Re: Hilarious: John Stewart on Crossfire- must see

Ok, I completely agree that this video is awesome, and Tucker really is a dick. However, I saw the Kerry interview and I thought he (Stewart) completely missed a chance with that guy. I think Jon Stewart is EXTREMELY influential right now, and should have asked Kerry harder questions. He also did th...

Re: Assholes!

It will work against the Republicans. Trust the people. I know it sounds foolish, but trust the people. After all, the people are you and me (isn't that a song?). As for Sinclair, I say let them have their little station with their little Mark Hyman stupidity. I remember coming up in the 70s and 80s...

Re: Festival Express

Yes, this is the song. I found some copies of it on archive.org. Thanks for the tip.

btw - turns out this movie is coming out on dvd in November with additional footage. Great Janis scenes, and the footage of the Dead is priceless.

Festival Express

So I just got back from seeing Festival Express at the local megaplex. Has anyone seen this movie? It is absolutely fantastic - a great documentary about the Dead, Janis, the Band, etc. traveling on a train across Canada and playing shows. Garcia plays a little number called "Better Take Jesus' Hand...

God Bless Garrison Keillor. Exactly, exactly, exactly.

This American Life and A Prairie Home Companion. Perhaps the only two reasons to ever turn on the radio.

Re: The worst decade ever?

I guess my point is that it always seems that there is such potential in the world for good, and yet so much of it never happens. Hell, just looking at AIDS in Africa is enough to wipe the floor with any self-imposed obesity epidemic. And yet we essentially have a cure in our hands, but refuse to sh...

The worst decade ever?

So I am almost convinced that the last four years are the start of the worst decade ever. After figuring Bush will probably win the white house again, and watching the Video Music Awards, it seems that this decade is destined to be mocked and ridiculed years from now - similar to how we treat the 70...

Home Stereo Speakers?

So the wife and I just set up our new living room, and these old, big box speakers are just way too bulky and 1978-looking. I need some small, compact speakers for the components (receiver/cd/dvd/phono), but I have no desire for surround right now (am I the only one who thinks it sucks?). Anyways, h...

Tom Dowd and the Language of Music

Good review of the new Tom Dowd documentary in today's ny times. Here's the link, I hope it works:

This guy really was a genius, and this movie sounds like excellent viewing.

Have a good day!

Re: What's the big deal with Phish?

well, I have to stand up for the Grateful Dead here. Though they could unquestionably be one of the worst bands you've ever heard (out of tune singing, guitar, and playing the wrong chord all at the same time in front of 40K people), they could also be the best. When it clicked with those guys, it w...

Re: Bob Novak is a Douche bag

dude - Jon Stewart dubbed Novak a "douchebag" months ago - at least give credit where it's due. so, again, I have to wonder who the hell all of these pro-Bush people actually are. Where do these people live? How could someone actually bring themselves to chant "four more years!" at a Bush rally? Who...

Re: conan w/sonic youth

Tell you what, I got the "Dirty" re-issue and cranked it on a late night run to St. Louis last week. That record is really, really, good.

I know I'm supposed to like Evol the best, but man Dirty is just the shit.
