I'm not sure why their acceptance of this issue differentiates them. Obviously religion by its very nature is based on a lot of non-scientific beliefs. That being said, I think there is an important distinction between believing in things that are non-scientific an...

Did not have a similar experience as far as worshipping KR although I had a healthy appreciation. I enjoyed the hell out of reading yours though and the spirit of your post and musical experience should be what the MB is all about. We all have similar stories with different groups or artists that j...

I notice that with most fans of their music it's either pre- or post-Neon Ballroom.
I like seeing bands evolve over time and experiment. I think it's the true mark of an artist. I think the experimentation even went too far with Young Modern, but I still appreciate the effort to experiment....

Look, you'll have people tell you their only album worth a damn was Frogstomp, or that they were "great when I was 17 years old." But there is very nearly not a more mood-inducing, dark, well-orchestrated album than Neon Ballroom. That is where the true musical genius of Daniel Johns manifests. You ...

Had a VM awakening a couple years ago. Astral Weeks is truly amazing. The thing I love about him is no matter how many times you listen to his songs, you could never time the lyrics like Van does. Really unique and courageous vocalist. He's an all time great.

Again, historically, there are 3 main sports in America.

Glad it was a Bama fan who said it. He had horrible vision in college and took some monster hits that good RB's avoid. No way he was going to make it long term in the NFL, if at all. He had brute strength which allowed him to bull over ...

Ole Miss and A&M aren't what I would call, "shitty teams." They certainly aren't world-beaters or Final Four teams, but they are solid and can certainly get hot. Ole Miss had them beat and I have no idea how they gave it away.

Big-12 and maybe the ACC I agree. Those are the ONLY two I would agree with though.
But let's not act like Kentucky has not been challenged in the SEC. They have been taken to the brink in-conference after slicing through some of the country's best OOC with ease. ...
