Re: Today I Made:

Yesterday I made baked potato, broccoli, cheddar and garlic pizza. Sounds weird. Was kind of structurally iffy. Still delicious. :)

Re: Today I Made:

Yesterday I made spinach pesto (with some garlic, basil and olive oil in, not much else). I am continuing in my grand tradition of making myself a dinner that's vegan, then pouring cheese all over it. I made it using fresh spinach, and I have to say - it stayed an entertainingly vibrant green. Signi...

Re: What does it mean to you to love a band/musician?

In fact the most important criterion for me is how important their music is to me and my life. I love REM because they were the first band I ever got into and because their songs are hopelessly entangled with my emotions as a teenager and carry a lot of memories for me. I love Leonard Cohen, becaus...

What does it mean to you to love a band/musician?

So I'm curious, because in talking with other folks about their favorite musicians, sometimes I think people have very different standards for what it means to love a band. Ideas I've seen come up: 1) You love every track on most of their albums, rather than just hits 2) You follow the lives of the ...
