MANCHESTER ORCHESTRA COPE: A TUMBLR IRL
On Thursday, April 3, 2014, fans drove from as far as Alabama to take part in a unique experience with one of their favorite bands.
The front walls were dressed with lyrics from the album and the drawings of keyboardist, Chris Freeman. Further inside was a more dynamic curation.
Attendees entered their feelings into tablets stationed around the room. Their moods triggered visuals from the Tumblr community and what they wrote was projected alongside. The art filled the walls and ceiling around the stage area, encompassing the crowd of 200 as they watched the band perform a stripped-down set.
Two songs into the set, lead singer Andy Hull asked the audience to sit on the floor so they could all see the band and the art that they generated together. For a band that is used to playing big stages with bigger sounds, this was a special night that they and those in attendance will always remember.
To top it all off, each fan got to go home with a piece of the wall.
Big thanks to manchesterorchestraband for their imagination and music, lightningfreeman for his illustrations, gingergroupdesigns for creating the installation, to The Uprising Creative for their technological prowess, Loma Vista Recordings, Vector Management, the kind folks at the L1 Gallery for their hospitality, and of course, the amazing fans who came with an array of emotions, but left in all smiles.

The new album, COPE, is available here.
The Colbert Report twitter account recently tweeted this quote from his show, and now twitter is freaking out about it.
Out of context it might seem bad, but if you watched the entire story, you’d know that he was mocking the Washington Redskins’ president for introducing the “Washington Redskins Original Americans Foundation”
He showed himself doing a character named “Ching-Chong Ding-Dong,” which was so ridiculously offensive that you would laugh at it and realize how crazy the racism is.
But since The Colbert Report twitter account posted it, there has been a trending tag of #cancelcolbert and people are just complaining that Colbert is racist and that Comedy Central needs to cancel the show.
It’s like these people don’t realize that it’s all satire and he’s purposely being racist to show you how ridiculous the real life race issues are.
If you don’t find the joke funny(and perhaps you find it offensive), then you just simply don’t enjoy that kind of humor and it’s not for you. You don’t have to watch the show. You don’t have to follow the show’s twitter account. It’s a joke. Get over it. Colbert obviously respects the Asian community and doesn’t mean to upset his viewers or anybody else. If that’s not your kind of comedy then just ignore it and don’t watch the show.
