* Ever actually means 'since August 2006, when I started using Google Analytics'. The site started in August '04.
So, what does this all mean?

it means you should delete all those "runescape gold" spamshit comments from this top 20
Gah! You can't imagine how long I spend deleting Runescape Gold spam...
CAT PEE IN THE MICR- aww damn it.

oh well.

Whoever chose those was wrong (and it's probably us, your readers!!)

The best Music Thing article I have ever seen is the one about why music is "sounding" the same, and the market research groups who pick what gets on the radio. I wish I could recall the name of it, I would love to memorize it!!

I always enjoy Music Thing, but more then just being a fun bit of info on some new product or some crazy cool artist, that article was thought provoking, sort of frightening, and made me more resolved to keep playing with my machines, and making sounds for the sheer joy of doing it.

By the way, there are no WORST articles here. And on the Internet, that's a rare gem of a sight!!
Ha Ha Ha
Esteban made it on the list.
best regards David Owen
The Bhajis Loops article introduced me to my best friend.

Also, what rev bucky said.
