Good afternoon Pseu! My girlfriend is a huge Liz Phair fan, and swears blind that the self-titled album is the best thing she's ever done, and after hearing Extraordinary, I'm starting to think she might have a point.

hey pseu and everyone. i like this liz album too. it's the first one i heard and i used to sing along to "why can't i" in my room with a hairbrush when i was 9. when i found out like 10 years later that that song/album was by THE LIZ PHAIR that i'd heard so much about i was confused as hell

Edward Burns had a bad teevee series on TBS in 2015 (written by, starring in, produced) that went one and done, and hasn't done much since. Probably smirking a bit less lately.

Thanks (I think) for the help, Pseu! Always wondered what Dave Hill's music sounded like - didn't have it down as "Ween covering Cosmic Dancer", and I am kinda here for it.
