"PC Load Letter"? What the fuck does that mean?
That concert DVD sucked the biggest hairy balls ever. First of all, let's note the title: Top of the World Tour. So Top of the World is a Patty Griffin song I've always loved and the Chicks do a great version of it. One might expect to actually hear it in the concert even. Ah, no. But they did include the music video. Um, I have You Tube, thanks guys.
But you know why it really sucked? And I can see how this sounded great on paper, but each song had a jillion cuts, each shot from a different concert. Meaning: different outfits, different backdrops, different hairstyles, it really ruined the whole point of watching the conert. No intimacy, no connection, it was the worst idea ever. Avoid that DVD.
Many many thanks to Kiwi Derek for The Verizon Exit Interview. Fucking hysterical.
