America's Hundred Wost:

I'm confused. Are the parenthetical entries a runner-up...or your favorite from the previous list or something else?

Also, you're very interesting.

What does an assistant crack whore do? (And do they make good money? Maybe I should look into it)

Um, neither Debussy or Chopin are classical composers - They're romantic composers. And Debussy is barely even in the romantic period - he's more early modern.

plus, i'm reasonably sure it is "k.d. lang" not "K.T."

Smurf, I've been told I should get to know you, but I'm afraid that, based on your distaste for Chopin alone, we may not be able to reconcile our differences. I mean, I can agree with you on Everybody Loves Raymond, Chris Farley, poop, and Master of Disguise, but "anything abstract", spiders, Great Whites, and Salt Lake City? I'm not sure I can surmount this obstacle to our potential friendship. Sad day.
