Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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.

Only a few days ago did I discover that the band "Linkin Park" in fact spells its name that way. I had only heard it previously. In remotely related music news, Slate says that the conventional wisdom on the new Wilco movie is completely wrong! (Careful, Slate, you'll turn into Salon! At this point I wish I could link to my old Segfault story "Gangbangst: Rejected Salon Stories", but it's lost and possibly gone forever. Hey, if you count that as a Guster ref, that's three bands in one para!)
My friends who know way more about music than I do, and who have educated me about music over the past two years, include Leonard, Adam, and Sabrina. Well, I'm leery of calling Sabrina a friend, since we've met a total of once, but I read her weblog regularly, and I saw just now that she links to me in her weblog's navbar, so you can take that for what it's worth.
