Reader Chuckie Wendig from Perkasie, PA, writes, "Your webjournal is stupid but I listen to music so I sent you this e-mail." Thanks for writing, Chuckie, and tell your wife I said 'hey, baby.' Chuck recommends you listen to Lily Allen, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Knife. There is no link to the Red Hot Chili Peppers because, c'mon. It's not like they're obscure or anything. Lily Allen is known for rhyming the UK store Tesco with the Italian term al fresco. The Knife is reputedly Swedish electronica something-or-other.
Recent parents Bear and Jill Weber say the soothing melodies of Blue October and The Postal Service help put new baby Jaydon (spelled with an "o" not an "e" because it's "more masculine") to sleep each night. I second the motion for The Postal Service, whose music Carrie sent me a year or two ago. In an associated project, the lead singer for the Postal Service is the same guy from Death Cab For Cutie, which should get points for excellent name alone.
I believe that was the extent of the responses to my musical inquiry. If I missed your submission, I apologize. The guys at Penny Arcade! recommend this Weird Al Yankovic submission, "Don't Download This Song." When Penny Arcade links to sites, they sometimes become so flooded with hits that their websites shut down, a process they refer to as becoming "wanged." When I attempted to listen, it was "wanged" so I was unable to listen. Let me know what you think.
This has been your linkapalooza. Future linkapaloozas as merited.
