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.

    Cheers,

    The first few tracks from Vespertine have been forever ruined by an ex....

    I do like to listen to Post/Homogenic in the gym though.

    Bjork is great though, but obv too inaccessible for the freshman 15 gaining texting while driving Kardashian worshiping intellect dodging general American public....

    Mediocrity is inescapable, celebrated even.

    I think it is (mostly) cooked-up.

    There is a huge place in the mainstream marketplace today for things that appear urban, authentic, non-corporate, and non-white. This can be seen in many areas, for example the recent trend of "lifestyle centers" replacing indoor malls. These new outdoor malls are successful because they tap into this desire by attempting to bring an "urban" experience to the suburbs.

    Why do you find it so difficult to believe that some large corporations may be capable of creating musical content and performance of this type that fools people such as yourself? I suspect you are underestimating these companies abilities, and overestimating the general public's savvy.

    Yo man stereotyping the American public isn't going to get you anywhere in life. It's fun to feel superior but I really haven't met too many people who fit into the exact category you describe.

    Bjork is good but I don't know if she's "inaccessible." The Bad Plus playing Gyorgy Ligeti is inaccessible, Bjork is just kind of underexposed/unnerving?

    Plus Esperanza Spalding just won a Grammy so I'm feeling benevolent toward the American public.

    How about a fit including the most patterns possible? I think that'd be fun as hell.

    If you come down to columbus circle to say hello I'll buy you a coffee or a water or something.

    There are also a lot of places to eat in the upper 50's on broadway
