Great song.
No. And the paper was not good.

So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

An expression of joy: a paper on Cyndi Lauper and wrestling. It's quite wonderful.
That sounds delightful. Gave me a smile on a Monday morning.

The kid writes quite well and, holy moly, he knows a lot about pro wrestling. The implications of his argument are pretty modest, but the whole thing is executed very well.

edit: Reading one now on Jello and the PMRC, which has extra interest for me personally and because I plan on writing about it myself in the next couple years.

Oh god, no. I've just hit the elite patch at the end. The papers have been very poor as a whole. I've had to downgrade my expectations or else there might have been only one A in the whole class. Despite my talking to them a great deal about do's and do-not-do's on writing and argument, I've concluded that I sound like the teachers in Peanuts cartoons. Trust me, as much as I liked most of them on a personal level, as a group they weren't intellectually curious.

Question for the musicians here (more precisely the gee-tarists): Is there a term for the guitar thing (the more prominent part in the mix) that Geordie is doing? That rhythmic pattern, I mean. It's a pretty common device, especially in early punk, and I'm curious whether it has a name, even a slang one. As in, "Hey, Nige, play a [that guitar thing] here."

Endut! Hoch Hech!

It's called a "Hey, Nige, play a pretty common device found in early punk" riff. :mrgreen:

If it was more melodic/catchier/stood out more it might be called a "figure".
