What's The World Got In Store
Wilco’s set this Sunday night (August 31) opening for REM in Missoula, MO will be webcast starting at 8:30 CST (9:30 EST). The Quicktime player needed to hear it will be available on the Wilco website later this weekend. They will be heading back into the studio after a pair of hometown shows in Chicago after September 18 and 19 to work on the new record… which pretty much means that the faint hope that Decibels Per Minute – or whatever the new disc would be called – would be released in 2003 are pretty much nil.
More acquisitions – the new Sloan disc and the final Posies album, Success. Pop pop pop. And comics: on the intense recommendation from Vic, I got Johnny The Homicidal Maniac : Director’s Cut and the Vertigo trade paperback, Fables : Legends In Exile. Fables was okay, a lot straighter and less elliptical than I’d expected.
Goddamn packing is alot of work. I have much crap. Much much much crap. I think some extra-strong Glad bags are in order.
