Truly imaginative worlds

I'm not sure if this is too castle-y for the criteria, but I have often thought the best part of the movie Dune was the sets and the costumes. I remember the floating light bars and the flying, rotting head of House Harkonan (sp?) as impressively original. Other examples of technology were often far removed from the typical shiny silver cliche as well.

hey, don't feel bad! These quotes I picked off my mp3 (legal, of course...hehehe) list last evening. All good songs, of course, but they may be only that way in MY opinion. I'll come up with some more weird ones here shortly...

Underrated 90s albums

Thank you for listing R.E.M.'s "Monster". I saw in the latest Maxim (a friend's! a friend's!) that Monster is on list of something like "worst albums ever". Personally I think it is one of their most atmospheric and one of their best. "Strange Currencies" is a great love song, and I like the message of "Tongue" and "Let Me In". I'm afraid I don't know many of the others on this list...looks like I need to get crackin' on some tunes...

"I took a moment from my day and wrapped it up in things you'd say, and mailed it off to your address, you'll get it pretty soon I guess...you won't find moments in a box and someone else will set your clocks...."

"Don't you go, it makes no sense, and all these talkin' supermen just take away the time, just to get it away, ah, ain't it just like the rain..."

"I'm so alone tonight, my bed feels larger than when I was small, lost in memories, lost in all the sheets and old pillows, so alone tonight, miss you more than I will yet you know, miss the outline of your back, miss you breathing down my neck..."

I would love to see a new list; I'm afraid that in a surprisingly short amount of time a list like this gets too long to read properly. I'll cook up some new quotes if the new list is go!

dang, here's another: a good canadien band (eh?):
"I went back to bed this morning / and as I'm pulling down the blind / yeah the sky was dull and hypothetical, and fallin' one cloud at a time..."

here's one from an artist not on this list (I think!)...pretty popular nonetheless:
"Tell you the truth I perfer the worst of you /
Too bad you had to have a better half..."
