    What is the source of the 'dog sitting in a burning house' 2-frame cartoon meme (as seen on the Trump thread amongst other places)?

    It was pretty good! No band, it's just him with decks and various bits of gear that he uses to tweak/manipulate the sound. I love Sherwood & On-U but find it pretty hard to get my head round their output, it's such a big, sprawling thing. I guess one thing that struck me about his set was that...

    Nice and ongoing terror attacks in W Europe

    Very scary stuff obv. Hoping that all the London people on here are OK.

    Happy Birthday Craner! Tempted to now switch my COTD to something Visage/Associates/Heaven 17-ish in tribute but will stick what I already had lined up which was : A personal fave ever since I heard it about 4 years ago on this hardcore mix by yer man that does the Planet Mu stuff ...

    I think Airbag will always be favourite tune from OK Computer, but yeah, most of the album is pretty good. I feel like the reception of Radiohead did change a bit at some point. Back around the time of The Bends & OK Computer the meme always seemed to be how 'miserable' and 'depressing' they...

    Throwing in a big, blatant chunk of red meat for Luka (though he'll probably say it comes after Hype went shit anyway):

    The synth tones at the start of White Car In Germany - when a record starts like that you know it's going to be great.

    With thanks to Leo & craner : But really I could have chosen just about anything from Fourth Drawer Down. What an extraordinary album! It's funny, every time I think I've bottomed out on amazing discoveries from the late 70s-early 80s period and all that's left is barrel-scrapings, up pops...

    Anyhow, this is my COTD : Probably the only new find from the ILX best of 2016 polls which really excited me, which is a shame because I ended up get unexpectedly engaged by their 2015 best-ofs, especially the albums.

    Yeah this is fair - I probably shouldn't have said 'dated' because that's always taken as pejorative. I actually like most of the other groups that you mention (although with some of them I've only ever really skimmed the big hits) - I suppose all I would say is that a lot of them sound...

    As an out-of-touch parent trying to show an interest might say, "that's nice, is it new"?

    I'm a huge fan of 'life comes at you fast'. Only found out recently that (but of course!) it originates from an insurance ad campaign: http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/life-comes-at-you-fast First the meerkat now this, the insurance industry get met every time.

    Keeping the RIUASA-canon vibes going from yesterday's pick (& k-punk canon too obv.) : The whole of the Tin Drum album is just fantastic really. I think when I first got it I expected something very dated/of-its-time in the way that a lot of stuff in that zone of early 80s British...

    ^ Rah that's pretty nice. The vocals took me by surprise.

    Trump

    (Spent ages trying to write a serious post addressing roughly those issues, but then decided I'd rather just troll a bit. Felt quite good if I'm being honest).

    Trump

    Also why is it only ever intelligent conservatives that we're supposed to read? If the idea is to better understand the positions that are out there, surely you could learn just as much from reading really stupid conservatives?
