For the folks in the UK - I assumed Cliff Notes was global based on how widespread it is in the US - ugh, sorry 'bout that.
Cliff Notes are abridged versions of books. You read them instead of the actual book to pass a test. Comically it's against the advice of the manufacturer - Cliff Notes suggests you should read the actual book.
For something distinctly UK.. (but not an ME) ..there's another thread where we're talking about a Bowie ME, in that thread I mention that there's only 2 bands left that I wish I could see - one being The Exploited, that was just two days ago.
Last night the wife comes home and says "Guess who's coming to town?! Exploited!". We immediately bought tickets.. I can't believe it - I get to see The Exploited and it's been a dream since I was a young teen (was a little rougher in my youth). I never thought I'd get to - ever. We got to see GBH, and now we get to see The Exploited. My mind is still blown. The Exploited is the real grit - the real deal - the measuring stick for all other punk bands. I f#@king love it.. So blessed.
Talk about synchronicity though huh?
I'm also a big Smiths fan - and I've always wanted to see them as The Smiths (seen Morrissey several times). I play and sing several Smiths songs, Marr and I are similar in the way we walk around chords so it's a little easier for me. To me, Morrissey is a lyrical genius, and Marr is a master at complex subtlety. Maybe now that I've said it here it'll happen!
