    Rush -- I am right there with you. Cannot listen to 'em.

    Boston -- I am pretty much there with you; way overrated (at least by their fans). Tom Scholz put "their" first album together in his basement -- there wasnt even a band. Their (his) first album sounds horrible, too (unbearably bright and thin). Still, I was of an impressionable age, so the first album gets a pass ;)

    Queen -- a few great songs, and they get a pass for having a guitarist who 1) was pretty good and 2) went on to earn the PhD in astrophysics.

    I guess if I was a stoner I'd say "get high" but their music is more reaching. I enjoy it

And Mother. And God.”

    When she picked me up, she nearly broke my spine.


    See....I thought she was one of those bigass Texas women, Ron.
    But, once I saw she had a bigger "member" than mine.....I was embarrased.
    Confused at that point.... I questioned this anomoly before me. To which she/he stated...."You bought me drinks, so I am returning the favor."
    Never...EVER....buy a woman from Texas a drink.
    She's more of a man than I'll ever be.
