  1. I can't imagine guys like Slats and Max giving him a long leash if he's using unfortunate life circumstances to **** with people. I've found myself on the hot seat just for implying everyone is dumb here, and for acting like an arrogant prick. The thing I love about this site is the community they are trying to cultivate allows for trolling, in good sport, but when the schtick goes so far and gets beyond guys just being guys busting each others chops in good fun, they usually course correct it.

    good. shouldn't be long now....

  2. Like anyone else I'll defend myself.  I think anyone has the right to throw up a comeback if they're insulted.

     

    Yet here we go again, sucked into the JI Vortex, right?  More fun to talk about posters you don't like than the Jets, right?

     

    Needs to stop.  Let's be fans of a football team like we're supposed to.  Let me know where you're setting up shop for Oakland and I'll stop by, buy you a beer.

    What was the attack I made, that you we're defending yourself against, when you mocked my dead sister?

  3. Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums.

     

    Christy, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you, uh, dance a little. Take the lyrics to Land of Confusion. In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting.

     

    Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Christy, get down on your knees so Sabrina can see your a$$hole. Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like In the Air Tonight and Against All Odds. Sabrina, don't just stare at it, eat it. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favorite.
