Makes you think, I think.

That makes me think that site is bullshit... I don't think that's correct... The results it gives are ridiculous.

For all of you couch potatoes out there:

that song should come with an automatically-downloaded heavy-duty razor blade, with the option of ten meters of heavy rope (just for good measure).

"wonderfully awful"...
ridiculously awful?
existentially awful?
even-corpse-worms-won't-touch-it awful?
:P

Oh yeah! I got some of their stuff the other day, they're really cool-- bizarrely subdued for the most part, but I like what I have (except for Greatest Love Song-- I totally get the point, but it is tooooo slow for me)
