Apparently my audience has been clamoring for a new post on this blog. My audience of, uh, one regular reader, who shall be known here as Hot Slice (HS). If no one else is reading this, I suppose it's all right to use his nickname. HS convinced me to bring this blog back from retirement, even though he won't leave comments, because of his misgivings about Google-brand applications. Those misgivings are probably well founded, but I'm going to soldier on regardless.
Because not everyone appreciates my talent for instantly divining whether band names Suck or Rule, I am going to introduce a Pitchfork-style scale (0.0 to 10.0) for rating band names.
