I'm currently feelin: tired tired

For my fellow Pop Tarts here in the community:

A fantastic little write up I found about "Pop" from around the time of the rumours about it being re-recorded. You might not agree with his assessments of the other albums, but I think he gets alot spot on when it comes to why "Pop" failed and how amazingly brilliant it really is. Enjoy!

Also, that site is just fantastic in general *G*

I was never a Pop-hater, nor Pop-lover. But now I want to read The Allegory of the Cave. :-X Thanks for this.

Allegory of the cave was all over my 11th grade English class.
Long story short, this joke emerged:
"I don't want to take the AP test! I'm gonna be in the cave, in a forest putting the onion back together with duct tape!"

But really, isn't everything one big allegory to the cave? The Matrix anyone?

I'm perfectly fine watching shadows on the wall sometimes.

Pop is everything All That You Can't Leave Behind isn't. By that I mean, it was good ;P (Disclaimer: I don't hate ATYCLB, I just think Pop is about 10 times better)

This is a little rant about Pop I came across a few months ago, that I love:
http://www.femgeeks.net/sunrazor/pop.htm

I love the last bit of it:

"You can say you didn't like it. You can say that you felt that they took the irony thing too far. You can say that the album could have used another couple months of work.

NEVER, EVER say that it wasn't good, though.

Or I'll tear out yer kidneys."
