Be not afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them.”
— William Shakespeare (via his play “Twelfth Night”), who on this day in 1564 is believed to have been born in the English parish of Stratford-upon-Avon. Happy 450th Birthday, Bard of Avon! (via nypl)
serenadeyoursilence asked me to join the discussion about Playing The Angel. So how could I say no to such a flattering question? :D
PTA was the album that brought me back to dM (not that I ever had been away from them but SOFAD left me…
This thread was an absolute pleasure - danke, sehr gut to hear what you all think (sorry for the bad German, couldn’t resist as ironically I think all commenters were German…:)).
I think there must be some club of people who “came back” to DM because of PTA - sounds like you & I both did - which fascinates me. It’s such a bold statement, kind of take-no-prisoners, with some real commercial “classic-Mode” moments, it’s no wonder it’s an album that got some people caring again :)
It’s such fun missing out on every DM era you love, either by not existing (MFTM), being a rather ignorant three-year-old (Ultra), or turning eleven and deciding that at this point you’re too smitten with Marilyn Manson to care about anything else (PTA). /grumbles
Well where’s the goddamn Delorean when we really need it??
horny pansexual problems
Don’t you hate it when you’re trying to get a bunch of stuff done but all you can think about is boobies/vaginas/penises/man butts/lady butts/all kinds of butts
you could always trade with me and try being asexual :3
honestly I wish I knew what it was like to find people attractive like that?
I’d be kind of curious to see what it would be like to be asexual. Hahaha we should swap sexualities freaky Friday style
I would watch that movie.
Ohhh crazy-anka….2600 miles??? Yeah, I would say that would prevent casual roadtrips to go see bands…:///

Am so sorry - meant what I said, as long as we’re all causing no one harm no one should cause harm to us. Don’t let it get to you!! :)))
Two ’80s synthpop pioneers are teaming up for a one-off DJ night in NYC. Vince Clark (Depeche Mode, Yazoo, Erasure) and Mute Records founder Daniel Miller (who also put out music as The Normal and Silicon Teens) will be spinning at Music Hall of Williamsburg on July 3… which also happens to be Vince’s birthday. (He’ll be 54.) Tickets for this show go on sale Friday (4/25) with an AmEx presale beginning Wednesday (4/23) at noon.
Hmmm…what an EXCELLENT excuse to visit my sis in NYC…;D
In Barcelona during our last tour a little girl knocked on my door and asked if she could use the bathroom. I thought to myself ‘whats the harm’ she couldn’t have been more than 10 years old. I let her in, 15 minutes later and shes still in the bathroom so I knocked on the door to see if she was alright and there she was in a corner sniffing my dirty socks!”
