It's about an alien, not drugs, btw.



I've been discussing (as much as that's possible on tumblr) Dylan's "more soulful" original vs. The Byrds "It's All Over Now" which touches me more, due to the close harmony singing and the oomph of the key change. Thought of all my tapes and then of all my vinyl - le sigh - and discovered Bad Religion's "It's All Over Now" which in the end isn't post worthy. It sounds more melodic, but Hüsker Dü'is epic "Eight Miles High" is the better cover (Roger McGuinn agreed).

I call this my sound-gpoy; how I am on the inside, while immobile on the outside.

Interestingly, my cats are fine with this hardcore version but freak out over the original Rickenbacker jingle-jangle!



In my indescribably painful snail-pace of throwing away what was my life, last century, I weeded out five NMEs from 1995 today (of course I have none from 2005 when I'd need them now). Some short articles seemed a shame to trash since they're not available anywhere else, so I scanned and uploaded them. I know this is of no interest whatsoever here, which makes the content all the more relevant. Radiohead sounding phenomenal because they were Ugly Boys - fucking writer, ugly girls do actually suffer more - and The Smiths ruining more lives than they saved by being better than their clones - I know I was a minority then, but who'd believe it today?

This is serious. As I said already, this is the death blow to all fandoms. This isn't just about video downloading.

Perfect role assignments.



Why does this have so few reblogs? TMBG are big in the US I thought?

Universe man being kinder to smaller men like person man, must show this to the Mycroft fen I know.

Not sure if they'll see it though.
