Forgive me readers, for I have sinned. It has been nearly two months since my last blog entry. The slave-drivers at work have been cracking the whip especially hard lately, and rather than let the quality of writing here slip, I put updates on hold until I could give the blog this blog the time it needs. I refuse to play NL ball and put out a steady stream of piss poor entries that "get the job done". Big hits only. That's a promise.

The CD is pretty good though.
3) That this blog isn't factored into metacritic's composite scores. If it were, Hercules and Love Affair would not be in the top 10 I assure you.
4) People that list themselves in the "Zouk" genre. I really don't think it applies in most cases. Stop thinking its cute. Its not. I'm talking to you St. Vincent ... I don't care how much Ram loves you.
5) Not this:
