I Talk To The Wind is fucking celestial, man. Even I can pontificate about epiphanies to songs like that.

They were headed for a fall though, they finished 3rd last year with one of the worst points differentials in the competition. When they could no longer jag the close wins they were always fucked.

I'm scared about the Rabbitohs. They look kinda good now, even if it was just three ordinary teams they defeated.
Ahh, so that's how they were managing to do so well? God, it was weird to hear about them playing in the finals.

Have the Rabbitohs had any decent runs at all since their reinstatement?

I think King Crimson are a very overrated band but really good at the same time. They just lacked a certain magic othe prog bands then and today have. Maybe the word is personality?

Pretty Woman loses because of Richard Gere. He and Kevin Costner are arguably two of the worst leading men of the past 25-30 years. Bleh.

I loved the segue from "Talk to the Wind" to "No Rain," one of my favorite songs.

Oh god, that song is terrible. Moonchild is worse, but that's still just waffling prog drivel that makes the genre look bad.

In a little pink house? Cool.

1/6th of I'm Not There is going to suck for you.

They both remind me of Atom Heart Mother-era Pink Floyd. That's like saying "Grantchester Meadows" is a load of wank.

I think one of their main problems is that they're often a band better watched than heard.

And Fripp is easily one of the world's greatest guitarists, there's no denying that.

Costner has had his share of duds but he has had some magical performances.
