The thing about country music over the last 10 or 20 years is that it isn't really country music at all, it's pop music, not much different than Rhiana or Justin Timberlake or Beyonce or whatever else is pop. It just comes in a package that says "Country" on the front. They where a hat, sing about t...

I have been listening to the Xanadu soundtrack a lot lately in part because my 4 year old is in love with the movie. We hear it at home, in the care, everywhere. Not ELO's best work, but better than Captain and Tenille. There is a brief part in the film where the beautiful Olivia Newton John goes co...

In reference to like or dislike of country(ish) music, Has there ever been a Jay Farrar related album that didn't have some country influence on it?

Happy with the final result. Amazing the accuracy of Nate Silver and using MATH and STATS to predict the outcome. Watching last Sunday, Dick Morris, George Will, Karl Rove, et al, predicting this "landslide". Just didn't see it in the polls, knew it wasn't going to happen. Now they are all acting sh...

Tuesday

Who's winning. Who should win. Why? My take. Obama takes electoral college, popular vote close. Obama should win. Romney is probably a nice guy, but we don't need George Bush part 3, and his running mate and his agenda is pretty far out there to the right. Obama's had his chance I always hear. Yeah ...

Caught Jay and Mark in Tallahassee on that tour with Brandon opening, was great. I loved Brandon's stage presence during the Jay Farrar/Canyon tour. I thought for sure he was going to fall off the stage or knock something over with his bouncing around. Great shows those were, Austin and Dallas on th...

Nick Cave's soundtrack to Lawless, a film he wrote. Comes out tomorrow, but you can hear it here: http://music.aol.com/new-releases-full-cds/spinner#/4 Has Ralph Stanley doing White Light White Heat, it's worth it for that alone.

I believe this show has replaced the Wire as the greatest television show in history.

Sad it's ending, but I know it will go out great, not some Sopranos Don't Stop Believing bullshit ending.

Hank/Walt confrontation has to happen.

The Search

Been listening to The Search a lot lately, hell of a great album.

Then listened to On Chant and Strum on vinyl, this is a FANTASTIC album.

why wasn't that just the album released on CD?

these are great great songs, and great performances.

Love it.
