How do you NOT like Blanche?  I don't get it.  I played "Garbage Picker" for somebody, a country music fan.  She said it was "stupid."  Huh?  Toby Keith isn't stupid?  Alan Jackson isn't stupid?  What the fuck!

yeah, i don't get it either. i've had a few country music people that don't like it, but people who say they hate all that is country say they love it.... oh well....my mom even liked it. i had superstition on and she said it was very soothing. :)

Yeh, I have found that, I am trying to convert all of my school mates, but they are being difficult lol.
I once made my mate Bianca listen to Blanche all through an English lesson, she complained cos she had a Blanche song in her head for the rest of the day.
They will thank me one day :D

I love that video to death. That is my favorite Blanche song, and the video made me nervous and uncomfortable and enthralled just like their music. Wonderful!

I played "bluebird" on my little boombox for my step-mother(huge country fan), and she said the music was good, but the singer sucked. And I was like, "That's one of the best things about the band!!". She said that he (Dan) sounded like he had tampons stuck up his nose, and that he didn't have the right to sing country music. :angry:

Sidenote: Wonderful video by the way. The vocal stuff between Dan and Feeny was awesome.

It is tricky,
I guess that it means that you never know what may happen in the future, you may dye a horrid horrid death, but you dont know it, but someday you will find out... :blink:

I don't know what to do...I already have the 45...but I really want the snot green vinyl...

Is there anyone here who owns the record in the snot green variety, and could you tell me how satisfactory the snottiness of the color is?

The setting looks to me like a "prayer meeting", with Blanche being the preachers for the day. The message is that someday you will find out what exists after life, which is the subject of much preaching. In the audience are old people--close to death themselves.

Cool video. Thanks!

I thought it was beautiful. And of course, very depressing .. But tactfully done for a Blanche video. I mean, it wasn't so depressing that it was stupid. It was quaint and simple, and very Blanchey. That's the only way I can think to describe it. And I'm so happy that they used Someday to do a video to. It's just very .. Unique, I guess.

I love the way you've got to pay attention to them visually as well as with your ears. If you cover your ears and vocus on visuals, and it's fucking beautiful, and you can't stop watching. Or you cover your eyes and the music is so fucking complex and you don't know what to concentrate on in the music, but it's all wonderful. And then all together it's an upright musical orgasm.

Yes, I loves my Blanche...haha
