commented on It's Over and Done, I Deleted All the Fugazi Off'a My iTunes™
I fell in love with Fugazi in 1993 when I bought "In on the Kill Taker" with my paper route money. I still listen to and love all of their albums (well, except maybe non-Long Division Steady Diet of Nothing) on itunes. So, yeah, sorry, you're wrong.

Odo is a fascist, Ferengi are boring, Worf is all talk, Sisko will forever be compared to Kirk and Picard (and lose), O'Brien is an Irish stereotype. But Bajoran women are hawt in their bitchiness. Kira all the way.

Yeah, @2, the whole point of the system we've been living under for over two centuries is not just to prevent despotic tyranny by leaders, but to keep in check the irrational whims of "pure democracy," which I think a tax-payers' line item veto would do.
Just think-- would you want your average Walmart cashier, 18-year old juggalo, or internet comments section troll deciding whether or not the NIH should get 3 million dollars for fruit fly research?

commented on No, Seriously. Check Your Head.
The reason that I still remember "Check Your Head" fondly is because it was part of that huge wave of iconic, non-debut albums that came out in 1991-92 from bands that were just becoming mainstream. Chronologically, it's really easy to group with Badmotorfinger, Bloodsugarsexmagik, Nevermind, Ten, Helmet's Meantime, Reverend Horton Heat's Liquor in the Front, and a host of other amazing albums from the era. But, unlike all these albums, and unlike Paul's Boutique, it's pretty hard to listen to Check Your Head start to finish. The attempts at funky wahwah pedal instrumentals were pretty weak, and take away from great songs like Jimmy James, Pass the Mike, and Whatcha Want.
