V is for Vampire Weekend

I have to admit, the name Vampire Weekend enticed me as much as the first single played over the airwaves. Then I heard the tune “Oxford Comma”, which this fussy writer still embraces. That sealed the deal for my owning their self titled 2008 release.


I thought of the awesome band Audioslave when I concocted this mock title of Volume Junkies. Are you familiar with Audioslave? For some mysterious reason, I don’t own a single tune of theirs. Time to go shopping?

    3. I'm so glad to find a fellow fan, Kathleen! I'm such a stickler. I used to think I would have been a good grammar teacher but would never withstand today's trends. ~grin~ Be well.

  4. I am somewhat familiar with Audioslave. Vampire Weekend is a great band name. Not all the "interesting" ones are fake.

  6. I've heard of Audioslave but I don't think I'm familiar with their music. Vampire Weekend is a good one.

    1. Oh, thank you for your appreciation of Vampire Weekend and the kind word. I honestly am not terribly familiar with Audioslave's music outside a few singles played on the radio but think I should rectify that. Be well!

  7. I keep getting Vampire Weeknd confused with Hollywood Vampires. LOL.

    Volume Junkies sounds like a great band!
