Les Sales says “we hate capitalism. We love shopping.” So true dudes. So true. I’d be all for getting rid of capitalism completely if 80s American-throw-back school PSA-type videos hadn’t convinced me I’d end up being dressed in corduroy overalls living in the back of a Karakalpakstani rubber boot factory for the rest of my rapidly decreasing years.

So compared to that, or at least compared to the fear of that, I’ll be okay with watching other people buy 7,000 won lattes after spending 6,000 won on a plate of 제육 for now. Or maybe going to a Les Sales show. Dudes, when are you playing again? It’s been forever and shit. Like, seriously, 6 months or so. Reach out.

I don’t know that Les Sales actually sings about capitalism. I mean there are really only two songs I know the name of, one is called “I’m telling you I love everyone” or “I mean I love everyone” or something like that, and the other is called Star Wars. I guess Star Wars does have some sort of economic themes. I mean the Empire was all about gathering resources and building these floating increasingly-gigantic-yet-increasingly-easy-to-destoy orbs of metal and crap.

Like three times is enough dude. You done got blowed up three times. Let it go. Let it go. I’m a horrible role female role model. Let it go~~~

Come to think of it, I really don’t think anyone got paid for their work. I mean the Viceroy got paid with a beating, but maybe that’s not a good representation the true spirit of capitalism? Maybe I should ask my nearest libertarian. They totally seem to have a completely solid grasp of human nature and the societal actions on a global scale while also having an excellent chance of winning the sweepstakes in November.

Maybe they were talking about the other Star Wars. Hmm.

But yeah, Star Wars. That song really gets a crowd moving. Not as much as the time that frat house next to my old apartment played Jump Around by House of Pain and cracked their foundations, but close.  Here’s a video of a different song though. I’m always too busy shakin’ it to film.

So, that’s Les Sales. I hope you learned something. I sure did. Here’s a dude who was playing in the show that night, but I don’t remember his name because he’s not in the band anymore and all I can remember is the fact that he said he would hit me for some reason but he might have been joking. I think he was joking.

I can’t be expected to remember everything. Come now.

Oh, here’s an actual video of Star Wars, from back in the day when they had a different singer. Just dance.
