Let's see. . .there was the truck-loading job that was as ridiculous as the "I Love Lucy"-in-the-Candy-Factory. . .or the dealership parts-driving job, when the only way to meet the schedule was to completely ignore speed limits (although paying for tickets was not in the paltry salary). . .or the d...

I'd like to know why there are suddenly so many performers with the prefix "Lil'," as being diminutive doesn't necessarily seem to be a requirement.

When the only venues you can play include the Soaring Eagle Casino in Mount Pleasant, Michigan, and various states' fairs.

Has anyone noticed that YHF sounds like it could have been a Kinks album? OK, so Tweedy sounds younger than Ray Davies does now, but check out "Muswell Hillbillies" and I think you'll find profound resemblances.

Can you picture it? Teenage boys all over America with Meg White posters on their bedroom doors, the Handsome Family doing the milk mustache ads, and Wilco doing the Halftime Show at the Super Bowl?

I have a Mac with OS9 and have learned that the world is Wind...

Re: The Burger King

The guy who now runs B.K. was previously head of Northwest Airlines. The "Have It Your Way" slogan is not likely to be renewed. In fact, you may order a burger, pay for it, and be lucky to get it at some undefined point in the future.

Jeff--Methinks that Fogarty, having had brought suit against his former bandmates, probably doesn't want to spend too much time within the legal system. And doesn't some baseball show (admittedly during the summer) use his "Left Field" (or whatever it is called)? He can probably use the scratch from...
