Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

I must have heard that song once in the last three years, and yet the last memory I have of hearing that song is from my freshman year, back in Freeborn Hall. My next-door neighbor played it via an mp3 via MacAmp and we danced around the room. How very long ago that was.
