Dude's gone underground. Only way to get messages to him is by yeti, which are notoriously difficult to nail down. Ya gotta bribe the yeti with whiskey and a coupla hot ladies, then maybe he'll bring a message to Sven for ya.

Hmm, good question. I can only speak for myself, but the ones I can recommend without hesitation are Bandwagonesque, Grand Prix, and Songs From Norther Britain. Howdy is good but not as good; I haven't heard all of Thirteen, but liked what I heard. I can't speak intelligently on the rest, but the fi...

I'm so cynical right now... I used to be a "get out the vote" kind of guy until yesterday; now I have a new motto: STUPID PEOPLE SHOULDN'T VOTE!! If the ones who previously didn't vote are the same fucktards who elected the Tea Party knuckleheads, I really wish they had stayed home. And no, the Demo...
