For the last month or so, a friend of mine named Seth and I have been working on putting together a Soundgarden page for the Web.... This is our proud and gleeful announcement that IT IS FINALLY DONE... (well, as close to done as it's gonna get until Seth gets back to school next fall) There's cool images, lyrics, tablatures, discography info, and lots of other cool band related stuff including articles from all kinds of places and some individual experiences with Soundgarden. Please take a peek and let me know what you think... the URL is: http://web.mit.edu/afs/athena/user/s/a/saperl/www/somms/soundgarden.html Enjoy! --the kimmenator ------email@example.com -or firstname.lastname@example.org------ "I guess we're not especially interested in showing a sensitive female side..." --soundgarden's kim thayil
