We are nothing if not diverse.

That said, I have a thing about CSN and sometimes ask Y why.

Is it just my evil desires, or does Neko in your stocking sound dirty?

And yes, I checked out the 8 nights of Yo La at Maxwells. Have to make it to one of those of these years. At least I have several YLT at Maxwells New Year's Eves to remember.

I'm guessing it's not a particularly good thing. That's all right -- everybody has their own likes and dislikes. Tom tried to shame me a while back for having Simon & Garfunkel on my iTunes list, but in that regard, I'm shameless. I'm old, I still listen to most of the music I grew up with, and I apologize to no one about it.

No apologies necessary, Generik. Just don't play CSN when I'm around.

Tom, great list, especially that Knife cut, one of my favorites of theirs. And yes, that was me over at TBogg. Somehow when I first registered at FDL I didn't see I should put my URL in and now it won't let me even when I "update" my profile.
