Who's Amanda Palmer? Should I know? Please don't tell me. I'm with Neil when it comes to popular culture, ignorance is bliss, though I have been exposed to the gangnam dance.
I liked that bottle of absinthe remark. I was drunk on that particular drop the 1st time I heard Intriguer. I fell asleep on the couch, thinking, what a crappy album! I changed my mind after I sobered up and played it again.
Were you here, unilooney, when SS slammed Intriguer? Things got pretty feisty and Deb closed the thread before I'd even had a chance to sober up and listen to the album.
Fans feel protective, I think it's only natural, especially when they've copped their own flack for being fans, or for the level of their fandom. SS made a remark about Tim years ago, that I can neither forgive nor forget, though it had nothing to do with relieving oneself on stage. Make hateful comments and people are going to hate you.
I don't think SS cares, he probably gets off on it! Maybe I should take a leaf out of his book.
