How about "bet ya can't watch it even once?"

Once was enough.
2006-09-10 09:57:23 AM  
It's true, I couldn't sit through the whole thing. Boring...

/Suddenly it's 2004?
2006-09-10 10:10:34 AM  
All their shiat's the same: Boring, stupid, and pretentious.
2006-09-10 10:20:09 AM  
Managed about 20 seconds
2006-09-10 10:47:06 AM  
DD are sure a lot better than half the shiat out today, I'll tell ya that. They cover War Pigs, and it is awesome.

I hate mimes and they were way too mimey.
2006-09-10 11:49:11 AM  
they suck but I would hit that ass bigtime. that chick is freaky nutcase hot.
2006-09-10 12:11:45 PM  
Betcha I can, subby. Gag.

My 16-year-old daughter's a huge fan of them, saw their show recently and was thrilled when she got to meet them afterwards and they stood around and chatted. Sounds like they're very nice, fan-friendly artists, but DAMN, that's some weird-ass crap they call music.

/No, you Farkers can't meet my daughter
2006-09-10 12:17:33 PM

/that is all.
2006-09-10 12:29:54 PM  
I love these guys. You need to see them live, ya old farking farts.

Until you've heard their version of War Pigs you just ain't lived.

/old fart
2006-09-10 12:30:51 PM  
mas cool!
2006-09-10 12:32:40 PM  
Pretentious indie rock. Not particularly good. Meh.
2006-09-10 12:41:29 PM  
DD rocks...I've seen them live twice, and used to see Laura in Harvard Sq. when she was the 9ft bride. She was all decked out in a vintage wedding dress, standing on some kind of stool. When you put change in her cup she'd give you a daisy with a flourish. Call them pretentious, but I think they're high art, and great they make great music.
2006-09-10 12:41:39 PM  
Hey betona let your daughter know I have a bouquet of flowers, 2 Dresden Dolls tickets, some mime makeup and suspenders, and I'll be over at 7.
2006-09-10 12:55:19 PM  

That was her? I always shuddered when I saw her. Creepy-- but classic.

And the song was good. It had a bridge and everything.
2006-09-10 01:03:18 PM  
Yeah, that was her, her name's actually Amanda, I got confused with "Laura Palmer", and she was an 8 foot bride, hence the name of her production co.

2006-09-10 01:14:22 PM  
How come this 2nd rate college band crap gets greenlit and everything I submit gets rejected?

/Thus are the mysteries of Fark...
2006-09-10 01:17:38 PM  
I like the Dresden Dolls, and even I wasn't impressed.
2006-09-10 01:19:51 PM  
I farking hate mimes. It pushes my repressed violence levels all too high. Makes me wish I had a baseball bat.
2006-09-10 01:31:31 PM  
That's rock? I thought it was like an intro to an actual song. I waited 3:38 expecting them to break in with the instruments at any second.
2006-09-10 01:35:08 PM  
I loved it :D

/Yeah, I'm weird like that.
2006-09-10 01:43:56 PM  
Girl Anachronism is a heavy, angry tune by them. They are one of the better bands out there.
2006-09-10 01:47:15 PM  
I had to bail about 20 seconds in. I was starting to taste vomit in my mouth.
2006-09-10 02:01:37 PM  
Hey betona

Tell your daughter I'll be over with two DD tickets, a mop, half a pack of swisher sweets, my grandmother's skeleton, 6 pieces of german chocolate cake, a tub of jello, and 30 feet of copper cabling.
2006-09-10 02:41:16 PM  
Started out as a nice little novelty number, then got all emo and I shut it off.

These people are posers. If I want "music to cut yourself to", there are dozens of good bands from the 70s and 80s which already have it covered.
2006-09-10 02:41:31 PM  
2006-09-10 02:45:22 PM  
Yeah these guys suck. Give me more pop-star Supernova.
2006-09-10 02:52:40 PM  
It's old but good. Meh. Not everyone likes everything. Anyone stupid enough to try to push their aesthetics on someone else is an idiot, and deserves what they get. When people learn to stop speaking about preferential and relative things in absolute terms the world will be a much happier place.

But then, this is just the interweb.

Welcome to the new random-Youtube-video tab on Fark. How is this any more worth discussing than some angst-ridden 14-year-old?
2006-09-10 03:11:11 PM  
i'll echo the sentiment that even as a Dresden Dolls fan, i was unimpressed. i dare say, i was pretty embarrassed throughout the whole thing.
2006-09-10 04:21:46 PM  
Wow. So the Dresden Dolls really are as stupid and pretentious as I expected them to be. I mean, the singer writes publically about her piano teachers repeatedly "seduced" her.
2006-09-10 05:08:20 PM  
i was really looking forward to seeing these guys at a new year's show a couple year's back.......musically not bad/not great but the drummer acting like a mime thing really ruined it for me (and many others)...kinda met them after the show backstage.....the girl totally reminded me of every drama major i knew in college...and not in a good way
2006-09-10 06:25:04 PM  
2006-09-10 06:46:23 PM  
Wow, a riff that's just a bad Brecht ripoff and a singer who can't carry a tune. Subby is right, I couldn't sit through it once. Did I try to browse Fark and wind up on the Jane Magazine site?
2006-09-10 07:02:17 PM  
Wow, ok, I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt so I went and checked out the "War Pigs" cover. Got news for ya, it kinda sucked. It's not like they changed the arrangement or tempo or anything. More of a 'copy' than a cover, really.
2006-09-10 07:54:08 PM  
Very, very interesting... but stupid.
2006-09-10 07:57:56 PM  
Man alive is she hot.

Musics not half bad either, but its not really my genre.
2006-09-10 08:33:57 PM  
bad music + cheesy gimmick = cult status?
2006-09-10 11:41:20 PM  
The beer-activated girl link at the end is much more amusing.
2006-09-11 02:13:48 PM  
Hey betona,
Tell your daughter that I'll be there at 7 with the liquid heroin I traded the DD tickets for, along with natewill's severed head in a bowling ball case and gilgagigamesh's liver laid out on a cake tray with lit birthday candles for her to extinguish. She knows I am ever the jealous type ;)
2006-09-11 08:35:23 PM  
gilgigamesh: Until you've heard their version of War Pigs you just ain't lived.
2006-09-11 10:59:41 PM  
wow that just enraged me...i would gut them like a farking fish if they came within my reach...
2006-09-12 07:20:06 AM  
I love DD, but I also know Fark + DD doesn't mix. Please post a boring classic rock song next time.
