Big ups for quoting The Replacements. While hacks like The Goo Goo Dolls mine the crap out of The Mats' material and serve them over to an unsuspecting public, a lyrical genius like Paul Westerberg is relegated to cult status. Some things just aren't right in this world.

Here Comes A Regular indeed.

I really should be working on that deadline now *grr*
