  1. I can't say that I disagree.
    That's a pretty good roundup, IMO.

    Seems kinda dumb. Also, I have very little respect for anyone who chooses to use derogatory slurs for gay people.
  3. Wait a second.

    Not-so-cool item #5 is envelope filter.

    Semi-cool item #5 is a distortion pedal before the envelope filter.

    How can having a distortion filter before the envelope filter be
    semi-cool when it is not-so-cool to even have an envelope filter.

    Bzzzzt! Fail!

    You must've had your magnifying glass out, but somebody has to do it. I doubt the author is looking for respect anyway.
  6. That is an extremely lame list. The semi-cool list is no better either. Actually, that whole book seems lame to me.

    Lame and self-satisfied. Add stupid lists to the list and then we'll start talking.

    An Emo guitar player had the time to sit down and write this? :D
    Wait a minute! I just looked at the introduction of the entire book and saw the picture of the Chunklet editor. THAT'S the guy that screwed up my Soy Latte at Starbucks! Worst barista ever! So THAT'S what he does with his spare time? ;)

    I disagree with point 7 (the correct nomenclature is euro-trash, not his rude variant); point 18 (nothing wrong with MA, except he should be held down and dry-shaved); point 28 (welcome to the 21st century); and point 42 (I can't drink a whole bottle of JD anymore and I do have my reputation to uphold). The rest seems about right (I only read the 'uncool' part; mind wandered after that).
