    not bad. but no our lady peace? no avril lavigne? i’d have picked morissette’s “ironic”, since she’s driving in that video too. but hey, most of the music i listen to involves the sound of a harpsichord, so i shouldn’t criticize others.

    i guess this means we won’t be hearing from you again for a while. 😦 with all the traveling you do, your theme music should be “eagle” by abba. 🙂

    what did i say about a harpsichord? 😡

    okay, never mind that. 😛

    i was always a bit partial to “superman’s dead”, not sure why. maybe it’s the lyrics:
    “do you worry that you’re not liked?
    how long till you break?
    you’re happy cause you smile,
    but how much can you fake?”
