On Monday, the hipsternet had an orgasm over the announcement of a Neutral Milk Hotel reunion. Today, the rest of the world goes: "meh." Because there are only two kinds of people in the world . . .
Well, actually, there's a few more kinds of people than that.
1. There are the people who are just confused about what could be so neutral about milk hotels.

2. Then there are people who know who what a Neutral Milk Hotel is, but just . . . don't . . . care . . .

No, I don't care if Neutral Milk Hotel is reuniting....pretty OK with that.— Garry Juhans (@GJuhans) April 29, 2013
3. There are people like my friend, former Phoenix music editor and Vanyaland boss Michael Marotta, who are pretty sure they are the only people in the world who don't care about Neutral Milk Hotel:
I think I'm the only person who doesn't really care that Neutral Milk Hotel is performing again.— Meg (@xxMegOxx) April 29, 2013
4. And there are people who are mad at the Neutral Milk Hotel reunion because it is not a reunion by their favorite band:
