ATTENTION MUSIC BOARD ENTHUSIASTS

Many of you are no doubt familiar with the "All Music Guide", the internet's answer to your retarded uncle who claimed to know John Bonham. You can find it at www.allmusic.com (http://www.allmusic.com).

I was browsing there this evening, and I noticed strange parallels between Meat Loaf, the Gin Blossoms, and Husker Du--they're all, through some obscene AMG logic, slightly altered versions of The Chipmunks. Whether they're "more Plain, Simple", "more Sensual, Playful", or even "Gentler, more Peaceful", I've found that a cavaclade of artists can be definded in terms of Alvin, Simon, and Theodore.

The basis of the Chipmunk Contest is this: using ten or fewer steps, connect the Chipmunks to the most improbable band or solo artist you possibly can. Post them here, and on next Saturday I will select the winning entry and bestow a money prize of $5 on the winner.

That's it. Have fun.

I made it to Helmet in three turns!

More Soothing, Relaxing--> Paul Young
More Soothing, Relaxing--> Sterling Morrison
More Sober, Arranged--> Helmet

Sadly, you can't get any more sober or arranged than Helmet... oh, well.

The Chipmunks --->
Alvin (of the Chipmunks) --->
Alvin Acorn (jazzman) --->
There is a story, most likely untrue, that floats around that Korn (Acorn-->Korn) got their name when one of the members was sucking another man's anus with a straw and got corn in his mouth. --->
Anal Cunt

Boom shakalaka.<font color="black">
