    • I must say I find it quite calming with MR banned for 3 months. He is a good guy but he’s too loud and can go overboard with comments and language a lot of the time.

        Sales are really all about who has the most widespread general appeal. It doesn't mean who is best or worst. We have some amazing artists who are massive sellers (like MJ, Beatles, U2, Madonna, Pink Floyd, etc...) but the quality of the music doesn't have anything to do with whether the album sold 25 million or 2 million worldwide IMO.

        But ultimately quality is subjective. One man's Revolver is another man's Friday.

          I am finishing season 1. On episode 2, season 2 now.
          Season 1 was much better in my opinion.

            yeah cuz arguing about 80's / 90's "divas" is any better.
            well then you would LOVE him if you hate the diva talk. I saw him argue with a poster about whether a 1966 Rolling Stones album was more successful in the long run than a 1980 album of theirs that sold more copies because the 1966 album has two "classic" songs on it that do much better in digital/streams than anything off said 1980 record.

                    Madonna? Bruce Springsteen? (his biggest hits came in his 30's) Michael Jackson? Shania Twain? (she was 30 when she had her breakout album) Barbra? (most of her biggest selling albums came after age 30). Billy Joel?

                    • God is your only relative.
                      You are the spirit soul, not the body.
                      The human body is the only body in which you can perform karma, or consequential actions.
                      Thus, only in this human body can you attain everlasting bliss, peace, knowledge, and eternal life (what modern science call 'survival of the fittest'/no one wants to die).
                      God is synonymous with all those things viz. Bliss, Knowledge, and Eternity.
                      Thus, the human life must be utilized only to attain God.
                      God is attained only when God bestows His Grace, because He is divine and infinite, and we are tiny and conditioned by material energy.
                      God, being causelessly graceful, is always showering His grace on the suffering souls.
                      To be able to receive this Grace, however, the mind must be 100% pure.
                      However, the individual soul, having sinned (90% of the time) since eternity, cannot receive this divine grace properly. For that, he must undertake spiritual discipline.
                      Spiritual discipline involves loving God affectionately as your Mother, Father, Son, Friend, and Master, etc.
                      Intense favorable emotional attachment to God is the fruit of all spiritual practice.
                      It must be coupled with truthfulness, humility, forbearance, forgiveness, and love for all as your spiritual brethren (which solves the problem of gay, straight, transgender, black, white, red, woman, child rights you people keep going on and on about).

                      Please don't ban me.
                      Thank you.

                        I also know of others that use words like bish etc but the tone that is used can easily be read and differ from MR tone. He seems full of himself and obnoxious. I see others use similar language but you can read and hear their tone.

                        And they all contribute to UKMix. Not exclusive to MR.
                        You don’t have to create a thread to contribute.

                          If it's just females and just studio albums, probably Madonna and Barbra (Barbra only due to sheer frequency of releases) - Celine might have done it also, depending on how many copies of Let's Talk About Love she sold after March 30th 1998.

                          In terms of females overall, Madonna, Celine and Barbra definitely did. I don't think Whitney did (it'd depend on how many copies of The Bodyguard were sold in the first 10 months it was on sale as her 30th birthday would've come in August 1993).

                          Madonna and Celine are the only female artists to have sold more than 60 million albums before they were 30 and more than 60 million after.

                            Sheer frequency? Isnt her peers release more? It's only due to longevity and timeless

                                  But that post is incorrect on so many fronts, and half of it is an attack on science and progress.

                                  But I guess we are in the random thought thread.

                                            Well, where I live, the summers become unbearably humid and overcast and sticky. I'll take cold over it any day. I'm always of the theory that it's easier to warm up when it's cold than it is to cool down when it's hot.

                                            I'd like the summer if it wasn't 95 degrees outside and sticky, muggy and overcast all the time.
