Usually the best place to find all sorts of obscure lollies too.

God, I should wander down to the dairy now, but I don't wanna. Maybe tomorrow.

What, you guys don't have greengrocers and bakeries?

Admittedly, greengrocers are starting to become a thing of the past due to supermarkets, as are butchers, but god, the world would end without bakeries doing quality breads and danishes and buns and pies and sausage rolls and croissants and ...

We have bakeries. Many cities have farmer's markets and the like, to get fresh local (usually) produce. There are several in my neighborhood, and then the gigantic tourist destination Pike Place Market downtown.

There's no way, except acoustic, they could get it wrong, too.

Zuh? I mean, it's a bit of a silly lyric, but there's much, much worse elsewhere. Looking at you, "with a mouth full of teeth, you ate all your friends".

To borrow a phrase, :fuckyeah:

I actually think I've grown to like that line. Maybe it's like how Bono once described Michael Jackson's voice... if you pretend he's singing in another language...

I think I've lost my love for SYCMIOYO. I don't know, God it's got some heartwrenching lyrics, but something seems lost in the delivery. It being commercialized when it feels like it should be more private didn't help either /ramble
That's kinda how I feel about how they're doing One live in the recent tours... I liked it better when it was raw and personal and miserable.

I was kinda surprised they put out Sometimes as a single... that and Stuck. I guess if Bono likes wearing his heart and deepest anguish on his sleeve, might as well make a buck out of it as well.
