I have heard good things about some of his solo work, that he's branched out into some interesting and different stuff, so I would like to hear some of the better work he's done post-Genesis.

But I've familiarized myself with the album already. Just bringing up the press to make a point that my opinion isn't quite a lone one, that's all.

Are you upset with me about something, Screwtape? You sound a bit tense tonight.

Now onto RHCP's Hard To Concentrate. I think the only song I've heard from Stadium Arcadium is Snow (Hey Oh).

Pretty sure I would like them a lot. Another band I want to see over the summer is Weezer, if they ever drop by. I've heard many great things about their live show.

Wet Sand is my favorite RHCP track, which is from that album.

I love everything about RHCP that's not Anthony Kiedis.

But he is questioning my musical tastes over what the press says. How fucked up is that?

He's not! You're distorting his statements. I think his surprise at your liking of the album is quite similar to the "how can you not like Achtung Baby?" attitude that I often receive. Certainly not "your musical tastes are wrong because you disagree with the press".

The full version of Bowie's Heroes is my second favorite song ever.
