This whole thing is just so silly. Yes, Paris is an idiotic, spoiled asshole-- who wouldn't agree about that? She's fish in a barrel for people without courage to do something more important with their outrage. Now that it's over, instant catharsis-- Justice has been served! Hurrah! It reminds me of...

Yes, and the world is such a different place after this landmark case. :roll:

wow! a 4 year bump. back when i was in my mid-40's! And I was in my early 40s... ugh, how depressing. But yeah I thought it would be fun to have a looooong-reaching bump.

Bump!

Happy longest (or shortest, in the Southern hemisphere) day of the year.

Amazing, isn't it? Of course we heard about this locally, and there was a piece in the Times recently, too. It really is humbling to think of the age of some of these creatures, and of what we've done to the world in just ONE of their generations. We're but a blip in time, but oh, what a blip. I rea...

Fine, wreck my cheery story, why doncha. 8) Well, he's a damn good actor, in that case! What's odd is that the show wouldn't have checked for previous appearances, etc. In any case, I suspect that Popbitch has swung this story too far in the other direction-- i.e., that his appearances were not head...

So, I finally find a show I can afford to go to (Fratellis at the Paradise) and they cancel the effing thing. My suspicion is they're going to move it to a larger venue, probably Avalon. Luckily I immediately bought a ticket to Cat Power (at Avalon) instead-- more expensive but still do-able. Most f...

I had an iTunes card gathering dust so used it get this. Sort of mad at myself for buying some (5) of these recordings for maybe the 5th or 6th time, but like I said, I hadn't used the card for months so why not. First thing I'll do is burn it to CD, cause recently my straining Mac mini crashed, and...

Hoping to see the Fratellis next month at my fave club, The Paradise. It's only $20 and they seem like they'd be fun live. Will try to get my ticket next week; I'm pretty sure it will sell out.

Not that the Wilburys are all American, but here'd be my vote for a UK iteration:

David Bowie (heresy!)
Mick Jagger
Paul Weller
Shane MacGowan
Nick Lowe
Neil Tennant

Wild Cards: Elvis, Richard Butler

Come on, it'd be a blast hearing them ham it up together, no?

There might be a story, but I've always just assumed it was tongue-in-cheek, fake American folksy. See also: The Coward Brothers. I've always found it funny; it smacks of the Flying Wallendas or something... http://www.wallenda.com/wallenda_images/famb%26w.jpg All I can say is, I like the music, and...

Totally agree about Cash-- he's just what I meant in terms of knowing how to USE his voice in a fantastic, expressive way. No one like him, period. Also I keep forgetting to add, to the Bests: Chrissie Hynde-- fantastic combo of raw talent and inimitable, straight-on style. If I could wake up tomorr...

I'd classify Kurt Cobain as artful, meaning he was in control of his voice within its limits (exactly the opposite of what I wrote earlier about Eddie Vedder) and used it as his own legitimate aesthetic style, same as Dylan or Neil Young, to name just two. . . Some people are fantastic musicians who...

When does Samuel L. Jackson find the time to sleep? How many movies can he be in at any given moment? It seems he's continuously in something now playing at a theater near you.
