in that context, lainers, it is disturbing :) but no, someone on this list
said before that chart was going downhill...he may be right. but what i
find disturbing here is how dead-on i was...i remember saying to someone
on this list that the "sloan watch" icon was one step on the road to
teenybopper magazine land. and here we have a most sexiest musician
contest, which i also took as a joke. until i saw the magazine. is the
reason chart added color so's they could print pin-up quality photos? next
month, can we expect to see a centerfold? hunk of the month feature?
contest to win a date with _________?  i know i should know; after all, i
saw that this was gonna happen. it's a sad day.

i hate being right.
