Our buddy Tony Pierce is profiled in a story in the New York Times today about blogging. It's kind of a silly story, but it's great to see Tony get some of the attention he deserves. It's silly because it talks about why people blog without ever mentioning that it is a new form of art - a creative outlet just like making a movie, writing a song, or painting a picture. But what do you expect from the NYT?

We had a power outage in our neighborhood last night. I'm pretty sure that Sean and I caused it by listening to Queen II a little too loudly. Oh well. As Sean would say, "Rock Roll!!"
Another album and Sean and I are really into right now is Bruce Springsteen's "The Wild, The Innocent, and the E Street Shuffle." It's really an amazing piece of work which manages to blend many different moods and textures with a core of freewheelin' rock and roll to take you on an emotional roller coaster ride.
But it's not just early 70's music we're listening to around the house. In between repeated helpings of Burl Ives, Willie Nelson, Tom Waits, and Webb Pierce, we're also spinnnig recent releases by The Shins, The Thrills, The Corvids, and the best kid's (or kid sympathizers) music I've found around, Dan Zanes.
