    When Thom Yorke sings "Such a pretty house / And such a pretty garden," he's just singing about having a lawn full of grass? Not a vegetable garden or a flower garden?

    I'd imagine that flowers are probably involved in elevating his garden to its state of incredible prettiness, but he's referring to the whole structure, yes

    He might not make it but surprisingly he is only 55 years old and of course is receiving the best possible healthcare at this moment. I don't know what the national response to his passing would be like in Britain but there would be a short-term increase in popularity and support for the current Tory government and he would just be replaced by Dominic Raab. Nothing about the government or its policies would change whatsoever.

    I mean, go ahead and root for his death if you want but it accomplishes nothing other than satisfying some weird spite. The way to defang the power of an increasingly brutal capitalist class is not to celebrate when individual representatives of their vested political power happen to pass away from a horrible disease that is currently killing thousands of people each day throughout the world, but whatever floats your boats!

    Not my neg but I guess I’m fine with fulfilling my sick spite if that means evil people die.

    Do you know any "railfans"?

    Like, before (and after?) the movie book Trainspotting , this was a thing that people got into? (has nothing to do with drugs, etc.)

    We have them in the US too but I believe the British equivalent of is kind of a thing in itself if you know what I'm saying.

    Try to see every train engine in the country? Maybe I'm misunderstanding it

    I don't know anything about it, are you aware of this or am I just hallucinating most of this

    Not encountered the term 'railfan'. Aware of trainspotters but I've never heard an actual anecdote about them and definitely never knowingly seen one in the flesh. Seems like a pretty boring hobby.

    Okay, sounds like it's still every bit the niche hobby that it is here.

    I'm just curious how this ever came to be, I mean we're not just talking about the UK at large but the 2003 UK Belle & Sebastian fanbase here. I don't mean to stereotype but I think there were still a lot of walls up between sports and "indie culture" at the time (to say nothing of American sports) that don't really exist anymore or at least not in the same impermeable way as they used to.

    The song was not really about Mike Piazza but I mean he's there in the title and it's surely the most provocative and memorable lyric here so I'm just wondering how people reacted to it.

    Haven't heard of Mike Piazza, wasn't aware the song had anything to do with sports, don't think that division ever existed here.

    Sorry that I don't have more to say about it

    No, that actually says a lot.
