Now, today, tomorrow and always
I'm sure they will and if not they can probably advise me of a place to get it printed.

It's a pdf so would I just forward that to the hotel or office supplies place?
Yep. Just make sure they get your forwarded pdf before you go out there to collect the print out, assuming you won’t be lugging your laptop around with you. But hopefully the hotel can do it for you, but I’d call in advance just so you’re not running around last minute.
Or would I have to log into my account on their computer? Yes I have a lap top!!

I listened to A Product Of... last night, Carlislebaz. Not my cup of tea (I don't think I'll listen to Set), but it's abrasive and not the synthpop I was "slating" them for earlier. In fact, I had them confused a little bit with The Human League. I thought the Thompson Twins did Don't You Want Me. Well, anyway, I was judging them purely on the hits they had here in America, which I think they can be slated for.
You do know he’s on a TTs percentage?

i will take my laptop! im gonna arrive there the day before the concert, so ill ask them then. ill have plenty of time, and if worse comes to worse ill just go down to the venue (around soundcheck time teehee) and see if theyll print it!

by the way, what time does the sound check thingie take place? will both suede and MSP be doing it? what if i go there and it's just lousy MSP? and where do i go, the back doors??

Paddy McAloon on All Boys Believe Anything/The Ice Maiden:


The Ice Maiden

Standing on the boulevard
You wish to know my name
I'm the Ice Maiden
I think perhaps you like being unhappy
I'm the Ice Maiden
The limit of your dreams
Arctic winds blow and still you believe
Love makes you one of the chosen
Die in the snow
I'll never grieve
So what if tomorrow you're frozen
Death is a small price for heaven

Welcome to the glow of high octane affairs
Esperanto style and blond disheveled hair
Subterranean streams, duckling you're a swan
Infinities of dreams imploding into one
All those nights I dreamt of you
I wonder where they've gone
You're the Ice Maiden

Standing on the boulevard
I've always known your name
You're the Ice Maiden
Let you and I grow frosty together
You're the Ice Maiden
Today you meet your match

Girl when I burn
Hell, nothing's the same
I'll singe your pretty blond lashes
We're talking fire
We're talking flame
We're talking ice into ashes
But death is a small price for heaven

All those nights I dreamt of you
I wonder where they've gone
Girl when I burn
Hell, nothing's the same
I'll singe your pretty blond lashes
We're talking fire
We're talking flame
We're talking ice into ashes
But death is a small price for heaven

“When Love Breaks Down” belongs in the Greatest Songs thread.

Nothing is done on accident. Especially if something you are responsible for could be something Moz doesn’t approve of.

That set list could have easily been moved, but instead of the band’s set up being the focus, that piece of paper sits on a table like a well-placed Easter egg from a Kubrick movie.

It‘s to drum up talk and excitement for the upcoming dates.

-I‘m not paranoid, I’m just convinced people have less and less good in them

Yourself and your constant venomous negativity is a very good example of less good in people.

First…your writing clearly indicates that you have trouble forming a grammatically coherent and correct sentence. I am sorry you lack formal academic training in any field, but I can’t help you there.

Second…there’s a fine line between negativity and being a realist. (I’m sorry, should I slow down?….)….I consider myself to be a realist, which admittedly can come off as negativity sometimes. Again, not being able understand this unfortunately doesn’t bode well for your mental acuity.

If you want, which you won’t, and I don’t blame you; take a look at my posts. Then tell me if I have ‘constant venomous negativity’ (I think I am the one that signs off my posts with a genuine ‘be well, or safe’).

Don’t go toe-to-toe with me.

I will crush you. (that’s a metaphor…and also from Rocky 3 or 4 or 2).

Or it's a, um... set list sitting on a, ah... hmmm, table? Who gives a shit if someone placed it there for the photo anyway?

Btw Kubrick movies don't have easter eggs. Modern crap made by Marvel are the films you're thinking of concerning easter eggs.
Oh c’mon, marred, I thought we had each others back. Man people are killing me for that post.

First, I’ve never seen a Marvel movie, thank goodness….second, maybe I’m wrong in my terminology but The Shining is racked so full of ‘carefully placed’ things in shots, and then sometimes missing in the next shot….or how there are a ton of references to the moon landing, the color of the VW bug in the beginning scene purposely made to be a different color than King’s in his novel just to piss him off.

I thought those were called Easter eggs??? I could be wrong.

MoZFan can go pound sand, but I like your posts so my feelings will only be temporarily hurt.

Kubrick is my favorite director btw….your thoughts on his work? ‘A Clockwork Orange‘ is genius.

Be well….

i would've thought your original post was just pointing out the obvious. everything is deliberate. if you're not being deliberate, you're being careless.

“I must break you” is a line from Rocky IV, delivered by Dolph Lundgren. “I will crush you” is not from any Rocky film. If you’re going to be a jerk to people online using references from pop culture, at least use them correctly.

Dang it….you’re right. That is the line. The best line of the movie. Delivered perfectly. Thanks for correction.

As for being a jerk….I think I have a history of being pretty nice to people for the most part on here, except for the occasional jab. And my original post wasn’t meant to be negative, it was meant to be what I thought could be going on, maybe a different take, …and then he write his bu**sh*t comment attacking me, and I’m thinking, wtf. It wasn’t meant to be negative at all. It was meant to be my take on it.
So I was defending myself against what I thought was an unjustified piece of sh*t post.

i would gorge on easter eggs till i vomit rather than watch a marvel film,absolute drivel.
Couldn’t agree more. 3rd grade plots. Absolutely no dialogue. Sadly, these movies make hundreds of millions, if not a billion worldwide because this is what it’s come to. This is what people want.
Essentially to watch a video game for 3 hours.

What's your favourite game, gordy?

2 of my faves are Halflife (not played it for a while but played them all several times), and Fallout 4; although I have recently enjoyed both Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts games, which were excellent.

Do we have a Gamers thread on here? Might make a nice change after all the other types of 'sniping' that goes on here...

Mate that whole Kubrick conspiracy, fake moon landing, room 237 bullshit movement is just a continuation of the myth that Kubrick was a crazy old recluse who was difficult to work with and hated women that was started by journalists who were pissed off at not getting access to him.

Kubrick is my all time favourite Filmmaker and I don't have time for any of that garbage. Everything Kubrick put into his films was for story and cinematic effect. He did not waste energy on any of that easter egg bullshit. That stuff is nothing but a rabbit hole tunnelling further and further away from what Kubrick was actually about. The term Easter Egg wasn't even around when Kubrick was making movies, other than a hollow egg made of chocolate.

That stuff can't really be what floats your boat about Kubrick, can it?

Not trying to be harsh on purpose mate or hurt your feelings. I'm just into Kubrick and not bullshit.

(Of course my post gets moved! God forbid someone should have a conversation in a Morrissey thread that doesn't centre on Morrissey.)
