Posted by Carlos Gabriel Ruiz on January 11th, 2008

What did you do today?

I listened to The Magnetic Fields 69 Love Songs in its entirety (Stephin Merritt should win a Nobel Peace Prize or something) on vinyl while drinking a Starbucks Caramel Frappacino and then, because all my fans demanded it, I came up with 50 All New Cool Band Names. I would have had the whole afternoon to bask in my glory but I had to close the record store and deal with people like you all night long.

What? Not everyone is born rich; some of us have to work menial laborious jobs until the world finally recognizes our utter genius.

Luckily, I dont have a menial laborious job: I work at a record store. Kind of makes you wonder why you spent all your parents money to go to college only to get a job that you despise. (Thats why when I thought of going to college I dropped acid instead and thought about cool band names that I could eventually call my band whenever I got around to learning how to play the guitar my mom bought me for my 13th birthday. BTW, I just finished learning all the chords last year, so watch out world!)

Back to the point at hand, here we go– Pretentious Record Store Guys 50 All New Cool Band Names I Came Up With Today.
