Thanks for the link. You're such a lucky bastard. There are just too many national trust properties to visit it seems ... I had the pleasure of playing the piano in many historic homes in England. And the gardens and landscaping. TOAC stated that England reminded him of New England in the USA. Nothing could be further from the truth. I'll never forget my first visit to Chatsworth ...

What a fucking tame place the UK is.
Middle class UK, that is.
When it comes to everyday life, yeah, it's like New England. Of course the stately homes and the castles are extraordinary, but you typically don't see those every day.
We could all sit outside on banana lounges discussing the best way to rebuild a 4WD transmission and agree, through shared stories of conquests supporting our assertions, that there is no basis to the proposition that those least assured of their persuasions are the first to condemn others for theirs.
Anna, is it necessary to misquote me? I thoroughly enjoyed Chatsworth and Haddon Hall ... don't add shit to my post that didn't happen.
it's adam sandlar!!!???
Weird thing about The Modern Lovers is that the British 'punk' scene (shorthand, sorry) really took to them in a big way. 'Roadrunner' was a bit of an anthem and then if you could get hold of some their stuff on an LP, the really dark poetic stuff was very...what we were about then (if that makes any sense?)
