I don’t know what I think of that, but it’s plausible.

Comment on Why “Rubber Ring” Is the Best Song Ever by David http://gloriousnoise.com/2003/why_rubber_ring_is_the_best_so#comment-633494 Sun, 03 Mar 2019 03:20:12 +0000 http://gloriousnoise.com/?p=744#comment-633494 Love that I found this post oh so many years later…but somehow someone else commented on it today as well. Great post, great memories, great lyrics, and well – I just this that this post is awesome! They have Cryfest here in DC yearly,,.the smiths versus the cure – and it’s a great time enjoying the music with others who also loved the smiths when we were all 17, and still today.

Comment on Why “Rubber Ring” Is the Best Song Ever by Lacey http://gloriousnoise.com/2003/why_rubber_ring_is_the_best_so#comment-633493 Sat, 02 Mar 2019 17:49:03 +0000 http://gloriousnoise.com/?p=744#comment-633493 The “everybody’s clever nowadays” sample is taken from a 1950s audio production of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest; I believe it’s the one with John Gielgud. I discovered this by accident when I checked the cassette set out of the local library at 15. I recognized it immediately and was so excited! This was in 1990 before the internet was a thing. I devoured everything I could find in the library by Oscar Wilde because of Morrissey’s fandom and also I was a drama nerd. :P

Comment on 2018 Soundscan Data: Total Music Sales and Streams by Nathaniel Woodward (@stubhubby) http://gloriousnoise.com/2019/2018-soundscan-data-total-music-sales-and-consumption#comment-633491 Mon, 25 Feb 2019 18:29:16 +0000 http://gloriousnoise.com/?p=19315#comment-633491 Thanks for sharing these stats! If you are interested in some figures from the 80s and 90s, I clipped this infographic from USA Today in 1994. They credit the RIAA for their numbers; it’s just too bad they don’t label all the data points.

Comment on Freebird: That Joke Isn’t Funny Anymore by Russ Dean http://gloriousnoise.com/2004/that_joke_isnt_funny_anymore#comment-633489 Thu, 21 Feb 2019 19:56:42 +0000 http://gloriousnoise.com/?p=836#comment-633489 I was told that people used to request Whipping Post before Freebird took the mantle. On Frank Zappa’s 2nd volume of YCDTOSA series (recorded in Helsinki in ’74) the band gets a request for Whipping Post but Zappa’s band didn’t know it. So the next time the band went to Helsinki they played Whipping Post. I’ve played a show where some dude was holding out a folded up piece of paper for an entire song trying to get me to take it. As a bass player. you can’t stop playing in the middle of a song so at the end I took the paper, unfolded it only to read the word “Freebird”. We don’t play it. Another band I saw kept having a guy yell Free bird ’til the singer finally told him “That’s my favorite song too” – the guy stopped yelling for it after that,

She’s a total MAGA type now. Even ran (and lost) for a local government position as a Republican. She’s a garbage human being.

I have never seen anything like that. This video is also totally my thing, except the part where everyone’s writing things down and concentrating; that implies that they all know what they’re doing and are planning it out so as not to waste time. Or they’re all doing a crossword together. But everything else really hit home
