Golly. I have the first 2 and really like them.

PJ harvey might be a fading memory but the Gillian W cd is the kind of record that I might listen to every night for months.

And I have 15 and 29.

Cat,
you don't live three miles from a crazy guy that buys Cds ten at a time three times a week.

I've heard about 23. I bought 15. Kept only 7. There is a LOT of real snoozemeister stuff on there.

I woke up from what I thought was a nap the other day, but Kate Bush's new album was still playing.

On the title track of Kate Bush's "50 Words for Snow," she whispers the consecutive #'s and a guy says a snow word. When she gets to different points in the count, she sings things like, "22 more to go, 22 more to go."

Her studio is in her house and she hardly ever leaves her property. We can tell, Kate.

On her next album, I hopwe she does a sultry version of "99 Bottles of Beer."

I like Bjork and Feist, but I still haven't been able to get into either of those albums. I didn't even know Laura Marling had a new album.

I've got five on that list. Haven't listened to the PJ Harvey album yet, although I will fix that this weekend.

One of the doctors I used to work with subscribed to Uncut and brought the issues into the office. I thought it was, indeed, a good magazine.

On his "Get to know the staff" questionnaire, he mentioned it in his "Likes". He was quick to explain that Uncut magazine is about music ...
