So I know Expose looks weird up there (and here) without the accent over the E. It just looks like "expose," as in "to expose oneself." And while that might not be entirely inappropriate for them, it is still nonetheless not their name. But here's the thing: to make it easier for myself (because I am, if nothing else, lazy), I decided not to use accents. I play a good deal of music from overseas, where band names and song titles often have all sorts of accents. And, frankly, I can't keep up. If you've listened to the show, you know I certainly can't pronounce them -- and I also am not going to type them. Sorry. So, while such an accent over an E would be simple enough, in the pursuit of fairness....... Though I will probably change my mind on this issue soon. Who knows? Time will tell. So it goes. And other cliches.
