In the Blogs: You’re in love and I’m in trouble edition

In the Blogs

I can’t stop singing “I’m in Trouble” over and over and over in my head. I hope that telling you about it will help. Somehow, I doubt it.

He’s in the lead as of right this minute, but you can insure that doesn’t change! Vote for Jim Walsh in the MN Book Awards.

I have no idea why this City Pages article from 2003 popped up in a Google Alert, but it did. So now you can read it in case you missed it the first time around.

Who can resist a guy who namedrops Westerberg in his personal ad? Nobody, that’s who.

I am inexplicably drawn to blogs that feature good writing and are sorrta-kinda named after ‘mats lyrics (at least in my head). Go read I Feel Like a Hundred Bucks. Now. You know you have nothing else to do.

Fear and Foklore ponders getting All Over But the Shouting and then waffles.

In honor of the Bob Mould concert I will be attending tonight, here’s a great and thoughtful look at Bob’s career over at The Cedar Lounge Revolution.

Because the ‘Mats/Japan connection never ceases to amuse me, here’s a review of All Over But the Shouting from the Daily Yomiuri.


This one gets linked
for giving the world this sentence: If Squirrel Bait were so hot way back when because they supposedly sounded like Hüsker Dü with Paul Westerberg singing, then “Noodles” sounds like Hüsker Dü trying to play “Stink” but still managing to sound like crappy old Hüsker Dü instead. . .

A short missive on The Ledge.

    Not Paul related at all, but the review in the Japanese paper of All Over… made me think of this scene from one of my favorite sitcoms, when the Stephen Root character has his autobiography translated from Japanese back into english:

    Have fun at the Mould show tonight, Jodi. Wish I could be there. It’d be great seein’ y’all again.

    Squirrel Bait “Skag Heaven…” worth the price of admission.

    Peter Searcy sounded like Westerberg getting chased out of a bar.

    I’ll second that, enjoy the show. I really like his new album… thanks for kind words re post on CLR. Like this site too… I’m a big fan of the Replacements…

    Nice article, WorldbyStorm.

    I really like Husker and Mould’s solo stuff, but I’m not a huge fan of his electronica music. Body of Song and District Line are a nice blend of guitar and synth, but Modulate and Blowoff do nothing for me. He does a nice job with it, though, and I’m glad that he’s found an audience.
