the sky is falling, the sky is falling!!!! omfg!!!!!! thats what the news here in atlanta was like the past two days. panic breeds panic and they had me buying what they were selling. sure its kinda cold, and it snowed like an inch, but come on already.
btw, go packers!
btw part two, i dont know if i need sleep or something but i teared up watching apollo 13. luckily norris’ walker texas ranger is on to feed my need for more testosterone. on the flipside of crying, its been a long time since i laughed as hard as i did after reading these amazing chuck norris facts. i know they are old news, but its been a while since i read em.
if all you really want is straight up, beer swiggin rock ala the mats, lucero, drive by truckers, etc. then you should totally dig massachusetts, the dirty truckers. call me simple or as i like to think of myself, a purist, but sometimes, actually more often than not, i dont need my music to be any more than just loud and gritty, productions value be damned. washed and ready, their first new one in six years, is kinda like a whisky and cigarette fueled love makin session, it aint pretty. which is why i am absolutely loving it. washed and ready is twangy, punky, hook laden and meant to be played loud.

barton carroll sounds like a dude i can get behind, or well, at least musically speaking. he kinda reminds me of modern day nick lowe, which is cool. he’s toured and played with eric bachmann/crooked fingers, azure ray, dolorean, and micah p. hinson. his new record, the lost one, comes out on tuesday, 1.22.08.
what? edie brickell’s back? well, i’ll be damned. she’s playing with harper simon under the monikor the heavy circles. this song’s pretty cool. kinda gotta some kind of mid-easterny type of vibe to it. their new self titled record comes out on 2.12.08. i still cant believe she’s married to paul simon.
