Wait, backup. What I should have typed was:

Apocalypse Sometime Other Than Now.

Yeah, that rolls of the tongue better.

It seems like if you were going to include an Avett Brothers album though, you’d go with Emotionalism. At least that’s what I would have done.

Whaaaa? The WGN Morning show is the reason I get out of bed in the morning. I’ve never seen a less professional or more entertaining news program. Larry Potash is a local treasure. I once went to the Michigan Ave tree lighting parade just because the WGN Morning Show people were in it.

No one likes “Born in the U.S.A.”? It’s not that “fun to listen to”??

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but have you actually listened to the song? It’s incredible!! The relentless snare, the arena-sized synthesizers, the girty lyrics, sustained Boss yell at the end — this song all but forces you to stand up and pump your first in the air when it comes on. It would be fun to listen to if the only thing it did was remind you of Bruce’s sweet denim-vest-over-leather-jacket combo and headband in the video. At the very least, me, my dad, and Win Butler like the song. Maybe you should try signing it in Karaoke — it’s one of personal favorites to do — then tell me its not a fun song

Did anyone else notice that Natasha Richardson had on a different, less revealing dress at the judges’ table?

I always thought Long Division was the most obvious single contender on the album.

November 10, 2008 on New Death Cab For Cutie Video – “No Sunlight”

Haven’t got to listen to the song yet, so no comment on it. But I wanted to ask: Is it just me, or does Jack look a bit like Michael Jackson in that picture above? I thought that’s who it was a first.

September 30, 2008 on New Jack White & Alicia Keys Video – “Another Way To Die”

Looks like facial hair and receding hairlines are strict requirements for Built to spill membership. I bet Perfect from Now On was awesome.

That’s awesome Suf. Now how about a new album? Seriously.

Phew! I thought for sure that Kernal’s Daughter guy would be here again berating us all for like Sigur Ros. Let’s hope he missed this post…
