Electioneering--->Teenage Wildlife segue sounds pretty cool. I see what you did there.

Segue into "Teenage Wildlife" sounded good - one of my 10 favorite Bowie tracks. Probably the closest he's gotten to recreating the epic awesome of "Heroes."
That and Paranoid Android were the two tracks that jumped out at me off OK Computer.

It's about sixth on my top ten Bowie list. It's criminally underrated.

That's exactly how I feel after seeing Return To Forever a few weeks ago. It was so epic and amazing that I can't listen to the tracks they played live without being disappointed in the studio quality.

Not having heard the transition from Wildlife into the Frusciante track, I think your original instincts were accurate, Pfan; Une Annee would sound great just before this.

My girl friend who's going to college next year makes fun of my Bowie affection on a regular basis. Not that I care.
It would be Rick James/Charlie Murphy-esque awesome, hopefully.

Oh, so do almost all of my friends, not an uncommon thing.

"Paranoid" is in my Top 10 for Radiohead, too.

I know Lance really likes T-Dub and the rest of Scary Monsters.

It's how I feel about U2 in many cases.

My DI lists need more diversity. After DI V, I'm pretty tempted to try making a list with bands I haven't used yet. Unfortunately, I feel like I've already mined a lot of the non-metal that I think is worth putting on a DI list.

Maybe I just need to go on another music downloading binge (though those also seem to often end up in me acquiring shitloads of metal and not much else).

We all out think ourselves now and again. If any of you were Phillies fans, I'd discuss Chris Wheeler now, but I'm just going to listen to this playlist instead.

That's cool. You into electronica at all, Ax?

Yep, it's why I developed such a huge bootleg collection.

Though I feel I totally burnt myself out on bootlegs and now I'm actually quite happy to return to their studio stuff. I guess because now it sounds different, not inferior.

Mine's being haulted for DI, but I'm looking at continuing Led Zeppelin and R.E.M. pretty soon.

I recommend this. On the list I'm currently working on, 33 of the 46 artists I've never used before in any DI tournament or mini game. It'll be cut back from 46, but still, around 2/3 are new. My finished DI5 list has about 30 out of 37 new.
