  1. Don't knock staring at walls. I do it all the time; it's a helluva lot better than staring at a sullen monitor.

    Show off.

  3. Thanks a million for posting that Richard Thompson MP3. The guy is a genius--who else can do a sea shanty with such straight face?--and the guitar solo is a sizzler as usual. I wondered if you had ever heard RT doing his unplugged cover of The Who's "A Legal Matter." If not, I'd be happy to send you an MP3. Information, as the saying goes, likes to be free.

  4. I have, indeed, heard "A Legal Matter", and you're absolutely right about it and him. Somewhere in the archives here is a brief post about seeing 1,000 Years of Popular Music live, which was a great experience. I'm going to see him again in concert on November 5th, in fact. Did you see the extra documentary on the DVD of Grizzly Man about the making of the soundtrack?

    And yes, Jackie, I was showing off. I was desperate -- the deadline for the column was looming!
