Fair enough. I actually enjoyed Hedwig , so I'll amend my previous statement. But the difference was the music was actually good. Rent still makes me want to gouge out my eardrums with a rusty nail. I just do not get the appeal, especially to people who have otherwise good musical and cinema tastes...

my regular cd player won't accept some cd's anymore, probably since there's too much dust in there. and the only reason my cd's are still in my living room is the storage is attached to the wall and i don't have an electric drill to take it off. i read the CD turned 30 years old this very week.. and...

great videos, especially the first one. i saw pere ubu perform last year, david thomas wasn't quite so agile. in fact he sat on a chair all evening. but his vocals were still as strong.

i paid E75 to see antony and his johnsons play next may. remarkably much, considering this act isn't even that big. it 'd better be good.

deevolution has nothing to do with it, it's all about entering the age of aquarius. you're obviously not all ready for it. my vote also goes to freddie mercury; not only does he have the best voice, he's also got the moves, the moustache, and leather. (edit; for even more reasons, see page 5). i agr...

You rang? ;-) All of the above, probably. Here's my babblinjagoff theory: As far as those journalists, they have to write and produce content--and are maybe not so much pressured, but influenced as to what to write about.

i was pretty much unimpressed by this record as well, not because he squeaks (i generally like guys who squeak) but by the plain mediocrity of it all. actually as the year went by i couldn't help feeling more and more dumbstruck by what musicjournalists collectively seemed to appraise. makes me wond...
