1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Anyone else a fan?

    Apparently Karl Lagerfeld considers her a muse.

    Yes.

    I'm petting a cat right now.

    I like the band as well.

    I love her voice and her writing. I met her once - she was wasted but I guess she's sober now.

    Haven't been a big fan post-You Are Free. Preferred her sparse, almost slowcore arrangements before that.

    The combo of "Rockets"/"Still In Love" (off, uh, Myra Lee I think?) is stunning when you crank it up.

    Only listened to You Are Free, but I consider that record one of the greatest of recent times.

    Can I consider her a muse too if I work in finance?

    I can't access youtube at work but the Lived in Bars video is definitely worth a viewing.

    I like Cat Power. If you like the Kaiser connection there's an old I-D mag dedicated to her and Karl took the pics (if I remember correctly, got it lying around somewhere).

    Nice timbre of the voice, but she keeps singing the same song over and over again just like Madeleine Peyroux or K.D. Lang I get bored very quickly of these one-trick ponies.

    I lurve her voice and her general awesomeness. She is on my gf-approved list of famous women I can sleep with if given the chance.

    I like kd too. Maybe I like the stylized nature of their interpretations...
