I didn't realize that "a momentary diversion on the road to the grave" came about this early.  One of my favorite Achewood bits, or whatever.  Maybe there was just a poster I liked?

When I first read this comic I had never used a drum machine.  It turns out those things are a pain in the ass.

Arts & Entertainment / The Transition Album
« on: August 26, 2010, 05:13:58 am »
We have done this before.  The freewheelin, times are a changing, another side of, bringing it all back home, highway 61, and blonde on blonde.  Highway 61 prob my least fav, bringing it all back home or another side of fav followed by blonde on blonde.  If not for last 2 songs on highway 61 Dylan would have 5 classic records.  I also listen to John westley Harding, Nashville skyline and the one with if dogs run free and the man in me, but those ain't classics.  Sorry about shorthand and for doing this again.  On phone, when home from work will take this in a dif way.

So it seems to me there are two (well probably 5 or 6, but these two are generally the best) types of great bands.  The first type live fast, die young (sometimes- if we are lucky), and make a few classic records.  Those would be, like The Beta Band, Modern Lovers, The Flatlanders, The Vaselines, The Stooges, The Monks, The Velvet Underground (not really but), early REM, early Camper Van Beethoven, Clinic, Stone Roses, Pavement (please, for all of us, don't listen to anything past Crooked Rain Crooked Rain) etc. etc.  These bands make a few classic records, or one, then quit or put out trash (coughREMcough minus New Adventures in HiFi), but basically they start off with some groundbreaking shit, then just get worse their whole careers.  The next type start pretty tame/average, etc., then progress into the GREATEST BAND EVER.  Here you've got Dylan (kinda weak, Bootleg Collection Volume 1 proves that, but his self titled album fits the mold), Radiohead, Super Furry Animals, Supergrass, Flaming Lips, the Minutemen, The Replacements, etc., etc. 

So like, obviously, this is kinda generalized, but usually my favorite bands will come from one of these groups.  But if someone said you have to have one favorite I would almost always say a band in the second group.  The second group usually has a longer peak (usually 2-3 albums instead of 1-2 for the first), and puts out one album as good or better than the first groups one good album.  Usually, for me, this album is their transition from one thing to another.  With Dylan, it is Bringing it All Back Home.  The Beatles- Revolver.  The Minutemen- Double Nickels on the Dime.  Radiohead- Bends or Ok Computer.  Supergrass- In It for the Money.  SFA- Radiator.  The Replacements- Hootenanny.  The Flaming Lips- well they switched a few times but lets say Clouds Taste Metallic and Soft Bulletin- strong case for In a Priest Driven Ambulance too. 

So basically these transitions records are the best.  They are the best records.

I will try to think of some more examples so everyone can see what I am talking about:

Springsteen- Born in the USA- from wannabe Dylan to American Observer
Talking Heads- Fear of Music- New Wave rock to, uh?
Wilco- Summerteeth (though I prefer AM)- country to rock
Black Lips- Good, Bad, Not Evil- flower punk to a crap shoot.

This might have made my point even more muddled.

What happens when a victim of a horrible crime attacks the defendant in court?  Like in this video: the guy being attacked raped and killed the attackers mom.  So like, that is battery right?  Do they actually get arrested or do they just get taken away and not allowed back at the trial?  If someone actually charges them it always gets plead down right?

I had the premium service for three months then quit cause it wasn't really worth it, now this bullshit.  I mean, if he keeps coming out with a good comic I'll keep reading.  Achewood is actually the only comic I have ever read, so, yeah, I like it a lot.  But seriously, if he is going to do this bullshit does he have to tell us about it, or at least could he not promise a comic then not give us one?  This is starting to get pretty fucked.
