Word, Miss C. There is NOTHING on TV right now. It's a massive wasteland. This is on the Sundance channel, here in the US anyway. You guys probably have it on regular telly.

Have we talked about how good Elvis Costello's Spectacle is?

I just finished watching the one with Roseanne Cash, Kris Kristofferson, John Mellencamp and Norah Jones. EC is a great, unassuming host, and his unpretentious manner seems to create a vibe of total casualness, like these music obsessives just happened to find themselves at the same kitchen table on...

I finally, a few weeks ago, shelled out for M. Ward's Post-War and I loooove the first song so fanatically I've had trouble getting into the rest of the cd. But there are lots of stellar songs. The one thing I don't instantly capitulate to is the mood of exalted, post-party rhapsodic-ness. I don't k...

It's late to throw this in but I have to mention Corin Tucker -- while not "the" quintessential rock singer she's "a" quintessential one -- her voice is distinctive, and her singing has passion, urgency and power. Technically, she's a better singer than Mick Jagger, though techni...

He seemed too out of it for it to be a stunt. I think he's on drugs and it's scary. Doesn't what happened to his brother function as a warning (or is it more like a beacon)?

Whew! I got the right password. The reason I don't post on the boards is I can never remember my password (and I've asked Jake for it so many times I'm embarrassed to bother him for it). Talk about lame, I know. So, just to add another voice from the very-old-fogey end of things: I don't have anythi...

Hi Shecky, I really like your 2001 picks -- I'm obsessed with Bill Callahan lately. Woke on a Whaleheart is gorgeous. But I've also been playing Supper which is entrancing. And Knock Knock is great though his songwriting gets more interesting as he goes -- I think. I might have to buy his whole back...
