First, it *is* one of the greatest tunes of our time.

Second, his old band Dogstar was actually in possesion of a modicum of talent

so a literal word for word transcription of the colbert show episode is a news article?  how much does one get paid to to this?

love Keanu, love Joy division, love peanut butter, never seen rollerball.

I love Keanu Reeves, or as I like to call him: E Ah Ooh E. Who's got time for consonants?

Love Will Tear Us Apart is a classic.

I went through a Joy Divison kick back in like 2016.  'Transmission' is my personal fave.

It would be a killer song to use in a skate video.

Dammit Keanu, stop liking what I don't like.

Okay enjoy it...

I actually had to look the song up and now I'm worried that YouTube will start suggesting Joy Division after every song I listen to on purpose.

Ugh such a meh song.  Ian Curtis' monotone kills the music.  Age of Consent shows that New Order was a much better band.

Rollerball is a classic. First saw it as a kid and while I didn't understand all of it, the whole dystopian thing really farked me up.

I don't have a favorite song and find it odd that people can narrow it down like that.

Too many songs, too many moods to be in.

My wife has a version of that shirt. I can take Joy Division or leave them, but they're her favorite band.

"She's Lost Control" is my go-to Joy Division song.  Still, a man of impeccable taste.

Keanu has a really dark streak, I think. I don't see how anyone that was involved with "River's Edge" couldn't. Still one of his best movies. And it has his all time best line:

"The only reason you stay here is so you can fark my mother and eat her food. MOTHERFARKER! FOOD EATER!"

In an older thread where he listed his favorite movies, he mentioned "Roller Ball". I'm glad it was clarified that it was the James Caan version. Having seen it a few weeks ago (hadn't seen it since the '80s) I'm left wondering why he enjoys it so much. It's Deathrace 2000 with roller skates with very little 'death'. It's mainly about a bunch of a shlubby assholes who are jealous of Caan's popularity and how it threatens their comfortable position in the status quo. Just Boiler plate wish fulfilment social commentary about rigid caste systems.  Just a ton of better movies to choose from.

Jack Sabbath: I don't have a favorite song and find it odd that people can narrow it down like that.

Too many songs, too many moods to be in.


I can't even decide on a favorite band or favorite guitarist or anything else. I've thought about the "desert island record" thing.

How about giving me a guitar instead?. I can't play, but hopefully I could figure it out given nothing else to do for years on end. At some point I'd get sick of my "favorite" album.

When I was a teenager I might have chosen Dark Side of the Moon. I still like Pink Floyd, but if I never hear DSOTM or The Wall again it will be too soon.  Animals and WYWH are still okay, but I can't listen to them every day either.
