Here’s what I was thinking at the art-opening/loft party I attended Saturday night, as the duo Magic Milk prepared to begin their first ever live performance: our economy is tanking with 10% unemployment. The Supreme Court just ruled against campaign finance limits. Ted Kennedy’s seat was lost to a GOP’er and there’s little hope for any serious health care reform bill. Tens of thousands of people just died in Haiti. For the love of god, why bring more misery into the world by forming another crap rock band?
Who knew they’d be fantastic? So much for knee-jerk cynicism.
