    Good point there; now that is a woman with lungs. Either one of you heard her Sono l'Antichristo? It was on that Nervous Systems compilation (amazing CD btw). P.s. DAMN IT! How could I forget Lady Day?

    I haven't, actually. Saw her live once; it was otherworldly. I literally felt euphoric afterward. Partially it was that I was just incredibly impressed with her range and power, but much as I love her, it was also partly one of those "because it feels so good when it stops" moments. She's amazing.
