My next show

Mark you calendars PDX peeps, Dec 30 at the Crystal you can see Sleater-Kinney, Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks and Quasi (yep I bet Janet will be tired). If you don't have the Woods or Face the Truth yet then put them on the holiday wishlist.

On the opposite side of the musical goodness scale, we have Billy Joel, scourge of radio listeners everywhere. Going to school with pile of NYCers I had to listen to that jackass all the time. Slate has a nice dis/retrospective.

The new Broken Social Scene takes about five listens to appreciate. So don't despair, keep listening. Maybe it will be fewer for you as listens 2-4 took place while I was painting and slowly being poisoned from the carbon monoxide being pumped out by our broken furnace (one of the bad, bad things mentioned below).

But if Buffet and Joel went head to head?

This would be like bringing together two halves of a uranium core. The resultant bad music critical mass would detonate every CD player, iPod and computer speaker in a ten mile radius!

So we all have regrets about our high school music loves....

The weight of my regrets would snap a elephant's spine
