So, here’s the situation.
I’ve hit a minor lull in my day, so I’m reading comics.
Specifically, I’m reading Phonogram: The Singles Club #4.
As long-time readers know, I’ve raved about Phonogram before; it’s a cool comic about the power of music and magic. The Singles Club, the second series, takes place on a single night in a single club, Never on a Sunday, and shows the events that happen there from several different perspectives.
The fourth issue is about the deejays at Never on a Sunday, Seth Bingo and Silent Girl.
There’s a piece of dialogue that just smacked me upside the face: “If you dance when we play Annie, I promise, cross my heart, never-ever-ever lie to you, that we’ll play a Fall Out Boy record.”
The reason this smacked me?
I had to listen to some Fall Out Boy recently.
No, really. Honest. It was work-related.
I didn’t know anything about Fall Out Boy, except that I saw a Cubs game on WGN last year where they sang “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” during the seventh inning stretch.
So, this Fall Out Boy listen. Work-related, as I said.
I had to scrub my brain out afterwards of its godawful-wretchedness.
Seriously. People listen to that?
I note, with some amusement, that Fall Out Boy doesn’t even merit an annotation at the end of issue #4. 😆
Okay, back to the comics. I just had to share.
