Studiodave back in effect. So much to say so little time. Here's some observations:
"The Newsroom" - Favorite New TV Show. A Canadian show with 3 years under its belt. Picture "The Office"" meets "Curb Your Enthusiasm" with a critical edge of news and politics. Atlanta's PBS shows it in reruns on Friday nights so check your local listings. If you can't find it, rent or buy it. I will refund the costs 120% if you don't love it.
"Taking the Long Way" - Dixie Chicks. I'm sure this album is not as good as I think - but it is amazing. The Rick Rubin produced work has a little bit of everything. I had heard it spun that it was more of an Eagles sound, but I don't hear it. What I do hear is a damn gutsy album where people say what they believe, stand up for it, and tell you they'd do it again. Kind of a "Bring it on" statement with some actually backbone. I proudly bought the album and enjoyed the sneer of the gum smacking soccer mom behind me.
The Atlanta Braves - This is as painful as it gets. I have nothing else to say.
