Really, can we get back to talking about the Clash?

Solid

Feel free to talk about them. They don't come up too often because they don't release new products too often and revelations and new boots are few and far between.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

That is Deep Clash Theory, guy named after movie bowler who liked 8-year-olds, dude. Don't you recognize your own kind of superfan?

Have you tried looking in the Last Gang subforum? If you're just seeing happy birthdays you might be in the Right Profile subforum which is for techy issues and birthday announcements.
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.

You should definitely feel free to start some interesting conversations about The Clash.

This website has been dying for years. Let it.

I mean, I love saying the same things about the same 6 albums over and over again, myself.

I actually think this place does okay considering the Clash have been finished for years, and we have the competition of Facebook groups etc. And if there is any big news in Clashworld it usually breaks here first. Still my favourite forum anyway.

I'm here to talk to my friends. You might try making some. They're nice to have.

Anyway, you've been enrolled here since mid September and you haven't contributed one post. There is a whole subforum full of Clash discussion. The "Clash Observations" thread alone has nearly 2,000 replies. Get involved.

ps. I think this might be Chuck or Kaleb or someone on a wind up.

Beaneaters likes to troll as much as anyone, but he usually signs his own name to it.

We haven't really had someone stomp in and tell us we're doing it wrong since Clashy, no? I'm gonna say it: I miss that prep school Stalinist.
