    Quick question, how many others pronounce Devo as dih-voe with the accent on the second syllable? That seemed to be an in thing among a number of folks I've known.
    I've always pronounced it DEE-voh, as it is pronounce in the song Jocko Homo - "Are we not men? We are DEE-VOH!" To accent the second syllable makes me think of Bell Biv Devoe.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    I like Sparks, though I think of them as very different from Devo.

    And the great thing about the song "Respect" is that both Otis's and Aretha's versions are fantastic.

    Devo re-invented "Satisfaction" and in the process improved upon the Rolling Stones' most overrated song by a longshot.

    I went to Bowling Green State University who was a cousin of (I think) Alan Myers.
    She said he was just a regular guy.

    Spending much of my youth in Cuyahoga Falls, I played soccer for a number of years with Mark and Bob Mothersbaugh's first cousin.

    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.
