And by "latter ear" I of course meant "latter era". As far as I know, MJ's ears are the only original part of him remaining.

You were probably thinking about an ear of corn. In fact, according to this website, the term "comes from the Gothic word for 'husk of corn' which was ahs".

xp ian: the goth corn is the one on the far right, right next to the reggae corn.

Automatic thread bump. This poll is closing tomorrow.

Automatic thread bump. This poll's results are now in.

Yawn.

Thank goodness.

Pathetic.

according to the lovers of polls, this settles the question

The question being: Are ILM poll-takers tasteless morons? The answer: Most certainly.

Alex in NYC, Thursday, 30 April 2009 02:14 (ten years ago) link

We tasteless morons also like to dance.

(I'm particularly impatient with Nick Cave after watching his performance in the Leonard Cohen "I'm Your Man" thing: he needed a wet mop in his face)

the fact that this wasn't 5 to 1 sorta disappoints me.

iatee, Thursday, 30 April 2009 02:37 (ten years ago) link

I imagine if mj didn't have 'character issues' people realllly wouldn't have any excuse

iatee, Thursday, 30 April 2009 02:38 (ten years ago) link

i kinda want to do a jackson vs killing joke now, just to see AINYC's reaction to the results.

i'm not gonna lie to you, i have trouble sitting

Hooray!

Sacco, Vanzetti, Passantino... (Tom D.), Thursday, 30 April 2009 09:38 (ten years ago) link

how different would this exercise be if Quincy Jones had produced Nick Cave?

peepee, Thursday, 30 April 2009 12:00 (ten years ago) link

And Blixa Bargeld had played guitar for Jacko?

Sacco, Vanzetti, Passantino... (Tom D.), Thursday, 30 April 2009 12:07 (ten years ago) link

Considering the artist's respective sales, I reckon the Goth vote held up pretty well.

Preferred Cave well before MJ's 'character issues' started to show, don't need an excuse. Up for Cave's Quincy Jackson album though. Blixa/MJ, not so much.

Soukesian, Thursday, 30 April 2009 15:54 (ten years ago) link

They played this one at the goth club some weeks back and I was like "man, these people know how to choose a particularly stellar all-time-best Nick Cave song". You folks who like Tom Waits, I want you to look me in the eye and tell me why you don't like this.

So when is there going to be a Crime and The City Solution vs. Nick Cave poll?

xhuxk, Sunday, 3 May 2009 04:06 (ten years ago) link

Aww...actually I don't know if I even owned a Crime & The City Solution record. I did own one of those ex-Bad Seeds records, but I don't think it was them.

Smart, Long, Lifephones (Bimble), Sunday, 3 May 2009 04:23 (ten years ago) link

Is Alex in NYC 14?

I don't like Crime and the City Solution as much as Bad Seeds, but These Immortal Souls are on-par.

Reverse the digits.

Michael Jackson sucks and, therefore, you suck for liking him.

Alex in NYC, Sunday, 3 May 2009 13:08 (ten years ago) link

nine years pass...

I wasn't wrong.

Alex in NYC, Thursday, 10 January 2019 22:11 (eleven months ago) link

what would be more enjoyable? Cave covering 'Jam' or Jackson covering 'No Pussy Blues'?
