1. After dropping a "methinks" after that list of "I was listening to _____ BEFORE they were cool" artists, I've come to the conclusion you're a smarmy piece of shit. Thanks.

    Welp, here goes:

    1. I used “methinks” ironically, shit for brains;
    2. That wasn’t a list of “I was listening to ______ BEFORE they were cool” artists—it was a lyric directly from LCD Soundsystem’s “Losing My Edge,” a group to which I do listen; and
    3. Some of the listed artists were never ”cool,” which is the reason why the LCD track has become somewhat of a purist’s anthem; moreover, I never explicitly used the word “before,” nor did I remotely imply that I was on some shit before everybody else.  In fact, most people still aren’t on The Heat, Pharaoh Sanders etc.  Which is certainly a shame, but I don’t go around pronouncing that.
    Next time someone asks that question I’ll be sure to answer Jay-Z, Kanye West, Lil’ Wayne and Drake.  How does that sound to you? You whiny philistine?
  2. What music do you listen to?

    Where do I even begin?

    This Heat, Pere Ubu, Outsiders, Nation of Ulysses, Mars, The Trojans, The Black Dice, Todd Terry, the Germs, Section 25, Althea and Donna, Sexual Harrassment, a-ha, Pere Ubu, Dorothy Ashby, PIL, the Fania All-Stars, the Bar-Kays, the Human League, the Normal, Lou Reed, Scott Walker, Monks, Niagra…

    …Joy Division, Lower 48, the Association, Sun Ra, Scientists, Royal Trux, 10cc…

    Eric B. and Rakim, Index, Basic Channel, Soulsonic Force, Juan Atkins, David Axelrod, Electric Prunes, Gil! Scott! Heron!, the Slits, Faust, Mantronix, Pharaoh Sanders and the Fire Engines, the Swans, the Soft Cell, the Sonics, the Sonics, the Sonics, the Sonics.

    That about covers it, methinks.  

  3. I was gonna say that Mars eerily resembles the intersection of Bowery and Houston until I noticed that M103 bus map.  
On another note, this is exactly who I would cast as the protagonist to the apocryphal Short Circuit 3, you know, if given the chance.  If I were a betting man, I’d say he gets along just fine with artificial intelligence.
