Has anybody here watched The Returned (Les Revenants)? I think it's from France, but the Sundance channel had a season 1 marathon on today and holy shit. Beautifully shot, excellently written and acted, creepy and intriguing, just all around great stuff. I've only watched the first couple episodes so far, but luckily I had the forethought to record the whole marathon, so I know what I'll be doing for the next couple days.
That show was still insane though. Although, that might have just been the huge amount of teenage girls punching each other in the face to get up on stage.
I showed up for the last 10 minutes of her set that year and was so confused as to what was going on, but it looked like fun. I'm not a fan, but I will try to not miss her set this year as I am assuming it will be another spectacle.
I wasn't really a fan either until I finally listened to Matangi a couple weeks ago. Holy fuck, that album is good. It seriously makes me want to go back and edit my "best of 2013" lists to include it because it definitely was if the of last year.
Have any of you guys seen MIA live? If so, does she usually have a live band?
I saw her on the Colbert Report after her last album came out and it seems like there was a band backing her, if I remember correctly. I definitely remember some lady that just danced circles around her the whole time while she just stood there in her jacket and sunglasses looking super cool.
It's just impossible for me to comprehend that anything could have been better than the mind melting experience I had at Sigur Rós.
This is how I felt about Primus. Nothing I saw that weekend came anywhere near Primus. I think after the festival my top 10 list was
. . .
It doesn't even make sense to me that someone can objectively say that anything was better than Primus, but here we are.
Whoa, whoa, hey now. Nobody said anything about "better than Primus." I just meant on that night, in that moment in time. Primus was a completely different night, so it doesn't count. However, I will say this: not my favorite Primus show. They were amazing and it was one of the best sets the weekend, but still number 2 in terms of Primus overall for me.

I didn't see Tame Inhaler at all, so I can't say if you're right or wrong. It's just impossible for me to comprehend that anything could have been better than the mind melting experience I had at Sigur Rós.
