Hi, everyone! Excellent show last night. The horn arrangements were a real treat, particularly on Clown Strike and Allison. Highlights for me included American Tune (my wife, a musician, thought that it hadn't been adequately rehearsed but I didn't notice) and Slippin' and Slidin,' which was a compl...

Funny, but I was never a Gilligan's Island fan... I was however a major "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis" fan and can still recall Maynard G Krebs saying "gee, that's rough Riff" whenever he was asked to leave Riff Ryan's Music Store for listening to his favourite jazz releases without ever buying. ...

This was one of my favorite shows when I was a kid. Here are some interesting trivia about Gilligan's Island which I did not know, even though I probably saw every episode. They come from the obit in today's NY Times. Did you that: Gilligan was his family name. His first name was Willy. The Skipper'...

Bono the Pig

I like U2 a lot, and they have a great live act. However, I just received a notice that tickets for their 2 shows at the Meadowlands are going on sale next Monday. The top ticket price - $167.00!!! Sorry, but IMHO that is an outrageous price for a rock concert ticket. I used to think that Springstee...

I love OK Computer. I played it recently, and it still sounds wonderful. When my third and final son was born, I wanted some music in the car that would, I hoped in advance, make me feel like I was walking on clouds as I was kicked out of the hospital and forced to return home. I chose Let Down. I ...

I'll have to give OK Computer another listen. The first few times I tried to listen to it I couldn't get very far.

Now, if the comparison were with Yankee Hotel Foxtrot I'd have to say that Get Happy isn't even close.

I didn't say the priest was in brilliant disguise. It's the bride and groom that are. Did the priest/gypsy intentionally lie? Maybe. Or maybe he, too, was fooled by their brilliant disguises.

I'm abstaining from this vote because I think Brilliant Disguise is a great song that has a lot of meaning for people, like me, who have been in failed relationships and discovered that the person they thought they loved was really hiding his/her true self. The "gypsy" is the priest, metaphorically....

I went a little crazyand now have more tickets for the Radio City Music Hall shows than I can use. I know there are some fellow Wilco fans here so I thought I would offer them up before resorting to eBay.

I have to say that I am not impressed with most of Kojak Variety. However, the psychedelic cover of "Days" just blows me away. That one alone is worth the $15.00.
