Ah, you're an evil genius Worpswede! I was a high school freshman in 1981 and have heard all of these way too many times. Each of these has songs which make me plug my ears and sing loud and desperate gibberish. I'm pretty sure I'd only make it to track 6 of 4 , the first track of Get Lucky , and tr...

Re: Mac Weirdness

Thirdly, I can't right click on anything. I'm used to copying the urls off from images and such online to add to BB and Blog posts. Doing that on the Mac is awkward. Another way around this is to change your System Preferences, so you can tap the trackpad with two fingers for a right click. Look in...

I was trying to think of voices I like but which could, when repeated, drive a hunover frat boy up the wall. (Ted Leo, Colin Meloy, Roy Orbison, John Lydon) How about adding Jeff Magnum to the list? As much as I love In the Aeroplane Over the Sea , wouldn't a dose of "King of Carrot Flowers Pa...

I'm so embarassed.

Sad emoticon.


I didn't know whether to be embarrassed or proud. And should it really count for/against me if I played with imaginary lightsabers when I was 11 after seeing the first Star Wars?

Haven't had much time to check out new music latey, but the new Sloan album is a keeper. A new baby in the house and you can't keep up with all the new music? Shocking! I've pretty much blotted out how completely exhausted I was during both of my kids' first years. I've had a good time the last cou...

I've been playing The Hold Steady's Boys and Girls in America pretty much non-stop since picking it up on Tuesday. At first, I didn't think it was going to grab me the way Separation Sunday did, but it has. This one seems like more of a whole band effort--not just Craig Finn yelling lyrics out over ...

That's such a beautiful part of the world. We drove down from Eugene and arrived at the ocean just as the sun was setting, then encountered a herd of elk in a field just outside of Arcata. Really loved Patrick's Point State Park as well. It really is gorgeous! I miss that area, but make it back whe...
