Example (I absolutely love this song, by the way):
YouTube - Talk Talk - I believe in you
This is eerie, but I told bono_212 the same thing the night we heard it together, and even used the same Talk Talk song as an example. So yeah, I can hear that.

Spirit of Eden btw

You know how my stance changed after the Romance is Boring deal. Not saying I don't still download, but I have cooled off considerably and don't do it before the release date.

I was referring to you saying you would listen after work, mocking the very idea that you had a legitimate job that didn't involve you being a borderline retarded cowboy.

Oh. Yeah I'm doing grunt work at a nonprofit downtown for a couple months, which will segue into a paid position with some city agency in April or May. Recent development.

That's awesome, man. Seriously. Very cool. I'm out of work, at the moment, which is nice for listening to tunes all day, but bad for somebody who, you know, buys 20 records every week. Take no prisoners. You'll be running the joint in no time.

Appreciate that very much. I'm well aware how the being out of work feels. Even though I'm not getting paid, it still feels good to actually have to be somewhere and complete some task.

Unlike you, I weaned myself off my ridiculous LP buying habit. It was a crucial step in my not being destitute.

Hey, at least I can always sell some of this shit, right? Somebody out there is going to be dying for a Bundle of Fags 7" or that OOP Twin Stumps LP, at some point. You can always count on Thee Oh Sees, too, on that front. Ebay, here I comes!

that is one painful voice.

I know I was in the minority here, but I was never able to warm myself to Rook. Just didn't care for it. But I'm loving what I hear on this one.

Good stuff. Best of luck.

Hopefully they don't realize you're a hipster thief.

I stopped going out to eat this semester, and somehow have ended spending significantly more money. Fuck paying your own way through.

My copy is sitting on my porch right now as I'm at work. I actually came to work late today, because typically UPS delivers a few minutes before I leave, or a few minutes after. I left freaking 30 minutes late, and it still hadn't delivered. Just checked the tracking, and it arrived 6 minutes after I left. Curse you, UPS delivery man! CURSE YOU!!!!!!!

Very much enjoyed the first listen. Hopefully I can give it a couple more spins this evening.

Do you like it more, as much as, or less than Rook on first listen, Imps?
