I'm pretty sure I'd like Kurt Vile if I was a little less grizzled. But, man: dorky, lame. Also-- 21 Pilots: dorky, lame.
Kids today couldn't make music if they graduated Julliard at age 6.

The older I get the harder it's become to judge other people's age. And I get really depressed when some ancient looking dude turns out to be younger than me. #-o

I would have a lot of problems with those people...
For what it's worth, they're great people.

Once my beard became a Santa beard, I became the ancient looking dude that turns out to be younger than people think.

A large percentage of the guys that work for me consider Episode III: Revenge of the Sith to be the best Star Wars movie.

I work with a mid 50s guy who appears a fair bit younger than his age. But he is so age insecure that whenever we run across someone his age that looks much older he likes to point it out. Then i point out that the person has liver disease or is homeless or whatever.
