>Happy Christmas/Chanukkah/Kwanzaa/holiday greeting here>...

Hannukah was over a month ago. Do not wish us Happy Hannukah, unless you
intend to wish us a Happy Hannukah for '95. And in that case, remember,
there's only 366 shopping days left for Christmas.

Umm, if it's used then nobody gets the money really.

Why didn't anyone complain when the 4-AD'er told about how they lifted
a copy of Dials out of the boxed set and replaced it with a copy of
Loves Easy Tears( or some such) and then returned it to the store?  I
thought about complaining but what's the use.

Well as far as new albums go, the CTs are due for a new one.  FCC
was out in 93, and they have a new album out every two years at least.

Plus, there are people whose votes never registered, like me.  I
reached this conclusion from looking at the single-vote artists
mentioned, as my lonely votes for Colin Newman (my fourth among "favorite
4AD artists of all time"), the compilations _Trance Planet_ and _The
Secret Life of Trance 2_ (two entirely different kinds of trance, but
both among my favorite releases of this year) and Hildegard von Bingen
(biggest disappointment) did not show up.  Yet since my faves, Dead Can
Dance, showed up exactly where they should have, the end results were
perfectly OK by me . . .  Then again, if you want to complain
(humorously or not) about the "people who never voted," you're going to
have to take into consideration the votes that never got there -- possibly
because of the directions for the poll, which I found confusing or ambiguous
in certain ways.  In any case, while I appreciate Lars' efforts, this poll
seems far from perfect (just like most Net polls), and the drawn-out
discussion about it actually drove me into lurkerhood for a while.

Bah, humbug . . .

-- Richard Singer

P.S.  Re. HNIA, I listened to _Home Is In Your Head_ after a month or
two of not hearing it, and I began to realize that this is a very
underrated album.
