funny - i was listening to box of rain at the dentist office yesterday -- the dentist gave me her ipod and it was almost all the Dead

Why Marshall Crenshaw wasn't the biggest rock star in the 80s is beyond me. Did he ever record a song that wasn't perfect?

Cool tracks. man. One time in concert, Dylan sardonically played that before ending -- with no encore. Got a good chuckle out of that.

Today, found a jewel case for Lloyd Cole but can't find the disc -- yet. That guy's sharp.

Hope all of your business was taken care of and you had a nice weekend!

I love Marshall Crenshaw.

"Get Up Offa That Thing" has been coming up on my iPod a lot while I've been running lately. Nothing like James Brown to get you moving.
