I just finished that long-ass book on the Beatles by Bob Spitz. It was a really good read, though I hated the ending (they break up! two of 'em die!). Really, the ending part gave short shrift to the recording of Abbey Road, which on many days is my favorite Beatles LP. Would have liked to have know...

Years ago (1984?) Oingo Boingo released Only A Lad that included songs with lyrics that seemed a little right of center. Title track seemed to be a slam at those wussie libruls who would rather blame "society" than punish a juvenile delinquent. There was also a song called Perfect System t...

I'm like the Sock Monkey. I've got a long work commute in a car with a six-disk changer, which gives me the opportunity to listen to new CDs straight through. All other places I listen to the iPod with headphones and on various home and office playing devices. I need to get a Bose or comparable iPod...
