****head millennial wants to throw down with a guy who is twice his age + 6 years.

That being said - since Cruise was a wrestler in high school, and a pretty good one by all accounts, I reckon he’d kick Beiber’s ass in like 10 seconds. And even if he didn’t - you just beat up an old man.
Cruise looked pretty convincing in Jack Reacher, and in Mission Impossible 2, he actually landed his fly kick at the end accidentally. Like to see him fly kick Bieber.

They’ve been around for a while and have yet to grab my attention.

Make me think of a mix of the Violet Femmes, They Might Be Giants, and a fentanyl habit
Good comparisons.

He has a very distinctive voice (similar to the VF nasally signs), although they have varied their actual musical sound somewhat, especially over the last few records. Used to be super lo fi.

The frontman is such an interesting character, the podcast 'I only listen to the mountain goats' is worth a listen - regardless of whether or not you like their music.

I’m resigned to The Mountain Goats being this decade’s Sigur Ros, in that a bunch of different places I see people raving about them and on paper they would be a thing I like, but theyre just nothing to me.

Fair enough, they're not everyone's cup of tea.

Before I’d heard Sigur Ros’ music, I had incorrectly assumed by their name that they were an alternative metal type band.

The disconnect I experienced when I first heard them has resulted in me finding them unlistenable.

I had to Google them and assumed from the images that's what they were so didn't even bother with a cursory listen

Now I'll have to just to see what Avant-Rock is

They've been around since the mid 90s and relatively popular ish in indie circles for most of that time? Just commenting on "this decade"

Yes, hopefully. Job front is very lean at the moment.

We were planning on going to Salt Creek for a fishing trip but its fallen on the wayside.
