Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

I take it that's not Neil Peart on the Walker Bros video? What a drum kit, it must've taken him years to get that rig together.

A takes it, due to picking slightly more interesting choices. Nash and The Breeders are all well and good, but as ever, I'm with Gavrilo Princip when it comes to Franz Ferdinand. That's the 347th time I've used that line, btw.

Btw, Johnny Nash's version of "Stir It Up" just popped up automatically via youtube. What a cover, bloody gorgeous.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

Going B

I quite enjoy that FF pick and, had I been 15 years younger, think I would have enjoyed a number of bands around that time much more. Also dig the Breeders and that Nash tune is something special.

Not that A was poor.... though I honestly don't get the Walker Brothers. Get your hand out of your pocket goddamn it.

I was gonna make the joke that B "could have it so much better", but actually the Franz Ferdinand track is the best of the three choices he's made. Unfortunately for it, all of A's picks are much better too.

Well, I like B. But then, I don't mind Franz Ferdinand, and the Breeders track is always a hard one for me to resist.

Plus, I don't like the JLL.

B.

I'm not a huge fan of the Breeders or Franz Ferdinand but I love both those tracks and I don't understand how anyone can dislike Nash's version of I Can See Clearly Now. But my vote is always the kiss of death in the cup.

I like the first two on A, but find it hard to get excited about the JLL.

I like 'Cannonball', I guess, but I always find myself wishing they'd get to the point. Franz Ferdinand are crap and Nash is pleasant.

Like martha, I usually seem to be in the minority.

I like some Walker Bros. stuff but this one is meh for me.....never got much from Siouxie, and JLL's early fare all sounds alike.

You see, there are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity. Indeed that's what we provide in our own modest, humble, insignificant... oh, fuck it.
