    hi, that’s my blog, the pony problem (ian mackaye post). it isn’t supposed to be humor, it’s just the worst blog on the internet. and not because i think it’s cool to have the worst blog on the internet, just because it *is*. that said, i guess i thought ian mackaye was in rites of spring, but he wasn’t. that’s why i shouldn’t talk about music in public or on the inter-web. anyway mr. mackaye did make an annoying face at me at the silver jews concert in DC in 2008, i don’t know why i chose that moment to rehash it. but for some reason it came bubbling up. that youtube clip was awesome. i am not a hipster. thanks!

    Hey Rebecca, thanks for writing… it’s good to get your input, and thanks for letting me know you’re not a hipster! Actually, I was very sincere when I said you knew what you were talking about – though MacKaye wasn’t in Rites of Spring, he was in Embrace, which was one of the three big “emocore” bands back in the mid 80s that have informed what has now become emo… and then followed Egg Hunt, and then Fugazi, and everything branched off from there… But please, continue to talk about whatever you want – I hope I didn’t offend you with the linking and hipster-calling – I should be aware, especially considering the undertones of this blog… Anyway, thanks for dropping in and giving your two cents – I really appreciate it.
