In the Blogs: I took a nap so that’s why this is so late edition

There’s a trailer up for “Let it Be” the movie based on the ‘Mats. Take a look and tell us what you think. [via Late Night Wallflower]

Also, you should know that I only took a nap because I have the plague and who the hell gets sick with spring knocking on their door? I do, that’s who. My life, it blows.

There’s a new poll over there ———-> You should go vote and settle a raging debate. Incidentally, a lot of y’all need to take a giant chill pill. You know that banter about how wrong someone is about choosing Sorry Ma over Let it Be can be friendly. Seriously, it’s not like I Will Dare was calling Sorry Ma a dope smoking moron or anything, though it totally should have! Damn, we’re ‘Mats fans aren’t we supposed to be filled with piss and vinegar encased in a crusty carapace of bitterness?

If you only read one thing this week, read this: Sucking in the Seventies: Paul Westerberg, the Replacements, and the Onset of the Ironic Cover Aesthetic in Rock and Roll (It’s Only Rock and
Roll But I Like It) [via KEXP blog]

Incidentally the student newspaper of the University of Lethbridge knows that Let it Be is an underrated masterpiece.

That is all this week, I am going to go vacuum the sludge out of my lungs. Have a good week!


I am the queen of the underground, a bad ungrateful bunny.

    Man, I couldn’t make it through that Let it Be trailer…you can keep it.

    I want Hansi’s film to finally be released…that shit has been talked up for years.

    that things never gonna be released… but im waiting too.
    the suicane documentary on paul that was never released is my favorite moie ive seen. cant believe its not released officially. The bit where he explains that G is his favorite chord cuz he can flip the audience off the easiest from their is maybe my favorite paul sound bite ever.

    “Seeing Through Paul” is an interesting portrait of Westerberg…funny that Coleman “Coley” Laffoon worked with the director Ondi Timoner. Also I would have liked less time devoted to Don Was…

    I dig that G chord salute as well as the comment comparing the Mats to Nirvana – PW must be jealous that Cobain got famous – to which Paul replies “& got dead from it. Man, I wish it was me.”lol
