I've always loved Trust. It reminds me of my college years. I think the songwriting is great and lyrically it's pretty sarcastic and sometimes vicious. Also, I think it is probably the quintessential Attractions album. The only thing I really don't like about the record is the instrumental bridge in...

Poppet, too bad about Scotland. Anyway, pip 52 is expressing interest in the room also. pip won't know for a week though. Any arrangements that people are comfortable with is fine with me as far as the room goes. As I said, it's a suite. But at some point we all might want to discuss the matter by p...

Less Than Zero - Printers Row is in the West Loop. It's roughly a couple of miles from the lake, so it is a couple of miles from the show. It's fine over there. Chicago is real easy to get around in. The problem is, I don't know exactly which Hyatt you are talking about. I couldn't recall one in Pri...

Poppet, that room I have reserved at the Red Roof is a suite, with a king size bed and a sleeper couch. So far it's empty. I' will chip in for the room just so as to cut costs for everybody, but I've got a nice comfy bed right down the street that I'll be sleeping in. But you might want to consider;...

OK - I just booked a Suite at the Red Roof for $149 a night plus tax. At best, a couple of different folks can stay there and we can maybe have a little pre-show get together Saturday night. At worst, nobody shows up, and I eat the $149 bucks myself, and sit and watch hotel porn by myself all night,...

I checked the websites for Fairfield and Red Roof. Unfortunately it looks like Fairfield is booked, but I was able to find a room at Red Roof at $109 a night for that night. Anybody who wants a room, I would jump on this REALLY quick because this is right on the Magnificent mile and I'm sure these a...

Those Fairfields and Red Roof's sound like the best idea so far. I will check those out today. They should be clean and relatively cheap, although on Michigan Ave they might be a little pricier. I promise to get back to everybody later today with solid info.

We can see if somehow we can hold a place in line for the late comers, subduedly of course. We'll figure all the details out as time passes.

All The Rage - Easily the best of the lot (IMHO) Tramp The Dirt Down - I agree that it's beautiful and all, but a bit too overtly political. A song that I think dates itself as time passes. You Bowed Down - I'd call it filler. Invasion Hit Parade. I agree, waaay overwrought. And one of the few EC co...
