None of my favorite genres are listed, alas. Where are "fake jazz", "Swedish indiepop", "easy-listening orchestras with prominent Fender bass", "bubblegum", "band singers", "French girl singers", "western swing", "Bollywood", or "sunshine pop"?

Seriously, that list looks like the music section at Fred Meyer or something. Rock? You mean like My Chemical Romance, or like the Rolling Stones, or like Cannibal Corpse, or like Seals and Crofts?

Can't they just plug in XM or something? Which reminds me, in the future there will be almost limitless low-paying opportunities for terrible DJs to find work outside of clubs.

No whale rock? No shoegazing? No Conga Master Poncho Sanchez? Hip Hop? Fuck this menu.

Make it so, and "So it goes" lest we forget Kurt...

There could be a category just for Nirvana.

Kurt who? Kurt Bloch?

It's funny you mention French Girl Singers fnarf because I am listening to Francie Gall right now.

"Make it so number 1" Now you to can live out your fantasy of being the elderly French Capitan of a roving apartment building in space just by staying at the deluxe...

France Gall is a goddess. I refuse to get involved in any "Francoise Hardy vs. France Gall, if you love one you must hate the other" B.S., because they are both lovelier than flowers. If I had to choose, I'd go with France, though; narrower range but higher peaks. I so much want to listen to France Gall while I'm at whatever hotel that menu is from.

How the hell did you know that was my fantasy, Giffy?

Posted by Fnarf | May 25, 2007 12:50 PM

The tubes go both ways my friendly Fnarf, both ways.

Oh, Jesus. Well, I hope you wash your hands before you eat, that's all I have to say. It's filthy in here.

The woman who won the video iPod was jazzed at SIFF.

What happened to Kurt B? He looked fine when I saw him at the U Village QFC last week.
