    Michael Chabon

    I think he's one of the best writers alive. The Coen brothers are supposed to be making The Yiddish Policeman's Union in the near future.

    Ernest Hemingway

    Papa is the man. I've only read The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell to Arms, The Old Man and the Sea, and some short stories. A Clean Well Lighted Place is fantastic. I went through a huge Lost Generation phase in high school. Got all into disillusionment so The Sun Also Rises still stands as my...

    Jane Austen

    I read Northanger Abbey recently. She did a good job of undercutting the Gothic novel and how people take books too seriously, neglecting reality. Also, John Thorpe is an asshole.

    Jonathan Franzen

    I've read The Corrections and Strong Motion. I immensely enjoyed both. HBO is coming out with a series for The Corrections. I'm pumped. Has anyone read Freedom? I heard a character goes to a Wilco concert.

    Barry Hannah

    I've only read Airships and loved every story. I go to school in Oxford, MS which is where he lived. He taught at Ole Miss. It's a shame I never got to take him for a fiction class. I really need to read his other stuff. Water Liars is a great story.

    New Radiohead Feb 19

    This album is baller! I dig the bass/electro aspect and have come to accept that you never know what to expect from Radiohead but take their releases with an open mind. Little By Little, Lotus Flower, Separator, and Give Up the Ghost are all phenomenal songs. Here's a link to the newspaper...

    Mustard? Really?

    It's going to be a long four years guys. That's all I have to say. Fox News.. fair and balanced. Obviously.

    Wilco (the album)

    I dig it, although, it took some time to grow on me. From reviews and such, it seems some people just can't be content with a content Wilco album. Oh well. This is an assured Jeff Tweedy. He knows what's up. Just listen to him. Wilco will love you baby. 4/5

    Conor Oberst and The Mystic Valley Band - "Outer South"

    I like it. White Shoes rules. I get the Bob Dylan vibe on some songs. What I would give to see Conor and the MVB open up for Wilco...

    Damn. Well, they'll come around soon enough. I really wanna see Jeff Tweedy solo. If you don't have it already you must get Jeff Tweedy - Sunken Treasure - Live in the Pacific Northwest. The live version of Sunken Treasure is amazing. Agreed.
