I Want to be Adored

So when you don't have much to say, you just post pictures you ripped off the inna-nets.


I was flipping through the NME's 100 greatest albums ever. I guess these are the most 'British' sounding records. #5 is the new Arctic Monkeys. That record just came out 2 weeks ago, and I still don't 'get it.' WTF?

#1 is the s/t by Stones Roses circa 1989. I wondered why I didn't know this record backwards and forwards, so I picked it up on the work servers to see if I could dig it. So far, so good, but #1?

It just opens my eyes to American's view on British music. Loveless by MBV didn't even make the list. Uh, what? And the Smiths do about as good as the Stones and the Beatles, but the Smiths were HUGE over there. Like played on the radio and shit.

I can't believe that fucking Artic Monkeys bullshit. I think I threw up a little in my mouth.
