    Kilvinsky I think, therefore I'll never be promoted.

    I liked him better after WHAM! A couple of his songs were pretty damn good. Otherwise, feh. Who here has seen "Keanu". The scene where Keegan Michael Keye is getting down with the gangsta's and educating them on George Michael is PRICELESS!
