MEANWHILE, EARLIER TODAY AT THE IDOLATOR OFFICES:

Maura: Oh my god, this Jimmy Eat World cover.
Maura: VAGINA.
Jess: What?
Maura: It should be in your inbox.
Jess: Zounds.
Jess: THE EYE OF SAURON.
Maura: Uh, dude, it’s a vag.
Maura: Anyway, is the indie rock poll ready?
Jess: Dude, what do you think everyone thought the Eye of Sauron really was?
Maura: I don’t know!
Jess: Anyway yes, I told you about that.
Jess: About the indie post, I mean. Not about J.R.R. Tolkien’s penchant for vagina imagery.
Maura: Oh, okay, sorry. I missed it because my eyes went loco after looking at that giant feathered vagina metaphor.

LATER:

Jess: The Jimmy Eat World thing is ready.
Maura: Oh no, my lack of Tolkien knowledge has been outed.
Maura: EVERYONE WILL KNOW HOW I FELL ASLEEP AT THE LORD OF THE RINGS MOVIE.

    The Peacock Antidefamation League is protesting this post.

  2. the rich girls are weeping

    I was so depressed, and then I read this post. I felt instantly better. THX IDOL-ATER!

  3. Ned Raggett

    Roffles galore.

    Wow, Maura, you’re the Elaine Benes of Peter Jackson worship, and LOTR is your English Patient.

    Oh yeah, and the JEW album cover is totally a vag.

    The Eye of Sauron is a vagina? If only my vagina could find lost jewelry!

  6. SomeSound-MostlyFury

    Eye of Sauron!? If someone had told me that the female vagina is actually a large optic enhancer/long distance telecommunications device, methinks I would have had more success with the ladies up to now.

    Can I nominate this comment section for all-time-best status already?

    Didn’t XTC already do this with Apple Venus Vol. 1? And at least they had the decency to turn their vagina sideways, and make it less up-close.

    Finally, they’ve matched vag-tastic imagaery with vag-tastic music. Kudos.

    Melek Taus would be proud. Check the Wiki, everbodeh.

  11. OingoBobo

    @Ned Raggett: I second that.

  12. Josh Mock

    I must be pure of heart, mind and soul. All I saw was a peacock feather.

    1. I only saw a feather as well
    2. I think the Bluetones had a feather on their first album. Please don’t consider that me outing myself as a Bluetones fan. Just Blue-curious back in 1997, if anything.
    3. I fell asleep 20 minutes into Lord of the Rings and woke up two hours later thinking I had weathered the storm. Nope, still lightning and battles and horses and shit. But later found out my boyfriend had also copped a few winks during the “dialog and shit”

    I’ve seen worse.

    I realize that this post is old news by now, but I just wanted to invite everyone to Artie’s Irish Pub on Saturday night, where my band, Giant Feathered Vagina Metaphor, will be playing from 9:15 – 9:23. Don’t be late!
