    so i understand that i am a day late with this, Nigel Ewan, and for that, i apologize! however, i listened through all of JD's 1991 work, Taboo VI: The Homecoming, and his contribution to some random compilation.

    Favorite song: I'm going to go on a limb here, and say that Wild Palm City is my favorite of 1991. There is just... something about how you can tell that this has to be the first song he recorded; like he just picked up the guitar and started strumming it. I mean, the chord progressions don't always match up, and there are errors, etc. It's quality. I know "Going to Alaska" would probably be the definitive answer here... but... I like Wild Palm City lots.
    Favorite lyric: Hmm... I think I'm going to go with "I'm going to move all my vital organs to someplace outside my body/The wiring is something you would not believe. from Ice Cream, Cobra Man. Just the imagery is quite cool; imaginative. JD is a solid songwriter, in my opinion…
