New Blogs and Stacks of Wax

It's been a musical day here in the blog writing mines. It started this morning, when we decided to forgo the usual ritual of catching up on podcasts in favour of Spoon's stupendously awesome Ga Ga Ga Ga. It was a very good decision.

(And as a side note, we love Brunt and McCown, but you can only listen to Maple Leafs talk for so long before your head collapses.)

The New Kid in Town
We generally don't link to new Blue Jays blogs this early after their inception, but we're giving it up for The Bottom of the Order. Written by semi-frequent commenter /A (ooh, mysterious handle!), BotO is a nice addition to our little collective of ne'erdowells blogging on the Jays. As a bonus, /A has an excellent music blog called THIS IS OUR MUSIC., which demonstrates their excellent taste in tunes. (And we say that, because it's pretty much the same as ours. This is all subjective, you see.)

More Hot Wax
And while we're on music, Blairsy's latest links to the Mitch Melnick's Team 990 blog, where MM gets all Brokeback and wistful, remembering the good old days of hanging with Blair in the MTL ("I wish I could quit you, Blairsy!"). Mitch also talks tunes, including the Drive By Truckers (not our favorite, but we respect their fighting style), Ryan Adams (we love him, but not as much as he loves himself) and Jeff Buckley (*sniff* We wish we could quit you, Buckley!)

So What's This Got To Do With The Jays?
Nothing. We are really getting down to the end of what we can blog about until pitchers and catchers report. It's like we've finished all of our beer for the night, and it's 4 am, and we're starting to mix Blue Curacao with apple juice because that's pretty much all that's left.

Namechecked by The Tao, I am humbled. Truly. Many thanks.

As for Spoon: without question, their awesomeness is boundless.

And the anonymous moniker amounts to little more that a vain attempt to infuse some mystique into an otherwise bleak existence. Sadly.

You have the subtitle "The New Kid in Town" in a post about music and there is no mention of The Eagles? What kind of show are you running here anyways?

I've had a rough night and I hate the fucking eagles man.

Try OJ with the Curacao - it goes dayglo green !

Did you know that "Desperado" was never released as a single?

As Mojo Nixon sang: "Don Henley must die."
