Also, Jeet's my bestest friend, 'cuz Psychonauts was terrific. Finally an almost frustration-free game with a story and storyteling device that kept my interest to the bitter end.

- Likewise, the most popular day was Wednesday.

Meaning that most people post from work, what with Wednesday being the usual day of resigning yourself to your fate.  Monday/Tuesday are fueled by denial while Thur/Fri are fueled with hope.  Wed is just pure despair.

Staying in the blues field, Bernard Allison rocks. If they have the album with "Feels Kinda Funny," check it out. Bernard is the son of Luther Allison, and he plays a more rocking form of the blues.
