The Bright Eyes of Texas Are Upon You

Don't know if there are any fans of the band Bright Eyes out there, but I don't think this has made the national news quite yet, regarding a performance by Bright Eyes. The lead singer is a guy named Conor Oberst:

The 24-year-old singer started on a familiar path, peppering the show with between-song rants against the war in Iraq and President Bush. But as the night wore on and he drained yet another bottle of beer, Mr. Oberst turned surly.

"I don't know if you know this, but I hate your [expletive] state," he blurted. "I'd put a [expletive] gun to my head before I'd live in your state."

It was one of those rare moments when an audience doesn't know how to respond. Do you laugh? Boo? Cheer? Most fans reacted with awkward silence.

Well, you could tell him to go [expletive] himself.

Then later he said:

"If you came to this show tonight, you're not a normal Texan," he said after another long chug of beer. "If you were a normal Texan, you'd probably be roping steers and raping Indians."

Not true. I didn't attend the show, and I was busy raping steers and roping Indians. Sheesh, get it straight dude.
