I like the top of the yes/no voting, when it states that "people who voted yes/no for(blank) also voted yes/no for". Usually you can get a clue as to what people have perceived as being like-minded enough to be grouped together. For instance, when I voted no for Clay Aiken it promptly told me that others voted on in the negative included Britney/Jessica/etc. - basically what I expected to find in the grouping in terms of yea or nea. With Roky Erickson I am legitimately confused here. It says that folks who voted yes for Roky also supported: UB40/Genesis/the Monkees/the Moody Blues/Jethro Tull. This has got to be the strangest grouping of artists ever. Does anyone hear Erickson or the Elevators in any of these acts? For that matter, does anybody hear any of these acts in Roky? ZZ Top maybe, but these folks...?

Please forgive me, sir/madam.

I was on a literary high when I wrote that. I was freebasing a thesaurus, &, well, you know what that's like...

Roky Erickson should be inducted with the 13th Floor Elevators.
