This has got to be the worst All Music review I've ever read, regardless of the quality of the music reviewed.

There's a snake in my boots!

During the Oscars, there was a raccoon on our porch.

We live in an apartment.

On the third floor.

I was by myself in the living room, watching the Oscars in the dark. I kept hearing stuff going down, and kept thinking one of my roommates was home. During a commercial I caught sight of the beast.

I think those bottles have something to do with it.

...You're the raccoon, Spoon.


Is there something that's going on in your life now that's going to affect the new record?

I've been hunting crocodile.


Nice. Every time I read a new Spoon interview I inevitably read about a band or type of music I've never heard of and an opinion of Britt Daniel that usually matches with my own.

Here: Gary "U.S." Bonds and the bits on "selling out" and listening to music by entire album. And not liking young country.


I guess I'll see that movie now.

And even though I'm talking as if I was fully awake when he called. And even if I don't remember some of the first things he said...

Excuse me.

Excuse me, Maygen Utecht, Bayside Publicist, but

THE SMITHS were not one of "Punk Rock's most distinguished artists," nor do they sound shit like the band you're trying to pimp. Maybe The POOPsmiths, but not The Smiths.

Also, don't send me three promotional copies of albums that, given the choice, I'd rather remain sick than listen to.

When you're sick...

1. nothing is quite as soothing as "Peter Coppola New York Hi-Define (Hair)Styling Mudd" programming on HSN at 3:14 a.m. ... not.

2. being tired is good (it means you can sleep).

3. making a Spoon t-shirt is a top priority.

4. doctors only know how to a) test for things you know you don't have b) tell you everything that's hurting looks just fine and c) recommend doing things you've already been doing for days.

5. Duke sucks.

6. you miss an event you've been pining for for months.

7. although you acknowledge that Prince is probably a big jerk in real life, his halftime show still kicked your butt.

8. you're too tired to finish blog l
