Do we still need each other? I think we do.

I don't usually, but Saturday night I sent out a two part Tweet, one of those things where if you don't read them together you might misconstrue the meaning. I avoid this generally, believing Tweets should almost always be self contained, but I had been drinking since 3 p.m. and wasn't going to take tat much time away from paying attention to Guided By Voices' live set to sweat out how to edit the sentiments below to under 140 characters.

You see, it was during Guided by Voices' set that I realized that almost every "classic" and "ground breaking" and "seminal" band revered by the indie kids—which is actually now the mainstream, we can admit it—would have disappeared without the support of music writers back in the day. It's just one of those things that's easy to forget.
Anyway, carry on.
