no, showerman is underrated. people in tzo had been hating on him but IMO he's been a good poster. therefore, he's underrated.

The Bends:

Planet Telex
Just
(Nice Dream)
Street Spirit (Fade Out)
Um, you're kinda missing arguably their best song here. Or is Fake Plastic Trees too mainstream or something?

Fake Plastic Trees

Also I see now he left off Karma Police. So he might be leaving off the mainstream stuff that the casual fans like.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, RadioHeadBlog and Forum Discussion

The catcher seems to apply a pretty glancing swipe from that angle. I don't know why he didn't pin the glove on the player a little longer and with more force.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, RadioHeadBlog and Forum Discussion

Theres another angle where its blatantly obvious that he tagged him. Not to mention its the 19th inning and a walkoff "win.' You'd think Lugo would celebrate a little. And the catcher's double-take is pretty priceless.

Because the catcher probably thought it would be close and that Lugo wasn't going to slide 9 minutes too early. You want to swipe the tag if it's gonna be close. Either way that is an abortion of a call and I hope that umpire gets carbombed.

For those who don't feel like going to the site, its a sports site based around the idea that whites are held back in sports through some huge conspiracy.

lol, yeah they do sound really polished most of the time. i get what you're saying, but they're really good. maybe it's the lead singer's voice or something, just gives off a comfortable vibe.

Give Up the Ghost. Old-school writing, new-school arrangement.
Bloom, I find, is growing on me a lot.
nice, thanks.

Not much to add to the preceding list, other than that the In Rainbows B-sides, as usual, contained some incredible stuff. The disc box they released had a second CD with eight or so songs, concluding with this and this. Better than most bands' A-sides IMO.
yeah i don't really consider disc 2 of In Rainbows to be B-sides (maybe they are technically, idk), but the entire thing is pretty excellent. plus they do have a lot of legit B-Sides and unreleased tracks that are really good songs (probably at least 100min worth), but i imagine that would only interest super-fans like me, so...
