That is pretty incredible.

Ah, right. I don't normally do Best Ofs. Lately I've been fleshing out my collection of REM albums - for some bizarre reason, I didn't have Life's Rich Pageant, and more understandably, I hadn't gotten around to most of their 1990s/2000s albums.
Green grass you're living the dream Axver, living the dream

I thought it was a nice way to get to know their early career, plus it was only 10 euro and it's 2 discs

Downloading their entire discography has got me hours of music for absolutely nothing.

(Well, actually, I own a physical copy of Automatic For The People, since it was given to me for Christmas a few years ago. Not that it was of much use, since I just ripped it to the computer and it's been gathering dust since.)

I'm more of a fan of CDs

And anyway my torrenting system is kinda busy right now with 37 GB of Sailor Moon Episodes...

Yeah, the last few shows have just been crazy. I hope it continues when they come back for the final U.S. dates.

At the same time, I'm left to wonder why the sudden increase in songs, and I sure hope it's not because they won't be touring again as a unit. With the death of Federici and one other member supposedly having some issues, it wouldn't surprise me.

I find CDs to be absolutely useless. I just rip them to my computer and file them away. What's the point of that? I mean, sure, MP3 audio isn't the same as CD quality, but I'm the biggest audiophile of anybody I know and I find it very hard to tell the difference even on high volume, so I'm not fussed.

Sailor Moon?!

I remember when Sailor Moon was on TV when I was about twelve. It was on after some show I liked - I can't actually remember the show in question, though it was probably something I'd now disown ever watching, like Pokemon. Anyway, Sailor Moon fucking disturbed me then and it'd probably disturb me now.

Sailor Moon kind of scared me when I was a kid.

Oh, and hi guys. I'm just having lunch, then I was going to do a bit of hiking in the hills.

Nobody should disown that. Not when Team Rocket was there.

... wow, I never noticed at the time, but "Team Rocket" is a really bad name.

I don't actually look at the main page of OOC except when starting a new Stuporthread.

And it feels like you've been on that Describe thread for ages. How many Stuporthreads have we gone through in the same time!
