Wouldn't be the first time. ;-)

True. I think pages focused on music exclusively though are lacking in
some ways. I'm not 100% committed to this yet, but I want to get an
idea of what it would take, and what people would want.

It's true. Dead links are a bit of a nightmare. For some reason, the
links on AI sites always seem to be the most "dead". Odd. ;-)

Generous? Well I'm doing it for myself just as much as anyone else. I
would really like to use such a resource. Plus, I'd get to hear all the
music that didn't make it to the site. ;-)

Hell, I go to liberal arts college, I have plenty of time on my hands.
At least until I transfer...
