No. But that only helps in not clouding my judgement when reading this post.

"honest to goodness R&B"

Well, matt is a computer guy (and about as white as a guy can get ;), not a music critic. Matt writing that its 'honest to goodness R&B' carries about as much weight as Justin Timberlake telling me the virtues of php over perl.

As far anil, he just has horrible taste ;)

Anil made me do it!

Really, it's not as bad as I thought it would be. I've heard much worse stuff.

Screw you all! And most of all Kottke! I wish I could be all counterculture like you and talk about how I love Nicole Kidman. Then I'd be cool like Jason is and Matt is not.

I hate all of you, I'm quitting my weblog forever.

I find that hearing someone say "Justin Timerlake is not that bad" is much harder on the ears then actually listening to man's music.
It's amazing how much I have to weigh these two up against eachother.
Ahem. We'll leave it there folks.

Ok, Der...ah, Anil.

i got into trouble over a similar statement of "its not as bad as i thought" with my wife regarding mr. timberlake...and it isn't. still, i'd rather listen to about 1,000 different artists.

Justified has some real gems on it. I agree with Anil that the ballads are weak.

It's cool to like new JT, but it's intensely uncool to like new Liz Phair.

Is corporate rock the new punk rock? *

It's a sign of mediocrity when you demonstrate gratitude with moderation.
