    Don’t be ridiculous, Linton. Fallingwater was the best album of 1935. Next you’ll be saying that The Whom suck.

    wally

    An insult that became popular in the 80’s, meaning an idiot. Scholars of urban slang have long believed this word originated at Woodstock (15-17th Aug’69), when some hippy lost his dog called Wally. He wandered around the site shouting Wally, and before long the crowd started shouting it. After that, wally became a popular chant at music festivals. However, on a recording of a Jimi Hendrix concert on 9th Jan 1969 in Sweden (7 months before Woodstock), someone in the audience shouts wally while Jimi is dedicating a song, prompting him to say “yeah, this song is for wally too”. So, while the word probably did originate at a festival, if has to be another one, not Woodstock.

    “You are a complete wally.”

    Where’s Wally? is the original title of the famous puzzle books. The main character’s name was changed to “Waldo” in Canada, Sweden and the U.S.

    I wonder how long it will be before someone explains to Linton that those are the artists and designers and architects that those musical acts were named in honor of. And how long it will be before Linton completely cognizes that fact.

    I wonder if Linton would think the same about “The Bahaus”.
