besides "a/s/l?", contained in an unprovoked im pop-up box, this has to be THE singular most irritating question on the face of the earth. in my mind, anyone who can answer this in the desired one or two words MUST be dead from the neck up and/or living under a rock in the desert someplace.

so now i give you a by-no-means-comprehensive semi-canonical list of musicians/songwriters/artists that DO NOT SUCK.

why did i make this list, you ask? well, i did it for several reasons, mainly to show you all...a)i do NOT, in fact, hate EVERYTHING. b)what i do when i am really, really, really bored out of my skull. c)the rumours circulation about my having multiple personalities are all 100% true and they ALL had a hand in compiling this list. so...without further ado, here, in alphabetical order (yes siree bob, i was VERY bored) are some of the contributors to the ever-growing soundtrack of my life.
