Citing that he’s “a really big fan of ‘Remain in Light,’” Obama has responded by withdrawing all US support for Israel. The normally combative John Boehner approved of his action, noting, “I think I speak for all Republicans in Congress when I say that I’m more than willing to throw my support behind anything the creative forces behind ‘My Life in the Bush of Ghosts’ propose.”

When/where isn’t DMX yelling?

A well-deserved high placement for “Tonight,” here. Nicely done.

And that’s a cogent point. It’s possible that my reading of his reaction to the arrest and what he and Ferreira had to deal with afterward wasn’t the most sympathetic.

Here’s the thing that upsets me about all of this: he seems oddly miffed at the notion you need a valid driver’s license in order to drive a car. Call me a fascist, but I think that’s a pretty sound requirement.

He also rightly criticizes how our justice system treats drug offenses while (seemingly) failing to realize how softly he and Ferreira were treated. Modestly successful young white musicians with decent lawyers just have to attend some meetings (which they apparently bitch about having to attend) while inner-city kids of color often get jail time for these sorts of offenses. If he thinks the justice system dealt them a raw deal, he ought to think about the broader context a little.

While I agree with you about ATDI if we’re talking Relationship of Command, the bulk of In/Casino/Out fits comfortably under the emo umbrella.

The one thing I’d add to this list is anything from Rival Schools’s United By Fate, a great album too often neglected in all these emo reminiscences popping up of late.

This is going to be an extremely popular album in 2004.

When asked of his directing style, Durst said, “I’m pretty hands on. During takes I’m often on the sidelines shouting, ‘Move in now move out! Hands up now hands down! Back up, back up!’” He also expressed a preference for long takes, noting that he prefers to “Keep rollin’ rollin’ rollin’ rollin’.”

I just worry that with shoes like those even the most robotic of dance moves are liable to cause a high ankle sprain. Annie Clark: laying her ankles on the line for art.
