If there was a verbal Olypmics, the US would have as many medals as Liechtenstein.

I'm a total moron, I don't overthink music, trust me. I wanted to like it, bought it, put it on, gave it back to back listens with headphones while out on the balcony, and, it just didn't do it for me. Maybe I'll try one more time.....

Same here. I can remember various aspects of the Spanish I took in school-a few words here and there and whatnot, but I'll be damned if I can create a proper sentence and be fluent in the language. I'd like to go back and study it again, actually. Maybe someday.

Were you sipping a fine Merlot out on that balcony?

Fucking hell, Japandroids is music to take PCP to. Next time, go punch a grizzly or something. Damn.

I'm sorry I listened to music wrong.

I have been telling myself that I'll go back and study it again for years now. I never do it. I hope you do.

I'm upset that since I moved away from Montreal, my French and Italian language skills have actually diminished because of lack of use. That became especially apparent on my visit last week.

If I had more time, I would work to rectify it. I may just resort to just watching more French and Italian television.

I hope so, too. At this point I'm not sure if I'm going to continue the proper college thing, but it would be fun to take the occasional class in things here and there.

I hope you can get an opportunity someday down the line as well.

I was bad at Spanish when I took it for five years. Now I know about 13 words.

I didn't know the first part, may have been able to guess the second part, and agree with the third part, now that I know the first part.

It's when native speakers use apostrophes to indicate plurals that makes me want to explode.


A joke, which you've heard before:

You call someone who speaks three languages trilingual.
Someone who speaks two, bilingual.
What do you call someone who speaks one language?

 
An American.

In all seriousness, while it disappoints me that a ton of people don't get anything out of Japandroids, the critics foaming at the mouth over them, trying to make sense of music that is pure adrenaline made me laugh. You either dig it or you don't, and a lot of whether or not you do depends on context. Their albums are repetitive and one-note if I dedicate my full attention to them. Put them on at the gym or something and it's an entirely different story. And they are tremendous live.

Like I said previously, it's the singing I can't get past. I'm kind of a hard-ass where singing is concerned.

I hear you. I wasn't bashing them, more wishing I liked them more, since I'm always on a quest for music that raises my adrenalin levels a bit. I think I first started talking to mofo due to my quest to find such music......

The new Two Door Cinema Club album is just OK. It sounds good, the production is slick and professional (perhaps too much so) and their rhythm section is still strong, but every song sounds the same. They try for a math rock thing, but their arrangements aren't very creative.

I liked the last album though; diminishing returns and all that.
