Rolling Stone gave it 5 stars, but the way that publication jocks the older bands, the album would have to be a real stinker to get, say, four-and-a-half.

You're right, damn you, I forgot that one.

Moving right along...I've had the new Old 97's, the new(ish) DBTs, Springsteen's The River and the New Pornographers Challengers on heavy rotation recently.

You think? The band played all the songs, and Tweedy co-wrote two, and even sings lead on one. How is that not a collaboration? I guess it depends on how you define collaboration. I was thinking that it would be something where there was more shared creative input. Co-writing credits on two of 13 i...

Announcers Buck Martinez and Gary Thorne -- the O's are trying to hold on to a tenuous 5-3 lead in the bottom of the 8th. ...And the rainwater overflowing my gutter and slapping hard onto the little concrete walkway below. ...And wifey talking about a lot of different things.
