» Full Dark, No Stars - Stephen King's new novella questions mankind's ability to trust others.

 » The Top 30 Albums of 2010 - Fashionably, fabulously late, our favorite music (and believe me, there was a LOT) of 2010, the year that some have called the best year for music ever. And only some of those fools work here. Plenty of usual suspects, lots of ties and a few surprises that I won't spoil, including our unexpected #1.

 » Live: Surfer Blood/The Drums at Lincoln Hall, Chicago, IL - Remember when Weezer used to put together records that you could sing along to and rock out to? That's what Surfer Blood's show was like!

This is so bad and campy and irritating I absolutely love it. I especially love the absolutely horrified look my husband gets on his face when he walks into my office and hears me playing this, mangled, loungey versions of Ozzy Osbourne classics. Hands down, the best tracks on here are the piano-heavy "Flying High Again," accompanied by a slow, plodding bass and gentle percussion; the electric keyboard, muzak-backed "Mama I'm Coming Home"; the finger-snappin' rhumba of "Crazy Train"; the wailing saxophone, speed-walking bass lines and scat spoken-word bits of "Bark At the Moon" - shit, they're all equally "good." Bud E. Luv apparently has a book about being a professional lounge singer out on St. Martin's Press, too, which gives him an added validity that I just don't know how to react to.
