I figure that if we're going to talk in accents, I should just type as normal and leave it to the rest of you to imagine each vowel as either an 'i' or a 'u'.

Mmm, laziness.

Thank Zeus it's only 500 words.
Is it going to be easy to reel off 500 words without too much effort?

Wait, I just realised you're probably referring to a different GG to the one I first thought of. So does having a screen name that abbreviates to GG translate to having awesome Photoshop skills?

I'm kicking off my album listening for the summer.

Starting off with Radiohead's OK Computer. I've never listened to a full album by them, and it's only fair to give their commonly held magnum opus a shot.

I guess the good thing about this essay (which I am not going to do right now because I have a headache and am about to go to bed) is I only have to write about one of eight different works to choose from. Will probably do Hirst's one of the big shark, uh The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living.

This'll be interesting.

Electioneering is a good song.

The only song I've heard off this album is Paranoid Android, the only Radiohead I've liked so far.

Make that two for today: Radiohead's OK Computer and, my first ever REM album, Murmur.

Good times.

It's been so long that I barely remember what it sounds like. I likely thought little of it, but I at least appreciate the Hitch-Hiker's reference.

Murmur? Certainly not the album I would start with.

I imagine you'll enjoy it more than I do, though. I think Fables Of The Reconstruction and Reckoning are REM's two best.

Right. Should be interesting. I still haven't heard all of their discography - I've heard most of their eighties work, but not too much since then. I have Monster, and besides the genius of What's The Frequency, Kenneth?, it's pretty crap.

Do point out the quality songs on Murmur to me. I like Radio Free Europe and Sitting Still, but the rest quickly loses me and I haven't bothered to sift through the songs I don't like to find anything else that I might actually enjoy. I feel like there must be another one or two songs there that I'd like but I'm just too bored listening to the whole album to find them.
