I guess somebody should post this

To paraphrase Kurt Cobain's mom, someone else just joined the stupid club.

You know what else is great?

All things considered, I think Figure 8 has turned out to be my favorite Elliott Smith album. I think the critical consensus is that this one doesn't quite measure up to Either/Or and XO, but these days I listen to Figure 8 far more often than either of those. It's still got all the bitterness and sarcasm that you expect from an Elliott Smith album, but it's not nearly as mopey: there are lots of upbeat rock songs, and even a definite theme of a man who is determined to get his life together and not succumb to his darker impulses. It's a shame that that obviously didn't work out.

There WILL Be a Post This Month

... and since it falls on me to choose what it will be, I'll choose: "my biggest clients... Hall & Oates!"
