Sandinista was three LPs of the Clash doing everything they possibly could think of, in every style they thought they could pull off (and some they must have known they couldn't), ranging from brilliant to jaw-droppingly terrible.
UDT was Green Day doing three albums of passable-to-great pop-punk.
Oh definitely. I've done the same. Sometimes it's some random guy who "wants some gargoyle cock" (seriously, that's what one said), and we exchange messages until we get off. Other times, it's one of my few "regulars"
The difference today is that it all seems mental. No real activity south of the border. Still enjoyable, though.
I'm enjoying seeing the familiar faces (or avatars) show back up since I've returned. Nice to see yours.
