    The Decemberists on Scrubs? Is this good... or bad? I was channel surfing during commercials and heard "And I will hang my head, hang my head....", the opening track on The Crane Wife of course. I guess we all like to see our favorite indie bands make it big, but we also really don't because the snob appeal goes with it, at least that's the way I see it. I suppose that's a selfish attitude, but that's how I feel regardless.

    The Crane Wife is one fine ceedee though. I've had "The Perfect Crime" stuck in my head for the last couple weeks. What a great friggin' tune. "It was a perfect, a perfect, a perfect, a perfect, a perfect, a perfect, a perfect, a perfect criiiiiime!!!!"

    I call my bathroom Jim instead of John so I can tell people that I go to the Jim first thing every morning.

    If you say the word 'gullible' very slowly it sounds just like oranges.

    Hard not to notice more and more indie bands being used in TV shows/ads. Indie certainly isn't all that indie anymore, but I always think it's a good thing when the general public gets exposed to music that seldom gets radio play, even if it is only 30 seconds worth. What annoys me is when TV over-uses good songs. Case in point: Doves' "Words" on those NFL Network spots that run six hundred and fourteen times a game. Urrg!
