Dumb Dumb Dumb
24 – What I want to know is what kind of a world do we live in where you can’t trust a drug lord and terrorist to let you go after you break him out of prison? For shame. I am at least comforted in the fact that even from the safety of the heart of CTU, Kim can still manage to be taken hostage. At least that will never change. You are my rock, Kim Bauer. Your ineptiude a compass that can guide my ship through even the stormiest waters.
I am all out of Preacher. I binged on all the trades – bought and devoured the final volume, Alamo, last night – and now there’s no more. I’m not dissatisfied with how it all wrapped up, to the contrary – I thought it was great. It just reaffirmed my belief that the best stories are the ones with endings, even if their conclusions leave the reader feeling bittersweet and wanting it to never end. I want more Jesse, more Tulip, more Cassidy, but I also know that their stories are done. Sigh.
So what else should I read?
That last bastion of power pop Not Lame Records is releasing a tribute album to Glasgow’s finest, Teenage Fanclub, next year. What A Concept is scheduled for a February 2004 release and features cuts from Redd Kross, Superdrag and a host of other bands that, honestly, I’ve never heard of. But apparently they all owe something to the Fannies. From The Catbirdseat.
There’s a complete Shins live set from the Austin City Limits Festival this past September available for download here. Link from Largehearted Boy, who has some other neat links to downloads today. Go peel slowly and see.
