I'm going to have to pick that up now. So, I got the album today and listened to each song while reading the lyrics. I am now under the impression that Dexter is blasting on Green Day in Rise and Fall. It could also mean other things...but whatever.
Sweet! Alright, here is the story: I'm reading the book "Thermopylae: The Battle for the West" by Ernle Bradford and I've found out that many of the phrases that are in the movie were actually said. Apparently the Spartans had a great dry wit and even had a type of 'phrase' named after them, the Laconic Phrase. Lines in the movie such as "then we'll fight in the shade" were typical Laconic Phrases. One that stuck out to me was when Leonidis called out the Arcadians and how many soldiers they brought. That is a true story, but years later during a war between Athens and Sparta. I found that interesting.
Ok, question: Have you seen the movie 300 or are you familiar with it? (I have a story tied to this after your answer so hang with me.)
Second: I have now been blasted by bighead. He said something about me just wanting to score points and ignoring everyones argument and opinions. I replied brilliantly, and Little Miss is somewhat on my side, as is Thomas. Some people are getting volatile about this so I'm going to take the high ground.
I'm laughing at the fact that he just contradicted himself big time. He is a massive bag of douche...that is quite the posting history.
Oh boy...now I'm having fun. I love idiots like Offspringinghead or whatever his name is.
I do! Ancient Roman/Greek, World War II, and the 1960's in America. You?
So I've slowly been falling in love with Let's Hear it For Rock Bottom...the guitar riff at the end (2:25) keeps getting stuck in my head. Sounds like something Tom during Blink would play. I hate comparing it to them, but it sounds like it to me! I went and worked out today and listened to the entire album. I can't believe I can't skip any songs! So I've been laughing because people have thought you were a lot younger and then they see pictures of Ryder and think he was older. Makes me chuckle...
I'm gonna have to say Kid followed closely by Trust in You. It's hard because I actually like all the songs on this album. To me...this is there best album. It's hard for me to say that because I've loved all their older stuff, but I always skip songs on the other albums. I don't on this one.
I'm getting rather tired of the idiotic bickering in the reviews thread. I think it just mainly comes from people that have lived under a rock the past 10 years and still think the band is 'tru punx!' Anyway...what's your favorite song so far?
Hey thanks! Can't say I'm a fan of the music video though.
