baby, we were born to run



CF Torii Hunter, winning pitcher Johan Santana & 2B Mike Cuddyer celebrate the victory.

The good guys came away with a 2-0 win in game one last nite behind some truly excellent pitching & defense. Game two of the best-of-five series will take place tonite in the Bronx. Radke will be on the mound.

It's Wednesday, but this week you can go get your Tom Waits fix elsewhere. bigrockcandymountain has four "rare" Waits tracks up for your listening pleasure. The new album Real Gone came out yesterday, and Pitchfork gave it an 8. Similarly, it's currently rating an 82 over at Metacritic. Go pick it up.

MP3 New Pornographers - "Graceland"
Thanks go to largehearted boy for pointing me toward the above New Pornographers song, which will be on the upcoming Matador At Fifteen compilation. Speaking of Matador, they've posted some more info about the upcoming Pavement 2CD re-issue of Crooked Rain Crooked Rain: La's Desert Origins. It will be mine come October 26. Oh yes, it will be mine.

Apparently, the local Vote For Change concert that I mentioned yesterday was just fantastic. Neil Young also made an appearance at the marathon show, which both my 'rents & my pal JRDN attended (and supposedly had great seats for as well). I stayed home & watched the dull-dull-dull VP debate, and in hindsight I clearly should have tagged along with JRDN. Watching Dick Cheney talk for an extended period of time is not something I'd do again. Ugh. At least the Gilmore Girls were entertaining.

While I'm on the subject of last nite's TV, damn that Nip/Tuck season finale! I can't believe they're going to leave us hanging like that. It looks like somebody's going to be needing lots more surgery next year. "My face! My beautiful face!" There's only two more episodes of FX's excellent Rescue Me left in its debut season, and the penultimate episode airs tonite at 10pm ET.

Here's a few pix from that democratic fundraiser I went to yesterday afternoon. Doesn't Franken look like a tough guy? Loosen up, Al.

Hey-

Came across your blog today. Great stuff. The frequency of posts is quite impressive. As is the number of links in each post. I'm going to check back often during the baseball playoffs.

Noticed you were a sports fan. Hoping you could add a permanent Blogroll link to my "College Basketball Blog,"
collegeball.blogspot.com. I'd very much appreciate a link on
your site.

And would gladly return the favor, adding you to my blogroll.

Thanks!
