Sitting here, working, listening to R.E.M.'s album Green. I remember picking up the cassette from a secondhand music shop for like $2 or something.
Like everything in my life, I picked it up because I spotted a reference to it in the margins of Hewlitt & Martin's Tank Girl (Dark Horse, original printing). I was nuts over that book. If Hewlitt was listening to it, I'd be happy to take a chance.
Comics are, and always will be, a fun way to share things you like.
@Inkskratch I remember a listening party with my college housemates when that came out. The question was whether they had sold out by signing with Warner Bros.
It's really the last album of theirs I listened to. Not because I didn't like it, just that I had moved on. I still listen to their earlier stuff.
