If I were the type to end a quote with "Discuss" I would do so here

Anglophilia in the States was once the province of those willing to take the time and effort to look outside their immediate surroundings, and with that came the attendant feelings of acting or thinking differently from one's peers that often fuels cultural choices, especially in indie circles. Nowadays, the UK feels and acts a hell of a lot more like, well, the U.S., and the internet has made the practice of looking in on a band from Britain the same as checking out one from Brooklyn.
--Pitchfork review of "Midlife" (Blur compilation)

blur was an awesome band

i'm a bit of an anglophile, perhaps

is the above quote stupid, or is there something to it?
