Any love for him here?
I can't help thinking that he's an insufferable twat.
to a bull..
Please explain your distaste for him.
(it's really really testing me not to hurl expletives at you already)
I really don't know why. It's just that every time I see or hear him I think "cunt" and have a sudden urge to stab a kitten.
It's totally illogical. I think I need help.
For he is overwhelmingly cool.
is a dangerous thing.
i preferred him when he was a heroin addict misanthrope negativist. Now he's just a golf jumper
you are incorrect
about the subjective.
Nevertheless, I respect your conviction.
I take it all back.
your opinion is completely invalid.
hates me now.
I promise to try harder to like him.
I actually just listened to the version of Henry Lee with him and PJ Harvey and it's not too shabby.
how could you NOT like him?
1. he's obviously got The Cool. Watch a video on youtube, see a picture, LISTEN TO A SONG. it's pretty much immediately apparent that he's cool whether he's being a bad muthafucka like in stagger lee or a poet like into my arms
2. Brilliant songwriting. He's proved that he can write brilliant songs and make them interesting too, though that could be down to blixa or wallen ellis, but who knows.
3. Lyrics. He's one of the best lyricists ever, i'd say. It would be pretty gay to dig out some of his best ones but they're all there, in every song.
4. AND MORE
