A new-to-me artist:  Jenny Lewis.  It's an album called Acid Tongue.

I had heard a bit of it in the record store (was playing) and enjoyed it.  I don't know much about her yet.  What I've heard so far was kind of folksy/country.  I believe that she also writes her own music.

Elvis Costello is one of the artists playing on the album.

They produce a whole line of mugs illustrated for topics ranging from Star Trek and Great Gays to Dinosaurs and Civil Liberties. I am tempted by the Shskespearean Insults mug.

CD, 1977 recording.

Arrived in mail today as import.  Normally I wouldn't go through the expense and trouble of ordering a CD of barely a half hour of music from a movie that I'm embarrassed I actually watched.  However, the substantial "borrowing" from Carmina Burana ("O Fortuna") during the opening credits and the skyscraper sequence is mesmerizing-- at least for me.

That looks interesting.  What are some of the musicians on there that you like?

Purchased here recently a copy of this Hollies LP:



I had heard some of it in another record store whilst shopping with a friend.  I passed on it due to the price, but my friend bought it.  He pointed it out at another record store (It was a copy at a much better priced that seemed to be in good shape.); I went for it.  :)
