Fuck yes. Glad you liked them - I didn't rock out much during the holiday, mainly listened to the radio in the car since Dad was there, but I did listen to JT in full (actually, I skipped BTBS and RTSS because they do nothing for me anymore) down at Fleurieu, which was cool. Hadn't listened to the album in a long time.

He's only got himself to blame too!

Eh, really you didn't miss much. I'm trying to think of significant forum events and there really weren't any. Like the thread we knocked aside in 6.5 hours? We were just chatting amongst ourselves; no huge flamewars or anything riveting like that.

There was a suggestion that we need to write our own Superthread Purity Test, though, to address some of the deficiencies with the current one.

Haha, how did this come to be? How is the other one deficient?

I routinely start JT from RHMT nowadays since I've heard the first half so much, though if I were to start from Streets, ISHFWILF is the only song I'd skip prior to RHMT. And, of course, on the second half I skip TTYW. My own U2 listening lately has been pretty much just October, though. And With A Shout, despite the fact I like it, still won't stick in my head. I expect when Phail does it, I'll end up just singing "Jeeee-rooo-suuuh-liiiiim, woooaaaaooohh, to the side of a hill! Blood was spilt! Jeeee-roooo-suuuuuh-liiiiiim!" over and over again.

And I totally need more rockin' Ride/Catherine Wheel/Swervedriver/Verve sort of shoegazer.

1. It is not possible for a man to get 0%, since a man can't have an abortion.
2. I shall call this the Mia Flaw. Mia is 83% while I am 69%. Mia has lived more than me. By all rights, Mia should be lower than me. And she sure as hell should not be equal with uncoolian.
3. Plus we just want some more interesting stuff in there. Some Superthread-specific stuff too, like "have you drunkposted on the Superthread? Did you get drunk specifically to drunkpost? Did you only get drunk because people on the Superthread encouraged you?" sort of questions.

I would have probably skipped some more if it weren't for the fact I was in the car, didn't want to be too distracting. Though I still wouldn't skip WOWY, fuck the fact everyone's heard it a billion times and that it's inspired terrible songs in an even greater number, that is still one damn good song.

I downloaded Loop's Heaven's End tonight, never heard any of their stuff (I remember seeing their albums worth over sixty dollars before) but I heard this was one of the great masterpieces of the slightly pre-shoegaze era. I think I'll get to it tonight. Also got some Swirlies and Skywave to get through, but what I've heard from both of them is real cool.

I had always wondered why Mia's was rather high. Yeah, I'm digging these ideas, completely.

I'm thinking we also need something like "have you taken a photo of a train/plane/stadium/rock for somebody on the Superthread?" question, and "have you put off other activities to spend time on the Superthread?"

The test could be full of serious lulz.

Yeah, I'd never skip WOWY. It still sounds brilliant. I just wish it had the Shine Like Stars verse. That really makes the song and sends it to another level entirely.

I'm not familiar with any of those three - do tell me what they're like. Right now, I'm actually listening to Chrome again. I think as an album, I prefer Ferment, but Chrome's awesome too. Kill Rhythm is one hell of an opener.
