I am again in awe of how effortlessly you glide from one stream of thought to another. Reading your posts, I feel as though I am having a great conversation despite all of my responses being strictly internal.

I don't know how I missed Audio Two, but that was an amazingly uninteresting track. I scoured bargain bins for rap tapes (as in cassettes and CDs) by no-shot wonders as there were often enough some rewarding finds (especially in the skits), but that is one that would have gone straight to the discard pile!

I recall hearing that Trump was using some Springsteen song and that Springsteen was not happy about it, but Springsteen has always rubbed me the wrong way with his histrionic working guy pose that I can't feel too sorry about it.

Thanks also for pointing out Costa and Maalouf, especially Costa: virtuosity that's focused and not just in service to itself is all too rare!

"I am not anti-social, I am anti-bullshit"; amen!
