Someone scribbled, in the white space of a poster advertising the upcoming
Thee Oh Sees/Sic Alps/Wimps "miss my mom, dad, sis, brother." What would inspire a person to write such a sad and personal note on a rock poster? Was it simply seeing the word "WIMP" that made the person feel weak and/or vulnerable? Did the scribbler want others to know about his/her pain... or was it a drunken moment of self-realization? We will probably never know. I do want to tell the scribbler to listen to Wimps. Sometimes music is the best medicine.
