I went to a LadyTron concert at the Commodore Ballroom last night with Zen and Sonneva. While it was entertaining, it wasn't nearly as good as the last LadyTron concert I was at there. For one thing, the opening band this time, some band called The Presets kind of sucked, in my opinion. Also, I found LadyTron's new music and stage presence to be more rock'n'roll, less techno electronica than last time. While I haven't heard their new albums, so this could just be an artifact of having seen them live, I much preferred their performance of the music from 604 than that of the newer stuff. It probably didn't help that the sound guys had the instrumentals cranked up so hard that I could hardly hear the singers' voices, let alone understand them. Thanks to that, the new music was unintelligable to me.
All in all, an enjoyable evening spent with some friends I haven't seen in too long.

Sturgeon's Revelation

In chatting with a coworker about MySpace, which I still know virtually nothing about, he commented that there's a lot of stupid people there.
I responded that he could simplify that statement, and he returned a puzzled look.
"There's a lot of stupid people", I said.
He then suggested that that sounds like Sturgeon's Law, as applied to the populace. Sounds just about right to me.
