What the fuck problem do you have with Womad tim? Is there something about music that doesnt follow a 4/4 timing that is just deeply wrong to you?

What is wrong with Thank Goth its Friday? But, have to admit I agree with yon on WOMAD.

The Womad is just pure evil. I met a Womad fan once. Shared a car with him for 250 kilometres. After the 100-k mark, I began planning my suicide ...

I do rag on those Goths, don't I, Andrew? Nothing personal, of course, but the whole Dark Majesty deal sometimes gets a bit ... I don't know ... cartoony. It's fun to look at Goths shopping, for some reason. I saw two last night fighting over which toothpaste to buy.

Lemme see...One wanted the stiped toothpaste until it learned that the stripes didn't actually stay like that on your teeth. Or the other wanted to buy Steredent because Grandpa uses it and it loosens your teeth so you can put them in a glass at night. How cool's that?

There's always Hits And Memorandums - crappy regional AM station where the jock doesn't back announce the Phil Collins but reads internal memos from management on air instead.
