Pity the unpaid intern tasked with doing that job.
I think Wally was paid actually.

Well, I take it back. Congrats to our guy for snagging a *paid* intern gig.

I do fancy a kebab tonight, after six lager or so. Maybe I can convince the Mrs to let me have one.
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

I heard a Nillson song where he kept saying "Fuck you", what song was that?


There are a few familiar faces in that video, too — Ringo, Frampton, Klaus Voorman, Bobby Keys, etc.

You only have to sell 53 copies to hit number one these days.

My 2 cents on Coldplay, Rush Of Blood had some good tracks, less so Parachutes and X&Y but still the odd banger. The rest is pretty wank.

The Scientist is fantastic however and an all time favourite.

Earlier on the album, Bob and Doug brag about how they were getting ten bucks—"Each!"—for the album. When Geddy Lee shows up to sing on their single, "Take Off," he explains, "Hey, ten bucks is ten bucks." To Canadians of a certain age—like, 50–65 years old—that's been a go-to line about getting ripped off. It's also the sole redeeming part of Geddy Lee's public life.

Ok Im not sure I ever heard the whole thing. It got a fair amount of play on the radio in the US.
