  1. Unlike most here, it seems, I like both. Laurie Anderson had an exceptional string of albums in the 80s/90s where she bridged pop, poetry and the avant garde. Of course, I realize that’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but at least it’s original, which is more than can be said of most mentioned here. Lana del Rey’s latest, Norman Fucking Rockwell, is shockingly good, in a Once Upon a Time in Hollywood-way. I’d never bothered listening to her before that, but now I’m actually looking forward to what she does next.
  2. Klopp happy but not happy. Absolutely furious with BT and Sky for the match scheduling.

    Thiago Alcantara

    Let’s face it, he’s never going to play for us again.
  4. She does have a wiki page, but I assume you were being obtuse. Apart from being an idiot, of course. Oh, you have not heard of something, must be shit, then.
  5. Cat Power is probably among the most influential artists for female singer-songwriters the last 20 years.
  6. Monáe is much, much better than Rihanna and her ilk that’s been mentioned.
  7. She was excellent singing with others.

    Greatest Female Solo Artist - Poll

    Kate Bush. PJ Harvey. Cat Power. Dolly Parton. Laurie Anderson. Angel Olsen. Lhasa de Sela. Artists from classical music should really be excempt from this, as it’s just a whole different ball game, as they say. I kind of feel the same of jazz, as you could easily fill all 7 slots with jazz greats. Then again, I guess the same could be said of country music greats.

    Neil Young

    They forgot about Weld, though, so slightly misleading headline.
  11. Event Horizon. Babe 2: Pig in the City
  12. Allow me a bit of wankery: I guess he means he prefers Erasure’s more generic (a.k.a.boring) take, and that he’s confused by the 7/4 beat of the original, which mirrors the lyric’s theme of stumbling into uncertainty. When the rhythm changes to the more familiar 4/4 in the «son he said, I’ve come to take you home»-part, the song reaches its ecstatic denoument.
  13. I think - and hope - that Kabak’s spitting episode has ruled him out of any possible transfer. Don’t want him.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    Surprisingly, Hames trained today and is in contention to start against Southampton... So, yeah, career defining injury there.
  15. On the plus side, I wasn’t sure how Thiago and Hendo would work together in midfield. The answer is perfectly. And, yeah, a thoroughly incompetent referee and VAR performance.

    Top 5 books you have read

    Are you sure that’s James Jones? I can’t find any mention of him in a particularly bad light there, although her pen and tongue were plenty sharp enough for others? She does mention that she has never read him... As for Jones’ letters, he doesn’t mention O’ Connor once, so I doubt they ran in the same circles...

    Top 5 books you have read

    I agree. I absolutely devoured the trilogy. Reminded me why I love reading. Entertaining AND quality! Not always the case... Whistle, while not bad, doesn’t quite reach the heights of the first two novels, I thought. Still, a pity that Jones seems pretty much forgotten these days.

    Top 5 books you have read

    Yeah, after having read the letters of both of them, I’ll certainly believe that. They were not easy-going.

    Top 5 books you have read

    A list of best books before 18 years, and one for after. After 18: Cormac McCarthy: Blood Meridian. James Jones: The Thin Red Line. Flannery O’ Connor: Wise Blood. Kazuo Ishiguro: Remains of the Day. Johns Steinbeck: Grapes of Wrath. Before 18: Tolkien: Lord of the Rings. Bram Stoker: Dracula. John Fowles: The Magus. Alan Moore: Watchmen. Alistair Maclean: Take your pick, probably Where Eagles Dare.

    Villa (A) Premier League - 4/10/20 - 19:15

    Lest we forget, Atkinson is a really, really bad ref.
