Rad.  Looks like pretty poor sound quality (somewhat wider frequency response but much lower S/N ratio than AM radio), but I'm impressed they can even print anything half-way listenable at all at 600dpi.

As I rule I purchase every new album from Bonnie 'Prince' Billy (real name Will Oldham, formerly known as Palace Brothers|Music|Songs|etc.). Am incredibly curious how his latest release will sound, err,  smell. .

It's easy to forget that the music video as we know it was honed to perfection by the Top.

ZZ Top themselves play a role in the narrative, both by playing themselves as performing band members and as rather ethereal spirits who encourage and assist the young man by providing him with the car keys that enable him to go for a very long drive with the women.

Grant Green is the only jazz guitar player I really dig.  Soulful and sparse. Perfect for a rainy day.

The Japanese eggplant is killer. The techno music will be the death of me. Once I had to wait fifteen minutes in line for the restroom while two patrons were grabbing a quickie. That's the sign of a good date spot.
