Take one minute... Pick one song.

OK You're on a plane that's going down. You have ONE minute to pick ONE Costello song that will land on a desert island with you for THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. This is a stream of consciousness type of excercise. No analysis or intellectual activity is permitted. And no hedging, I want one song and one ...

A review like this in a paper like that is a sure fire way to make our hero a card carrying Republican.

I say we strike while the fire is hot. Let's get another recall going!!

The words "Governor Costello" have a nice ring to them, don't they!!!

And speaking of the Wood Man, I think I read somewhere that he is all but ignorant of Elvis's music. I remember Tracy (can't recall her last name) saying that when she worked with Allen, she tried, to no avail, to get the director to open his eyes to some contemporary music, Costello specifically. M...

Aw C'mon cut Jimmy a little slack!

And the only reason he got the gig is that Woody Allen backed out of the late night spot at the last minute!

El Vez, Now that you've conquered the two wheeled monster, you might consider giving the King a few lessons, cause if I recall a comment he made recently, he can't ride one either. And speaking of that, I now feel slightly superior to Elvis because I CAN ride a bike, and, like him, I also wrote Beyo...

Intolerable Cruelty

Sorry to report that the Coen Bros have finally, to a certain extent, let me down (though Lebowski was a bit too disjointed also). I tried to like this movie. I went in trying to love it. I laughed a reasonable amount also, but in the end I couldn't seem to connect with any of the characters, or the...

I suppose there is a little bit of value in what she's written to her demographic. It's a review for the casual listener, who needs others advice about where to spend his money (even though most music shops nowadays let you listen before you buy, so do we need reviews?).. Yes, but isn't it a critic...

I don't see this album as an experiment at all. I think that these songs probably came from deeper inside Elvis than anything he has ever done. This album is an epiphany. An awakening to a new truly honest, beautiful type of songwriting that we've rarely seen from him before. This album is a classic...

No offense taken Sweet Pear... With my punk comment I was simply trying to illustrate that I think Elvis may have, with North, turned a corner down a path that he may never come back from. North is his most simply sophisticated album (if that's not an oxymoron). It's brimming with an honesty that ha...

Rope,

I'm not joking. My all time favorite record was Imperial Bedroom, but with each listen, North looms nearer the top for me. Honestly.

And you're welcome to join us down at the end of the bar any old time.

North is a masterpiece. It ranks high among his best albums. It may even be his best. 10, 20, even 50 years from now this will be remembered as his rebirth in the industry as an adult, and I don't mean a VH1 adult. You want punk, go buy a White Stripes record, or Eminem, both of whom I love. Elvis w...

I respect peoples' musical opinions, I mean music, as all art is, is subjective. But I still can't help feeling a little disappointed with Rose's review. I think that perhaps we should get a group together, head down to her place of residence with a bunch of shovels, kidnap her, and bury her alive.
