Zeppeling to tour without Plant?

Is this for real? I don't think it would happen.

Dear Hipster Record Store Clerk,

Thank you for judging me on the CD I bought yesterday. Our passive-aggressive altercation made me realize how conformist I am for buying an old Rage Against The Machine album. Your condescension was just the intellectual wake-up call I needed.

I discovered a new me yesterday, and my eyes were opened in a new way. Thanks to you, I realize now that the key to enlightenment is reading Pitchfork, watching High Fidelity, listening to Velvet Underground, having a tattoo of a star on the inside of my wrist, growing an ironic mustache, living in the Mission, and wearing a too-small sweater, multi-colored 70’s ski-vest, chunky plastic-frame glasses, a high school sports T-shirt, air-tight black jeans, and Nixon-era Chuck Taylors.

I had it all wrong, man. You showed me that a skilled job and a comfortable living is just a lie. I need to go to art school, have my parents pay my rent, join a Joy Division-influenced band, and wait for a record deal, like you. I’m totally missing out in life.

So thanks again for mocking me. I mean, at first I thought you were just a pathetic, frustrated musician trying to feel better about yourself. But now I see you’re an uncompromising visionary.

No one will ever understand you. You’re so different.

Concert Review | Kings of Leon bring blasting, danceable tracks — and Eddie Vedder — to Paramount show

Great review. Great show.
More in a bit.

Click the picture for a picture slideshow from the P-I.

Seattle P-I review says the show might have been better than Radiohead.

Snyer and I had sweet seats in the second row of balcony number one. After a nice pre-funk session in the Paramount Club we hit our seats just moments before KOL hit the stage. To my surprise the Paramount was packed and people were going nuts! I didn't realize KOL had become so popular in the past couple of years. They play a nice mix of old and new and then Mr. Eddie Vedder join in on Slow Night, So Long right before the encore. He looked like a flanneled-drunk grunge dude trying to dance his best Bruce Springsteen impression. Fun show!

McCain, Obama trade jokes, not jabs at NYC dinner

Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., shake hands as they arrive at the Alfred E. Smith Dinner at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York, Thursday, Oct. 16, 2008. At center is Cardinal Edward Egan.

My favorite:

"Contrary to the rumors you have heard, I was not born in a manger. I was actually born on Krypton and sent here by my father, Jor-el, to save the planet Earth."
