Who: One Ring Zero is a thoroughly modern klezmer-ish, rock indie band that cut a CD/DVD and Book entitled As Smart As We ARe, featuring lyrics written by famous authors at the request of band leader, Michael Hearst.
What: A rejection of the lyrics request from Michael Chabon back to Michael Hearst.
Why: Because Chabon sucks? (So says he.)
Wouldn't it be cool if everyone rejecting you followed up with a comment on how lame they truly are for turning you down?
