see the connection?

the choices listed all have a number in them except for choice one, three, four and five. but then again that wouldnt be one hundred percent fair considering 'OP8' is just another way of spelling 'opiate'.

Dave Matthews Band (Love all his stuff except for the "everyday" album...great amazing live show too)
The White Stripes (Just great rock and roll)
Rufus Wainright (Hope he gets back to recording soon)
Fiona Apple (can't wait for her new album)
Elliott Smith (I listen to him all the time)
Jon Brion (I consider him an artist damn it)
Aimee Mann (Lost in Space is AMAZING)
Radiohead (Self-explanatory)
Steely Dan (Never has there been a bad album)
Crosby Stills and Nash {and young} (Their harmonies and guitar playing makes me jealous)
Joni Mitchell (Amazing poetry which the label of "lyrics" over some of the greatest songwriting I have ever heard..."Hejira" is a perfect example)
The Roots (Rap I actually enjoy)

(in no particular order)...

the strokes
elliott smith

obviously an ALL TIME list would be much more difficult and include beatles, stones, elvis costello, etc.  but the five artists i am currently most excited about their works are the above.

""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

-White Stripes "Elephant"- i thought they could not get any better then White Blood Cells. Proved me the fuck wrong. "I Just Don't Know What to Do With Myself" and "Keep Her in you Pocket" are favorites

-The Cure "Acoustic Hits"- This is the bonus disc on the greatest hits. It is ten times better then the normal hits disc.

-Tom Waits "Closing Time"- i get the feeling nobody listens to Tom anymore

-Sigur Ros "()"- amazing. It sucks you in. Just don't listen to it while you drive. Trust me. You will crash

-and misc. stuff from PJ Harvey, Primal Scream, Iggy Pop, Bowie, Icarus Line, Taking Back Sunday, Talking Heads, Joy Division, Velvet Underground, much more

How do you ask for "()" at the record store?

Well, Mr. Guff, I think their target audience are not the lazy, skilless people that can't be bothered to look for the damn CD themselves, instead of pestering the HMVers that have other things to do, like monitoring the DVD section for all you DVD-theft schemers on the Xixax.com board.

Sexterrossa was a member at the PTanderson board. I think what Pubrick was implying was that he is an older, wiser version of you, who had the tendency to ignore search functions, hence the relation question. It also might be in reference to posting a lot, something I got a lot of flack for too. Dont worry about it, we will let Pubrick sort this out though.

Oh, ok....well, it's not as bad as I thought.

I have been posting too much, haven't I? I don't think I've ever spent this much time on a message board. During the summer I'll post a lot less. Fuck, I have no fucking idea why I've been posting so fucking much and I didn't even notice it.

I really try not to be an asshole too, I realize I should have used a search engine. I wasn't trying to be cute or anything or piss Pubrick or anybody else off. I don't try to piss people off. I'm just not very good with the internet all the time. Did sexterrossa try to piss people off with questions? Cause I'm not one of those people I don't think.

has it been debated whether me and this guy are the same person yet?
