"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Interesting.

I'm pleasantly surprised, since all the talk is about the medley.
First half (tracks 1 through 6): A-
Second half (tracks 7 through 17): A+++++++++++++++

The transitioning is incredible. It's like the best DI playlist you've ever heard.

I'm gonna see it tomorrow

Sometime this week

Eventually, I swear. It's just..hard. I wanted the movie to come out so bad, then Don died, and I never wanted to see anyone be him after that. Even if it's Steve Carrell, who, would be my second choice to have played Max after Dana Carvey (Early 90s, not...more Recent Dana). I'm scared to see it now because I'll probably cry. I know that's ridiculous, but we're talking about my favorite thing ever, film, music, or television

I didn't mind the length of I Want You, either.

I think my thoughts are well summarised here: A band for the ages: The Shadows – Axver’s Journal – Users at Last.fm
Like Cori said thanks for the info.

I think you'd agree that sometimes the artists that get the least credit often have the biggest impact.

I said you listen to them. You still do, even if it's two songs. I never said you were a huge fan. Good Lord, Ax. You're no better than Screwy in some of these debates. Chill.

Of course, you're kind of debating with one brain hemisphere behind your back if your argument is that McCartney has a horrible voice.

Wow. I don't think I've ever known anyone to be so enamored of Get Smart! Now I see why you wanted to get all stabbity with me.

I swear, all I said was I never saw it! I just had never lumped it in with those other old shows because I was so unfamiliar with it.

So far, Here Comes the Sun and Something. The former is like the anti-Fix You. Whereas Fix You is impossible to like, Here Comes the Sun is impossible to dislike.
