I was in the camp of "I refuse to ever spend that much money on a music player." And then I didn't have to because I got one for Christmas last year. It's pretty awesome throwing a ton of CDs on there or just your favorite songs off certain albums. I've got well over 1,000 songs on mine and it's lik...

Dero put Moby in his top ten of the year. Nuff said.

I don't like siding with Christgau, but AGIB is awful. And I'm someone who loves Wilco. Being There, Summerteeth, and YHF are albums that I love, but for some reason AGIB is the most disappointing album I've possibly ever heard.

Festivals have been struggling for a long time. I don't know if it would have been feasible, but maybe if they had it in a smaller venue? Perhaps cut out some of the acts? People just don't dig sitting on the Tweeter lawn all day anymore.

Utopia Parkway is not bad. However, I cannot for the life of me handle an album like Welcome Interstate Managers. Cute little pop songs for an hour straight is too much. I mean, the song from the high school quarterback's perspective is just awful. And after a few listens "Hey Julie" and "Bright Fut...

I think Mass Romantic is one of the best pop albums of the past ten years or so. Electric Version is just plain awful. It's inexcusable with the talent in that group to put out something that was as bland as say, Remy Zero. Newman's album is solid top to bottom. Not one misstep. And Bejar has put ou...

I agree with him on Mark E. Smith. He's got one of my all time favorite voices, even though you can't understand him most of the time.

There was a discussion about that BSS, Walkmen, and MM show on Sound Opinions message board today. Sounds worth the 1 1/2 drive.

But I'm pretty sure I'll be at the Streets, possibly Spoon, and I will even be checking out Madonna.

Q101 was playing their new song over the weekend. I think it's slated for a July 20 release. It sounded similar to "Main Offender," but then again everything on Veni Vidi Vicious sounded similar to each other.
