What's your favorite R.E.M. song

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

Doing a listen of New Adventures before I listen to RU Talkin... and it's popping more for me than I remember. I forget how much I like 'How the West Was Won' but stuff like New Leper Test is jumping out more than ever too.

Scott & Scott need to include timestamps in their episode info so that I can quickly find the six minutes of the podcast where they actually talk about the albums.

I wouldn't mind that myself. As stated a few times, that's definitely the stuff I care the most about. Over time I've gotten into the banter a little more but at the end of the day, if it was a 45 minute show focused on the albums, I'd definitely enjoy the show more.

I wonder what they've got for next week's episode. At the end of the last one they were like, "I don't know what's happening next week, but it won't be Up!" Makes me wonder if Lance connected them to the band or something and they're dropping a surprise episode with someone from REM joining.

I tried to listen to that podcast and it reminded me of why I hate podcasts.

Or it’s just a “Slowing It Down” or something akin to “Stained Glass”. Which are really good too.

And as for not everyone can be #thetwofriends, David Sims might actually disagree with that. https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainme ... en/554579/

Yeah I could definitely see them bringing Todd Glass back. They just did a Slowing It Down episode w/ David Wain though (not that they couldn't do them close together, obv). I dunno, the way they just kind of tossed it out there, and knowing they're friends w/ Lance who is close to the band, and the fact that they met them back in Portland, just makes me think there's bound to be an episode with them together at some point.

I have a soft spot for Up because of the context and the good songs.

I actually like some of the production choices, but I didn't live the 90s like you old fogies and also i hate 90s rock production more

i'm not a huge fan of 90s rock production either tbh. i disagreed with scott about wishing new adventures sounded more like the bends with the guitars more up front. i feel like it doesn't sound as dated as other albums from that era because it's basically a live album. (and so fast, so numb is great as is.)

I don't like 90s production either (it's one of the reasons I don't like Automatic that much). But the songs on Up are just boring imo.

tone sincere i love up and think it's really good but given what i know about gramma's musical taste it's hard for me to imagine him liking it

obviously give it a few more spins grams but you're allowed to not like shit (even if we all reserve the right to make fun of you, it's just cause yr so dang affable)
