SEQUENCE OF EVENTS THAT LED TO MY WATCHING BLIND MELON VH1 BEHIND THE MUSIC ON YOUTUBE YESTERDAY

  1. 1.
    Gchat w a friend about possibly going to the soul asylum/meat puppets show in ny

    Decide against going bc we only know that one soul asylum song and my friend doesn't even like it.

    This leads to long discussion of 90s one hit wonders. My friend likes collective soul. I expound on the greatness of blind melon.
