I would rank John Lennon as Number 2 right after Hendrix. John Lennons music was somthing the beatles should have gone on in that path.

I'm guessing that we're talking about songwriting? I was never impressed by Lennon's solo work but his work with the Beatles was fantastic. Lennon with the Beatles in my top 50 songwriters but his solo work isn't even in my top 100.

Justin, are you going for a record as to how many threads you start?

This isn't meant to be mean or anything, but you tend to flood us with new threads everyday...

Best just to ignore the thread if you're not interested in it.

I agree with Screwtape, Lennon + McCartney was a great songwriting team and Lennon was a fascinating personality, but on his own I wouldn't rank him at the top of anything.

How do 13 vs. threads in EYKIW keep things fresh? How does a new thread dedicated to every little photo or YouTube video you stumble (before the issue was taken care of by the mods) across keep things fresh?

If anything, one boarder posting an inordinate amount of threads keeps things stale, predictable, and downright silly.

hey justin, will you be allowed a computer if you choose to join the military? because you might want to take that into consideration when you decide.
