You are concerned one the icicles will fall and the wind may blow it through the window onto the sleepy lady. I know I thought exactly the same thing. That Santa does look too heavy.

Bernie can be accused of a lot of things but he certainly got The Clash out of the crippling, self-induced mess they were in in late 1980 and pulled off one publicity stunt after another to keep their visibility high. No one has ever said the Combat Rock tour was mismanaged or any of the other tours. We know now that the palace coup was just Joe's typical backstabbing, a technique he began in the 101ers, perfected in the Clash and practiced up until his very last days in the Mescaleros. Bernie certainly exploited the situation, but all things being equal I'm sure he'd rather the Clash were making hits with the Strummer/Jones team (though I'm sure he'd rather that team make rock and roll records, not Atom Tan music). He thought with excellent, well-argued reasons that Topper was a terminal liability for a band that wanted to be an international touring outfit, especially after the drama on the Asia tour and all the more so given Topper's erratic musicianship.

Bernie is just Dirty Harry's maxim about a man not knowing his limitations in action. He wants to be recognized as a creator and his creativity was on the other side of the curtain.

Like McLaren it was mis-management. Were the band better with or without Bernie? They appeared to need Bernies chaos and so he returned. Maybe they needed him more than they all were prepared to admit. Still that final album. :disshame:

I need a ruling on this: Canada's Comedy Channel always runs ads in December for Jeff Dunham shows. This counts as part of the War on Christmas, right?

War on Civilization in general.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

0% on Rotten Tomatoes and $2.8M take at the box office. C'mon, you holier-than-thou Christians. Stand up and support one of your own or admit you've lost the war and start boning up on your sharia law.
