i've gotten a few of these... i try to be nice to them in hopes that they
might give it an open-minded listen and realize that there may be a
different aesthetic at play. i've also had a couple of people say that
some record stores (usually the big stupid ones) are filing it w/ the beck
releases. not something we really planned but you have to love the
confusion and the possibility of opening up some beck fan to something
