You wouldn't. I mean, there's three of them, and they're not even twins. :shifty:
And one of them was black—what kind of crazy womb were they occupying?!

Hell, I'm going to see if I can dl a copy of "Into the Gap" for curiosity purposes. Reports will follow if successful.
We never did get that report.

I either didn't find a copy or got distracted by something shiny outside my window. Whatever the case, I don't have a copy and my curiosity has vanished.

this is the thread that I made John Cougar Mellon Balls! I forgot all about that. A proud moment, indeed.

This revival of Frankie Goes To Hollywood we're witnessing this week is just a little too over-the-top, no? I mean, I know he's 0.001% less repulsive than both the Nazi and the Cro-magnon who oversaw the rise of the world's #1 child rape factory, but the magic of rock-bottom expectations isn't exactly...um, magical. I feel like the rock star treatment is coming way, way more from Protestants and agnostics than it is from the perpetually depressed flock. Which is just weird to me being...um...a perpetually depressed involuntary and lapsed member of the flock.

Any movement away from the Gordon Gecko brand of papacy from the past 30 years is a plus, just in the sense of easing off some of the hideousness. And anything that has the conservative faux-moralists getting the vapours is a positive of sorts.

The Catholic church, with its centralised power structure inherited from the Roman Empire which spawned it, can only ever be a force of solid gold bureaucratic exploitation. It was the world's first corporation. It will always be an entrenched conservative force, holding back progressive, positive social change with the rumbling of its giant jerked knee. This strange, current Pope-a-mania enthusiasm is very funny and very specifically tied to 2015. He's a dying giant, an anachronism with a twitter account and 2,000 years of atrocities to sit atop.

Watching the get all tinkly over his more liberal leaning has been great.

“I just think the pope is wrong,” Christie said Sunday in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“The fact is that his infallibility is on religious matters, not on political ones.

I'm tracking down a copy of Into the Gap to listen to this afternoon. Three-plus years late, but I will deliver a verdict. Stay tuned.

edit: I liked it a lot more than I thought I would, tho the nostalgia factor was likely skewing the favourability here. It's definitely pop and of the synth dance variety, but overall it's not very rosy sounding and even incorporates more Middle Eastern rhythms and sounds to the package. Which doesn't make this a radical statement and way forward or anything, but it is a distinct from most of the early MTV bands. I likely won't listen to it again for some time, but if I do it won't be a guilty pleasure.
