You're all winners to me, but some of you are more winners than others. Sorry, them's the facts. Also, there is no Santa Claus or Easter Bunny and I'm pretty sure the Tooth Fairy's fake, too. Also, you were adopted.

Those people who are just a little bit more my favorite are as follows:

*Shon (!)
*Robin (Robin exempted herself, but she'll get something cool)
*Patti (!)
*Bride (!)
*Christina (!)
*Courtnee (!)
*Chanel & ...
*Sarah (!)

If you have one of these - (!) - thingies by your name, it means I need a mailing address for you. If you would e-mail them to me at hello@dylantodd.com, I'll get those out really soon. Probably Monday, but... we'll see. I'm a busy guy. A jetsetter.

Big ups to everybody who participated. If you didn't get a CD, don't freak out, I'll most likely be doing another one of these every couple of months or so. Stop sobbing. It will be all right. Well, maybe it will.

But it probably won't.

Okay, so I feel like I have to apologize to everyone who tuned in to Lost this last week on my recommendation. This week's episode was incredibly weak sauce, indeed. I apologize and feel your pain. Trust me, I feel your pain. Hopefully next week's Hurley-centric episode will set things right. I think this is the one with Cheech Marin guest-starring as Hurley's estranged dad. If nothing else, Cheech will be worth watching. Plus, this is Lost, so maybe by the end of the season this episode could prove to be incredibly important (though I sincerely doubt that. Seriously, just... weak).

As long as I'm talking TV here, is anyone else watching 30 Rock? I've been following it via NBC.com (we don't get TV reception up here in Hicksville, USA, and stopped paying for satellite a year ago) and man, it is really good. I just watched the "Black Tie" episode that guest-starred Isabella Rosellini and Paul Reubens - aka Pee Wee Herman and, well, I peed a little. I think it's finally hit its stride and, hopefully, it will live a long, healthy life and not end up in the "Brilliant But Short-Lived" bin alongside Arrested Development, Andy Richter Controls the Universe or Stella.

But it will die. [sigh]

Man, am I a bummer today or what?

*Title is from Belle & Sebastian's sophomore album, The Boy With the Arab Strap. It's a song about the former head of Sire records who shepherded acts like Talking Heads, the Ramones and the Smiths. The song's sung by guitar player and every-once-in-a-while singer Stevie Jackson (rather than most-of-the-time singer Stuart Murdoch).

There's a great lyric there that says "I heard dinner went well/You liked Chris' jacket/It reminded you of Johnny/Before he went electronic," referring, if I'm not mistaken, to Johnny Rotten who went from anarchic punk band the Sex Pistols to electronic post-punk band Public Image, Limited (aka PiL).

I could not contain myself when Isabella Rossalini said, "you know I love my big beef and cheddar." I was hysterical.

Long live 30 Rock!
