    Chris Benoit Dead - Toxicology results released

    I still love watching the Naked Gun movies, even though I know what he did. I never watched the NFL before that though. I agree. If anything, OJ's role is only made better. Can't say the same about Chris' matches, though. I think I'll give it a few years and try again.

    Albums that are unlike any other album in a band's discography

    Hmmm... Aphex Twin -- Selected Ambient Works, Vol. 2 The Minutemen -- Three Way Tie (For Last) Black Flag -- The Process of Weeding Out Leonard Cohen -- Death of a Ladies Man Sonic Youth -- Confusion is Sex (to an extent) Pink Floyd -- Piper at the Gates of Dawn The Residents -- Eskimo (even though it did set the direction for some of their 80's material) James Chance & The Contortions -- Buy Pavement -- Slanted and Enchanted (unless you count the singles/EPs that they did before it) Some of those may be slight stretches, but I think that each of them is relatively distinct from the rest of the artist's discography, whomever that may be. Another good one to note would be Zappa's Jazz From Hell, although many of his albums sound entirely different from each other, so I don't know if that should count.

    State of the SWF, 2007

    From what I can tell, by now you've got a much more impressive track record in the fed than I ever did, WC. EDIT: And you have Voltron as your avatar, to boot.

    State of the SWF, 2007

    A little late arriving on the scene here, but I too am severely saddened to see the Fed die. However, as many others have stated, I can hardly say that this situation is unexpected. These problems have been slowly mounting for nearly three years now. Anyway, I don't know how much commitment I could really offer in the way of helping out with CC, but if there is anything small that needs to be done (marking matches, etc.) with no one to do it, then I would be glad to help out. Either that, or I could perhaps add to the manpower on the writing side of things.... I'm not too confident that I would fare too well in competition upon returning (haven't been in the loop or even watched wrestling in general in a while...) but at the very least I could show for my matches. I've got a decent amount of free time on my hands these days, so -- regardless of the capacity -- let me know if there is anything that I could do to help out around here in order to ensure that the SWF goes out with a bang.

    Comments which don't warrant a thread.

    The new Residents album, Tweedles, is fantastic. The band has been aging very strangely as of late.

    Tom Waits

    Yes. Where were you when Real Gone dropped a few years ago?

    The Name Of This Thread Is Talking Heads

    Definitely one of my top two or three bands. I like More Songs About Buildings and Food and Fear of Music the best, but any of the first five albums could be considered a classic. Little Creatures and True Stories are really fun pop, the two live albums get more plays in my car than the studio albums, and Naked is an okay listen for a big fan of the band's but the quality is really kind of sub-par there. David Byrne solo is much better live than on record, but Rei Momo and his newest album are both awesome (unless you have an aversion to world music.) So are The Catherine Wheel and My Life in the Bush of Ghosts (w/ Brian Eno,) both of which he released while still in TH. Right now David Byrne is working on a Brazilian disco-opera with Fatboy Slim. It's been in the works for a while, but my excitement is still on the rise. EDIT: Oh, and Edwin, you should at least buy one or two more albums before you quit on the T-Heads. Honestly, I would never see Fear of Music being one of your favorites anyway.

    Covers you liked better than the original?

    uhm, no. I just noticed this, and yes. Why? John Cale didn't understand this band at all. I hate his production on the original Stooges recording of it, as well as the rest of the album it came from. Too clean and sterile; plus, mixing Iggy's vocals so high in the mix was total idiocy. Why attract attention to the lyrics, which was the one bad thing about the band? Had the s/t been less sanitary and more sleazy like Fun House, I would never have stated the above. I don't really want to be a jerk here, but I'm just going to have to shut you down on that one. First of all, I agree-- he Uncle Tupelo version is better. And the mixing on the first Stooges album IS very unfit for the group's sound. But, John Cale doesn't have as much to do with the poor mixing as you think. John Cale PRODUCED the album, sure, but it should be noted that when he turned the album in to Elektra Records in 1969, the sound WAS slightly sleazier and the vocals WERE lower in the mix. It was actually Elektra head Jac Holzman who took the album, and remixed it in the way that it was eventually presented. He himself raised the volume of the vocals in order to make the sound more commercial and whatnot. So, yeah-- not John Cale.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3.30.07

    ... Wow, if they do this right, this good be the greatest CGI film yet. And by the looks of this trailer, they're doing it right. Still slightly skeptical, but as a man who will admit to enjoying the third live action film, it obviously won't take too much for me to love this movie.

    Who is the defining artist of this generation?

    I.E. all things that define the current generation (late-90s/early-00s)... hence Eminem defining a generation. I don't see how that doesn't make perfect sense. Eminem and Radiohead would be my two top choices. Radiohead isn't quite as popular commercially but their fanbase has gotten pretty huge and really quite rabid. Heck, I tried to buy tickets for their L.A. shows and both of them sold out in under a minute. I think that Radiohead (like the Pixies) won't really be recognized during their creative peak but later on will definitely be recognized as a defining voice of this generation. I really can't say I like them all that much, but to many they are the ultimate forward-thinking rock band of today. Another up-and-comer is the Arcade Fire. Again, I am not too huge of a fan, but their overexposure has made them quite fucking popular. My Dad listens to them, and I have heard many Valley Girl-types listening to them as well. Their sound appeals to a huge demographic, and on top of that their songs are more "anthemic" than most bands these days. Whether or not they even have a chance though really depends on their second album. Outkast is a good one. And I like them a lot better than any other band I've mentioned in this thread, too.
