"Before you know it as the years go by, you're just like other people you have seen, with all those peculiar human ailments. Just another vehicle for temper and vanity and rashness and all the rest. Who wants it? Who needs it? These things occupy the place where a man's soul should be." -- Henderson the Rain King

Ouch... The Decemberists don't make your top 10!

As usual, your musical tastes are a less mainstream superset of my own; I think I've heard only a couple songs from your list. This is a good thing though, since it usually means I will like though have not yet heard from your picks. Thanks!

And happy birthday man! :)
