    Ah Hah!!! Variety, the Spice of Life. I'll take DJ Krush's Code 4019's
    "Final Home" and then Led Zeppelin's "When the Levee Breaks" from Zofo. Now
    that would be friggin' Good to Go, Funk doesn't just exist where one thinks
    it would!!! Then The Cure "Fascination Street" into their version of Jimi
    Hendrix "Purple Haze" from the Stone Free Tribute. Then bust into some The
    Grassy Knoll top it off with Billy Idol/Steve Stevens "Flesh for Fantasy"
    extended oh yeah add in Nils Petter Molvaer's "Khmer" now that would be
    nice. I'll take my Acid Downtempo with a Double Shot of Rock!!!

    I feel much better now, hopefully I am not condemned to 1977 Polyester Hell.
      I think folks re missing a point I was making as well. Growing up during
    the 70's really sucked in my area here in South Carolina. Closed Minded,
    the Disco-phile were militantly close minded. Me? Close Minded? I like to
    say I'm selective. I know what I like and what I don't but then again still
    being here in South Carolina one doesn't get the full exposure to a wide
    variety of music like in major metropolitan areas. I detested having Disco
    pushed in my face when I was younger and I'm sure those folks detested
    having what I liked having shoved in their faces as well. Once again it
    comes around to variety is the Spice of Life.

    Maybe I was misunderstood a little but the Peace Pipe goes out to one and
    all who got bent.

    Semper Motociclismo,
