generally speaking, fans are irritating.

i'm sure that lots of people would disagree with me, but i firmly believe that crowded house fans are among the most annoying people in the world.

this is due in large part to the sheer longevity of the finns. when you have a musical legacy spanning multiple decades, you are bound to have fans with multiple-decade-spanning fandom. those fans show up at concerts and talk incessantly about the last show... or that amazing show back in the 80s or the farewell tour or the show where neil wore that shirt or had that haircut or when they sang that song and omg, where were you when you heard that paul died? by the way, did you know that he was really short? oh, and the new guy, matt, well, i waited for hours to get his autograph and he came out the back door with these two girls wearing dresses that were THAT short and he just had this big happy shit-eating grin and you could totally hear him saying, "i'm with the band!"

ahem. one-upmanship is alive and well.

cam and i went to see crowded house at club nokia last night, and it was a great show. musically. the fans i could have done without.
