Owl Crap

This is a bunch of lightweight, dare I say, "crap"? So why am I posting it?  Just because it was made by a nerd dropout in his parent's basement up the road in Owatonna, Minnesota.  Owatonna is 33 miles away, but keep in mind, there is nothing between here and Owatonna worth noting except the Hope Creamery, so it's kind of local.  23 year old Adam Young, a.k.a. Owl City, has sold a shitload of his LP, Ocean City. Fireflies hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was the most downloaded song on iTunes.  I still think it's crap, but more power to the kid. He's still young, maybe someday he'll find Robert Johnson and be reborn in a more perfect form.
