I don't think a single one of these is by a band that I introduced you to. I fail at life.

I don't think I introduced Jacob to any of those bands. I don't think I introduced Jacob to too many bands on a whole. But I know there were a couple, dammit!

There are a few songs we share a mutual love for that I would include on a top 100 list for sure (which is very, very tiny), namely Spoon (!), Wire (!), and the Strokes. And there are a shitload that I really enjoy. And many I don't know and just might look up if the motivation strikes.

And I must give love for the Replacements. I only know two people in the whole wide world that love them as much as me. Awwww...
