two questions of vital import  
One - is gmail fucking around for everyone, or is it just me?

Two - am I the only one who thinks it would have been 100% more lulzy if they'd called themselves the Weather Veins?

- a Rachel who STILL hasn't had access to either song

1. Nope, all good for me.

2. A+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ :D

Also, I assume it's the dial-up that means you can't hear their songs, right?

And yes, it is the thrice-damned dialup. Also, if you've emailed me anything since my last email, I haven't got it. Gmail just pretends it's loading for about half an hour and then I give up. D:

Ok, well, c+p'd from my email:

ANYWAY! Okay, here's the thing. Really really REALLY inconveniently, the world and its dog has already booked off that week, so I can't be quite as flexible as I'd hoped. As it stands, I am off work on Sunday 9th and Monday 10th, working Tuesday and Wednesday, off Thursday and Friday and Saturday (although I'm working Saturday night, so would have to leave in the afternoon). I can *probably* finangle it so that I get Wednesday off, or at the very least the night shift -- and ditto Saturday night -- so could get up to London for the evening? Either way, I shall get the train asap after getting out of work, be it at 4pm or 10 :) What do you think? It's really unlucky, I've got like 7 hours next week but bloody loads the week of the 10th! But c'est la vie. And I may be able to get more dates off, I just won't know it until, well, very possibly a day or two beforehand, so ...

Which probably makes very little sense, altogether! Um. Does it?! Either way, EEEEEEE! What say you, does this sound like something you could work with? :DDDD

BAHAH. but then people would accuse them of letting pwentz name their band, because oh, how that is wentzian. ;)

It's not wentzian, it's Northern Downpour-ian :P

lol well yes, but the wit of it, its spirit, is wentzian. XD

Ahh, well. xD Okay, true.

haha, does that make me Wentzian? otoh, his band is named Fall Out Boy, which is the least pun-y thing evar. Maybe Ryan just got high and realised HIS veins are a IV line's dream...

The Weather Veins would have been awesome :D

(gmail fine for me.)

Also, Ryan is as changeable as a weather vane! Although perhaps he does not acknowledge that about himself...

On my way to work this morning, I listened to the radio show hosts mocking the name, and I had to shrug and go, "Yeah." Weather Veins would have amused me. Puns are the highest form of wit, don't ya know?

It's so weird to think of radio stations even picking up on the whole thing. Here, I think I heard Nine in the Afternoon ONCE on the radio.

Perhaps Ryan is too ironically hipster for wit now? :D? :D?

This particular radio station considers itself alternative. They played Nine in the Afternoon a bunch when it came out, and I've heard That Green Gentleman and Northern Downpour once or twice.

One can never be too ironically hipster for wit, but I suppose one can be too ironically hipster for puns. *shakes head* Sad.
