I'm sorry, but this thread is fucking stupid. This is what I wake up to?

We move alot too, usually only in the same city but now we moved to a city over. Like 5 times in the last 10 years, not nearly as much as you. So Im sorry that youve been put through that kind of misery so many times.
Ahh, that's good that it's nearly done then. And it's often nice a few days after you've moved in, once things are unpacked but the place hasn't gotten messy yet. I always have good intentions of keeping my new places that clean, but funnily enough, within a month, it's a disaster zone again ...

Most of my moving was just around the Gold Coast, including between three different houses on the same street, believe it or not. Though it also includes moving from New Zealand to Australia and then from the Gold Coast to Brisbane to Melbourne. Melbourne and Brisbane are about 20 hours apart if you drive - that move was a bit of a nightmare.

Hi phanan and Traviud.

That thread really isn't worth the time. Yes, let's pigeonhole what qualities a masterpiece must have!

Hey, 'Ver.

Yeah, I just made a crack about Achtung Baby and walked out. I was rather pleased, however, to hear that the new album is definitely finished. Now let's hope Larry will never hear it and and they keep the doors of the studio locked tight.

Good call. And yeah, it's fairly exciting to hear it's now essentially done. Wish that it would take less than a few months for it to be released, though. Making us wait until October/November is just silly. This isn't the 1980s any more.

I couldn't believe some of the crap I was reading in the thread for that new clip yesterday. People were claiming the song sounds like everything else without being able to hear much of anything about it. FFS, it was supposedly a live rehearsal.

Yeah. When I saw people say the recording was remarkably clear - well, I expected something better than that. You cannot make any substantial judgement based on that. I'm just glad that the little bit I can hear is not anything to dent my quiet optimism.

Hold the phone.

Did Screwtape ask for a critical analysis?

I would have been much harder on him.

I just read back in the thread. What was YLB's idea? You can PM me.

Nothing special. He was just going to rickroll him. He told me he decided against it, and that was it.

Believe me, I wanted to be harsher, but the criticism had to be constructive or he would have gotten pissed off. I probably should have lowered him to an even 6 for thinking Viva La Vida is one of the masterpieces of the decade.

I can be constructive, but I'd have given him a lower score.

I honestly and earnestly ignore him, though. I refuse to read his posts. I figured his two posts there were just telling Night and Day she was a beautiful soul or something until you quoted him and made a review.

I was a bit surprised by the mark and positivity too. I thought if anybody was going to get slammed, it would be him. In fact, I've been surprised in general by the positivity of the reviews thus far. I'm sure you can imagine how different it would be if I were writing some of these.

Our pool of people so far has been very good. It's hard to write a scathing review about say, Khan, or one of my fellow Musketeers. And let's face it, for all of Screwy's douchebaginess, he hasn't always been like this. We were all favorably disposed to him at some point. Just not anymore.
