Sorry, nothing to do with this, but it’s forever going to be stuck at fifty million records now isn’t it? I mean obviously they’re not going to shift millions more by this stage, but I wonder what the actual figure is. It’s always trotted out as fifty million in these little summaries.

Anyone attending this?
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|

Did anyone go to this? I’d be interested to know what they talked about and what nuggets of Neil wisdom were shared...

Apparently it wasgeneral questions, highlights were:

He referred to Ed Sheehan as “a busker”

He said they were working on a song about populism called “Give Stupidity a Chance”

He said that what people referred to as “political correctness” he actually considered to be just good manners

Hmm, interesting strategy to win people over to your point of view - call the voters stupid. Wasn't a blinding success for Hilary Clinton, but always worth another go. That's the spirit!

In all fairness she did win more votes than him, unfortunately the voters don’t choose the American president.

However, Trump is proud of being stupid and I’m sure his supporters are too. :twisted:

I like the song title, I am all for anything thats tantalizing sounding that has a bit of drama attached to it even if its at Trumps expense. I'm with stupid was done well.
but Trump isnt stupid. you couldnt make that case.its just something people say.he got to where he is by being smarter than you.so you can say things like he is stupid, but its just fantasy. its not reality.
anyways for some reason when I heard the title I thought of "ego music". i hope the music is at least worthy of the title.

Hmm... not sure about that title. A bit crass. And sounds too much like I'm with stupid. How about something like Idiocracy? You can use it boys I don't mind.

Agree, sounds like an ABBA thing. Hopefully it's a working title. But "Chance" would be a good title album.

Yeah, I was thinking “The Wisdom of the Crowd” would have been a good title.

“He said that what people referred to as “political correctness” he actually considered to be just good manners”.

Well, indeed. And I’m pleased to hear that the Google salad emoji has this week been redesigned to avoid offending vegans: https://mashable.com/2018/06/07/google-salad-emoji/
I’m all for good manners. Good manners are excellent. Taking egg out of a salad emoji to avoid offending vegans - that’s something else entirely. That’s scary.
