It's impossible to differentiate between bands because their names are so freaking similar! They usually follow one of the following formats:
1) The ________
2) ______ and the ________
3) ______ (animal) or (animal) _______
4) The _____ _____ ______ [3 words that are usually totally unrelated, like The Thor Baking Box]
5) Some variation of 1, 2, 3 or/and 4
It’s like bands use the same algorithm when coming up with their name. How am I supposed to tell the difference between the Knee Kicking Hares and the Shin Hitting Rabbits?! Potato Helicopters vs the Starchy Planes?
So rather than spend too much time thinking about it, I’ll just be over here listening to Deerhunter. Or is it Deerhoof? Maybe it’s Deer Tick? No, I’m sure it’s The Dear Hunter. Perhaps it's the Dear & The Departed? I DON’T EVEN KNOW ANYMORE. Maybe, perhaps, possibly there's a woodland creature somewhere in the name....
What were you listening to this week? Using the above formats, what would you name your band? I’m a member of The Hulk Scone Rectangle, the musical rivals of The Thor Baking Box (TBB). Ooooohhh, game on TBB. Game on.
A rather slow mail week again. My mailbox is starving people! STARVING! Just kidding, that fatbox could use a diet. I'm thinking no carbs from now on—those sparkles from Kay's letter last week practically caused it to fall into a sugar coma. No, mailbox! A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips. You'll regret it. And I am not holding your hand while you sob into a tub of ice cream again.

If you have any music recommendations, let me know! I'm happy to add more artists to my confusing-band-names-that-I'll-totally-mix-up list.
I hope you all have a great week!
