Over 30: A friend of mine played <i>Murmur</i> for me in late 83, and I saw them on the <i>Reckoning</i> and <i>Fables</i> tours--with all those underground bands (Dream Syndicate, 3 o'Clock, True West) as openers. They were perfect to close out high school and begin college. The fade began for me a...

Don't know how I missed that post before. The whole trilogy is great...it's bound in a compilation called Berlin Noir . Yeah, I'll definitely read the other two once the semester is out, and I have time for fun reading again. I just finished Alan Furst's The World at Night last week. It didn't grab...

Just got Steve Wynn & the Miracle 3's Tick...Tick...Tick this morning. So far it's not grabbing me quite as much as Here Come the Miracles or Static Transmission, but if you like his stuff, it's worth it for "The Deep End", "Your Secret", and "No Tomorrow".

Steve Wynn & the Miracle 3 -"Tick...Tick...Tick" New Steve Wynn? How did I miss that coming out? I was listening to Static Transmission on the drive to work this morning and loving it. What do you think of Tick...Tick...Tick ? Ooops totally misread that. If anyone's heard it, I'd be i...

I'm enjoying it quite a bit, Russ, thanks! Especially "Better Things", "No Return", and "Tell Me Now So I Know".

Can't wait for this Ray solo album that actually looks like it's finally going to happen.

Yeah, I'm one of those dorks with a new toy, too. So, I watch Diggnation and listen to Ricky Gervais and This Week in Tech. Last week I listened to one by this thinsafetypin guy that was pretty cool, too!

Hey, did you happen to see the most beautiful girl in the world? And if you did, was she crying, crying? Well, thanks for that trip back to my childhood, Sven. Throw in "Watching Scotty Grow", "Cat's in the Cradle", and "Don't Mess Around with Jim" and my head would explode. Sorry...there's an imag...

I'm reading Philip Kerr's March Violets, which is really good stuff if you're into noir detectives.

Just re-read one of my all time favorites...Fup by Jim Dodge. 60 pages of greatness!
