Re: Flex and Wolter's Den of Nerdly Awesomeness

https://www.cbr.com/ben-reilly-spider-man-return-peter-parker-death/ Oh good gravy, Ben Reilly is a solid character who I'm glad was resurrected, but recycling a quarter-century-old idea that *lots* of people hated the first time is beyond dumb. I like Reilly, hate the Clone Saga. I stopped reading...

Re: A Bunch of Fives (New Challenge Thread)

KORY Crumb The Internet Glasser I'll put all these in the same bracket in that they do what they do well but it just isn't to my taste. I generally like structured songs with defined verse/chorus/middle 8. These just kind of meander with some nices sounds, but ultimately don't do it for me. 5/10 Py...

Re: Whatcha reading?

28) Long Halloween - Loeb and Sale. 1996. Comic. Unlike most of the acclaimed Batman Canon works I've read, this has a genuine maturity. Not the stubbled grimdark, 14 year old boys power fantasy of a Frank Miller, but a sensitivity and heart which grapples with the costs of trying to do good in a b...

Re: The Clash observations thread.

The fhte Cuts of CC, wmihp and gob turned two of my friends to clash-heads. Also, this is a Playlist i made for someone for a similar cause. https://open.spotify.com/playlist/1Rba71gvDXgHIIO9oa875G?si=opB8GGt3Twmw4fzoubGPbw&utm_source=copy-link&dl_branch=1 its more based in my preferences but omitt...

Re: What Are you Listening to Right Now?

These guys have been fascinating me for the last few weeks. Like a much noiser and abrasive version of Discipline-era King Crimson, they hector (Doc may like this) and jab at you. The live shows seem to have a never-ending flow as each song melts into the next and you find yourself lost in a surrea...

Re: The Clash observations thread.

You do have the advantage of precisely knowing your listener, so you already have a better sense of what works for her and what won't. So rely on that foreknowledge. 12 hour megamix of Fingerpoppin' it is! You are going to get destroyed in the divorce settlement. And we'll all know you deserved it....

Re: The Clash observations thread.

I thought about doing the three playlists idea of Punk/Pop/Deep Cuts, but I then I considered that it wouldn't be true to the band because they would have had it all jumbled together on the same album rather than separated. I kind of want to give the truest representation of them that I can. I also...

Re: The Clash observations thread.

How about your favorite 2-3 songs from each album ( except CTC of course ) to kind of show their progression from being a punk band to a whatever they needed up as band? Meaning it merits far more than 2–3 songs. I'd be hard pressed to choose only 2-3 songs per album myself, but for the sake of a v...

Re: The Clash observations thread.

I reckon a double album length of 90 mins with 25 songs or so. Pick mainly the most commercially immediate stuff and she can fill in the gaps later if the interest is there. I've converted loads this way over the years. I'm assuming you'd want to leave off Casbah and Should I stay due to excessive ...

Re: The Clash observations thread.

Maggie has asked me to make her a Clash playlist. She's familiar enough with them since I play them in the house a lot, but she wants my "vision" for what I would use to recommend them to people (and also so she can have something to listen to down in Tucson). I'm torn between doing a really concise...

Re: The Mighty Musical Observations Thread

I thought that was where BS and PH met IC. So it was the second one? According to Hooky, he was at the second gig, but they didn't really get to talking until the third visit by the Pistols at the Electric Circus. My life is a complete lie. Well, that part where I thought all that happened at the f...
