn’t involve eating potato chips and sitting on your ass…
(Side note: our PR response to somebody’s complaint that their roommate would wake up if they ate Sun Chips in the noisy bag would be: WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU SNEAKING AROUND EATING SUN CHIPS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT! MAYBE THE PROBLEM ISN’T THE NOISE AND JUST THAT YOU EITHER HAVE THE MUNCHIES OR EATING ISSUES)
