Jesus. You can't expect me to rank this.

The Replacements
Bob Dylan

Oh my god. Whoever wrote this can't possibly be a music fan. Only three? How about three of my many favorite songs by the aforementioned artists. Once again, no ranking implied.

"Left of the Dial"
"Visions of Johanna"
"Pale Blue Eyes"

Three of your favorite hobbies/interests:

Roof parties
Playing the ukulele

Finding an apartment next fall.

Three conspiracy theories you think are true:

David Mamet

Three places you want to go on vacation:


I send this on to Byron Calame, Erica Jong, and, uh... Vestal Vespa. I'm looking forward to Erica's.
