Ten Thousand Favorite Songs, v. 75 and DON'T THINK TWICE

A damn fine film.

-oh the wave of Bob to come.  and he's the world's best harmonica player, care to dispute?

-- Mekons' Last Dance is just about perfect

---best tribute to a fallen friend.  Joyful and mournful in equal measure.

----like Ian Curtis and Arthur Russell and Stephen Merritt's son

-----indie tries for yearning and ends up with whiny 99% of the time but Mr. Maus knows what he's doing.  He yearns, Jerry!

Ten Thousand Favorite Songs, v. 72

-best white lady voice of the twentieth century there I said it.

--we are a blessed people...how do you have pipes like that and still give the keys such lovely space to stretch out and set the table?  I love that restraint so much.  It's like when LeBron lets Kevin Love shoot the basketball.  

---i'm telling you, hamster balls.

----We need to vault this stuff like the Svalbard Global Seed Vault

-----I love when the horns come in at the end. it sounds like they're on the other side of the football field, raising a fanfare for a sunny afternoon
