Fallen Soldiers Pt. 1

I write a music column over at Guy.com.  Currently I’m working on one about Blink 182.  After several days, I’ve finally gotten a handle on it and I got a first draft.  Unfortunately, that means some stuff had to be cut, including this wonderful paragraph:

” If the members of Blink 182 are as insecure and neurotic as their lyrics indicate, then this dismissive attitude of their own music makes sense: it’s a form of protection.  By acting like immature clowns it insulates them from criticism.  Disliking their music becomes your problem because, well, what did you expect? (Of course I don’t believe that members of a multi-platinum selling band are as insecure as their lyrics suggest anymore than I believe J.K. Rowling is a witch or Stephanie Meyer is a vampire.  Then again, considering her sales, maybe I shouldn’t be so sure about Rowling.) ”

Sniff.  I’ll miss you, lovely paragraph.
