And they’d be right.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

What do you know, gashy, you couldn't even muster up the enthusiasm to vote for your own list!

With good reason, did you see it?

Starting a list with Genesis was just asking for trouble.

I hope it gets drawn against my all-Minutemen list.
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

I don't mind that one so much. It was the King Krule and Sacharinne Trust tracks which put me off.

I guess I could choose a more BCB friendly list each year, but I like to experiment with stuff I like and design it as a good roadtrip playlist. But there are two constants in voting against my lists

Martha will vote against the Beastie Boys or any hip hop. I could put Sisters of Mercy in there sometime, but I'd die and go to goth hell before that.

Penk's dismissal of melodic and well crafted jangle-pop. I thought about putting the Archie Bronson Outfit in my list, but I'd rather picture him squirming in Sweden through 30 seconds of the Red Button before he gives up on it than do that.

By "taking chances" do you mean picking a Springsteen b-side, rather than an a-side?
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

In this year's comp. it would be a John Cougar Mellencamp b-side.

She's not the only one! For the inclusion of that "act" results in an immediate vote against a list from me.

Beastie Boys are my preferred equivalent of the cyanide false tooth capsule in the Cup. Instant death!
