The comments are back! At least for me, so holler away...

I had a new idea for what I think would be a TV classic. Ready? Really? OK, then get ready, because I'm just waiting for a network to take me up on...

STRAIGHT EYE FOR THE QUEER GUY!

Huh? Huh? Tell me that wouldn't be great. Imagine that advice...

On the box right now: Jessie Mae Hemphill, SHAKE IT BABY.

Peace...

Okay, I don't know if this is happening to everybody, but I haven't been able to get the comments to appear for the past day or so. If anybody's been trying to comment and can't, I do apologize, and I hope this'll change presently. If anybody's commented, and I haven't seen it, and you need me to, feel free to email me at the address to your left.

Went and talked to a high-school summer class today, ostensibly about the connections between rock and roll and hip-hop, but we ended up on the topics of: Confederate flag, anti-Southern stereotype, the "N" word, the criminal justice system, police harassment, economic racism, and the war. Don't know how I do it, but they seemed to enjoy it. Plus, it made my final musical selection - "B.O.B." by OutKast - all the more appropriate. Thanks for the opportunity (and for buying me lunch), Mr. C

On the box right now: Various Artists, THE DOO-WOP BOX, Disc 1.

The Dylan soundtrack, for Masked and Anonymous, is pretty strange, but also pretty damn cool. Great tracks from Dylan and his band, plus covers of Dylan songs by artists from the obvious (Grateful Dead), to the nicely surprising (Los Lobos, Dixie Hummingbirds), to the just plain weird (Italian hip-hop version of "Like A Rolling Stone," or the Japanese-language take on "My Back Pages," both of which work very well). Definitely a cool purchase for Bob-heads...

Just finished watching this week's QUEER EYE FOR THE STRAIGHT GUY on Bravo. One of my new favorite shows, easily...

On the box right now: Various Artists, MASKED AND ANONYMOUS

Hey...

The Bush/Cheney campaign now has an unofficial blog, here. I suggest we hammer them with as much negative feedback as possible.

I'm gonna pick up the new Bob Dylan soundtrack today. I'll let y'all know how it is later on...
