Artist Track Album Comments New
  Salutations. I'm typing this playlist on Sunday afternoon while drinking a delicious cup of Cafe Bustelo, listening to Glen Jones and X. Ray Burns, on the radio, and feeling bad for the fact that I made fun of the French twice during last night's show. Don't get me wrong... I like the French quite a bit. I will even demonstrate my enthusiasm for French people this summer by traveling to France and serving as the best man at a wedding in which a friend will marry a lovely French maiden. I took one semester of French at college, where my professor was a devilishly handsome Parisian man. He taught me some rudimentary French words and phrases, and in return, I taught him how to change a flat tire, and explained to him why the misfortune of others is regarded as a high form of comedy in America. I also once played him a CD by the French punk rock band Les Thugs, which he informed me is French for "The Thugs." I'm hoping to work this useful bit of knowledge into the speech I will give at the wedding. Any angles or pointers you may have would be appreciated. Merci.

  Not much in the way of snarky comments from me because I have houseguests this week and also because I have to run out now and pick up a present for a friend's birthday party tonight. I promise to return to my usual quirky (ahem) self next week. In the meantime, I have decided to take the liberty of lowering the national threat level to GREEN -- which when equated with rock bands -- means that we are at a Jefferson Airplane level of terrorism alert.
