She's just revealed her secret identity, besides being a law prof, and a blogger, she's also King Buzzo of The Melvins.Either that or she's talking about a reflection visible in the top picture.
Yeah, it's the top picture. But let me say that I have -- despite my advanced age -- seen The Melvins in concert. About a decade ago, in the Stock Pavilion, with L7.
They've been around a long time themselves, they formed in 1985.And that answer was evasive, not an actual denial.(you could claim you are 'seeing' a band even as you 'perform' with them)(and I'm being 'silly')
I do have big hair.
I saw the Melvins too. They have Stan Lee, right? I think the last time I saw them was my second year in college (1988-1989) in Oakland at a place called the Omni, where a year before I saw Motorhead.
No, it's the Dickies who have Stan Lee, not the Melvins. I don't think I've ever seen the Melvins. Nevermind.
While I can't find you in the reflections, I can actually see myself ... oops ... too close to the monitor.
Th' Legendary Shack Shakers on September 29: they were fantastic when I saw them forever ago. But their current CD sounds nothing like what I heard then. Anyone seen them this tour?
That color was the color of airliner cockpits for a long time. I think that the Russians still paint their bomber cockpits that color, as well.
I saw the Melvins as an opening act for Nine Inch Nails around '94 or so (yes, the jazz guy had a metalhead phase too). I didn't care for them myself, and neither did most of the audience--they practically got booed off the stage.
I don't want anyone to ever paint anything that color ever again.Yes! Yes! Yes! That color has fallen into the same category as that gosh-awful "baby-sh**" gold and harvest green that were so popular there back in the '70s. Meaning, if perchance I should live a second lifetime, I still won't be ready to see those paint colors again.There oughta be a law, damn it!
And while we're at it, no more mauve (s-o-o-o '80s).Except maybe on lips.
That color came from the 80s. Everyone discovered it as if it was amazing that it had lain fallow so long. It was exciting for about a year, and then it was painful. And I'm begging you not to get a car in that color.
And I mean teal, not mauve. Mauve is a respectable color, used in the right place. And it's not just for genitalia anymore.
used in the right place.That would be the problem.And ... LOL.
I think I spent too much time in mauve-and-teal offices in the '80s and early '90s. I tend to lump 'em together.
I'll bet Bartow and Belle Lettre don't go around linking the color mauve and genitalia on their blogs, Ann ... .I'm suprised at you--a law professor, and feminist!; )
lots of cool typography in Madison
Prof. Althouse, did you post those photos knowing that the subsequent discussion would focus on The Melvins and the colors mauve and teal?(sounds like an especially strange episode of Sesame Street, . . . today's episode was brought to you by . . .)(which leads, somehow, to this photo)
XWL: No, I thought the interesting question was what is the "Weary Traveler Freehouse."
