Re: Forum user blogs

I don't have a blog up and running yet, but I talk about music and play whatever I want on my internet radio show. Starting up a tumblr for it thought. But come check the show out - www.facebook.com/NoiseFloorRadio - we have old episodes up for listen if you want to look through the page a bit.

Re: Frank Turner and British Literary Traditions (help me)

Even better, realized it was a reference to Eliot, who was referencing Augustine. So many Eliot references all scattered about. So many complex Eliot references.

Re: Frank Turner and British Literary Traditions (help me)

Great help, using all of that! You guys are the best. I also just noticed that in Sea Legs, he says "oh darling, thou pluckest me out," and I'm thinking that's a reference to this part of the confessions of St. Augustine: Thou pluckest me out, O Lord, Thou pluckest me out; because Thy loving-kindnes...

Re: Frank Turner and British Literary Traditions (help me)

Thanks for all the help while I slept! Davek and Pete, you guys are wonderful. Sunshine State was the other one I had in mind about England's dreariness, since he's taking that and playing with the trope. I can't really make this overly focused on any one album because I have to fit it into the scop...

Re: Frank Turner and British Literary Traditions (help me)

I've been going through the lyrics and re-listening to everything to see what comes out with more importance emphasis. (Or something like that, I'm re-listening to everything and calling it homework.) And yeah, this is for a literature course. And that's a genius idea; I bet there is a lot of good s...

Re: Frank Turner and British Literary Traditions (help me)

He portrays a million different things about England. It comes up in Once We Were Anarchists (and I think something else but I'm blanking) and it's an easy theme to connect to other works. But that was just a thought off the top of my head, not something really too important. I know there is more fo...

Roger Waters playing The Wall @ Fenway Park was the most mindblowing experience possible.

Frank Turner and British Literary Traditions (help me)

I'm writing a paper on Frank Turner and how his lyrics and style builds on British lit traditions. Like how he references Shakespeare and Eliot and Arthurian legend, the raining dreary feel of England, and the rejection of God. Those are 3 of the ones I'm building off of right now, but I'm wondering...
