    He ate at Checkers and found a fingernail in his apple pie. True story.

    A whole finger, to be honest.

    The former actually happened to me...my Grandfather ate the fingernail to prove to me it wasn't actually a fingernail. It was a fingernail.

    No, just some of the people we have to deal with on a daily basis.

    Yes, because you had to elaborate for all to see on a forum concerning a conversation we already had in private. :lbf:

    What? I want to be sure the world knows that your hatred of life has nothing to do with me.

    I actually saw "Handwritten" at FNAC last evening. It was the version with the three bonus tracks on it, for a total of 14 songs. It was on sale for 15 euro. One of the last songs was "You Got Lucky" and I thought "like the Tom Petty song?"

    Another was called "sliver" and I thought "like the Nirvana song?"

    turns out BOTH songs are covers by said artists, which would have been pretty interesting to hear.

    but I didn't buy it because I had no idea if I'd like it or not.

    And that particular store is located way up on top of a hill in a district overlooking the city, and no way in hell I'm making that trek again in this heat

    here's the first single from the album.

    Sounds like a hybrid of Springsteen and Social D

    erm...

    Think I'll pass on this one

    That's not a slam against Skylarker or the band, either. They obviously have a dedicated fanbase; just look at the audience in the video

    just not the kind of music I'm into at this stage of my existence.
