"The houselights dimmed, and footage from Luis Bunuel's 1929 trippy surrealist short, "Un Chien Andalou," flashed on stage. Following the shots of slicing up eyeballs and awkward gropings, the Pixies took the stage..."
Chip: "Un Chien Andalou is my third favorite work by Bunuel. Just kidding. I don't know who Bunuel is, and I resent the Pixies for rubbing my face in my own cultural ignorance."
"The screams of appreciation erupted when they came back with "Slow Wave" and "Into the White," a slow, steady dirge played while a fog machine filled the room."
Richard: "A fog machine? Are you a hipster band or an 80's hair metal stadium act?"
But perhaps some of the hippest hipsters in attendance were there primarily to check out Pitchfork-approved opening act Fuck Buttons. The reviewer, however, wasn't impressed, but doesn't he realize he'd come off as hipper if he championed their shenanigans:
"There didn't seem to be a whole lot of la la love for Fuck Buttons, the opening noise-duo act. The English pair came out, stood around, turned some knobs and played one long, boring track full of blips, boops and bass."
The LJ-World's Monday "lifestyle magazine" continues to do important work, such as today's piece on the current face of campus fashion at KU. According to the article, "the height of campus fashion happens to be the running short. And not just any run-of-the-mill jogging apparel, but two certain styles of Nike running short, the basic Tempo and the sleeker Pacer."
Chip: "The shorts are wonderfully comfortable, but not easy to hide a boner in."
Naturally, the article turns to local fashion maven (and LC favorite) Katy Seibel for commentary:
“There’s a lot of sartorial diversity on campus, but generally speaking, I think campus fashion is a more casual, comfortable version of current trends."
Personally, we're hoping for a trend that involves more sophistication, such as little black cocktail dresses worn without panties. But that's just us.
