Wildman - I'm not really mad, I've just been in a very bad mood for 40 years!

Hi, I'm your Sub-editor for 'Jurassic 5' and the version I'm working on is at A2061776

First, I'd like to say how much I enjoyed this entry - I don't know the music, (I'm an old f**t who's stuck back in the 60's), but this almost tempts me to check it out despite my oft-stated loathing of rapsmiley - laugh.

You've left me with very little to do with this article - only one typo ('pinoeers' did you put this in to give me something to dosmiley - winkeye?)- although you may notice that I've removed the quote marks in the BLOCKQUOTES, (my personal taste would be doublequotes but house rules say singlequotes so I prefer to rely on the indents and italicssmiley - winkeye).

The one change that you might object to is in the first line -
'these are some of the words that have been used to describe....' instead of 'these are some of the words you might use to describe....'
What do you think?

Well, thanks very much, I'm really pleased that you liked it!smiley - ok

As for that first line, "these are some of the words that have been used to describe": the only person to have used those words of Jurassic 5 is me, as far as I know.

I suppose since I have *just* used them at the beginning of the sentence, it is technically true that they "have been used", in a sort of recursive way....

I don't mind really.

Greatsmiley - biggrin, and if they're half as good as you make them sound, I'm sure that these and similar words have been used by many!

I'll get the entry sent back up the line and it's just a case of waiting for a spot on the front pagesmiley - ok.
