I'm not rich enough to pay extra to avoid rage. Especially when it's costing me extra vacation days to spend the extra day or two traveling.
Fair enough.

I'd imagine that rail at those costs would be a way to do it once or twice, but probably isn't feasible enough to be done regularly.

Totally. I might plan to do it in the future and just save up some extra dough for it.

Ax, I have the hardest time believing you like Split Enz or Crowded House, and I'm not trying to generalize your music tastes, it just seems, very unlike other things you seem to like a great deal

That's not very eco-friendly. Those limbs won't bio-degrade inside the plastic bag.

2. It's easier to find music from the last two decades? I'm sorry, but that's not a very good reason at all. Expose yourself to the decade more heavily and I think you may be pleasantly surprised.

3. I do not recall that conversation offhand.

The last line of your post is just stupid, and awfully hypocritical.
1. Well, I think it should be obvious that it IS a bloated album. Just read the tracklist. Certainly there's a skepticism that comes with any album that has a shitload of tracks.

2. Of course it is, when you're into prog, various metal subgenres, the Dunedin Sound, and post-rock, since they're recent developments and a lot of the talk in those circles barely reaches back earlier than the eighties. Most talk I encounter about 1960s bands is about stuff I already know and dislike. I haven't found a good starting point yet; my attempts to find more bands like The Shadows proved relatively fruitless beyond The Ventures. Maybe you could point one out instead of being a dick about it.

And it's true, given how condescending you are towards me in any music discussion, like my tastes and knowledge are inferior to yours.

Well, don't blame ME, blame the axe-murderer who picked me up from the side of the road!

I grew up on them. Plus, I think it fits in with stuff like U2.
