Noise, impressive!

I can't believe how tight the band is. It must be a blast to play with them.

Shallow Grave was my favorite ... ditto what Bluechair said.

I would still argue whether Rope's motives in posting the two posts I read were to attack you, Noise. I did read his posts carefully, and even the looney business seemed intended to point up the fact that a person or group confronted with a claimant to know God, from outside that person, is going to...

Inane? This whole board is inane. I thought that was the appeal of it.

The obvious, fairer response would be, if you think a thread is inane or annoying, don't read it, and don't post to it. It's pretty simple. They die their own deaths.

A protest

BlueChair et al, This message, in tandem with the apparent deletion of the Wacko Jacko/God thread in the Annex, pisses me off. I would argue vehemently that Rope's response/s to Noise's assertion to know God were very far from the attack that Noise took it as, and I would propose amending your post ...

Re: Bush knew

My latest paranoia on W has to do with the upcoming elections. If he falls behind in the polls, watch the skys for raining death. Mine too. I.e., watch for a plausible warrant for declaring martial law and suspending the election. Because it's obvious that things are already beginning to trend away...

Bluechair, I noticed that too. Charlie asks Donald to help with the script, and the next thing they do is start spying on Meryl Streep's office, and it goes from there. I think that's the whole "meta" aspect of the screenplay/film. Pretty clever. I saw Adaptation twice in two weeks. I also agree tha...

Solomon Burke - Don't Give Up on Me
Los Lobos - Good Morning Aztlan
EC - Brutal Youth re-release - kinda disappointed in the bonus disk though. I do like the chorus of Life Shrinks.

Duly noted on Tacuba, Noise. As soon as I can.

Okay that wasn't the pic I intended to send to Spooky, but yeah, those are tiny Dutch shoes. Refrigerator magnets, to be exact.

ABBA - Greatest Hits

I bought no singles to speak of, but one time my friend Jeff and I went to the local AM station and asked for any singles they might want to get rid of. I got the theme from the Pink Panther, and something called "Actions Speak Louder than Words" by Chocolate Milk.

My musical education, thanks to a fairly whacked-out religious upbringing, is full of holes.

Somehow ABBA slipped through, but that's abou...

According to the press release, it's Peter Erskine.

I don't know if I'd go so far as to say that WIWC was an intellectual exercise in rock and roll, but this new one sounds like it has a much more focussed, specific reason for being, and that will bode well for the music, no matter the style.
