it's a soft reboot, which is likely what this labyrinth movie will be too.

I don't understand all the end of year list snubs. Overall I prefer this album over DC, although both are excellent.

Like any sensible person he would justifiably loathe it like the morally perverse travesty that it is.

You are conflating religion with ethnicity. While it can potentially cultivate feelings of cultural belonging, religion is first and foremost ideology, and should as such not be beyond challenge or discussion. I see no reason why part of that challenge can't happen in the form of irreverent cultural expression, like popular music's adoption of religious signifiers, which has already happened with western religion by anyone from Madonna to Black Sabbath. Part of treating other cultures with respect is to treat them like actual human beings, not like children that needs to be coddled and protected from having their feelings or sensibilities hurt. By resisting this kind of emancipation, you're arguably perpetuating a racist, condescending worldview.

What if this deep seated insecurity about bananas is really a result of the childhood trauma that stems from being called Joanna Banana?

Well, somebody had to hit the guy, if photographic evidence exists and a police report got filed. That someone would presumably have to be, a) Danzig, b) Security or c) other concertgoers, all of which Danzig himself would be responsible for in varying degrees, considering he was encouraging violence against the guy with his break his neck comment. Alternatively, it would have to be d) the guy did it to himself, which seems far less likely than the former options, especially considering Danzig''s violent reputation and the average testosterone level of concert security.

I drove 18 hours in 2 days to see her play back in 2010, because that's what I had to do to see her play. I bought Have One On Me on vinyl even though I already owned it on CD. However, I'm likely gonna stream her new album, and probably illegally download it too, because I'm back in school and strapped for cash. I'll still have no problems sleeping at night (especially after having witnessed the opulent majesty of the palace she calls home, in the previous thread).

What will be the next obsession for the novelty chasing retro format crowd? Gramophone records? Phonograph cylinders? Live minstrel interpretations? History truly is cyclical.
