i upgraded for about a night, it sucked on my setup

plns 11/09/12 10:04 AM

It feels like this band gets pushed so damn hard by their label but haven't seen much success. I feel like they've been stuck in the same spot for 3-4 years.

Jeff_Ryan 11/09/12 10:06 AM

I have a Mac so I can't haha but I was at the Verizon store last night and while I was waiting I was playing around with Windows 8 a little and it was pretty cool. It's a hugeee difference so it could be kind of a messy transition for people who aren't great at adapting to new technology, but it's a cool OS

SILYW 11/09/12 10:08 AM

These guys deserve to blow up, Threads is in my contenders for AOTY. I also had the pleasure of meeting them while they were on tour with Motion City Soundtrack in the UK.

irthesteve 11/09/12 10:09 AM

I am so close to upgrading, I just havent pulled the trigger yet

wall e 11/09/12 10:13 AM

Just saw them in a basement a few days ago.

Gae 11/09/12 10:31 AM

I tried it for a bit at Staples. Other than that new homepage/widget thing I didn't see a huge difference, they're just a bunch of shortcuts. As soon as you hit esc or click on the desktop icon you go back to the same old windows

Manufactured Dreams 11/09/12 10:33 AM

Waiting for them to get a few key features before I do. Looks cool though.

If it has an intel chipset yiu can use windows on it i believe. But its an apple, so why would you haha

noozi 11/09/12 10:45 AM

I had been running the beta on my desktop all summer but I can't live with it - went back to Windows 7

Oh yeah I wasn't suggesting that I would want to install it on my MacBook, but I have a Dell for work and I don't think I'd mind if we upgraded to 8 for that

anamericangod 11/09/12 10:52 AM

Dreadful interface for desktop users.

lol most people haven't even heard of this band until this year.

pleasedontask 11/09/12 10:52 AM

best song on Threads.

seanwaits 11/09/12 10:55 AM

Things have really started to pick up for them, so happy!

SomedayTheFire 11/09/12 11:21 AM

It's the exact same as 7 bar the start screen

CTRL+ALT+DANCE 11/09/12 11:38 AM

I have a Hackintosh and i put Win8 on it and I don't like it at all. Went back to Win 7.
They tried too hard to make it simple that they just made it more complex. Neat idea though, just wasn't for me.

MrDelux 11/09/12 11:38 AM

I'm ashamed that I am just now hearing of them. They sound awesome

The Minn 11/09/12 11:45 AM

I'm a PC gamer so vote NO on 8!

fakeyellowlight 11/09/12 11:47 AM

They are on Jimmy Fallon, now this- yet they are playing first out of 4 bands tonight with Motion City Soundtrack. I don't like going into the venue that early...so I'll miss them.

kaylasananjou 11/09/12 12:10 PM

So happy to see things finally picking up for these guys. "Threads" is an AMAZING album, and they deserve all the recognition they can get.

Penguin 11/09/12 12:23 PM

Love, love, love this band. They're great musicians and really nice people.

spiffa0 11/09/12 12:59 PM

In my opinion, Windows 8 is an absolute disaster.

Same, hoping Valve's push for more linux gaming will start to pick up more steam (pun!).

OT I had no idea Now, Now has been around so long. First heard of them when they released their most recent album.

Definitely, I really wish they made it longer though.

jenovaproject 11/09/12 01:21 PM

I guess I'm never seeing them at a small venue again..... :stars:

They deserve it though.

d00d81that 11/09/12 02:12 PM

yayyy

Amongster 11/09/12 02:54 PM

This has been airing for weeks and it's news today?

kazuma_ootaro28 11/09/12 03:51 PM

Haven't even seen it before. But good to know they're going places!

Trevor Sostarich 11/09/12 03:54 PM

I upgrade on my PC and I honestly can't tell a difference besides the start widget. I don't really use my PC so I'll leave it on there. It's an interesting concept, but I think it'll only work to it's full potential on something that's touch screen.

trevorshmevor 11/09/12 06:25 PM

Woohoo! Good for them. The songs they performed on Fallon sounded great as well. This band deserves any and all success coming their way.

Clark 11/09/12 06:37 PM

You misspelled "downgrade."

JWillTrick 11/09/12 06:37 PM

Nice placement. I'll have to check them out!

Krs-One 11/09/12 07:19 PM

I used XP until windows 7 came out. Now I'll probably use 7 until windows 10 or 11

sargentlgfuad 11/09/12 09:18 PM

Love. Just saw them tonight. Can't wish enough good things for their future.

eriatarka24 11/09/12 09:20 PM

I wonder how many people who have heavily used Windows 8 are making these comments. Lol

It's honestly not as different as people are making it out to be.

Check out Wolf and School Friends. Great songs. Actually all of the songs on Threads are great.

I completely agree with this. I NEVER like female vocalists, but for whatever reason, this album really hits home for me, & I have no trouble listening to the whole thing on repeat. I love the direction that they've taken since Now Now Every Children

Jerold Sunga 11/10/12 05:24 AM

Such a cool song. I upgraded my OS, it has a better design than 7, but I'm having a hard time using the UI, though.

Over the course of the last year, they've changed labels, toured with Motion City Soundtrack, toured with Fun., been in a TV commercial, and played Fallon. Hardly the same spot.

I met Jess Abbott back in like the winter of 2008 in Maine when we both lived there. I played a show with her old band Volante, I actually still have the EP that she gave me, it's pretty good. If anyone would like a listen, let me know!

I would love to hear the EP!

cswappo 11/10/12 07:57 PM

great band! i hope this gives them some more good exposure. windows sucks but now now does not.

CavanaughPark 11/10/12 09:52 PM

these guys are growing a lot this year.....maybe it was their tour with Fun. either way i like that they're becoming more successful.

airik625 11/11/12 11:44 AM

I just installed Windows 8 on my computer. I partitioned it so I still have Windows 7 also. Gotta say, I love Windows 8. At first, I was worried the learning curve would be too steep, but it's not in the slightest. Very impressed with it so far.
