In the Blogs: Holy Baloney the ‘Mats are everywhere edition

In the Blogs

Over at Minn Post Jim Walsh offers up a glimpse at the liner notes in the ‘Mats reissues coming out next week.

Earlier this week, local TV Station WCCO did a pretty nice, lengthy piece on Laurie Lindeen calling her the “coolest lunch lady.” Includes a very awkward Westerberg family picture, and snippet from the Fakebook event last summer.

VH-1 is offering up a stream of Let it Be (Deluxe Edition).

The Village Voice weighs in on the ‘Mats reissues.

Paul Westerberg — An American Hero.

Carrie Brownstein lists her 11 favorite ‘Mats lyrics over on NPR.

In non-‘Mats news, I am babysitting my nephews Nolan, 4, and Liam, 3. They are cleaning the bathtub because they want to. Is that bad?

Hitsville is listing songs about rock and gets to Left of the Dial.

P.S. There’s still time to vote in the first round of ‘Mats Madness.

    The Lindeen link shows video footage of the Fakebook event from last summer. There were cameras set up throughout the Fitz, but I’ve never seen pro video before. Is this available anywhere?

    I have no idea. Drop WCCO an e-mail and see where they got the footage. It’s a good place to start.

    Good idea, Paul, I’ll do that.

    BTW, when is your new cd coming out?

    I’m not Paul. I’m Laurie.

    Hi Laurie.

    When is your new book coming out?

    Hi Laurie, I checked out that WCCO thingy & it was great to see a Zuzu’s Petals video…never knew one existed. You remind me of Christine Ebersole…not too bad.
