  1. tough call on the Lebowski vs Pgroove. more Lebowski shows would fix that. August better have more than one show. Bring that shit to CT!!!! sorry cartelli. brock put me in tears on JamCruise8 with Naive Melody. gotta vote for it.

  2. Wow, lots of great songs in this competition, but I think Naive Melody is far and away the best cover in the competition. GROOOVE!
