Speaking of Primus...it's great to know that they're back to their original lineup. HERB IS BACK!!! (Tim Alexander)

Hmm... I'd only stroke 4 bands off the list, and I could understand why at least one is on there.

Skinny Puppy - okay, not everyone is a fan of heavy industrial, doesn't help the way Nivek Ogre looked back then either - like a slightly more muscular "Azriel Abyss" (from SNL's Goth Talk)

But I'm a fan of Live, and Bob Geldof and I respect the Doors (though after hearing Riders on the Storm for the millionth time on the radio, I'd have a bone to pick as well... but that should put George Thoroughgood on the list as well - anyone else's rock station play "One Bourbon..." 18 times a day?)

Hmm... does bring up the idea of putting Pat Boone and David Coverdale in a room together - last man standing lives.

You may disagree with their picks, but I'd never heard about Blender until now.

Fabulous post, Jack. Just fabulous. You expressed my feelings exactly. There are lots of "good" movies or good pieces of music that I don't "enjoy". On a good day, I can recognize their technical merit, complexity and maybe even a hint of the artist's vision. But it is entirely possible that the artist is trying to reach me either in a way that I do not wish to be reached, or in a way that does not resonate with my life experience.

Another example is that many people are enthralled by reality TV or crime/medical shows. Those kinds of shows just make me feel grumpy or sad, so I choose to spend my leisure time on other things that make me feel happy. Now, I grant that ER is a "good" television show, but I don't care to watch that level of seriousness or that kind of content right before I go to bed.

And, most importantly, the diversity of our experiences and our interests is what makes this such a wonderful world.

"I don't believe that life is supposed to make you feel good, or to make you feel miserable either. Life is just supposed to make you feel." - Gloria Naylor

Do what I do - since it's on here at 9:00pm, don't got to bed until 3:30am - lots of time to clear your head between!

Lez Zeppelin??? Thou hast blasphemed!

And you can't possibly hate the band that wrote Freebird...
