I haven't ever tried squash, although I like it's orangey colour. What's it taste like?

Ah, right. Yeah, I love Drive. It's in my top five REM songs. Unlike GAF, though, I think Automatic is a bit of an over-rated album and definitely not REM's best. That title has to go to Fables Of The Reconstruction in my opinion.

Yeah, but you hate Achtung Baby, so you're just plain weird.

Now, are you weird like me and find that atmospheric metal such as Agalloch is always good for times like these and makes you feel better? I always crank In The Shadow Of Our Pale Companion and it picks me right up.

Maybe if I end up in a super REM mood after this is over, I'll give it a listen. I have to go back to work tomorrow, so I plan on going to bed a little earlier tonight.

Try Not To Breath was also really good, but it took a minute.

I'm not so...into The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonight though.


I'm kinda embarrassed though, my favorite REM song is probably Imitation of Life, and it doesn't even seem like a lot of people KNOW that song

Squash the vegetable? We get about 3 different colours here, I think, yellow the most common, and they're a relative of the zucchini. I think. They're velly yum. But I love all veges except brussel farts - which I despise with enthusiasm.

Australia and New Zealand for the SuperWin. We do things lazily right lazily!

That reminds me, I rented Achtung Baby and Zooropa too, to get those files back. Not only did I get to see the cover art and such of Zooropa for the first time (well, I guess I did look through it while I was at your house, but still), I got to see the disc for Achtung Baby again, and I got all choked up, because everything about Achtung reminds me of Junior High School, pretty much the best year of my life.

I'd say the better half of Automatic is the second half. It's got quality songs like Ignoreland, Man On The Moon, and Find The River.

Imitation Of Life was a big single here, though if I remember correctly, it fell rather flat on the charts over your way.

Yes, I was cranking metal today when I was doing housework.. though I had to stop because I had a headache.

Blasted tropical storms and their atmospheric pressure!

Dive in headfirst and get stuck into Monster. It's largely considered REMs worst/most misunderstood, so you've got a good chance of loving it. I love it.

Man On The Moon is another of my favorites, possibly because Man On The Moon is one of my favorite movies <_<

Imitation of Life came out when I was really into music videos, and by far, that was one of the coolest videos out there at the time, aided by what I think is a FANTASTIC song.
