Re: Isn't it time for message boards to make a comeback?

I'm semi-active on two message boards (both professional) and nobody knows a damn thing about music. I miss those conversations!

Re: Entirely new test thread

"Testing. Testing. Is this mic on?" My listening time now: The Mountain Goats/John D have like 30 albums in one form or another, and I'm sort of working myself through those lazily. I did finally see them live and that was terrific, can't recommend it enough if you like to sing along. I've...

Re: Get well soon, Pete Libertine

I just caught The Libertines on Jools Holland and, all things considered, Pete looked pretty good, and the song kicked. Go Pete! I'm pulling for you, man.

Re: GloNo Recs That Still Get Heavy Rotation

I listened to "At the End of the American Century" today while working. It's really a very good album and ideal for a certain Friday mood.

Re: The Greatness of LCD Soundsystem's "All My Friends"

Whoa - there are more of you back than I expected! We also did our first (and so far only) trip to Disney World about five years ago, and while it was fun enough, holy Christ it was expensive for a family of five.
