Love your icon.

Also, one for the stack:
Not every RPG soundtrack is by Nobuo Uematsu. Thankfully.

Not every piece of music is a song.

OK, so I modified the formula slightly, but still...!

For those in the south, not every sweet carbonated beverage is a Coke.

Not every pain reliever is aspirin. Or Tylenol, for that matter.

Not every vampire book, I am pleased to report, is Twilight.

Not every college football player is dumb.

Not every "woodwind" instrument has a reed in it.

Not every rap or hip-hop act/performer glorifies guns, drugs, and loose women. You'd be pleasantly surprised.

Not every irascible rant is by Andy Rooney.

Not every pithy quote is by Mark Twain or Albert Einstein.

Not every band with a synthesizer is Stereolab. (I HATE this, I got so many mislabeled mp3s this way!)

Not every board game has dice and a big square track you move your pieces around.

And this one's a bit off-theme, but it's a 2-hit combo for conservative pundits: Not every dictator is Hitler. Not every drug is crack.

Oh, and one baphnedia might appreciate: not every pissed off Iraqi is a terrorist.

Not every clever poem with a weird rhyme scheme is by Ogden Nash.

Like this couplet by Richard Armour:

"Shake and shake the catsup bottle;
None will come, and then a lot'll."

Off-topic, "Me First and the Gimme Gimmes" is, imho, one of the best band names ever! "OK Go" is a very close second.

Not every good movie is by a big Hollywood studio.

Not every good song is by some big-name radio band.

Not every good TV show is by one of the big networks.

Not everything meaningful is by some antithesis of the "big" companies, because sometimes they get it right too.

Most of the time, they spend far too much time getting it wrong that the "right" parts are overlooked so people can say, "______ is STILL evil!"

That being the case: Not every piece of buggy and bloated software is from Microsoft. Not every cool and trendy gadget is from Apple, Inc.

Not every funny piece of journalism is by Dave Barry.

Not every clever comedy monolog is by George Carlin. (Heck, most emails purporting to relay a Carlin routine are wrong. He is to comedy what King Solomon was to Proverbs.)
