Re: OFFS: The Forsakening

Jesuits aren't exactly world-renowned givers of fucks in the first place. ETA though I don't know about that one. The Catholic ones tend to be quite good relative to public peers and lots of people fake it to get their kids in. Usually you don't even need to fake it, especially with the Catholics. ...

Andrew, did you listen to Gene Clark's No Other ? In case you missed it, 4AD released a new deluxe version of No Other . Instead of the demo versions by Clark on acoustic guitar that were the bonus material on the prior CD (which I enjoyed), there are lots of alternative versions of the songs. Some...

A buncha stuff that Amos says is quotable. After that, Ashford and Drummer have some good stuff, and maybe Miller.

But yeah it's not a Whedon/Sorkin quipfest or anything. And the acting takes a LONG time to settle down (except for Agdashloo who's fucking awesome from the get-go).
