And, Murph, well said.

American Idiot was just such a great leap forward. Off of the top of my head, there hasn't been anything like that in my CD collection since The Wall, as far as the album as novel/rock opera aspect of it goes. Before that, there were Tommy and Quadrophenia, and that's about it. It's right up there with all of those.

I listened to the last third of the CD on the commute this AM and was pleased to discern some Butch Vig influences. His sense of powerful pop and great hooks complements the band's very well.

[Quote:Mark] This morning, I put those tracks on, in that order. Then, I put my hands up in front of me in the ten O'clock and two O'clock positions and made "vroom, vroom" noises to see what your commute is like...

Dude, you really should slow down a bit. And craning your neck to check out that girl on the corner is really dangerous in heavy traffic.

Besides, she was too young for you anyway. They all are. [End Quote]


Scene IV:::
Neo Johnston awakes from his latest jack into The Matrix. 'The Static Age' by 'Green Day' plays quietly on a brightly lit tube amp in the background.

Neo Johnston: (shakes his head in a groggy but exaggeratedly masculine manner then exclaims..) "Medicorpheus is in trouble! He has forgotten The Matrix is not real and spends all his time dangerously racing around the city trying to charm young women into getting into his Batman black Prius Convertible."

Trinity Girl: (pounds her fists on an shamelessly branded for film sponsorship money, Axiom EP800.) "I knew this would happen. We should never have allowed him to re-enter the Matrix this one last time. He hasn't had a grip on reality since he fell for Agent Seann's bag of weed trap, had the munchies and took all the colored pills at once."

Wow, man, far out.

Thanks for the heads up on the "bag of weed" trap. When I see Sean in two days, I'll have to politely decline.

Wait, if I do that, then it messes up the space-time continuum, because this Scene IV will never have happened.

Oy, I hate time travel paradoxes.

You're lying. People in Arizona don't have lawns. That would be a complete waste of water.

People in much of California shouldn't have lawns, either...
