hated band #4 (sorry about this one groundcat...) janis joplin. i know, not a "band", but a musician. and i hated her voice the moment i heard it.
i was about 4 years old and loved looking at the album cover for "cheap thrills" (a few years ago i realized it was an r. crumb drawing, no wonder i loved it.) anyways, i begged my parents to play the actual album, and when they did i was horrified.
almost every guy i've dated has a few joplin albums, and i just don't get it. her voice is like nails on a chalkboard to me. but that album cover kicked ass..... i knew it was "naughty" and loved it.
i also loved looking at my mom's paperbacks of "sybil" and "helter skelter". no wonder i am so......weird!!! (screwed up, but loveable, right?) not unlike one of my idols, tina fey. which brings us to some important news and an "i told ya so!"i told ya so!!! "30 rock" won an emmy for best comedy last night. yes!!!
