Sometimes I wish more "new" threads were made, and everything wasn't thrown into overarching threads or the random section. Not a big deal either way, or even directly related. I like to mention things.

Too many people would bitch about their titles.

I always do that with new bands, I start an album-centric thread, thinking I'll just start a new thread when they put out a new album, but then I never do and then the thread has a stupid, old, outdated title.

I think you just answered your own question.

I really, truly could not care less whether a handful of words I spend seconds a day reading are humorous or not.

A joke in a thread title (as with most jokes) is seldom funny more than a few times. Weeks on, they're all forum wallpaper at best.

Hey, me too! I picked up the deluxe reissues of Murmur and Reckoning a while ago - the live shows on those two are fantastic. And the Reckoning one is at Chicago's own Aragon Ballroom.

I've heard there's a stellar dentist chair version of that song.

Been listening to 2001's Reveal over the last couple of days. It is not such a bad album actually. For R.E.M. standards it sucks, yes. But there are some really gorgeous songs here like Beat A Drum and Summer Turns To High. Sure, there are also bores like She Just Wants To Be and Saturn Return. It is very uneven. But I would go so far as to say that something like Beat A Drum or even Imitation of Life is more summery and beautiful than anything from U2's album around the same time.
