I just destroyed the game "Simon" in our Interference arcade.

Alright, any album recommendations? I've got Led Zeppelin IV and Rubber Soul, so far today.

That's worrying.

Ahh, right. I'm not sure how I feel about that kind of rock pomposity. Sure, it can engage a very large audience, but personally ... I don't know. That said, I also hate it when people overtly try to "connect" and all that bollocks too, like when Bono forces it with One speeches and pulling a girl up to dance every fucking show at the same moment in WOWY. There's a fine line. I liked seeing EITS and PT because they both seemed to not be too concerned one way or another and were focused on their music without being self-absorbed.
Yeah, you're not the only one surprised with that! But I'm kind of glad it's up for one more season, at least. I'm not sure if AI is replacing BB's slot for now. Ten is a shite channel though, so whatever they put in is most likely going to be rubbish.

The thing is, you take away the rock pomposity from Jagger and there isn't much left. Bands like PT and EITS were never about that sort of thing. They're not expected to prance around acting camp and making faces that would look ridiculous even compared to Polynesian tribal masks. It's not that, without use of a better term, traditional rockstars aren't expected to play music either. Of course they are. But for a lot of them, being just plain entertaining is a huge factor, it goes back to the first performers in popular music. Might sound funny coming from a shoegaze fan, but I love seeing artists prance around like dickheads onstage. Some more than others. I don't care about their ego, it's not like I'm going to run into them at the IGA.

Zoso and Robber Soul? The only thing I would add to that is The Jimi Hendrix Experience's "Are You Experienced?"

Delete them both and download Zen Arcade by Husker Du and Nowhere by Ride instead.

He's alright, if he'd needed something he would've woke me. And nothing's out of palce or destroyed. I think he just sat on the couch and read the book I saw him with when I got up in a bloody panic. Mum siad he didnt' go to sleep till 11 last night, which is way late for him, so he probably hasn't been up that long.

Oh, no. I meant that a small child was up that long without you and didn't trash anything.

He has autism. He was perfectly content to read the same book over and over.

Just about everything 10 touches these days is five different kinds of shit. I can't believe they, of all people, had the good sense to bring back Good News Week - and they still manage to poison it with stupid cross-promotional bollocks that I'm sure McDermott & Co. must find bloody nauseating.

True. I guess I'm just not overly entertained by that sort of egocentric acting, except in a let's-laugh-at-it kind of way. I imagine I would have rather enjoyed seeing the classic shoegazers go about their stuff ... that's really what music's all about to me. If I wanted theatre, I'd go see a play, you know?

Also, the idea of bumping into Jagger at an IGA is fucking hysterical.

You don't actually have to delete any albums, Pfan. That was just an Ax-esque twist of the arm. But if you don't have them already and are after slightly earlier classics, go for Love's Forever Changes, Beach Boys' Pet Sounds and Sunflower/Surf's Up and Curtis Mayfield's Curtis. And I envy you, knowing that you will be enjoying such great music for the first time, even if it doesn't quite tickle your fancy.

I've already sent him Nowhere.

Bizarrely, I don't recall him digging Seagull. SEAGULL.
