Hey, Quileute wolves? I've got a job for you guys...


Apparently I can't even listen to good music without being assaulted by misspellings. I just opened my Windows Media Player and was about to click over to the Media Library so I could listen to one of the many Beck albums I have saved there; in the process, I found this dreadful misspelling of the word sequel. Ugh.

I'd kinda like to hire Jacob and the rest of his pack to (in their wolf forms, of course) go chase down people who consistently misspell words (this isn't the first RPI post that was created based on a mistake that I found on my Windows Media Player). Maybe that'll scare some sense into 'em...

OK, it's Modern Guilt time. I'm just gonna go back to Windows Media Player and try to ignore the obnoxious misspelling...

While they're at it, I can think of a few other people they could chase down. What a great way to teach people about proper spelling and grammar! lol.

Indeed. Nothing like being chased by a snarling pack of wolves to inspire you to learn some grammar/spelling skills... :)

Unless one actually ENJOYS being chased down by a pack of snarling pack of wolves. Then again, I really dont need to know that about someone, really.

You know, I didn't like Modern Guilt that much when it first came out. It took some time to grow on me.

@ LadyStyx: I'd imagine anyone who'd like that is QUITE strange!

@ Secret Drinker: Really? I loved it pretty much immediately. I found "Chemtrails" really hard to get into at first, but now it's one of my very favorites (it was BRILLIANT when he played it live at the last show I went to). "Gamma Ray" and "Youthless" are my other favorites from that album. After you got more into it, which songs did you like the best?

Secret Drinker said...

The title track is nice as well as "Orphans". However, "Youthless" is probably my favorite.

I tend to listen to The Information more than Modern Guilt.

I've had a really tough time getting into *The Information*. I absolutely love the first three tracks, like the fourth and sixth tracks, and then after that, I have a really difficult time with it. I don't know why that is, because it's a good album...I just can't seem to get into it for some reason. :(
