8/25/06 Show - Love Part 1: The Bitter

It was just like one of those movies where two people meet. At first they hate each other. "You are just impossible!" one of them says to the other. But then they start to realize that the hate is really love. There's a little problem though. You see, one of them has promised to marry some rich jerk. The other one, in a Grand Hilarious Gesture, rushes off to the wedding in hopes of stopping it. Except they don't make it. Or they get hit by a bus. Or they do make it but the other one decides that they'd still rather be with the rich jerk. Or maybe even all three. Oh, and Julia Roberts gets crabs. Again.

I can't help with the crabs, Julia, but I can provide you with some music that you may relate to. All songs about love. Love where there are no Pretty Women and Harry Gets Cheated On By Sally. The bitter, failed side of love. It's never sounded so good:
