Correct.

As long as Screwy continues to use faulty reasoning as an excuse for his behavior, his actions will never be reasonable to others that are working on a logical wavelength.

Perhaps "impossible to understand" is just code for "illogical".

to me, saying you don't understand me is just a cop out, which has already been stated. sure, tons of people don't get other people, but then you explain your point and hopefully some light has been shed. everyone feels misunderstood at some point, from being in a discussion and you think someone's misinterpreted what you've said, to having that feeling no one gets you. but you just have to get over it and try to get people to understand where you're coming from.

actually, i'd be more shocked if you weren't editing something about nz rail.

First listen. That's my report card after the first listen. The use of the word "final" is disingenuous, it's really just showing that I finished the album.

No. People don't understand my reasoning not the conclusion neccessarily.

In all seriousness ... I suppose something like that. I've never really catalogued it in my head like that. I try to place them in context against other albums I've listened to. I'm coming up with that list this summer: it's a mix of organizing it and adding to it.
