I Am Coming Around To The Big Gay Sound That Is Coldplay

Yesterday I came out to the rest of Rock Club and admitted I liked the new Coldplay.

Here was everyone’s response:

Sacklunch: That is not gay at all.” Gosh, I agree, and furthermore, I think it’s a sign of emotional growth that you can say....waaaiiitttt a minute, you’re making fun of me!

Potsy: I think we're all a little gay for Coldplay. They've made some good music. I've never shied away from them. They'll definitely get you laid. But it could be with a dude if you're not careful. Classic Potsy: a pragmatic acceptance of the realities of life coupled with a wry, Gregory Peck-type observation.

Jumbo Slice: I do not like Coldplay. Okay, maybe I did when they first came out. Then I hated their stuff after that (for good reason). Except for this dancing in this video:

As for their new stuff...I'll admit it has sucked me in a bit. At least the first song is pretty good. I don't think I've heard the 2nd song. Typical Jumbo Slician rhetoric, where he disagrees with you, while simultaneously appearing to agree with you, so that he won’t lose his self-styled nice guy image. Jesus, you sicken me. Note also the now-standard word repetition/word omission mistakes (the kind that spellcheck won't catch) that appear in every one of his e-mails and posts. You must have a growth the size of a cinder block pressing on your cerebral cortex.

Actually, the vid Jumbo links to makes me think I’ve made the right decision to initiate phase 1 of Coldplay-liking. I like bands that have a sense of humor about themselves, without going over the edge into self-parody (hello, Dave Grohl). Chris Martin was funny in Extras and here we see he has made a video of two old fuckers dancing in thongs. I like that.

So what does everyone think? You want to judge me? Please walk a mile in my homo shoes before you do so. Thank you.

For the record, Ken (NTYAMB) first alerted me to that video.

I heard the other song off their new album last night. Not good. Put me squarely in the "Do Not Like" camp.

Nice picture.

I didn't like the second song at first but it grows on you.

You may have just earned yourself a removal from my blogroll for this one, fellas. There is an endless list of painful and/or embarassing procedures I'd go through before I ever listened to Coldplay intentionally.

As we are gay for Coldplay, in turn, Coldplay is gay for all of us.
