One asked if they'd heard the new Diana Krall record and they said no but they'd like to. The first went on to say that he's listened to it quite a few times and he thought that the songs were terribly overwritten and became quite obtuse. :shock: (I told you it was gossip.) I haven't heard the enti...

Why does the author of the article keep referring to him as "Mr. Costello"? Isn't this supposed to be reserved for people who are dead??

The press junket was out in force on this last night. Kevin Kline on Dave, Ashley Judd on The Daily Show AND Conan. Of course Conan never even talked about the movie. (is he on coke? What is up with the skeleton Conan these days?) Anyway, Kline mentioned Elvis singing in the movie. Does he also make...

The Beatles were the ones who changed the face of Rock and Roll forever, pure and simple. Every artist performing today owes them a debt of gratitude in some way. They were the best, pure and simple and we are lucky to have so much music to listen to.

I knew I'd piss some people off! Elvisisking63, uh, I WAS old enough to experience the Beatles, so I'm assuming that makes me older than you. I played Abbey Road (and others) over and over until my parents were going insane. And, I do agree that 2-3 listens does not a critique make. It's just my ini...

I just bought All This Useless Beauty, and will start my listening adventure tomorrow....didn't mean to be blasphemous about IB -- guess it's just "to each his own", but I think I like "Blood & Chocolate" better than IB, and certainly WIWC. Maybe it just takes a few listens. Some songs are truly gre...

I thought I read somewhere that "St. Telmo" was a pub somewhere too... I personally can't get enough of When I Was Cruel. I just love all the different musical textures in it. My favorite, though I don't have all that many CD's (yet). Just got Imperial Bedroom, and so far....well....OK, but WIWC is ...

Oh yeah there are rules. You have to run names through the Jockey Club before they become "official". Some basics -- no more than 18 characters, no naming after famous people without authorization from the person or estate, no naming after famous horses, and no lewd or suggestive names. Though Mike ...

I think these 2 horses are obviously EC inspired. Too bad they are not runners. Forty-Five is in a very good barn to (Nick Zito's, I believe).

I'm guessing it was a steeplechaser (if he called it a jumping horse, and it was a race horse). That is interesting. Thanks for sharing!

Weird, I had the same experience (kind of!) I worked at my college radio station in Fresno back in the 70's when he first came out, and we "pushed" his music because it was so cool. Lost track of him, except in that casual occurrance of seeing him on TV, or catching the rare radio song. Then 2 month...

EC and racehorses

The "Elvis when you least expect it" thread made me think of this. As you can probably guess from my "handle", I'm into horses. I have noticed two 3-year-olds listed this year that were of interest. One is "Forty Five" and the other is "Spooky Girlfriend". I don't think either has started, and Spook...
