Maybe I was a tad harsh in my Juno soundtrack for the Weekly. Among other things, I declared that I’d rather be sentenced to a Groundhog Day–like eternity with Richard Simmons, clad in an American-flag unitard, leading senior citizens in the Soulja Boy dance rather than listen to it again. I also said that I’d prefer be forced to read a 943-page David Foster Wallace essay on A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila, or receive the torture treatment prescribed by Method Man on 36 Chambers (the one involving getting my asshole sewn shut and being fed until I look like Juno.) But the truth is that if there is a hell, I imagine that this record will be the soundtrack. Well, that and Man Man.
