My August 8 post about the Josephine Collective’s reaction – well, at least one member’s MySpace-aired disgruntlement – to not winning an opening slot at the 96.5 the Buzz Beach Ball 3 concert has generated a shitstorm of comments. All of the name-calling, scene-bashing and misspelled-opinion-spewing that occurred both in Josephine’s defense and at its expense inspired one reader (who asked to be identified as Aaron August) to parody the Johnson County band in comic strip form.
"Tale of a True Rock ‘n’ Roll Band," which I received via MySpace mail yesterday, contains a few misspellings and grammatical errors of its own, as well as a few below-the-belt stabs at individual members of the band. (The Brokeback Mountain potshot taken at bass player and nice guy Colby Michael Logback is especially low.) But there’s a bit of genuine humor in there, too. Maybe Josephine singer Dillon Teague Devoe will see that, if he's able to stop taking himself so seriously for about 30 seconds. -- Crystal K. Wiebe
