I'm working on it, believe me. But he also has a huge frame, way bigger than most labs. He's way less fat than I'm making him sound.

Just want to jump in here to say that Geoff Rickley is a really great dude and an inspiration to a whole lot of people. I hope he doesn't get blamed for all this shit, and I feel really bad for everything he's going to have to deal with as this story builds.

Didn't he narrowly escape being stuck in there for years tho? Isn't that what happens usually when they catch you with drugs over there?

Ha Speak Now is James' favorite Taylor album. We can't do the ranking because everyone here disagrees vehemently on which one is best. (Mine is the correct one tho.)

Fun story that had no place in the post: When I was 16 (around the same time Eazy died, actually) I got mugged in a Baltimore alleyway by a guy who said he had an AIDS needle. I don't know if that was a real way to kill people, but I do know it was a real way to threaten them.

Ah man, I totally meant to put Missy in there as a someone who deserves a Vanguard. Kinda disagree about OutKast, tho, and absolutely disagree about Em. Eminem basically never made a video that wasn't repulsively ugly.
