    Steve doesn’t watch those shows…also I don’t understand why you don’t have honorable mentions for TV but do for everything else. 6 Feet Under and K Street should be included in that!!!

    Steve… check out The Killers album Hot Fuss. I haven’t heard anything better since DMB Crash. Not that they’re anything alike, but it’s that good.
