Pandora introduced me to them quite a while ago, and I've liked some of the songs it's fed me better than others. Off Chrome fer instance, I got tired of "Strange Fruit" really quickly, but I could listen to "Nude" all day.

Mixmaster Shecky wrote:... "Undercover of the Night", saying something like "You fucks should've given up after your disco album."
This part at least, whether Ms. Hynde actually said it or not, is indisputable fact.

Chris, do you think that maybe when you post in heated political threads like that, that perhaps you stick out a little more and that the only reason the changes to the php code seem to happen at about the same time are that those are the times that Jake notices whatever new method you're using to d...

Don't know if it'll qualify as "best" but my Townes Van Zandt Legend album has a duet on "If I Needed You". There's also a non-duet version on the same disc, so watch it.

My system is getting close to 10 years old, but was nice for me when I had just started working out of college. It's nothing really awesome, but I like it. I've got what was one of the better Sony receivers at the time, along with a 5-disc carousel that I got in while in college, hooked up to a bett...

I only have a couple LPs, but I'm not in any rush to get rid of those either - one of them is I Just Can't Stop It , which I go...

I'll concede that Freddie isn't quite as dangerous as some of the singers nominated. Bare-knuckle street fight (back in the day, I mean) and my money's on Iggy. But discounting him because he's "too good" is kind of ludicrous. I don't think so. Like I said earlier, he sings too pretty and glam for ...
