Actual conversation conducted mere moments ago between myself (TCC) and the future Mrs. Curmudgeon (TFMC) about the issue of hipster music magazine Magnet that just arrived in our mailbox:
TFMC: You know, Sleater-Kinney is on the cover of Magnet. I think that’s the first time I’ve seen women on the cover.
TCC: Uh huh.
TFMC: I also think it’s the first time I’ve seen people smiling on the cover. Usually they’re too cool for school.
TCC: Yeah, those girls are sly. They have sly smiles on the cover.
TFMC: Uh huh.
TCC: But not, you know, sly like Sally Forth.
There you go, kids: indie rock to mass-market newspaper comics in three moves! I have problems.
