I Don't Like Mondays.

Posted by Dan Friday, December 15, 2006
I've really never been much of a fan of Bob Geldof, so it was kind of a suprise to me the other day when I heard this song on the radio and I actually liked it. It's one of the few Boomtown Rats songs that comes off more like something Queen would do. It also frightens me a little that I certainly understand the sentiment behind the song. Mind you, I'm not advocating mass murder at a schoolyard by any means... but every once in a while, something happens that makes me just see red.

I found this through Jeff Chon's excellent Shrillmatic blog, and it's an amazing piece of autobiography. I've spoken about the state of the comics industry several times with online friends Gail and Johanna, and though I don't comment on her blog a lot, I think Lea Hernandez is dead on accurate when she's ranted about the "frat house" mentality that exists at the big dinosaur publishers Marvel and DC.

Anyway, here's the link... We Need a Rape

  2. You never heard I Don't like Mondays? Really? I can't say I'm a big Geldof fan but I do like that sond and he did make an excellent Pink in the Wall The sentiment behind Band Aid is genuine, but "Do They Know it's Christmas" is a terrible, terrible song both.
