Determine a band's leader by analyzing a publicity photo.

A band's inclusion on this blog reflects neither an endorsement nor a criticism of its music. This post is merely intended as a spotlight on the inner political workings of a collection of individuals who are in the midst of a cooperative, creative endeavor.

The Process:
You, dear reader, please answer the question, "Who's in charge here?"

After sufficient discussion has taken place, a verdict can then be passed based on a majority vote.

Band: Hindge
Genre: Kinda R.E.M.-ish

The Verdict (UPDATED!)

Thanks for being gentle. "Kirk Cameron" and "Monkey" are perfectly acceptable things to be called (though perhaps these names are at odds with each other -- does Kirk Cameron acknowledge the existence of monkeys?).

This was the only picture in my possession of the wonderful Carbondale supergroup, Hindge. Please note that the picture is missing one of the band members -- the lead singer was not actually present. If you asked someone who was witness to the majesty of Hindge, they would probably say out-of-focus dork on the left was probably the real guy in charge. Monkey in the middle was just the drummer.

The picture was shot by a very drunk photographer who had wandered over from his motel to an adjacent storage facility place where the band was practicing at, in a 12x12 room with one light socket that they plugged all their amps into.

Rock 'N Roll!!!

Oh, I almost forgot.

The middle guy...?

Kirk Cameron. He's the only guy who is in focus. Creationists always want their leaders to be in focus. Don't get me started on peanut butter and bananas.

I don't first I was leaning toward in-focus guy. But if they are REM-ish...maybe the guy on the left.

No. Even Michael Stype is always in focus. I vote: monkey in the middle.

Quite lovely religious vids, Jess!

I always wondered about peanut butter and the spontaneous creation of life.

And the second video just stresses my life's philosophy -- "Banana is God. God is Banana."

Now, now, splotchy - sometimes a banana is just a banana. But it did get me thinking about how God in his greatness must have intended the male member to fit so comfortably in one's hand. And how he put a knob on the end of it so you couldn't pull too hard. The Onanist's Nightmare!!!!!!
