I don't believe it, but the awesomeness of the umlaut has blinded me into buying a bunch of these.

I would say if he hasn't even started it then it wouldn't hurt to at least ask. No sense in just letting someone have $150 if it was just in the discussion phase.

'Never Mind the Bullocks' is basically two mediocre musicians playing very basic, straight ahead rock so they probably figured Lydon's vocals/lyrics were the only thing redeeming about it.

I do love that record, even if they were a manufactured band.

I never got into Belle & Sebastian because all I'd heard seemed way too college-girl-oriented. As in "Dude, you don't like this band - you just want to get in with that girl who draws skeletons and drinks PBR." However, I've been listening to The Life Pursuit just fanatically. I probably would have ...

On kind of a side note, I am astonished at how lucky Ozzy is, or at least how easily things fall into his lap. - 1st BS album 'accidently' becomes benchmark of entire global metal genre - Last second song Paranoid becomes classic rock staple - After getting kicked out of BS and is pretty much in the...

That is a generous offer!

My favorite instrument. I tip my hat to anyone who takes on something that requires more than all four major appendages to operate.

I just saw a completed auction for a Metric Halo 2882 for $650. If that's the trend, that is a disgustingly sick deal. And by sick, I mean filthy and dope...

I can just see two guys working on something for the Discovery Channel - like a shot of a lone iceberg in the middle of the ocean - and one guy goes "check this shit out" and punches that sound in and they both start cracking up.

It has to be an out of control inside joke.

Question for those who do t.v. work

Do you guys have an emergency "soaring eagle call" database on flash drive that is always carried around at all times? Like on a keychain or in your wallet? :)
