Listening to The Ramones’ End of the Century. This was supposed to be their sell out album, because it wasn’t as raw and it was produced by Phil Spector, but I think it’s fun. I think they were just an exciting wonderful band. They certainly had emotional intelligence, but selling out generally connotates an original intellectual intelligence given away that the very cool Ramones didn’t possess.
Then again, Elvis Presley sold out, so what am I talking about?
I guess the difference is I like the End of the Century songs and don’t like Love Me Tender too much. So like everything, it winds up purely personal. John Lennon said, opinions are like assholes everybody has one.
Bone white sky today and a little cold. Nice briskness to the air and when the skies not colored everything looks sharper through my eyes.
