You know what? I don't listen to it very often. Small doses and all.

I changed it once or twice over the past few years, and it freaked people out.

I like Lucille. She's a keeper.

In my head you have two avatars simultaneously - your current one, and the ONOEZ one.

Oh it's good. I think it's cool that people have kept the same avatar for a while. I like my Bono in his pajamas or whatever the Hell he's wearing.

I fall somewhere in between "It's Pretty Good" and "It's Not That Good."

Do you not find it sonically and thematically out of step with everything else on there? I don't know why I'm the lone voice of reason here. It's like if Astral Weeks had a giant diarrhea fart in the middle of Madame George.

I thought of The Way Young Lovers Do as something of an equivalent to this for a long time, but I got over it. Perfect album.

As far as Ignoreland goes...I don't know, the verse melody? The wailing chorus riff? There are a few things in there that appeal to me. But yeah it's way out of step with the rest of an album that's long enough as it is. I wouldn't miss it if it weren't there. I just don't despise it anywhere near as much as you do.

They should have reworked it as an even heavier rocker for Monster.

How can a song that gives the finger to the Reagan/Bush era be cheesy? We're talking 12 straight years of bullshit. Michael was angry enough that he actually says "Fuck you, man!" Michael doesn't exactly curse much in his songs. Sure, the production might be a little spotty, but the spirit of the song makes up for it.

Yeah, I hate Republicans too. Did back in 92 as well.

It still doesn't belong on the album.

I've never actually gone through R.E.M.'s discography completely so I've got some weird holes in my knowledge of them. I haven't heard Document, Green, Monster or Reveal. My favorite is probably either Fables of the Reconstruction or Lifes Rich Pageant. The first four or five songs on both albums are absolutely perfect. New Adventures in Hi-fi comes close though. I also think Automatic is overrated as hell. It's so boring. Give me Out of Time over it any day of the week. I think I like Murmur but I had the same experience with it as Vlad I think, nothing stayed with me.

As for songs, Country Feedback and E-Bow the Letter are my two favorites. It's no coïncidence they're a bit similar. I also really love Blue. Wish they'd made more songs like that. The live version of E-Bow with Thom Yorke doing the Patti Smith vocals is amazing.

I agree, but the feeling is mutual.
