Warren Ellis' The 4 AM:3

Way to go, Mr. Ellis. Not only do you write about a million pages a month, you also find time to decipher, collate, and distribute for free all the music thrown at you on a weekly basis. (He's up to podcast three now. Check it out, along with 1 & 2.)

I haven't found time to watch my DVR'd Burn Notice season finale yet, and I don't write a goddamn thing most weeks.

Hey! Ho! I'm Old!

The 2 most-played songs on my iPod this week are by Bruce Springsteen.*

Maybe it's a by-product of being in a cover band for the first time ever, but I'm realizing that the Boss might actually be a genius. All in spite of my sneering at the mention of his name for the last 20 years or so.

Go to iTunes or wherever you whippersnappers go to sample/buy/pirate music and grab "Radio Nowhere" and "Thunder Road". Tell me I'm wrongheaded in my recent conversion.

*The third is Ryan Adams' "Halloweenhead" and the fourth is Stars of Track and Field's "Centuries", so suck it. I'm not ready for the home yet.

Warren Ellis Is Doing the Living For You.

So thank him.

(I wish people would send me free music just because I asked.)
