“Many songwriters are craftsmen. Chris Shepard is that, and he is also an uncompromising original artist with a unique, darkly comic vision. He is also able to write affecting lyrics and memorable melodies in conventional song format. As a performer, he has a powerful and rhythmic guitar technique, and sings with exceptional strength and range. He deserves widespread recognition. ”

Q: Exactly how many licks DOES it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?
A: 40,324 regular licks. The number drops dramatically when light suction is applied while the tongue makes light fluttering licks around the Tootsie Pop.
