Gluttony: way more fun than it ought to be! And today we once again gorge ourselves on the about-to-be-broken dreams of the lonely denizens of Craigslist. I ain't gonna lie: I'm not above laughing at the misfortunes, bad pictures and grammatical abominations of people who are willing to post these sorts of things for all to see. Cruel? Maybe. But what is music about besides putting your life, your hopes and your soul on display for the world to see? If you didn't want anybody to know about your failings, misgivings and irreparable personality flaws, why would you post these things on Craiglist? Fucked if I know. And yes, I get it, I'm going to hell for this. C'est la vie.

Now join us as we ask ourselves what the fuck exactly is happening in the Craigslist "Musicians" Community.

* What's with the scare quotes? Is her grandmother coming back from the dead? Is Lisa Gooch's website actually a portal to another dimension — a dimension where all reality is re-sized and accompanied by an animated GIF? Probably.

* And if you don't have lungs, you probably don't read Craigslist. Because you're dead. Billy Gibbons laughs at death.

* "Ya, we're pretty fucking evil, but we still like to kickback and relax with some good, old-fashioned sober misogyny. We bought the logo in Gatlinburg." (Side note: You may want to call Seth Graves for that video once you get the band up and running, bros.)

* Dear Craigslist, I'm stuck holding up this ceiling and the drummer just keeps throwing his sticks at me. Please send help.

*He's topping the charts guys, and now he needs you to join him on his world tour. His private plane s fueled by self-delusion and the fonts of late 70s prog albums. Ride Zeztor's coattails and you're gonna go far kid.
