Do yall think that we will be able 2 come back from the grave and get the opportunity 2 play in a highly bloggable buzz band? Feel like maybe 'heaven' might be getting the opportunity to be in a 'relevant band' for 1-5 years, then getting a job as a bartender/at a burrito shop after no1 comes 2 ur concerts n e more.
Can't believe some people 'make music' for a living.
I don't know what I want 2 do for a living. Feel like I am 'good at a lot o things', but I might be spreading myself too thin. I hope I find a passion when I go away 2 school next August... 'sigh.'
Worried about dying and there being 'nothing.' Starting to 'feel mortal.' Think I am no longer a tween any more. Time 2 grow up.
Still feel like Coachella should have 'given this bro medical attention.' Don't think it was fair 2 have him bleeding on every1 just to 'look hardcore.' h8 when bands 'aren't about image' but are 'about some anti-image image.' Wonder if that girl is 'scared of his blood giving her AIDS/heppy-tyte-bro.' Wonder if she feels like she 'just saw her uncle get out of the shower.'
Just think that healthcare should be free.
sort of wish that Alice Glass / Uffie / Feist / Jewel would slit her wrists on stage and bleed on to my face. Feel like that would be a 'unique concert experience.' Would probs blog about it/post that I 'got bled on' to my facebook/twitter

Best Coast played some sponsored event for Microsoft last night, and basically 'who cares'... except one member of the band Best Coast was missing. Former drummer Ali Koehler was missing. In her place was some other random dude who doesn't even look alt. Reportedly, there was also a 'fourth member' of the band who was some random studio musician bro.
Ali Koehler used to be branded as a member of the band, but now she has been left out in the buzz cold.
Koehler once made noise when she pulled off a famous buzzband switch from Vivian Girls to Best Coast. In fact, she once feuded with HIPSTER RUNOFF for his 'cyberbullying-style coverage' of Best Coast [link]. However, Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino and her work mule Bobb Bruno have been recording a new album that will be directed towards She & Him-level mainstreamers who 'totally love indie.' It seems like they have either departed with Koehler because she did not fit the image of the band, or perhaps they didn't.
Ali Koehler could not be reached for comment.
Is Bethany Cosentino a ruthless buzzband leader who will stop at nothing to go mainstream, even if it means ditching ur buzzband members?
Is the axing of Ali Koehler leave another covered-up trail of blood on Bethany's rise to mindie fame?
Was Ali 'unfairly terminated'?
Why did Ali Koehler 'get axed'?
Should buzzband auxiliary members know that their job can be terminated at any point 4 any reason?
Does this new bro seem 'totally chill'?
Does his lamestream personal brand match the Best Coast band brand?
Is Best Coast about to have a MAJOR 2k12?
Former Vivian Girls drummer Ali Koehler has always been praised by HIPSTER RUNOFF blog for her career decision to tranfer to the Best Coast buzzband. Even thought Vivian Girls has seen tons of buzz on their most recent album cycle, she can probably make more personal profit margins touring in Best Coast, even if she doesn't have equity in the band. However, she took offense to a recent HIPSTER RUNOFF post that claimed Bethany Cosentino was canoodling with horrorcore rapper Tyler the Creator [link].
It turns out that the African American man in the picture is NOT Tyler the Creator. It is actually a different African American rapper. His name is 'The Wizard Khalifa.'
In the end, maybe Ali Koehler was right... but perhaps she has some bad blood with HIPSTER RUNOFF now that the Vivian Girls and Cults have 'stolen the buzz from Best Coast's 2k10 run...'
At the end of the day, this is just another edition of the long war between Best Coast and HIPSTER RUNOFF... but who will win in the end? Maybe every1 is a loser in this mudslinging battle.... 'Sigh...'
Picture of Carles and Ali before their falling out
Is HIPSTER RUNOFF the #1 journalistic integrituitous website on the internet?
Does HRO need a 'fact checking team'?
Is fact checking 4 lamestreamer news sources?
Is HIPSTER RUNOFF The #1 alt meme farm on the internet?
Does journalism require tons of 'risk taking' and 'going with the flow' of the meme cycle?
IS it hard 2 be a perfect content farm?
Is the internet 'reality' or 'surreality'?
Is Carles 'racist' via thinking that all black ppl are ___________ (famous black persons)?
R u STANDING by the original HIPSTER RUNOFF report? Who is this African American man? Sorta feel like it might be Travie McCoy now...
The Vivian Girls have some new MP3 out, but I haven't really listened to it, because as much as I 'h8 2 admit it', but Best Coast is probably the most listenable fuzzy buzzy female band in the world right now, and most of the other ones are 'too lofi' and don't have enough simple pop appeal. Anyways, Ali Koehler is the current drummer for Best Coast, but she left the Vivian Girls. In the new Vivian Girls Press Photo, u can't help but wonder what they are 'so sad abt.' If I had to make a guess, they are probably sad that they weren't the ones who enjoyed Best Coast, and Best Coast probably already achieved their maximum
Every time u see Ali Koehler drumming on stage during Letterman [link] or Fallon or opening for Weezer or meeting Justin Bieber, u can't help but wonder 'what if' she had stayed in the Vivian Girls? Would she have a fulfilling fuzzy buzzy band life?

Did Alie Koehler make the 'right decision?
Do u think she is 'laughing all the way 2 the buzz bank'?
Do u think she is 'still bros' with the Vivian Girls, or do they have an awkward resentment now?
Why was Best Coast more successful than the Vivian Girls when they had a head start on Bethany?
Do u think the Vivian Girls will ever be as mainstream as Best Coast?
Do the Vivian Girls look 'too Brooklyn core' 2 appeal 2 tweens?
Can we officially look back and say that Ali Koehler 'made the right decision'?
