For this weeks blog post I figured there is really only one thing I should be writing about. Two words, Syracuse Mayfest. Now, now, I know this is a touchy subject put don’t stop reading right away. The fact of the matter is we can’t change who they have booked, and its very obvious we can’t just call up Nicki to do it. So you know the phrase, if you can’t beat em, join em! And while no one wants to go to our annual million dollar concert to listen to pop-alternative boy bands who, no doubt in my mind DID get their start on Myspace, we just might have to. We can all play a game with ourselves that for every band UU has booked that sucks, which to my knowledge is four, fine five since Bloc Party sucks too, we add another “mystery drug” to our pitcher of jungle juice. I’m sure most of us will only be attending this so-called-concert on various types of drugs anyway!
On a different note, I am very proud with the way we, as angry, and apparently highly influential, students handled it. We made various memes bashing the University’s poor choice in music, made a short film comparing SU officials to Hitler himself, AND got “thingsidratherdothangotoblocparty” to trend worldwide. First the internationally recognized fight with Nicki, and now this, you guys never cease to amaze me! So just go, for the hell of it just go. If nothing else we can show “Timeflies” and the other lame artists they have book what Otto’s Army really thinks of their music.
