(And I wasn't a college student yet, just a highly pretentious high-schooler.)

R. Chops speaks the truth. (Also, Low-Life and Meat Is Murder. And only one year away from EVOL...)

I was totally with Dave until he dropped the comparison to Marquee Moon and Entertainment! Those two records are seriously innovative, while Psychocandy is genius pastiche: pinching the Ramones basic recipe, adding Velvets fuzz and drone, and sticking to the act for the duration of the album as if their lives depended on it. In its commitment to its own style, Psychocandy's got more in common with Andrew WK's I Get Wet than the debuts of Television and Gang of Four..

Thanks for your comments, druiddude and delirian. I was running with the idea that the stupid pointless awfulness of the massacre was clear to all who knew the facts, but I can see how my item could read as 'shallow and callous.' So I've added another couple sentences, in hopes of correcting the emphasis. (You still might disagree with my take, but at least my true feelings are represented in words.)

I think of this song every morning, as the note hit by my sonic toothbrush is the same as the opening piano note and my brain fills in the responsing piano tinkles. It is a perfectly lovely way to start the day.

Really? Not for me...

So long as Christians insist they're being persecuted by the Gay Agenda, legitimately threatening speeches by even the fringiest Christian wackos deserve an airing.
