In the Blogs: The Happy Anniversary to the Bad Idea Whose Time Has Come edition

In the Blogs

For those of you who are like me and don’t subscribe to rock and roll magazines like Spin, it was a delight to see The Replacements article go online. It’s a pretty great read. If you got the time give it a look.

If you haven’t been living under a rock you know that Rock Band 2 is set to include the ‘Mats’ “Alex Chilton” and a song off Guns ‘N Roses “Chinese Democracy.” Does that meant it includes two ‘Mats related songs?

Over at her Petal Pusher blog, Laurie Lindeen talks about how she has unwittingly turned into Nanny Narc.

I am linking to this record review for two reasons:
1. I know not one, but two people named Ryan Smith (and neither of them is the dude mentioned in the review)
2. I like the writing, and that the writer said, “It also could be the best six Paul Westerberg songs that Paul Westerberg neither wrote nor recorded. That’s a huge compliment (If you just said “Who?” just stop reading now and Google the genius that is Paul Westerberg, The Replacements, and head out and purchase his amazing solo work. Now. Really. Google. Now.).”

Finally, I have decided that today is our first anniversary. We made a few random posts in June of 2007 and one on like July 3, but it really seemed to get kicking in on the 16th of July.

Yay us!

    Congrats on the anniversary – and thanks for posting the link for the Spin article. Some great quotes in there. Now I just want to check out all the youtube early Mats stuff and watch them fly all over again.
