"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49am karlward:

This song makes me feel like: 1) I am on hold, 2) I am inside a video game, and 3) I like being on hold, but only when inside a video game, and only when this is the hold music.
Avatar 11:50am coelacanth∅:

"may i put you on hold for a moment?"
..."Please do!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57am karlward:

"...but only if you intend to keep playing this der plan, because if you change it to something else, I will hang up this cell phone so hard that you feel it, in your call tree."
Avatar 12:03pm coelacanth∅:
