THE OVAL OFFICE, OCTOBER 28th, 1972: NIXON: So who is Andrew Stout? HALDEMAN: He's... Oh, Christ, he's... God, he's... NIXON: He's terrible? HALDEMAN: He's impossible…
Thinking about you, too.
That's awesome. Recently, after I lost my cell phone, I started practicing the sly Temptations-esque hand moves featured in the video for "I Can't Go For That." I've found it keeps the perps at bay during my nightly strolls on the waterfront.
Man, I'm glad I put that extra effort into learning how to feel comfortable around girls when I was still pubescent. This is perhaps the saddest piece of video I've seen in some time.
Oh, and it seems to me Smirk's tone falls closer to bemusement than outrage. But because I know her, I can vividly imagine how she'd relay this story in person, outside of trivia night. But chin up, Graham. That's just more moral outrage to share among the Chastity Crusader and yourself.
Make that three idiots, Alison. Neither myself nor Laura Lee were aware that was a live orchestra. It didn't seem that way at all—even from the third row.
Great review, Alison. I can see the main difference in our opinion stems from the first act, which seemed more robust to me than you describe (despite the excessive amount of plot-redundant showtunin', I admit).
You nailed it, Ezra. Especially this bit: "all comfort is stripped away when directions are changed, vintage keyboards buzz, and you tumble down a psych-pop rabbit hole." That feeling is exactly why I keep returning to the album.
I'm sorry but I don't quite understand what you are saying. You need to see a more recent picture of Eugene to know whether or not the band is worthwhile—is that what you're saying? Please ask again without the attempted erudition, and I'll do my best to comply.
If you're referring to my Green Day post from Sunday, then I need to stress my problem with them isn't that they're unoriginal but that they're muddle-headed wanna-be protest singers. So your Liechtenstein comparison doesn't really work.
But if you want me to defend Liechtenstein's own originality, I can't do that either. I like them because they remind me of several other bands I like, but they have slightly more complex background vocals. Not groundbreaking, I agree. But they're also not getting 1000-word features in the Sunday Times. So I figured I'd toss them 60 words at End Hits. Apologies you didn't like the song.
