Nail on the head as usual Caitlin.

Remember when I nearly got banned for calling out an elitist? Not that my methods were particularly just, but... :lol:

Nail on the head indeed and I wonder if he ever took up on his threat to make a Blur forum for those who had been fans since 1990. Presumably they don't talk about Blur as much as the triviality of their 'honour'.

Dear oh dear I used the word "permaps" (dumb doesn't-make-sense-here-in-joke way of saying 'perhaps', in this instance in a slightly mocking way to send up the discussion sorry) outside of Facebook. I really need to stop coming here after I've had a few.

I love most of Blur's catalog to various degrees. Most songs other fans call bad I can still find things to like in them.

Some of us are big fans but are poor. :D

Good point. As one who has a large collection, that never occurred to me.

I think also a tangible collection of stuff is probably more important to those of us over say 25, in the days of MP3s (regardless of source) i'm not so sure a physical collection is really important a barometer

Oh Caitlin if you want to see my sceptre, or my crown for being the best just ask. All this passive-aggressiveness just makes you look incredibly bitter about my king of the Blur fans title.

You can only be the biggest fan if you own both the Wassailing Song and Don't Bomb 7"s and have seen B-Roads!! or perhaps this is just my wishlist... :P
