A YEAR OF THE USELESS CRITIC

It occurred to me earlier that we didn't officially acknowledge the absolutely mind-shattering fact WE HAVE BEEN IN EXISTENCE FOR A YEAR, OMG.

So with that, I would like to say, to all our readers, loyal or otherwise: thank you. We love you. I remember when this was just a dream my freshman year- when I would walk around my dorm late at night and wonder, could I one day have a music blog? Would people read it? Um, of course it's not that much of a music blog, but you know...

so dreams become reality. <3 I hope, once I finish this silly thing called "school," to invest much more time and effort in the Useless Critic. but considering like- the millions of blogs out there in that ever-expanding blogosphere, the fact we've gotten ~ 18000 views is pretty impressive. staggering, even. I know that's not thatttt much, but it's still something!

With that being said:

Something great to wake up to for my fellow residents of western Pennsylvania:

I can just imagine: my first jury duty notice. "BRITTANY, HAVE FUN IN THE 911 TRIAL." Que es??? I'm actually anticipating the day I get that slip in the mail. I wouldn't mind at all. Read that, government? WHY YOU NOT SEND ME JURY DUTY?

I also like how Bin Laden blamed the United States for the climate problems. I was like "BITCH, HAVEN'T YOU HEARD OF CHINA."

Here are some films inspired by the recently deceased Salinger:

The New Pornographers new album is supposed to have Beirut and St. Vincent making guest appearances. It's due for early May. *comes*

Florence + the Machine is hitting up North America, but just major cities. Fuck that. Although apparently she's going to be in D.C. with the Temper Trap, but I haven't seen anything official yet, so....

but speaking of the Temper Trap, THEY will be in Cleveland come March 27th with the Kissaway Trail. And the Swedish band Love Is All will be in Cleveland on April 4 ... tickets are only 8 DOLLARS. ahhhhh.
