93. Much as I hate Brittney and the entire corporate product music commodity
meme she and her ilk represent, she really isn't worth my time arguing any more.

Maybe I'm just an elitist, and expect too much (in your eyes) of those who want to be known as artists.

So be it.

Clearly, you think she's the bees knees, and I affirm that if you love her music, then by all means enjoy the hell out of it! Go for it, and know that whenever you are rushing to the store for whatever new product the industry is telling you is hip and fantastic and the greatest thing ever ("No, this year the best music is all about lead chicks with dreadlocks and only one bracelet; it's a totally different music from last year, when the music was about long black hair and at least four different sized bracelets and tennis shoes!), you won't have to worry about me getting to the CD bin first. Of the tens of millions of CDs they will press, I shall offer you always the one that they made for me. You may have it.
