    Argh... LastFM refuses to register everything I listen to besides on Winamp. This cuts down on the number of tracks I listen to because Windows Media Explorer acts like a bitter woman who won't make me breakfast after I throw up on her, mid-coitus, AGAIN.. so prissy.

    For example, I can't show on here that I listened to the Seinking Ships EP because I was careless enough not to rip it onto my hard drive five seconds after it arrived in the mail. Fuck that, I have hardcore porn to fill my memory up with.

    Stealing the poll from Dopshoppe, btw. Yea, I roll like that.

    Name your top 10 most played artists on Last.fm:

    1. Afghan Whigs

    2. mclusky

    3. Therapy?

    4. Wussy

    5. Future Of The Left

    6. Firewater

    7. Ass Ponys

    8. Scott H Biram

    9. Devin Townsend

    10. Girls Against Boys

    Now answer the questions according to the numbers:

    What was the first song you ever heard by 6?

    "Some Strange Reaction" off of their first LP "Get Off The Cross, We Need Wood For The Fire". It's like crawling off of the floor after a three day hangover and discovering that your wife left you, the dog has shat on the neighbor's $300,000 Camero and remembering that the cable bill isn't paid.

    What is your favorite album by 2?

    mclusky - "...Do Dallas". It's about 40 minutes of rock and roll, stripped of all pretentiousness and balled into a fist that socks you right in the gullet. They make no friends, but they also make no enemies in this record.

    What is your favorite lyric that 5 has sung?

    When I can get my hands on the actual album, I'll let you know.

    How many times have you seen 4 live?

    Once, in VA and finding that damned pub was the most frustrating thing in my life. It was worth seeing them, as Lisa Walker is a gem, but getting in and out of lower DC is akin to stabbing yourself in the testicles with a knife that hasn't been sharpened since 1976.

    What is your favorite song by 7?

    Hard to choose, but it is probably "(Baby) I Love You (Baby)." In Chuck Cleaver's own way, he makes the song of someone addicted to medicinal morphine sound sweet and longing.

    They removed the 81 per cent
    What about the 19 they didn't get

    She comes to give me something for the pain
    Slaps my arm to help her find a vein
    I love you, i love you

    As my habit forms the morphine drips
    Lean on over here and read my lips

    The shot that burns before it numbs it all
    Preceded by the smell of alcohol
    I love you, i love you

    As my habit forms the morphine drips
    Lean on over here and read my lips
    I love you, i love you

    Yea...

    Is there a song by 3 that makes you sad?

    "Misery".. basically about an old love who comes around again and again to make your life a living hell, long after you've left her for dead.

    What is your favorite lyric that 2 has sung?

    "Our old singer was a sex criminal"

    What is your favorite song by 9?

    "Hyperdrive", although the entire "Ziltoid The Omniscient" could be regarded as a masterpiece.

    How did you get in to 3?

    Way back in the early 90's I saw a video on 120 Minutes called "Die Laughing". It was angsty, cheeky and featured a catchy hook. I was sold.

    What was the first song you heard by 1?

    "Gentlemen" in 1993, off the album of the same name. It never made a big splash on the popular market, but I was hooked.

    What is your favorite song by 4?

    A hard choice, as I love most of their songs.. currently, though, it would be "Jonah".

    What is a good memory you have concerning 2?

    Snatching a copy of their last album in a record store... I didn't know it would be their last, but it was a feeling I hadn't gotten since high school.

    Is there a song of 8 that makes you sad?

    "Lost Case Of Being Found".. sad and made even worse as it's sung by one man sitting along with his guitar in a room where you can hear the echoes bouncing off the walls.

    What is your favourite album of 5?

    Well, they only have one so "Curses". Manchasm, Suddenly It's A Folk Song, Plague Of Onces... so many great fucking songs.

    What is your favourite lyric that 3 has sung?

    "Live like a fucker, die like a motherfucker." 'Nuff said.

    What is your favourite song of 1?

    That's like asking which limb I'd like to lose in an accident.. they're all great and I can't exclude just one. If I had to choose, I guess "Debonair" or "Faded".. fuck I can't even do THAT.

    What is your favourite song of 10?

    "Click Click".. it's just 4 minutes of pure sexy wrapped in horny and then shoved down your throat like a... err, maybe I should stop here.

    How many times have you seen 9 live?

    Devin? None. Although I believe his alien armada will soon overtake us all, so that won't be a problem.

    What is your favourite album of 1?

    Another hard question... but in the end I would die with "Gentlemen" buried in my coffin. It's all about a relationship that crumbles over the course of 45 minutes, replete with venom, regret and everything else anyone has ever experienced with a woman. Damn you all.

    What is a great memory you have concerning 8?

    One person, one great show and something I was lucky enough to experience.
