I didn't want to break it down anymore, I figured this was enough to read. I would like to thank AP.net for another wonderful year as 2005 showed me so much. I've been here almost 2 years and never would I have ever imagined all the people I would have met and all the awesome opportunities that have come my way due to this site. I know 2 years ago I had no idea about any of these bands or anything about this scene. So thanks to Jason to taking a chance on an unknown email 2 years ago about a guy wanting to help out with the lyrics :).

I'm glad you have theAUDITION on there. I especially like "Don't Be So Hard", good choice. I admire all of the staff for doing a favorite songs category. I don't think I could take on a task like that! There are too many goods songs!
