Seems to me if someone has the gall to accuse Dan Fucking Savage of hate crimes, he has the right to use both barrels while defending himself against these children.

The irony of "privilege" is that these kids think they have the right to determine what language is acceptable for everyone else.

@30 Just another example of fan fiction writers ruining everything for the rest of us.

The fact that Under the Red Sky is represented at all is baffling. I agree with the assertion that there are plenty of good songs buried under that 80's production sheen, but "Wiggle Wiggle" and "Unbelievable" are not among them.
Dec 17, 2013 remarkablyadept commented on Live Stones c.1971, Mick Taylor Era.
Mick Taylor is the best lead guitarist the Stones ever had. The odd thing is, for all their endless live album releases, the Taylor years were very under-represented until recently. The blu-ray of Ladies and Gentlemen, The Rolling Stones is a revelation, and the officially released bootleg The Brussels Affair both crackle with life, both thanks to Taylor's effortless but dynamic licks.

Also, to hear him tell it, Taylor was concerned about getting even deeper into heroin if he stayed in the band.

What @6 says. I've flown into Wichita many times. There are approximately 10 gates and the entire airport closes down around 7:30. It would be like trying to blow up Paine Field.

"Against All Odds," yo.

@11 That's the piece that's been missing for me. Who are these "potential investors." Typically, unnamed buyers don't pan out.
May 23, 2013 remarkablyadept commented on Bill Wixey Puts Morgan Freeman to Sleep.
I'm oddly proud to say I watched this live and thought, "I'll see this on a few blog posts later."

Who's god now?

As long as this steers clear of Promise Keeper-esque misogyny-cloaked-in-"religious tradition," I'm all for it.
