Just finished listening to this ludicrously elongated masterpiece.
Just like Nirvana’s Nevermind & Queen’s A Night At The Opera, it’s definitely worth the timeless praise it’s constantly been getting.
Well-known songs such as Candle In The Wind & the title-track are on there. But they’re not the best imo.
My all-time favorite track from it is (as offensive as it may sound) the reggae-influenced Jamaica Jerk-Off. It’s really catchy & infectious.
The jazzy songs (i.e. track 9 & 10) & the country ones (i.e. track 15 & 16) are also worth listening to.
My least faves though are admittedly the ones that’ve got a pointlessly overzealous amount of annoying repetitions (i.e. track 3 & 11).
Plus Dirty Little Girl was a little too misogynistic for what I was originally expecting from someone like Elton.
Despite that, I’m at least glad I finally understand why he agreed to perform live with Eminem now :P
Overall, it’s certainly worth the amount of time & cash I’ve been able to sacrifice towards it. Still not as great as A Night At The Opera though.
I swear to God. This is such a common background person in RTAA.
She’s like the old shopkeeper in RWBY. Who as far as I’m aware, runs a dust & noodle shop as well as drives a huge truck.
This lady on the other hand apparently does a lot of things. Ranging from (but not limited to) dolphin-researching, stage-acting, pizza-delivering, Halo4-developing, etc.
That said, has Jordan (or anyone in the RT staff in particular) assigned her a name at all? If not, has the fandom given her one?
If she’s still nameless, I’m admittedly disappointed. ‘Cause in the brony community, we pretty much name all the nameless background ponies!! :P
I still think we should have a fanon name for her, though.
What do you you guys think we should name her?
I’ve got a long personal story concerning this controversy that proves the above theory’s complete BS!
I got the news regarding the new U2 album via the OneRepublic Facebook page.
& I was like “Holy shit! Free new U2 album on iTunes! I gotta get it!”
So I opened iTunes mobile on my mom’s iPhone just to confirm that it’s free & it was.
But in less than a second without me even tapping the button, it switched from “FREE” to “PURCHASED”.
So I was like “Whoa! That’s weird. Why did it do that?” I then went to the “Downloads” section of the app & it claimed I already downloaded it. So I went “Hmm… maybe it’s already on my mom’s iPhone!”
Then I excitedly went over to “Music” & to my surprise, it wasn’t there!
& then I thought “Well if it’s not there, it’s gotta already be in my personal iTunes library, right?”
So I opened up iTunes on my MacBook. To both my surprise & disappointment, it wasn’t there either!
& that made me go “Goddammit, Apple! Where’s the free U2 album you promised me?!
I want to instantaneously have it NOW without bothering to download it!”
Whining unfortunately didn’t work. I literally had to spend effort waiting for every song & the digital booklet to download onto said MacBook.
So on the contrary of everyone complaining about receiving their free album without consent, I was disappointed about not automatically getting my free & awesome music.
I’m assuming it’s ‘cause I rarely ever use (let alone enable) cloud technology regardless of whoever’s providing the services.
I really don’t need such a thing (unless if I’m submitting music/art for a project or contest) when USBs are still dependably compatible & relevant backup devices still being used to this very day.
Though if these auto-downloads to my Apple devices weren’t from U2 & instead some incompetent music act I really dislike (e.g. 5SOS, BOTDF), then I can understand why that’d be a huge problem.
But from another prediction, say if it’s from a band I’m unaware of or don’t care about, I probably would feel indifferent & open-minded enough to check it out to see if it’s worth being free enough to take up space on my Apple devices.
Thank God it was U2, though. A band I’m actually quite fond of.
I wasn’t able to receive the free U2 album from Apple on any of the Apple devices my family & I currently own.
& it’s probably ‘cause I don’t generally use cloud technology services often enough to receive any free data.
Made a simplistic salad consisting of 2 bananas & a whole avocado.
& I also prepared a bottle of liquid chlorophyl.
Something tells me that my colon will be really happy tonight :P
According to this very old Smash Hits magazine article I found, Leo DiCaprio was apparently considered the worst actor in ‘99.
Funny how 15 years later it’s transitioned from this to the entire universe screaming “WHERE’S LEO’S OSCAR??!!”
Aw goddammit! Now the oars are broken.
Stay strong & keep that wilting rose alive, Weiss.
We’ll paddle with our hands if it means preventing the ship from sinking & it’s passengers from drowning.
