Yeah I sold him a ticket to a Marc Ribot show at the Knitting Factory 19 years ago and I was like "umm umm umm Landsdowne High School, right???"

I can actually really easily imagine Biggie doing a game show? I think he'd be good at it.

Dammit, I confused him and Shaun Cassidy. My fault.

October 16, 2019 on The Number Ones: David Soul’s “Don’t Give Up On Us”
When songs are going to get Premature Evaluation reviews, they're out of contention for Album Of The Week. (I like the Never Ending Game album probably better than the Lindstrøm one, but I didn't get an advance of that one.)

It's a 2 instead of a 1 because its mere existence does not offend me.

I'm gonna keep note of people reactions here, and if it bums a lot of people out, I'll probably go back to daily.

September 23, 2019 on The Number Ones: Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis, Jr.’s “You Don’t Have To Be A Star (To Be In My Show)”
Y'all really want this? I'd talked to Scott about the possibility of cutting back, and part of the reason I haven't done it is that people seem to like the consistency so much. But, I mean, it is a lot of work.

Yes, Stevie and Elton totally had theirs at the same time. Could argue that Drake and Post Malone are both at different stages of theirs right now.

A lot of weird shit happened with the charts in the '90s. With "Tubthumping" in particular, the band's label pulled the single when it started rising the charts, so that people would buy the album instead. And it worked; that Chumbawamba album sold like 3 million. But we'll get to all of that.

"The writer of this column has a HUGE disdain for all music which is considered 'pure and simple'. He likes his music dirty, low, and if possible, crass." 1000% true.
