best thing that ever happened on this board imho
It has to be, it sums up everything about this clutterfuck place in one post.
It's either that, or the time Mitch Williams' brother-in-law dug up a 3-year-old post and threatened to sue Wolt.
That was so beautifully random. I remember Jen asked him his opinion of Wire, which was perfectly out-of-nowhere.
Well, I wanted to know!
That whole affair was so surreal that I quite literally forgot it happened somehow. I think my brain refused to accept it was a real memory.

Wire is something I run in the homes I remodel. That said, I want say I'm into the Punk genre. Using minimal powers of reasoning (sweating profusely,I wasn't aware we had auiz t tioday) I believe there is an industry magazine titled "Wired' but I'm sureey feature all genres of music. I could simply look it up, Nah, takes the fun out of it. I am going with '"No" Reege. Final Answer! I went with no bec ause I think a Punk band would have a bit more creativity in their band's name. Now cones the part where you can #1. Scholars me on wmy answer was not only wrong, but let me know that my essay answers are Lackluster at best,#2. Inform me that I am more than welcome to post on the John Tesh forum. You guessed correctly when thought I had no clue this was dedicated to Punk. Every now and then I look to see what articles there are on my brother. Cone to think of it when I signed up my first email said: "You lost Pool"? Out of respect for you and your site I will throw myself out.I wil peek through the window to see my test grade. Thanks
Not as pithy as "That will Americana for humbug," but there's a mysteriousness, a sticky depth here that demands respect and consideration.

The bolded part is so good to me. I think I know what he is saying, as opposed to Americana for humbug, but it is probably my favorite thing ever written on this board.
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.

Will it Americana for humbug? was the quiet question that rang through the half-lit beginnings of the board. Again and again it rang out. Will it Americana for humbug? a thought that became a demand that begat a whole new world. It was whispered in the taverns and on the streets, daubed across the walls of the necroprolis. Will. It. Americana. For. Humbug. Our very beings begged for an answer and no solace could be found and no sleep would come until we could finally know.

And then the prophet came, half crazed, from the wilderness. And he told us. And then disappeared.

I don't get it. I mean the basis of the potential lawsuit.
The space aliens that live inside the pyramids told him to do it.
That's the real answer, but the cover story was that CK said the other guy (it wasn't rcs; I think the guy's handle was robberdub) libelled him during the argument and that this would negatively affect CK's earning potential. Something like that. It was crazier than the squirrels running loose in CK's head.
Wait - CK only saw Clash Mk II live? That blows my mind.

No, it was just what Robberdub alleged.
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.

Yeah Chris has mentioned here on a few occassions he had seen both line-up's. I know Chris has said some dumb things at times but we're all guilty of that. It's only a message board afterall. Just be nice, right?

Truly a joyous anniversary!
"The only thing that really occurs to me that I can say on this is to point out how fascinating it is that the Hassan-i-Sabbah archetype keeps turning up over and over again ... He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."

If dumbness was measured in Clash songs you would be 9 remixes of Mensforth Hill.
