    She describes 2-Step as "formulaic." Uh... I do believe all forms of
    electronica, and heck, most genres of music in general are "formulaic."
    Drum n Bass is formulaic. You can't have a Drum N Bass tune at 103bpm, can
    you? House is VERY formulaic. It won't be house without that
    4-on-the-floor, right?

    It looks like Leslie needs to go to the Hospital.
    Hospital Records, that is.
    She needs a perscription of LANDSLIDE. Stat!
