Dear GYA, Oh, would you look at that -- Limp Bizkit broke up. I suppose all good things must come to an end. Well, so long, you rap-rock gods of the early 2000s. You know, they really did do it all for the nookie - -so we, the fans, could take that cookie. I guess I'll never find out what that means. Anything happening tonight to lessen my sorrow? - James Murkel, Magna
