    positive habits: attempting to see the humanity in everyone.
    negative habits: cigaretttttttttttes :[

  2. Oh man, so many good folks.

    So another fellow that came out of the Mekons, Jon Langford, did quite a bit of stuff under his own name, and has been a member of the Pine Valley Cosmonauts and the Waco Brothers and now has been touring under the name of Skull Orchard.

    I’ve been listening to a lot of Big Star lately, and frontman Alex Chilton got his start in a group called the Box Tops, playing radio-friendly pop music.

  3. generationals! worst habit: biting my darn finger nails
    best habit: starting to throw my cigarette butts away!

  4. Winners have been notified. Thanks guys!
