That slugs and snails are hermaphroditic, have both their genitalia AND anus on the right side of their heads (therefore pooping on their own heads), and often chew off their mates' or their own penises after mating.

Why do I know this? Because on our evening walks down at the beach after heavy rains (such as the past two days), the snails come out of the dune grasses and are all over the trail. Hundreds, if not thousands of them. It takes attention to not crunch them underfoot. And I got curious as to their anatomy and predators and my Google finger is in good shape. And now I doubt I can enjoy my dinner or sleep well. And now you know why I never get anything done.

How to turn that annoying thing off so I don't have to be annoyed by it anymore unless I turn it back on, which would be annoying.

It wasn't that bad. Its a small storage area that I am finishing in my attic and there were only two mostly full sheets to fasten to the ceiling. I had the help of my wife to lift and position, and I had nailed a 5/4 furring strip on one end the room to supprt one end of the sheet. I had also made T support to help prop it up once we had the sheet in position. Still, these muscles are usually on vacation.

 
Cool. Not so bad, just two sheets. Still a workout...

Yeow! Brutal. If you have much more to do, you should rent one of those drywall hanger thingys. It'll hold the drywall up against the ceiling so you can screw it in. Your back will thank you.

I learned awhile back that sheetrocking is usually not worth doing yourself. A decent crew can do a whole house in one day, taped and floated.

Revolver is indeed a classic but it doesn't meet my "skip track" test.  There are one or two songs on Revolver that make me press "next" ("For No One," to give an example).  The same with the White Album.  Rubber Soul has nothing like that.  I can listen to it from beginning to end, or on shuffle, without skipping and it has the same effect.  And I can listen to it over and over again.

I'm having the same experience with Quadrophenia, although it works much better in order from beginning to end.  While Tommy is a great achievement and definitely ambitious, and Who's Next is a great collection of songs, Quadrophenia sounds like the entire band is at their peak.  Moon never sounded bettter, and Townsend makes me want to pick up a guitar (although lack of playing ability makes me put it down immediately :) ).  Definitely inspiring.

Wow!  I bought Quadrophenia the day it hit the stores in late 73 and have listened to it a billion times.  For me, a hardcore Who fan, it eclipsed Tommy in the end.  Brilliant indeed!  What fun for you to be discovering it and enjoying it now....proof that it is a timeless piece of art.

Interesting that your favorite albums have been Rubber Soul and The White Album.  My favorite has always been Revolver, although Rubber Soul has been a close second.  I've always considered them a set, with Rubber Soul hinting of the amazing changes to come in Revolver.

Check out www.quadrophenia.net
