You need to chill out. You sound like a sibling of Paul Constant. Make some paintings like the guy who did the cover of Wowee Zowee, do anything, but don't write anymore. Thanks

Um, Line Out?

I'd rather they put Slog behind a paywall than have to suffer these intrusive plugs for Lineout. Just because people like to listen to music doesn't mean they want to read about it. "Dancing about architecture", am I right?

...I know that was English. I recognized each of the individual words. But other than talking about some musician playing something I have absolutely no idea what that is all about.

I am officially out of touch. I will now go listen to my vinyl records of the Andrews Sisters while looking at pictures of Betty Grable.

And can I just say, Jesus, what a snotty post.

Can we have another post, translating this one?

Or perhaps justifying its existence?

@7 -- Thx, but I don't want to get the reference.

Why is this incomprehensible drivel on slog? It's like reading greek, except I can magically undertand one phrase, and it is:

"I'm a bit of an arrogant snot. I'm a bit of an arrogant snot. I'm a bit of an arrogant snot. I'm a bit of an arrogant snot. I'm a bit of an arrogant snot. I'm a bit of an arrogant snot. I'm a bit of an arrogant snot. I'm a bit of an arrogant snot."

I couldn't extract any more meaning from it.

OK, watched the video and it still makes no sense to me, but I'm more annoyed than ever.
