Yesterday morning, I had no idea who Amy Winehouse was. I saw the name on somebody’s LJ tagline, I think, but nothing more. Last night, dropped over and gave me a listen, and I copied a bunch of tracks from both her albums, then listened to it on the flight over.Then I was sitting in […]

  Of the past 72 hours, I have slept for about 3. So a more detailed accounting shall await. In the mean time, I give you The Dresden Dolls in concert:   (click for bigger image)

Jukeboxes are fun. Whether they’re the old spinning-45’s getting-stuck-until-The-Fonz-hits them Wurlitzers or the more modern CD based ones, they give you a feeling of participation. Especially if the bar isn’t too full and several people work the jukebox in turn, responding to the other’s selections. And the coolest bits? When the jukebox is entirely digital […]
