[i] The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists’ Doomsday Clock is a left-wing way to terrorize the citizens of the world whenever a conservative or Republican is president of the United States. Pay no attention to these scumbags.
[ii] We hope to present the music of Sly & the Family Stone within the next decade or so. Please stay tuned for further information.
[iii] We should have shared the music of Badfinger at the time we promoted that of the Beatles but guess what? We flipping failed just as we failed to promote the music of Thunderclap Newman at the same time we did the Who. One day, we sure as heck will so please remain vigilant.
[iv] We look forward to doing the music of Steely Dan at some point within the next 10-15 years. Please stay with us.
