    Kinda wild that he just rocked that show last Saturday. 40+ years after he rocked out in Dodger stadium. What a life.

    Just amazing. I always find it hard to imagine what it looked and felt like without color.

    Can anyone explain why the video of the time sped everything up and made it jumpy?

    Ill Communication and Hello Nasty were right in my early teens so those stand out for me. As far as most listened to it would be hands down Hello Nasty.

    Are ya'll listing the 2nd best album, and license to ill was taken out as obvious?

    Yeah I should have prefaced that question with License To Ill doesn't count as favorite album -- best we all know how much of a classic it is.

    I guess for me I liked Paul's Boutique because of all the sampling they did. Check Your Head was good, but I thought they experimented too much with playing their own instruments. Ill Communication has some great stuff.

    I’m foggy on the details but I think the US and the Brits ended up executing any German captured with a sawtooth knife and other brutal trench knives.

    This is kind of interesting and honestly I'm not sure what to make of it. It seems the event happened, and the colorized version is definitely enhanced, but the debate seems to stem over whether the sailors painted an outline of the plane over the dent or whether it occurred naturally.

    https://skeptics.stackexchange.com/...result-of-a-kamikaze-attack-on-a-ship-in-wwii

    On 26 July 1945 her Task Force was attacked by two attack bombers acting as "Kamikaze" suicide weapons. One made an imprint on the side of the HMS Sussex, from which it could be identified as a Mitsubishi Ki-51 "Sonia".

    Devil in the White City is a fantastic novel about HH Holmes and the Chicago World Fair. Last Podcast on the Left also did a really good series about him.

    I think Leonardo Dicaprio is supposed to play him in the screen adaptation of Devil in the White City, although it's been in discussions since 2016 and they still haven't started filming.

    There also used to be a kinda cheesy documentary on Netflix. Don't know if it's still on there.
