THINGS TO LISTEN, EAT, READ

When I get into something, really start digging it, I tend to over exaggerate that somethingís status for a few weeks. When chatting with friends or other prisoners to my phone calls, I go on and on and on and on. This week, Iím chained to the post-move clean-up, and my phone service has been jacked since the relocation, so Iíve not had a chance to drop this nonsense on anyone. Today readers, you take it from me! Here are my current and sometimes hyperbolic recommendations!

FOR THE EARS:

Spoonís Kill the Moonlight is one of the best records Iíve heard all year. I read this interview with Spoon and some of the things said got me thrilled to purchase the new CD even though Iíve not given a damn about the band in the past. Here is an excerpt from the interview:

Question: Britt, a friend of mine sent me an e-mail claiming that "The world will collectively shit themselves when they hear Kill the Moonlight."

Answer: Well, that's what we want. We want people to shit themselves.

FOR THE STOMACH:

The sandwiches at Georgioís Subs on Greenwood and 145th are putting up a good fight and possibly nudging Blimpie out of the number one seat on the Best Fast Food Sub Shop list. The fact that theyíre just down the street and the parking space in front of the door is always open helps. For Blimpie, Iím driving all around downtown in repetitious squares of One Way streets praying to the Lord of the Parking Space to save my soul.

FOR THE EYES:

This Amazon.com Top 1000 Reviewer, an investment banker based in London and Frankfurt, is cracking me up. This fella likes the 1 out of 5 star action, and seems to actually believe heís invented a form of political activism by using it! Not a fan of the Chomsky, this guy. One of the books this guy rails is called The Trial of Henry Kissinger by Christopher Hitchens. I quite liked the book myself.
