JJ- You're right. If the Cardinals had it, they'd spend it (or at least a big chunk of it). Cards are a top 10 team in payroll, 75+ mil or so? But with the Yankees it's rediculous. As for what JJ said about any team would spend like that if they could, I agree completely. I'm not faulting the Yanke...

Re: The Cardinals scare me.....

Because I'm a Yankee fan. Jesus Christ they're good this year. 22 combined Gold Gloves? Jim Edmonds is maybe one of the top 5 center fielders of all time. There's something very classic about this year's version. It should be a fun fall, especially if we get Yankees vs. Cards. Life long Cards fan h...

Please lead me out of ignorance! Explain bit torrent

Could somebody please give me an abreviated explanation of what this is? Maybe post a link that will explain it all? I'm not completely helpless, or stupid for that matter...well, maybe a little. :) I obviously understand it's another data transfer process, but I gather it requires special software?...

Jeff made the most important records of his life without Jay. I'm sure he looks back on Uncle T with some fondness but by 1996 he had surpassed anything Uncle Tupelo accomplished. Same with Jay, the safe bet is they live in the now. I would grudgingly, MAYBE agree that Jay and Jeff have accomplishe...

I may not be the best person to answer as I have the Live In Seattle CD but not SSBL (on its way though!). Anyway, LIS was with mark Spencer and Eric Heywood, where as SSBL is with Canyon, so I'm thinking SSBL will be a bit more full musicaly, and some tracks will be definitely more up tempo. LIS is...

Re: Columbia or STL for the 11/18/99 Show

I was asking about 11/18/99. The show I have says it's from Mississippi Nights in Columbia. Is this correct or did they do two nights at MN in STL and this was just mislabeled? Withought knowing what the exact text is that implies that the show is from "Mississippi Nights in Columbia", my best bet ...

Well Hank, growing up as a kid, Hosoi was one of my idols and I listened to a lot of punk rock. The first alt country band I was into was a group that wasn't really alt-country- they were more punk that was influenced by country called the Meat Puppets. I liked them a lot and they got me into more ...

I'm about halfway through and I too have found my preconceptions challenged a bit. Intellectually I know it's just a book, and that there's a built in bias, but some of the text has me scratching my head. The parts that dealt with the breakup were the most troubling. If what is said in the book is t...

What's in your rotation? (CD changer, etc.)

I know this has probably been done before, but here goes... Right now at home I have a 6 CD cartridge featuring Trace, Jay Farrar Live In Seattle, Live Rust, A1A (Buffet), Exile On Cold Harbour Lane (by A3, the band that does the Sopranos theme song) and a U2 compilation CD I made. In the car are on...

Tour dates??

Looking at the tour page, I'm kinda scratching my head here. Given the history that Jay has with certain Midwestern venues, I'm surprised to see no shows scheduled for St. Louis, Columbia MO or here in Lawrence at The Bottleneck. Is the Tour page on this site listing ALL of the shows? Will more be p...

Hell, I even have the original No Depression CD from Rockville Records, a 14 year old CD! That should count for something, right? The important thing is that...
